Unforgettable Scenes From The First 2 Episodes Of

KBS2’s “My Perfect Stranger” is getting stranger by the episode, but in the best way!

“My Perfect Stranger” is a new fantasy drama about the strange events that unfold when news anchor Yoon Hae Joon (Kim Dong Wook), who wants to uncover the truth behind a serial murder case from the past, runs into Baek Yoon Young (Jin Ki Joo), who wants to prevent her parents’ wedding. After getting stuck in the year 1987, the two realize that their goals may be connected.

From time-traveling to serial murder cases, the plot has been taking all kinds of twists and turns. Here are three major incidents from the first two episodes as we get ready for Episode 3:

Yoon Hae Joon’s fateful encounter with the retro time machine

After discovering a time machine by chance, Yoon Hae Joon takes a trip to the future out of curiosity. There, he witnesses his own death. He assumes that the person behind his death has something to do with the culprit of the 1987 serial murder case in the village of Woojungri, and so he takes off to the year 1987.

After arriving in the Woojungri of 1987, he befriends the people of the village and solves a drug case that occurs among the female high school students. With the people on his side, he creates a makeshift identity as a Korean teacher at Woojung High School. This allows him to travel back and forth in time and work on finding the culprit.

However, on one of his trips back to 1987, he gets into an accident with Baek Yoon Young, and the time machine gets broken. Because of this, the two get stuck in 1987.

The complicated situation surrounding Baek Yoon Young, 19-year-old Soon Ae, and Hee Seop

Baek Yoon Young, regardless of how she got there, is happy to be in 1987 because that means she is in her mother’s past. Ignoring the risks, she finds out where her mom lives and follows her around, eventually even running into her father, Hee Seop (Lee Won Jung).

Although Baek Yoon Young’s mother, Lee Soon Ae (Seo Ji Hye), is slightly scared of Yoon Young at first, the two grow closer. Baek Yoon Young makes it her mission to prevent her parents from getting married in the first place, which grows more difficult as Hee Seop falls in love with Soon Ae at first sight. We’ll have to see if Hee Seop listens to Baek Yoon Young’s warning to stay away from Soon Ae. This part of the plot has been bringing viewers a wave of nostalgia as it reminds us of our own memories with our parents.

Perfect endings for “My Perfect Stranger”

Just two episodes in, “My Perfect Stranger” has already made it known that each episode will have its own exquisite ending. The first episode showed the disparity in how Yoon Hae Joon and Baek Yoon Young react to the reality of being stuck in 1987: while Yoon Hae Joon is wrought with worry, Baek Yoon Young is ecstatic. The second episode set up how their individual narratives will play out in the year 1987, raising the question of whether it’ll be in their power to alter their fates.

Meanwhile, viewers have been reacting to the drama with comments like “The retro vibes are well-executed, including the color scheme that fits the times,” increasing expectations on how the series will further incite nostalgia.

The third episode of “My Perfect Stranger” will air on March 8 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
