Review

This was a really cute film which was very funny, I enjoyed it very much. It was somewhat similar to other costume comedy films from Korea but I never get bored of them.

As I said above, I knew it starred Lee Chae Young, and was curious to see her in another role apart from a soap opera format. Unfortunately, her skills weren’t utilized as much as the they could but she was good in it.

The story was well put together, I was mostly kept engaged all the way through although it was slow in parts. It was slightly saucy as well, in a flirty kind of way.

Cha Tae Hyun was so good in this lead role, cheeky looking and was the centerpiece of the movie. All the actors had their own story lines with important parts to play.

The two children in the movie was exceptional, very funny and great actors.

My only negative was how they kept repeating “okay”, it was moderately humorous the first time but after that it was slightly annoying. You will know what I mean when you watch the film.

Overall I would give this movie a 4.5/5.

Where To Watch

The movie can be found, at least in Canada, on Tubi and Viki.
