    Does your comment include names of drama streaming sites? If so, add space in between- like K Show 123, Kiss Asian, etc..

    Same with links.. usually these are what DB considers “inappropriate”

      nope nothing of the sort. I wrote some rude words but then I cancelled them too…still not letting me post

        Uh that is weird!
        Inappropriate words till now have included links, other sites’ names, words like “Spoiler-alert”, FIRST (though this is not an inappropriate word anymore)…

            Cookies are temporary files created by the browser/site for easy access… usually they help but one should apparently refresh these at some intervals..

            I am not that tech savvy either but if you are working from PC/laptop, do you know the option from where one deletes history? There is an option for deleting cookies- usually both are deleted together but one can choose to just delete cookies..

I’m sorry if it’s been asked before but I have a few questions regarding WPL-
1.Min chul and jean valjean are not really father-son right? its just how they call each other endearingly right?
2.in ep 4 did someone put the spanner in Dr Ko’s bag in the woodshop and did je hyuk take the blame for it? why was anyone trying to get them in trouble?
3.In ep 6 Dr ko found some pills in the recycle bin( this was after they fooled je hyuk into thinking his coach appeared in his dreams). What did that mean?

1
10

    1. Nope they are not father and son
    2. I forgot when this scene happened so I can’t help ><
    3. They gave captain yoo and jehyuk sleeping pills before so that both won't wake up in the middle of their act. But him finding the pills in the bin meant that they both didn't take the sleeping pills.

      Thank you. ..
      Regarding the third one does that mean je hyuk played along to their tricks cos all he really wanted was to have an excuse to start playing baseball again?

        Yes, that’s how I interpreted it. He knew what they were up to, and it was just the excuse he needed to get started again

    2. IIRC gay wood chief was messing with JH by trying to get Dr. in trouble but JH saved him because he knew he’s the reason why gay chief did what he did.

    1

      But I think that the chief only showed his true colours later…Afterwards when they were alone. ..before that he was really good to everyone or at least pretending to be..what I thought was once Dr ko came to know that the chief was stealing all their money from their overtime, he submitted a complaint and then the police reprimanded the chief to give them their money…so one of the chief’s lackey planted the tool in Dr ko’s bag to incriminate him but je hyuk somehow found out and took the blame…correct me if I’m wrong

      1
      1

        Ohhh you’re right, that was before he showed his true colors. As for the reason why they did it, it’s because of Dr. Ko’s complaint, but he didn’t know the chief and Lt. Lee were pocketing their pay.

        1
        1

          Yeah he didn’t know but obviously they were pissed that their extra money was cut off so that’s probably why they did it.

          1
          2

            Who? The chief’s minions? I think he’s also paying them which was why they got pissed when Dr. Ko complained about the delayed pay. Gay chief and Lt. Lee were forced to give the inmates their pay so no money for them both and the minions.

Seeing the head writer in radio romance reminds me of Indian soap operas antagonists-what with her obsession with nail colours and one track mind of destroying the heroine. ..now all she is missing isSome kohl on her eyes and accompanying evil music

7

    When I read kohl on her eyes Kokila from Saath Nibhaana Saathiya popped in my head! Her Kajal is epic 😂

    4
    2

      Oh yeah I remember her LOL! Even though I haven’t watched the serial. ..but I don’t think she was an antagonist was she? I was talking about all the ekta kapoor serials villains…I think Urvashi dholakia and the likes

      2
      1

        I don’t know, I don’t think she was, my mom used to watch it and my cousin calls herself Kokila because she has big eyes, LOL!
        Oh, yes, Ekta Kapoor’s villains, now I remember some of them😂

        1
        0

      hahaha that’s very first character came to my mind when reading kohl.
      and yes she was indeed Antagonist during the initial days (not completely) but yes, she dint like Gopi to go near Aham (mother’s insecurities)… later down the line she became a better MIL for Gopi.
      and the reason i am writing long description is i was a bigggg fan of that show that i still remember when it starts airing, made many MV for GoHam
      *peaking from my pillow*
      but dropped it the moment Jia Manek was replaced by a new actress to play Gopi Vahu.
      ok.. samachar samapat. Namaste.
      *please dont judge me based on my love for this one indian drama*

      2
      3

        LOL! I couldn’t think of anyone else! Yes, I remember my mom complaining about her being replaced, she loved Gopi and thought Jia Manek was perfect as her, she also dropped it after a while because she couldn’t get used to the new Gopi!

