Mind Your Language crowdfunding campaign coming to an end, be part of the adventure!
As the world is becoming more and more narrow-minded – scared of globalisation -, here is a project that celebrates the multicultural multi-ethnic diversity of the UK, bringing together fans of Korean culture. The London Korean Drama Club invites you to support them!
Mind Your Language is 10 x 30 minute-Korean inspired British web drama that follows five students and their Korean language teacher. As the students learn Korean, the teacher learns from his students as he experiences a multicultural society for the first time.
Produced by Manchester-based online startup K-ONLINE TELEVISION, Mind Your Language is bold, heartfelt and innovative, dealing with a range of issues such as arranged marriage, race, identity conflict and family.
It will also blend the conventions of Korean Dramas, cleverly navigating between light moments and emotional scenes, exploring love and relationships between many of the characters. The drama explores the reasons behind the students’ passion for Korean culture, as well as battling with the cultures they were born into. They lean on each other for support, as their friends and families struggle to understand them.
The range of ethnic backgrounds represented in the drama highlights the diversity of non-Korean fans in the U.K. However, despite their differences in culture and upbringing, their common connection is their passion and celebration of Korean culture.
The character of Kim (Korean Language Teacher) and his Korean language class are going to anchor the drama. K-ONLINE TV have cast and crew ready, and a structured plan to move forward. They expect to begin shooting of the pilot episode once all funding is raised.
Any money raised beyond the target will help to produce further episodes, and invest more in the production of the pilot.
K-ONLINE TV already produced an exciting trailer, that makes us want to see more:
