Shim Eun-kyung’s grandma body-swap comedy Suspicious Girl
Man, I love a good body-swap movie. I hope this one is as funny as it looks. Here’s a look at the posters, trailer, and stills for Shim Eun-kyung’s new young-again body-swap comedy Suspicious Girl (also going by the English title Miss Granny), about a 74-year-old grandma who suddenly gets zapped back into her twentysomething body. It’s the opposite of Big and 13 Going on 30, or maybe the extreme version of 17 Again, magnified by a 50-year age gap.
Na Moon-hee (King’s Family) stars as the foul-mouthed 74-year-old granny who one day discovers the disparaging news that her family intends to put her away in a senior care center. Sung Dong-il (Answer Me 1994) plays her son, and Kim Seul-gi (Flower Boy Next Door) and B1A4’s Jin-young are her misbehaving grandchildren. Upset by the news that she’s no longer wanted by her family, she wanders into town and comes upon a photo studio that promises to make you look fifty years younger. Granny gets all dolled up to take her funeral photo, and then comes out in the body of her actual twentysomething self (Shim Eun-kyung).
She eventually decides to live it up in her young hot bod while she has the chance, and ends up in a funny love square with three men: Lee Jin-wook (Nine) as a nice young man who finds her old-fashioned ways cute, Park In-hwan (One Well-Raised Daughter) as the neighbor gramps who’s sweet on Granny before the swap, and Jin-young as the grandson who develops an inappropriate crush on the pretty girl without realizing it’s his grandmother inside. Haha.
In the trailer, Granny tells Lee Jin-wook her life story, which sounds freaking hilarious coming out of Shim Eun-kyung: “It’s been a while since I parted ways with my deceased husband. My son’s all grown up and married now, and there’s a halbae who likes me and chases me around, so I stayed with him for a while, but I fought with his horrible daughter and got kicked out.” He asks what kind of man she likes, and she sighs, “A man just needs to not starve his wife and children, and be good at night.” HEE.
Suspicious Girl premieres January 23.
