A man with a special power meets a woman who is unaffected by it.

Moon Joon Woo (Kim Hyun Joong) has the ability to stop time. He leads a lonely existence due to his special ability.

When he needs a place to live, Joon Woo rents a basement apartment in an old building. His new landlord is Kim Sun Ah (Ahn Ji Hyun), who despite being hardworking and a building owner is still financially struggling because all of her money is going to pay off her father’s debt.

Joon Woo is surprised to discover that when he stops time, Sun Ah is unaffected by it and is able to freely move around and “live.” Will Sun Ah give Joon Woo a new appreciation of time and his fluid life?

“When Time Stopped” is a 2018 Korean drama series. It is Kim Hyun Joong’s comeback drama after “Inspiring Generation” in 2014.
