Alice: Best Scenes
Park Jin-gyeom finally finds the younger version of his mother. He can’t help but hug her tightly. At that time, Yoon Tae-yi is barely dating his father and barely doing any research about time travel. He misses her very much, but she has no idea about this “perverted” guy.
Even after seeing his mother for the second time, Park Jin-gyeom can’t help but cry every time he sees her.
The time travel plot is a very tricky plot. If the screenwriter and director can direct the plot perfectly, then viewers can understand the story behind the convoluting scenes. However, Alice has some serious plot holes that make viewers confused. Some scenes are left unanswered, and some characters were left without any end. Spoiler Alert! It turns out that the person who killed Park Jin-gyeom’s mother is Park Jin-gyeom himself from a different future. The other Park Jin-gyeom believes that his suffering can end if he eliminates his mother or another version of himself.
