You Are My Sunshine (Hangul: 너는 내 운명; RR: Neoneun nae unmyeong, literally: "You are my destiny") is a 2005 South Korean film directed by Park Jin-pyo and starring Jeon Do-yeon and Hwang Jung-min in the lead roles.[2] It was released in Korea on 23 September 2005, distributed by CJ Entertainment and ran at 121 minutes.

The official English title is named after a Jimmie Davis song, "You Are My Sunshine", which is used on the soundtrack.


Seok-joong, a farmer in his mid thirties, is desperate to find a wife and settle down. After backing out of a scheme to set him up with a Filipino bride, he falls head over heels in love with local tabang delivery girl Eun-ha, and starts showering her with gifts. Although Eun-ha is initially unimpressed, she is eventually won over by his kindhearted nature, and the two get married. The couple's marital bliss is short lived, however, as Eun-ha tests positive for HIV, and is then tracked down by her abusive ex-husband, who takes her away and forces her back into prostitution.



It was the ninth most successful domestic film of the year, selling more than three million tickets nationwide[3] and grossed US$17,530,124.[4]
