Being set in the 80s and having a crew of misfits from all different walks of life is a pretty good blueprint for what made John Hughes movies so iconic.
Writer/director Benson Lee took said blueprint and applied it to the story of Korean teenagers from all around the world spending a summer in Korea to learn more about the motherland (not unlike Birthright for Jewish people).
Thus, Seoul Searching was made.
The trailer looks pretty promising and definitely lives up to the John Hughes tribute label.
Look for it in LA theaters starting June 24th.
