A drama about spiritual powers and twisted fates


Set in the land of Dae-ho, a country that does not exist in history or on maps, Return revolves around young characters whose fates are tampered with through the spiritual arts. 

Due to a type of magic called the “remembrance magic”, the souls of the main characters are switched, and their lives get turned upside down.
