This drama is like the more unpredictable drama I've ever watched. I like how TvN's drama tends to relie more on the plot than current popular actors/idols to get good ratings.

[The Story]

So like I said it's the most unpredictable drama I've ever watched.
The plot was from the beginning very interesting and creative. Even though the time travel thingy seems to be the trend nowadays, the fact that the main read more character actually travel back and forth at the exact same time but with a 20 years difference makes it unique.
Each episode brings its share of suspense which makes you fall down from your chair and even though there are only 4 episodes left, I still don't have a clue about what the ending could be like.

[The Cast]

Even though some of them seem to have a long career, I didn't know any of the actors when I began to watch, and I must say some of them definitly impressed me.
Lee Jin Wook (Park Seon Woo) has a lot of charisma, and I think he portrayed his role perfectly. We can also feel that he has a good feeling with his co-actress Jo Yoon Hee (Joo Min Young) and this adds a lot of credibility to the romance part which isn't that big to begin with.

[The music and rewatch value ]

The OST doesn't appeal to me particularly but it definitely matches the drama well and adds a lot to the sad and suspensful scenes.

I gave a 9 for the re-watch value because I'm 100% I'll watch this drama again, just to be sure I didn't miss anything now that I know everything (well, almost, because there are still 4 episodes to be broadcasted) and because the drama really leaves me a deep impression and makes you addictive.

In conclusion, if you want to be surprised and like suspens, this drama is made for you :)

okay,,, basically i always love fantasy genre. and this one drama has mesmerized me as a whole. at first i doubted to watch it as i don't really know the cast. but then after several minutes of the first episode i just couldn't stop. so i watch 8 episodes instantly until midnight.
the story is just genius. even i still curious with the secret of the time traveling but i think this read more is just a very clever way of telling a story. the twists in every episode just made me scream in anticipation on what might come next. i never get it right to guess the next scene because everything is just unpredictable.and after several episode i realize something. the way they edit the cinematography the music and the story itself remind me of queen in hyun's man. so i googled it and found it that both dramas have the same writer so i was like,,,, ooohhhh daebakk, so there is still more to time travel genre. and i loved both of them.

there is no scenes that i don't like. i just like everything.and the last episode i watch was just wow!!!

It's as thrilling as this drama and they have their own mystery they have to solve as well. Both are also about time travel.
Recommended by riribl
Both series are centred around themes of time-travel, where the main character tries to change things in the past in order to make things better in the future.

They go about this in a different way however:
In "Nine", the lead character uses some magic incense and has a short time to go back to the past, whereas in "I'll Be Back" the main character is stuck in a loop going back a few years and reliving those years over and over.

    for me this is the best drama in 2013 , the cast are perfect .
    I really loved the friendship between Park Sun Woo & Han Young Hoon , it is rare to find friend like that .
    I liked the plot and I find it interesting .. the interesting part in complexity .
    The last 10 minutes are more complicated than the events of the drama itself :)
     for a moment I felt that there will be a second Season of the drama , when he was on the plane .

    Just finished the drama but do not quite understand the ending. Jo Yoon Hee was really cute and Lee Jin Wook good looking. Certain parts of the drama was quite confusing to the past and back so many times but all in all the drama was ok.

    Halfway through the show and I want to like it. The actors are great plot even better and I love how they deal with the concept of time traveling. However I can't help but feel that somethings missing.. It doesn't engage or excite me the way I thought it would. Putting it on hold for now.

    Completely hooked and addicted to this drama! I'm now for episode 14 waiting to see how would end the story, At the present so impressed with the plot and moved with the romantic story between them. I remember when this drama was on air I didn't give much attention. It didn't have a main cast that appealed me specially and it wasn't advertised enough to even try. I thought "another time-travel" as the previous year already aired several dramas with this theme "Faith", "Rooftop Prince", "Time Slip Dr Jin" and "Queen In Hyun's Man". But I'm glad that I took the plunge to start it since I felt curious to watch other Lee Jin Wook's drama after seeing him in the new "The Three Musketeers".

    Why is no body mentioning the worth watching real kisses?! Lol! I have to mention it cause its like LJW telling JYH..'let me do the kissing babe and we'll give them a good show".....**perverted mind attack***
    Let me clarify though, this drama is more than that. It engaged me to marathon it and finish it only with restroom break,meals and 3 hrs sleep.
