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'm at episode 10 at the moment but for some reason I have to 'force' myself to watch this series. It doesn't give me the feel of "I need to marathon all the eps now". Is the ending really worth it? Should I give it a go again and watch it until the end?

    It's a beautiful and endearing story of a newly-wed couple. The time-traveller plot works. It's not easy weaving in and out of the past and present and the writer/PD/whomever does a great job in ensuring the audience is not lost. The chemistry was just sizzling. Depicts total strangers coming together and genuinely falling in love with one another. Antagonist was a total psycho. The twist in the end is v sad, but I wouldnt have it any other way. OST "Flower" by Seo In Guk was DAEBAK! I didnt know his voice was smoooth as silk!

    One con: The 1-3 episode is a little bit slow. But it is not that bad.

    I think the whole concept of this drama is quite original. It is a drama about a time traveller, however, the main focus is the Yoo Sojoon and Song Marin's relationship.

    I don't think this is a drama for everyone. People who love the romance genre and enjoy slow dramas could end up loving this a lot, others -- not so much.

    Personally, I found some episodes of this amazing and some very hard to sit through. This drama certainly had its ups and downs in the flow of the plot. But the development of the relationship was nice to watch, they certainly had chemistry, and it was interesting to try and find out why everything is the way it is. I know people had problems with the side characters, I thought that pretty much all of them were interesting, however, there were some for whom I did not understand why they're there.

    I'm not sure if this would stay as a very memorable drama for me, one I would miss, but I know that there would be people who would love this a lot. So if you can't decide whether to watch this, I'd say you should give it a try. :)

    I really love this show! The chemistry between min ah and je hon is electrifying! The story is not perfect but it's forgiven due to the main role. I really hope there will be other shows that pairing them. Laaffffff

    It was off to a great start but became boring midway through - 9th episode was too sweet and just nah. I just skipped through the rest of the episodes.
    On the other hand, the camera work was flawless and I felt like I am watching some high-quality movie. And the cast! Wow. Loved everyone. I was disappointed that the main couple chemistry was way off tho.

    I started this drama with no expectations and by the third episode I was hooked, every episode gets you curious about what is going to happen, it never got me bored to me. It has good acting and good chemistry between the leads (a lot of cheesy moments XD) I was expecting a little more at the end but still, very unexpected ending, I like it. In my opinion give this drama a try :)

    This show def a romance drama . Why I said this bcoz it was the 'only' vibe that I got from watching TWY. There are ofcos fantasy and melodrama elements ( my fav genre) exist in this show but it was severely dimmed if it were to compare to the amount of romance element this show's showing. There are A LOT of romantic scenes, A LOT of kissing and hugging scene of our OTP. This indeed is the perk of when your OTP get together early in the show. You got a lot of those as bonuses :P To be honest, while watching this there are a LOT of cringey moments for me. About the plot, I'd say it was too slow to my liking. Despite all the unpleasant feels I still want to finish this drama. May the cuteness of Shi Min Ah and dashing looks of Lee Je Hoon give me power to make it to the end... - only 4 eps left fo finish -

    The writers had good grip on the script, but they made villan seem fearful when he was just a near old age guy. He wud have been fearful if he had the same power as MC which he does not. The other cast feeling fearful of an old guy and giving the MC misinformation was totally unnecessay. That mister shud have told everything to Mc and also Mc shud to the fmc about accident. Sometimes the writing seems brilliant then suddenly becomes illogical. Here the powers go to 2 most dumb ppl. u can see it in their actions.
