[HanCinema's Film Review] Papa 2012/07/01, Film: "Papa - Movie"
Director:Han Ji-seung ("Venus and Mars" and "Alone in Love")
Stars: Park Yong-woo, Ko Ah-ra and Son Byeong-hoReview Score: 6/10
Also try: "Hello Ghost"
I flagged this film as soon as I saw the film poster for it a few weeks before its release in Korea.

But the soap "My Princess", currently on MBC, seems to have changed all that, and viewers have taken to Kim's adorable but comic character in a big way. They seem to enjoy seeing the inelegant side of someone who seems to have it all. And criticism of her acting skills seems on the wane,...More
