Was Juno ( the Movie) A Ripoff?



People love to hawk movies in this country from Asia as tho there is no internet.  I recently worked a gig here in NY with a korean woman named Juna Lee...so her name started this conversation. Apparently there is a Korean comedy movie called Jenny, Juno written and directed by Kim-Jo Hoon. It's about a middle school girl and her boyfriend who gets pregnant and then delivers. Sounds a little familiar but even though the Korean and American versions are dead on screen writter Diablo Cody says she never knew it existed. I guess that's possible...

hollywood does this all the time.

The reason(s) why i don't think they took the movie was because:

1. the movie was wack. overrated

2. I assumed that the U.S. was the only country where that kind of debauchery and disregard for life was prevalent. I guess I have been proven wrong.

There is no original thought. You may think you've come up with something original but life is too similar around the world, every story has been told at some point in history in some language or another.
