When I was watching it I was very hesitant as I am a huge Operation Daisakusen fan, but to be honest this really is a good drama. From what I remember of the Japanese drama Yamapi goes back to time and fixes points in the past – but doesn’t really do much (except for having Aragaki fall for him more) to the time stream. The thing that I really liked about this drama was the alternation of the time stream, meaning that whatever he does in the past does not only affect him and the female, but everyone else around them – which is the butterfly effect.
The characters are pretty original, though some of them remind me of the characters from the Japanese one – except Yoo Seung Ho, who managed to make this character his very own, and that is really a tough job to do.
I’ll stop talking now. Summing it up: a good remake with a good story and cast.
