Answer Me, 1994 is a successful sequel in many ways, and in others, not so much.

The show continues to make you nostalgic and the friendships of the core group grab a hold of your heart. You watch because of the characters, for the slice of life. For that the show is super successful.

However, the overarching mystery went about 8 episodes too long (and considering the long episodes, another peeve, it's a big chunk of time), eventually becoming overworn. It went from gripping curiousity to wary exhaustion, and at a point just wanted you to reveal who the husband is. But overall, the show manage to have the heart that it's predecessor did, and it managed to stand on its own. That is quality.

A great throwback to the 90s, the show manages to capture the troubles of being young in a fun and heartfelt way. Definitely worth the time.

Na Jeong moved from the countryside to Seoul. Her parents opened a boarding house for students who came to Seoul, so it never gets boring in her home! There is her very close friend since childhood called Trash, a Seo Taiji fangirl called Yun Jin, two country pumpkins they named HaeTae and Cheon Po and the two cousins Smiles and Chil Bong. This simple slice of live drama tells the story of these 7 young people and how they grow up to become adults.

After the popularity of Reply to 1997 they decided to make another story that's built up similar, just that they start in 1994. I really liked 1997 but I was so happy to see that they made something new out of the story. The beginning is similar - Na Jeong is a fangirl of some basketball player. And they show the future, how the main couple is married, without showing the husband. They just give hints every episode and tease you, so you don't know who it is actually.

I really liked all the characters in this drama. They are fun to watch, loveable and grow on you from episode to episode. The only thing that could have been better is the chemistry between the couples. Not only the main couple, but in general. The only couple that was really sparkling for me is the mother and the father.

But aside from that, the kids showed a good friendship with each other, so the drama was really enjoyable! The story never dragged, I loved to see who she would end up with and I especially like the ending, that's just lovely and peaceful. It shows exactly what you needed and wasn't rushed.

For the lack of chemistry when it comes to love I deducded one star, but I still recommend this to everyone, who likes funny dramas with a bit of romance and a good slice of live story!

É triste este drama, acho que eu gostaria mais dele se tivesse visto ele antes de AM 1988, focaram muito num triangulo amoroso que claramente o segunda opção não tinha chance, fiquei com muita dó, não shippei mas ele sofreu muito, se fosse apenas 16 eps faria mais sentido para mim.

Hardly finished.
I don't know what was wrong with this drama. At one side, actors were nice (despite i don't like Go A Ra, she was ok here), characters were sweet, plot was simple yet very heartwarming. But at other, Do Hui was always wooden-faced, Ba Ro - retarded, A Ra couldn't fit her character till the end. And the characters themselves were too... idk... flat? I mean, where the hell gone Na Jeong's fangirling?
Why Trash loved her only when Chil Bong was near? Why we again have that puppy-eyed second lead who will never get the girl?

Besides, the story itself was too long, slow and boring. I'm sure, 16 eps could be enough.

Love this drama with all my heart. So comforting and easy to watch, I never felt tired of it. Ended perfecly, just like how I wanted it to end. I have to say I prefered the first few episodes because they were a lot funnier, but I also really, really liked the rest. There wasn't a character I wouldn't become attached to, I'll probably miss them a lot - I could see myself in every single one of them. I laughed, I cried and thought of how I'd love my life to resemble that one in this drama... It's all about youth and nobody's gonna be young forever, that's why I'm really happy I watched it just before turning 20.
I didn't mind 21 long episodes, that actually made me quite happy since I could spend more time with my favorite characters~ Oh, how happy would I've been if it only lasted forever.

I don't really understand people thinking it would be better if Najeong ended up with Chilbong... There were many episodes when he wasn't even present, he was appearing and vanishing all the time. It would destroy entire plot if suddenly Najeong chose him instead of a person she loved for so long. I agree, I'd also like to know more about his life after Najeongs' wedding but don't make such a pitiful person out of him. He was succesful, nobody took anything from him and he also met a girl that made him happy ^-^ Actually I feel it's better that he met someone new, not a person who was present in his life before because that would somehow be more disappointing. But that's only how I feel about it, from what I see not many people would agree with me ~.o


PS. Team Trash oppa! :D

Decided to rewatch Reply 1994 while waiting for the next episode for 1988 to come out and realised that I found that the Reply-series are more comforting than ever now when I am doing my internship abroad. The nostalgia really soothes my homesickness.

The beginning was great, but the last episodes were way too long ..
