Answer Me 1988 follows its predecessors in being a successful story about youth and the trials of growing up.

This time around, the focus is more on families, with the parents stepping in to play a larger role. And it works out great, as the relationships become more meaningful because this isn't just about five families who happen to live on one street, it's more about one large family who happen to live in different houses.

The acting is great, with the ensemble cast melding well. From the veteran parents to the new-actor kids all embrace their roles; willing to do what's necessary to make the characters heartwarming.

The writing, like all the shows in this series, knows how to create a world that's fulfilling, making even small moments seem monumental. The slice-of-life approach gives everyone a chance to grow and the time-jumps shown in an effective way so that it isn't too jarring. It makes you yearn to have lived on this street with everyone.

The only weak point is that each episode's run time is long, so there's the occasional moments where the plot slows down. But because it often picks the pace up again, and because everyone is just so lovable, it's a small point in a large, successful show.

A definite recommend.

I'm team Taek to the core!!
I can't understand why anyone would ship JeongHwan and DeokSeon..
Taek is so sweet and cute and idiotic, but at the same time full in love and -subtly- masculine. He has his own way of doing things; innocently, quietly, honestly. And the way DeokSeon takes care of him shows love and affection and all the sweet things you would want from your very first love.
On the other hand, DeokSeon's relationship with JeongHwan is one with insults and fights and kind of friendly behaviour and JeongHwan avoiding her. It feels forced.. (It could work, but not likely.)

However, as much as I want Taek to be the one, judging from the older couple, DeokSeon seems to end up with JeongHwan.

And here we are, on episode 16, and after all this time our Taek finally finds the courage -and the opportunity- to confess his feelings, but backs away at the very end. Whyyyyy.....
This episode just broke my heart, because this seemed to be Taek's last chance.

And I'm mourning already...... ㅠㅠ

O drama em si é tão bom que nem me importo com quem a Deok Seon vai ficar no final, nunca fiquei tão imersa em um drama desse jeito antes.
