Han Gi Joon (Gong Yoo) started "Finding Your First True Love Company" and he takeson Seo Ji Woo as the company's first client. The pair travel all over Korea to find Seo Ji Woo's first love and & in the process Han Gi Joon finds himself falling in love with his first client.
"Finding Mr. Destiny" is based on the Korean musical play "Kim Jong-Ok Chatgi" which has been running since June 2006.
Cast & Credits
Im Su Jung plays a harried and hopeless stage director who is unable to forget her first love. She even has a suitor wanting to marry her and she can't seal the deal. She hides behind her work as an excuse to avoid him and turn him down, driving her father crazy in the process.
I like the antagonistic relationship between the two leads after the story of "Finding Mr. Destiny" gets going. I like the flashback sequences. Both for how the memories are portrayed and the beautiful shots of India. This film has elements of the unexpected that keep it from being a typical, by rote, romantic comedy.
It's a sweet story. Light but not fluffy, well acted and a great ending too.
