Yoon is best known for his blockbuster films “Haeundae” (2009) and “Ode to My Father” (2014), which both surpassed 10 million in ticket sales, the milestone of a commercial hit in Korean cinema. Obst is a renowned producer behind films “Sleepless in Seattle” (1993) and “Interstellar” (2014) and is known to have a particular interest in K-pop and Korean culture in general.
 
“Okay-pop: Lost in America” tells the story of a Korean boy band who heads to New York City for its U.S. debut but ends up stranded in a rural town in Texas with no Money or cell phones.
