Nice To Meet You Summary
Same place, different time.
“What does it matter if we have a 70-year age difference?”
Jinha, an office worker who is traumatized from the bullying in her past, receives a mysterious message from the future…
A time slip story of fantasy and romance transcending time and space.Manta.net
Nice To Meet You is a really interesting love story, starting with an email conversation.
It’s quite interesting to see how the romance grows across time and space.
Initially I was really curious with what the guy is doing. First I thought he was an alien, but then things start becoming clearer.
I’m really rooting for the two of them, despite the obvious distance.
Our female lead suffers from having been bullied at school, but she becomes a stronger person eventually.
I can totally relate to her insecurities, but it’s also really nice when she finally toughens up. When she finally stands up to her manager I’m cheering loudly for her!
The relationship between our main characters is done via messages only, at least to a beginning. When Jinha, the female lead, is in danger our male lead breaks the rules.
He intervenes, and he does it on multiple occasions. You see, he’s practically observing Jinha to the point of madness and it’s clear he has some feelings for her.
Not enough to cause a break between Jinha and her boyfriend, but enough to care deeply about her.
Honestly, he seems like a really sweet guy and cares deeply about our beloved female lead.
The story doesn’t really delve into the issues of the future or what exactly has happened. I’m feeling like that may or may not be a good idea, simply because this is a love story.
Our focus shouldn’t be too much on the future and what happens there. Yet, it would be nice to be able to see more what has happened and how it has shaped our male lead.
One thing I found extra adorable is the “date” they have together.
Jinha is going around doing stuff in her world and time, sending photos to the guy. It’s like they’re on a date, despite the distance.
Final thoughts: Ignoring the time travel aspect, the story is extremely cute and honestly is just a long-distance romance saga. I absolutely love it and I highly recommend you read this.
