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.

STORY:  10/10
The main thing that i really liked about the drama was the story and plot. Although, most people seemed to be confused and frustrated about it, I really enjoyed it and found it really thrilling and addicting because they always have BongPil travel through a different time through each episode (except for the last few eps). I really liked how one day he was a thug and the next day he was a high schooler or even-actually, I shouldn't put big spoilers , just in case hehe. Also, each time he travels though time, each episode, something new happens so we can never guess what will actually happen! I really luv how it toooo unpredictable!!

ACTING/CAST:  7.5/10
Okay, first thing, it's my first drama seeing Kim JaeJoong act and it was a blast! Idk how he acted b4 but I know I cried when he cried because of Soojin (in the last few eps). He's also reeaaalllll good-looking and cute^^ hehe Before, watching this, I wasn't a fan of TVXQ but after watching this......I think I'm a fan hehe( and i loved Pil's personality-it was entertaining to watch hiim). UEE's acting was okay but  Jinsook's acting was a bit awkward for me....but when I saw her cry....I wanted to cry as well haha.  Also, THEIR SQUADDDDD ARE FRIENDSHIP GOALSSSS lol

MUSIC:  5/10
umm.... the ost/music didn't really amuse me except for the sweet, happy song that played whenever pil and soojin were on a date or happily together :D
I think I'll watch it again because of how thrilling it was. BUT only if I had time bc of how many good dramas there are these days e,g While you were Sleeping. I still think I'll watch it again but what I want most of all (  i don't think you guys would want it), SECOND SEASON!!!!
