The most anticipated romantic comedy of the year Always Be My Maybe has finally released a teaser. Well, most anticipated rom-com for Asian Americans everywhere. The film is set to release on May 31 on Netflix and stars comedian Ali Wong (Baby Cobra) and Randall Park (Fresh Off the Boat).
Wong and Park play childhood friends Sasha and Marcus who have a falling out and haven’t spoken to each other for 15 years. Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant and runs into her old pal, Marcus who is now a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks — and maybe some new ones — are there.
In the teaser, we see Marcus struggling to confess his feelings for Sasha through direct messaging. When they do meet up, Sasha reveals her new freaky, sexual relationship with her new man.
The film is directed by Fresh Off the Boat showrunner Nahnatchka Khan and written by Wong, Park, and Michael Golamco. The cast also includes Daniel Dae Kim, Keanu Reeves, Michelle Buteau, Vivian Bang, Karan Soni, Charlyne Yi, James Saito, Lyrics Born, and Susan Park.
