Time Travel is one of the best topic for a drama, but it is also a very difficult topic: if the script is bad, no matter how beautiful the storyline is, it will be a flop.
This drama has everything a time travel drama should have: good plot, good script, good casting and good meanings.
The plot is full of twist, emotions, changes and it takes you to another world, the world read more the main character is experiencing.
Because it is a drama that rounds around the main character: even if the others are important, the feeling you have is that Sun Woo is fighting alone with his own story, because he wants to change something he cannot change anymore.
I found this drama awesome because he makes you think about life.
"Changing something bad in the past maybe cannot bring you happyness."
If something bad happens you have to work alone on your own happyness, not trying to change your past or your fate.
This is the meaning of this drama in my opinion, and it is a good meaning.
I think this drama is amazing. Even if it doesn't allow you to understand everything (but this is part of the script), it makes you think of everyday life while the plot is a time travel so a 'fantastic' one.
I absolutely loved this drama and I am planning to rewatch it.
I reccomend this.

I really can't figure out why this isn't as popular as it should be.

I was sucked it by the first episode-- watched it all in barely four days. There was really nothing about it I didn't like. I actually tried to find problems with it:

Music= I didn't watch it on mute! Good job music.
Romance (too much/little)= this is how you balance, man.
Action (pointless/thrilling)= :') All interesting and had read more a purpose
Actors= chemistry was great, I didn't have to cringe at anyone
Comedy (too much/little)= Came just when I needed it. It was sarcastic and witty and wow I'm pretty sure I didn't laugh at anything I wasn't supposed to this time because, y'know, good acting
Ending= the only time I really didn't mind an ambiguous ending.

Personally, I really like Nine: Nine times Time Travel :D and after watching first episode of Tunnel, I am already addicted to it!~ Those who love time slip dramas will definitely love this too :) (if you aren't too picky) It brings me laughter (natural type of comedy), tears, nervousness etc. while being intense. While Nine:Nine times travel time travel via incenses, Tunnel is via Tunnel as the title mentioned.
Cases were interesting.

Both mystery dramas deal with objects that allow the protagonists to "time travel". In both dramas their is a main couple that is somehow intertwined with each ever time.

    Great drama but has many plot holes. Could also have been better with a different female lead.

    Interesting concept with time traveling and butterfly effects but I really couldn't connect with the two main leads. In my opinion PSW is either being angsty or a selfish jerk, totally unreliable and abandoning his friend most of the time, while JMY is annoyingly immature, self-centered, whiny and obnoxious.

      I didn't mind him, but oh my goodness was JYH as Min Young annoying. I couldn't also help but be creeped out by the fact that she looked and acted like she was 12 which makes zero sense as her character is supposed to be 30. Plus, that hair helmet helped not at all and somehow made me want to punch it every time it came on screen. I mean, THAT HAIR.

      But even aside from her, I just didn't think they had any believable chemistry and the plot had time travel plot hole problems, as interesting as the idea was. Disappointing overall! Can't believe the rave reviews, but glad some people enjoyed it

    I loved it, from the first second to the last. I was absolutely clued to the screen. Amazing storyline, great characters! It all worked very well together. Especially the end is gold. However it is a must to focus on especially the first episode, otherwise you might end up very confused at the ending

    I like how the time travel concept is played out in this drama. However, I do not like the characters. I do not feel for them or relate to them at all. Might be a matter of preference.

    After reading glowing reviews of this show, I watched it and I'm so glad I did. I enjoyed it immensely. This is one of the best drama I've ever seen, the storyline is so good and thought provoking. Lee Jin Wook and Jo Yoon Hee were very good at their roles and Lee Seung Jun acted very well as Sun Woo's best friend. Even after watching the last episode, I continued thinking about the ending which I think is very interesting. I'd definitely recommend this drama to watch!

    Done watching. Amazing drama. Romance, comedy, thrilling & adventure all in one, It will make you wonder what really happen to Sun Woo & Min Young because of the tragic ending but before that, a realization in the past of that incident occurred. Highly recommended!!!

    I am at episode far I love every episodes I've watched... exciting & a bit of mind boggling...I love the main roles - Lee Jin Wook & Park Min Young (she looks like Francine Magalona)

      Gosh I *wish* Park Min Young had played that role instead of Jo Yoon Hee! Would've been 10x better! I mean 9x better! ^_^

    What a fantastic series! At first, I didn't want to watch it... I don't know why, something was off, i liked the concept about time travelling but there was something that couldn't convince me to start it. But then I started it... and I'm glad I did it!
    This was lit! It was almost perfect in everything, the brilliant protagonist Park Sun Woo interpreted by a fantastic Lee Jin Wook (his voice is so sexy and deep, it is addicting), his brothership with Han Yeong Hoon was super cute, wish I could have a friend like him. Also Jo Yoon He did a good job! (she has really a pretty smile)
    I recommed this series to everyone who has already watched Signal, because the sceneries are really similar. So if you like the former, I recommend the latter (Nine Times Time Travel) or viceversa.
