[Drama 2015] Answer Me 1988 응답하라 1988

Recommended Posts

I usually post in shipper thread since the main threads seem to become biased towards majority ship but I want to give my arguments about TK so people won't think that this drama is not only about DS-JH, if you're JH ship, you can skip it..

Spoiler

Taek is an unique character that not many kdrama had.. He has many layers that so interesting to uncover.. The few recents episodes, they are focusing on developing and show how deep is his feeling towards DS. How precious DS is to him.. If some people thought that he notice JH feelings then you're wrong.. TK doesn't know yet and I'm kinda understand why JH do what he do.. 

On the other hand, JH character has already developed since the beginning and he's such a gem.. His interactions with his family are beyond compare.. Lovely and addicted..since there are many families and characters, it's time to others to be developed (so please stop being greedy)..

If you are talk about the main otp, then since when you are all decide that JH-DS are the main otp? based on what? Because they are the typical kdrama lead? Aniyo.. TK-DS become the bickering couple also and with the recent episodes the writer/pd built TK to become more mature and his behavior becomes more and more like the future hubby.. Based on previous reply? Don't you know that the writer seem to have otp that have brother-sister relationship couple and isn't more towards TK-DS? 

TK treats DS likes something precious and he cares so much.. She's his sun, who can put his smile back again after exhausting day.. And if you pay attention TK treats her so nice also.. Protecting him, always remember what she said, calming her when she's sad.. Almost the same with JH did to DS, the difference are TK is softer towards DS and TK world is not rotate around DS like JH.. TK has baduk and others things.. JH can't seem to moved on from DS (I smell CB)..

I am okay if JH is being the husband but I hate when people bashed other characters, I really enjoy the whole drama but the whole shipping things annoy me..so if the ship is not sailing smoothly, don't bash TK please..

It would be nice too if some people don't put down JH as a bad written character too. Even in JHxDS shipper thread no one bash Taek. Please don't over reacting. Everyone in main thread can show their own feeling and opinion. What we all need is good manner while post something.

I feel that what is different about R1988's characters are that all of them are so hard to hate and so easy to love. They were written in a multidimensional way that will make you so engaged with every layer that is slowly revealed! They feel much more human, and easier to relate to. I think that in R1994, the constancy of each character made it easier for people to pick on them individually, but in R1988 that is clearly not the case. I rarely ever see people bashing the main leads in this thread, probably out of 10 pages there will be 1 post.. but that's it, compared to R1994, it was like arguing back and forth every damn time. Irrelevant to the OTP because i think TK is not endgame, TK is a very interesting character to me,  because he always shows us unexpected sides of him. At first he's only cute and kiddy, but then we see him smoking, then cursing, then who knows what else he'll be up to! He reminds me of those cool mysterious anime guys.. LOL

In other shipper also we never talk bad things about JH and I never said that JH as a bad written.. I love JH, I find him adorable.. Yes we indeed need good manners.. What's wrong if I want to say somethings about TK? Isn't this thread has to be both side? Can't TK ship has the right to say somethings? If we can't then i don't mind to stay in shipper thread

Article: 'Reply' Ryu Jun Yeol, bitter feelings over seeing Hyeri and Park Bogum's picture

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+789, -21] Junghwan-ah, learn about relationships from your hyung...... please

2. [+797, -50] The scriptwriter is cutting back on his screentime right now because they're going to give all the screentime to him for the next four weeks, right? Why in the world is he getting such little screentime... He's getting even less than Doryong ㅠㅠ Ah, it's frustrating..

3. [+568, -31] Jungpal ㅜㅜ seems like he's holding back because he knows Taek likes Duksun ㅜㅜ I wish Jungpal would show his feelings more

4. [+79, -1] At the pace things are going now, they're going to have to extend the drama by four more episodes

5. [+77, -5] I'm starting to understand why everyone said that the scriptwriter starts to lack in her skills as her drama reaches its end ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+64, -0] It seems that Duksun and Junghwan won't get together until after they've gone through their share of relationships and then finally realizing that they were each other's first loves. Lee Mi Yeon talked about her husband's past about how many people he dated... seems that the timing isn't right now so they just move on and then get back together as adults to finally get married.

