Let's get the elephant in the room out of the way -- Tomorrow With You is a slow burner. It is not an action packed, quick paced drama. This was not an issue for me, nor did it make the drama boring at all. I think this quality of the drama pairs well with the fact that the drama circles around the concept of living in the moment, enjoying life for what read more is, and reveling in the little things. It does have a more serious and melancholic vibe, although there are many comical and lighthearted moments sprinkled into each episode.

The plot of the drama is very meaningful and emotional. It deals with the subject of fate and destiny, and how sometimes there are things that are inevitable. There will be moments of frustration and annoyance that despite knowing the future, things still go a certain way, but it doesn't bog down the drama. The drama embraces the fact that some people tend to make the same kind of choices or refuse to change, but the characters and the plot adapt and keep the story rolling. In the end, it is a great reminder to be present, enjoy life's ups and downs, and to always be grateful, and all those other feel good life lessons. The drama also tackles issues like love and marriage, corporate greed and crime, family relationships, friendship and frenemies, and life's regret. Overall, I felt that the story had the appropriate pace and unfolded in accordance with it's vision and purpose.

The characters developed beautifully and I felt that as an audience member, I really got to know them and accept them for all their strengths and weaknesses. The changes in the characters were gradual and reflective of what they were going through in the story. The actors did a great job in their respective roles, and were really effective in conveying deep emotions in dramatic scenes, as well as comedy in those lighthearted moments. I also love how it didn't shy away from kisses and love scenes (though still very demure). The couples in the drama had electrifying chemistry with each other, and even the whole group as friends really had a natural feel to it.

The music was composed of more emotional slow songs and ballads. Understandable given the context of the drama, but I still really enjoyed them.

It's a great (re)watch and always gave me something to look forward to on the weekends. I hope people out there decide to watch it or at least give it a try.

Firstly, we need to address first is that this is a melodrama, and in that sense the drama was done perfectly. The color scheme was muted, the OST fit the mood, and the pacing was quite slow which melodramas seem to be known for. There were some scenes towards the end where that raw desperation was conveyed so well that it elicited a lot of emotions from me (aka I couldn't handle read more the feels). That said, the middle did drag a little bit, but not to the point where I lost interest. Everything was purposeful, and you can tell as the story progresses.

The story was quite new in the KDrama world, which I appreciated. And where else can you see the leads get married by the third episode? The first half of the drama was quite light, mostly centered on their romance while the second half had lots of angst and suspense. What this drama did well was weave the past, the present, and the future in which he traveled to into a clear and coherent storyline. Most of the show is actually foreshadowing, and finally in the last few episodes are the viewers exposed to what actually happened. It did build up suspense and intrigue, as you had no idea what would happen. It was unpredictable, but by doing that they lost a few people (and provoked lots of fan theories), but I promise if you stick with it, everything will build up to a satisfying end.

The acting was done really well on Lee Je Hoon's part. This was my first time watching any work of his and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't particularly like Shin Min Ah's character, as sometimes I felt like she was unreasonable. Their chemistry was off the charts though, and perhaps because they were married early on in the series, we're given a ton of fanservice (aka steamy scenes). At first I was skeptical because the circumstances of which he married her wasn't the best, but soon you could really believe that they're in love. There isn't a moment where the music fades and the camera pans over their face in slow motion that tells you they've fallen for each other, but trust me you'll know.

I really loved the music. I think there were only about three main OSTs , significantly less than that of other dramas, but all of them fit the drama so well. They also played some beautiful piano instrumental tracks pretty often, which created a sort of gloomy mood befitting the storyline.

While I may not watch the entire drama over again, I would definitely rewatch some of the scenes.
Overall, I loved the way the story was told, despite the pace. I have to mention the color scheme again, because it was really genius and beautiful. Right off the bat, it helps you get into the solemn mood constantly reminding you of the overarching plot despite the cheesy happy scenes. I would recommend this drama for those who don't mind a slower storyline, because it's definitely worth the watch.

Both male leads meet their future self and rushes against time to save the female lead lead from her impending death in the present.

Time travel and romance in both dramas! However, the lead in Nine uses time travel more purposefully to uncover secrets in the past which sometimes makes huge riffles and changes to his present, while Tomorrow seems to be more about traveling to the future and trying to affect it by changing the present. Nine has also a more serious/darker undertone to it.

    The drama was kinda slow and boring in the beginning but picked up towards the end. Took quite sometime to finish this drama and only marathon it after 3rd quarter of the drama. This is my first time watching Lee Je Hoon in a drama, his acting was natural and good.

    Am I the only one wildly impressed with unknown actor Baek Hyun Jin here? This guy is incredible. Although he obviously lacks range, he's as capable on screen as any other Korean actor I have seen.

    Really loving this drama. The lead actor Lee Je Hoon was the lead in "Signal" another suspense/supernatural drama. He's great in this too.

    Comparing to those current popular dramas out there, this one has decent pace (note that I always love fast pace, but I could still enjoy this one while I mostly drop anything slow). The plot definitely is not the best, but this isn't the worst either.
    Romance has been the first element that always attracts me to watch any show, and TWY delivers the best one by far. More importantly, the whole package: beautiful OST (when I said beautiful, it is really really beautiful), wondrous directing, and sizzling chemistry between the leads made me put TWY as one of my top 3 fav kdrama. Absolutely not for everyone's taste, but I must say, for those who could enjoy it, you've just found a gem which by far is the most underappreciated drama in 2017.
    I'm going to echo the previous comments here for new viewers to give it a try. Most dramas get better by episode 3 or 4.

    It is definitely one of the most beautiful romantic story out there. It was a tad melancholic that I almost regretted watching it because it hurt so much. Still, what made it beautiful is how realistic it almost is. You're like watching how a real love story would evolve. I can see my parents in them. Though I must admit, aegyo is definitely not in Je Hoon's repertoire. Hahaha. It was really beautiful, both of the leads did a great job.

    I guess this show is definitely not one for everyone. Personally i felt that it was a tad too slow for my liking and i really struggled to finish this but still the last few episodes managed to salvage the situation a little..just a little. Oh and another redeeming factor was that the OSTs were pretty good.

    Once again, definitely not a show for everyone with its slow pacing

    I had to keep skipping this drama. It has an unnecessary melancholic tone which makes no sense.I don't see the point of drafting a melancholic tone with a clueless character like Ma Rin it's just wrong. It felt like an oxymoron. Getting a character that gets drunk and acts like an idiot but gets mad thinking that everyone is criticizing her when she's a has been child actress. It just does not make sense at all. I've watched a LOT of time traveling shows but this has to be one of the worst and most boring one of them all. Quite disappointed. Many people who voted this higher probably haven't seen as much better time traveling shows. The female character alone is bad enough but the story just never got any better.
