Mid 30's Hyeon-su Nam (Cha Tae-Hyun) is a popular radio d.j. and entertainer (who was even more popular in his younger days as a teen idol).
One day his apartment doorbell rings and a young lady named Jeong-nam Hwang (Bo-yeong Park) appears and tells Hyeon-su that he is her father. Furthermore, she informs him that he is now a grandfather to her young son, Ki-dong. Hyeon-su would like nothing better than just read moreclose the door, but when Jeong-nam threatens to go to the media he allows the young lady and her son to stay in his apartment. Complications arise when they are spotted outside together and people assume they are romantically involved!

This movie is about a thirty something radio host who finds out he has a 22 year old daughter who has a young son. To avoid a scandal he keeps his new found daughter and grandson a secret. Things become complicated when he is spotted with his daughter who is believed to be his much younger girlfriend.

I absolutely fell in love with this movie. It is both funny and serious. This read more movie gave me an overall feeling of joy after watching it. The story was original and the music was great. This a great movie to watch and re-watch.

It's one thing for a single man to find out he has a daughter but to find out he is a grandfather too? Makes for a very, very cute movie. I must say, as usual Cha Tae Hyun does not disappoint in his movies. Playing Hyun Soo and watching his character evolve was precious and Park Bo Young? What a joy! This is my first time seeing her and I'll tell you read more what, if that was her singing, someone needs to give her a singing contract. I don't know if she was but whoever it was had a wonderful voice. And let's not forget little Wang Seok Hyeon as Ki Dong. So cute and so precious. Who wouldn't fall in love with him! If you want to watch a movie that at the end puts a smile on your face, this is it!!

Both deal with young parenthood and how their relatives get involved. The difference is that Baby & I is about the teenager himself and Speedy Scandal is about the teenage mother's estranged father.. kinda. Anyway, both are very funny.
