Seoul Searching is an 80s Teen Movie about a group of diverse Korean high school teens from around the globe, coming together in 1986 to experience the most important summer of their lives. They meet at a special summer camp in Seoul where they were sent by their parents to learn what it means to be Korean; a side to them they know little about. Although the intentions of the camp were honorable, the activities of the teens were not.
The goal is to shatter Asian stereotypes and discover the next generation of Asian stars.
