I started this drama because it seemed interesting and god was I right! The first episode starts a tad bit slow. This drama makes you laugh, cry,get frustrated, and then laugh again. You go awww a lot as well. I adore this drama! Mickey is so cute! The main girl is also strong, sometimes you get annoyed as to why she won't say somethings but still she's funny and very amusing. The read more other 3 guys with the price are complete spazzes and are very interesting to watch. They're so cute at how awkward they are.
I wanted to wait for more episodes to come out then watch it so I could see one after another but I cant! I keep watching the episodes as they come out.

I just finished watching this drama. I must say it's probably the most original and creative story I've seen in any drams I've watched so far. The concept of the parallel time periods and the mystery was really unique for me. It was so great to see a drama that, for me, really stood out against all the others I've watched. It lacked the predictability most dramas have. It was actually exciting read more to watch because I was never sure what would happen. My only gripe is that the ending seemed a little too rushed but I can still overlook that since I assume they probably had to cram it all in the episode. I'd recommend this drama to everyone. Fantastic!

They are both about ancient people time traveling to modern times. They have the same quirky feeling of how to adopt to modern technology and how to solve their own mysteries.

    For some reason , I really enjoyed watching this. I could get through the whole drama without skipping any parts. I was suffering from a dry spell, this one got me back to Kdramas.

    The storyline was interesting but the comedy part of the show ruined it for me. Also Ha Ji Min acting wasn't that great.
