Great chemistry and acting, amazing plot
4 June 2020 | by annalicnpSee all my reviews

After my first k-drama experience with "Crashing Landing on You", I found this underrated TV series on Netflix. I was first attracted by the time travel element and was not particularly impressed by the male actor, Kim Nam Gil, who ended up being my FAVOURITE actor and singer. He is the type of guy you have to grow into. He may not be your traditional good-looking guy on first look but his charming face and unpretentious character just suck you in bit by bit.

The chemistry between the two Kim(s) is excellent and the storyline about how their destinies are intertwined is very sweet. A destined couple helps each other heal and become a better version of him/her. Kim Ah Joong's acting skill is undeniably exquisite and she's very pretty too. They just look great together.

The medical scene is well executed and the songs "Always" and "Not Gonna Wait" are my favourites too.

All in all, this is an amazing romantic story about time travel that is very comforting and therapeutic, especially at this crazy lock-down period.

Don't miss this hidden gem.

I don't even remember how many times I've watched it.

Just bring me laughter and tears every time I watch it.

Give it a try; I don't think you'll be disappointed.
