Korea’s current box office champ I Can Speak will make its way to the United States on October 6 from CJ Entertainment.
In a small town, Ok-boon is known as the Goblin Granny, a feisty, elderly woman who combs through the town for any sign of trouble. Over a span of 20 years, she has filed over 8,000 complaints to the district office. Seen as a headache, Min-jae, a young government official who is a stickler for the rules is brought in to control the Goblin Granny. Tensions rise, but when Ok-boon finds out that Min-jae is fluent in English she begs him to teach her. What starts as a simple relationship between an eager student and a begrudged teacher, surprisingly evolves into a deep friendship. As Min-jae gets closer to his new friend, he slowly finds out why the Goblin Granny is so interested in speaking English and the serious problems she is facing.
Na Mun-Hee and Lee Je-Hoon star in the comedy-drama directed by Kim Hyun-Seok. The film was released in its native South Korea on September 21 and currently is the #1 film there.
