What if.....

Later we know that Taek has disease in his head and can't be cured, then junghwan has heart disease or run into an accident and to save junghwan they must replaced his heart and find a donors.. 

And then taek give his heart to junghwan because his disease can't be cured and junghwan survive from his disease with taek's heart in his body now and married with deok sun.....

If that happen the ending will be so dramatic i think hehe

 

. . . even though I've managed to not become invested in the husband hunt this time (amazingly), that result will have me crawled into a corner, hugging my knees and rocking back and forth for days. .. 

:tears:

For those of you that have seen it. . . .

Spoiler

it's getting WAY to close to the Thai movie My Bromance (Phi Chai) for me, and that movie left me devastated for weeks!

If I try to see it from perspective of any fiction/art/film,all around the world people in creative sector are trying to break the mold,and bringing something new each time.It's  like being able to not repeat the old style is also being able to beat your own limitation.So I wish the writer does not take cues from her past works...and try to excel in a new way,but staying true to her root of course.We are here for reply'88,not for an amalgamation of the previous two seasons right.

I don't know how old the writer is, but all seasons have so many little details and the characters/the stories are so human that give the impression that she is incorporating her memories. I think she evolved and perfected many things but the core is the same. I don't think she's copying her previous work, more all works are born in the same place. Of course, that's just my impression.

Has anyone ever posted an interview of the writer/the PD btw?

And.. the new OST is out: OST part 9 As time pass by

Lyrics in english (credit to YSu Zoo @ youtube)

Spoiler


세월이 가면 (as time goes by)

even you show your smile to me, 
you can't hide the void countenance.

with blurred eyes, 
i'm just watching your image 
that's turning around dejectedly.

i know that it's the last moment of our love.

even we both want to remain in it.
but in front of the flowing time, 
there's nothing that last forever

as time goes by,
we might forget the heartrending longing 
that will follow  us.

but please remember this. 
there's someone whom 
once we cherished endlessly deep in our heart.

----------------------------------------------------------------

as time goes by,
we might forget the heartrending longing 
that will follow  us.

but please remember this. 
there's someone whom

Hi guys, happy new year!!! First time posting here. @Packmule3 you seriously got me thinking with your post, it was great! Now i'm going to pay extra close attention to the camera work when Taek is around! 

Also, while I was watching a fanmade ost video which showed the story where DS tells SW to confess on the first day of snow, I suddenly thought what if Taek, after hearing her, wanted to confess on the first day of snow too, but because he didn't believe she would take it seriously he called her to go watch a movie instead. Maybe thinking he could confess the day they go to the movies, but unfortunately he was so tired he ended up falling asleep and there went that plan :tears:. Hence "timing" being such a predominant symbol in Taeks' house. It could be that he has wanted to confess ever since she told SW to confess, but the timing was always against him. And now, when he finally decides to, he finds about JH's feelings. Again, timing. Had Taek confessed early on, everything could have been a different story because DS had just been rejected by SW. Instead JH did not waste time showing his affection for DS and made her see him romantically. Which I think Taek has yet to do... and it's episode 16 already. This reminds me of reply 1994 where it was deep into the story and NaJung still showed no sign of seeing Chilbong romantically. Knowing how pitiful the pd made Chilbong (I was team Chilbong..) if Taek is really not the husband, he could make this a part of his story...seeing how he likes to shows us those clocks so much. This is all a theory of course, just thought I'd share. Not sure if anyone has thought about this already, and I'm just late to the party lol. I ship DS and JH but Taek just hurts my heart :tears:

@packmule3

Thank you, thank you for your very amazing insights into the script and camerawork! I have always enjoyed reading your posts and it adds multiple layers of enjoyment when I rewatch the series. 

I really appreciate the well written characters in this series, everyone feels real and relatable. All imperfect people, with their own individual insecurities, hopes and dreams. This is why R88 has found such popularity right? 

I also have found the 'inconsistencies' of Taek very interesting. For once a male character is not a clear cut goody-goody or a jerk with a heart of gold, or a bad person constantly plotting...  Your comment about the cold had me laughing, because I noticed it too... Sunwoo has mentioned a few times that he likes to cuddle with Taek because he is so warm, like a stove ( according to my subs) ... hahaha  

So now JH hides his feelings from DS, and Taek hides himself - his real self.  Who is going to come up on top after the truth gets out? *super excited for Ep17*

I can never understand people that bashed Junghwan's character for whatever reasons. Or accuse that he did certain things to give himself an advantage over Taek(Did you watch ep11-16 where he is literally crying whenever he thinks of Taek and Deoksun? Or in ep12 where he admit he can't hate Taek.). 

