Heard of the word “doppelganger”? It means a person who looks exactly like you.
It seems like a fashion for Korean dramas to have a plot of two characters acting one role, meaning, one character would be offered a life to live another character’s life.
What life would you choose to live when you were given such chance? Can you be sharing your life with somebody else?
