About the film
High grossing comedies such as "Sunny - 2010" and "Miracle in Cell No.7" have a few things in common: funny and unique characters, a well-structured story that will make you laugh and cry, and the castís amazing performance. "Miss Granny" has all these essential elements that appeal to everyone regardless of age; with an extraordinary plot that depicts the adventure of a 74 year old stuck in a 20 year old body, "Miss Granny" is selected as one of the most anticipated upcoming Korean movie in January 2014. From teenagers to seniors, "Miss Granny" is a movie that all family members can enjoy together.
Director Hwang Dong-hyeok said that he was strongly attracted to the story not only because of its well- structured storyline, but also because of its potential to appeal to all different age groups. After his success with his second feature length film "The Crucible", he wanted to challenge himself by directing a comedy feature length film. Rising actress Sim Eun-kyeong (from "Sunny - 2010" and "Masquerade") plays the younger version of 74 year old widow OH Mal-Soon (changes her name to OH Doo-Ri).
