It’s arrival on January 3 marks the first premiere of 2022 and it should be an easy watch. Starring Rain, Kim Bum, UEE, and Son Na Eun, it’s actually well cast with the leads essaying each an unique and strong character charm from the previews and posters alone. Rain is the cold perfectionist doctor who ends up soul possessing warm-hearted Kim Bum’s rookie doctor after an accident, and it looks like the drama as the two male leads each with their own love lines with UEE and Son Na Eun respectively.
