This is a comedy movie that acted by one of my favorite comedic actor ‘Cha Tae Hyun’ who also acted in the movie ‘My Sassy Girl‘. Written and directed by first time film maker Kang Hyung Chul and produced by A.P.T director Ahn Byung Ki.

Story was about this thirty plus former pop singer Hyun Su (Cha Tae Hyun) who is now a popular radio DJ. He answered call in on his program and chat with the listeners. One day, there was this listener who called up and told him that she had been trying to find her father for a very long time and she was still searching for him. As this was a touching story heard by many listeners, Hyun Su started a program to follow up the story of this girl.

One evening when Hyun Su got home and prepare dinner for his lover, there was someone at the door. A teenager Jung Nam (Park Bo Young) carrying her luggage shows up claiming to be his daughter. And she brought along a mischievous little boy, Ki Dong (Hwang Suk Hyun – he’s very cute and adorable in the movie!), whom she claims to be her son.

In a blink of an eye, Hyun Su had become a father and a grandfather. He become panic and afraid that media will discovers that he has a teen daughter. His career would be over if the media catches the scent of this.

Meanwhile, Jung Nam loves singing a lot. She took part in a singing contest organized by Hyun Su’s radio station. This is one of my favorite scene in the movie. The song that Jung Nam sang in the movie was real nice. (Watch the video below) In the second part of the video was when she entered the contest and having her rehearsal. I was really impressed with the high tone. (For your information, both song was not sung by her)

Park Bo Young who also acted in the movie ‘Our School E.T.’ won the Best Newcomer Actress at the 45th Baeksang Arts Awards. Speeding Scandal collected over 8 million admissions during its showing from December 2008 to Jan 2009 to become one of the Korea’s biggest hits of all time.
