LA locals, Director Daniel “DPD” Park and Writer Danny Cho, take a trip to SXSW 2015 for the World Premier of Ktown Cowboys!
I was fortunate enough to catch the local premier at CGV Cinemas in Koreatown. The audience was jam-packed with Koreatown regulars and well received for its comedic coming-of-age storyline with an authentic point-of-view.
According to Writer Brian Chung, KTOWN COWBOYS is a bro-mantic dramedy that follows a group of ball-busting, hard-partying friends wrestling with their evolution into adulthood.
As their individual struggles come to light, the group of friends band together in Koreatown and through late nights at seedy after-hour soju bars, karaoke drinking girls and even a stint in jail, each emerges as a better version of himself.

I give Ktown Cowboys credit for finding a different way to make us fall in love with a whole new culture of bros (and also for not titling itself Ktown Kowboys, shying away from an obvious alliteration). If Entourage is American BBQ, then Ktown Cowboys is Korean BBQ – a totally different flavor that can coexist with similar practices using completely different ingredients. Don’t get me wrong, Park’s film is much tamer than any of Vincent Chase’s TV-MA exploits, and the heartwarming connections don’t always stick, but there’s nothing wrong with what Ktown Cowboys represents.
