About this show

American Hwangap is Lloyd Suh's comedy, set in a West Texas suburb where a Korean American family prepares for the return of the husband and father who left them 15 years earlier to go back to his native Korea. Having chosen to return to the U.S. to celebrate his "hwangap" -- the Korean expression for the traditional, much-revered milestone of one's 60th birthday -- patriarch Min Suk Chun sets off all manner of comic and heart-wrenching speculation and suspicion amongst his wife and grown children about the real reason for his homecoming. That one of them should end up sitting naked in a tree before the "hwangap" is concluded is just part of what makes this family reunion so memorable and unique.
