      🥺🥺 love that vid sm!! even tho i’m team junghwan (i am still not over him, it’s crazy), i could never be mad or hate taek– he’s so pure. i think deoksun had to choose the person who was more courageous. but ugh it just kills me so much that all that kept junghwan from his first love was “that damn timing” *insert flood of tears* — i still cannot finish episode 18 without crying

it’s officially 10:30 am, september 17 in korea, which makes today the 32nd anniversary of the 1988 olympics, which were held in seoul. MEANING… today is my favorite character, sung deoksun’s birthday!!

i don’t really know why i love reply 1988 SO MUCH that i think about it this often— maybe it’s because the show made ssangmun-dong and that year so full of heart and such a happy place that i miss watching it so much, i really felt like i’d lived with the characters after that. i just got super excited today (and am now listening to hand in hand by koreana to commemorate the olympics 😎)

anyway, deoksun is my absolute favorite character i’ve seen in a drama. she’s very kind, made me laugh like crazy, and she’s so relatable. there’s also something about her character that makes my heart ache— she’s not the brightest at school, she’s poor, she has boy troubles, and is the middle child. i teared up when she cried, because there’s just something about her that makes me want to always root for her. many people also complain that her character in later episodes didn’t show her feelings abt the husband situation, which i totally get (and am also STILL heartbroken abt my second lead who is my fave male character in a drama T_T), but you have to remember that she’s still young and unsure how she’d feel. in the end, reply 1988 does have a few flaws (like deoksun), but the show is so warm and wholehearted (also like deoksun) that i wish i could watch it all again for the first time and relive those precious moments again.

uri deoksunnie, 생일 축하해 ! 🙂

ps. today would also be sung sun woo’s birthday!!

    Wow, thanks for pointing that out, it makes me realize that I was hosting a Korean Olympics Opening party 32 years ago tonight 🤦🏼‍♀️ omg I’m so old. I served bulgogi (can’t believe I could even find bulgogi sauce here in 1988) and kimchi and had embroidered Olympics logo handkerchiefs (I had bought in Seoul) for all the guests. Amazing. I was so happy to see 1988 the Show.

i’m gonna start posting more music recs on my fan wall bc a) it’s just really fun! and b) db is way more open to listening to korean music than my friends *rolls eyes*.

my first recommendation is the song destiny (인연) by lee sun hee, which was made for the king and the clown ost. this song is 15 years old, but i just discovered it about a month ago, and it might be one of the most beautiful songs i’ve ever heard. i don’t even think you need to have watched the king and the clown or even know korean to know how emotional and meaningful this song is. i’ve really liked other songs by lee sun hee but “destiny” is on a WHOLE nother level, and if you haven’t listened to this, you’re missing out!!

also i found out a couple days ago that the auditorium i (with my choir) performed in at carnegie hall is the SAME STAGE that my idol LEE. SUN. HEE ( and even lee seung gi !!! bc he made a surprise appearance) PERFORMED ON. i freaked out for a good hour or two because WHAT IF I LITERALLY STOOD ON THE SAME SPOT AS HER?? made my whole day and i’m so starstruck.

happy listening!

    I really like Lee Sun Hee. She did an episode of Yu Huiyeol’s sketchbook and I converted the YouTube clips to mp3s so I can listen to the renditions of the songs she performed. They were so beautiful and her voice is amazing. I was actually thinking about her a lot the past couple of days so it’s funny you posted about her LOL.

    Lol, the spreadsheet! You’re mine kind of people.

      GIRL, if you think that’s a spreadsheet, then you’re not ready for my kdrama spreadsheet! my friends are terrified of that– it’s color-coded by total score, and has subratings for the romance, humor, sadness, chemistry and OST and info like where you can watch these shows, # of eps, tags, genres and a bunch more. made that when i was fueled by coffee one day.

      if i put as much effort into school or college apps like i did with kdramas, i’d be valedictorian by now. too bad school has a lot less oppas and joy *sigh*

      totally! i watched strong girl bong soon last year and reply 1997 this year but had no idea she was in apink and such a talented singer– i thought she was just an actor! my jaw dropped when i realized she was the one that sang you’re my garden

        I just found out that she sang this ost from strong woman through your post eventhough I was aware she was a singer and yah I was pretty amazed and excited at this discovery too XD

          LMAO one day i was listening to this song and then i saw the singer was jung eun ji and i was like “… is it that jung eun ji? no way” and then i googled it and freaked OUT!! the same thing happened with kim chang wan– i never realized the actor from my love from another star was the same legendary lead singer of sanullim i just thought two guys had the same name HAHA
