This line describes everything you need to recreate this movie in the head. Many genre films do not do anything special in terms of their plot. If the content is good, much can be forgiven. However, the plot of "Daddy You, Daughter Me" goes farther with all the dramatic charge of Korean films, Hyeong-Hyeop Kim hit it right when he chose to add a familiar everyday theme proposition, gave more life to comedy with a Harmonic touch of drama and reflection.
Since this movie is a comedy, these moments are usually comical in nature. In other words, "Daddy You, Daughter Me" has to be very funny to make up for its deficiencies in other areas. This is where "Daddy You, Daughter Me" really fails. The comedy is not evenly distributed with the weight placed in the parent section. The laughter is few and far between. The movie is not really funny. In many ways, the film is better in its dramatic sections than in its comedy section.
The challenge for the creators and actors of a body-changing movie is the fact that each actor has to play two different characters; More exactly the same two characters believably. Not only do actors need to develop two characters to play, but they also have to mimic the performance of the other actor at the same time. Also, each actor has to spend a lot of their screen time playing characters that do not suit their usually acting profile. It is not common for a male actor to play a female character and vice versa. It's a complicated and difficult task for any actor and actress.
The main cast has to deal with differences in age, gender and family social roles. Veteran actor Jung So-Min has to play a normal middle-aged man and a teenage girl in a middle-aged man's body. Actress Yoon Je-Moon has to play both a teenage girl and a middle-aged man in a teenage girl's body. It's a complex web of performance requirements and a burden on the cast.
It is obvious that the point for "Daddy You, Daughter Me" is "Family". Most movies of this genre are about "family." With this Korean body-changing movie, this is intended to be manifested in this film through the sub-arguments joining in the end because of how the film is structured; In other words, it creates several subplots of the sections of both characters that, as a group, leads to a "family" message. In theory, this could work.
Overall it's a medium movie I would even say tendentious because things end up like they did at the end of the movie.
Great laughs and the acting is so on point. I tried to imagine the guy acting as a girl and knew its confirm a tall order for the dad actor.
Daughter pretty af and her acting isn't too shabby for this mix gender role.
