This drama is like the more unpredictable drama I've ever watched. I like how TvN's drama tends to relie more on the plot than current popular actors/idols to get good ratings.

[The Story]

So like I said it's the most unpredictable drama I've ever watched.
The plot was from the beginning very interesting and creative. Even though the time travel thingy seems to be the trend nowadays, the fact that the main character actually travel back and forth at the exact same time but with a 20 years difference makes it unique.
Each episode brings its share of suspense which makes you fall down from your chair and even though there are only 4 episodes left, I still don't have a clue about what the ending could be like.

[The Cast]

Even though some of them seem to have a long career, I didn't know any of the actors when I began to watch, and I must say some of them definitly impressed me.
Lee Jin Wook (Park Seon Woo) has a lot of charisma, and I think he portrayed his role perfectly. We can also feel that he has a good feeling with his co-actress Jo Yoon Hee (Joo Min Young) and this adds a lot of credibility to the romance part which isn't that big to begin with.


[The music and rewatch value ]

The OST doesn't appeal to me particularly but it definitely matches the drama well and adds a lot to the sad and suspensful scenes.

I gave a 9 for the re-watch value because I'm 100% I'll watch this drama again, just to be sure I didn't miss anything now that I know everything (well, almost, because there are still 4 episodes to be broadcasted) and because the drama really leaves me a deep impression and makes you addictive.

In conclusion, if you want to be surprised and like suspens, this drama is made for you :)

I'm writing this review after reading the comments here of some people who apparently disliked this drama and I'm like wow! is it possible ? I agree on some bad points but I definitely think it would be a mess if people give up watching this amazing drama because in my opinion this is one of the best dramas I watched (and I watched a lot).

It will be quite long ^^"

[The story]

A very inventive story in my opinion. This kind of story definitely is some fresh air compared to the usual 'impossible romance' story line of historical dramas (it gets better nowadays, I agree).

The first time I read the synopsis, I was a bit reluctant to watch the drama because it seemed really disgusting (what's with eating people's liver ?...) but I decided to give it a try anyway because of the cast and I'm far from regretting it.
Even though there aren't really any suspense, the story is captivating.
All the characters are equally important and you always ask yourself if you really can hate or love any one of them because their character is far from being simple.
The gumiho thingy isn't what's the more important here as the story is more focused on the parents who try to save and protect their beloved child no matter right.
It definitely is a beautiful story in my eyes.

[The cast]

Here comes what has been one of the strong point of this drama. If every characters are important, then every actors was...extraordinary.
Han Eun Jeong (Goo San Daek)and Jang Hyeon Seong (Yun Du Su)were perfect in their roles, and I still can't say which one of them is the good or the evil in this story. They perfectly portrayed their difficult character - especially Jang Hyeon Seong.
As for the child actors, Kim Yoo Jeong (Yeon Yi) and Seo Shin Ae (Cho ok) totally amazed me. They were rather young at this time, and yet they totally stood out next to the adult actors. I'm sure both of them will have a great carrier.
As for Lee Min Ho(Jo Jung Kyu), though he had a supporting role he did very well.
Special mention to Suh Joon Young (Cheon Woo) who won my heart and made me tear even as a mute.

[The Music]

What can I say about the music apart from saying that I'm still playing the OST again and again six months later ? In my eyes, the OST is what made this drama better. I confess I didn't skip some slow parts only because of the music.

[Rewatch Value]

I only gave a 7 for the rewatch value because though it's an absolutely awesome drama, once you've watched it, then there isn't any reason to watch it again except for the amazing cast.
The story in itself doesn't call for a rewatch and I guess that many (which I'm part of) wouldn't have the patience to watch all those chasing/crying/screaming/betraying scenes again when you already know what happens.
I may watch it again later though, if I've forgotten most of what happens.

[What I disliked]

Because even though I loved this drama, I can't deny there are some things I didn't really like.
I don't want to spoil so I won't write them all (there aren't that much anyway)
Some of Goo San Daek's actions are quite...unrealistic. Let's say she could have done things better as a Gumiho and a mother. This didn't bother me that much while watching though, I just realised after. ANd let's say that if she had done what was needed right away, the drama would be groundless.
Oh, and make sure you're volume isn't too high too, because Cho Ok is a character who screams a lot...

I hope this will help :)

Okay, here's my very first review for this...special movie.

First I have to say that I really liked this movie.
It's rather impossible to say if the story takes place in Edo period or nowadays, but let's say it's mostly in Edo period with some elements of nowadays (such as travelling by motobycle)

One of the good points of this movie is that you can still learn two or three things about the Edo period and the story, despite being more than weird, is kinda addictive. I don't know how many times I thought 'what the heck is this movie...writers smoke some weird things', but I still kept watching out of curiosity, and I don't regret. I even shed some tears at the end.

However, now that I watched this movie a long time ago, I had time to think further about it and I can now see many points that I had just skipped. Thus, the high rewatch value. I think it's needed to watch it at least 2 times to understand fully the movie. Not that the story in itself is complicated to understand, but many of the weird things turn out to be quiet deep in meaning.

I don't have anything special to say about the acting but even though I admit I watched it for Nagase Tomoya, the two main characters were both great.

So yeah, if you are able to bear not understand the meaning of what is happening in a movie in one go and you want to spend a good time, watch this movie :)