I see accusations like 'Junghwan is only nice to Deoksun'.

Ep 4 - Junghwan doing the Kim Sajang gag with his dad after realizing his Dad is upset.

Ep 5 - Junghwan making his Mum happy after realizing she's upset

Ep 8 - Junghwan assuring Jungbong his surgery have a high success rate by reading up medical books in advance

I ship Deoksun with Junghwan because I believe there is a reason Deoksun is the only 1 who plays along with Junghwan's Dad. I believe his Dad will dote on her a lot if she gets married into his family.

i wonder which couple will be used for this song or it may represent the neighborhood or the gang.
Sad but true..there's nothing that last forever.

But please pd-nim make the reunion meaningful and joyful.

JunHyeok and SungWoon of Boyband HOTSHOT Parodying JH-DS Blind Date Test Scene

omg !! thanks @uglypearl !! that was funny , the guy who parody as DS is literally prettier than me T.T wae !! Reply 1988 is truly popular now !! No one can deny it. The male lead who acts as JH does resemble Jun Yeol at certain angle when he says ' 하지마 ' simply sounds like JY!

Looks like I am not the only one with R88 withdrawals!! hahahahaha I have been rewatching the eps studiously.. everytime I noticed something new... its very fun..

Ending of Ep 7 <<< Why did Taek still go to the Baduk Center on a holiday when nobody else went? He could have stayed home to hang out with his friends? But he went there to play by himself... unless it was just scripted this way so the manager of the Center can have a chance to hand him his VHS present from his fan club president. 

Young DS Narrates [ credit to dramacool for the subs ] 

" Time continues on.

Thats why time eventually creates farewells

and it always leaves people with regrets.

If you love someone, you have to tell them now

before your fleeting days become filled with regret.

In some ways, the biggest present that time leaves us with

is the memories we have of loving others.

That's why you have to shove embarrassment aside 

and confess your love to the one you love

before it is too late. "

Isn't that very applicable to the current love lines? Who is too embarassed to confess? :phew:

i am doing some back reading in the thread and a particular comment caught my attention. someone said that when DS said (ep 16) that "nothing is working out these days for her" they said that she was disappointed because TK cancelled the movie and DS was sad because she likes TK but i think that's not it or not solely the reason. maybe DS was sad that the movie date didn't happen (let's just say that) but when TK cancelled it, she doesn't look 'that' sad, i was replaying that scene thinking if DS would betray any emotion and show sadness like the sadness that was shown in her face when JH said he won't go to the Lee Moon Sae concert, but i don't see any of that.

I think what DS meant that time was about her studies, we've seen in previous episodes how she was worrying about her studies and finally on ep 16 we see her cry to her mom, cry on the stairs, desperately try to learn by asking help from her seatmate, and being depressed that even Ja Hyun knows what she wants in life (be a hairdresser) while she (DS) doesn't know what she wants to be.

And when the boys ask him what she's doing in the study room she got all sensitive as to why? can't she study here too? instead of complaining that her movie date with TK was cancelled. Because if that was really what she's thinking or reason for being sad then that would be the thing she would blurt out. Plus, for someone who doesn't want to go to the movie date in the first place, why would she be so much disappointed?

Also don't forget Ep 2. Junghwan hit the scary sunbae to defend sunwoo

Just throwing it out there......

I'm not really sure if the "happy ending" in my mind would materialised.  But, I know we're gonna have a satisfying end to Reply 1988, so I'm really trying to just enjoy the ride, whichever way it goes.  Though, I'm with some who are rooting for Deok-sun to end up with Taek.  Why?  Really hard to pin-point. Sometimes I think I'm just blinded by the classic "prettiness"  that is Park Bo-gum.  Coz if I give out all my reasons based on Taek and Deok-sun's actions on the drama, it won't really fly.  Why? Based on viewing R 1988 to 1994, if your rooting for one team, every action from that ship, you'd put malice. And we may be right, or majorly wrong.  So whichever way it goes, hope it won't be that painful for the viewers.  ;)
