Someday is about four different people’s story about love.
Hana Yamaguchi (Bae Doo-Na) was a successful young cartoonist in Japan. Abandoned by her parents and brought up by her grandma, she was cold and aloof and did not believe in love which to her was only a simple biological response. When the elderly neighborhood street sweeper died, she discovered the affection between him and her neighbor which lasted 60 years. Hana could not understand this kind of love, so she decided to trace her neighbor’s footstep to Korea when she disappeared with her lover’s ashes.
In bringing her neighbor’s love story to fruition and published in print, the process changes the lives and outlook on love for four people.

Two people who have never seen each other, and who live on the opposite sides of the world from each other live and love in their own way, but from some point on they start to move towards the same dream and feel the same physiological feelings. Two people who have met by fate in a world full of mixed up fates. Now, the most amazing things, which no one could have ever thought of, start to unfold between the two.
