If you are looking for drama that focuses on romance, this might be the one you are looking for. The drama focuses on how the main characters build up their relationship, it was a very simple plot and easy to understand. I like how the time travel plot is kinda messy and fortunately, I’m still able to understand it. There are also some plot twist happened there that made me like :O. Also, the sad moments were kinda sad and made my heart break for awhile, even the sad music is so on point T_T. Even though there are only 10 episodes, the story is still able to be completed well. There would be a bit of confusion there as it will take sometime for me to get used of thinking these two main male characters is the same person.
In this drama, at least after watching it, I learned some things that can be applied in the real life world.
The actors and actresses acted pretty well there. I actually didn’t encounter the main female character acted before? She actually did very well as a main character in this drama. Oh well, looking forward to see her act again in the future, hope she could act more.
Overall, this drama is good, short and simple. Able to meet my desired romance criteria. If you are interested in high romance drama, why not try this? I believe you would like this as well :).

"Longing Heart" was sweet, cute and innocent time-travel drama. It made me think about the future and how my choices can affect it. Even though is not the best drama I've seen, it was a nice to go back to 2007 were Girl's Generation were just getting started and flip phones were a thing.

My first impression was that this was just another confusing time-travel drama. I was right, even after watching the drama untill the very last second I still don't know how the whole time-travel thing works, this part of the plot was handled pretty messily. Maybe I shouldn't give it to much thought because the all story it's pretty paradoxal and could destroit the entire time and space. (I've watch a lot of Doctor Who lately.)

We follow Shi-Woo who have spent the last 10 years in love with his first love. (I never said this drama was realistic). The thing is that they don't see each other since high school, so when they met again it's a very awkward full of resentiment encounter.

But taking the whole time-travel thing off the picture, this drama mix in a bunch of romantic cliche stories in one, we have the first love one, the boy-meets-girl one, the teacher-student one, the noona one and the list goes on. It's not bad per say, but this drama is not for everybody. If you don't like cliche this is not for you.

This drama has also some nostagia value because it take us back to simpler times aka the "thousands" were smartphones weren't heard of and we didn't have wi-fi everywhere we went, and I really liked that about the drama.

Now let's focus a bit on the romance. For some weird reason, the student version of Ji-Soo had more chemistry with the Shin-Woo teacher version than with the student version, and the opposite happened with the doctor version of Ji-Soo who had more chemistry with the Shin-Woo student version than with the teacher version, and that got me really confuse, and I still confused 'till today. The side romances were also really cute and I like that the script gave them some space to develop, even though the focus was almost all the time on the main couple.

A strong point on this dramas was definitely the friendship, the group of friend had a really good dynamic through out the whole drama, and was my favourite part of the show. Even after ten years they still in touch with each other and that just happen if the bound connecting the people is strong enough. Also the "bromance" between the past and present Shin-Woo was great even though they look more like brothers than properly like the same person.

Acting / Cast: The actors did well, this isn't a acting masterpiece but it was good. Lee Jung-Shin was the person that stood out the most for me, I really liked his acting and how he portrayed adult Shin-Woo with is mix between a very adult person who still had something of a child inside. Seo Ji-Hoon also did a great job even though the writers sometimes made his character look like a little kid even though he was almost eighteen. Lee Yeol-Eum was also good, but I found her character a bit lame and annoying at times, but I think that was more about the writing than about the acting. The rest of the cast was also very good and did great supporting the main cast!

The OST of this dramas was good, it fit the mood, but was not memorable for me. The cinematography was also good with some pretty and cute pictures.

Overall I think this drama could have been an hour and a half long movie and the story would still be exactly the same but without the boring moments, I think some things got stretched out what made the drama a bit boring and even more confuse.

Will I watch this drama again? Probably not, for me this is a one-time-watch drama, principally because I'm not into clichê, and this drama has a lot. I recommend this drama for people who really really like cliche, because this will be perfect for you, it has almost every cliche I can think of in dramas, which is not bad, but it's to much for me personally. But if you are into cliche and have some free time you would like to fill with something this dramas is definitely for you.
