When a highly accomplished conductor decides to leave her life in New York behind to take up the challenge of reviving a struggling Korean orchestra, her past will threaten to destroy everything she’s worked for in “Maestra: Strings of Truth,” a new Korean mystery thriller now streaming on Disney+.

A visionary violin player from a young age, Cha Se-eum quickly swapped her bow for a baton, traveling from Seoul to New York City, where she became one of the world’s most accomplished conductors. After a hugely successful career, Seeum returns to her homeland when it becomes clear her past is about to be exposed. Once back in Korea, Se-eum will attempt to revive Seoul’s failing Han River Philharmonic Orchestra while also working to uncover the mysterious person who is threatening to expose her secret to the world.

Produced by CJ ENM’s production powerhouse Studio Dragon, the series features Lee Young-ae (“Dae Jang Geum,” “Lady Vengeance”) as famed conductor Cha Se-eum; Lee Moo-saeng (“The Glory,” “The World of the Married”) as Se-eum’s former partner Yoo Jung-jae; Kim Young-jae (“Reborn Rich,” “Stranger 2”) as Se-eum’s husband Kim Phil; and Hwang Bo-reum-byeol (“The Secret Romantic Guesthouse,” “The World of My 17”) as Lee Luna, the young concertmaster of the Han River Philharmonic.

“Maestra: Strings of Truth” is written by Hong Jung-hee (“The Taste of Curry,” “Changall’s Birthday”) and is directed by Kim Jeong-kwon (“Ditto,” “Lie After Lie”).
