Jason’s (Brian Tee) life seems to be complete, except for one minor problem: a family curse dooms him if he is not married by the age of thirty and his fiancee has just left him at the altar with only a little time to spare to find a replacement bride. Despite his family’s best efforts, Jason resists settling down with a new match and appears to be resigned to his fate. However, this all changes when he takes a business trip to Korea and meets his ideal mate in Na Young (Kang Hye-jung) and woos her through a series of video chats and fantasies. But, when things finally start looking up for Jason, will his family inadvertently drive Na Young away?
‘The Wedding Palace’ opens on Friday, September 27th in New York and Los Angeles. New York viewers can find the film at AMC Empire 25 in Times Square. Those on the west coast have a number of choices: the CGV Theater in Koreatown, Laemmle’s Playhouse 7 in Pasadena, and Edward’s University Town Center 6 in Irvine. Showings will expand to other major cities, such as Chicago and Washington DC, in October.
‘Wedding Palace’ also has another claim to fame, as it is the first independent Korean-American romantic comedy released in American theaters. It was produced through the joint efforts of the Los Angeles Koreatown business community, the Korean government, as well as several Korea-based corporations. In addition to Brian Tee and Kang Hye-jung, ‘Wedding Palace’ also stars Bobby Lee and Margaret Cho. More information can be found at www.weddingpalacemovie.com
