Thoughts on Reply 1988

So! This post is long overdue! This has been my favourite drama of the year (up high in the rank of my all time favourites, for sure), and I wish nothing but write about how much I loved this drama, but alas! time has restricted me to express my obsession with this drama. My BluRay copy of this drama is coming out soon, sooooo I'm very excited to own that.

Reply 1988 is the third installment of the Reply series. I talked about how much I fell in love with Reply 1997 and wished that I had discovered that gem during its run. I totally missed out on the fun of being cliffhanged and the countdown just to see a new episode. I made sure this time not to miss out on 1988! I thought no installment could ever top my love for 1997. I mean, 1994 was a good run, but I wasn't fully invested in any of the characters. My love for 1988 was just on a whole  different scale. I loved it from day 1, even though I jumped on ships way too many times until I decided to fully board and be faithful in one couple.

1988 takes you back to how people were like with no technology to depend on.

Youth and young love.

^I love this scene so much.
Duk Seon tapped Taek's bum asking him to drink his milk well, so that he can grow up faster and marry her.
Little did we know, that's what exactly Taek did. He grew up and married his childhood best friend.

This post will be heavily Taek and Duk Seon-biased as I talk about how beautiful their love story is and how much I am smitten by their unconditional love for each other.

Reply 1988 - Nothing's Gonna Change in Taek and Duk Seon's relationship

Beautiful drama. I wish the song was longer as I, unfortunately, couldn't fit all the beautiful scenes this couple had in the drama.

I thought this song was perfect for this couple who loved each other since they were 8. Three decades later, their love still continues to grow.

"Hold me now, touch me now
I don't want to live without you

Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you

One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love

The world may change my whole life through
But nothing's gonna change my love for you"

If you haven't seen this drama yet, please do! It's very heartwarming. You can't help, but wish you had their kind of love - childhood sweethearts.

Oh Hae Young Again

This is the drama I was obsessed about recently! Oh Hae Young Again is about an "ordinary" woman who shares the same name who has "better and greater" looks and visuals. Growing up, she was always in back, the forgotten Oh Hae Young, while the other Oh Hae Young gets all the better treatment and boys fall heads over heals for her.

One day, her fiancee dumped her and cancelled their wedding a day before it happened. She soon run into this man named Park Do Kyung. Their fate seemed to always overlap and she eventually fell for this man. Ironic part is Do Kyung's ex-fiance was the "better and greater" Oh Hae Young.

It’s heart wrenching and my heart hurts so much for this woman. Every time she wants to take a step further to building confidence, circumstances just make her take two steps back. I like that despite her very low self-esteem since elementary (always being compared to the "better" one), she strives so hard to break that stigma and just be herself.

This woman wears her heart on her sleeve, loving with all of her heart and wants nothing but to be loved in return.

I seriously think this song is such a perfect song for her.

“So I put on my make up,
Put a smile on my face
And if anyone ask me, everything is okay
I’m laughing cuz no one knows the joke is on me
Cuz I’m dying inside with my pride and a smile on my face…”

This song just truly describes what she’s been through this entire drama.

I enjoyed so much making this video, reeling in the song for OHY. Hope you`ll enjoy too!
