My Spring Days/ The Spring Day of My Life Episode 1 Review
Another new drama! If you are up for another story about a heart transplant recipient and guy whose former wife originally had that heart (because let’s face it, that story has been spun so many times before), this is for you. And while Soo Young’s wardrobe isn’t exactly saturated with the latest from the big fashion houses, she delivered fresh and exciting casual looks that are fitting for the remnants of summer.
Lee Bom Yi (Choi Soo Young) is a bubbly young lady who works as a dietitian at a hospital. Her work extends to shopping for the best ingredients so the hospital can cook the healthiest food for their patients.

She’s also headstrong. She cares for her patients who are not eating well. One old lady told her she doesn’t know what she (the old lady) is going through because she (Bom Yi) is young and healthy. At that, Bom Yi undoes the top buttons of her plaid shirt to show her huge chest scar – the scar she got when she underwent her heart surgery. It’s to prove she knows what it’s like to be helpless and sick.
Rumor has it that’s not really Soo Young’s chest they showed in this scene. SM even confirmed it’s not really hers but a stand-in’s.
The old lady requested for oxtail soup so Bom Yi went the extra mile and woke up early to get to this butcher’s shop. It’s purportedly one of the best in the country with a price that can’t be beaten. So they braved the long queue and waited for their time. When it’s their turn, they were presented with one problem: there’s a limit to how much meat they can buy.
The butcher manning the shop didn’t let them buy more. So Bom Yi and her friend disguised themselves and fell in line again. Only, their disguise didn’t work as the butcher still recognized them. Bom Yi pleaded once again to buy more of the meat as she is a dietitian and she needs it for her patients. The guy mistook her as a meat hoarder who sells to black markets for a higher price. The argument led to pushing and shoving and there it is – the scene above.
We’re in for a lot of casual, boyfriend jeans kind of style from Bom Yi. It’s actually quite refreshing as it gives us some ideas on how to dress up our jeans.
Get Lee Bom Yi’s Jacket (Choi Soo Young Jacket):
This is Kang Dong Wook, a doctor who works at the hospital where Bom Yi also works. Dong Wook is her fiancé.
The guy who got into an argument with Bom Yi earlier is Kang Dong Ha. He is a single dad raising two kids.
At the same airport, Bom Yi arrived safely. She’s all decked out in comfortable travel garb. There’s the ubiquitous jeans (heavily distressed this time), button down shirt, sneakers and a cardigan draped over her shoulders. It can’t get any more comfortable than that (except maybe sweats).
Bom Yi spots the two kids who are with Dong Ha earlier. The girl is Poo Reum and the boy is Ba Da. They were manning the ice cream station while the owner isn’t around and their dad is doing his reflection thing beside the ocean.
Bom Yi feels a deep emotion when she saw Poo Reum and Ba Da and that caused her to tear up. She saw Poo Reum with a blood stain in her pants and helped her cover it up. When Dong Ha saw her talking to his kids, he immediately became defensive. He recognizes her as the girl in the butcher shop.
Bom Yi’s shirt here is from Vanessa Bruno but I can’t find it online.

Turned out Bom Yi was there to pay respects to the person who donated her heart. This means she’s done a bit of digging about the identity of her donor. While propped on a stone with her food offerings, Dong Ha interrupted her one-sided conversation, intending to caution her about falling off. Bom Yi shrugged it off and cautiously went down. But she slipped and fell anyway.
Dong Ha saved her. When she came to, she swore she saw a girl in the water. They all thought she’s hallucinating so they took her to the doctor. Dong Ha offered her the use of his house so she can get out of her wet clothes but she misunderstood his intentions.
While checking out her reflection in a mirror, she saw a photo with Dong Wook in it.
Bom Yi wanted to go back but because of the strong waves, there are no more ferries that day. While looking around for a place to stay, she encounters Dong Ha again. Finally, he takes her to this house. Bom Yi saw Poo Reum and Ba Da again there. Turned out the place is their house.
Poo Reum gave her her mom’s dress to wear so she can dry up her wet clothes. It may be borrowed but the dress suited Bom Yi well.
This dress is from Valencia.
Bom Yi roamed around the house and came to a garden. She’s picking flowers when Dong Ha came back and saw her in his dead wife’s dress. This stopped him in his tracks.
