A series of short films based on a friend's blog entitled "A Kyopo in the Motherland". It's the chronicles of a Korean American teaching English in Korea and dealing with the many cultural differences, other foreigners, etc. This material is comedy gold, and we were inspired to make short films based on several of the entries. The films will be submitted to various film festivals and will also be made into a web series. There's not much more to say other than read the damn blog!