7. [+52, -10] I don't know why people are selfishly telling Junghwan to be more honest with his feelings. Don't you understand the situation that he's in? He can't just lose his friend over a woman. You can't expect him to be okay with losing him just to conquer her.

8. [+50, -4] There's a lot of talk about how little screentime he's getting but Taek didn't get much at first either and each episode focuses on a different character so I'm sure it'll be Junghwan focused soon enough.

1. [+876, -14] Who cast these people...? Who cast all of the children of Ssangmundong. I want to give them an award. How have they managed to bring together such different charms?

2. [+791, -24] "I feel like I'm going to die without her" Ha... Heedong-ah... ♥

3. [+742, -142] Do the producers not like Jungpal... why is his screentime.. so little.... ah...

4. [+85, -5] I don't know how the drama is going to handle Taek in the few episodes that it has left. He lives off of sleeping pills, he still misses his mom, his dad's going to talk about him remarrying soon, he loves his crush to the point where he feels like he will die without her, but then he'll find out she actually likes his friend..... What're they going to do? Please don't turn him into a pity character. And don't make him all 'cool with it' in the end either... I don't know what they're going to do to him;;

5. [+66, -13] I want to push for Taek being the husband if only the present time scenes weren't Kim Joo Hyuk ㅜㅜ The first two seasons have had tsundere husbands but I think it'd be fresh and different if they had a character like Taek be the husband for once.

6. [+56, -7] Please cut back on the Sunwoo and Bora scenes, so cringe

7. [+56, -4] Feels like Taek's just being used as bait for the previews ㅡㅡ

8. [+51, -6] Wow, I didn't know Jungpal was a supporting character, let alone just a cameo judging by the screentime he's been getting

7. [+45, -3] Scriptwriter-nim, what're you going to do with Taek... how can you make him say that he will die without Duksun.... what're you going to do to him........

8. [+59, -8] Both Taek and Jungpal are lacking in the screentime department... I want to know what's going to happen with the three..

2. [+1,334, -149] Junghwan-ah, enough with the sharing. And what's up with this screentime. Please cut back on Sunwoo's story and increase Junghwan's time. I'm tired of seeing Sunwoo's bowl hair cut.

3. [+1,206, -98] PD-nim, give Jungpal more screentime next time~~ I'll be watching next week to see if he gets more~~

4. [+755, -35] I enjoy all of the characters on the show, including Bora and Sunwoo, but I think they have too many dating scenes. Taek and Jungpal need more screentime.. especially Jungpal today..

5. [+586, -56] Junghwan is frustrating me to death. His friendship with Taek is important but love isn't something that you share.

2. [+106, -6] I watch the drama thinking that "it's just fun" but my mother watches it saying "that's how things were back then". She really is locked in nostalgia the entire time watching. 'Reply' is such an awesome drama that has great attention to detail.

3. [+94, -7] It's so fun ㅋㅋㅋ There's such a great combination of family stories, romance, husband search, etc ㅜㅜ

If the Sung family has paid off their debt doesn't this mean they can move now? Do they plan to move of will they use the money towards their children's educations? 

@lelee thank you for summerizing what happens in each episode. It's really appreciated by those of us that don't understand Korean and must wait too long for subs.

@uglypearl thank you for always providing the OST.

I am also thinking about that.  Maybe that is the reason why it shown that the debt has been resolved in this episode (actually they were already discussing it in the previous episode when DS complain about the cold and her Dad said that its nearly paid) so there is a reason for them to move from the area.  Probably there will be an explosion with regards to the triangle next week and then a time jump.  It will also cover the reason for conflict between SW and Bora relationship as she can study law now and they might break up as she said she cannot do two different things at the same time.

I love Dongryong and I hope the part where his ears has already trained to figure out whose family car is a hint of whatever development he is getting :D. I love the focus the Sung parents are getting in these 2episodes:D:w00t: .I also love the SunwooxHis dad part. 

Assuming the person did not translate it wrongly, Dongryong does seem to really know the messy love triangle/square that happened! Maybe all that teasing is so that 1 of them will do something about their feelings! 

Now I understand the reason there is no progress in the romance, Junghwan think they should focus on the college entrance exam. I wish it's possible to bring in this conversation in ep13 or at least end of ep12.

