Beanie level: Errand boy

Third time lucky? I loved AM 1997 and AM 1988 but I’ve failed to get past episode 1 of Answer Me 1994 in the past. I’m getting round it this time by starting at episode 2! Wish me luck beanies. 😬

    I only watched AM1997, the other two are on my to watch list, anyway wishing you luck with AM1994 🙂

      Thanks. I think it was the same for the first episode of AM 1997 actually. All a bit over the top and loud and it took a while to get used to all the screeching!

    This might sound crazy to other beanies but Reply 1994 is my favorite of the three! I don’t know but I just loved this group more than the others!
    Episode 2 is where Yoo Yeon-seok makes his 1st appearance so you might like it!

      Yeah. He turned up right at the end of the episode! I’ll see how it goes but I think it will be hard to beat 1988.

        Yeah? Reply 1988 is more family-oriented but this one is all about the love triangle, you need to choose your ship right or else you’ll get one of the worst heartbreaks ever!

          Oh. Well. Unfortunately, I already know all of that! It would have been more interesting watching live of course. 🙂

      I love R94 too for the same reason you said! I actually watched the drama thrice ‘cos I missed the gang so much ♥

        YAY! We are rare, I tell you! There aren’t many beanies who love this one better, LOL!
        Yes, I’ve re-watched it a lot, still do but not all of it, just my favorite scenes!

    I have only watched 1988 and loved it so very much… and started 1994 with so much anticipation and couldn’t complete first episode. as you said it was so loud and over the top. i am still hoping ill be able to finish it on my second attempt somewhere in future.

    btw all the best and fighting fellow beanie.

    Hurt so GOOD because Yoo Seung Ho is BRILLIANT, with a bittersweet ending

      I wanted to see him in something else after I’m Not a Robot and there is a good cast.

    Wait until you see Namgoong Min in the role of crazy, bad person in this!

      “Remember – Son’s War” and “Girl Who Sees Smells” solidified Namgoong Min’s actor and oppa status for me!! LOL

        He was great in Chief Kim but it’s interesting to see him as a bad guy here.

        1

          I’m considering “Chief Kim” because *coughJunhocough* lol And Namgoong Min also helps hehehe

            Junho was great. They made a good pair but Chief Kim’s Team was great too. I watched Just Between Lovers because I saw he was going to be in it and having seen him in Chief Kim knew he would be good.

Taking a break in Secret Love Affair but it’s bound to cost them dear as everyone is on to them and using this as an opportunity.

    This reminds me that the love affair was hardly secret in this show. ^^

    1

      Yes. It’s definitely a not so secret love affair! I’m hoping they make it out alive. It’s interestingly shot. Nearly always indoors and not many windows you see the characters from across a room etc. This weekend away is one of the few times they are in the countryside but you still only glimpse it.

I finally finished watching Just Between Lovers this morning. This beautiful uplifting story was so well crafted and delivered. It was just perfect. 💕

It seems several beanies are watching Arang and the Magistrate at the moment. 🙂 It reminded me that I had seen Yoo Seung-ho in a drama before I’m not a Robot. Jade Emperor!

    Got interested in YSH because of this drama. I guess you one of my kinks is the godly mane.

    I called him the “19-year-old” at the time because I can’t believe he’s younger than me lol

    I forgot he was in this!! That was such a weird but fun drama.

        Same! I have just started Hwayugi and it made me think of all the weird fantasy elements of Arang that I really enjoyed!

I finished Youth over Flowers: Africa. The lads made it to Victoria Falls by the deadline. My Dad went to there when he was young so I wanted to watch this series first. Next up Winner!

    Hope you enjoy it!
    I feel personally responsible for you liking this whole series now cuz I recommended it to you! 😛

      You don’t have to do that! Although it is a funny feeling when you recommend something to your friends and they don’t like it as much. I thought it was really fun, actually and just goes to show that if you ask nicely and you’ve got a film crew with you it gets you quite a long way. Winner next anyway. 🙂

        Hahha.. true though!
        I liked YoF Africa but I used FF button sometimes.. YoF Australia/Winner was comparatively shorter and I loved it a lot!

          My favorite YoF is Laos. Those boys were so cute and fun together and the Seo-jin-inspired twist at the end is gold.

          2
          3

            I watched 2 episodes of Laos sometime back because of Son Ho Jun, got busy with something and then didn’t go back but I plan to.. That kidnapping was quite hilarious!

            1
            0

            I want to watch Laos too. Is that the series where they were using a credit card? I was going to wait until I’d watched AM 1994.

            1
            0

            They didn’t have a credit card so it was a little bit sneakier than that.

            What I love about the Over Flowers series is that you really don’t need to know the people involved in advance. At that time, I really only knew Baro from that group and I haven’t ever watched AM 1994. I just love the show itself that I don’t care who they cast. I’ve seen almost all of them (GoF, NoF, and YoF). I’ve only skipped Africa and I need to still watch Winner’s.

          I felt almost bad for Na PD because they really didn’t get what was happening until he spelled it out for them. The poor boys were just so excited for the lies their managers fed them lol

          1
          2

            Hhaha.. the boys were in their own world! I however never feel bad for Na PD… He is too crafty to ever worry about! 😛

            Na PD is super sneaky though!

            1
            0

          That is true. My favorite scenes are when the cast can get Na PD riled up or scammed. I love when Na PD lost the bet to cross a rope bridge that was high over a ravine. He was freaking out so bad while Seung-jae ran back and forth twice.

          2
          2

            Oh where did that happen??

            My fav was njttw4 when he had to apologize for not being able to give that Porsche and Lamborghini even though Mino succeeded cuz he just wrote that as a joke! 😂😂😂

          Na PD should have taken out insurance for the expensive cars @obsessed much I had to help organise a golf day once and there was a prize of a very expensive Mercedes if someone got a hole in one and we were insured for that just in case!

          1
          1

            Oh no.. the cars were the prize! So he would have had to buy the cars for the members! No actual expensive cars were bought 😄

We’ll be re-watching then for a while. Keep safe!

    A two-episode spinoff of just these two before the third season of AOY would be awesome too!!

        Heck yeah! Age of SSongSungmin needs to happen NOW!!! There must be some overnight investigative trips which are necessary to do a newspaper story justice. You are the editor, Sung-min, make it happen (also for your love)!

    Yes, please!

    But I still get depressed thinking about the fact that Ssong dies in just a few years. I feel like throughout all of season 3 I would just be thinking about that and it would make me very sad.

      That’s true of course but at least we would get to see her fulfil some of her potential.

I followed Park Hee-soon from Evasive Inquiry Agency to Missing Noir M and found Kim Kang-woo as well. I was on the edge of my seat for the first two episodes.

I finally found time to go back and finish Japanese drama A Girl and Three Sweethearts. Beautiful seaside scenery and that light you only get by the sea. Magic.
