He attempts to keep his family safe in order to change the world he lives in today. However, this is not without consequences as his actions in the past affects the lives of many in the present, including his.
What I have to say:
I posted on Instagram about considering this, and at least 2 or 3 people said they'd seen it and it was good, so I went for it. As you can see in my post on 4/1, I started it and liked it. It took me a while to finish it because I mostly just watched it when I could take the time to do so on my lunch break. I'm glad I watched it. I don't fully understand the ending, but I also am not dissatisfied with the ending. I have my own interpretation of it, and I feel like overall it's a good message. The first 2, maybe even 3 episodes moved a bit slowly, but after that it sped up and I craved watching it. I, as mentioned on this blog about K-Dramas, LOVE time travel themes, so it's no surprise I liked this. I thought they did the 1993 vs. 2013 very well. If you like time travel themes, you'll like this drama.
See the complete list of dramas I've reviewed here.
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.)
