Ktown Cowboys Is A Game Changer for Asian American Movies

I’m so excited to talk about this movie. I learned of this production through various Korean entertainment websites that I frequent. I was more than curious about it and couldn’t wait to check it out.

Ktown Cowboys, directed by Daniel Park, is described as a coming-of-age movie, but it’s more like an “adulting is hard” movie. Essentially it’s the live action counterpart of a web-series about a group of friends who are wading through the last remnants of immaturity as they finally begin to accept responsibility for their lives.

It sounds deep, but it’s not. In fact, it was hilariously awkward and frank. If you have ever seen 21 & Over, this movie is basically showing you the life of the Asian kid after college if he were Korean and his friends were also Korean. Completely the opposite of 21 & Over though, the whole Ktown Cowboys movie shows

Ktown Cowboys Review [SXSW 2015]

For any Americans who need a crash course in Korean-American culture, look no further than Daniel Park’s Ktown Cowboys. Playing like an instructional video for those of us who are unfamiliar with Los Angeles’ Koreatown scene, we’re introduced to a group of characters who take time out of their busy partying schedule to drop factoids about Korean lifestyles. The whole thing feels like an episode of Korean Entourage in some ways, since each character pretty much mirrors Wahlberg’s “fictional” crew, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing for us karaoke-loving clubheads who are interested in other drunken cultures.

This is a straight-laced story about how bro-bonding can overcome the most dire of circumstances, which is nothing new, but the location of Ktown does offer more intrigue than an equal story about generic Californians with the same problem. This is Ktown, bro! Time to kick out the K-Pop and play some Starcraft!
