    it’s a fantasy all right! A 70-year old man swallowed a meteorite which turned him back to a 34-year old (looks more like in his 40s), had the second chance to be a good human being and father, and fell in love. ‘aliens’ scheduled an end to his good ‘younger days’ fortune, turned him back to an old man, then the old man disappeared. out of nowhere he is seen as his younger self with no memory of the past! the ending scenes showed him having a second chance at love! i have no doubt the shk could pull off dual roles. jn rendered her role here with some similarities to her role in ftly, still it’s a good watch!

    What a PERFECT ending! It was the sweetest & warmest ending ever! I’m so madly in love with my Koong koong da couple! Their unending love simply captivated my heart that I found myself completely drawn into their love storyline. The last 2 episodes are absolutely DAEBAK. Episodes 15 & 16 moved & touched my heart so deeply that it made me tear up so so much! The last few minutes of episode 15 really broke my heart but that scene, though sad, was just so unbelievably beautiful. It captured their moment so beautifully & that sad kiss they had was the sweetest, most tender, & the most beautiful kiss ever! So touching! This drama, once again, proved that love indeed moves in mysterious ways. And that when someone is in your heart, that someone stays in your heart forever! I love Mr. Back so much & I’ll miss it for sure!

    Mr. Back is, undeniably, one of the best FANTASY rom/com kdramas I’ve ever watched in a long while. It’s well-written, well-directed, & to top it all, brilliantly acted by Shin Ha Kyun, Jang Nara, & Lee Joon. Shin Ha Kyun wowed me with his exceptional acting here. He was so funny as the grumpy Go Bong then crazy adorable & hysterically funny as the young again Shin Hyung. Jang Nara (who looks so pretty, btw!) as Ha Soo was just fantastic. She, most certainly, nailed her role! She puts a lot of heart in her acting in such a way, that will surely move & touch your heart, too. She never fails to tug at your heartstrings when she cries! But when she does her comedic parts, she’s so adorably cute & super funny. Such a brilliant actress! I’m so proud to be her fan, I love her so much! I hope both of them win some awards in the coming MBC Awards 2014 this Dec.

    Me, too, I’d like Mr. Back Season 2!!!!

    I agree Jang Nara nailed her role. Pretty much as she does with all her other roles, but while Ha Kyung is a good actor I never comes off romantic to me. He appears to relate to his female leads as if they are his niece or a much, much younger half sister. What is with that?

    It was such an adorable & heartwarming ending. I absolutely loved it! Initially, though, I was ON EDGE, like totally! Didn’t have any idea how writernim would end this drama, & the uncertainty was just killing me! My fears lessen somewhat as I watched episode 15 but didn’t expect the twist near the end of this episode. I seriously bawled my eyes out! That one scene alone was so amazingly powerful, heartwrenching, & adorably sad yet heartwarming. It touched me in ways I didn’t expect. I was pulled in & felt the rawness & realness of Ha Soo’s pain & fears.

    Jang Nara was incredibly AWESOME in that scene! Her ability to show different range of emotions & engage the viewers to actually undergo such emotional peaks, has always astound & impress me. She is, undisputedly, a great actress! I just love her to bits & pieces! Shin Ha Kyun, on the other hand, was just PERFECTION in that scene! The tone of his voice as he delivered his lines was so sad, tender, & full of deep emotions. It brought me to tears & I just couldn’t stop crying! I really felt how deeply Shin Hyung & Ha Soo felt for each other. Made me love my OTP even more!

    But as episode 16 progressed, I was struggling to keep it together. Just couldn’t take it any longer! I had this awful feeling that I would get my heart broken soon, & my poor heart would be handed back to me in a million tiny pieces! Thankfully, writernim didn’t back pedal. I loved the way writernim brought it all together for a wonderfully HAPPY ENDING!

    I absolutely loved Mr. Back! It’s a great holiday drama. It’s about relationships, self-discovery, trust, forgiveness, healing, & most importantly, love. It was the hauntingly beautiful love storyline of Shin Hyung & Ha Soo that captured my heart & got me totally immersed. What an amazing portrayal of a love brought about by fate, that doesn’t have to be perfect, so long as they have each other. It was so beautifully woven together that I was swept away & absolutely fell in love with my Koong koong da couple! What makes their love story even more endearing is that, it makes us realize that memories are priceless treasures that we can cherish forever in our hearts. And that is not FANTASY, that is REALITY!

    I’m missing Mr. Back already! I’m hoping Shin Ha Kyun & Jang Nara win the Best Couple Awards, Grand Prize for Shin Ha Kyun for his GOLD performance in Mr. Back, & the gorgeous Jang Nara, the well-deserved Best Actress Award in the coming MBC Drama Awards 2014 tomorrow!

