The first episode of the new webseries Ktown Cowboys is now up and running. I had the chance to check out the first five episodes presented as a feature over the weekend at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. The theater was packed, and the audience had a blast. Take a look at episode one:
Obviously, the action is just getting started, and the night holds much more hijinks for John and his new K-town cohorts. Here's the official description of the series:
When John Kim (Lanny Joon) relocates from the comforts of his picket-fence, WASP neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia to the alluring city of Ktown Los Angeles, the land of sultry women, Booking Clubs, and late night taco trucks, his arrival immediately sparks the most epic night of his life. His cousin, Jason (Shane Yoon) introduces John to his audacious crew (Peter Jae, Danny Cho, Sunn Wee, and Bobby Big Phony Choy) who teach John the basic yet inventive ways on how to survive the perfect Friday night in Ktown. Special appearances by Justin Chon (Twilight) and Bobby Lee (Mad TV).The cut we saw was a little rough, and it still needs some tweaking, but overall, it's a lot of fun. I'm told that the project was born out of a desire to tell a story about a regular night in Koreatown. So... you know, dudes being dudes. Anyway, for more information, go here, and watch the first episode here.
