I really enjoyed this film.  I have actually seen the Japanese drama version starring Tachi Hiroshi as the father and Aragaki Yui as the daughter before.   It is worth a view for its comedy and poignancy.

This film is about a warring father and daughter who ended up swapping bodies.

Do Yeon used to idolise her father, in fact when she was very little she declared that she was going to marry her father one day.

But when puberty hits, suddenly her father could do no right.

She had stopped talking to him without shouting or moaning.

One day they heard from the mother that grandad had a turn.

Do Yeon and her father, Song Tae rushed to the grandad’s house when he found him recovered.

The mom decided to stay with grandad so Do Yeon had to come home with her father.

They had an argument along the way.  Under an aged Gingko tree, they argued how hard their respective life was.  The father said I used you could be me and see what I had to do to earn and income to provide for you and your mother.

Do Yeon screamed that she wishes that her dad becomes her and see how hard the life of a student was.

Suddenly the grandad was there under the gingko tree and started telling them about the legend of the gingko tree that it can grant wishes such as body swap.

The father and daughter left before the grandad finished what he was saying.

They continued arguing in the car.  Song Tae got distracted he crashed.

When they woke up, they were both in the hospital feeling completely disorientated.

They then both realised that they had swapped bodies.

They decided not to tell wife/mom.

Song Tae called grandad to ask about the gingko tree.

The grandad said that the wish will last for seven days and then everything will return to normal.

So for seven days, they lived each other’s life.  They learned to appreciate what each other is going through.

It was a pretty good movie and it makes you appreciate your father and that you must not ignore what they say despite knowing that it was not how it should be.  There are hidden rules that must be followed to make a complicated life less complicated.

Love the film and the male lead, Yoon Je Moon is a very charismatic actor.  He owns all the scenes that he was in.  He is such a good actor.  Of course, Jung So Min is brilliant as always.
