Rumor or Truth? Let’s Switch Souls!

The setting for “Branding in Seonsu-dong” is Seonsu-dong district, the center of Seoul’s marketing and branding world. (A dong, or neighborhood, of Seongdong-gu in Seoul.) The storyline involves two main characters: Kang Na-eon, a successful tough no-nonsense team leader at a marketing firm, and So Eun-ho, a “righteous” intern at the same marketing firm.

Kang Na-eon asked the CEO of XU Beauty directly if there was something to the rumors about the company using animals. Kang Na-eon already had a reputation for being successful. The CEO responded by asking her if she wanted to continue being recognized as the best in her field.

Kang Na-eon did not blindly accept his response because he didn’t exactly answer her question. She took note that instead, the CEO dangled a “carrot” in front of her, hoping she would bite.

Kang Na-eon challenges So Eun-ho to find proof that the XU Beauty rumors were facts. He finds a place in the factory where the animals used for testing are hidden. The CEO had dangled a “carrot” in front of her. Oh, the irony! Considering that the animals So Eun-ho discovered were rabbits.

Kang Na-eon is currently not in a relationship. But despite her determination to stay independent, she gets entangled with So Eun-ho. If only she had resisted. But one kiss changed everything.

No, she didn’t fall madly in love. The two swapped souls after their first kiss. The soul of Kang Na-eon was now in the body of the righteous intern, So Eun-ho. Kang Na-eon and So Eun-ho lived by completely different values. Her world has been turned upside down. But is that a good thing?
