A heartwarming family drama set in the year of 1988. The story will focus on five families live on the same alley road.

1988 was a big year in South Korea. It was the year of the Seoul Olympics, the 1988 College Festival and for the first time in many years, Koreans could travel outside of South Korea. Not only was 1988 a big year in the world of news, education and sports, it was a big year for music in general and K-Pop in particular. In fact, 1988 was the year that Lee Soo Man achieved his dream of giving South Korea a taste of MTV style dance and music through the creation of SM Entertainment. Cho Yong Pil (“Mona Lisa”), Kim Wan Sun (“Too Lonely to Dance Alone”) and Lee Moon Se (“Sunset Glow”) were riding high in the music world. So it’s no surprise that Reply’s third season would focus in on such a monumental year as 1988.

    Sadly but happy, is that a good way to express how i feel… This is the best reply that i ever watch..

    Really rooting for JH but Teac took big initiatives to show his love for her in eps 18.. If not bcuz of the traffic light the history of this drama would be different. Fair enough…

    I waited for a full eng sub eps after reading that Taec is the husband & really hope there’s website will upload behind the scene fully subbed.. Is great to watch how the casts interact with each other as now they are like one big happy family.. hihi

    Off tomorrow for Cheese in Trap ep6.. 🙂

    Isra Says:

    It was very interesting drama ever I laughed and cried a lot but what was not right here is the relation between the two Taek and Deoksun, it seems as a sympathy more than love! I don’t know any body noticed that Taek is a sort of a sick boy!! it’s what they call it othisim (I really knew it very well because my son has that sickness). If any one remember the movie in the 80’s (Rain Man) Raymond (Dustin Hoffman), and Tom Cruise, Raymond is an autistic savant so he was very intelligent in some kind of maters and he was lagging in fine things such as he can’t tie his shoelace. Then I think the writer played a game with us and the drama’s Characters by attracting us to like Taek and sympathy him. In the end of the drama he seemed as if he is cured in some way, and that is impossible to be cured from this sickness because he was born with it, and things like marriage is a confusing matter for these people it was very clear in the scene when he got angry when he saw her dancing with laud music it’s really confuse them so how can he live as a normal person. I admire these people but not to play with their feeling and ours.

    Worst ending ever! Taek’s role wasn’t even that strong compared to Jung Hwan, so seriously, Why Taek?????? why not Jung Hwan????? And what happened to Dong Ryong in the end??? Also, why was the wedding of Bora and Sun Woo shown?? Nobody was interested to see that!!! Why do I feel stupid for watching that ending????? Really DISAPPOINTED!

    I’m glad that it’s Taek! I don’t hate Jung Hwan but I think Taek deserved Duk Seon at its best! Hyeri and Park Bo Gum chemistry is no joke! They’re so cute together!

    tsuyoi_hikari Says:

    Kind of sad that people are so obsessed with who is the husband when in reality the love story is only like 20% of the whole drama — and that includes other characters’ love stories as well.

    The drama is amazing in term of acting and script and no doubt it is the best out of the Reply series.

    Thought since early on that Junghwan gonna be the husband but the writer surprised us all with revealing to us that it is Taek instead. The writer proved to be unpredictable in her writing so I’m anticipating her next drama!

    Rose T Says:

    Just finished watching the series. I was curious to find out about the brouhaha created by the ending which left many of Jung Kwang and Taek’s shippers bash at each other.

    In my opinion, Taek deserved to get the girl because once he found out that JK has given up on Duk Seon, he did not hesitate on showing his feelings; although at first, he tried to give JK a chance to confess. He kept in feeling hidden for 6 years because he did not want to offend his fried. I loved how he showed that DS is most important person to him when he forfeited his game just to be with her side. They complement each other’s personality. DS is lively, boisterous, happy go luck but a very caring person; while Taek is withdrawn, lonely but very determined, competitive but most importantly – decisive.

