YMMV / SAVE ME

Go To

For the BU, go here.

For The Notes, go here.

YMMV examples for the webcomic are:

  • Accidental Innuendo: From Episode 7, "Can I stay here? Just from tonight?". The timing of the line and his and Namjoon's expressions and body language during the scene made some people's imaginations run wild.
  • Awesome Art: Even though the art is pretty stylized, it managed to adapt the appearances of the BTS members to the art-style so well that they're very easily recognizable.
  • Funny Moments:

    • In Episode 5, Seokjin grabs Jungkook away from the hooded men, leaves him with Namjoon and runs off to save Yoongi. Jungkook asks Namjoon what's happening, but it turns out Seokjin this time didn't even bother with an explanation before dragging Namjoon into his car. Namjoon is just as confused.
    • In the same episode, Namjoon asks Tae if he's seen Yoongi. Tae says he has... in his dreams. Namjoon just gives him a weird look.
  • Iron Woobie: Seokjin finds that his friends' lives have become a mess and feels tremendously guilty over it. Then he goes back in time and has to watch a friend die in front of him - twice. He then decides to carry the weight of his friends' fates on his shoulders, doing whatever it takes to save them. In Episode 4, after he saves Jungkook, he hugs him in tears, asking him where he's been. Caught in a "Groundhog Day" Loop (with each loop lasting between a day and a month depending on when he fails), he's forced to watch his friends die or get into accidents over and over again, which evidently starts gradually taking a toll on him... and yet, he keeps on going.

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Tae drawing an X on Jin with spray paint in the "RUN" music video becomes even more ominous (and sadder) after reading this webcomic, as in the last chapter the former accidentally murders the latter.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • Once Seokjin gains the ability to remember previous rewinds in Chapter 3, the very first thing he does is to confront the customer who was humiliating Namjoon and look for Jungkook.
    • From Episode 4, Seokjin yanking Jungkook away from the edge of the rooftop and hugging him in tears of relief.
    • From Episode 7, Jungkook quietly lying down to listen to Yoongi playing the piano in the flashback. Too bad it doesn't last...
      • From the same scene, Yoongi protecting Jungkook from the teacher - which makes the consequences all the sadder.
    • In Episode 13, the frustration of the time loop finally breaks Seokjin, making him refuse to do anything for an entire cycle (or more)... until, unexpectedly, he hears a knock on the door: it's Taehyung, brought there by his dreams. This is what brings Jin the strength to keep going - and it's the first time we see him smile genuinely in the present.
      Seokjin: Each and every one of you makes me want to give it all up... and when I think I couldn't possibly fall any lower, you pull me back on my feet.
      • The boys finally, finally reuniting. And Jin watching with clear joy as his friends, all alive and well, talk and interact with each other again.
  • Memetic Mutation:

    • You broke fuck! Explanation 
    • "And that's how Namjoon went to jail." Explanation 
  • Moe: Jungkook. His status as the youngest and The Woobie, as well as the way he's drawn (big eyes, almost perpetually melancholic expression), it all can make him very endearing to readers, and make them wish that nothing bad ever happens to him.
  • Moment of Awesome:
    • Seokjin confronting the asshole customer from the gas station in Episode 3. He genuinely looks intimidating.
      Customer: I asked you a question! Who the hell are you?
      Seokjin: And I said, take this, and just leave.
    • Jin pulling Jungkook away from the edge of the rooftop at the last moment, saving him in Episode 4.
    • Breaking Jimin out of the hospital, finally getting all seven to reunite.
  • The Woobie:
    • Taehyung has a clear Heroic BSoD by the time Seokjin finds him, being arrested for killing his abusive father. His very first scene in the Prologue has him in tears, staring in shock at what he just did. We find out that he lives in a poor, abusive home, with an Alcoholic Dad and Missing Mom. He also has vivid dreams of the events of previous loops, which fill him with fear. The last cycle we see doesn't go well for him, accidentally stabbing Seokjin while the latter tried to stop him from killing his father - we last see him crying while cradling Seokjin's dead body.
    • Jungkook, the youngest of the seven boys. He has an uncaring family and seemingly has no friends other than the main group. 2 years after the group's separation, he's alone and doesn't seem to care about anything, with the person who used to be his closest friend (who got expelled for defending Jungkook) now falling into depression and pushing him away. As we find out in Episode 3, Jungkook ends up committing suicide in the original loop.
    • Yoongi sleeps alone in run down motels and has become The Alcoholic, spending the little cash he has in drowning his sorrows, causing a scene in a bar by rambling about his Fantasy-Forbidding Father. When Seokjin first saves him from suicide, he calls Jin out for dragging him back to the hell he's living. And we find out that 2 years ago,, he was expelled for fighting back against a Sadist Teacher who beat Jungkook, and it's implied he was kicked out from home afterwards.
    • Jimin suffered a traumatic (yet-to-be-explained) incident in a Garden Arboretum as a child. Because of it, he has seizures triggered by seeing things related to the place and the incident. He spent more time in the hospital than at school, and often had to change schools to the point of never making friends. After he finally made friends with the other boys during a year, a seizure sent him back to the hospital, never seeing his friends until now. Turns out his emotionally abusive parents, who constantly treat him as a burden, forced him to stay at the hospital for 2 whole years so they don't have to bother with him, which has only helped make his mental illness even worse.
