'Reply 1988' team to go on a vacation in Phuket

b11.jpg

 

Ilgan Sports - Naver: 'Reply' team to go on a 4 night 5 day vacation after the Jan 17th finale

1. [+2,757, -65] I've never seen a drama like this before. None of the characters is lacking and the casting is solid. It's daebak for a cable drama to be exceeding 15% in ratings. A vacation is well-deserved

2. [+1,663, -32] Daebakㅋㅋㅋ But it's ending already? Time flies.. Hoping the last 4 episodes will be good!!

3. [+1,175, -37] A Phuket getaway is well-deserved. Reply's a must-see

4. [+1,092, -29] I wish everyone could go!! They all worked hard^^

5. [+633, -36] I've been to Phuket tooㅎㅎ Have fun~ I'm enjoying R88 so much!! I wish it never ends ㅜㅠ

6. [+111, -2] PD-nim, you are admirable. From the casting, the music to the background research, everything is perfect

7. [+96, 3] Wishing that the next 'Reply' to have 50 episodes and aired daily

8. [+72 -2] Is Deoksun going?ㅠㅠ I heard she's extremely busy lately. Please let her take a vacation too

9. [+88, -12] I guess there is no better profession than being a celebrity. They get admiration from people, earn money from endorsements, have fun in variety shows while still earning something, go on vacations and work with pretty and handsome peopleㅋ It's the best career in the world

 I would agree with this comment minus the sleep. They don't get much sleep, work long hours all the time, etc. PLus, once they make it big, they cannot go out like that. And let's not start with teh crazy fans... ha ha! For every job, there is a hard price to pay and it is pretty high for actors IMO.

Speaking of jobs, I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone will do in 1994.

I was sold on the whole JH being a doctor but now we have rumors that he is a pilot... Somehow, I really wanted him to be a doctor, I don't know why.

What do you guys think?

Taek = badduk player

Bora = lawyer, judge

DS = stewardess, actress

JH = pilot, doctor

SW = doctor, engineer, pilot

JB = ?? Entrepreneur? Househusband ? ;)@MrsSoJiSub - what would you like your JB to do?

DR = TV personnality, comedian. I also think he could be an actor.

Since JB went to the temple and discovered that missing politician, how about reporter?  Apparantly no one else in Korea had managed to find that guy and it was the only chance we got to see him running.

@toera That's not a bad idea! Do you need a diploma in Korea to be a reporter? Though I guess we all the money he has, and MO as well, they could open their own newspaper!

I want Maggie Cheng for one reason or another divorce my Bong (maybe she got tired of all his hobbies and wasn't feeling much like Vienna). To get over the heart ache he goes on a wild American adventure to "find myself" to which mama Kim wonders ya this little richard simmons what the richard simmons had you been doing all these year. richard simmons find yourself!? This little richard simmons richard simmons richard simmons. Gotta love that woman. Anyways, while on his American adventure he drops by D.C and visits the monuments. While at the Library of Congress my Bong's ears and interest perks when he hears "the voice of the one he knew was destined for him" (blushes) give an interesting factoid about former president Roosevelt who once said "there is much to be learned from stamp collecting.." Eyes met, awkward shy smiles were exchanged. We went to Ben's Chili bowl talked about a lot of things (he was a bit unnerved that I knew he had a little brother and kept asking if he was married and if so "was it someone from your neighborhood? Didn't you tell me some family lived down stairs? You said they had a pretty younger daughter right? Two teenagers living under one roof, something bloomed right..? What became of him and her?" -as he was responding an ambulance came by and I never got to hear everything. All I got was "they are both very happy" then he was looking at me weird so I smiled and didn't bring it back up again). By the end of our meeting we exchanged number. We talked nonstop and I even went with him to New York and Las Vegas (what happened in Vegas stays there *winkwink*). He would fly to visit me and I would go see him in Korea. Unfortunately things just weren't meant to be between us. We lasted for 5 months and last I heard from him he's back with Maggie C (she really was the Vienna of his heart and I wasn't even a close Salzburg).

If only dreams really came true. For real I want my Bong to try the college entrance exam for the last time, and unfortunately fail yet again. He and his parents just accept that college was never in his cards and he moves on from that. He gets a job watching over the arcade in the neighborhood and after months of dating works up the nerve to formally meet Maggie C's father. Life is a twist because daddy Maggie C falls in love with my Bong and both share a love for winning chips prizes. Papa C is some big time antiques collector and actioner and runs many successful house of that field. He's really loaded and my Bong inherits the business when he marries Maggie C. To this day he is the happy CEO (and still obscure collector) of the whole business.

