Fun. But not as hilarious as I expected.
27 July 2009 | by GemMothSee all my reviews

This movie caught my attention when I saw that Tae-hyun Cha was playing in it and that it was a success in Korea last year. Tae-hyun Cha is the lead actor that you may have seen in My Sassy Girl.

I wanted to laugh like I laugh when I saw My Sassy Girl. Well I didn't happen. Don't get me wrong Scandal Makers is fun. I wanted to see something very similar to My Sassy Girl, I couldn't be satisfied with such expectations. Don't run away from the movie. You may like it because it's a family movie. The screenplay is good maybe even better than My Sassy Girl's. The subject isn't the same. Scandal Makers is more about family, it's more mature. Because the main character is simply older (about 35). I just like better the silliness of My Sassy Girl.
