Hi everyone! I would share with you my impressions about this film!
To be honest I was curious about this movie because of cast (mainly for Park Seo Joon) but I had no expectations of it. I've just watched it and I can tell you that this is a really intense and moving film. I really loved the actors' performances and the story was unusual because of topic but really really nice. read more And even if the movie lasts a little more then 2 hours, I have never fallen asleep or bored! LOL
You'll be surprised how many people will appear in it but there are many beautiful guys so... you have to watch it!!!

I just watched this movie in my local theater. I had no expectations. I only went so that I could see Lee Jin Wook's yumminess on a gigantic screen but I was pleasantly surprised. The movie is long, 2 hours and 7 minutes, but I didn't get bored with it. Han Hyo Joo was excellent in the role and you felt the pain she went through as she struggled with her unusual read more relationship. Although Jin Wook was only on screen for a few minutes, each Woo Jin before and after him played their part well. The changes felt seamless, though some you hated to see them go (Oh Ri On!!!).

Definitely catch it in theaters if you can., if only for all the handsome and pretty Woo Jins on the screen...

Both involve body swapping and finding romance along the way. Both movies have a great cast.
Recommended by GeaV
Both leading actresses give off the same vibe. Similar message and theme centred around the relationship between the two main characters- and how the man's 'condition' affects that relationship.

If you are a psychological/romance film fan, then you should definitely check out both.

    I feel like there's a lot of directions they could have gone with this premise, it's an interesting concept. They chose to go with a sweet feel-good romance in this film and it was executed well, very charming.

    Just finished it. It was so good, beautiful. ♥
    Yi Soo is the perfect example to explain pansexuality, she's just full of love.
    Just watch it if you haven't seen it yet.

    What a beautiful movie. I couldn't find really good subs anywhere but netflix. The ones I found on dramanice and gooddrama where very hit or miss.

    Although obviously unrealistic, this movie is unique. As the title conveys, one must love the beauty inside. :-) I liked it. 8/10
