Minari, from writer-director Lee Isaac Chung, follows a Korean family chasing the American Dream in 1980s rural Arkansas. Steven Yeung (The Walking Dead, Burning) leads the cast and produces the A24 production.

A24 is financing the film and producing alongside Chung, Plan B and Yeun. The drama, which is set to begin production on Monday, is inspired by Chung's upbringing as the son of Korean immigrants in rural Arkansas. Yeun, who was born in Seoul and moved to Michigan with his parents at age five, will star as a father who uproots his family from Korea to chase the American Dream on a plot of farmland in 1980s Arkansas (whose official state nickname at the time, incidentally, was "Land of Opportunity"). Korean actresses Yeri Han (A Quiet Dream) and Youn Yuh-Jung (The Bacchus Lady) will make their U.S. feature debuts in Minari, which also includes Will Patton and Scott Haze among the cast.

I always wanted John Cho (underrated actor in my opinion) to work with Nolan somehow, but i'd be totally down if Nolan and Yeun could work together some day. Who knows :)

If this film really slaps, and Yeun hits it out of the park: I can see an Oscar nomination coming up lol and you know what that means
