Drama "Meet Mr. Daddy" ("Shiny Day") won the Young Audiences Award at the 2007 Rome Film Festival. Director Park Kwang-soo's drama revolves around a selfish man played by Park Shin-yang who finds out that he has a young daughter. Because it's financially beneficial, he decides to keep her. Later he finds out that the girl suffers from a serious disease.

Park Kwang-soo is a veteran writer/director whose credentials includes "Chilsoo and Mansu" (1988), featuring Park Joong-hoon and Ahn Sung-ki. He is also the director of the Asian Film Market (AFM) of the Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF).
