    The idea (only the idea) looks like a reversed FAITH. In FAITH the modern doctor went to a few hundred years ago era, while in this drama, doctor from a few hundred years ago went to modern era. #justmyopinion

    Anyways I like opa in shark, he acted so badass but scary sexy on the same time. I want to watch this drama, hope I can see his excellent work again.

    Nonuts Says:

    The only thing wrong with this drama is Nam Gil, who is about as romantically appealing as a doorknob. The same can’t be said about Ah Joong. She is so well packaged that if you dropped cardboard cutouts of her in amongst jihadees they’d be convinced they’re in the afterlife and their unholy scripture fulfilled.

    MaxT Says:

    I’ve watched the first 4 episodes and they were pretty good. Kim Ah Joong looked amazing in this drama. I couldn’t believe she was this pretty. :P~\
    Highly recommended. 9/10

    Nonuts Says:

    Kim Ah Joong in the movie “Steal My Heart” a.k.a “Catch Me” played opposite Joo Won. Their chemistry was better than this drama with Nam Gil.

    Both actor and actress have a good chemistry. Even this uses old theme (time travel), but I enjoy watch this.. Daebak~!

    Ep10 was so awesome. Oh Ha Ra . . . what a sweetheart. I know it’s fiction but the emotions were so intense. And the orchestration . . . what can I say . . . no expense was spared. So well put together it left me an emotional wreck.

    -Autumn- Says:

    i am not a fan to both leads. But i came to watch the drama when I read the good feedback. And I was hooked. Love both Kim Nam Gil and Kim Ah Joong. Their chemistry works well in this drama. They did a good job and good act. Now I just want to see the romance between them.

    dramalady Says:

    It is a very interesting drama. It catches you once you’ve started. Both leads are superb. Kim Nam Gil ruthless expressions are his trademark. No one can be compared.
    The plot is wisely written though the idea may steal from Queen Inhyun”s man. It is the same, worth to spend the hours watching it.

    Peggy Says:

    I hope the ending is good. Good chemistry btw the two leads

    Aiu Says:

    One of GREATEST KDRAMA 2017! Can’t wait till saturday and sunday! Well written, great casts, best combination between drama, comedy and sad moments. Made me laugh and sad in every episode. Kim Nam Gil and Kim A Joong are the BEST! Can’t stop admire Kim Nam Gil who portrayed hilarious and cool act at the same time. You Guys MUST watch this, you’ll never regret. The story is not mainstream and offer you something new, especially the characters.