    So happy for Shin Ha Kyun & Jang Nara for winning the Popularity Awards! And I’m so proud of Jang Nara for winning Top Excellence Actress for her roles in Mr. Back & FTLY & Best Couple for FTLY! It was her night for sure!
    She looked stunning that night too.

    Me, too! I’m so glad Shin Ha Kyun & Jang Nara won the Popularity Awards for Most Popular Actor & Most Popular Actress! And Jang Nara brought the house down by winning Top Excellence Actress & Best Couple with Jang Hyuk (sniff…..sniff would have been happier if with SHK!). Aaww…..saw her vids on the Red Carpet (she was gorgeous!), when she got the Popularity Awards with Shin Ha Kyun (he looks so dashing & debonaire!), when she got the Best Couple Award with JH, & she got emotional when she was awarded Top Excellence Actress. I was tearing up, too! I’m so very happy for her! She deserves all her awards & I’m wishing her more projects this 2015. Neomu neomu saranghae, Jang Nara!

    Just magical…….I defi-freaking-nitely loved the ending! The final episode took me to a whirlwind of emotions. I was crying, heartbroken, & happy. I was completely consumed by the turn of events that writernim presented & oh my gosh, the inevitable was just too much to bear! I was like, NO writernim, this can’t be happening, not NOW, not on the final episode! My poor heart soared, broke, & healed (thank goodness!) as episode 16 unfolded. The latter part of episode 16 just took my breath away. I was totally drawn into that mesmerizing OTP moment. That touching yet soooo beautiful scene brought me to tears but those were tears of joy! Seeing Ha Soo’s reaction, I so wanted Shin Hyung to come around right that instant, seriously! But it didn’t happen & it didn’t matter at all. What mattered the most was the realization that no matter what TIME or DISTANCE has been between them, nothing is going to change what’s in Shin Hyung’s heart. It was an ending like no other & undoubtedly, the most adorable ending EVER!

    Totally loved Mr. Back beyond words! It’s amazingly written, hilariously funny, brilliantly acted, & most of all, it’s got a truly beautiful love storyline. It’s an amazing tale of first love & finding that inexplicably once in a lifetime unconditional love……a pure unconditional love that is beyond forever, beyond always…..the kind of love that has no age, no limit, & no death. It makes you ponder that, indeed, fate controls who walks into your life but you decide who you let walk out, who you let stay, & who you refuse to let go. Such a sweet & adorable love story! Absolutely loved my Koong koong da couple! I’m missing them already!

    Shin Ha Kyun & Jang Nara were incredibly AWESOME playing their roles! Both gave nothing but STELLAR performances. They, most certainly, put the ROM & the COM into their roles with such flair & perfection……I couldn’t have asked for more, seriously! Just gotta add, Jang Nara once again was just so amazing when she did all the melo parts especially the last two episodes. I was blown away! Seriously, when she is in that zone where she is in pain, loss, utterly empty, & sobs……you really feel her raw emotions…….you feel it in your core. She has a way of evoking strong feelings within you that really tears your heart out & rips it in shreds! And the moment she pulls you in, you’re totally roped in, that you cannot help but cry with her & when you do, you simply cannot stop crying. She’s absolutely an amazing actress! I’m just so proud of her & I love her to bits!

    I’m hoping Shin Ha Kyun & Jang Nara work again together. They look soooo fantastic together, I just love watching them on screen. Mr. Back holds a wealth of adorably sweet OTP moments that just scream CHEMISTRY to me! Love my Koong koong da couple soooo much!

    I’d like to give a HUGE shout-out to the whole Mr. Back Team! Excellent job, everybody! Special mention to my newly found favorite writernim, Choi Yoon Jung………for making my holiday season more complete……Kamsahamnida! And for giving us Jang Nara fans, the greatest gift of seeing her act twice this 2014……..Neomu neomu kamsahamnida, MBC!

    There you are! I’ve been checking this thread for your post. I guess you’re having holiday hangover? Great post by the way! Did you watch the MBC Drama Awards 2014? I’ve seen some but no English subs out yet. Me too, I was tearing up as she got emotional! Didn’t get what she was saying but I could feel her warmth & sincerity! I’m so very proud of her too! What a way to end her 2014! She truly deserves all the awards she got. And me too, neomu neomu saranghae, Jang Nara!

    Ep 2 was extremely funny. Choi Go’s performance tonight reminded me of Jim Carrey, an American Actor. He has a crazy personality like that and same for some of the films he has been in. .

    Rose Says:

    Shin Ha Kyun – looks like Cat In The Hat, Dr.Seuss. And as I said before Jim Carrey – U.S. Actor.

    DeeAn Says:

    For me its not such an interesting drama. The storyline is good, but I think the lead actor too old to be the 34’s man character. (so annoying.. Hiiks T.T) I wonder it would be interesting if the lead actor Is cha seung won
    The acting of Jang Na ra was too flat T.T
