In episode 8 of the series aired on the 19 (Sat.) this month, “Ha Norah”, a woman in her late thirties who has a 20-year-old son, went back to the age of twenty, to enjoy her lost youth once again.

In episode 8, “Norah” dances for her college’s festival instead of another student who got her leg hurts, at the suggestion of “Cha Hyun-Suk” (acted by Lee Sang–Yoon), to fully display her dream and talent that had been hidden so far. In episode 9 to be aired tomorrow, “Norah” experiences the joy and sorrow at the same time on the stage, while “Hyun-Suk” is watching her performance with affection. “Norah”’s husband “Kim Woo-Cheol” who had demanded divorce to “Norah” gets reminded of her young and beautiful days looking at her dance on the stage, hinting on the conflict to develop between “Kim Woo-Cheol” and “Cha Hyun-Suk”.
