Star next door is okay for a movie with comedy parts, but I wouldn't call it a comedy. The mother daughter dynamics were more like older younger sister dynamics, as the celebrity didn't act as a mother. Rather she was immature and kind of irrational at first. Things got better towards the end, though they didn't give us a full explanation on why everything happened back then. Also, at first, it was hard to understand that the celebrity in question was the girl's mother and not her sister or something. But, overall, it was enjoyable.

The Star Next Door is a fun movie with plenty of nonsense to keep you watching. Its story and characters are straightforward and by the end of the movie, you feel as though they've learned their lessons.

The focus of this movie is very much on the mother (Han Chae Young) and her journey to taking responsibility for her daughter. This was the first time I saw Han Chae Young act and she was fine - the script didn't really require much from her. Jin Ji Hee's character, on the other hand, could've been better. Most of the time her problems felt superficial, I believe this was because the movie told rather than showed Ji Hee's character's issues with her mother. Not to mention she never sympathized with her mother. As for the support characters...they were fine. I was surprised to find Seulong here and in such a role but he was by far the most likable character in this movie.

Overall this movie is fun and simple but I won't be rewatching any time soon. I liked the story they were trying to tell but it was clear that it followed an established format and didn't bother to do anything new or interesting with its talented cast.
