Heo Soon-Ae (Shim Hye-Jin) is a 40-year-old homemaker, devoted to her pilot husband Yoon Il-Seok (Yoon Da-Hoon), their son, and Il-Seok’s mother who lives with them. But one-day, Soon-Ae finds out her husband has been cheating on her with a 28-year-old flight attendant Han Cho-Eun (Park Jin-Hee). The news shocks Soon-Ae and she cannot believe it, but the mistress, Cho-Eun, wants to convince Soon-Ae, because she wants Soon-Ae to divorce Il-Seok so he can finally be with her. So the two get in the car together and drive towards the airport where Il-Seok is due to arrive from his flight; the plan is to show up before Il-Seok together and ask him on the spot who he wants to be with. But their plan turns supernatural when the two get into an accident that has them switched; so Soon-Ae is now trapped in Cho-Eun’s body, and vice versa. Since they can’t seem to switch back, the two must learn to live in each other’s body, as each other, and things get really complicated when the real Cho-Eun’s ex-boyfriend, Hyeon-Woo (Lee Jae-Hwang), tries to win Cho-Eun back.
For those looking for light-hearted entertainment with nonstop fun, this is the drama to watch! Park Jin-Hee’s portrayal of a 40-year-old woman trapped in a 28-year-old’s body is truly hilarious. Her transformation from a feminine and graceful woman to a dancing and cussing middle-aged woman is too juicy to miss. The rest of the cast is just as fun to watch, especially Yoon Da-Hoon, who plays the cheating husband. Yoon has some of the funniest facial expressions and distortions one can witness. It is clear from their on-screen chemistry that the cast had so much fun making this drama, and those who watch this will be tickled for hours, if you can suspend any objection to the unrealistic plot line, that is. Don’t expect any heart-twisting romance in here, as the love story is more like an after-thought, but there is plenty of drama among Cho-Eun and Soon-Ae’s family, friends, and colleagues, and this is great fun to watch and good entertainment for the whole family.
