You Are My Sunshine (Hangul: 너는 내 운명; RR: Neoneun nae unmyeong, literally: "You are my destiny") is a 2005 South Korean film written and directed by Park Jin-pyo, and starring Jeon Do-yeon.[1][2][3][4][5][6] It was released in Korea on 23 September 2005.[7]

The official English title is named after the 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 dabang 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/AIDS, and is then tracked down by her abusive ex-husband, who takes her away and forces her back into prostitution.



You Are My Sunshine was the ninth most successful domestic film of the year, selling 3,051,134 tickets nationwide,[8] and grossing US$17,530,124.[9] It also became the best-selling Korean melodrama film of all time, before its record was surpassed by Maundy Thursday a year later.
