Summary: 2 souls were having unfinished business in the world of the living and were granted to come back in two different bodies. The salesperson Kim Young Soo came back as a handsome guy who eventually became the boss of the place where he used to work. On the other hand, Han Gi Tak who used to be a tough guy came back as beautiful woman.

Likes: It fits the 2 genres perfectly, a comedy and a melodrama which is just the right mixture of fun and sadness.
Though I’m not a big fan of Rain’s acting, it’s hard to ignore his presence. This guy is tall, buffed and sexy! Since he’s tall, everyone else is tall even the ladies…
The ladies woohooo! I’ve never seen such high concentration of talented and gorgeous ladies in one drama. Let’s start with…
Oh Yeon Seo as Han Hong Nan – OYS is a doll! Just perfect! She’s tall, with a vavavoom body and a very pretty face. In fact it was hard to see her as a guy (as her role is a guy who came back from the dead). Nevertheless, she did well with her tough, gangster moves and voice.
Lee Ha Nui as Song Yi Yeon – I love this lady, she’s just beautiful and talented. Possesses a perfect body like OYS and has a natural talent for crying. Her role as a depressed had-been actress suits her well.
Lee Min Jung as Shin Da Hye – everyone will melt with her puppy-eyes. Our third leading lady has the simple and modest look but also beautiful and talented like the 2 mentioned above.
And I praise all the ladies above for their catwalk skills!
There were so many funny moments in the show but what I like best is when there’s one, this song plays… Feel Alive by Topp Dogg! It has this western feel to it and I always associate it to the good guys or the ladies winning.
It’s fun watching every episode ends with a short scene where the real Lee Hae Joon (played by Rain) and his pilot got stranded in an island after their plane crashed.
Finding out who the real sister of Han Gi Tak was a great twist.
Loved that short flashback in the end where Da Hye and Kim Young Soo met when they were younger. Sad fate for everyone but it’s good to know our 2 souls had a good closure.
Dislikes: Overused SBS building as a set for dramas. It’s hard not to recognize and ignore those corridors. Seen them a lot before.
I really like those massage chairs and I wish I will have one soon but bending the story of a drama to showcase these products or any product in general is just lame. At least make it not too obvious!
I was desperately hoping for a romantic happy ending. I shouldn’t have had.
