Ji-ho is a promising pianist who has been studying and playing abroad for years, but her career takes a blow when she is struck with stage fright. Returning home, Ji-ho is reunited with her old school friend, Seung-ryong, who, although now in his twenties, has been left with the mind of a six-year-old following an accident.

Seung-ryong's only family is his younger sister, Ji-in, and he takes care of her by trying to sell toast outside her school, much to her embarrassment. Ji-in later becomes ill, and Seung-ryong's other friend, Sang-soo, falls into trouble with some gangsters. With all of his friends and family facing problems, Seung-ryong becomes an unlikely saviour.

BA:BO was adapted from a popular webtoon of the same name created by Kang Full, which ran from January to April 2004. Director Kim Jung-kwon, himself a fan of the comic, was approached directly by Kang, and described the film as being faithful to the source material.

  • Cha Tae-hyun as Seung-ryong. A fan of the original comic, Tae-hyun stated at a press conference that he "cried [his] eyes out" when reading it. Rather than draw his inspiration from mentally challenged people in reality or as portrayed in other media, he felt it necessary to play the character as written in the comic. Cha gained eight kilogrammes during production, and was unable to lose all of that weight for his wedding in 2006.
  • Seo Dae-han as young Seung-ryong.
  • Ha Ji-won as Ji-ho. Playing the role of a frustrated pianist, Ji-won performed on the piano herself for the film. Although she had studied piano as a child, she received tutoring from singer/songwriter No Young-shim, who also taught her subtle gestures and postures.
  • Choi Sulli as young Ji-ho.
  • Park Hee-soon as Sang-soo.
  • Park Ha-sun as Ji-in.
  • Greena Park as Hee-yeong.
  • Jeon Mi-seon as young Seung-ryong's mother.
