Operation Proposal MV
Do you have any regrets?
Operational Proposal begins with Baek Ho rushing to make it to his best friend's wedding on time. He has been friends with her for 20 years, yet could never muster up the courage to confess his feelings for her. Likewise, Yi Seul liked Baek Ho for a long time, but was scared of ruining their friendship by admitting it.
Baek Ho barely keeps it together as he watches the woman he loves marry another man. And not just any man, his high school baseball coach. After the wedding, Baek Ho reads a letter Yi Seul wrote that he found by mistake. He realized that she also loved him. Breaking down into tears, he desperately longs for a chance to go back in time and fix his mistake.
As if answering his prayers, a time conductor appears and grants Baek Ho his wish. He sends him back in time, giving him the opportunity to change his future. Will Baek Ho be the groom this time? Or will he still suffer the same fate? Or will he suffer an even worse fate? After all, it can be quite dangerous to tamper with the past like that. You never know what negative impact it can have on the future.
If you were in Baek Ho's shoes would you accept the offer to travel back in time?
It's Unlikely that You'll Marry Your First Love
The time conductor says that most people never end up with their first love. They marry their second love. Do you believe that this is true? And are we better off not marrying our first love?

Kang Baek Ho had a crush on Yi Seul from a young age, but never had the confidence or courage to ask her out.

Before he knows it 20 years has gone by, he still hasn't confessed, and the woman he loves is marrying another man. A time conductor gives him the opportunity to go back into the past and change his fate. However, he warns him that men do not change their ways so easily as he knows quite well.

STUCK IN their SPELL!!!
I'm enjoying this drama. I think the whole concept is to relate to its viewers in fairytale way. Doesn't watching this drama make you wonder to yourself also, "What if I can get that chance of going back in time?" No matter how happy you are about life and with whom at the moment, you KNOW you'd TAKE that chance to go back and change just that one little thing, and then wondering how LIFE would have been NOW 'IF'. *sigh* ... Hoping for a happy ending. Because in reality no one will get that chance. So as long as Kang Baek Ho does, I'm rooting for him all the way. AND I'm in <3 with this cast. They're hilarious, fun, and lovable.
I want to give what i couldn't give you then
Baek Ho doesn't have control about what happens in the end when he comes back from the past. The sole reason why he goes to the past was not to confess his love to Yin Seul, rather, he's goes back to GIVE Yin Seul what he couldn't give her at that time. I think people is overseeing the plot with operation confession from operation redemption... if you pay close attention they mention the topic regret loads of time. Thus Baek Ho does everything he could to do what he wouldn't regret anymore. I like the drama. Aside from the romance, he's also trying to redeem himself as a person who loves and plays baseball. Also i remember a child hood story about messing with time, i'm beginning to think there is going to be some huge consequences from messing with time, so i'm awaiting for that moment. Also there is another meaning in this show: Love comes from our greater significant, our friends, our family, and our mentors. LOVE LOVE LOVE. =D
I like a lot!
Really liking this so far, especially the main characters!! I hope it has a happy ending! I know some people get a little frustrated that he doesn't just come out and say his feelings, but you gotta realize that he doesn't want to ruin a lifelong friendship with his best friend... even the best of friends lose their friendship if they date and break up. So I like to think he's building a strong foundation so their love will last~ But I do look forward to when he'll have to man up and confess haha.
Please please plz give this drama a chance
Ok...So i've personally finished this series. I wouldn't go into detail coz I don't want to spoil it for new viewers. I do understand all the comments about this drama being very frustrating becoz it is. It really is... but come on, it's just meant to be. But I promise you that the last few episodes as well as lessons that you can learn from this drama will be more than enough to make up for all the tensions built. You'll become a fan and be thankful that you didn't give up on the drama. :) GL and cheers to all those who've finished this awesome piece. Let's start living life without regrets!!! It's never too late,..
Great Acting, but Bad Storywriting
Yoo Seung Ho is a phenomenal actor as he continues to portray very diverse roles, now as Kang Baek Ho. I've never seen Proposal Daikusen, but other people said that Operation Proposal has got nothing on it, and I guess I'm inclined to believe that, but the critics shouldn't drag down their superb acting from this sub-par story writing. In my opinion, any story with a time traveling theme will always have some sort of glitch with the concept and somehow end up confusing the audience, and it is certainly no exception here as the storyline is very well predictable after the first two episodes; Kang Baek Ho continues to travel back in time until he gets the girl but with a little twist I presume. However, I fell in love with all the characters such as Joo Tae Nam, and I'm even more amazed at Baek Ho's and Yi Seul's chemistry as BFFs... I really hope the story progresses more smoothly as the drama goes on, but as for right now, great acting, but bad storywriting.

So far, I am really enjoying this Korean drama. Yes, I did get annoyed during the first few episodes at times at both Baek Ho and Yi Seul. However, I can understand why it's so hard for them to confess. It's more difficult to date your best friend, because you run the risk of destroying that friendship for good. There's no guarantee you'll make it to the alter and stay happily married. In addition, Baek Ho grows in each episode and becomes closer and closer to achieving his dreams. I enjoy watching character learn and grow. I look forward to watching the new episodes when they are out!
