In order to save her father from an accident, 25-year-old Kim Hye Ja uses a mysterious watch to rewind time in an attempt to prevent the accident, but fails. Desperate, she ends up rewinding the watch too many times and accidentally ages herself, becoming a 70 year old. Confused and oblivious as to how she ended up like this, she sets out on a journey to put everything back on track. Along the way, she encounters her family and friends who no longer recognize her, including Lee Joon Ha, a young man she loved, who yearns for her while struggling with his life. When 70 year old Kim Hye Ja and the young Lee Joon Ha come together to form an unlikely bond, a devastating and life-turning truth is revealed, the crux of all the time she lost.

Watching this drama is like collecting puzzle pieces on your path that comes together in the last episode. The end will give meaning to everything and make you think about your life.

The writers cleverly hid the real plot and tricked the viewers into believing it is a romantic comedy. They held our hands and pulled us toward a fantasy world that was funny and sad at times. All to ease us into the real story that is fascinating, deep, and heartwarming.

Main Themes:
- Bond between parents and their children, friends, lovers, and family members.
- Living through the hardships and enjoying each moment you have, instead of worrying about the future or regretting the past.

I am so impressed with the morals this drama carries and the amazing performance of all the actors. I am also happy that my curiosity made me complete the episodes, because I would have missed a valuable gem.

wow! I started this drama off expecting some light fantasy rom com cheesy drama but oh boy was I in for a surprise, comedy peaked at certain points, mainly from interactions with Hye Ja and Young Soo, but the melodrama really was a big aspect throughout the drama especially the last few episodes, a few times I got jumbled throughout the drama there were a few too many things going on that I couldn’t exactly figure it out or understand it. But there were tiny hints hidden throughout the episodes to help to understand the overall drama.
The acting was great, they really managed to convey the emotions and lay it on thick and raw, really outstanding, especially from support characters
Overall this drama was a real game changer with its sudden plot twist, it always seemed to keep me on my toes throughout the drama, it was enjoyable and really made me think how important time is and how you should spend it and the overall importance.
