Hello DramaSpot readers!
This week I am recommending the Romantic Comedy: Miss Granny.
Starring Shim Eun Kyung, Na Moon Hee, Park In Hwan, Sung Dong Il, and Lee Jin Wook.
Written by Shin Dong Ik, Hong Yun Jeong, and Dong Hee Seon, this movie was released in 2014.
Watch it on KissAsian.
Oh Mal Soon (Na Moon Hee) is a 74-year-old widowed grandmother who is living with her son and his wife. Mal Soon is proud of her son, Hyun Chul, whom she raised on her own, but butts heads with his wife, Ae Ja. When Hyun Chul tells Mal Soon that she can no longer live in the house with Ae Ja, he tells Mal Soon that he is sending her to a nursing home.
As Mal Soon wanders around after being told she has to move to a nursing home, she discovers a photo studio that claims to take an image of the most youthful time in one’s life. Entering the studio to get her own picture taken for her ‘future funeral’, she leaves the studio with the face of a young 20-year-old!
Now a young faced Oh Mal Soon goes about living as a young girl again and takes on a new name, Oh Doo Ri (Shim Eun Kyung), inspired by her favorite actress, Audrey Hepburn. Seen as a 20 year old girl Doo Ri finds new love and starts to live more boldly than before.
Miss Granny is a heart-warming film that makes you laugh and want to show it to everyone you know. Shim Eun Kyung is hilarious and portrays a young woman with an old spirit so well and makes you want to root for her as the film presents challenges to her. I recommend this to anyone that wants to watch a feel good movie that has both comedic scenes as well as some emotional ones.
