Addictive Rating: 4
Synopsis: A couple that met in college in 1999 are miserable in 2017. They got married young and were definitely in love then, but life and a lack of communication plus the challenges of having a baby have made them unhappy. They wake up in 1999 again but with the knowledge of their lives as 38 year olds and marvel at being young again. They begin to realize as the drama goes on that they really do love each other and they start to reconcile their mistakes as a couple. The death of one of their parents also plays a strong, emotional pull in this drama.
What I have to say: As a married woman myself, with a young son, and having had a mother who has already passed away, I can admit it was kind of "close-to-home" due to the familial relationships. I could feel for the main female role in this drama, even though I met my husband well after college. I felt they kept the story moving along really well and I loved seeing the way they handled the past with the new past and the present day reality. It was also just very charming, sweet, and funny at just the right times when you're ready to bawl your eyes out. Anyone who likes a good romantic comedy with time travel will enjoy this drama!

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
