A handsome shopaholic who is the successor of a business empire becomes homeless after suffering from amnesia. Meanwhile, a country girl who lives a life that is worlds apart from the rich and famous encounters him in Seoul.

The two characters - one who is able to buy everything he wants and the other who is kind and selfless, interact and the romance that unfolds taught viewers the value of true love and that it is not something that can be bought.

The drama is full of obstacles such as amnesia, car accidents, the difference between the rich and poor and more. However, what made the drama so enjoyable was how the main couple fought against odds to be together while still managing to keep the drama lighthearted.

The super cute romance between the main leads is also worthy of a mention.

Watch this if you want a drama that is cute and funny but also full of life lessons to learn from.

Han Se Kye is a top actress who is also known as a troublemaker with many rumours surrounding her. To others, her life appears as a mystery, when in fact she is faced with a strange occurrence where she changes into a different body and new identity for one week every month.

She encounters Seo Do Jae, an executive at an airline company. He seems to have it all - perfect appearance, knowledge, and a good job but he has a secret too. He suffers from Prosopagnosia, the inability to recognise faces. However, he manages to hide this from the world by making the effort to remember people by their personalities.

The two meet and their lives begin to change.

Some complained that the drama progressed too slowly but we find that it was just the right pace for the drama to get their storyline out there as it is a pretty unique plot.

It started out being funny with the many ridiculous situations the main female lead gets herself into but as it progressed, viewers realised that the drama is so much more than just a romcom!

If you are looking to start on a drama that is of the romcom genre but still meaningful at the same time, this is the one to start watching.
