I only started liking Ha Ji Won when I watched her in Family Outing while I loved Hyun Bin in My Name is Kim Sam Soon. Looking forward to them together for the first time!
Review: This drama is very disappointing to me. I love both Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won, they have sizzling chemistry but the story was so dragging I actually fast forwarded a lot of parts. For a stuntwoman, she kicks ass but other than that, she is so boring I dont know why Joo Won likes her so much (just because she defies him??). Very little story development, it just got stuck with their relationship, and I don’t know what’s the point of the body swapping. I do love the sit up scene — very hot!
