Likes: Such a good combination of melodrama and time-travel. I love time-travel, but oftentimes endings of this genre don’t always have that good closure. Not this one though. I know it feels very melodramatic in the beginning, but somehow in a good way. Keep watching until the end, and everything will make sense.
Beautiful love story. He fell in love with someone who traveled from the future and lived in a borrowed body. This is someone who fell in love with her personality. Well, that is something unusual. It goes beyond appearance and beyond time. I love the fact the he drew her in the past with her bubbly personality in mind. She might have been living in someone else’s body, but he was thinking of her as a different person already back then.
Overlapping timeline. Keep a good eye on the years. It can be confusing, but in the end it all makes sense. I just love how intricate the timeline was. The going back and forth time in an attempt to find a solution to the root problem. It was just fascinating!
The mysterious cassette recorder. I like the way they time-travel here. It’s through music and without surprise I get to like that song already. The cassette tape was a present from the shy Kwon Min Ju that made Nam Si Hyeon travel to the future and meet Han Ju Hee. Han Ju Hee got hold of the recorder with the tape in it and travelled to the past and in the end saved Kwon Min Ju. Yes, so it all went back to Kwon Min Ju.
The love triangle in the past. This is the hardest when a girl likes a guy who doesn’t like her back however his bestfriend likes her, but the girl is not interested in the bestfriend. Lots of unrequitted love here, but the friendship is strong though, so let’s stick to it.
We all want our own In Gyu. In reality, we would love to have someone who would sacrifice for us, who would be there for us always, who would accept us for being who we are, who would love us no matter what. In Gyu, the bestfriend, was such a likable character and I think Kang Hoon, kudos to him, really did him justice here
Brilliant top leads.
Ahn Hyo Seop as Koo Yeon Jun / Nam Si Hyeon – He was such a natural as the young Nam Si Hyeon. The older one got really gloomy understandably from all the sad pasts. As Koo Yeon Jun, he was somewhere in the middle, calm and loving. Overall, Ahn Hyo Seop did such a great job with his roles.
Jeon Yeo Bin as Han Jun Hee / Kwon Min Ju – She did amazing! She was able to show a big difference between the two characters. You couldn’t even tell it’s the same person. She got really into a big drama as Kwon Min Ju, lot’s of tears there, such a moving scene.
Favourite Quotes. “I have to die to fall in love again.”
“Whenever your heart calls for me, I will go to you.
Awesome cameo. Such a surprise to see Ro Woon (I’m watching his drama, Destined with You) as the love interest of the real Koo Yeon Jun, just before Nam Si Hyeon took over his body. When the two held hands, I was like, Oh my gosh 😲!
The Ending. As mentioned above, I love how it ended., how they closed that crazy time-travel cycle. And of course I love it that there was even an epilogue at the very end, and our two main characters meet again anew, unkowing of their past but the connection was still evident 😊❤️.
