Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Kang's Na Young and Tee's Jason have a winning rapport when the script isn't pushing them into contrived shtick."
‑ Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
"Yoo finds room for all of the obligatory bad first dates and fantasy sequences, montages and misunderstandings, a wisecracking best friend and overbearing parents. It doesn't appear that she means any of this ironically, or as parody."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"Writer-director Christina Yoo has fashioned a film that can only be described as somewhat bizarre in its mash-up of American and Korean rom-com tropes."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The cross-cultural rom com about a Korean American's search for true love is marred by serious overacting, broad characterization, flat comedic skits. It tries too hard, like a comic who's the one laughing hardest at his jokes."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"While the story is a bit weak, the film does a good job of contrasting Korean-Americans who steadfastly adhere to the traditions of their homeland with South Koreans who have renounced old customs."
‑ Nicole Herrington, New York Times
"A fresh and very funny look at the romantic comedy through the Korean-American lens."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, It's Just Movies
"Loud, frenetic action drowns out the charms of Christine Yoo's debut film."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"The genre elements of the romantic comedy "Wedding Palace" attempt a transpacific transit, but get lost in translation."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
