Beastie Boys (Hangul: 비스티 보이즈; RR: Biseuti Boiseu) is a 2008 South Korean film about male hosts who serve female clients in discreet salons tucked into the affluent fashion districts of southern Seoul.
Its international English title The Moonlight of Seoul is taken from a 70s short novel by Kim Seung-wook, 서울의 달빛 0장 ("The Moonlight of Seoul – Part Zero"), which explores the aura of Seoul's nightlife.
In director Yoon Jong-bin's own words, the film "depicts youths living in the exotic, affluent backdrop of Gangnam and those kicking and screaming to survive in the superficial, capitalistic society."
