the light in your eyes

The drama is about a 25-year-old woman who suddenly found herself becoming a 70-year-old woman because of a magic watch—Han Ji Min, who plays the younger version of Kim Hye Ja. Watching this drama will make you cry all the time because the dialogues in this drama are creating meaningful. It was touchy so much! Not only that, but this drama is also entertaining with its funny scenes. Imagine if you were a woman who was 25 years ago having to live with family and friends your age with a body like that. Kim Hye Ja is such a millennial grandmother in this drama, and that’s the most exciting part for most people.

[SPOILERS] Hye Ja’s mom’s (Lee Jung Eun) salon is falling apart, even as Mom is working hard to support the family, and Dad (Ahn Nae Sang) doesn’t look like he makes much, driving his taxi. And yet, they do whatever they can to support Hye Ja’s dream of becoming a news anchor. That is so earthy and sweet. Hye Ja taking on voice work for porn movies is such a huge wake-up call. It gives her the pleasure of giving money to her parents, but it devastates her on the inside. How poignant, and also, how true to life.
