Plot[edit]

Kim Soo-hyun is a mother whose young daughter Han Saet-byul gets kidnapped and murdered. Discovering a miraculous ability to go back in time exactly two weeks before the event, Soo-hyun is determined to expose the kidnapping plot and save her daughter before she dies all over again. Helping her is Ki Dong-chan, a former cop turned private investigator out to prove the innocence of his mentally challenged brother, who is falsely accused of murdering Dong-chan's ex-girlfriend. As Soo-hyun and Dong-chan race against the clock in the allotted 14 days, new light is shed on the crimes, and they uncover secrets far more treacherous than Soo-hyun could have ever imagined.[1]

Cast[edit]

Main characters[edit]

A successful TV writer for a current affairs program. She travels back in time to bring her dead child back to life.
He was once an outstanding police officer, who left the force after a certain incident. Now a private investigator, Dong-chan has a personal connection to the case and helps Soo-hyun when she goes back in time.
He is a human rights lawyer who is passionate about his work and is a loving husband to Soo-hyun and devoted father to Saet-byul. But he is also harboring a secret.

He is Soo-hyun's first love, and she suddenly comes to him out of nowhere and begs him to find the suspect who will kill her daughter in two weeks' time. Initially disbelieving, he gets sucked into the case and puts his career on the line to help her.
