Those hesitant on SBS Fri-Sat sci-fi drama Alice can safely get back on the train now. The drama is not going to awful route of making leads Joo Won and Kim Hee Sun in any universe romantically inclined towards each other. She’s his mother in one universe and basically she’s like a mom/older sister to him in every universe is my take. Kwak Shi Yang is delivering enough romance on his own exuding the anguished daddy and husband vibes to his family that he left exposed to danger. This week’s episode 11 and 12 got the story back on track to reveal the Teacher behind the danger and also why everyone wants the stupid prophesy book and the last page of it. The boy who is Jin Gyeom is fated to stop time travel so those who want the ability to time travel to continue are out there to prevent him from doing so. The twist with Detective Ko isn’t really one since Train did the same earlier this year but I did love the reverse twist at the end of episode 12 previews which was flirted with in Train as well but not followed through on. What will Jin Gyeom do when he’s both savior and slayer and not sure which one is in the “right”.
