The atmospheric SPA NIGHT is a portrait of forbidden sexual awakening set in the nocturnal world of spas and karaoke bars in Los Angeles’ Koreatown. David Cho (Joe Seo in a breakthrough performance), a timid 18-year-old living with his financially-struggling immigrant parents, chances upon a secret cruising spot when he takes a job at an all-male spa. There he begins to realize hidden desires that threaten his life as a dutiful son and student.

  1. I enjoyed this movie! I loved how it highlighted the real struggles of being a Korean American family, and the struggle of not having a safe space to express who you really are. Incredible movie! So real

  2. What a waste of 1 hour and 36.45 minutes. Snails move faster than the
    pace of this movie, and the end was a HUGE let down. Netflix described
    this movie as "After closeted Korean-American teen takes a job in a
    local spa, he thinks about his own sexuality, choices, and how to tell
    his traditional parents." Not only does he NOT consider, at any time
    during the movie how to tell his parents, but he DOESN'T EVEN TELL THEM
    AT ALL. THAT WAS WHAT I WAS WAITING FOR! The movie was rated 2.5 out of
    5 stars before I decided to see it. I should have known better. What a
    complete waste of time!
