I gave up on this drama quite early on - around 2 episodes in. I know that may sound hasty, but hear me out. There were a few things I really liked about the drama: Yeo Ok was an interesting character... Ok, make that one thing. I think the premise of the past life and the fantasy sides were alright, nothing too spectacular. However, the main problem for me is the husband. I personally watch romance comedies to root for the couple and watch their cute interaction scenes, which means it is so very important to have two intricately portrayed characters who I can support. On the other hand, the husband is so very ... despicable. He encompasses all the traits you don't want a husband to have: rude, loud, sexist and unfaithful. As a female, I can't see how Yeo Ok would ever take him back (and I'm pretty sure that's what the rest of the series would be leading up to though). I mean, she herself says that she can never take him back as she witnessed him cheating on her. So, due to the fact that I cannot support this couple, I see no point in wasting my time watching it in frustration. I've heard that the ending has been disappointing, as well as the lead up to that so I'm not regretting anything yet.

For anyone interested, the premise of this drama is that Yeo Ok finds out her husband has been unfaithful and goes on to divorce him. However, the love gods (one of whom I presume was a lover in one of her past lives, when she was a renowned geisha) decide to switch their souls so they can understand each other by living their lives.
