He momentarily visits his own body but returns back to Yoon Jaes body, shocking both Da Ran and himself.

Maybe the poor editing and the abrupt tonal shifts detracted from my enjoyment of the episode, but it left me a little bored, even during the hot romantic parts with Kyung Joon and Da Ran. The beginning of the episode was a little jarring to start with, from Kyung Joons momentous confession that he would stop liking Da Ran. Not only did it suddenly shift to a comedic tone with Ma Ris arrival, belittling his revelation, but it also was neglected throughout the episode as the relationship dynamic remained the same between Da Ran and Kyung Joon. Bringing me to another weakness in terms of plot. The writers have a lot to work with when it comes to the soul switching mystery, Yoon Jaes mystery affair with Se Young (Jang Hee Jin), the romance, and the growing up, but the plot is being pulled down and dragged by with Kyung Joon asking Da Ran to marry him and Da Ran trying to deny her feelings. And although I love how Da Ran is finally maturing and gaining confidence by getting back together with Yoon Jae, Im a little confused about where this is going to lead us again. Ultimately, even the final moment of soul switching just left me scratching my head. Yes, it seems like theyre getting closer to the moment of soul switching, but it doesnt help us or the characters get closer to solving the mystery on their own. I was so excited that they would be returning to their bodies, especially right after the marriage, so I was a little disappointed.
But, I still like how the relationship between Kyung Joon and Da Ran is going, despite it being repetitive. Im quite interested in how the angel story will come into play with reality. Since Yoon Jae saved Kyung Joon, Im interested in who Kyung Joon will save. I hope that it wont be literal like Kyung Joon saving Da Ran from an oncoming car, but more metaphorical. Because we can see how both help each other grow as Da Ran gains confidence and Kyung Joon gains the comfort and maturity he needs. And Im going to guess that Kyung Joon and Yoon Jae are brothers or half-brothers. I would say half-brothers as they share the same father, but the mothers reaction towards Kyung Joon is way too nice if youre going to consider that your husband had another child with a different woman.
And although Ma Ris character has been annoying me, heres some eye candy for miss A fans.
