A couple on the verge of divorce goes back in time to their days in college and gets the chance to live their life all over again.
When I was first introduced to this drama by a friend, I was really attracted by the concept of a couple going back in time to relive their college days. My expectations were quite high with this one despite my constant disappointments with Korean dramas. I was expecting this drama to tackle some pretty complex issues due to the concept of it and well, the drama went beyond what I expected.
The drama tackled many complex issues to do with marriage, love and relationships. Though I think the idea of youth has been romanticised a little too much. For some reason I relate way more with Jin Joo and Ban Do than with the others, and I’m only 23. The drama tackled these issues in such a mature and profound way, especially the way they dealt with Jae Woo’s and Bo Reum’s relationship. It wasn’t pumped with too much fluff nor was it overly dramatised unlike the way other dramas do. It was so sweet watching them struggle through the littlest things in their relationship yet knowing that they’d break up in the future. And I’m glad that they broke up for a legit reason instead of something small as with other “first love” type of relationships. It shows that even first loves aren’t as superficial and fragile as what most dramas seem to portray.
