They could only guide each other and assist each other in covering up, and they gradually fell in love in the process. The Day of Becoming You appears to be a cliched soul exchange plot, but the story is not cliche at all. It's also very interesting, which causes a lot of conflict in the entertainment industry. 

The point is, that Yu Sheng Sheng is really great at performing. The souls were swapped to create the heroine and the different shy looks made drama fans laugh out loud.
