Melancholy new promos for JTBC’s I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day

A bundle of new promos have been released for JTBC’s upcoming romance I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day, featuring new character posters, stills, and a video teaser.

The drama stars actors Park Min-young (Her Private Life) and Seo Kang-joon (Watcher) as old childhood classmates and friends. In their youth, Park’s character had moved away to the big city, but life in Seoul had not been easy for her. Betrayed by everyone she trusted and feeling kicked to the curb, Park decides to return to her roots in the countryside. And she goes back to her hometown where she reconnects with Seo Kang-joon, who now runs a small independent bookshop.

In the new character posters, both Park Min-young and Seo Kang-joon are depicted outdoors, taking in the view of the winter snow. The combined poster, featuring both actors together, includes a simple caption: “The place where you are.” However, the same phrase is preceded by different text in the individual posters. Park Min-young’s poster shows: “Can I lean on there? The place where you are.” While Seo Kang-joon’s caption says: “Can I look forward to it? The place where you are.”

In the newly released stills, we get our first look at Moon Jung-hee who plays the role of Shim Myung-yeo. A best-selling writer, she enjoyed considerable fame as a young adult having graduated from an accredited university as well. Now in her 40’s, she lives a quiet life in the countryside where she runs a guest house. Described as having a strong sense of pride and a guarded personality, she can comes across as uncaring but has a lot of affection for others. She is also Park Min-young’s aunt.

The new teaser is a short clip that focuses on Park Min-young. She opens a book written by real-life poet Jung Ho-seung, makes a cup of tea, and reads a poem by the candlelight. The camera zooms in on Park’s face as she becomes pensive and she reads, “Do not cry. To be lonely is to be human.” Cutting to a shot of Park Min-young through the window, the teaser ends with Park’s voice-over: “JTBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day.”

Writing for the drama is Han Ga-ram (Summer Days) and directing will be done by PD Han Ji-seung who previously worked with actress Moon Jung-hee on Alone in Love.

JTBC’s romance I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day is currently set to premiere on February 24, following Diary of a Prosecutor.

Good luck with that.

If I had the right skills I'd put together a clip of the Amazon logo sneaking up behind him, with Jaws music.

I’d love to see how he can survive in the countryside and make a living out of that.

Tom Hanks will make a cameo to run his establishment out of business and replace it with a mega-chain like in 'You've Got Mail'.

Touché, @lordcobol! I love it! That's exactly what I thought.

Perhaps all is not lost. The proprietor may turn out to be the young Korean counterpart of the antiquarian bookseller in 84 Charing Cross Road. ;-)

Will watch. I have to admit, I watch everything Park Min Young does. She always seems to imbue things with a sort of sunny, strong optimism that just makes me feel better: PMY tonic.

As much as the description for this drama sounds right up my alley (who doesn't love stories involving handsome owners of small independent bookstores), I'll really be watching it for Lee Jae-Wook and Kim Young-dae...while wishing for cameos from Haru and Dan-oh. Dramaland just isn't the same since O-Haru (Extraordinary You) finished.

This post got me in A POEM A DAY mode. I believe this is the text of the poem Hae-won (PMY) is reading. It is beautiful. https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/nation/2018/09/181_182804.html

Ah thank you for linking that lovely poem article! I hope the poems or prose used in the drama are just as poignant if not more.

@marcusnyc20 bong-soo,
Late to the party, but glad I finally got here. ;-)

Thanks for the pointer to Jeong Ho-seung's picturesque poem "To Daffodils." That oblique reference to Narcissus via the genus of flowers that bears his name is a lovely twist. In my mind's eye, I can see scattered clumps of bright yellow daffodils with their strap-like leaves erupting out of the bare ground. Several passages leapt out at me.

"...When snow falls, walk on snowy paths,
when rain falls, walk on rainy paths."

When you walk on the path, walk on the path. Whether rainy or snowy, it is still the path. It may even be the one that diverges in a yellow wood, "the one less traveled by."

"...Sometimes even God is so lonely he weeps."

Suddenly Kim Shin, the Shining and Lonely God, comes to mind. (Oh how I wish that had been GOBLIN'S title in English from the get-go. I would have understood his character arc so much better.) I'm also reminded of John Donne's meditation 'No Man is an Island.'

As always thanks @pakalanapikake for the links.
From what I recall. I don’t think you followed A POEM A DAY when it aired. (Mea culpa if you did.) We beanies had a ball.
A couple things. The drama had lousy ratings it’s entire run. However I give it credit for maintaining a high production quality for its entire run. It really was a great introductory course on Korean poetry.
This is one of my favorite scenes in the drama. It comes late. It is in episode 14. The poem is narrated by Jang Dong-yoon who I thought gave a career performance as Min-ho. (He narrates 2 poems in the drama and they were my favorites.) It shows the care that was taken in presenting the poems. The poem is “Lily Magnolia” by
Do Jong-hwan, poet and politician.
(Thanks to our beanie who transcribed all the poems and linking the video.)