        That’s why I stopped watching Hindi serials, the leads get replaced all the time and that’s just so irritating, plus the music and the focus on the same scene over and over again, like get to the point! Last Indian drama I watched was Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, and I remember everyone and their mother was so head over heels for Arnav Singh Raizada 🙈😂

        And no worries, I don’t judge 😀🤚

        2
        1

          ahh thats a relief to not to be judged.
          i agree indian drama tends to make things over dramatic, with all that music, makeup etc. they cant keep things simple like kdramas and follow a good script…. thats the reason i stopped any drama after SNS. i was so badly addicted to it, joined one indian drama forum, became mod, spent my 3 years on it and then had to leave everything cause it turned so boring then.
          i still love that serial (Jia’s time) so much and esp Jia and Nazim together.

          Iss pyar ko kya naam doon was superb, cute with Hot Barun Sobti. Many of my friends loved that drama and esp Barun.. they used to stop whatever they were doing to watch it on tv… lol craze you can say.

    I have to admit, this made me laugh ….. particularly the part of the “accompanying evil music”. I’m suddenly imagining those productions with the over-the-top musical fanfare …… because sometimes you just have to emphasize who the villain is (even though it’s been obvious since they first appeared onscreen!) LOL!

      Don’t worry. ..I never liked watching hindi serials. .they all had to put on heavy makeup for the villains while the heroine was always plain looking. ..atleast most of the serials I saw…at one point the inevitable happened…I stopped watching

Quick question- should I watch WPL or AM 94?

1
5

While everyone is going crazy over the finale of JBL, I was a caveman and was binging reply 1988- cos I was too nervous about GD’s fate. Anyway I finished watching and am absolutely mind blown…I guess it will be a close competition between this and R97 for my favourite…
I knew that this season was going to focus more on families and they didn’t disappoint.. all sorts of love were depicted beautifully .. whether it was Jung Hwan and his mom, Bora and dad or taek and dad, the parents love for each other, the friends whether the pentad or the ahjumma trio or the found family of Sun woo and Taek…everything was great..I just felt that the main romance was shortchanged…I know this series wasn’t focused on that much but I felt that when SW and Bora’s romance could get that much screentime,surely they could’ve spent some more time on the love triangle too..I mean the episodes were FREAKING LONG! And IMO some scenes were dragged out like the scene at the police station with DS and NE’s parents with his gf or the scene of the fathers playing go stop…it was really difficult for me to watch the first episode cos there were endless scenes of the mothers sitting on the bench outside and talking about stuff…but once I got past that this series really sucked me in against my better judgement. Like I said they could’ve spent some of that time on the love triangle..
My main complaint-so much less screentime for Taek! I know I’m being selfish-I think that everyone got more or less the same screentime but maybe I’m biased cos Its PBG and I started this for him! I got another guy to swoon on ofc-Jung hwan- I was and always will be team Taek- but I’m wondering if I didn’t like PBG would I feel the same way? Even though I knew the end game it still hurt so much. I knew about the faux confession at the end of ep 18 but when it happened-still wasn’t prepared for the unexpected hurt and couldn’t stop myself from having a lump in my throat. I respect DS’s choice for choosing the guy who showed her his affections more openly and I respect that JH also realized when he lost his chance and stepped back gracefully…it’s just that I’m angry at him for having missed all those opportunities…cos I’m pretty sure he had more time in the initial episodes and if he had just been a bit more proactive…I wouldn’t have mind either of the guys ending up with her…but you spend so much time showing us his crush but not letting it show to the girl …while the other guy hardly has screentime to show his feelings…I felt all 3 characters in this loveline were robbed of their screentime…it is criminal to underutilize PBG you hear me? (LOL just my opinion)…I felt even his time with dad was shown so less…the fact that he made a huge impact in that limited time shows what an amazing actor he is…or it is my love for him…I will never know…
Sorry for the long rant. Just wanted to share my thoughts on what was rightly a highly appreciated series and why it received so much love here. I’m sorry if I brought back heartbreaking memories for some and happy if it’s the opposite.

    I was surprised by how much I liked 1988! 1997 is still my favorite because 1988 was just TOO DANG LONG. Both in episode count and length! But I just adored the focus on family in 1988. 💖

          Like IRY too…but just like how SIG is my first love R97 is my first drama love hehe…so for first loves it’ll still be at the top..

    I don’t know if it’s because I watched R88 before R1997 or because of PBG (watched the drama for him) but it’s my favorite Reply series. I rooted for Taek from the beginning but I was also not happy with what they did to JungHwan.

    Also, you should have watched it when it aired. The fanwars this drama created was crazy. Lol

      R97 is still my #1 followed very very very closely by BTLIOF. After that I can’t possibly rank my favorite dramas because it causes me physical pains, but JBL is very high up there!

    I guess it’s pretty obvious that 88 is my favorite of the 3. 😂 I watched all three in the order they were released and I was so amazed that even at the third installment, Answer Me still managed to really deliver well. 😊 I think it’s because of this installment’s focus on families that I wasn’t really bothered at all about the episode length. I just enjoyed watching the neighborhood spend all that time without mobile phones and easy access to internet.

