It’s probably safe now to assume that the upcoming K-version of In Time With You will be completely different than the original. I didn’t love the original so it’s fine with me, but I think those who did might want to skip The Time I Loved You unless one goes in with an open mind with the wholesale reinvention. I’m not saying changing up an adaptation is good or bad, that’s a discussion for another day, but for this particular drama it appears most people looking forward to it loved the original so having it be so different in character, execution, and vibe may turn the watch experience into one dominated by criticism solely by the changes. I’m going to see if this version works better for me but so far the early sneak peeks leave me wanting. The drama released the first narrative preview this weekend and it’s not great off the bat. If I didn’t know this was the K-version of ITWY, or if Ha Ji Won was not the lead, there might not even be the urge to check it out.
