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 was a really cute and emotional movie about a middle-aged man suddenly becoming a father and grandfather.

The characters were lovable and cute, the acting was good overall. I was especially moved by little Ki Dong.

The movie had some really cheesy scenes I found a little overdone, but except of that the humor was really good.

It also had sad scenes, though and those were acted fantastically.

I recommend this read more to everyone who wants to see a light, heartwarming and cute movie once in a while. ;)

What would you feel like if you're a single man living a wealthy bacelor's life, having a great reputation along with a famous name but one day a 22 years old girl shows up at your door telling you she's your daughter and bringing her child along? well, if you want the answer you need to watch this film :p
This film deals with family relationships, how they resolve their problems and read more their misfortune, how to hide their abnormals from the media and outsiders but most of all, it was about how to protect each other in front of many obstacles while following their dreams.
A three generations relationship with the most unusual story is what made me watch this and unexpectedly liking it.
You may want to give it a try as well.

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.

    In this movie, Park Bo Young really does have the same nose and eyes as Cha Tae Hyun. I'm actually surprised at the their resemblance, they really do look like father and daughter. :)

    I seriously loved this movie! No wonder it's a hit. I loved it so much that I ended up watching it twice. First time by myself and second time with my family ❤ I don't know why I put this off for so long, very glad I watched this. Completely worth my time 10/10

    One of the first korean movies I watched when I was young. Just rewatched it recently and it still feels good. I want to keep that child actor in my pocket; he's just simply too adorable!
