Laugarza collaborates with kjlover in this drama recap of tvN's new drama, Nine: 9 Times Time Travel
Hello there, past addiction for the past few months! This drama is ridiculously good, and ridiculously bad at the same time. How can that be? As much as I love our main character, I can't even tell you how many times I was hell bent on throwing objects at her via computer screen. At the same time, she's lovable, quirky and extremely clueless, which is how most heroine's are. Did I mention she kicks ass, like literally? There's a love triangle and I honestly can't tell you who I was really rooting for, but all in all, I was content with the ending. There's annoying secondary characters (like all dramas) but they sort of turn out to be lovable. LOVED IT. Must watch, for serious.

While watching this show I started off not really expecting to like it. The first few episodes were really slow to me, and I found them a little boring. Then somewhere towards the middle it started to pick up and I found myself enjoying watching it for a little while. But then the last few episodes ruined it for me. I think they were unnecessary and the way it ended didn't answer anything [if you read the comments for it on DramaBeans it's exactly how I feel about it]. The way I feel is they could've ended it at episode 16, the ending they gave left me more confused than anything.

The story itself is a little on the ridiculous side, but
I wanted to watch it to see how they would make something like it turn out. A spy coming down from the north and forcing a Kpop star to marry her and to drag him back north. It sounded interesting though. I did find myself liking both of the male leads, also, as I was watching the drama.
The acting was really good for the most part. Especially from Eric - his acting was definitely the best and he kept good even at the end. After Han Ye Seul's incident that she pulled it makes me wonder what exactly her reason was for leaving the set like that, and then coming back. Was it to draw attention to the show? Her acting was pretty good, although after that incident I had half a notion to drop the show. The rest of the cast was well acted, as well.
The music is one thing that was really good about the drama. It was well-done and the songs were emotional. They also went well with the story. Some of the instrumentals had this Mission Impossible sound going on, too, but it gave it that "spy" sounding theme.
Overall - I wouldn't say this is a horrible drama. I've seen better, but I've also seen worse. I'd say it's something to watch if you don't have much else to watch. If only to watch it for Eric Moon and the music at least. There are parts that are funny and sweet, but it just wasn't a drama that I really got into [that's just my opinion though]. The only episode that really had me wanting the next episode was episode 1O. Most of the episodes were just okay for me. I know there are people who have enjoyed this drama, so you might be someone who does enjoy it.

Both Main Male Roles Have Same Personality,and they give me the same 'feeling'(I love their moustache!xD)
Myung Wol and Mi Ho gives off the same feeling, Myung Wol is from the earth but she is lost when it comes to love just how Mi Ho is lost about everything around her.I feel that Myung Wol is just as cute in her acting and voice as Mi Ho.If you liked one try the other 2, i`m sure you`ll like it
