    i like this series and all my fav but just i didnt agree why jung won with Gyeo Wool…the character not interesting ..

  26. 26 : nischuu Says:

    Wow the series really dive-in with the current reality in hospital, it is so real that I almost gasp about how fun it was. I watched this with so much joy, laugh until being such a crying baby.

    Nice plotting, good storyline, even clean and smooth directing combining friendship, family and even love ones.

    I felt so touch with connection the doctors build with the patients, so kindhearted and understanding patient in any type of way, its somehow one of the amazing key. Even their powerful friendship really does reflect me that the friend that been with you the longest is the one knows you really well.

    Since its my first time watching this series before Reply and overall satisfied. Felt like I gotta give a shot for the rest of the series. 🙂

    You’ve work hard all casts & staff, they’re really doing a great job and looking forward to S2.

  27. 27 : KimO Says:

    I love all 3 lead actors, Yoon Suk, Jong Suk & Kyung Ho and episode One was amusing & I was excited to watch the next episode. But very sorry to say I tried very hard but I couldn’t finish episode Two. It became boring for me.

  28. 28 : tigerb Says:

    friends forever drama series worth watching.

  29. 29 : sabi Says:

    as a fan of reply 1988 and wise prison (and shinwonho pd), i really enjoy this drama soooo much. cant wait for the 2nd season!

    and i do love the story between jung won with Gyeo Wool 😍
