The Light in Your Eyes is a heartwarming and emotional South Korean drama series that premiered on jTBC in early 2019. It stars Han Ji-min, Hye-ja Kim, and Nam Joo-hyuk in leading roles, and tells the story of a young woman who discovers the power of time-travel to her own future.

The show primarily revolves around Kim Hye-ja, an elderly woman who has the ability to time-travel to her own future. She lives a lonely life and works part-time at a banana milk factory. Hye-ja desires to fulfil her dream of becoming a news anchor, but she is unable to achieve her goal due to her age. She lives vicariously through her son, Jung-suk (played by Nam Joo-hyuk), who is a news anchor.

One day, a young woman named Lee Joon-ha (played by Han Ji-min) crosses Hye-ja's path. Joon-ha is a bright and ambitious girl with a passion for photography. She is struggling with her career, and has been living in the shadow of her best friend, who is a successful wedding photographer. Joon-ha is lost and doesn't know how to find her way in life.

But when Hye-ja reveals her ability to time-travel, Joon-ha sees an opportunity to turn her life around. Hye-ja shows Joon-ha her own future, where she is living her life as a 70-year-old woman. Through this experience, Joon-ha discovers the importance of cherishing every moment and making the most of her time. She starts to find joy in the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and taking photos for herself.

The show explores themes of time, aging, and family dynamics. It highlights the importance of living in the present moment and cherishing the time we have with our loved ones. It also touches on the idea that we are never too old to pursue our dreams, and that it is never too late to make a positive change in our lives.

One of the strengths of The Light in Your Eyes is its cast. Han Ji-min delivers a standout performance as Lee Joon-ha, bringing depth and vulnerability to her character. Hye-ja Kim is equally impressive as the time-traveling Kim Hye-ja, bringing a sense of maternal warmth and wisdom to the role. And Nam Joo-hyuk is charming as ever as the caring son, Jung-suk.

The show also benefits from its beautiful cinematography, which captures the natural beauty of the Korean countryside, and its nostalgic soundtrack, which adds to the show's emotional resonance.

Overall, The Light in Your Eyes is a moving and uplifting drama that is sure to tug at viewers' heartstrings. It is a beautiful reminder to cherish every moment and live life to the fullest.
