A rare Hollywood movie telling the story of Asian and Asian-American characters, the film was hailed as a watershed moment for diversity and was an overwhelming success at the U. Even with Asian characters at the center of the story, the movie has not been a success in Asia. Korean American singer and actor Eric Nam, along with his brothers Eddie and Brian, even bought out an entire screening of the movie at a theater in Songpa District, southern Seoul, and encouraged local audiences to attend, after they did the same thing at a theater in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia in August. Despite such efforts, the movie performed poorly in Korea.
From big band glamour to contemporary pop romance, the film's soundtrack tells a story in itself. The wedding reception scene — like most of the film — is enriched by the carefully curated soundtrack. Photo courtesy of Warner Bros.
