Storyline

Gi-joon starts an agency that helps people locate their long-lost first loves and Ji-woo becomes his first client. She is dragged there by her worried father, Captain SEO, who learns that Ji-woo is still hung up on Kim Jung-wook, a man she fell in love with on her trip to India in her early twenties. In offer to identify the face of Ji-woo's long lost first love, the two travel all around the country and come face-to-face with a smörgåsbord of Kim Jong-wook's. After days on end of little success in the search for Kim Jong-wook, the agency receives a single phone call of fate. An inquiry from none other than Kim Jong-wook himself, hoping to find Jin-woo through the help of Gi-joon's agency. Gi-joon tells Ji-woo the good news, but having realized his feelings for her, Gi-joon turns and runs back to Ji-woo. Written by CJ Entertainment

First love isn't always a lasting love
2 February 2011 | by sleestakk_2000See all my reviews

Jang Yu-Jung's directorial debut, Finding Mr. Destiny, plays out its looking-for-love in an ugly duck framing quite nicely. Rather surprising considering I wasn't expecting too much. The first hour moves a little slow as all the pieces are put into place but the second hour is really effective. The Burlesque/Star is Born moment is absolutely fantastic. Im Soo-Jung (I Am a Cyborg, Woochi) does a great job carrying the load.

Seo Ji-Woo (Soo-Jung) is the unattached stage manager for a dance production when her father decides to hire a "Finding Your First True Love Company" to help her locate a long lost love she met while visiting India 10 years earlier. The agency is operated by nerdy Han Gi-Joon (Gong Yoo) who assists Ji-Woo in this seemingly impossible adventure. I won't spoil it but you can guess what happens if you've seen familiar romantic comedies placing two opposite personalities together. Despite the formulaic story it's still a good film with some wonderful moments.
