YesAsia Editorial Description

The search for first love leads to a new love in the heartwarming romantic comedy Finding Mr. Destiny. Making the jump from theater to cinema, playwright-turned-director Jang Yoo Jung transports her long-running hit musical to the big screen, and it proved to be equally popular with moviegoers. Gong Yoo, who sealed his heartthrob image in the TV drama The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince, makes his highly anticipated post-army comeback as the neat-freak romantic hero pining after a woman - Lim Soo Jung (Jeon Woo Chi) - who's pining after her first love. Staying true to its roots, there's a musical number in the film, too!

Gi Joon (Gong Yoo) just started a very unique business, an agency that specializes in finding people's first loves. His first client is Ji Woo (Lim Soo Jung), an odd young woman who met her first love during a trip to India. She only knows his name: Kim Jong Wook. Stubbornly precise by nature and a bit too passionate about work, Gi Joon is determined to complete his first job, even if it means he has to track down every Kim Jong Wook in Korea! As Gi Joon and Ji Woo travel around the country trying to find her first love, Gi Joon finds himself falling for his client instead.

This edition includes audio commentary, making-of, poster shoot, music video, and trailers.

Synopsis

“안녕하십니까! 첫사랑을 찾아드리는 첫사랑 찾기 사무소입니다!”

2:8 가르마에 호리호리한 체형, 돌다리도 두드려 보고 건너는 고지식한 성격의 소유자 한기준(공유). 지나치게 강한 책임감과 융통성 제로에 가까운 성격 덕에 회사에서 잘린 기준은 우연한 기회에 기발한 창업 아이템을 찾아 낸다. 바로 아직까지 첫사랑을 잊지 못한 사람들을 위해 첫사랑을 찾아주는 일! 기준은 고객에게 무한 감동을 선사하겠다는 열정과 패기로 지체 없이 1인 기업 ‘첫사랑 찾기 사무소’를 오픈 한다.


턱 선의 외로운 각도, 콧날의 날카로운 지성, 깊고도 낭만적인 목소리...
“제 첫사랑의 이름은 김.종.욱…”

남자친구로부터 프러포즈를 받은 서지우(임수정)는 딸이 시집가기만을 학수고대하는 홀 아버지의 압박에도 불구하고 결국 프러포즈를 거절하고 만다. 뮤지컬 무대 감독으로 일에만 매달려온 그녀 맘 속에는 ‘김종욱’이라는 잊을 수 없는 사람이 있기 때문. 아버지에게 등 떠밀려 ‘첫사랑 찾기 사무소’를 찾은 서지우는 우여곡절 끝에 이제는 기억 조차 희미한 첫사랑의 상대 김종욱을 찾아보기로 결심한다.


“그렇다고 제가 일일이 따라다녀요? 하는 일 관두구?”
“정보도 빈약한데, 의지까지 희박해서야 되겠습니까?”

지우가 자신의 첫사랑에 대해 알고 있는 정보는 ‘김종욱’이라는 이름 석자가 전부. 하지만 회사의 흥망성쇠를 결정할 첫 의뢰를 성공시키기 위해 필사적인 한기준은 특유의 치밀함과 꼼꼼함으로 ‘김종욱’의 실체에 한 걸음씩 다가간다. 서지우가 고객감동을 위한 한기준의 지나친 열의에 화가 나다 못해 점점 지쳐갈 무렵, 한기준은 전국에 대량 분포(?) 중인 김종욱들을 찾아나서는 여정에 동행할 것을 서지우에게 요구하는데…

Professional Review of "Finding Mr. Destiny (DVD) (Korea Version)"

May 16, 2011

Korean romantic comedy Finding Mr. Destiny is likely to be of particular interest to genre fans, given that it marks the first post-army outing for TV heartthrob Gong Yoo, who made his name with popular drama The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince. The film was directed by Jang Yoo Jung, adapted from her own hit stage musical, and also stars actress Lim Soo Jung (recently in (Jeon Woo Chi) as his love interest, along with Lee Cheong Ah (Romance of their Own), Cheon Ho Jin (I Saw the Devil), Shin Sung Rok (The Worst Guy Ever) and Ryu Seung Soo (Battlefield Heroes) as the usual assortment of comedy relief best friends and meddlers.

Gong Yoo takes the role of Gi Joon, an anally-retentive and uptight young man who loses his job at a travel agency and starts his own company, a one man business that helps people to find their long lost first loves. He finally lands a client in Ji Woo (Lim Soo Jung), an unlucky in love theatre director whose pushy father hires Gi Joon to find a man from her past called Kim Jong Wook who she met while backpacking in India. Although he has little to go on beyond the name, Gi Joon throws himself into the case, travelling around the country with Ji Woo in an effort to track down her former paramour, inadvertently falling for her in the process.

It's pretty obvious from early on that Finding Mr. Destiny is based upon a musical, with much of the film taking place in a theatre, revolving around Ji Woo's job as a stage director, and with Jang Yoo Jung managing to work in a few numbers and set pieces. Seeing Jang playing to her strengths, these sequences do seem to be the parts of the film she is most confident with, somewhat more so than the comedy elements. Whilst they really don't have much to do with anything, in particular a big musical finale which comes rather out of nowhere, they are well handled and energetic, and help to give the film a slightly different feel to most other romantic comedies. Also setting the film apart from other genre efforts with near-identical plots is the travel theme, which involves multiple flashbacks to Ji Woo's time in India, adding a certain feel of fate and globetrotting, and making for some gorgeous local colour with some eye catching shots of the Blue City. The film does in general have a strong visual component, with the couple's journey around various regions in Korea also resulting in some lovely scenery and panoramas, making it a sort of romantic road movie.

Whilst the central concept of a first love detective agency is patently ridiculous, the film doesn't take itself seriously, wisely aiming for a fun, bouncy feel. At the same time, it also avoids at least some of the more common genre cliches, never pushing the whole Sassy Girl angle too far or having Ji Woo spend too much time berating or beating Gi Joon, and it benefits from a more laid back air. This having been said, the film does force in the obligatory getting drunk scene - judging by the country's romantic comedies, one might be forgiven for thinking that a high proportion of single young Korean women are raging alcoholics. The humour for the most part is based around embarrassment gags, though without the slapstick every getting too far out, and the film is endearingly silly rather than crude.

Obviously, the cast are the main selling point, and Gong Yoo does a good job of balancing nerdy with likeable, being goofy at times without playing too much of a fool. As a result, although there isn't a great deal to his character, he manages to make the requisite shift to romantic leading man for the more melodramatic last third when things inevitably turn all serious and emotional. Lim Soo Jung is also perfectly acceptable as the female lead, and though developing along entirely predictable lines, their relationship does hold the interest and tick the all-important genre boxes.

Finding Mr. Destiny may not be anything new, though it's a nicely done and enjoyable romantic comedy that should certainly please fans or anyone looking for a little light entertainment. With Gong Yoo making a successful, if perhaps unambitious return to screens, the film makes for pleasant viewing, with just about enough in the way of international travel and stage scenes to stand out from the crowd.
