This is definitely a sweet little sentimental film. Unlike many time-travel dramas and movies, it uses this theme in the sense of “what if” and leaves viewers to reflect about life. The lead character does not go back in time to save the world but to merely save his loved ones. It’s personal and small-scale. I loved the reactions (I wouldn’t say ‘relationship’) between his present and past self, and I thought they looked so much like father and son.

This movie had a quite ‘commercial’ mood, meaning they made the overall tone light enough to reach a wide range of viewers. The directing, the cinematography, the atmosphere, even the story and the core message itself weren’t explored in depth. Personally I think It lacked personality, considering the fact that I enjoy independent films where messages are deeper and cinematography targets my ‘aesthetic trash’ self. In the story here there’s only a bit of romance, a bit of friendship, a bit of comedy, a bit of family and a bit of medical, portrayed in a rather vibrant palette. Nothing particularly stood out. Nothing deep.

However, this could be a good point for someone who’s looking for a rather light watch. It’s really nothing grand like its *wrong* choice of tagline: “What if you get 10 chances to change your past?” It doesn’t drive you to calculate your ability for 10 times time-travel that much.

Acting was really great in here. The leads Kim Yoonseok and Byun Yohan were alive in their roles. Other actors also did well. The music didn’t stand out to me, but it wasn’t awkward. It also seems like an easy choice to rewatch, but I don’t really know what I’d rewatch this for. I’m not a re-watcher so don’t mind my score.

I honestly loved this movie! Even though it did move a little slow at times (e.g., dialogue and character development), the plot was absolutely superb from beginning to end. The writers did a marvelous job thinking this one through, even down to the small, creative intracacies. The cast's (outstanding) acting was really the icing on the cake, making the story more relatable and believable. The chemistry and personalities expressed throughout this movie are just soo touching!! Perhaps the ending might seem predictable to some people, but the journey there was anything BUT forseeable. What a gem. ^^
