This is only the 5th episode but I feel compelled to write this given all the negativity.
First, this really is a fantasy, which some can't seem to understand. A funny one at that. As well as an interesting look at the dynamics of this group friendship, as well as the way our two leads keep missing each other. Every episode adds to the discerning viewers' understanding of what's happened to keep read more these two apart, as well as a unique way of examining both Pil's & Soo Jin's personalities. It seems more episodic than most KDramas, but since we know it's only 16 episodes there should be a resolution, so that's just fine! I'm spending a lot of enjoyable moments watching this drama - it is funny, charming, with some poignant moments and a great group of friends :D Give it a CHANCE, people!
BTW I'm giving it a HIGH rewatch value, not just because of JJ but because I've already had to go back & rewatch some scenes due to stuff I missed the first time around - scenes that didn't seem significant at first but which on viewing the next episode turn out to be important.

Both are time-travel drama because of their first love and the guy is trying to change his destiny and make the girl love and marry to him.

It's also about "time travelling" BUT the other way round. Which means a high schooler ends up 12 years in the future.

It a great contrast to Manhole but still simmilar.

    Episode 1 was mehh.. Episode 2 and 3 were funny but episode 4 was boring. I feel like this drama is going to be shaky and that it really depends on where the manhole is going to transport Bong Pil to. I don't hope that every episode is going to be at a different era.

    I like this drama ^_^ It's fun and refreshing :) I only hope that the plot gets a bit intenser (or how you call it) I'm sure it'll get more views if the storyline gets more interesting!! and weird how Bong Pil never gets tired :p

    So I just watched episode 1. At the very end the foreign language teacher speaks to his class and they repeat. And I wondered which kind of strange language he is speaking(yelling). Turns out I only recognized my mother tongue after seeing the blackboard...
    Wow, I think he tried to imitate Hitler. Gestapo totally fits as his nickname...

    I'm simply loving it.. story is so fresh and funny. Love all the characters.. they have their own awesome part in it. And the cherry on cake is Bong Pil messing up things while trying to fix them..
    really looking forward for some mind blowing funny scenes ahead.

    Why is Bong pil so hyper ALL THE TIME? The drama started to feel like a elongated Redbull commercial, not a good one that is.

      I know, I'm loving the drama, their friendship is awesome, but Pil seems to be hyperactive or something.

    This drama is such a great stress reliever!! I love how they are showing the significant moments in Bong Pil's life and having his relive it in a different way! When ever he come back to the future, I try and guess how his new life will play out!!