@marcusnyc20 bong-soo,

You're most welcome. ;-)

You're right, I did not live-watch A POEM A DAY, and still haven't gotten around to it. IIRC, my plate was very full when it aired. Thanks for posting this delicious link, which is not only to a wonderful poem, but has gotten my attention for a drama that I think I will enjoy, especially as Lee Joon-hyuk 1984 is in it. (How did I ever miss this?! I think my plate was already full when it aired in the late winter/early spring of 2018. IIRC, MARRY ME NOW? and THIRTY BUT SEVENTEEN were two of the dramas I live-watched back then. And GRAND PRINCE, with DIY recaps. No wonder I skipped POEM.) I have to be in the mood to contemplate poetry, so that was probably a factor, too.

I recall that you enjoyed A POEM A DAY, and am grateful that you shared a taste of it here. And many thanks to @hades for transcribing the text and linking it to the scene. Daebak! Now to figure out how to slip it into my schedule... a couple of stressful finales are upon me in the coming weeks. ;-)

@pakalanapikake,
I am so glad you enjoyed what you saw.
Thinking back about APAD it took me probably 4 episodes (with the arrival of LJH) that I started to warm up to the drama. I think the way the characters were first introduced hurt the drama in the ratings and unfortunately they never recovered. I think the same thing happened with another favorite of mine I AM NOT A ROBOT. I don’t know what the answer is but writers and directors have to present characters in a way that viewers will want to return.

Sorry about going off the rails here. Actually this probably is along the lines of your comment below. I am looking forward to NICE WEATHER (riff on Viki’s title). As much as I am ready for an action drama with SKJ I am sure he will be great in this one. He just cannot have another family from hell a la THE THIRD CHARM.
Please writer-nim.

@marcusnyc20 bong-soo,

Thanks for the tip about the opening 4 episodes of A POEM A DAY. I'll keep that in mind.

I know what you mean about dramas that get off to rough starts that alienate the audience. YOUR HONOR nearly lost me for that very reason. I totally agree that writers and directors have to win over the audience right out of the chute. "You only get one chance to make a good first impression" holds true for dramas as well as people. Even antiheroes have to be appealing or mysterious enough to entice viewers to keep tuning in for the revelation as to how they got that way, as in LOOKOUT.

Yikes! It hadn't occurred to me that uri bookseller could have a horrible family. Not THE FOURTH CHARM!!!

*runs away screaming*

No need to apologize. I totally agree. I don't think I'll be able to survive another genre mash-up that involves heinous murders and/or horrid relatives. For once, unadulterated relaxingly-pleasant escapism would be a real treat.

BTW, I like your shortened title: NICE WEATHER. ;-)

I felt that on a spiritual level. I have no idea how many times I told myself that.

A story about books, beautiful cinematography and slow pace are my cup of tea. I don't know but it seems like I'm in the minority here who can't seem to be invested in any of PMY's characters (Healer, Queen for Seven Days, Remember - War of the Sons). I'll be waiting a couple of eps and hearing Beanies' reviews before making a decision whether to watch it or not.

This sounds & looks beautiful. I hope unlike The Third Charm where we didn't get a happy ending the third time when things are supposed to fall in place & we are supposed to get a happy romantic ending; IWFYWTWIN (let's just call it weather love. Ugh that abbreviation is a mouthful. Defeats the whole purpose imo) does find love & happiness & sticks with it throughout the story & the ending.

Good ending jaebal!

Thank you for the latest update on I'LL FIND YOU ON A BEAUTIFUL DAY, @tccolb. I'm looking forward to this drama. I just hope that no face-blind, psychopathic, book-burning serial killers pop out of the woodwork, and that the Bookmobile Of Doom remains parked at the library. I'm hoping for a vibe along the lines of CHOCOLATE, but without the horrid relatives, noble idiocy, and unremitting tragedy. Is it too much to ask for a slice-of-life, friends-to-lovers tale that is only that, and nothing more? Just nicely told, with realistic character growth and development? And lots of good books in a cozy inner sanctum, with bottomless cups of tea and coffee as viriditas heals the OTP's frazzled souls while spring greens the surrounding hillsides?

One thing that's been driving me bonkers: the various unwieldy titles for this show. I'm so fed up, I'm beginning to think of it as FAIR-WEATHER FRIENDS. Argggh!

Which is still less onerous than the array of alternate titles for Jang Hyuk's new drama, TELL ME WHAT YOU SAW -- which also features a female cellist:
TALK AS YOU SEE
SPEAK AS SEEN
SAY IT AS YOU SEE IT
SPEAK AS YOU SEE
CALL IT LIKE YOU SEE IT. Yowzer!
