The first U.S.-Korea independent co-production, Wedding Palace is a family comedy. Shot on location in Los Angeles, CA and Seoul, Korea, the film is in English and features elements of animation. Billed as the Korean-American My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the story centers on an international online romance fueled by imagination and 24/7 video chats.
Pressured to get married by family and friends, 29-year-old advertising executive Jason Kim finds the woman of his dreams in cyberspace, 9000 miles away in Seoul, Korea. But when Na Young arrives in Los Angeles, Jason soon discovers that a relationship can sometimes be deeper online than in real life. Can Jason find the courage to defy his parents and bridge the gap between family expectations of beauty and true love? With all of her "shortcomings," is Na Young the special girl with the power to break his family's ancient curse forever?
Starring are Brian Tee (Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift) and S. Korean award-winning actress Kang Hye-Jung (Old Boy), making her American debut. Bobby Lee, Stephen Park, Joy Osmanski, and Margaret Cho enliven the comedic supporting cast.
