Rania Samudra (Bunga Citra Lestari), is a 24 year old girl. When she was a kid, she had a little accident that left her unable to complete her schooling, but with her father's encouragement, she started traveling and sharing her experiences through her writing as the JilbabTraveler.

When her father got sick, Rania made the decision to return home. However, her father gave her yet another mission, which is to visit Baluran, a beautiful natural scenic site in East Java, where her father and mother fell in love....
Here in Baluran, Rania meets the handsome but very annoying Hyun Geun (Morgan Oey), a Korean travel photographer Korea. Hyun Geun was accompanied by his good friend Alvin (Ringgo Agus). When Rania overhears him commenting that there is nowhere in Indonesia as beautiful as Korea, she told them that it is because they have not seen the Ijen Crater. Rania then brought the two men to the Ijen Crater and being caught up in the beauty of nature and the moment, they missed the last van back to town. Hyun Geun and Alvin then invited her to stay with them at their homestay.

Early the next day, her friend and suitor Ilhan (Giring Ganesha) comes to retrieve her with the sad news that her father had already passed away....
With the feelings of regret, at not being able to be with her father at his last moments, Rania decided to stop traveling the world and stay home with her mother. She also ignored Hyun Geun who tried to approach her. Eventually, the disappointed Korean man went back to his native land. Meanwhile, Ilhan tries his best to press his suit...
With that, Tia and Eron, Rania's older siblings took the initiative to matchmake Rania with Ilhan. Ilhan's attentiveness and kindness makes Rania feel as if she should perhaps just accept his suit...

So what will happen next.. will she accept faithful and kind Ilhan's love or will she follow her heart and go after Hyun Geun.....
The movie is a nice love story but I think I love it even more because of all the magnificent scenes of places around the world especially in Indonesia and Korea...it is a breathtaking movie and definitely worth the watch...so go watch it while you can ...
Love Sparks in Korea is an Indonesian movie with some Korean words (obviously) and of course, English subtitles.. and I am so gonna watch it again... 
It will be aired in cinemas in about 2 weeks time, so do not miss out on it....
