Seoul Mates

Here is the synopsis of Seoul Mates:

Alice, a Filipino transwoman, decided to go after her boyfriend Jason in Korea. She never heard much from Jason since the guy went there to study. Alice planned a surprised visit only to find Jason living with his new girlfriend Suyong, a Korean woman whom Jason met and fell in love with. Devastated and depressed, Alice planned to kill herself by jumping off in the bridge where she would meet Joon.

Joon, a Korean musician was on the same bridge and attempting to kill his self. A free loader at home, his parents kept pressuring him to find a more decent job than music and a potential girlfriend to settle with. But what really pushed Joon to end his life was the news of his one, true love getting engaged to someone else. Heartbroken and wasted, he went off to the bridge but he never expected that a woman of different race would mess up with his plan of suicide.

Two broken hearts crossed their paths and started picking up their fallen pieces together. But the attempt to get whole again was disturbed by the realizations that the important missing piece of themselves was left there from their past. Instead of getting into a new relationship, they decided to become allies in this wicked attempt to get back their true loves. Their lives made a quick turn and it brought them to events that they never expected…

“Seoul Mates” stars Mimi Juareza (Cinemalaya 2013 Best Actor) and Jisoo Kim under the direction of Nash Ang.