I agree with everything expect for my cold pit bull marshmallow. Once Blue put it out there I have become instant that Junghwan become a PD of some television show. Chances of that happening are slim, but I still want it. I want Taek to be a retired badduk player who like teaches it and runs the variety scene because of it. Ironically enough, the boy who hated giving interviews and such, is pretty damn funny and entertaining when allowed to free talk. I am really curious to see what princess Jinjoo became. I would give anything to have her be some big wig food critic or chef.

So we have:

Taek = badduk player, badduk professor

Bora = lawyer, judge

DS = stewardess, actress

JH = pilot, doctor, PD

SW = doctor, engineer, pilot

JB = entrepreneur, journalist, antiques collector

DR = TV personnality, comedian, actor (?)

@packmule3 You're welcome =]] and thank you for the analyses.Such a splendid post,just based on that one and half minute clip! It's been a pleasure to read your amazing commentaries,and the way you break down each and every left out cues.On a first look,a lot of things seemed accidental and casually placed.But now after all these readings,the scatteredly planted dots have finally started to take shape.Rest of the week will go fast I guess :P.

I agree with @MrsSoJiSub about wanting JH to be a PD. I like the unexpected aspect of it, yet at the same time it seems like the show has hinted at his interest and potential in the entertainment field. He loves movies, keeps current with the popular singers and songs, knows the trendy dances (Sobangcha!). Plus he can use the gag material from his Dad, lol.

Additionally, the show has portrayed JH as a sensitive person in that he is keenly observant to changes in people around him, and he seeks to understand what happened. For example, when he noticed his Dad was not happy, he sought DR's counsel and finally engaged with his Dad in the silly greeting gag. Also when his Mom was disappointed they were okay without her around, he initiated action to assure her that they still needed her. Moreover, he picked up on TK being jealous of their school field trips. 

I believe his sensitivity to and understanding of those around him would be greatly advantageous to a career as a PD. :) Similar to our beloved Shin Wonho PD-nim, he would be able to give depth to his subjects and showcase their humanity and respect their vulnerability.

You give me hope girl :D and you are so right about his being attuned to the feeling of others. That aspect of his character is why I feel for his character. I was edging to him when he bawled up to fight the bullies for Dong Ryeong. I was getting warmer when he smirked at his mom mentioning that she gets jealous of the relationship Sunwoo has with his mother, and was a goner the moment he rightfully punched and cursed out (and poor cold pit bull marshmallow alone) and got a beating from said bully. I fangirl every time I watch the scene where he asks after Sunwoo's necklace and brushes off the concern for his bruises. The things you've pointed out shows he could make a pretty good PD (I actually want him to be a sadistic one like Nam PD LOL).

I like all the potential jobs we've come up with for the character. But they all feel so predictable that I feel the team will go in the very opposite direction with them. Like who really though that one dude from R'97 would work for the government in the country LOL or that Hoya's character would be the doctor (man this team really loves doctors). I thought Yoonjae would become a doctor and Hoya's character an entertainer of some sort (to go with his being an idol irl and a good dancer on the show). I am ready to be surprised by their career choices and future paths.

 I am ready too! But R1997 was a bit different, no? Did they ever talk about what they wanted to become (It's genuine question, I cannot remember)? Plus the time jump arrived earlier so it was hard to predict who would do what...

I want to be the most surprised by DS to be honest. There is nothing wrong with the jobs I/that were mentioned but I imagined DS would do a job a little bit closer to people... She is so smart and also quite sensitive to others. Perhaps a school councelor? I love the whole school president incident in episode 15, so much that I want it to mean sthg in relation to her career. I had mentioned nurse but with her grades, that might be difficult...

Husband was revealed loooong time ago. Just listen carefully. I`m writing this from sound designers and sound editors point of view ( or better point of listening). *Hint- volume up the speakers at 29 seconds listen*

@carolinedl If the diploma stops JB from being a reporter he can open a detective agency.

Spoiler

Where his fighting skills will be a problem haha.

MrsSoJiSub doesn't read spoilers.:phew:

@carolinedl Can I suggest a writer as DS's future aspiration? More like novelist maybe. The present scene where she showed and talked about her diary to the interviewer somehow convinced me that she could become one :) 

And by becoming a novelist, she works at home with flexible working hours so then she could occasionally does some charity works, visiting hospitals, and orphanages and maybe does some volunteer works there. And for all we know, she might become a philanthropist and that's why she's being interviewed, no? :w00t:
