In the countryside, at a Catholic Church, luxurious cars come rolling in. A wedding is set to take place between Ji Hong and Yu Ri. The couple met as music club members at their university. Their friends from their university days are all arriving, most of whom they haven't seen in 10 years.

All of these friends are in the middle thirties. During the wedding, the friends notice that one person from their music club, Jeong Hee, is missing from the wedding. After the wedding, all the friends gather together at the vacation home operated by Ji Hong and Yu Ri. During the evening a young girl named Mi Rae appears at the vacation home. She informs the group that Yeong Hee was her mother and she died in a car accident one month ago. Furthermore, she tells everyone that she came here to meet her father. Tension, shock, and surprise then overtake the gathered friends as they recall their relationships with Yeong Hee.

To be quite honest I watched this movie for two reasons. Firstly it was supposed to be the "Korean version of Mama Mia”! Secondly Shin Seong Woo is in it. Please and thank you.

Well Shin Seong Woo was a treat to watch. It was actually time I had ever seen him act. It was a treat.

Sadly I thought the script felt off. It takes the wild and energetic feel of the original story and tones it down. I think they were going for a sweet, dreamy, and contemplative feel. Which at times made the humor feel off. Especially when talking about the woman's escapades with men as her daughter comes to find out who her father is after her mother's death.

Yeah, different tone. At times I felt myself more bored than engaged in the story. The music wasn't quite what I had expected and visually it was just average. I felt like the writers weren't sure what kind of twist they wanted to put on their remake. For me, it was a miss. Though I feel like others might like the quality of it. It was interesting seeing a Korean remake this time around, so I'll give it that. (I've seen a lot of American remakes on Korean/foreign movies lately.)

The story a blast form the past. Korean version of mamma mia. It was kinda cute but the setting doesnt do much to help. Its raining and cold and the set just feel cold. I think if there was some sunshine it woulda been more livelier. The actors did a good job, it just felt dull.
