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.

    I have mixed feelings! I really want to watch this drama to the end--I even believe, as one member commented, that it will be a good ending. It's just that it is soooo slow! I don't even usually mind slow--a little bit. I'm on episode 7. The storyline is good and I like the actors. Maybe it's the music which is very slow, a bit odd and I'm sorry to say just doesn't add anything to this drama. There seem to be quite a few good reviews though, and if I could just put this on double time or 2x speed...I really am making a conscious effort to stick to the pace of this drama and not switch to something else. Maybe it will be worth it if I make it that far--I hate giving up in the middle of something. Perhaps if the music was faster, it would at least "feel" like it was moving a bit faster. I like a touch of suspense but that's not what the issue is here.

    This is a mature, melodramatic kind of drama. Some scenes were heart warming and the story line was understandable, unlike other complicated time travel stories. Shin min ah was timelessly Beautiful.

    This drama is quite good if you keep watching until the end. Its quite different from other dramas and takes a different spin on the 'melo' aspect. For me apart from the story line, the most unique thing would be that the story STARTS with the main lead getting MARRIED, not ends, which is extremely different to any other drama. However despite this the couples chemistry was still on point and natural <3

    Love the acting of the main couple. The best shin min ah's acting for me. And the only lee je hoon drama that i like (the others are too serious for me). 8/10 because lots of relationships between characters that changes too drastically (unnatural for me)..

    Still, two thumbs up for the lead characters :-)

    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.
