We're looking for foreigners & multicultural families who are living in Korea and have their own unique stories.

Any foreigners living in Korea may experience several problems, such as language barrier, cultural differences, and so on. We intend to film how foreigners deal with these difficulties and the process of adapting themselves to the new environment.
