A self-centered star actress' bizarre plan to become a single mother. Go Ju Yeon is a self-centered diva who always gets what she wants: fame, money, and even good-looking young boyfriends. But now that she’s in her 40s and going downhill in her acting career, she wonders whether she should settle down with her secret boyfriend who is 12 years younger than her; although the rookie actor is only interested in taking advantage of her fame, cheating behind her back. Discovering this, she realizes that she needs someone definite in her life: her own baby. Devastatingly, she learns that she has reached menopause already. But then when she comes across a pregnant teenager Dan Ji at the hospital, she makes an offer that Dan Ji cannot refuse. Soon after, Ju Yeon makes a press announcement of her pregnancy to avenge her ex-boyfriend who is now a rising star. It becomes a major scandal but she declares that she’ll be a proud single mom and it makes her more popular than ever. Dazzled by the new phase in her career, Ju Yeon begins to neglect Dan Ji, but worse, people are now suspicious. (Source: KoBiz) Edit Translation

A charming movie that has a ton of messages ranging from teenage pregancy, expectations of older actors/actresses, image, family. It had a great sense of humour about certain situations but was able to ramp up the drama for the more serious aspcts of the film really well. All thanks to the incredible range of Kim Hye Soo as the lead role. I love the risk they took using Kim Hyun Soo, a young actress for the role. You tend to see older, more experienced people in the roles but they went young and it paid off, making the story even more grander. She was excellent. Only 16 at the time and she pulled of the emotion and weight of the situation supremely well. And Ma Dong Seok is a G. Godbless that man.

A well crafted comedy/drama that you can watch with the family or alone.

A feel good, fight back, feel mad kind of movie

This movie is kind of sweet and pretty interesting showing very clearly the prejudice against both teen pregnancies and woman as a whole while pointing out and society's lack of safety nets in an a tad absurd and to far way...

What I loved about the movie was the dialog and the women sticking up for each other. I also loved the teen, she was probably smarter and waaaay cooler than all the adults in this drama but without loosing her status as a teen. I also loved how they over and over pointed out the absurdity in putting all the responsibility and blame on the teen mom when she clearly did not get pregnant on her own.

The grown up lead is not very nice, and that is okay too, she does have some growth but not to much growth and is most certainly less mature than the teen she has taken under her wing, giving the viewers a chance to hate her as wall as feel for her at times.

Other grown ups in charge of this teen and moms in general in this movie bring out my less pacifictic side, so do most of the men with one pretty awesome exception giving hope to all men out there, yes you can do it , you can be responsible lovable human being if you try.

All in all not really a masterpiece but definitely worth watching.
