Part from the title, that is actually kind of odd, the main concept of this drama is interesting and entertaining. The first episodes, however, are a bit of a letdown. The going back in time through an alien manhole wasn't executed well enough and it ended up being a bit idiotic. Plus, the story hadn't developed yet and frankly everything seemed confusing and tiring. The drama picked up after episode five or so. The story tangled up and got messy, but at least there was some progress and the main character had some development, as well as his understanding for his friends and his relationship with them. The side stories took the lead at some point, which wasn't that bad as they were interesting and entertaining. However, in the end they weren't concluded well enough as the main romance did. Now, the love story was good and the chemistry between the actors was there sometimes. In addition, the performances were really good, and they helped a lot with the progress of the story.

The story although not great it was really intriguing. The characters are well built and the cast was well put. The plot was confusing and that's what i liked about it. The comedy was exceptional, especially the main character, when you see him (the actor) at first you think that he looks cool and all but when he goes into executing the role you see a whole new persona, he puts his all into perfecting his character and he managed it well and i think he was well chosen for the role cause sometimes he looks and acts dumb and some other times when the role requires it he acts cool and manly. For the other characters, in truth i didn't like the lead female at first (the first episode gives you the wrong impression of what that character's personality will be) but later on when you get to know her characteristics more you can't help but sympathize with her and i personally grew to like her more. The romance now, it's basically love triangles linked between the main characters (there are some short lasted occasions when they stray out of that circle but they mostly go around it) this kind of romance is really confusing to the watcher, that makes it harder for him (watcher) to identify with the character and to choose which one to support seeing that the writer made all this group of friends into protagonists so that you can't help but sympathize with all of them and that in itself makes it impossible to choose which one to support in his/her romance and that also makes you eager for the ending even you get a little bored in the early episodes you can't help but keep watching to know the ending and who will end up with whom and that helped the plot and with that keep the story alive.
If you want to relieve your stress and forget all your worries you should really watch this drama as it is entertaining and fun.
