Trailer: Soju-Fueled Boys Will Be Boys In New Film 'Ktown Cowboys'
If you're one of the many fans of the short-lived webseries K-Town (R.I.P.) and have been dying for some more soju-fueled, L.A.-set stories of not-so-youthful indiscretion, then let this trailer for the film Ktown Cowboys tide you over until the film hits theaters. According to Deadline, the film will have its world premiere at SXSW next month.
"This is Los Angeles. Koreatown, L.A. to be exact. 'Ktown' for short," announces the voiceover. Ktown Cowboys goes back at least five years, beginning as a webseries about K-Town boys party way too hard. Eight episodes and a Kickstarter campaign later, the boys are now in a feature film and dealing with Adult Issues like work, identity, filial piety, and learning to control your rage. "Basically, this is a fucked-up coming of age story." Don't worry it's not all heavy—by the looks of it there's still plenty of scenes set in KTown nightclubs with gallons of flowing soju.
Ktown Cowboys stars the original cast along with bigger names like Daniel Dae Kim and Eric Roberts. We suppose Roberts isn't that big of a coup since, if you look at his IMDB page, he seems to make an appearance in literally anything from the last two years. Ken Jeong is also attached as executive producer.
The first episode of the original webseries won director Daniel Park and writer Danny Cho an award at the 2010 LA Asian Pacific Film Festival. You can watch the entire series on YouTube.
