Go Back Spouses find a 2-in-1 fountain of youth and time portal

In a last-minute promo blitz, time-travel romance drama Go Back Spouses has released posters, stills, and a new teaser. Based on a webtoon called Let’s Do It One More Time, this new comedy drama is centered around a same-age married couple that fights all day—so much, in fact, that they’ve already visited the courtroom for a divorce.

Jang Nara (Fated To Love You) and Sohn Ho-joon (Blow Breeze) star as the titular couple who go back in time to their twenties when they first fell in love. They still have memories of hardship from their 18 years of marriage, but in their twenty-year-old bodies and surrounded by optimistic friends, unexplored prospects and opportunities, will these two make the same choice to fall in love with each other again?

The poster shows a cutesy proposal happening atop a wedding cake, but down below, it’s a complete reversal with Jang Nara strangling Sohn Ho-joon by his necktie. The poster reads: “The 38-year-old feuding couple goes back in time to their twenties: Past nature x life changes.” The second couple poster down below has the same copy on it, and also shows two opposing scenes: Jang Nara and Sohn Ho-joon are the picture of first love in the top image, but on the bottom, she’s wielding her bouquet like a weapon against him.

And then the group poster features the good ol’ college friends gathered together on the grass, since college is where they’ll all reunite. The stills follow suit and evoke a nostalgic ’90s vibe, with retro hair and vintage clothes worn by our characters when they were in their twenties.

The supporting cast includes Heo Jung-min (Introverted Boss) and Han Bo-reum, who play the “direct couple,” who’re complete opposites. His character is narrow-minded, while she is every girl’s free-spirited female crush. She’s a part of the Beauty Trio, a tight-knit group of friends who are known to be the prettiest girls on campus; the two are shown in the group poster with her gripping his head in a headlock on the left. Jo Hye-jung (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju) plays a outwardly cold introverted girl, who is deemed the “visual” of the Beauty Trio and most sought after by the boys. Lee Yi-kyung (Mirror of the Witch) will be a fun-loving college student, and rival love interests Jang Ki-yong (The Liar and His Lover) and Go Bo-kyul (Seven Day Queen) are aloof and sophisticated.

The new teaser is very similar to the first, with just a few new scene additions. Sohn Ho-joon is a weary and cowardly breadwinner, but when he goes back in time, he turns into a passionate vigorous young man. Similarly, Jang Nara in the present is a nagging housewife and baby mama who has lost all her self-respect, but then a supernatural earthquake transports them back into their past lives in 1999, and she turns back into her former self, the Campus Queen and part of the Beauty Trio.

Even though Jang Nara and Sohn Ho-joon are both in their younger bodies, it’s clear that they’re still in the ajusshi/ajumma mindset as Sohn Ho-joon chides a female professor for her underskirt showing, and calls her young lady. Likewise, Jang Nara is completely unabashed (like most ajummas about everything) at not knowing her homework topic, even though she gets a failing grade. Both Jang Nara and Sohn Ho-joon revel in their miraculously re-found youth, and the teaser ends with Sohn Ho-joon praying: “Let’s never wake up from this dream.”

KBS’s Friday-Saturday drama Go Back Spouses will premiere on October 13.

I think more important than the end is the journey right? and they will be willing to lose the journey because of the end?
It will be interest to see...

Only Jang Nara can pull off being convincing both as a 38-year old and a 20-year old.

Both Jang Nara and Sohn Ho-joon look so convincing playing their college selfs. I also expect another satisfactory performance from Lee Yi-kyung. Love them all.
By the way, is one of the Beauty Trio the actress who'd played Park Seo-joon's girlfriend in " I Summon You Gold "?

I like what they are showing us so far. Hope for another hit for JNR after her not-very-good One More Happy Ending, and a much more interesting character for SHJ after that awful Blow Breeze.

Aww they couldn't be happier in 1999, I wanna go back too! I can totally see how they want to pull off this particular time travel with this couple. It's gonna be hilarious seeing them act different around each other than they did back then. Imagine the hijinks!

Am I the only one who is pondering whether the baby stays in present timeline when they go back and if they have their memories with them, how come they don´t worry?

Jang Nara must be ordering clones of herself from the past because she keeps looking the same! I she a cyborg?

Yes, that's something I wonder about too. I doubt the story will leave out the kid so easily, so let's see. BTW I also read that the lead lady's story with her mom will pull at our heartstrings...it makes me curious about what happened
