The second installment of the Answer Me franchise (see: Answer Me 1997), featuring college students all living under one roof in a family's boarding house. The ensemble youth drama is about country bumpkins transplanted to the big city, and the friendships that make a strange place feel like home. Features one of the most epic love triangles in all of dramaland, between Oppa (Jung Woo), Chilbongie (Yoo Yeon-seok), and the girl they both love (Go Ara). Seriously, there was bloodshed in these fanwars.

javabeans: With She Was Pretty, Answer Me 1988, and the upcoming Oh My Venus in our collective consciousness at the moment, we’re reminded once again that dramaland loves its image ruinations. Or maybe it’s just that audiences love pretty people making themselves look uglier for the sake of drama. Not that they look actually ugly,... More »
