about a hip, thoroughly assimilated Korean-American girl and her very traditional
21-year-old Margaret and her mother, Katherine, fought constantly, mostly over dates; Mom wanted her to become the deferential wife of some
nice Korean boy, while Margaret favored Caucasians in leather biker garb.
Stuart was Margaret's goody-two-shoes older brother, engaged and studying
to become a cardiologist while deferentially spending most of his time at his parents'
home. Eric, the younger brother, looked up to his sister, much to Mom's
chagrin. Dad (Benny) just ducked for cover as the women lobbed one-liners at
scene alternated between the Kims' nice white town house, their family business
("Kim's Books"), and the department store where Margaret worked at a cosmetics counter, all
presumably in San Francisco. Ruthie and Gloria were Margaret's co-workers who
egged Margaret on. Another unexpected ally was
Grandma, a stereotype-buster in her younger days,
who was now either senile or very wise.
