The Plot

Kim Joo-Won runs their family-owned luxurious Roel Department store. He is young, rich, smart and good-looking. He seems to be perfect.

Oscar is a popular popstar around Asia, but he doesn't have musical talent. He is also a womanizer. Joo-Wan and Oska are also cousins and highly competitive towards each other.

On a request by Oscar, Joo-Won goes to pick up actress Park Chae-Rin from a shooting set. Joo-Wan mistakes Gil Ra-Im -- a stuntwoman whose body is the object of envy amongst the top actresses -- for Park Chae-Rim and takes Ra-Im to a hotel. Oscar made the request in an attempt to prevent Park Chae-Rin from revealing their relationship to the press. At the hotel, Joo-Wan discovers that the woman he picked is not actress Park Chae-Rim but a stunt woman. During this time, Joo-Wan starts to experiece strong feelings for the feisty stunt woman, even though she isn't his type. Joo-Wan seeks out beautiful woman who comes from wealthy backgrounds so eventually she can support him.

One day, in Jeju island Ra-im and Joo-wan came across a mysterious restaurant in the woods named "Secret Garden". Even more strange, the owner of "Secret Garden" seems to know them. The owner gives them bottles of wine. That night, Joo-Wan and Ha-Lim drank the bottles of wine separately. The next morning, they discovered that their bodies have been exchanged!
