This drama will focus on the extreme fan culture that emerged in the 1990s when idol groups took center stage and K-pop was blossoming.

It tells the story of 6 former high school friends from a school in Busan who meet again in 2012 and brings back memories to 1997 when they were still high school students.

    GREAT DRAMA, i thought this drama is boring because of the title, and the way they talk (Busan dialect) thats why i did not watch this drama.

    But, recently when i watch all the top/most drama every one says its the best drama that they watch, and also the comments, that why i watch it, and DAEBAK it’s nostalgic specially the the sound of the goat.

    PLEASE WATCH! you will like it

    Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!

    I first watched this drama during its broadcast period because of curiosity as it was often menyioned in allkpop and soompi. Then I tried to watch the first episodes and felt like “this is just so me!” Eventhough I was born in 1995, I just could feel the passion on shi won and I’m not tryong to overact but I think I’m really similar to shi won. This drama is so realistic and could relate to every days issue. The romance is so asdicting and sweet. A drama doesn’t have to have a chaebol character or a bad boy or a veryyy perfect second lead or a dumb lead female. It could be a combination fantasy and realistic like this drama. Having a boyfriend who waited and only liked you for all his life and being an ordinary fangirl and busan girl at the same could make a great drama like this. I just found it quite boring in ep 10 I thought. But after the karaoke confession, it was really addicting. Totally recommended!
