It is rare that there is a drama that all The Fangirls are watching together.  But somehow “Answer Me 1988” has become such a drama.  So since we are all sad that it is finished and we have to say goodbye, we decided to say goodbye together in our first ever drama roundtable.  So join us as we chat about our favorite characters, couples, and just all things Answer Me 1988.

Answer Me 1988 Episode 19: I’ve Got You Babe

f7It is actually very hard to write this review because it will be my last recap for the drama.  But I must suck it up and give the people what they want (or don’t want depending on who you talk to) and reveal “THE HUSBAND”.  Except that will come later since there was so much more than just the reveal in this episode.  Because at the end of the day this is a story about a block, not one couple, and the relationships that make life worth living.  So without further ado let’s jump into my recap of Episode 19.

Answer Me 1988 Episode 18: Relax (Don’t do it)

Not only is the title to honor the eighties, but it’s a little reminder in face of the finale next week. Episode eighteen was entitled Goodbye, First Love, which is serious punch to the gut. It brings up nagging questions like, Whose first love is ending? Is this a final end, or does it mean first love is changing to true love?

I’ll venture to give my opinion later in the post, but I will say this. It isn’t over until it’s over.

Answer Me 1988 Episode 17: I Dreamed A Dream

a25.pngI loved how the writers developed this episode, bringing us into the long expected time jump.  While we didn’t get that happily ever after bow for every character (let’s just say that all the love lines, except the parents, crash and burn…….more on that later) we did finally learn what everyone’s dreams for the future were.  Something that surprisingly hit a high note for this blogger.  I never really thought about it before, but this whole show has been themed on achieving dreams whether it was in academics, parenting, work, or romantically.  So let’s take a minute to focus on the end of an era as our characters finally grow up a little.

“Answer Me 1988” Episode 15: When the Warm Fuzzies Attack

a04

I am possibly at the point where it is impossible to come up with specific themes for each episode.  Pretty much we always just have a mesh of wonderful heart touching slice of life stories that highlight the whole neighborhood. It has gotten to the point that I now have a dream that someday I can live next to my kbesties on the same block so we can hang outside our house and gossip while our kids create friendships and fall in love (Hear that Angela and Jen!  You have to convince your hubbies to move to Portland for me.)a01 Continue reading

Answer Me 1988 Epsiode 14: The Gifts

First Off, Merry Christmas Eve everyone!! I hope you enjoy some family time, and get to catch up on dramas next week!

I’m trying to do some Holiday Inspired things myself (Without So Ji Sub on my screen, unfortunately) So I’m going to keep this recap short.

I will say this before I start, if you get a chance to watch this episode, do. I came to tears at a particularly touching part where we got to see Duk Seon Soo Yeon’s real heart. I can’t really cover it, but I will say this, she’s loyal when it counts, and I can see why so many guys like her. Continue reading
