[Drama 2015] Answer Me 1988 응답하라 1988

Recommended Posts

@blue_angel_1004~thanks for the text translation!!!! can't wait for friday now!!!!

To reply to the post about ppl staying in the shipper threads.....I think its because most of us feel more comfy in our own threads....we can say/voice what we want w/o drama/major disagreement call it safe zone. I think everyone is just trying to avoid a shipping war here which is GOOD.

We still come here for "mutual" things but the shipping threads are moving faster because ppl are MOSTLY talking more about "their ships" so makes sense to stay within the threads... but ofc in general everyone LOVES reply 1988....so WHOOT to that and FRIDAY hurry up!

By the way, I looked up the song that was playing in the background for the Episode 17 video preview.

 

The song is called "이별이란 없는거야" ("There is no farewell").  It is a 1988 song by Choi Sung Won. (Though he has the same name as the actor playing No Eul, it's not the same guy!) 


The part of the lyrics that was used in the background goes like this: 

언젠가 만나겠지 새로운 모습으로
안녕이란 말은 없는거야 이 세상 떠나기 전에

Someday we'll meet, looking anew

There is no goodbye until [we] depart this world

JH: Did you open my wallet by any chance?

TK: No. I didn't see. 

Joey Wong: Choi Taek, that Baduki, sees… you as as a total pushover. [Note: "Baduki" is the nickname that Joey Wong and Maggie Cheung call Taek. It's a play on the game "baduk", but Baduki is also a common name for dogs with spots, similar to "Spotty"] 

DS: What?

JB: Lil' bro, if you make a wish upon a falling star, it'll all come true!

SW: Noona, did you make a wish?

JH: My wish is...

 

 

lol...pushover. I want episode 17 now. :bawling:

Thank you for translating.

 Does that signal some separation?

:( let me cry my eyeballs out after ep 17 :(

It perhaps signals a separation, but also a reunion, right? They're saying they will meet again... maybe as soon as Episode 18!  :)

Thank you @blue_angel_1004 for always kindly providing translations and background information. :)

Seems like the song is foreshadowing the time jump (and consequent separation) that is supposed to happen in ep 18? Edited to add that I agree with blue: the song also implies a reunion, and I have high hopes it will happen sooner than we think. 

Also funny that the preview clip doesn't show any of the parents, lol. The show knows what the audience wants, haha. Such a tease. 

Another interesting thing is JH using formal speech when he says "My wish is..." He doesn't use formal speech with JB, so I'm wondering to whom he is talking. Or maybe, like @namunamuyeppeo suggested, JH will provide the narration for the episode? We shall see. 

I don't have any falling stars, but I'm going to go ahead and make a wish anyway and wish that episode 17 won't be more brooding and inaction. We're almost there to Friday and ep 17, everyone!!! :D

Actually, I took it that he was using the formal speech as he was making the wish. You know how when people pray, they pray using formal speech. (At least, I do.) And when making a wish upon a falling star, I would think people would use formal speech too since you're speaking to a being beyond you... the star! 

I think the scene in the preview is that of JH actually making the wish, not of him telling anyone in particular what his wishes are...

^Time Jump!!! To see Trash in ep 18! JH and SW will go off to college, while DS and DR do jaesoo (study for entrance exams to enter college next year) and play with Taek in the neighborhood. Move, plot, mooooooove.

Why do I feel that Sung family will move out? I mean, they have no reason to stay in basement rent house with all the debt paid already.

Just looking at how Lee Mi Yeon become her adult version, I wish Deokseon will do some cast and become an actor. Everyone tells she is pretty, right?

I've ever seen a comment in dramabeans telling that maybe Joey Wong will open her mind about her liking Taek

Man Ok to Deokseon about Sunwoo: He likes you

Man Ok to Deokseon about Junghwan: He likes you

Joey Wong to Deokseon about Taek: You like him

I am Junghwan-Deokseon shipper, what the writer-nim wants is not make it too obvious. Looking at the Park Bo Gum behind the scene, they already showed his smoke and curse scene. Just so curious how they will make his drunken scene.

but no news about the confrontation of their feelings with Deoksun.. <goat sound>

hang in there guys.. it's Tuesday.. and it's almost friday!

