Overall its a cute and funny story, though…

Overall its a cute and funny story, though i fasforwarded last episodes, because i didnt really like the main couple, i thought her relationship with his brother was better, i dont know why some people find couples constantly fighting endearing.
I was kinda disappointed about Jun Hee storyline, he didnt have any romantic scenes shown as other couples, i wanted for him to have somebody, move on and have his own happy ending, that faceless car pick up was cheap, he deserved more :( Its still much more than we get with most other k-dramas in regards to representation, i hope we'll see some main non- straight couples, though considering this drama is from 2012 and we still havent got any, i might as well get old and stiil never see it.

A classic!

So unique with the back and forth time skip! Honestly such a hearty and warm drama that really drew a lot out on the relationships of the characters especially within the friend group. The whole development of the plot and the twists also made it very enjoyable and of course the fact that they replicated late 90's korea transcending into the new millenium was a really refreshing new thing to a drama.

OMG this show was absolutely fantastic. I especially loved Yoon Jae and Shi Won's relationship. Honestly that kitchen kiss was THE. BEST. I don't think I've ever fangirled over a show this much.
Let me reiterate: YOU MUST WATCH THIS SHOW. I am now officially a Seo In Guk and Jung Eun Ji fan...

But in all seriousness, Yoon Jae is so adorable, I can't even...
When Shi Won was being followed by the stalker and he tripped over himself trying to get to her...HOW DID IT TAKE HER SO LONG TO LIKE HIM? :O

It's done??!!

I'm like in withdrawal right now. I can't believe it's over. Reply 1997, it was love at first watch. I loved this drama from the beginning and it never disappointed me. I eagerly awaited for episodes to be subbed and I waited impatiently. This last episode made me feel sooo nostalgic. Nostalgic for the 1997 storyline, nostalgic about my life, nostalgic about everything. It made me realize how fast time really flies and how I should cherish every second. I'm glad that Shi Won ended up with Yoon Jae. I really could see a lot of myself in Shi Won. I act exactly like her towards guys I like. I love the girl Tae Woong married, I wish the writers had made their story longer, because I thought that they are a cute couple. And Joon Hee...oooooo... who's your mystery guy... I bet it's Dongwoo :P Man I'm already missing this drama. One of the best endings to a drama.

First of all I want to thank the writers and the producers for making such an OUTSTANDING plot and drama and thank you so much for picking the right IDOLS to play the right roles.
Seo In Guk and Jung Eun Ji are trully talented actors! Never seen such an honest and well played role from an Idol! You are my role models! And Hoya...Though he didn't have much time on screen he made the show much more interesting. He knew all the secrets and love problems of others and couldn't figure out his own..Amazing acting! Loved every second of it.

I have to be honest and say that as a true INSPIRIT I decided to give the drama a shot because of HOYA cos I heard that his part will be interesting. But as I watched the first two episodes I was really HOOKED! I waited for every weekend to watch another 2 episodes and the writers kept on playing with my heart and TEASE me with the HUSBAND of Sung Siwon! But the last episode finally answered all of my question that I had while watching all the 16eps.

First, the Kitchen scene.I loved every second of it, and thank you for letting me watch these two kissing!! Then the labor she had on 2013...minute 18 I got the chills when he said he was the husband! And when we figured that's their second child I was really amazed but I think that scene was unnecessary.

And the Cassies DB5K concert...and the red ocean and CHANTING to it I was so happy! You have no idea how glad I was to see that scene!

And the bar talking...and the music there is absolutely perfect!
Got to hear every song I love! kkk
Chaos- KISS KISS which is out for single days and was in that BAR and Secret's Poison kekeke

Funny thing.. I watch it all over and over and I see how beautiful the ending is.
And maybe Hoya will not be alone in the end.. I really hope he'll be ok.

I heard the writers are thinking of 2nd season but I won't change a thing. I want it to remain in my memories as the best drama of 2012.

Thanks again!

Perfect Ending!

Even up till the very last episode the writers tried to keep us guessing all I can say is I am very happy with the outcome :)
