    Han Ji Min’s acting is superb.

  14. 14 : MN18 Says:

    For me, I still adore Han Ji Min’s acting. from then till now,
    this story is a little irritating on Han Ji Min’s part since
    Ji Sung’s part is little like two timer husband. For me, No matter who and what you are now you should accept and take responsibility of it since you’ve done that. I also understand on Han Ji Min’s part in present why she is always on hot headed since that’s the role of a mother.
    Ji Sung’s attitude in present should be the one that must change for the sake of their relationship. For those also telling Han Ji Min Not Good Actress, Stop it will you since She’s a Multi Awarded as what you mis interpret her to be. For those making her down I have a question, How can she be an un talented, Get the Main roles of korean dramas such us Coffee Prince and Padam2x? She even has awards. right? maybe your just jealous if you keep saying bully on her.

  16. 16 : Familiar Wife Drama Says:

  18. 18 : DeeAn Says:

    Wooo, the plot resemble with “GO BACK COUPLE” (2017) stared by jang nara

  19. 19 : Icha Says:

    I really decided not to watch this at first for some reasons. But after watching some scenes of several eps, I was hooked. Now just finished the 4-episodes. Awww…. Jisung, as expected. Han Jimin, I started to like her. Cinematography, tvn never disappoints me. The story, very engaging & entertaining.

  20. 20 : gmail email login Says:

    Jisung and Han Jimin, I will definitely watch this drama!

  21. 21 : CIOCIOCIO Says:

    great drama

  22. 22 : Kim Lau Says:

    Ji Sung and Han Jimin : Good acting !!!

  23. 23 : Chae Won Says:

    I really like this drama. Ji Sung and Han Ji Min both doing a wonderful job.

    It is nice to see Lee Jung Eun (Woo Jin’s mother) who is also in Mr Sunshine as Aeshin’s maid. Her character in this drama is the bridge between the two time lines. And the irony is she suffers from alzheimers, yet remembers Joo Hyuk as her son-in-law. How sweet it is.

  24. 24 : Chae Won Says:

    After hearing Cha Joo Hyuk express regret for not knowing how precious someone was to him and then resolving to wishing with all his heart that person’s happiness, Woo Jin decided that she too will follow suit. She said rather than her usual self who says what was on her mind, Woo Jin decided; “I’m going to wish only with my heart . . . like you said.”

    They are really talking about each other, each not knowing that to be the case.

    It brings up an interesting observation that when we’re comfortable or feel a familiarity with someone and not with others, might that be in part due to past association with that person—past life?

  25. 25 : Chae Won Says:

    Ji Sung always looked older than his reported age. He’s not ageing well, still, I like him in this drama.

  26. 26 : asa Says:

    REally enjoying this drama with my Top 2 favorites Ji Sung and Han Ji Min. Great storyline makes you reflect whether the grass you think is greener on the other side, may not be like that at all when you go there. Their acting draws you into the story with their tension. Can’t wait for next episode!

  27. 27 : Alvin Says:

    I really love this drama….myself as a married man with a kid, I can really understand the suffering the male lead is going through. Yet the twist of fate made him realised the love he had for the wife that he used to love so much. Every week I have been looking forward to the next episode! Great drama.

  28. 28 : Shosh Says:

    I have to say that the Korean drama inndustry is the best in producing dramas. These dram shows inspired my to visit Korea, I will be in Korea at the end of September.
    These drama that absolutely enjoyed: I am a mother too, Tim, Sunny again tomorrow,Familiar wife, shall we live together and My ID is Gangnam beauty
    I hope that the will get recognition for theirs excellent works

  29. 29 : Lulu Says:

    SUCH AN INTERESTING DRAMA!!! and the acting, especially from the 2 leads is so good! So many thanks to the writer, cast, director and crew for bringing this to life. I hope it stays good till the end.

  30. 30 : Momo Says:

    TVn never disappoint audience. Nice drama!

  31. 31 : Nick Fury Says:

    Okay, so why they never mention their children? They don’t miss them? Oh yea . . . maybe if the children came into the story the script would be too long cos they’d have to include other relevant scenes.

    It’s a good drama. And I love Han Ji Min who appeared with Ji Sung in the 2003 drama “All In”.

  32. 32 : jane Says:

    Hooray! Ji Sung, you did it again! You’re a great actor!

  33. 33 : Bea Says:

    At first I watch the drama because of Ji Sung and Han Ji Min. As the story develope from silly teenage lovers to married couple with so many problems, I realize that the problems they dealt with is common around us. It could happen to us minus fantasy time travel thing. I learn so much from them. It taught me a lot to maintain great relationships with friends and family by not being selfish, more tolerance not only to our spouse, but others. Love love love this drama. Love the cast and crew. And since I’m the fan of Ji Sung… Love the drama even more. Best drama ever.

  34. 34 : natadetri Says:

    For those who are married and have kids, definitely can relate with this drama. I love every bit of it. Ji Sung very handsome! Han Ji Min so natural. Best part is the happy ending takes more than 2 episodes. 5 out 5 for me.

  35. 35 : Kay Says:

    This was such a nice and touching drama. Ji Sung and Han Ji Min were both wonderful!
