Joining a group of time travel based dramas, The Best Hit manages to separate itself through a heartwarming group of friends and family while successfully juggling the various storylines.
The premise seems a bit off the wall - Yu Hyeon Jae is a popular 90s idol who time travels to present day where he meets a group of youth struggling to make their dreams a reality. He gets tangled up in their lives while trying to figure out what happened in the past. Mix in the music industry, some romance and lots of comedy and you get The Best Hit.
The show takes a little bit of time to find its footing and introduce all the cast and characters. But once it does it becomes an enjoyable watch. Yun Si Yun is the best part of the show, taking Heyon Jae, with all his silly quirks and running with it. That's not to say the rest of the cast lags behind, but it feels as if they shine partly thanks to great character writing and partly thanks to acting.
At 32 half hour episodes (or 16 hours of air time), there's a little bit of dragging in the middle but the plot stays relatively entertaining. A definite recommend for anyone who needs a good laugh or feel-good drama.
