Video: South Korean soldiers parody Les Miserables


A group of Korean soldiers have made a parody video of the musical Les Miserables.

In the short film the hero Jean Valjean is a soldier on an airbase in South Korea, who wants to skip shovelling snow so that he can see his girlfriend.

Despite the fact that this is a send up, the video is surprisingly polished and the performances are impressive.
