Please Come Back, Soon Ae


Huh Soon-ae (40):  Shim Hye Jin (Goong) 

Han Cho-eun (28):  Park Jin Hee (Stock Flower)

Jang Hyun-woo (32):  Lee Jae Hwang (Kitchen Maid)

Yoon Il-seok (Soon-ae's husband, 42): Yoon Da Hoon (Who's My Love/Guardian Angel)

The line of actors are superb...especially the main cast Shim Hye Jin and Park Jin Hee...both have strong character and both can act well. We're talking about body exchange, which has been done many times on the big screen, but rarely on Korean TV. The idea of Park Jin-Hee playing an Ajumma and Shim Hye-Jin going into sexy mode sounds just about right (the initial setup is the opposite, obviously).

'Please Come Back Soon-ae' is a story about a housewife who dedicated her whole life to her husband, son and mother in law...she is a strong character for a housewife...meanwhile Cho-eun is a dedicated beautiful and intelligent stewardess but at the same time having an affair with Captain Yoon Il-seok who is apparently Soon-ae husband.

Soon-ae had found out about the affair and Cho-eun has decided to let Soon-ae know that she is in love with Yoon Il-seok and ask Soon-ae to get divorce with him. 

Shocked with disbelief, Soon-ae climbs into Cho-eun's car, saying that she must confirm what she has heard with Il-seok first. Although Soon-ae tries her best to stay composed and keep a straight face, she feels her blood boil when Cho-eun taunts her by saying that there's no point in staying in a marriage without love or affection. When Il-seok calls Cho-eun and says, "Honey, where are you?" Soon-ae loses it and grabs for Cho-eun's hair. The two women go on pulling on each other's hair and crash the car. They are moved to a hospital where their souls become switched around... 

I don't really know why I bought this drama, the moment I saw Shim Hye Jin I just grab it and pay. My brother say's to me..."I thought you only look for a beautiful and handsome actor..." well I"m not...all that I'm looking for is a satisfaction and I always adore actors like her and now Park Jin Hee is on the list too... both of them makes you believe that they're switch with sudden character changing. I think this drama trying to let us see what really happened to this two type different of women out there, what housewife been trough and why some women just go out there and chase someone husband... not to criticize about women but to show us that life as a housewife is not as easy as we people think and living as a single and successful women also have their own trouble and of coz you can see that actually the one that to be blame is MEN...hehehe

"Please Come Back, Soon-Ae" has something for almost everybody — extramarital hanky-panky, two women who find themselves inhabiting each other's bodies, and plenty of dramatic action...