    Jung Kwan on the other hand, loves his family more than Duk Seon. He lived
    the dream of his brother and have completely given up on DS. He hesitated so many times to confess and kept his feelings to himself. Being a coward will not get you the girl in the end.

    Finally, AM 1988 is the best in the series. And I will not hesitate to watch it again to experience once more the sweet moments between my favorite characters – DS and Taekki.

    I watched this drama after being clear about ending so that I don’t get hurt…but throughout the series I got my eyes on jung hwan..even knowing that he is going to be heartbroken .. Is it only me who doesn’t find any emotion in taek..yeah duk seon and taek looks cute couple but taek has no emotion at all….Ending was best for everyone except jung hwan that makes ending a worst here…

    nunu Says:

    i thinked hubby game for this season so easy. just one person who can be interviewed. in the opening adult duksun said “we meet” so just one person that “she meet in sammundong”. etc etc

    i love duksun so much, she so kindness n lovely, she’s not same like sung najung n sung shiwon so no wonder her hubby is different too. duksun so precious for man who called her ugly n just bickering when he saw her. she not strong like reply’s girls before. duksun need person who can showing love for her coz she just insecurity girl, she need certain love. she need man who just happy n smile when saw her.
    and Junghwan, i thinked just god, him and viewers who know his heart, but not duksun. we just viewers not sungduksun.
    i love this pdnim. i think he slapped other drama about noble idiot. and i hate noble idiot. plisss save our ears for bickering.

    mia Says:

    i love scene in ep 18 when duksun alone in leesunghwan concert. that scene explained about two man for duksun.

    JH : he so hesitated, he going when movie near ending.
    TK : he make history for forfeit his match in first time. dont forget he slow when driving and always lost direction.

    and do u still ask who the best man for kindess and lovely duksun???

    ryry Says:

    I really love this drama. Family genre always makes me smile, laugh and then cry. The plot is the best! I can not guess who DukSun’s husband is. I think the sosial life among neighbors like in this drama was very rare to be find at this time. People live in harmony. Sending food among neighbors. Asking to eat food on one table together. Helping each other.

    But IDK that I don’t like BoRa, haha. Sometimes I skip watching BoRa with SunWoo. For me, they don’t have chemistry. What a poor man, Jung Hwan. Yeah a man must be brave to express his feelings, his love. Woman always wait a man. Who first come, he will win. Or Maybe who kiss first, he will win. haha.

    Congrats this drama makes me can not move on for several days , hehe <3

    So far, R88 the best drama ever. Although it takes abt 90 minute in each ep, but I think its worth it. I easily get bored with drama which is takes long time in each ep, then I skip some part, but not for R88. R88 teach us many lesson and reason to stop complaining each other, be grateful and appreciate for what you have now.

    This is the best kdrama I’ve watched so far. The plot twist and turns, the story about life, family, love, friends, success and failures and challenges made me cried at least 16 times all throughout the entire drama. It gives much lessons to learn as an individual, family, friend, lover, parent, brothers and sisters, neighbors. All the cast were amazing and talented. If by any chance, I’ll give this drama a 98% rating.

    In love with Chicago Typewriter OST | A Transient Wanderer Says:

    […] After survived from a challenging week, I reward myself by watching ongoing kdrama. Currently obsessed with Chicago Typewriter which is very underrated, IMHO. This drama is superb. It definitely will be one of the best drama in my list. So, please bare with me. I’m going to rant a lot over this drama. At first, I was curious about Im Soo Jung (@soojunglim_) who comeback to dramaland after 13 years off. She is so great in I’m Sorry I Love You also …Ing and many other movies. Yoo Ah In (@hongsick) also draws my attention since he always play a challenging character, meaningful if I may say. Just look at his previous work such as Sungkyungkwan Scandal, Fashion King, Jang Ok Jung. There is also Go Kyung Pyo (@kopular) which left good impression on me after Flower Boy Next Door and Reply 1988. […]
