A John Hughes-inspired teen movie about a group of diverse Korean high schoolers from around the globe who come together in1986 at a camp in Seoul—where their parents have sent them to learn what it means to be Korean—during a life-changing summer. From the director of Planet B-boy. “Seoul Searching is rude, funny, silly and poignant. Above all, it’s kind; Mr. Lee understands that belonging is a feeling that many of us may never experience.” (NY Times)
