Not for Joe: Sunday 11 a.m.


Do not boast about tomorrow,

for you do not know what a day may bring

[Proverbs 27:

Static time machine?

In order to create

an artificial blackhole,

we need at least a 100 LHCs

The LHC project costs $9 billion

If there are a 100...

Even a time machine

has to be reasonably priced

I'm just a businessman

I've seen this before

It's the Great Blue Hole

in Marshall Islands

Russia's core energy

research lab is located nearby

It may look state-owned,

but I'm the owner

A bad M&A deal,

might I add

Gravity works differently

in the blue hole

When particles collide in there,

it has the effect of

2-300 times the LHC

In other words...

It'll cost a fraction of creating

artificial black hole on land

Using a worm hole inside

the black hole to time travel

is a known theory

Worm hole is so sensitive that

even the tiniest speck could

shut down its entrance

In order to prevent that,

we need 'negative energy',

and we developed a technology

to transform it from regular energy

Using core energy,

a bad deal, as you say,

to sustain the worm hole

Your wife died 2 years ago

Died of cancer

Is your time travel research

related to her death?

To get the cure

from the future perhaps?

Cancer is probably cured

in the future

And stem cell technology

may be perfected too

Allow me to take you there,

where such technology exists

Walk proudly on your feet

Time travel... is possible

Mr. President wants the time machine

to be called 'Trotsky'

Things would've been

different for Russia,

if Trotsky came into power

instead of Stalin

3 years later

I have seen the future!

Remember all those

pop girl bands?

Girls' Generation,

Miss A, Suji...

I've seen the future

I know I can never

be with them

Yuna got married last year

Before I can soak it in,

Suji got engaged

Suji, please be happy!

You're so right about that, Doc

My accuracy haunts me

I hate artificial UV rays,

I want to feel the real sun

That's the natural light

It amplifies concentrated light

from the surface

Don't belittle me

'cos I don't have Ph. D

Know why I didn't get it?

Because my name is Doc

If I had it,

I'd be Doc Doc!

Imagine the repercussion!

Maybe I should get it...

I wonder why they built

this underwater

Because nuclear fusion requires

cooling system

So they just built it in the water

Russian way of thinking

If we didn't have this,

there'd be no Trotsky project

And we wouldn't be together

That's one way to look at it

There's no 4th string

I requested classic guitar string,

but they sent acoustic one

It's Christmas

Now that I think about it,

we've been together for 7 years

It was Christmas then too

Been that long?

I remember crashing

a KAIST University party

That night,

you dropped to the ground

and cried

You took advantage

of a crying girl

I wonder if there are

anymore bawling girls

HQ wants full evac in 2 days

Come on...

They can't wait another month?

They waited 3 years

I barely managed to

get you the extension

But couldn't stop

the Russia staff from leaving

And the contract renewal?

Well, I have to talk to

the HQ further,

but not likely...

We succeeded, almost!

You call traveling only 1 day

in the future a success?

The Wrights' first flight

was only 36.5m!

And first radio wave

was through a wall!

This is only the tip

of the iceberg

And we accomplished

all this in 3 years

In the end, those are

just simulation data


What are you doing?

Consulting a friend...

about our simulation data,

what's up?

You have a friend?

So immature

What'll happen to us now?

Evac crew will arrive in 2 days

So is it a vacation

or a full withdraw?

Whatever it is...

think of it as HQ's treat to let you

spend Christmas on the surface

Einstein said once,

"I understand the world,

but not why it is the way it is"

I don't understand you fully,

but I trust you

Let's do a test run tomorrow

Then have a vacation

with fuzzy feeling of success

After the Russians left

last month,

core energy was neglected

There's no telling

whether it'll work properly

Moon's taking care of it

It's still dangerous

Humans will be in it

We're not sending

a monkey into the orbit

This is the only way to

renew the contract

- Then I'll take Young-eun's place

- Of course you can't!

Coca-Cola CEO and SVP

never fly together

You'll time travel to tomorrow

for 15 minutes?

Core energy can sustain

the worm hole only for 15

I'll write it up upon return

and then evacuate

How can you verify that

you were in the future?

How about bringing back

CCTV feeds?

I don't think

it's an ethical method,

but you decide

what we should do

Then take a hatched mayfly,

and take it to tomorrow

Okay, it's settled

So long since I last went up

You had a surface assignment

last month

Sure, but it was an overnight

in Vladivostok

What shall we do on our vacation?

Come with me somewhere


Curiosity killed the cat

Will it succeed?

You can see the future, Doc

I only see my future

For example, we'll never ever

become good friends


Why does a sock always

Disappear in the washer?

Well, you see...

There's a black hole

in the washer

The time machine

I'm trying to make,

uses the same principle


Or not?

It's the renewal contract

with the president's signature

When you leave,

I'll put it in your cabinet,

and let it open in 24 hours

Go to tomorrow and sign it,

and then come back

Kill 2 birds with 1 stone

Better than the mayfly method

May God be with you


It's the uniform

Texture's nice

Come on

You got 15 minutes

Take care of the lab

Don't worry, even if it fails,

I'll send Young-eun back

Stop saying nonsense

If she comes back,

it means it worked

Think about that

Anyway, I trust you

You got 15 minutes

Do not go over

You'll need this more than me

Why did he give a cross

to a Buddhist?

I saw dad in my dreams

The basis of this research

was from him

The lost sock

in the washer theory?

Still believe that

he's in the future?

Main hall roof closed

Tomorrow's waiting

Trotsky anti-gravity

shield activated!

Artificial blackhole formed

Negative energy detected

Worm hole stabilized

Got an e-mail from Dr. Jung!

From the future?

It's a scheduled e-mail

That's what I thought

I got it too

Young-eun, you okay?

Did it work?


Let's go!

By the time you see this,

I should be in the future

When you decided to leave

med school for physics,

your mom scolded me

over the phone

Bad influence or something

Anyway, you were

my private student,

but you felt like

my teacher at times

That didn't come out right

Without your research,

we wouldn't be here

Enjoy your 1st vacation

in 3 years with Young-eun

Merry Christmas!

And to you too!

He's never sent me an e-mail,

but he sent a greetings card?

I can't get used to this

He must've felt so nervous

before the test run

Let's all write him back!
