About FINDING MR. DESTINY
Looking for your long-lost first love? Call the First Love Agency!
He’s fussy, organized, and honest to a fault. When Gi-joon (GONG Yoo, Coffee Prince) is fired from his job, he opens the First Love Agency, a one-man organization dedicated to helping others find their long-lost first loves.
She’s independent and feisty. Stage director Ji-woo (LIM Soo-jung, I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK) is dragged to the First Love Agency by her father, who is convinced she won’t get married because she isn’t over the handsome stranger she met during a long-ago vacation in India.
With a name and the dates of her trip as their only clues, can Gi-joon and Ji-woo work together to find her first love? Or will they discover that destiny has some surprises in store for them?
Includes the feature film and more than 30 minutes of video extras – all with on/off English subtitles!
