The Pharma 5 Watch Guide!

Best Time To Watch:

With its light-vibe and comedic timing, you could finish this drama in one day if you started early but it’ll definitely give a great night’s laugh to unwind after a long day’s work.

Prescribed For:

R E C O V E R Y! Yes. Use this Drama as a get out a sadness free card. Although it has some touchingly deep moments,it’s still light enough to cheer up your mood after an intense drama.

Side Effects:

Though the premise is common and is heavily used by other dramas, I still wanted more episodes to binge, and am still thinking about the aftermath of their decisions and what could’ve been.

Cast & Chemistry:

it took a lot of versatility to play each character two ways, but with a cast of heavy hitters who are as brilliant as this one, they pulled it off like the pros that they are. The acting in the past and future both connected well.

Addiction Level:

3.5 pills! The way it narrates like a relatable slice-of-life styled drama, you could easily lose sight of time and watch without breaks. (bathroom included)
