Secret Garden (Hangul: 시크릿 가든; Hanja: 秘密花園; RR: Sikeurit Gadeun) is a 2010 South Korean television drama, starring Ha Ji-won, Hyun Bin, Yoon Sang-hyun, and Kim Sa-rang. It aired on Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) from November 13, 2010 to January 16, 2011 on Saturdays and Sundays at 22:00 for 20 episodes.
The drama tells the story of love story between Gil Ra-im (Ha Ji-won) and Kim Joo-won (Hyun Bin). Gil Ra-im is a poor but proud stunt woman who has supported herself since her father's death. Joo-won is an arrogant and eccentric CEO who maintains the image of seeming perfection. Their accidental meeting, when Joo-won mistakes Ra-im for actress Park Chae-rin, marks the beginning of a tense, bickering relationship, through which Joo-won tries to hide a growing attraction to Ra-im that both confuses and disturbs him. To complicate matters further, a strange sequence of events results in them swapping bodies, actually because Gil Ra-Im's father doing. However, even after though they swapped back their bodies, feelings continues to grow for both of them.
In the last few episodes, Ra-im gets into an accident while filming. She suffers severe brain damage and falls into a coma. Because of his deep love for Ra-im, Joo-won willingly swaps their bodies again, so that Ra-im (in Joo-won's body) can continue with her life while he takes her place in Ra-im's unconscious body. Taking pity on the couple, the ghost of Ra-im's father revives her and returns both her and Joo-won's souls into their proper bodies. It is revealed that it was he who caused their souls to swap bodies, in the hope that the two of them would come to love each other. Their love stronger than ever, Ra-im and Joo-won get married despite the disapproval of Joo-won's mother. The final episode shows that they have three beautiful children, as well as two matching sparkly jumpsuits.
