One Day Off Episode Recap:
Park Ha Kyung had travelled to Busan to spend her Saturday. She found the well-known restaurant Daesung Wheat Noodles to eat the speciality dish, Cold noodles. She goes to a bookstore and inquires about a comic book called The Dancing Kangaroo.
Ha Kyung runs across the man from the restaurant again in the bookshop while reading a book. She is disappointed that no one is writing about love. The romance and puppy love story has gone. She recalls the man she had seen earlier at the store.
Park Ha Kyung ran into that man at the Busan Film Festival again. It was their third encounter of the day which seemed like more than just a coincidence. He starts talking to her, and they watch a movie together. His name is Lee Chang Jin. They spend the evening talking with each other. Park Ha Kyung and Lee Chang Jin share similar views on food and romance stories. They plan to meet tomorrow to watch a movie like they did tonight. She was delighted to encounter a man like him in Busan.
Chang Jin failed to appear while Park Ha Kyung waited outside the theatre for him. He vanished again and stood her up. After a week in Seoul, Ha Kyung went to the Mangwon Wheat Noodles restaurant. Just after she left, Lee Chang Jin visited the shop. He sat in the same place and ordered the food as she did.
After a long time, Park Ha Kyung visited Sokcho for her Saturday trip. Everything has changed drastically since her last visit, and the place appears new. She remembers Sokcho from her past. It was the first location from where she embarked on her journey. Her memories of her childhood filled her with nostalgia.
After viewing the news, the elderly guy complains about changing world, and Ha Kyung listens to it at the bus stop. They point fingers at youth, politics, the economy, and other factors. She tries to defend it by saying that each generation has its problems and difficulties. He disagrees with her ideas and way of thinking. He accuses her of speaking rudely and disrespectfully back to elders.
