A young man and his mother’s search for happiness leads them to Korea. Carl Laker (Ji Chang Wook), whose Korean name is Dong Hae, comes to Korea with his mother, Anna Laker (Do Ji Won), to compete in a short track speed skating competition as a representative of the United States. Anna is a Korean American adoptee who met a Korean man named James while he was studying in New York. He promised to come back for Anna but never did and never knew that Anna became pregnant with his child. Anna also has the mental capacity of a 9-year-old, the result of a near drowning during a severe storm. When Carl came to Korea to compete, he also wanted to use the trip to see his Korean girlfriend, Sae Hwa (Park Jung Ah), whom he intended to marry, and to search for his birth father. But Sae Hwa tells Carl that she has no intention of marrying him because of his mother. When Anna wants to stay in Korea to find James, Carl and Anna move into the home of Lee Bong Yi (Oh Ji Eun), an aspiring chef, and her kind family. Will Carl and Anna be able to find the happiness they seek with the help of Bong Yi and her family? “Smile, Dong Hae” is a 2010 South Korean drama series directed by Kim Myung Wook.
