Sayuri asks for time. She then wishes that Joo-Hwan and herself will be born again as a married couple in their next life and proceeds to kill herself. Joo-Hwan runs to her room and grabs her body. Crying, he wishes that they will be born again and live as a married couple.

In the year 2012, Joo-Hwan and Sayuri become Soo-Nam (Shin Hyun-Joon) and Yeo-Ok (Kim Jung-Eun), who have been married for the past 12 years. Soo-Nam works as a hotel manager. He's thoughtful and dedicated at work, but patriarchal at home.Yeo-Ok becomes tired of her husband, demanding mother-in-law, lazy sister-in-law and her son who is now defiant. Finally, she declares that she is going on a strike as a housewife. Yeo-Ok especially wants her husband to respect her. She then tells her mother-in-law that they will be moving out of her home.

Yeo-Ok then goes to the apartment that they own and currently rent out. She plans to inform her tenant that they will be moving into the apartment. Unfortunately, no one is at the apartment to answer the door. Out of curiosity, Yeo-Ok tries her old security code and is able to enter the apartment. Yeo-Ok looks around to see the condition of the apartment. Suddenly, Yeo-Ok hears someone coming into the apartment and hides in the bathroom. She peeks out of the bathroom and sees her tenant Victoria (Han Chae-Ah) with a man. Yeo-Ok is then shocked to see that the man is her own husband Soo-Nam!. Soo-Nam and Victoria work at the same hotel and they are having an affair.

Ronaldo Real fun and worthy to watch. Actors and Actresses acted so well.....

Lily I liked it up to like episode 8 when things got too serious. I loved the comedy. But like most people I don't see why she went back to him...and left the other hottie behind. But i knew it would turn out like that, so i was mentally prepared for the retarded decision.

9dragon Their mistake was marriage without love and communication. He didn't initially love her and she didn't initially love him. He married her because she was pregnant and she married him because she needed a shoulder after her boyfriend left her. The marriage crumbled over the years. By average, women tend to exert more effort in marriages than men and men tend to be slow on the uptake. Over the years she grew to love him while he remain the same. They never had a strong foundation to begin with because they didn't marry out of love or communication, but necessity.

Cheating of course is not a right thing to do. It is a sign that the husband didn't know what he wanted. The whole him saving her life by donating his liver is an ultimate statement of how much she meant to him. Not everyone is willing to go through such procedure.

Human beings are sensitive creatures. It is much more easier to hate rather than forgive. It is much easier to remain the same than to change.

dadz .. . i agree with sheryl . . . . and totally offended of what bluerainz said . . . . . what's so dumb about reconciling with your husband who had a history of having an affair, ?but not to the extent that i experienced it myself, i just love the way ohlala couple ended. still, im just 17 years old to begin with . . . . . . . . . . . .and i am a filipino . . . .

devie ooh lala couple is the best, i love you forever kim jung eun ssi,, you are the best actress.. i'am very proud with you..

riza i love kim jung eun so much!!she is a good actress.,!!

sheryl i don't think that the ending was sad. It only shows that despite of her husbands fault, yeo ok has a fault too! and they end up of forgiving! what's wrong with that? and there are some relationship like that, not only in korea but also in philippines! haller!

bluerainz Thousands thumb down for the ending. Unrealistic! !! Even stupid and blind woman can makes better decision. Back to cheated hubby is the worst decision ever. He is not a good man at all. The way he treat his two woman's (wife and mistress) so horrible. Selfish man!! Why women in this show so dumb??? Sigh.... super bad ending ever!!

ren ohlala couple like it from episode 1 to episode 17 but what makes me sad is the ending.....is the worst ending ever........ missing you i hate that the leading lady did not end up with harry borrison( but i can understand because harry has a bad side) but this drama she choose to stay with his cheating husband rather some1 who loved her unconditionally......... bad ending ever in K-drama ever!

