When netizens were asked about the best and worst time travel K-Dramas they’ve ever watched, there was no competition on which two took the crown for the latter.
The first K-Drama viewers were very vocal about disliking was Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun‘s fantasy drama The King: Eternal Monarch.
A modern-day Korean emperor passes through a mysterious portal and into a parallel world, where he encounters a feisty police detective.
The 2020 romantic fantasy was promising until the time-traveling created plot holes and confusion that disoriented viewers.
Unfortunately, viewers experienced similar issues with Kim Hee Sun and Joo Won‘s fantasy drama Alice.
It’s the year 2050, and Alice makes time travel possible. We first go back in time to see how it came to be.
The drama fell apart so much that netizens claimed the last four episodes were a complete mess and gave the impression that the writers were just as confused as the viewers.
Despite both K-Dramas having talented actors as leads, they couldn’t save the “nonsense” storylines—especially for those centered around time travel.
