However, some netizens have raised questions on how the series’ time travel theme will be able to bypass one of the 20 new radio and television guidelines issued by the NRTA, which states that there must be “reasonable scientific explanation”.

Aside from those questions, many fans of the series have opposed to a remake especially only a few months after the original ended. Many people felt it was too soon, including Alice Ko, when she heard about the news. Fans also felt that no one would be able to surpass the original and produce the same flavor. Alice Ko was asked about the rumors and relayed a message through her manager to ETtoday, saying, “It’s very easy for remakes to be compared. There will be a lot of stress.”
