Hello guys! Long time no see!
Now, we will come up with a new hot K-Drama titled "Reply 1997" or also known as Response 1997, Answer Me 1997, or its Korean name 응답하라 1997 (read : Eungdabhara 1997).
The first scene shows a 33-years-old woman named Sung Shiwon. She attends her school's reunion and meets some old best-friends from her high school time. The drama then goes back and forth to 1997 (Sung Shiwon's high school time) and 2012.
This drama is filled with a lot of funny and romantic scenes between Sung Shiwon and her closest best-friend Yoon Yoonje, who is her friend since they were babies (their parents are also best-friends).
This drama also makes us guess who will be Shiwon's husband. Yoon Yoonje (her closest best-friend who later realizes that he loves Shiwon) or Yoon Taewoong (Yoonje's elder brother, Shiwon's late elder sister's ex-boyfriend who later confesses his feeling towards Shiwon).
A lot of unpredictable things come up in this drama. This is a brand new drama, with a fresh storyline that you had never seen before!
