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.

Time travel and romance in both dramas! However, the lead in Nine uses time travel more purposefully to uncover secrets in the past which sometimes makes huge riffles and changes to his present, while Tomorrow seems to be more about traveling to the future and trying to affect it by changing the present. Nine has also a more serious/darker undertone to it.

Both dramas tell thought-provoking stories questioning, if changing/knowing one's destiny is fortunate or a curse.

    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 5....so 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)

    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.

    Watched this who's while waiting for ep 5 of W two worlds. The premise of the plot is good but the characters are a bit of a downer. I really really hate Sun Woo's brother who is a coward and weak minded of a man. He starts and drives the whole mess and always hiding avoiding consequences which everyone around him has to live with by his actions. Grrr...on ep. 15 now and getting to hate him even more.

    Nine has the really dumb female and arrogant male lead. xO I started to watch it only because part of the drama was filmed in Nepal, kinda my second home. But the plot happened to be breathtaking. Though I mostly fast-scrolled the second harf of the episodes as it was draggy. 20 episodes is too much.

      I think the same too....which is why I haven't watch it yet. Is it worth watching? After W, I hope I don't get disappointed again with the writer
