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.

Both are complicated time travel dramas that involve the main character going back in time to better their future. But consequences of time travel are their biggest foes.
Recommended by BaDaBa11
Even though the storyline is all different in both dramas, both are full of mystery, true friendships and the classic 'seeking for revenge' plot.

    I remember watching a few episodes when it was aired on tv, but this drama didn't attract me that much so I haven't continued to watch. But I remember that many articles said that this drama is really good.

    Great start, then it hit a melodrama bump (seriously the whole convo that lead Sun Woo's dad to his demise was kinda laughable), then it dragged a bit (or maybe not, it just dealt with the romance thingy which I have no interest with so it felt draggy for me), but at least it has a pretty satisfying ending.

    Attractive leads, (although I thought she was too talkitive. But when the story required her to play more serious scenes, and she became less hyper,you might say, I appreciated her acting more. I think though the best perormance came from Jeon No-Min as the brother.

    After seeing the last episode I've watched the first episode again and the last part of episode 3. Then everything make sens. The last phrase told us "to believe what we want to believe and to love what we want to love". Looks like the first episode is the sequel of the last episode.

    I'm trying to figure out what the ending meant but every theory that comes to mind doesn't fit somehow!

      yup. I think writers want audience to always guess it. thats why it had an open ending which is not leading any where. my head hurts when ever in think about last scene

      As I said, till today it remain as mysteries as what you say - doesn't make sense at all why he look so sad after the "telephone booth murder" if Sun Woo is not is biological son. It depend on how you understand the story and judgement, this what make the drama so special aren't it? I can make up another like 3 to 4 different interpretation of the ending but decided to stick to the original one which I posted in the OP because it make more sense in comparison.

    Great drama, I regret how silly I am back in the day of 2013 I stop watching after finding the first episode disappointing. I go for other drama instead and could not fall in love sooner and recommend this great series to friends. This could easily the best 2013 drama! How I wish I had the incense stick too lol. By the way, great OST too!

      No, she doesn't get a haircut! D: He should put this in his To Fix List. But please, keep watching it, I only fell for this drama near the middle.
