Review

Clocking in at almost two hours that you never want to end, My Little Bride is simply just what Korean romantic comedy needs at a time of trite formula and My Sassy Girl rip-offs. As the second biggest domestic film of 2004, itshows its right to be there in spite of a slightly offbeat story and change of pace from your average film of the genre, which could have disagreed with your common viewer. Kim Ho-joon has crafted an infectious debut that knows what the viewer wants, gives it to us for almost the entire running time, and quickly zips through the required melodrama in breakneck speed, while sprinkling some drama throughout the film. College wanna-be playboy Park Sang-min arrives home to meet his childhood friend Boeun, now a fifteen year old girl in high school, who s also been called home for an important family matter. Boeun s grandfather started a friendship with Sang-min s grandfather years ago during war, and before Sang-min s grandfather died, they agreed to have their children marry. A problem arose after the death because they both had sons, so Boeun s grandfather decided to pass down the pact to the next generation, so he could keep his promise with his friend when he meets him in death. Boeun s grandfather, allegedly on his deathbed, gets the two families to agree, and springs it on Sang-min and Boeun to their dismay, and they immediately refuse. Soon, out of guilt and promise, they do get married, but between Boeun s high-school life and Sang-min s not-so-surprising position, they ve somehow got to figure out how to live with each other. The fun all seems to start when Boeun is referred to as a girl, and she claims that in the old days, women her age would be married by that time. What a perfect prelude to grandfather s question. While it may seem like taboo to match a college student up with a fifteen-year-old girl, especially when the guy initially seems borderline perverted, the naivity of most of the relationship is one of the more endearing qu --http://www.acdrifter.com/Asian-Movie-Review/102/My-Little-Bride.html

I've been watching more and more gems coming out of Korea and so far, in terms of romantic comedies, there hasn't been one that really has disappointed me.

"My Little Bride" is such a film that could have gone wrong but fortunately works itself out to be an enjoyable film.

The storyline for "My Little Bride" focuses on a 16-year old girl named Boeun. She's a typical teenager that studies hard, has a crush on the high school baseball pitcher and enjoying life as a teen.

For Sangmin, he's a university student who makes the travel back home to Korea and is greeted by Boeun, who he has always treated like a little sister.

Upon his return, the two learn than Boeun's grandfather promised Sangmin's grandfather that their kids would marry.

Unfortunately, both children were men, thus the promise was carried on to the father's children and thus, the parents of Boeun and Sangmin have agreed to have their children marry each other.

As expected, both children does not accept the marriage (especially since Boeun is a young, high school teenager) but when the grandfather fakes his sickness as near death, the two decide to honor their grandfathers wish and get married.

Thus the story of Sangmin and Boeun and how they live together as husband and wife, how Boeun continues her high school life while trying to get close to her baseball playing friend and maintaining a marriage that she keeps secret.

As for Sangmin, he seems to honor the marriage but what can he do, since the marriage was forced and Boeun, has her own teen life.
What I enjoyed about "My Little Bride" is how the story progresses and how we see both characters grow and how they look at each other differently.

This movie is so sweet and the actors are so perfectly cute! I gave it to a friend who has seen it 11+ times already! I've seen it 5 times myself. This movie introduced us to the melodramatic but comedic and highly enjoyable world of K-Drama! Loved it!

This movie is funny and cute without being trite. It follows Boeun and Sangmin as they marry for her grandfather's sake. There's lots of comedy as Boeun tries to juggle a husband and a boyfriend while keeping this hidden from the school.

A must see if you love Korean comedies!

I have rented this movie so often that the staff of the library have ordered me to buy it for myself. It is great to lighten up anyone's mood. The main characters have been brought up to be very close to each other, and are tricked by their grandfather/stand-in grandfather to marry so that he can face his best friend in heaven when the grandfather dies. The issue: the girl is only 16 years old. Thrown in some quirky personalities, the school heart-throb, a strategically placed internship, and some queen-bee types and you have My Little Bride. It can brighten up your most dreadful of moods so if you like romantic comedies, or just need cheering up, this is the film for you!

This is actually my second time watching this movie and I still like it a lot. The story is about a pair of childhood friends forced to get married due to their grandfather's old promise to each other. The guy just came back from the states and will teach in a high school, which just so happens to be the school the girl is attending. They are forced to marry each other and have to keep it a secret from the school. This movie have lots of humor in it and it's so sweet.

This is a short, sweet, sweet Korean movie....and one of my favorite (its gotten so most Korean movies are now my favorite, and more so considering what Hollywood is putting out)! The acting is top-form, and I highly recommend it.

This is a highly amusing film about an arranged marriage between a teen age high school student and an college age playboy that have grown up together with the young man as an "older brother" for the girl. The two are forced to marry because they believe they are required to fulfill the girl's grandfather's dying wish. The grandfather is not really dying but knows that the young man and girl do belong together and uses the "terminal illness" ruse to achieve this goal. He had taken care of the young man's family after their patriarch, who was his best friend passed away; before his friends death, the two had pledged to have their children marry. Both families had sons however so that the pledge was then passed down to their grandchildren. Although both the young man and the girl are dead set against marrying and go through some hilarious bumps in the road after the wedding, their relationship ultimately develops into a real love The main characters are very likable with the young man realizing his feelings of love before the girl does. Although not quite at the level of "My Sassy Girl", it is a fun filled romp.

Glad I eventually stopped passing this little gem up. The very idea of a teenager being married off in order to fulfill an old promise sounds completely ludicrous and even a little vulgar. That being said, having an appreciation for Korean shows, I took the plunge and found the storyline to be surprisingly good (B+) and even a little endearing. How do you cheer this heroine on? In which direction? The husband or the crush? What about the groom? Bowing to the cultural respect of elders padlocks him to a teenie bopper and effectively removes him from the social field of more age appropriate singles. Of course, that leaves the biggest question of all... Why would a grandfather do such a thing?! Sneaky guy.

More could be done to make this a better movie, script-wise, but it does qualify for movie night.
