Formerly known as "Suspicious Girl" on HanCinema
Oh Mal-Soon (Nah Moon-hee) is a 74-year-old widow that realizes she is becoming a burden on her family. As she is roaming the streets, she comes across a photo studio and decides to dress up for a self- portrait. When she walks out of the photo studio, she mysteriously turns back into her twenty year old self. Making the most out of this one in a lifetime opportunity, she changes her name to Oh Doo-Ri (Sim Eun-kyeong) and decides to make the most out of her youth.
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).

  • [HanCinema's Feature] Korea's Top Five Favorite Films of 2014

    2015 is nigh upon us, a fresh year with its own host of hits waiting to entertain and be enjoyed. There is still a little time before 2014 passes us by, and before it does I wanted to glance back and take stock of this year's most successful spectacles and see what rose to top in terms of ticket tallies. Last year Korean cinephiles were treated to an array of awesome attractions ("The Face Reader", "Snowpiercer", "The Attorney", "Miracle in Cell No.7"), but still Bong Joon-ho's 2003 hit "The Host" remained the nation's cash king with over 13M admissions. It would take something supremely special (historic) to rally such record-breaking support and slay this iconic stub-guzzler,...More

  • Choi Min-sik, Yoo Hae-jin, Park Yoo-chun in Chungmuro

    2014/12/08, Source,
    Chungmuro was a male party. From successful movies to rookies, the event focused on actors who contributed to the film industry throughout the year. The best movies were awarded and rookies were introduced. It was disappointing that actresses didn't have much space to stand in. # Acting God: Choi Min-sik It's not an overstatement to say that it was Choi Min-sik's year with his greatest hit being "The Admiral: Roaring Currents". He took on the role of Admiral Yi Sun-shin and 17.6 million people have watched it. The movie re-wrote Korean movie history. This syndrome brought about historical movies once more and there was even debate about the social role of these kinds of generation movies. Choi Min-sik has a record breaking movie on his hands,...More
