Granny Na Ok-Boon (Na Moon-Hee, from hit Korean film MISS GRANNY) is a troublemaker. Known as the ‘goblin granny’ in her neighborhood market, she is the queen of civil complaints. Having filed more than 8,000 complaints in her day she makes the lives of her neighbors, and the civil servants down at city hall, quite miserable. But when she overhears the newest civil servant at the office, Park Min-Jae (Lee Je-Hoon, THE FRONT LINE, ARCHITECTURE 101), speaking English, she becomes set on a new mission. Get Min-Jae to teach her English at all costs.
Staunchly opposed to this idea, Min-Jae can’t understand why she is so insistent. But when a dark secret from Ok-Boon’s past comes to light, he quickly realizes that her purpose goes way beyond anything he or her neighbors could have imagined...Directed by Kim Hyun-Seok (CYRANO AGENCY), I CAN SPEAK brings together comedy and drama in a seamless narrative that will at once make you laugh, and bring tears to your eyes. A Fall hit in South Korea, this film is a must-see for Korean film fans at HIFF 2017.