Candee With all due respect to you, bellabeula, Yeo-Ok is the victim here. And I definitely contradict with what you said about 'Yeo Ok also has a fault'. Do you know what you're saying? If you were on her shoes right now and your husband is acting like that - shouting at you, and commanding you to do this and that - won't you be crazy?

In addition to that, she served her husband and his family well from the last 10 years that they're together since she's a dutiful wife and loving mother to her son!

Well, if I were in her shoes right now, I will definitely hold a serious 'strike' on them too and also file a divorce right away! Like in a give and take thing - Yeo Ok always gives and gives - but then what happened? and what did her husband do? - he CHEATED!! Cheating is cheating - no matter how big or small it (mistake,as they call it) is, it doesn't change the fact that it is definitely CHEATING - with or without reasons.

But at some point I do agree with you when you said that, 'MEN love to be adored by women; as WOMEN like to be cared by men... both men and women should exert effort'.

susi Shin Hyun Joon and Han Chae Ah is the reason why I watch this series. Because I love them in Gaksital. But I sad with the ending. At least, give Victoria Kim a man like her bodyguard in Gaksital...

bellabeula Seriously.... all we think about is what is Soo nam fault... haven't we thought that Yeo Ok also has a fault... OK! granted Soo Nam's fault is cheating.. but the reason why he cheated is because Yeo Ok is not giving him proper care that a wife should give.. (I'm not saying that cheating can be right because of that reason).. but, seriously, guys, MEN love to be adored by women; as WOMEN like to be cared by men... it always takes two to tango... both men and women should exert effort I'm also a woman, by the way.

Alain Just watch the last episode and I thought it was good. The only thing I didn't like was that they jump ahead toward the end. Slow down. But other than that very funny when they switch body. Would have been more funny if they stay in each other body a little bit longer.

hebaraki i totally agree with Delena's comment. bad ending. stupid Yeo ok.i even didnt watch the last ep after watching preview. very disappointed. poor our Huynwoo. but i think he deserve to be loved by better wowan than Yeo ok.so i am not sad any more for him.love you Han Jae Suk oppa :)) ♥♥♥

Nessa I may be in the select few who loved the show and the ending. I didn't mind them getting back together, I like the two of them together. It's not unnatural for cheating spouses to get back together .I like that it went a route that I didn't expect, because you expect her to move on with the "good guy". However what I didn't like is that the last episode was so sped up. Other than that many tears, laughs and smiles were given to me by this show.

Knewbie These drama ending is really bad. It seems, it is ok in South Korea for husband to cheat on their wife and have a happy ending too, WTF. The lead male tend to over acting and shout whenever he talk on all his drama. I rated this drama 5 / 10.

delena It was such a waste of time watching this drama , what a stupid ending !!!! you know what , I think Soo Nam and yeo ok deserve each other . After all they both are self-centered . hyun woo is priceless and if yeo ok didn't bother to catch the treasure in her hands then it's her lost . Actually , I can gladly do the honors .. LOL love you Han Jae-Suk <3

J Loved the drama but the ending utterly disappointing me. Don't want to spoil anything but .. really .... felt too forced and sudden...still had my laughs throughout the series but ya ending blew it for me.

Joanna This is one drama where I wish the lead actress would go with the supporting lead actor instead of the lead actor. Kim Jung-Eun and Han Jae-Suk look so good together!

Gasenadi I'll never, EVER, watch another drama by this writer. I just might owe Him a return to my first addiction - books! Soo thoroughly and utterly disappointed, precisely because the acting and the comedy were superb. This drama reminds me of why I HATE telenovelas, same vapid, superficial, cheesy, chauvinist drivel at the end (unsuccessfully defended by the Family Values/Cheap Forgiveness Brigades).Stay for the comedy, bail at the first sign of angst later on, that's my recommendation (revised from previous posting)

shyluck21 the drama ends so fantastic! the couple back as couple again, Su Nam became a real to Na yeok and started a new life...

