On June 8, the Korean Culture Centre UK is hosting its popular Korean Film Night with Seoul Searching (Benson Lee).
Inspired by the 80s teen comedies of director John Hughes, Seoul Searching follows a group of foreign-born Korean teenagers that are sent to a summer camp near Seoul in hopes of them reconnecting with their lost cultural heritage.
The film covers the love, sex and partying that is typical of most films in this genre, but its exploration of the matters surrounding identity is the central theme. Seoul Searching shows the struggles of coming to a sense of acceptance, as a second generation immigrant, of a lost cultural heritage and national identity.
Admission is free, but booking is essential to reserve a place.
