Originally written by Hitonari Tsuj, starring Miho Nakayama, Tuji’s wife, “Sayonara Itsuka” was produced by a Korean company with producer Katharine Kim and director John H Lee.

“Sayonara Itsuka” has been released in Japan in January this year, and became a very popular film.

Higashigaito Yutaka (Hidetoshi Nishijima) is transferred to the Bangkok branch of Eastern Airlines.

In three months, he will marry Michiko (Yuriko Ishida), a relative of the airline’s founder, and though he doesn’t love her, he knows he could be CEO one day if they wed.

In Thailand, Yutaka meets a girl, (Miho Nakayama) Toko, at a bar and is instantly drawn to her. His relationship with her only intensifies as the wedding date approaches but eventually decides to break up with her to proceed with his wedding.

Twenty-five years later, they bump into each other and realize their love for each other remains, but reality pulls them apart once again.

Miho Nakayama became a very popular actress in Korea after she starred in “Love Letter”  released in Korea in 1999.
