I'm truly touched by their friendship.heartwarming relations amongst the families.quiet yet dedicated father -son relationship of and taek.was just lovely..first episode where the ommas screamed to have dinner brings nostalgia.. I got a little bit skeptical first because kdrama sequel never as good as the first series. I learned a lot about Korean families, customs and traditions, parent-child relationships, friendships, and lifestyle. Jung himself realized that fate and timing were not in his favor.hahah.big thanks to all the casts, crew, writers and makers and everyone involved in this terrific dramas..salute.. India When it comes to last episode, it's totally made me sad. I just feeling that 'it's me who leave the neighbourhood. But this one is good even better than 1997 because the story is more complex and the character development is amazing. A rich kid, a single mother&father kid, the perfect family but parents never home kid. their bond make me wanted to live in 1988 instead of this era. prepare for the roller coaster emotion I never write a review because I'm always busy at work or anything but I must this is a good drama and if you are hesitating if watching it or not , don't be anymore and watch it , I cry laugh and love every character enjoy it! As i watched ep 1 i was about not to continue watching because i thought this is not going to be good... He was not as determined as Taek and he kept on hesitating until he later lost his chances. In contrast, Taek gave importance to Duksun, often calling her, asking for movie dates, hugging and kissing her too.
For you who hesitate to watch it, I can assure you 100% this drama won't disappoint you.
i agree with army reply 1988 is my best family drama of all second is my father is strange. they didn't even show their wedding, instead they focused with bora and sun woo's wedding...ugh! and you should never blame anyone if you yourself didnt do anything or been always on hesitations... I have watched Reply 1997 earlier because of Jung Eun Ji and Seo In Guk and I liked it.
i have watched reply 1988 for five times already but still....i cry ....i laugh and and was always entertainwd everytime i watch it... hoping for another reply kdrama This is the best drama..brilliant..! Story, cast, directing, and everything is just perfect. more than the love story it's a story of friendship amongst the parents and eventually their children... Reply 1988 is the better drama despite the low ratings of some viewers. Because of the casting and their very good acting; beautiful story in general and individual family stories; the funny scenes and dialogues,the sad moments and the romantic scenes, especially the rivalry of Jung Hwan and Taek for the same woman, Duk Sun.
The family dynamic was very real and I don't get emotional for makebeliefs but this drama really got me in the gut. The final episode gets me bawling when the families dispersed, reminds me of my youth separating from closeknitted families and friends from the same era as the drama.
Cyborg faced Gyung Po and the rest of the gang were marvellous. I swear, this is the best korean drama I've ever watched that I rewatched it five times.
It makes my heart leap whenever they show the scene between the love triangle. this is not even an exaggeration, just plain excitement. I personally agree that taek's more suitable to duk seon. However, the one that less in this drama was the scenes between taek and duk seon.
