Oh my gawsh this show is driving me CRAZY. ABSOLUTELY CRAZY.
Nearly all the filming has apparently wrapped up for our currently favoritest ever drama Answer Me 1997 (aka Reply 1997). Actor Lee Shi-eon, who plays uber talkative Sung-jae, recently posted photos from the set on his Twitter account, expressing sadness over the arrival of the end of this sweet drama. You’re not the only one on the verge of tears, Shi-eon. Me wanna cry, too.
As kindly shared by YCHASE007, Episodes 15 and 16 will not be airing back-to-back as usual next Tuesday, September 11. Instead, each episode will air separately, so Episode 16 will be pushed back to September 18. The reasons being given by the director: They have a lot of ground to cover and would like to fully – and satisfactorily – delve into the characters’ post-college lives. New characters are going to be introduced, and the 1997 team felt the usual 45-minute episodes were too short to do all they wanted to do. Long story short, we’ll still get the full hour-and-a-half’s worth of our cuties each week, but we’re gonna have to wait a full extra week for the grand finale. Extensions usually make me wary, but this show has done such a wonderful job until now, I’d like to trust them to finish in the same manner.
Now what has me in a TIZZY, besides the one-week pushback, is the newly revealed title of Episode 16: “Why First Loves Never Come True.” WHAT. THE. HEEEEEECK?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!! They BETTER be pullin’ my leg like NO OTHER on this one. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. If they think to make up some kind of lame excuse for Yoon-jae + Shi-won not happening, I’m bookin’ me a flight to Seoul. Stat.
Episodes 13 & 14 will air this Tuesday evening (Seoul time), and their respective titles are: “Next time… No, Now” and “The Heart Orders One to Love”. Episode 15’s title is “While You are Loving…” Somebody get me into a time machine NOOOOOOWWWWW.
