My Thoughts

Kim Jung Hyun reminds me of the smiling Alberto in Crash Landing On You. His charming smile will make you smile back at him. This two-episode drama is worth your while. I don’t want to get into specific details as I don’t want to spoil it for you.

Fate. Fate means the development of events beyond a person’s control. There are things that happen in our life that we can’t explain. It may be about love or other things. We would sometimes question our beliefs or faith because of these events. But after everything and the time is right, we would be able to realize the reason why.

The story shows what fate means. I love the simplicity of how it was portrayed. It shows a fantasy story about time-traveling mixed with reality. It also shows how things that mean so much to a person make him fight and survive. Love does not bring food to the table, but it is the reason why we work hard to bring food to feed the people we love.

If you’re looking for a short and a feel-good drama, this one is for you. You can easily finish it in two hours.

Tell us your thoughts. We would really love to hear it.