With regards to the frustration for the main love triangle, I am sure most of us are not asking for more screen time for the love triangle and I do know that this is a family series. The issue here is pacing. Is there really a need for Taek to tell the squad he like Sooyeon and Junghwan telling Sooyeon not to go for blind date to be in the same episode? Couldn't they have spread it out so that at least something happened in ep13?

Since the writer intended to develop the relationship between SW's mom and Taek's dad as well as keep following the topic about father, I know SW would be brought to the center. He stands between 2 families as a son, connects to the triangle as a friend and to the Sung family as BR's bf . And once he became the center, so did BR because she's the one influent on him most. Clearly GKP aka SW was introduced as main character at the beginning (a mysterious one whose family name still hidden) and with his acting skill and the potential multi-layer character SW, they wont waste him.

The center character who connects the whole Ssang Mun Dong stories used to be DS, but since the character was fall in the love triangle and always questioning who loves her, she looses her affection and cant link to anyone (I see her lack of influence on family story since ep5). So rather complain about SW-BR scene (which is totally 10m17s over nearly 2hours airing in ep14), we should understand why the writer did that.

1- This drama is not rom-com or teenager love which focus on only 3 characters like the previous seasons.

2- There're various characters and everyone has the own story which support for the main theme about family.

3- The family stories cant be connected if there's no SW.

Except the (super) slow and frustrating move of the triangle (which I think the result is clearly since ep2), the 2 episodes this week is really good and touching. Of course we need to watch it objectively as family and neighborhood focus.

-The Sung is now changing. They never forget their daughter wish to be a lawyer/prosecutor and they appreciated how much she sacrificed her wish for their family. They called and gave her a suggestion and both cried. Papa Sung no longer annoyed us with his loud mouth. I dont know if BR agrees to following her dream, but with her personality, I bet she'd have the best decision for her and her family and her bf.

-SunBora keeps going with their early stage of dating. Thanks god in ep14 they didnot argue about talking in banmal anymore. However secrets and pressure grow between them. Although they understand and support each other, difficulties still present and make them lack of communication. (Personally, I wish they just remain as a secondary couple, so they wont face with so many trouble and wont be blamed for any problems from the main triangle)

- The relationship between SW's mom and Taek's dad grow up everyday. And since that man became closer to the family, SW felt more isolated and suffered the obsession to his dad. This explains for all SW's behaviors toward mom and JinJoo. He acts in the family as a role of his dad. He keeps the family for his dad. He cant help but loose all his control for another man so he feels guilty with his dad. SW suffered a lot with his psychologically problem and his only cure is BR. That family sense make this couple deeper and remarkable by episdode. (I wish the writer can share the toughness that SW has to handle to JH or Taek so they may get more ariring time T_T)

- DS shows how responsible and trustful she is as a friend to girls around. OK, finally her character made a move to the friendzone with girls  Uri DS deserve all the compliment (but I hope she didnt met that girl's mom T.T and she did everything to save that girl with her  instinct)

- The Kim brothers are always heartful. LoL I dont know watch to say about the pink shirt. JB scene is so hilarious. It's funny and touching when seeing DS and JH both worried for JB first date. 

- And back to DS, finally, finally, she got mad with JH's mix signal (even it was just a misunderstanding). Ok, Duk Sun ah~ When the boy confusing you like this, just ignore him. Stop groaning that noone love you (where's your family? Your sister switching her major isnt for you to go to school?)  So love yourself first!

- Taek finally confess his love that he loves DS for no reason. To him, without DS, he could die. Yeah, bromance up! Like SW, Taek feeling for the Sung girl is deeper than other's expectation. But hmmm I dont know what the writer going to do when she pushes Taek fall so deep and so serious in this love.

- DR's always the best advisor despite the fact that he suffered a lot with his parents. He's another Haitai with humor sense of Bong Sung Jae. Along with BR, DR is the one gives the best advices for the Ssang Mun Dong kids. Hope they can explore more about him and his family. He deserves this too :)

All the parents' love, SW mom and Taek dad and now SunBora, all the loves are based on the moral support, which is clearly lack in the main triangle love, especially form JH to DS. (and from DS to Taek, it's mostly physical care) What a pitty.

