During the 1980s, the Korean government created a special summer camp for "gyopo" or foreign born teenagers where they could spend their summer in Seoul to learn about their motherland. While the intentions of the program were honorable, the activities of the teens were not. The program was eventually cancelled after a few years because the government simply could not control the youth. Seoul Searching is a teen comedy and coming of age film, based on a true story about one of the summer camps that took place in 1986. Written by Benson Lee

Full of Humor, Heritage, and Heart.
28 August 2018 | by chickenjacksonSee all my reviews

Think Breakfast Club meets American Pie meets Korean drama. Silly but surprisingly able to pack in a lot with good amount of heart. Smart fun writing that understands Koreans (according to my Korean-American wife), plus a great 80's soundtrack and it's on Netflix...for now!
