Storyline

The film tells the story of an elderly woman (played by Na Moon Hee) who constantly files complaints with the local office about the wrongs that she sees around her each day. Along the way, she forms an unlikely friendship with a junior civil service officer (played by Lee Je Hoon) who begins to teach her English. Though the film is a comedy, the genre serves as a vehicle to discuss the deeper topic of Korean comfort women during World War II. Written by subratjain1

i thought this movie is boring....then i cry!
15 March 2019 | by rykosanSee all my reviews

At first, i came across to this movie because i just finished 'Signal' drama series where Lee Je-hoon were the lead actors. Without seing any synopsis about this movie, i keep on guessing why the grandma really wants to learned English. And the plot develop really good, and i even cry for last 20 minute. Good movie and recommended!
