| One Fine Day
|| Gong Yu, Sung Yu-ree
|“One Fine Day” is a drama about a girl who works at an aquarium as an aquarist,
that reunites with her brother from whom she’s been separated for 15 years. Different
from other dramas, this one was shot in Australia, giving the viewers many beautiful
new locations to look at. As it introduces a new kind of occupation, called an
aquarist, it uses many different kinds of underwater filming techniques. These
new techniques use a HD camera, which captivates the viewers with great pictures.
“As common as the grains of sand on a sandy beach, as common as the lyrics
of a love song we are about to add on another love story to this common theme.”
This drama is a love story.
You might say “Another love story?” Yes it is another love story.
The drama might turn out to be another typical and ordinary love story and you
might wonder why we even bother to tell another love story… the reason is because
love stories are still the interesting stories and there hasn’t been a true
love story that’s been told. People still have a great interest in love stories.
In this drama each character holds a problem with his or her heart (love). A
guy who thinks that he never had a heart from the beginning and a girl who thinks
that this very man is her heart and another guy who, after losing the one he
loved, thinks that he doesn’t have a heart anymore, and a girl who looks weak
but has the most powerful heart out of them all, which helps make everyone’s
heart beat again. The story of this girl is the main subject of the drama.
These four characters...
Face such serious and cruel trials and tribulations that they make them want
to die waiting for their resolutions.
Therefore there might even be some who say that these characters shouldn’t even
have started up their love in the first place.
But while this drama is in process our one wish and hope is that all the viewers
while watching the characters fight against fate, cheer for them in the hope
that they attain their love and that fate might just pass them by. Our last
hope is that by watching this drama the viewers come to think that if they were
in the characters’ shoes they would endure all the pain and hardships needed
to attain their love.
And so by the time the drama ends we hope that the viewers thirst, interests
and expectations about love are all filled.

‘Gun’ a name his father gave so that he would grow up to
encompass the whole world like the sky.
But now Gun is a ‘yellow gun’, a
His name is also his nickname because of he has a fast
fist and because without question he knocks people down with his first punch. He
doesn’t even need to take around a mob or worry about other gang members
attacking him because they don’t even dare to touch him.
His main job is
swindling and the thing he does best is lying.
If someone asks why he is in
such a business his answer would be it’s the same as asking why someone puts the
bean paste on the lettuce and not on the meat when eating meat wrapped with
lettuce or how people came about putting on their pants before they put on their
shirts. He came to Australia, a land he wasn’t familiar with, lead by Kyung-taek
where he became quicker at packing his suitcase than his school bag due to all
the late-night runaways. On days when Kyung-taek would not come home he had to
lie and beg for food.
At times Kyung-taek would get drunk on cheap vodka and
start singing ‘Mok-po’s Tears’ and Gun would fall into his faint memories.
his memories there is a girl who cries without a sound, a girl with tears
rolling down her face.
When Gun was adopted in Australia after his parents’
death he went a week without any food or water insisting that he would not go
unless it was with his little sister, but Kyung-taek did not give in.
Unfortunately, he promises his little sister to some day come back for her. Not
knowing how far Australia was from Korea he just gives his oath to keep his
promise with her.
He thinks that these memories have become as faint as a
fossil from the Paleozoic era, but he comes back to Seoul and gets a call from
Sung-chan telling Gun that he has found someone with the same family picture as

She has lived 15 years of her life as Park Hae-won

almost as good as him. Actually she is a level above him. Everyone knows that

as if she were happy, joyful, and not lonely; you name it she can do
She should have already been a college student but since she has
been living as Park Hae-won she is still a senior in high school but soon she is
going to quit everything.
She has been planning to get away from this house
even though everyone says being born into the house is like winning the lottery.
She looks very weak, as though if someone hugs her every bone in her body would
break, but she carries a strong and audacious character inside of her.

While other kids called their moms’ when crying she cried calling out
for her brother, but her parents left her and her brother then soon after her

surprised when she saw her new brother Tae-won.

All this love starts to get to her, but right when she is about to run
away from it all her brother, who told her that he’ll be back to get her, really
comes to take her back.
Just like it hasn’t been that long, without a change
“Don’t you remember? I promised you I’d come back for you.
How could she forget? She waited, counting down the days with her
fingers again and again until the fingerprints on those fingers became faint,

He is self-confident, humorous
He seems to be the most cheerful person and has not had any
hardships since the day he was born. Just looking at him seems to make everyone
forget about their hardships. He is of course very popular. Many women hit on
him and he also does not push those away that come to him. He likes to bet and
always bets on everything; for example “If I can throw this cup into that
garbage can then I’ll go on a date with you,” or “If you can guess the number of
the next bus then I’ll give you a kiss.”
At first he approached Ha-neul in a
joking way, but this girl is either too quick-witted or on a higher level,
because no matter what he does she just gives him a smile and no special
response to any of his actions.
Even if he tells her that he is hitting on
her she just says “O.K.” and smiles back at him. He thinks of Ha-neul’s actions
as somewhat fun, and from some point watching her makes him forget about
Kyung-won. Kyung-won is the woman he absolutely loved when he was about 20. The
woman he lost at a beach they went together to. First he went to the beach to
find Kyung-won, then he went to erase her from his heart, and finally he went to
the beach so that he can be with her again. At the beach he learned that life is
something you adapt yourself to.
If you try to take on the wave you end up
paying the price; like when you try to erase someone from your heart it just
tears you up even more, and Ha-neul seems to know this. She doesn’t know how to
get mad or cry she just knows how to smile, but one day he sees her crying
without a sound, only that of the tears falling from her eyes.
The moment he
sees her tears, he feels something opening up deep in his heart.

“Brother you would also die for me
right?” “Yeah, sure.” “Gun, die for me!” “Alright.”
She grew up overprotected
by these three men.
She not only has a pretty face but also long legs; in
other words she is has the perfect body. She starts a whistling orchestra of
guys, walking down the streets waving her ebony colored hair and wearing jeans
and a white shirt.
Among those guys there have been a lot of decent guys and
successful Korean-Americans but she didn’t even care to look at them. Other than
her looks she is very pure.
She likes Gun the best and she thinks that it’s
alright if her heart bursts and she dies as long as she’s with him. She
over-exaggerates being happy, excited, and her affections. Hyo-joo is always the
one that begs for a kiss from emotionless Gun, but it’s all right with her and
doesn’t bother her a bit.

tells her that he won’t be gone for long but Hyo-joo follows right after him.
She meets Ha-neul and picks up on her undefined nervousness.
At first she
felt sorry for Ha-neul because she felt as if she had stolen her brother from
her for the last 15 years, but Hyo-joo keeps feeling nervous, worrying that Gun
is going to leave her. It really seems as if her heart is going to
