Storyline

On a space station in the not-too-distant future, two guests arrive early for a wedding, and the older tells the younger a story about the groom's father, who had been a well-known entertainer, and his selfish wife. The story, which starts in Seoul in 2002, is a bizarre love triangle of a comedian who never smiles, a Taekwondo instructor, and a whining woman who wants to be a TV star but who'll do anything to avoid being poor. Before the story ends with the wedding, there are jail sentences, a fatherless baby who needs a bone marrow transplant, a blind and forgiving masseuse, an abused melon, and lovers caught in flagrante delicto.

This one went straight to the top on my list of horrible korean comedy experience. I just can't find enough words for this crap. The top 3 Korean movies to not waste time nor money on are as following. 1, Taekwon girl 2, Jailbreaker 3, Married to the mafia

I'm normally a big fan of Korean film, even biased sometimes, but there are no loopholes for these movies. Especially this Taekwon girl which without a doubt is the worst Asian film I've ever seen. On behalf of Korean filmmaking, I'm truly ashamed.
