This is one of the best dramas I have ever watched! I can say a thousand positives things about it and I find hard to found any negative.
Reasons to recommend this drama:
- An amazing touching and unforgivable love story with perfect chemistry between the couple and true hot kisses that would makes your heart flutter like crazy.
- The original and thrilling plot with endless twists and surprises that would read more make you wonder what is going to happen next (and hardly you would even guess it right).
- Excitement, suspense and insatiable hunger for keep watching without stop. Highly addictive once you start.
- There are 20 episodes and you don't have enough. After finished you still thinking "What happened?" "What was all this about?" "Did I really understand the whole thing?" ; and when you believe to have understood all, then you just start to feel confuse again. Definitely need to be rewatched to enjoy of this details you didn't know at the beginning were important.
- Despite of many time-travel theme dramas out there this one from my opinion is the best.

Weak points in the drama:
- Perhaps for more experts in time-travel theories the plot might have some holes or inaccuracies but as a general viewer I didn't find huge mistakes as in other dramas with similar plots.
- The music fitted well to create the adequate atmosphere according to the scenes filmed at the time. However a good original selection of romantic songs would have helped in the enhancement of the romance.

At last, I would like to mention that I enjoyed very much of the acting setting and conclusion in this drama. Again and again, Lee Jin Wook and Jo Yoon Hee were brilliant together, you really wish their love would survive after all eventualities. I hope to see more great moments with Lee Jin Wook in the new drama "The Three Musketeers".

Where do I begin to tell the story of how great a drama can be? Because this drama was great. Although it made me spend 20 hours of my life on an emotional rollercoaster, I can't complain because it was just so good. There were many scenes that broke my heart and a lot more that were so full of suspense that I was really anxious most of the time. Even when read more the writers were kind enough to endow us with a nice and fluffy scene, because that only meant that something really awful is going to happen.

Even though there was a lot of angst, I found myself smiling happily and even laughing out loud because some scenes were just ridiculously funny and just made me happy. Those scenes were very welcomed breathers between all this anxiousness and nervousness.

I actually liked all the characters (except the root of all evil Choi Jin Cheol) and the way they all were intertwined. Their relationships were interesting to follow and I was especially fond of the relationship between Sun Woo and Young Hoon, Sun Woo and Chul Min and of course Sun Woo and Min Young.
The interactions between each one of them and that everyone has some kind of a relationship with the others was great. Especially since we didn't know from the very beginning where they knew each other from.

To be perfectly honest I am not such a big fan of the time-travel-theme. But I found myself enjoying this drama very much. Although I found the beginning and the ending somehow confusing or just too much for my brain to grasp I didn't think that the whole time travel thing was difficult to follow. Even though that's often the case in such dramas.
But I don't think that not understanding the ending is a problem because I believe that this was intended by the writers. Everyone can interpret the ending the way he wants. There are many possibilities. And depending on which ending you choose it's either a happy or a sad ending.
For my part I still don't know if it has a bad or a good ending. But the last episode made me equally happy and anxious. But I guess the happiness or the funny parts in the last episode exceed the sad ones.

Nine_ Nine Times Time Travel is one of the best dramas that I have watched. It is awesome. The story and the characters are great and for me there is nothing more to wish for. Although at first I wasn't sure if it would be worth my time I am so happy I gave it a chance.
And I think that's also what you ought to do.

Even though the storyline is all different in both dramas, both are full of mystery, true friendships and the classic 'seeking for revenge' plot.

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.

    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.
