Unexpectedly Moving

I picked this movie to watch because of the title of the movie. I knew 'gook' means something offensive to Asian people in English, but in Korean language, it's not an offensive word so it made me curious. This movie didn't grabbed my undivided attention in the beginning, but more and more into the story, I got so hooked. This movie made me laugh and cry both. I really enjoyed watching the film. Seeing the characters' connections to each other slowly being revealed as the riot got more heated in the story really built the drama. It was very rewarding film to watch. The acting in this film is crazy awesome. I'm so looking forward to see another film by the same artists again!! Please~~make more films!

Emotional and fun storytelling at a sad time W/O getting into the weeds

I really enjoyed the movie and feel like it captured a lot of the interactions I had witnessed and encountered growing up. It was interesting to see how no matter what parts of the world that you're in, some things never change. As an Asian American I was able to relate a lot to the movie but was also drawn into all of the characters and it was well written, acted and directed. Although the movie was set during difficult times of the aftermath of the Rodney King verdict, the movie didn't dwell into the details of it but rather provided the perspective from everyday people in LA around that time. Back in those days, gangs were a lot more prevalent in LA and of course it was more dangerous. In this movie, you get to see how different people perceive each other based on their race and history. Different cultures are intertwined and everyone is trying to survive to make a living whither it is legal or not. But what's most interesting is seeing how two family's history can connect people together and how conflict is not without its consequences. David So was funny and you feel sorry for him as he experiences a bad day throughout LA. But he has it easy in comparison to other characters you start to care for who go through more struggles when they shouldn't have to. The ending was very emotional and you feel for those characters. Justin Chon did an excellent job with everything since not only he wrote and directed but acted too. It's refreshing to see the Korean-American perspective and I'm looking forward to his next movie on Korean adoptees.

Another Movie on Racial Discrimination

Racial discrimination is a dark and sensitive topic. The movie is about the same faced by Korean origins living in states. A African American girl living in a shady neighborhood is emotionally attached to Korean friends and thinks of them as family. The girl's family are hostile against the Korean guys. The movie revolves around day today difficulties & racial abuse faced by them by different origin of Americans. The struggle of the Korean guys and black girl has been nicely portrayed. The ending of the movie is dark.
