Han Tae-Joo (Jung Kyung-Ho) leads a crime investigation team. He has experienced a rapid rise in his career and he trusts data over people. While investigating a serial murder case, he has an accident. When Han Tae-Joo wakes up, he finds himself in the winter of 1987. He does not know why, but he is now a detective appointed to work at a police station in a small city. To get back to the present day, Han Tae-Joo tries to solve a serial murder case.

Cool! I always liked the original with the wonderful John Simm.

Sounds like Tunnel except the main character goes back to the past this time around.

Speaking of Tunnel, I just recently watch it and I find it terrible. I heard good reviews about the drama when it was aired but I honestly lose a few brain cells while watching Episode 10 the other day lol.

I know the drama is bad when I solve the case faster than the police in the drama. I dont know it is because I have watch too many crime dramas but Kwangho and Sungjae's deduction and investigation skills are pretty awful as police officers. :(

Have you seen Stranger/Forest of Secrets?

Yes. Its practically the best written script I have ever seen in any language tbh. I was in awe with how great is the details, the editing and how layered is the characters. :D

I wish they release the official DVD of it since its rare will you find a drama with the same quality.

I knoooow it's an absolute masterpiece, I loved it so so so much. I can't wait for season 2, I hope they all come back for it! Signal and Voice are both really good too - tunnel was just.. generic tv I didn't even bother with it.

Yes, it is indeed a masterpiece! Its one of a rare occasion which I yearn for second season since it is just sooo good. From the script, to the editing to how colorful are the characters, I was just in complete awe on how one show can have so much quality.

Signal is one of my faves too. While I fond Voice pretty average but the hottest serial killer Kim Jaewook just upped the show with his appearance lol so I have no complain. :P

Have you watch Circle? I considered it as one of the best Kdramas of 2017 as well. I love how misleading the show are in everything. ^^

Yeah I think the best part about Voice was the serial killer tbh Kim Jaewook did an amazing job

I haven't seen it actually! Thank you I'll give it a go!
