JUNHO

준호

When a rising young Korean stage actor, Junho, finds himself embroiled in a terrible scandal, he flees his conservative community of Seoul; leaving his past behind, with hopes of a fresh start. When Junho arrives in San Francisco, we see his almost comedic struggle to communicate among language barriers and cultural differences. We also witness his internal struggle with the deep guilt he feels surrounding a situation from the past in which his inaction left a woman in serious need helpless. A woman who happened to be his best friend, Jin.

JUNHO is inspired by actual events related to the #MeToo movement within a South Korean theater circle. Instead of focusing on the moment of abuse, the film depicts the journey of a bystander’s life before and after the incident as the portrait of youth and transgression. David Seok Hoon Boo, in his directorial feature debut, intertwines themes of sexual abuse, male culpability, immigration and identity.