delena Go Soo-Nam deserves nothing but to left alone , for God's sake he CHEATED on her !!!!! yeo ok deserves better than that . hyun woo is the best for her and he is the one . I'm madly in love with him </3

blob I would love to see Na Yeo-Ok and Go Soo-Nam back as a couple again. They deserve a fresh new start. Forgiveness is the key and eventually Yeo-Ok will realize Soo-Nam's sincerity and devotion. They have better chemistry. Yeo-Ok is still hurting but Hyun-Woo doesn't make her completely happy. They have a good relationship in the past but it's not the same anymore. It's obvious when they kiss, Yeo-Ok felt awkward. She doesn't have the same level of caring and love for Hyun-Woo.

fersan what car does Ko Soo-Nam drive??! i love it. I need to know.

Ha I do hope that Hyun Woo and Na Yeo Yok could have their happy ending. He's overcome his cancer, and I hope she will too. Let's pray for them.

blob why only 16 episodes? this drama is sooo funny, catchy and entertaining. they should have extended it. i would rather watch this all over again rather than watch drama with longer episodes that bore me to death.

delena OMG I'm in love with charming couple na yeo ok and jang hyun woo so please please be together until the end . you are awesome and deserve happiness withe each other .

AainaaRoz This is the best korean drama I have ever watched. I don't care what you guys think, this is the best! END.

Juli This will be my hundred and somethingth drama that I have completed. It makes me laugh, cry, love, hate... It's awesome! After to the beautiful you and The Great doctor faith has ended I now look forward to this every Monday and Tuesday <3

Gnormous My first time watching a Korean drama. Narsha lured me in. Why can't American TV be this entertaining? I'm especially enjoying Jungeun and her ability to play a man in a woman's body trying to act "lady like" (that must take real talent!). I'm also loving the friendly (?) competition between Wolha and Mooshan. My only criticism is how often the characters on this show cry.

AjUxMishi Do i knw the casts? Hell no do i care? Hell no.. Im having so much fun watching this drama, i've never laugh so much...

Gasenadi Slapstick at its finest. Haven't laughed this hard and LONG in any kdrama ever! All the actors are doing a fantastic job and the plot keeps twisting and turning to keep the viewer addicted. I'm trying very hard not to obsess between episodes but it's hard. Definitely a must watch!

Violet Don't we all wish that our husband would experience our lives sometimes? And I am sure some husband would wish we wive can understand their days too. It's a fantasy story yet, it could ring true to our hearts. Great acting, thought alittle excessive on exaggeration but I guess it was necessiory for the comical value. Thanks for a good job!

Dragneel Reminds me of aloha. Oolala!

Dragneel It is very cool and amusing hope you can extended it up to /83:82:,88382$:'ooit09788589 episodes. (Computer code) xD

cindy i thought that the main girl character was jungah from afterschool LOL

Montana Awful exaggerated acing by Kim Jung Eun. Simply awful and unbearable.

Dina This is a must to watch !! So funny ! I'm not familiar with the casts but all of them are really good in acting ~ LOL ~ funny drama ~ Look forward to further esp~ currently show till esp 6 only ~

Felicia it's SO funny! It's better than the mushy high school type of love. It's mature but SO awesome!

ivory Well done! I like KJE's acting.

7aseman I'm already in love with this drama. Soul change is not very fresh but the story line in general is so funny. recommend it to everyone

peejay Watched 2 episodes and liking the series. Rare for me to laugh. Shin Hyun-Joon sooo good when he switched to Na Yeo-Ok. Looking forward to more episodes. Been sometime since I looked forward to a drama just like with A Gentleman's Dignity.

ChulMin♥BIG the teaser is funny but changing soul just like BIG not very new and fresh . But still watch it ^^ i love comedy

Sarah Don't like the cast, so i don't think i'll watch it... Sorry (~_~;)

Tinker Definitely will be watching this because of Han Chae Ah...loved her in Bridal Mask!
