Korean Drama Review: Answer Me/Reply 1988

reply 1988

It’s the end of May, and I still don’t have a post yet! So, I’m going to make this review my post for the month. It will be quick and kind of lazy. I began writing it at the end of January when the drama initially ended, but I got too busy with school, so I didn’t finish it. I’ve still been pretty busy, so I’m going to just make this review short.

I began watching this drama not knowing anyone in the main cast. That is, until I made the connection that the main character was Hyeri from Girl’s Day. I’ve only listened to a few Girl’s Day songs, and largely, the group’s music style is not my style, but I do remember Hyeri standing out to me because I thought she was absolutely gorgeous and because I loved her smoky-type voice. It took me a while to begin watching this and then to finish it because the episodes were so long and the wait between them would always make me want to watch them less. But, over the holidays, I decided to watch all the episodes (except for the last two which didn’t come out until after the holidays), and boy am I glad I did. This has become my second favorite out of the Reply dramas–1997, naturally, being the first.
