At thirty-one years old, Do Yong Shik (Yoon Shi Yoon) isn’t exactly at the top of his game. Despite having spent years studying for his civil service exam, he has yet to actually pass. Though convinced that this next time will be different, the fact remains that his years of studying have taken a toll not only on his mental health, but on his physical health as well. Too wrapped up in his studying to care much about anything else, Yong Shik has let himself go in more ways than one. Now sporting a rotund paunch and a severely decreased sex drive, Yong Shik is forced to admit that the time has come for him to seek professional help. Swallowing his pride, Yong Shik schedules an appointment with a urologist but is absolutely mortified when he walks into the office and finds his first love, Lee Ru Da (Hani) waiting for him. A talented doctor with a promising career ahead of her, Ru Da is clearly living the good life. Her only downfall is her annoyingly overconfident boyfriend, Do Ji Hyuk (Park Ki Woong), who spends his days droning on and on about his own awesomeness. Desperate to bring Ji Hyuk down a peg or two, Ru Da has spent a lot of time bragging about her amazing first love. But when she finds him sitting in her clinic office, she’s shocked to see just how much he’s changed. Embarrassed to have boasted so much about a man who is nothing like he used to be, Ru Da does the only thing she can think of to save face. Taking Yong Shik under her wing, she sets out on a seemingly impossible mission to help him raise his self-esteem. Will even her best efforts be enough to bring about such radical change? A story of first loves and second chances, “You Raise Me Up” is a 2021 romantic comedy drama directed by Kim Jang Han.
