i'm only on episode 2 so i can't give a full review. however, so far it's pretty entertaining and interesting. i can only hope this drama does not go the way of too many dramas before= starts out strong then fizzles out to end in mediocrity. my one complaint is that the musical numbers are NOT subtitled. i speak very little korean--only what i've picked up from my years of watching dramas--and i can only understand a few words here & there during the songs. it really detracts from the viewing experience not being able to fully understand what's going on at those times. this issue is more dramafever's fault than the drama's fault but i had to rate it one less star because of this drawback.
i really (really) REALLY love this drama. it's so funny & even though i'm not korean, i can totally identify with the throwback 90s vibe in all its glory. but am i the only one creeped out by tae woong liking shi won and asking her out!? it's not just that he's older than her (i'm married to someone 9 yrs older than me so i can understand that part) but the age difference coupled w/ the fact that they grew up together, they're like brother & sister, he was a teacher at her school, and he was with her sister (another girl younger than him & whom he tutored) kinda throws me off. ijs . . .
First 3 episodes & last 3 episodes are v. good. Middle parts are ok but gradually it got more & more frustrating to watch. I wanted to yell--will you just confess to her already! It seemed as if writers/producers had difficulties coming up w/ material for 16 episodes & it lost its freshness in the middle. It felt like they were just throwing in any excuse for KBH to time travel. Also, some of the transitions were awkward when KBH would come to the present & had to figure out how his time travels had affected his friends & him. BUT it was worth watching. It was fun to see how he'd tweaked the present each time he traveled. I adored the changes among the supporting cast. The cast generally acted well. YSH was a bit stiff for me at times though but did an ok job. The final episode is one of the best finales I've ever seen in a kdrama. It sends a powerful message about love that rob base & dj e-z rock told us long ago: "It takes two to make a thing go right."
