The Episode Review
There was a lot going on during this show. The fact that Na-ra’s life was changed by her life as a young girl and became Yeo-jin was one of the biggest surprises in the episode. I’m sure that the single poor woman featured in the final episode might be linked by some means to the woman in question.
Given the way, Tae-Yong (the Seung-Cheon who is the real deal) has been affected due to the accident of Lee Cheol I’m sure that there will be a shift in the near future. I am curious if Tae-Yong made the right choices up to now in order to ensure that Seung-cheon’s family will be able to live in the house that he bought.
But, the next episodes are likely to be chaotic and we’re here to watch it. Ju-hee and Seung-Cheon might be able to meet given the possibility of switching again.