    And the main OTP. Oh gosh. I loved Taekkie + DS at the onset. But my wounded heart from R94 was so scared to trust anything. When the show was being deliberate about not showing that much Taekkie in the initial episodes, I told myself I have to steer clear of Taekkie+DS ship. Otherwise it’ll be another Chilbongie heartbreak for me. And I’m not sure if I can still handle one more of those heartbreaks. 😂 But by episode 18 (I live watched it), I surrendered. I came to a point that I was rooting so much for DS that I just want her to be happy. I will ship her with whoever she wants, and I’ll celebrate with her. So imagine my bliss when the show actually gave me Taekkie+DS at the end. 😍♥️😍♥️

      Yeah your username makes it pretty obvious hehe…
      Even I was fine with her choosing either of the guys . I’m actually happy she chose taek not only cos I like PBG but also it made more sense for her to choose the guy who actually showed her his feelings rather than the guy who didn’t. .

    I agree SO SO much with what you said about Taek. That was exactly my problem with his character. I could never connect to him.

    And I agree with what you said about the different screen-times. And everything else 😁. Although I too, loved it, and have rewatched it a few times, but in my opinion they sacrificed good story-telling for needless secrecy.

    2
    1

      Actually I did connect to him. ..He made very good use of whatever screen time was available to him. ..I just wish it was more. ..I think most of the people had that problem- they didn’t see his POV so that’s why they felt that the loveline was sudden..also I wanted to see more of their relationship once it did happen..

      2
      1

        As I was spoilered and knew the ending I didn’t think it sudden. I was on the lookout for the tiniest bit of his storyline. But still I felt they kept him an enigma on purpose.

R88 ep 5- loved all the various forms of mother’s love even though I can’t express it in words…maybe mother’s love is like that…indescribable…or maybe I’m not good enough with words…so I’m gonna be totally superficial and leave this screencap of one of my favourite scenes of this episode apart from the mothers(which are too many and I can’t take so many screencaps and even if I did,it won’t do justice to them)

            Do you mean the smoking part? I noticed it too (now obviously- if I was live watching I would’ve been too dumb to pick it up). And also going by these first few episodes I would’ve never guessed the end game.

    Oh totally. Even if you like Taekie more, Junghwan is gonna make you cry. I was in neither ship as I loved the overall story more than ‘who gets the girl’ thing but I cried buckets! Also, I was kinda prepared- cuz one has to expect the unexpected from the AM team 😛

      I didn’t watch 94 but I heard about broken hearts in that too. ..as for 97 the brother didn’t really have a chance did he? I guess most were satisfied that she ended up with SIG

      2
      1

        Lol yes! Though I watched it much later after SIG had already established himself as a hero so I never doubted that it would be the bro…

        But I guess ppl who were watching it right when it was airing could have been interested in the mystery and you never know, some might have been rooting for the older bro- though personally I don’t see how! SIG was brilliant! 😀

          I had given up on kdramas. ..till this show and SIG pulled me back! He’s my first love from kdramas.

            I don’t think SIG was the first kpop actor I loved (or the last either)… that would most probably be Kim Soo Hyun, followed by Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin… but he came and just jumped to my Top Fav in one swoop! The drama was I Remember You! I had seen SIG before and liked him a lot but IRY made me love him and then I went back to all the shows of his I had already watched- AM97, KoHS, Master’s Sun, even the movie No Breathing and loved him even more!

            Interestingly IRY was also the show that made me comment on Dramabeans for the first time!

Started R88 cos apparently I need more heartbreak (after JBL) and also I miss PBG. But where is he? Just for few minutes in the first two eps? Also this is quite misleading..

    if memory serves me right he doesnt appear much in the first few eps & hardly talks too. I started watching cause of PBG but by the time i finished i was firmly in #teamjunghwan

What can I do? shouldn’t whatsapp have some feature to ask our permission before adding us to groups? Is there something I can do? I can’t keep blocking all 256 members- even after that there’s no guarantee. And its a hassle to delete my account or change my no- what to do?

      If you have access to the FB group remove your number from it that what you should do first or ask the admin of the harry Potter group to remove it for you.
      And that’s way you won’t get added to new WhatsApp groups.
      I hope this solve your problem.

    Hello, fellow water maid! One example that I found is Dong Yi. Someone also said that Hae Soo from Moon Lovers and heroine of Jang Ok Jung are also water maid. Basically, a lowly palace lady who finally got to be with the king. 😁😁

        I haven’t watched any of them but I think I’ve heard good things about Dong Yi. If you want recommendations on sageuk, maybe @kiara could help you with that?
