Reply 1997 (2012)

At the age of 18, we think we can love anyone… and worry too much about little things. Eighteen. Adults say at this age, we laugh at the simplest things. But at that time, we were serious. Harder and more intense than most adults. – Shi Won

  • The last episode recorded the highest ratings at the time for a Korean cable drama, and the series has garnered praise from audiences and critics for being well-researched, refreshing, genuine, and full of humor and heart


  • Everything in the drama was full of meaning and everything just fit together perfectly.
  • It was full of sweet moments and what I like about this drama is that there isn’t some annoying or crazy villain.
  • The cast and acting was perfect. Every single one them managed to create their own story in their own unique and quirky way. I laughed (that Busan dialect), I loved and I cried for all their troubles and woes.
  • The six lead actors created a great atmosphere and believable friendship moments.
  • I loved Eunji and Seo In Guk the most. They had some great chemistry going on between each other.
  • Special mention to Seo In Guk, his acting was amazing. You can see his emotions through his eyes and when he cries I just cry with him, because it seems so genuine and the pain is visible through his crying.
  • The OST is good. My faves : All For You and Just the Way We Love by Seo In-guk and Jung Eun-ji
  • I would consider a drama on how good it is based on how addicted I was and Reply 1997 gave me that super addicted feels. This series is unique, hilarious and oh-so-refreshing. Simple, but awesome. I recommend this drama to everyone.

My Rating – 9/10
