So after a nice break to focus on other things, I was reading up on some dramas that were coming up for new year, including this one. So, let me just shut up because I am going to go in full depth with this drama in my final review. This tells the story of a young woman, who through a discovery, is able to turn back time with a watch she found as a little girl. Unfortunately, the watch comes with repercussions: every time it is used, she ages. By the time she is in elementary school, it looks like she should be in jr. Hye-ja lives her life to the fullest, her dream of becoming an announcer keeps her ambitions alive and hopeful. She has friend and family that she loves and would do anything for. That is until one day, when 25 year old Hye-ja loses her father to a car accident, she makes the decision to use the watch, not caring about the consequences, in order to get her father back. She is able to achieve that, but in return, she ages dramatically, causing her to lose time.

However, Hye Ja has a secret. From a young age, Hye Ja experienced something magical happen to her when she picked up a watch by the beach, which gave her the ability to travel back in time.

A girl who can travel through time meets a man who lives a torpid life. Kim Hye Ja is a bright and positive year-old woman who wishes to become an announcer. One day, she gains the ability to exploit time and from there, is involved in a complicated timeline as a year-old. Lee Joon Ha is a man who wishes to become a reporter.
The beloved JTBC drama has a heartbreaking beautifully written story. It masks itself as something but then knocks you off when it reveals itself to be something completely different. So the story is similar to time-travel, at least this is how it presents itself to the audience.
