First look at the coming-of-age teen comedy 'Seoul Searching'

Benson Lee's latest indie feature is set in a 1980s Korean summer camp.

The upcoming indie feature film Seoul Searching is a coming-of-age teen comedy written and directed by Benson Lee. Set in the 1980s, the film is based on Benson's personal experiences in 1986 at a government-sponsored summer camp for Koreans from around the world to learn about their heritage. It turned out to be one of the craziest summers of his life. And now it's the inspiration for this film.

Seoul Searching, starring Justin Chon and Jessika Van, was shot in Korea over the summer and is currently in post-production. Here's a little preview that gives you some of the flavor of the film.

Ah, nostalgia. I'm intrigued. To be honest, you had me at Erasure's "A Little Respect." For further information about Seoul Searching, head over to Tumblr and follow updates on the film's Facebook page.
