My How you have grown!
After learning that his "grandfather," actually an old friend of the family, is dieing, Sangmin hurries home from his study abroad. However, although the situation seems quite dire, Sangmin seems to have really missed the sight of Korean women so he scopes out every pretty one that walks by. Noticing a pretty high school girl, Sangmin places his mobile phone on the floor to get a shot up the girl's skirt. However, instead of taking the situation lightly, the girl kicks the phone at Sangmin. The girl turns out to be Seo Boeun a young fifteen-year-old girl with whom Sangmin had grown up and with whom, despite their seven-year age difference, he had been quite close.
Making the standard statements about how nice Boehun has grown, Sangmin and Boehun make their way to her family home where her grandfather, Sangmin's family friend, her parent's and Sangmin's parents await. There they learn that Boehun's grandfather had promised Sangmin's grandfather that their children would be married, however, because they only had boys, the responsibility of marriage falls on Sangmin and Boehun's shoulders and hilarity ensues or not.
Boehun and Sangmin are of course quite against the marriage, but do it anyway to please the old man's wishes. Skipping out on a honeymoon to Jeju Island to spend some time with her base playing kim bap, Korean sushi, loving does her best to avoid Sangming. However, after they move in together, their relationship blossoms and they begin to feel affection for each other, but of course they must keep it a secret and this, and many of the other parts of the film, fall into cliché of the typical Korean romantic Comedy.
While My Little Bride is a heaping bowl of saccharine sludge, It does win a few points for starring Moon Geun-young, who with her energetic performance and highly expressionistic face adds a few bright points to an otherwise boring film.
