The Short Story of The Korean Film "Haeundae"

The Indonesian tsunami in 2004 caused heavy casualties unprecedented in history, and sent shock waves through the world wide. 

Man-shick(casted Seol Kyoung-ku), a native of Haeundae, has been sailing on the Indian Ocean at that time, and was swept away in the rapid tsunami. Man-shick lost the father of Yeon-hee(casted Ha Ji-won) by his mistake, so that he’s always been a deep one even if he loves Yeon-hee. One day, Man-shick decided to confess his love to Yeon-hee, and made preparations for making a wonderful proposal for Yeon-hee.

On the other hand, Dr. Kim Hui(casted Park Jung-hun), a geologist of the Institute of International Maritime Affairs in Korea, found the astonishing fact that the conditions of the east sea of Korea around Haeundae is similar to the condition before the Indonesian tsunami comes. 
Even though Dr. Kim Hui emphasized that Korea was no longer safety place from tsunami constantly, Disaster Management Agency of Korea asserted that there are no chances that a tsunami hit the peninsula both geologically and statistically. 
But the real situation of the east sea of Korea was changing every hour, and finally, as stated by Dr. Kim Hui, the tsunami is generated very large with fallen down of Tsushima island of Japan. At that time, in Haeundae, there are millions of crowds converged on the beach to cool off on the hot day, and the citizens of Busan had a peaceful typical life. 

And.. Giant tsunami reaches outward at high speed of 800km per hour toward Man-shick and Yeon-hee who was confirming their love each other.
