I finished this shortie before the flu and Christmas ran away with my time and energies and thought I would come back and try to do the 2 episode summaries, but I find that I can’t muster the enthusiasm to go back and figure out what happened in those final 6 episodes so as to avoid spoilers! 😊 I’ll just have to lump it all together below (spoilers after the jump), but I will say that in general I enjoyed this drama and the couple and was surprised on a number of points — all good things!
You know what I especially love about this drama? I love the fact that there are no filler characters. Even the 2nd layer secondary characters are given a unique role and piece of the fabric of the overall drama. I’m sure that in a lot of other dramas that cheating creep of a doctor and his jealous girlfriend/wife would act just as background, over the top noise, but yet here we get to see what’s going on behind her actions… her insecurities… her painful smiles and pretense… aw, how painful it is to contemplate the humiliation she was willing to endure to keep that idiot by her side. Bravo for giving her a new future thanks to our couple!
Course we have no idea what the consequences will be because of all this tampering do we? I know that time travel rules are made to be broken but at least they have to make sense. I’m all confused. LOL, but it doesn’t really matter. I’m so glad that the couple is finally talking to each other and clearing the air.
The more I watch this drama the more I’m struck by how this is the saddest romantic comedy I can ever recall! You know going into something like Dokkaebi that there is heartache on offer, but here I was not expecting the depth of sorrow and loss they’re exploring. More spoiler-ish content after the break.
I’m continuing to enjoy spending time with these guys. The side characters are showing more substance and individuality too and I look forward to getting reacquainted with the adult versions now that we’re getting to know these younger versions. Spoiler content after the break.
What a great start! I really enjoyed that first episode and it flew by so fast. I’m not sure I knew what to expect though I had a hazy idea about what it was about. It had a bit of everything..lovely comedic moments but really poignant ones as well which I didn’t expect.
Mild spoilers after the jump.
