  1. 1 : Drama Korea Terbaru Says:

    Just curious about the release date of this drama soon!

    Here it is the latest Korean drama of the most eagerly awaited by lovers of K-dramas of various ages. If we usually watched the young faces, both newcomers and those who have pocketed the experience in the world of acting, this time we will be able to watch the drama which we witness together with our parents.

  2. 2 : Hannah Says:

    Why do I feel like this drama is going to be a great drama? Because TvN so far has never disappointed me.

  3. 3 : tigerb Says:

    which should it be: ‘dear, my friends’ or ‘my dear friends’.

  4. 4 : uu Says:

    nice drama because this writer wrote the “its okay thats love” fight fight!!!

  5. 5 : kiki Says:

    great cast. love them to bits

  6. 6 : kdrama Says:

    nice hope it coming soon

  7. 7 : Suna Says:


  8. 8 : tigerb Says:

    what a ruckus at first episode. don’t know if i should follow through.

  9. 9 : K-dorama Says:

    Tigerb, definitely worth it to follow through.

    Yes i agree tvn so far has not disapppoint. I totally am into the drama they chose.

    For this, even though the casts are those in their ‘golden years’ without the usual kdrama pretty boys n girls, it is still amazing story. Heart warming, touching and near our hearts. Definitely recommended.

  10. 10 : Amethyst Says:

    Song Hye Kyo recommended this drama, I watched 5 episodes and will continue till the end the episode. Totally loved it, makes me wonder about the future when I’m old and gray… I hope I have friends to relied on.

  11. 11 : tigerb Says:

    @K-dorama: thanks for the recommendation. i don’t have a problem with a cast of old people, it’s just that they were all so noisy at one go, but it can be expected, specially that they have bearable or unbearable/clashing personalities. i’ll go back!

  12. 12 : Dameda Says:

    This Drama is Brilliant!
    You can found so many kind of Love!
    Love with you Parents, Your adoption Parents, Your single Mom, your ex-, Friends… etc
    It is a different, loving, funny, strong Drama this year!
    And all the actors and actress all the BEST!

  13. 13 : park jun sung Says:

    @tigerb haii nice to meet u here. Well this drama is good, especially for me. The writer has put hard effort to build the story, i guess. Cz i think the topic in the story is hard, and at least writer should research what old people do , what they though, what they problem.
    Honestly i watch this drama is becoz the writer is theone whi wrore that winter the wind blow. Actually its quite good drama to watch without flower boy and pretty woman as the main cast…

  14. 14 : park jun sung Says:

    Haishhh sorry for too many typo. I mean in the last sentence is drama dear my friends, not TWTWB.

  15. 15 : tigerb Says:

    hi park jun sung! yours is the second high recommendation to watch this drama. i take yours and K-dorama words for it. now i shall continue to ep 2. cheers!

  16. 16 : norlela Says:

    i like this kind of drama.
    keep it up drama crew

  17. 17 : Sissy Says:

    What a great drama..I will continue to watch this 🙂

  18. 18 : yuwi Says:

    really like kind drama like this. beautiful story…. aaaa eps 8 is more attractive. ajja ajja

  19. 19 : Jyenie Says:

    This drama is very good. All these veteran actors act so well. It’s so much better than That winter the wind blows which I dropped after a few episodes.

  20. 20 : Emily Says:

    After episode 5, I can’t stop sobbing, every scene has touched my heart. This drama touches on the love between friendship, mother and daughter, married couple, past loves… Writer Noh has done it again. This script is so meaningful that it has made me to rethink my actions and thoughts towards my parents, my friends, even to strangers that I do not know. I bow to all of you who are in your golden years, who endure all goods and bads in life, may everyday be as joyful as it can be for you and your family.

  21. 21 : Jill Says:

    This is the best show running right now. None of the others interest me. Love the older cast, they all work brilliantly together. I get tired of teen and twenty somethings shows when I’m pushing 60. As populations age K-drama better address their needs and not just the teenyboppers.

  22. 22 : Jyenie Says:

    This drama is so so good especially ep 10. Very beautiful scenery and love to see that Park Wan and Yeon Ha finally reunite😍 very touching.
    Keep up the good work, TVN👍👏

  23. 23 : tigerb Says:

    ep. 14: children get all shamelessly selfish (that’s what i read in the english subs). that’s not true. people’s priorities change . when a person marries, the priority now is the spouse, like the parent no longer is responsible for the child.

  24. 24 : Emily Says:

    Absolutely love the ending. Wish I can spend my late years like these friends, lots of love and no regrets. What more can you ask for? Such a nice cadt!!! Definitely is a highly recommended drama.

  25. 25 : tigerb Says:

    the stories of their lives intertwined by love and friendship. one would wish having so many real friends when he grows old, to share the laughs and sadness of old age. it’s a great watch. towards the end of the last episode, there was a mention of ‘selfish’ but i could not quite understand what was being imparted. the cast was very good, but i liked the lady who had early signs of dementia. the actor nailed her part.
    young people should watch this drama, maybe so they can understand what old people go through.

  26. 26 : elizabeth Says:

    Thank for TVn this drama awesome…

  27. 27 : uli Says:

    looking my self as daughter and makes me missed my friend.. love the story

  28. 28 : tigerb Says:

    two people suggested that i watch this drama. i finished it but the duo probably did not. i no longer saw a comment from them since their suggestion. just saying.

  29. 29 : park jun sung Says:

    hai tigerb. hehe i guess who u mean is me. no no, i have finished watch this drama until its end. i just think that i dont need write comment, cz actually here there is no conversation to follow, hehe. well actually this drama is interesting. and i like the way how director shoot every parts ofthe scene. beautiful. i m on jealousy incarnate thread, and probably will follow Goblin thread.

  30. 30 : moviewa Says:

    one from many drama korea very good

  31. 31 : Movie Sub Indo Says:

    good drama korea, i like it

  32. 32 : Download Film Says:

    i very like drama korea Dear My Friends, I will continue to watch this

  33. 33 : Peggy Sue Goldsmith Says:

    This one hits home in many ways…I miss my Umma!!! No one is supposed to talk about bad memories but this raw life drama goes there. It will make you laugh, cry and miss the past.

  34. 34 : [email protected] Says:

    I absolutely loved this drama, beautiful talented casting, poignant writing and cinematography.
    The sentiments, desires, wants of the lives of older generations needs to be recognised as they were once young, careless dreamers and full of wonder too. We seems to forget that those who love us don’t want us to make the same mistakes as them but don’t how to necessarily tell us through kind words or actions as probably no one ever taught them how to.
    Thank you to all those who made this drama series happen as everyone should watch it.
