My Drama Update (May 2018)


Reply 1997 (2012)

Country: South Korea

Starring: Jung Eun Ji & Seo In Guk

Completed Episodes: 6

Rating: 3.5/5

Description: Go back in time with long-time friends as they reminisce their high school days and idolization of 90’s group, H.O.T. A Pink’s Eun Ji stars as Shi Won and Seo In Guk stars as Yoon Je.

I was avoiding this drama because it was so popular. Many popular dramas do little to interest me, but this drama has been going well so far. I love the relationship between Shi Won and Yoon Je. In my opinion, the relationships between the characters are what makes this drama, not their fascination with 90’s idols. Actually, I find Shi Won’s obsession with H.O.T’s disturbing, annoying and is basically saesang behaviour. I do not know why the direction is depicting this obsessive behaviour and giving today’s saesang more ideas and ways to harass idols.

School 2017 (2017)

Country: South Korea

Starring: Kim Se Jung, Hyun Tae Woon & Jang Dong Yoon

Completed Episodes: 12

Rating: 3.5/5

Description: Gugudan’s Kim Se Jung plays the role of Ra Eun Ho, a low-ranking high schooler and an aspiring webtoon artist. This drama follows Ra Eun Ho as she deals with being marginalized in her school because of her low grades, lack of wealth, and being blamed for a crime that she did not commit.

This drama is going well. I am almost finished, and I cannot wait to see how the drama ends. I hope Tae Woon and Se Jung strengthen their relationship by the end of this series. My heart cannot stand any more disparity between them.
