Synopsis
Yoon Hye-chan is a twenty-nine-year-old who wants to divorce her husband, Kang Sang-young (Ryu Soo Young), a popular actor. After Hye Chan gets to an accident, her mind reverts to that of a silly, eighteen-year-old teenage girl, who is reliving her high school days.
In the past Hye-chan despised Kang Bong-man, a popular boy at her school, thinking he is shallow. But little did she know that Kang Bong-man would become an actor one day, change his name to Kang Sang-young and be her future husband. For Sang-young, seeing his wife revert to their high school days changes him, and he strives to mend their shattered marriage. The only obstacle is Shin Ji-young, an actress, who has fallen in love with Sang-young.

Rating: A (Excellent)
Rewatch Factor: Medium
Comment: This is a drama that takes a unique look at youth, marriage, and love. It is about reliving the past and rediscovering love. The story is refreshing and the main characters are lovable. It has hilarious, endearing and bittersweet moments as two people slowly find themselves falling in love with each other once again. I love the chemistry between Park Sun Young and Ryu Soo Young. This drama really showed what a fine actor and actress those two are. "18 vs. 29" is a drama for those who are eternally optimist and those who aren't. You will laugh and you will cry, but most of all you will leave feeling satisfy.
