The interesting part is Min Joon changes job and registers for his death every 10 years. I wonder why people run away from him or report him to the police when he used his power to save others. It is so cool that he can stop time whenever he wants. He uses it to save Song Yi or show his love when he does not want her to know or to delete a love message he accidentally sent. If it is me, I would rather make friends with magical beings. Perhaps if I really meet one, I will also run away?Haha. His main magical abilities include stopping time, making things move without touching, teleporting, controlling lights and hearing things far away. If I can choose one, I will prefer teleporting. As my house is a long distance from school, I really want to be able to teleport. It will save time and the energy for walking. I also do not have to squeeze into packed public transports. I will also choose like Min Joon to live a short but meaningful human life than to lead a long but lonely alien life.
After the end of each episode, there are actually hidden scenes at the so called trailer part which one should not miss to get a better understanding of the drama.
Why you should watch: The plot is fresh with romance+fantasy+historical to present+action elements. Every moment seems perfect and I was “chasing” (watching faster than it can be produced) after each episode one by one. Kim Soo Hyun is quite good at acting sad scenes (in every drama) and Jun Ji Hyun makes scenes funny with her exaggerated acting. Both add icing on the cake, making this drama a success. The fact that Min Joon can get heart attacks (ep9,16,19) when his blood is mixed with human’s despite his magical abilities makes it more interesting.