Btw, there're so many scenes that were cut off important information. So maybe there'd be huge flashback at the last episodes. And for the preview, I decide to not believe in it :))

@valNK sorry to cut you post, but the above one. I think DS n NE dont know about BR switching her major from Law(her ambition) to math edu. They only know about math edu, I think.

that's means they can move out soon?? but.. i think they wont leaving the area rite?? but it's sad if they stay far than the other families.. the only possible way to let them stay decent house there is.. SW mommy marry TK dad so she can move to choi residence.. and rent out her house to DS family... hehe my silly suggestion ^^;;

I think the triangle love seems frustrating is because the writer keeps making Taek doing competitions every week so he has no time to confess or to show his feeling directly to Deoksun.

Junghwan won't confess until he knows the certainty of Taek-Sun just like how he waited for Sunwoo confessing in the first snow. He values friendship first.

And another thing that makes this frustrating is Junghwan hide himself and his feeling. When it was Sunwoo case, he didn't hide and kept moving. Why does he hide now in Taek case? He was fun to watch even when Deoksun told Sunwoo to confess. At this rate Junghwan is the one who will go to Harvard coz all he does is studying :P

I'm on team Junghwan but I don't care anymore who is the husband -_- One of them who got rejected can be broken-hearted for few months or years and will find another love, all people experienced it ;)

I love Deoksun more than these two boys~ I love that her character is growing and her teacher recognizes her intelligence  :D And I hope Dongryeong also get his own story  :( The 10th episode story isn't enough for this amazing friend. Everybody is the lead except Dongryong -,-

I wanna add my opinion about family story. I thought Sunwoo and dad scene are beautiful and sad. But it could be added to yesterday episode to substitute Sung omma story. Sung omma story already done in Reply 1994. I love the first part of episode 14 with Kim family :D  They're so fun to watch :D

I had my own theory about story progress but it turned out wrong :( I was thinking the love case would be done in 4 episodes. DS liked SW = ep3 - ep6 (4 ep), Junghwan had no other competitor for DS = 7 - 10 (4 ep), SW to Bora = ep6 end - ep 10end (around 4 ep), so I thought this JH-DS-TK would have come to the end in ep 14 that's why I was so excited to wait for the ending -_-

I don't think she does either.  And she's talking about romance, not family anyway. Most teeangers want love and to date when growing up.  And Bora and DS don't have a good relationship in the first place and don't communicate.  I doubt DS even thinks her sister has any positive feelings towards her at all.

Yes, that's why I'm a bit disappointed with DS's development. They should give her more scenes with family members (like the scene with NE's gf) rather than with her love concern and make it stand still.

Yup, no character in this story is dislikable. All layered characters just showed how human they are. I rarely seen someone bash minor characters either. Just because a lot of post showing how they support main couple, doesn't mean they put down another couple. Every couple in this story has their own charm. About "this is main thread, but most people are too biased", this is I disagree.

@minibunnyOf course everyone has right to post anything about their feeling about a certain couple. Please feel free to post anything nice about your bias. And for the record, I never accuse you that you put down JH to defend your opinion. What I am saying is . Every couple in this story has their own charm but the statement that "in this main thread most people are too biased" I disagree.

I don't really think it's DS' fault that she and her sister have a bad relationship.... as the oldest and who was the one who was so hard on her I feel Bora should make more moves towards her sister.  Though it's really the writer's fault more than anything. She has not done enough to portray the sister bound, which is a shame.  My sisters and I had such a great relationship and have one to do this day.  But you can see she doesn't really trust Bora's actions even when they are nice, like giving her that tape a few episodes back.  Though she's willing to accept it anyway.  And DS' development is fine, as this episode showed.  She's also really close with all her family but Bora.  She has a scene every episode with NE as well. 

@shunklunk  I do too.  It's a shame the sisterly bound is so neglected.  It's such an important aspect for girls growing up and it's not developed at all.  Having a sister is such a great thing as well.  They can understand you  more than anything, but Bora and DS are like roommates more than sisters. With Bora mellowing out I wish her and DS could talk more.

ah... i really want some bonding time between deoksun and bora. them talking about future, bora asking deoksun what path will she choose after graduating from school, their parents, even talking about noeul and his girlfriend, bora telling deoksun about sunwoo, and deoksun asking advices from bora. i want them to open up a bit because they're sisters. i actually think your sister is the best person when it comes to this. talking heart to heart without thinking 'oh this may sound awkward' if we do it with our parents ((well that's me)). :)
