SXSW First Look: 'Ktown Cowboys,' a Hard-Partying Bromance (Trailer, Exclusive Poster)

Based on the debauchery-filled web series of the same name, “Ktown Cowboys” is a bro-mantic dramedy (is that a genre first?) about five hard-partying pals drifting toward adulthood in Koreatown’s after-hours soju bars and karaoke rooms in hopes of finding a better version of themselves. Check out the trailer below.

The SXSW-bound cast includes Shane Yoon, Peter Jae, Danny Cho, Sunn Wae, Bobby Choy, Ken Jeong of “The Hangover” and “Hawaii Five-O”‘s Daniel Dae Kim. The film is directed by Daniel (DPD) Park, the creative director of Transparent Agency, which works with Snoop Dogg, LMFAO, YG, Tyga, Sidney Samson, Frank Ocean, Macy Gray and more. It is produced by Brian Chung, Daniel Sollinger and Greg Bishop and written by Danny Cho of “MAD TV” and “Parks and Recreation.”
