During the 1980's, the Korean government created a special summer camp for "gyopo" or foreign born teenagers where they could spend their summer in Seoul to learn about their motherland. While the intentions of the program were honorable, the activities of the teens were not. The program was eventually canceled after a few years because the government simply could not control the youth. ~~ Based on a true story about one of the summer camps that took place in 1986.

The movie is based on a true story which intrigued me, it was original and had me laughing most of the way through it. the students who were from all across the world such as America, Mexico, Germany, England and other countries  came together to discover their family’s culture in South Korea in the mid 1980’s in a kind of school camp.
The Story was good but I did think that it was ever so slightly lacking something, The story really consisted of the build up of relationships with the characters but the way some of the characters were portrayed in the story I couldn’t really grow to like some of them.
Some of the actors/ cast I didn’t really like the characters they played I didn’t really like Grace in all honesty, but I feel like the actress did really well in portraying her, I also didn’t like the other female lead, Kris I feel as if the actress didn’t really fit the part for it (in my opinion), some of the minor characters acting was a bit iffy but despite that I felt that the other actors and actresses really fit the part.
The music had all the greatest hits in the 80’s which I absolutely loved
Overall 7.5

The movie was very bad for me .  The idea of it  was very good but the execution was horrible. I wanted more of them getting to know Korea and Korean traditions and more of their interactions with their teachers, but all we got was them being idiot rebellious teenagers with each other. I mean why bother send the kids alll the way to korea for calligraphy lessons and "what do u think being Korean means?"  #FAIL

The acting and characters were also very very bad.

The entire movie, there were only two scenes I actually  liked.

The OST was  also very loud and annoying.

Props for Cha In Pyo , though, for his fluent English. His character was one of the few I liked or cared about.
