Shout out to Netflix for looking out for me and showing me all these great movies!

I had seen the trailer for this movie on tv and kept telling myself to watch this but never got around to it and I'm mad at myself that it took me as long as it did. This is a feel good movie that you can't help but love. But be warned, if you're looking for read more romance more than anything else, this isn't that type of movie. Don't pass it up though! It's great either way!

Plot | An older woman is given the chance to go back to her younger years and live the life she always wanted. She has the chance to finally go out and do something for herself instead of always having to think about her family first. Of course not realistic and it's nothing new but to me I found it more interesting because the older woman grew up pre Korean War and times were much, much different compared to if this was an U.S citizen (I hope that makes sense to people, might when you watch the movie~)

Cast | Shim Eun Kyung is hilarious! Hands down. I knew after I watched her in Sunny that she was going to be perfect for these types of roles. She's still pretty young but got the whole ajumma talk/walk down perfectly. I also loved how well her and Lee Jin Wook meshed. Finding out their age difference in real life had me a little shocked but I loved their chemistry and you didn't really see age as a factor here. Loved all the other side characters too. (Jinyoung and that face paint was just…)

Music | GREAT. No words can describe it. Raindrop and White Butterfly are amazing OSTs and Eun Kyung's voice is perfect for them both.

Rewatch | I'm not too sure at the moment. It was a fun movie but the romance it does lacks is what I usually crave in movies/dramas. I get it, some things just couldn't happen because of the whole plot. I 100% accepted that. I just love me some romance. Maybe in a few years I'll come back.

Overall | It was a great movie to watch. Pretty simple. Yes it had a lot of comedy but it had some serious moments that put a lot of things into perspective, which I liked. Not to mention the ending was seriously too perfect. If you have netflix or just need a random movie to watch, this is a must watch!

The first time I saw the movie trailer for this on MNET, I knew I had to watch it. So when I saw it on gooddrama today, I didn't hesitate to start. I am glad that the subs for the movie were accurate too. I saw a movie one time where the subs were just plain wrong. Anyways, on to the review.

The plot - a granny who gets a second chance read more to be young again and do stuff she wasn't able to do. Because life happened, she had to make sacrifices for her family. When she turned into a young woman again, she embarks on a journey to follow the dream she gave up. It's a comedy with a bit of romance and whimsy. But there's also scenes that will touch your heart.

The actors - I love granny, played by Na Moon Hee. I've seen her in My Name is Kim Sam Soon and Unstoppable High Kick. She is really funny. Shim Eun Kyung who plays granny's younger version was really good in her role. I've only seen her in the movie Sunny, she was pretty good too. Jung Jin Young who plays the grandson was pretty good too. I love his character.

The music - I love it. The songs were great and Shim Eun Kyung has a really nice voice.

Re-watch value - Definitely! It's one of those movies that will warm your heart and make you feel good.

Overall - I recommend this movie.

    That ending though ^^
    I really disliked her at the start. But when she remembered her past in that song, I was a river.

    I seldom or you can say I never laugh out loud for a movie. However, this movie's story and the female lead acting were just so good and hilarious that made my roommate thought I was drunk in the middle of night. Savage.

    Brilliant. A very easy to watch yet meaningful movie. Great lead actress (Shim Eun Kyeong), who did an amazing job at portraying the language and acts of an older lady. This movie leaves you feeling happy and relaxed. 9/10

    The first and second song she sang were really heartfelt! The way she treats them like a granny made me cringe and laugh; I could feel the awkwardness.
