JYJ singer-actor Park Yoo Chun is a Joseon crown prince who accidentally travels to modern Seoul with his 3 buddies. He meets Han Ji Min, who looks just like someone he knew in the past. This wonderful drama of romance and intrigue interlaces the past and the future with extremely hilarious moments. A must see!
Anchorman Lee Jin Wook finds a way to travel back in time, up to 9 times, to solve the mystery of a family tragedy. Can he avenge his family and win back the love of reporter Jo Yoon Hee? Only time will tell. This drama affirms Lee Jin Wook's rise to leading man, and it's a must watch to appreciate why he is one of our favorite hot men.
Hallyu superstar Lee Min Ho is a warrior with awesome hair who travels from ancient Korea to the 21st century to find a doctor, played by Kim Hee Sun, to help the queen in his time. He actually kidnaps the doctor and later falls in love with her. Will the two lovers eventually unite in a time of their own? (All I can say is that Lee Min Ho always gets the girl.)
Yoon Eun Hye plays a news writer who meets her future self who wants to change the events of her present life. It means the current self needs to make a different decision between the two men who love her: Lee Dong Gun and Jung Yong Hwa (Heartstrings). That's definitely a tough choice. Who would you choose?
Forever handsome Song Seung Hun stars in this adaptation from Japanese manga series Jin. Song isn't just any doctor, but a neurosurgeon from the 21st century who enters Joseon Korea and finds himself surrounded by beautiful Park Min Young (Healer), Lee Bum Soo (Last), Lee So Yeon, and Kim Jae Joong. Of course he will use his modern medical knowledge to cure and impress Joseon-era patients. This is a fun drama to enjoy, but definitely suspend any disbelief.
A Joseon scholar travels forward in time and meets a 21st century actress. Ji Hyun Woo fell in love with Yoo In Na in the intriguing romantic drama on screen and in real life too. (Unfortunately the two actors have called it quits.) This is a great time-travel romance to watch, especially on a rainy day.
Lee Bo Young chose this thrilling drama after her stellar year of 2013, when she starred in I Hear Your Voice with Lee Jong Suk and then married long-time boyfriend Ji Sung. She plays a mother who goes back in time exactly 2 weeks before her daughter was kidnapped and murdered. It is nail-biting time as we race with her against the clock to solve the mystery and change the past.
Our hearts break for adorable Yoo Seung Ho, who is too late to confess his true feelings and watches his beloved marry someone else. He then goes back in time to high school for another chance to win Park Eun Bin's heart. Will he succeed?
