'Les Misérables,' as Done by ... the South Korean Air Force (Video)

The Wrap

"Les Misérables," Victor Hugo's classic novel-turned-musical-turned-movie musical, has been adapted yet again.

This time, in a satire by ... the South Korean air force.

In this version, we get Jean Valjean as a soldier desperately trying to save his relationship while juggling his tyrannical superior officer's demands to shovel snow off the base.

Sure, Valjean's struggles aren't quite as emotionally burdening as those Hugh Jackman version went through in Tom Hooper's Oscar-nominated film, but the 13-minute short does manage to squeeze in a number of musical sequences with impressive interpretations of songs like "Look Down," "I Dreamed a Dream" and "Do You Hear the People Sing."
