A naive nice optimistic chaebol heiress ends up in the body of a suicidal woman who's lost hope after losing her adored. Our heiress has to deal not only with only having 49 days to return to her own body, but also dealing with her fiancee who is actually trying to destroy her and her father's business.

Well paced drama which feels like it has an over-arching storyline and not just padded out with episodes. The characters evolve and change during the serial. The last episode has some twists in it which may come as a surprise.

It has to be said that this drama chooses to have its cake and eat it. As it is light hearted I didn't mind, but for the sake of the drama things happen which feel like the script writers have forced in.

Great fun, I'll be re-watching this one. A drama which for me just works.