-------

also, i spoke with a reply 1988 subber from DF, they won't release any drama specials yet--no go signal for it yet, but maybe after the episodes they'll have it but still not 100% sure :) so for the reply 1988 'behind' they are not yet sure if they'll sub or if they are even gonna do it.
sorry for this bit of info for those who are waiting for today's sub release! ><

I think so too. A lot of episodes of angst & brooding.  

As someone who root for the other guy, I feel like I am waiting for the train wreck to happen. Every episode is like readying myself for the sinking. I resigned myself for the inevitable but whenever I see a glimmer of hope, I hold on to it. But it is a fun, enjoyable ride...I can't believe it's almost goodbye.

Hello, @pi2tni4ng!!

Ah, the good old days of AM1994~~

So, who are you rooting for this time? Taek or JH?

 

  Reveal hidden contents

... is JH. I would be very, very, very surprised if it turned out to not be the case.

 

I know I practically wrote a novel last time on why Trash was the husband. But please understand I have no intention of doing that this time.

The husband will be revealed when it is time for him to be revealed anyway, which will of course be in the first 10 minutes of the last episode. Errrg.

Until then, let's just enjoy the ride!

 

Junghwan had me at that scene where he smile seeing deoksun on TV ^^;.
It's not that I don't like taek, but junghwan stole my heart first :wub:.
But I'm being cautious so I read all the 3 thread here and I think the writer are being better at fleshing out both the husband contender's characters. It's 50:50 for me specially after watching the last 4 episodes. My doubt on junghwan being the husband is getiing bigger and bigger, that's why I'm asking you :sweatingbullets:

But after seeing the preview of ep.17 I'm back to believing that junghwan is the husband for the simple reason that there is no way that the writer making him being miserables for that many episodes without him having his happy ending.
They invest too much on his character, his emotions, his internal conflicts since the first episode and we see everything from his point of view right to the last preview. How can he not be the main lead ?

I also think that the husband will be revealed at the last episode.

I need your novel girl..It's nice seeing your perspective and I agree with @eylrx it would be great having it after the hubby is revealed to avoid unnecessary ship war :D

Episode 17 preview

I am confused with Taek's answer... Or is it just because of the translation?
Jung Hwan's question was answerable by yes or no. But Taek's answer was he did not see it. (See what?)
If I were Jung Hwan, I would think and believe that Taek really did see the picture because he was already denying that he saw something.

Episode 17 cannot come soon enough but I don't want this drama to end. How do I say good-bye to my Bong hyung (cue 'how do I live without you' by Leanne Rimes) :tears::tears: How do I say goodbye to the squad and the awesome mom trio and the diverse dads. What will I do with my Fridays and Saturday (brain: get back to your real life and stop zombie living)!!! What will I do without my Kim family interactions. The Kim brothers? Seriously, what will I do without my Bong....how do I say good-bye to what we had....it's so haaaard to say good-bye...

I think JH said "Did you open my wallet & saw what's inside?" and TK answered with "no, I didn't see it" but there's possibility that could be random cut from any conversations :D

@sartikam I rewatched EP7 as well...and I found that what it illustrated was exactly what DS narrated at the end... 

They have reached an age where secret santa no longer interested them. She was JH's secret santa, but she had zero interest in being nice to him that week, or get him anything at all.
She didn't even seem to have thanked him for the gift. Poor guy...

SMFJA0.jpg

All she cared about was confirming that Taek is HER secret santa, and she is so over the moon with that. When she got the gloves in the morning, she was soooo excited, and all she did was ask No eul if Taek brought it over, and IF HE WAS STILL THERE. She couldn't wait to see him again, despite only just seeing him a few hours ago last night when he promised to get her gloves... 

That's my take on that scene... Sorry if I upset anyone with this... but try watching it again and take note of how she seemed to look puzzled at her reflection later when she posed with the gloves - while it could mean that she wondered why JH gave it to her ( she was not that shy to not ask him directly though ) it could also be her wondering why she didn't feel that thrill when its not gloves from Taek? Just wondering here...
