Born and raised in Busan – Korea, Kim Sun Ja (Youn Yuh Jung) also experienced the suffering experienced by Koreans during the Japanese colonial period.
Kim Sun Ja (Kim Min Ha) falls in love with Koh Han Su (Lee Min Ho), a Korean man who lives in Osaka, Japan, and is known as a fish trader and broker who regularly visits Busan.
When she was pregnant, Kim Sun Ja found out that Koh Han Su had married another woman. This fact broke Sun Ja’s heart into pieces.
She is saved by a priest at the church named Baek Isak (Noh Sang Hyun) who is willing to marry her. The new couple then moved to Japan, where Sun Ja gave birth to their child.
Life as a Korean in Japan at that time was not easy. Sometimes they have to face humiliation and discrimination in the struggle for survival.
