REPLY 1988 : WHO IS DEOK SUN’S FUTURE HUSBAND?

Holla! I am in the middle of holiday right now~ So, what content that I will post here? It is REPLY 1988! If you have been watching this drama from the very beginning until now, you will absolutely know why it becomes a hot topic, right? Like the another Reply 0r Answer Me drama(s) [I haven’t watched Reply 1994, but I really love Reply 1997], an annoying issue is who is the female lead’s future husband, that we will know in last episode. I even remember when I waited for 16th episode of Reply 1997, I was really curious like I could bite some people, and when the preview released, I was like OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG, MY SHIP SAILED! Now, move to Reply 1988, I should make it straight that I am in #TEAMJUNGHWAN (eventhough at first I thought “omg, is it the real male lead?” HAHAHA), but as I watch it every week, my mind changes “Ryu has a unique and cute face”.

Why I like even love Reply or Answer Me drama(s)? Because, it has a detailed plot that really happens in daily life. It is not only about love, but about out closest circumstances like best friend, school, family, even neighborhood. This series is not like let’s say, a love story when someone suddenly comes to our life and we will love each other deeply. Beside that, Reply shows us many phenomenons that happen in that year, such as we can see first generation of idol group, pager, etc. in 1997 or coal bricket, beeper, etc. in 1988. I don’t know whether are those the real things or not since I am not from Korea, but at least it can reflect those periods daily life. Actually, it will be a very long explanation if I should tell you why I like this series. One important highlight of Reply 1988 is we can see neighborhood-ness (?) and family issue here. How every family member should care each other, also how every neighbor can care each other too even they have different economy capability. Don’t hope for any kiss scene or something like that because the storyline doesn’t show us romanticism like other drama (even there is no kiss scene between lead actors s far, except kiss scenes between Seon Woo and Bo Ra and Taek’s dream about Deoksun). But, this is the best drama for me in 2015 beside School 2015: Who are You, maybe I should watch Reply 1994 too! 

Hopefully my ship will sail, not like Tae Kwang and Eun Bi :”

This is not an analytical post about who is deok sun’s future husband because I will let it go, I like both Junghwan and Taek eventhough Junghwan is better for Deok Sun. So you can check the scoreboard for every candidate in DramaFever.

Gu Family Book/Kang Chi, The Beginning

You guys surely already know this drama, I think. Because it is so popular and probably will be the next national drama. I love the first episode ❤ it’s so heart-touching, and the plot goes so fast. The second episode makes me afraid to watch it, because it is so tragic :(.

The main stars of this drama of course are Lee Seung Gi and Suzy, and the will appear on the third episode. Yeay! It is tomorrow :). Lee Seung Gi is so handsome with his long hair haha, and Suzy, well she is so beautiful even acts and dresses like a man. In this story, she is a martial master!

Ah ya, the another reason why you should watch this drama is the soundtrack! The lyrics are in english, sung by Yisabel. A ballad song, like the genre of the drama : mellow. I rarely find a soundtrack in english lyrics, so I’m quite surprised with this.

Honestly, I dislike Seo Hwa here, in my opinion she is just so selfish and ungrateful. Poor Wal Ryung :”

Happy Watching!
