who are u 2008

starring Yoon Kye Sang as Cha Seung Hyo and Go Ah Ra as Son Young In, Kang Nam Gil as Son Il Gun.

Seung Hyo was supposed to die after a car accident which many people hoped for. However, Young In’s father begs the grim reaper to give him more time. Therefore, he is allowed to use Seung Hyo’s body. It is very funny whenever he changes to II Gun. It is like complete change in character in 1s. He always ends up doing funny thing which makes people misunderstand and sometimes meets up with the woman he loves when he was alive, causing even more misunderstandings. It is hilarious to watch Seung Hyo’s facial expression after 3 hours when he suddenly finds himself in weird costumes or at wrong places. II Gun seems like an onlooker, at the same time indirectly helping Seung Hyo and Young In get together (much to II Gun’s disgust at first). Without II Gun, Seung Hyo would have passed away as he was severely injured and did not feel any purpose in being alive. It is funny that his secretary even tries to ward off ghosts in his office after noticing his strange behaviour (including being good to her).

Although II Gun and Young In care for each other, they just do not express it or keep finding fault in the other. As Seung Hyo, II Gun even goes to his daughter’s graduation ceremony but obviously Young In does not recognise him. The only thing familiar is the chant he says before they eat which he usually says with his daughter. II Gun suddenly became rich due to his paintings right before he dies, leading to him being murdered. They would not have believed that they would have such a day!
