Yoon Hae-Joon (Kim Dong-Wook) started his career at a broadcasting station as a local news reporter.

He is calm and straightforward as a journalist and kind to people in his personal life.


Baek Yoon-Young (Jin Ki-Joo) dreamed of becoming a writer, but, to support herself, she works at a publishing company. She is under a lot of stress because of her job and she sometimes takes it out on her mother. One day, Baek Yoon-Young faces a shocking case that changes her life.


Yoon Hae-Joon and Baek Yoon-Young somehow both travel back in time to the year 1987.

Their goals seem completely unrelated, but they soon realize that their objectives are connected.

This kinda gives me the Back to the Future vibes, because of the car :laugh:

Hahaha that's what I felt too plus her parents were involved!



I'm glad Episode 5 they started telling each other about their intentions of staying in the 80s. I was getting a little impatient of them concealing the facts when they could totally help each other out. After all, they both came from the future, they only have each other. However, Hae Joon didn't reveal all of what he knew to Yoon Young.


Though from below pre-release, he's finally told her he was one of the victims. Ok, baby step but at least it's being revealed.


Episode 6 Pre-release preview


I'm very curious as to who the real killer is. It had to be someone we know because it needs to impactful.

Gosh! Just when you thought the original 3 suspects are free from being suspicious, and we have a NEW suspect, it cycles back to them again! Ko Mi Sook, of course, remain just as suspicious but it'd be difficult for her size to kill the first victim, who is much bigger than her and she is unlikely able to tie her up etc...

Episode 10


OMFG! I swear, when I saw the pink headband, immediately I thought "Sh*t, don't tell me Hae Joon's mother is Ko Mi Sook!" but if the show really want to screw with him/us, she would be his mother! And then it was the Bong Bong Teahouse's lady boss that came out. Mmm k, yes, it makes more sense that maybe it is her because she's older and not a teenager. *Breathe a sigh of relief*


... only to be hit in the head again! Because Ko Mi Sook wore the exact SAME headband and came out of the cinema. &@#^$#^(&@#@ I'm 99.99999% sure it is her now because from the back, whoever that is, her hair is straight not curly like the lady boss. Plus it would make a lot of sense that Ko Mi Sook wouldn't want to be a mother that young and be tied down!!! 


Did Ko Mi Sook kill her own son? She may not know he was her son in the first place! But the stake and impact would be soooo much greater and entertaining if in the end it is the son catching his birth mother as the murderer. Talk about makjang!


Arrgggh. Anyway, whatever the ending is... just gimme. I'm ready. Gosh, we have 6 more episodes to go!
