Gamunui yeonggwang (Marrying the Mafia) (2002)
A fish-out-of-water gangster comedy featuring two of Korea's hottest young stars, Gamunui Yeonggwang (aka Marrying the Mafia) weaves a humorous tale of chance meeting and bizarre circumstance. Waking up one morning next to the beautiful Jang Jin-kyeong (Kim Jeong-eun) without any recollection of how he got there, hotshot young lawyer Park Dae-seo (Jeong Jun-ho) learns to his horror that his newfound bedmate is the daughter of a notorious mob kingpin (Park Geun-hyeong). As her protective older brother In-tae (Yu Dong-geun) insists that Park marry Jang in order to maintain his honor, it's soon revealed that In-tae has schemed to improve his family name by forcing the up-and-coming lawyer to marry his sister. Though the new couple seems to get along regardless of their odd circumstances, their romance is quickly challenged by Park's longtime girlfriend, Yu-jin (Lee Seo-yeon), who has no intentions of letting her man go so easily. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Gamunui yeonggwang (Marrying the Mafia)
It's a comedy that tries too hard to be funny, therefore it isn't. It has a plot that tries too hard to be crazy and off the wall, so it isn't that either.
An engaging romantic farce with classic screwball overtones, offset by particularly vicious scenes of gangland violence.
The unusual cultural details add a little color to the usual romantic turbulence, but it's otherwise as rote as its American counterparts.
