Duk-Sun’s family is poor and they live in a semi-basement house.Duk-Sun's father Dong-Il (Sung Dong-Il) lost money due to guaranteeing someone else's debt.
I love how they make the viewers realize that family and friendship is important.i have watched reply 1988 for five times already but still....i cry ....i laugh and and was always entertainwd everytime i watch it... hoping for another reply kdrama This is the best drama..brilliant..! Story, cast, directing, and everything is just perfect. more than the love story it's a story of friendship amongst the parents and eventually their children... Reply 1988 is the better drama despite the low ratings of some viewers. Because of the casting and their very good acting; beautiful story in general and individual family stories; the funny scenes and dialogues,the sad moments and the romantic scenes, especially the rivalry of Jung Hwan and Taek for the same woman, Duk Sun.I'm truly touched by their friendship.heartwarming relations amongst the families.quiet yet dedicated father -son relationship of and taek.was just lovely..first episode where the ommas screamed to have dinner brings nostalgia.. I got a little bit skeptical first because kdrama sequel never as good as the first series. I learned a lot about Korean families, customs and traditions, parent-child relationships, friendships, and lifestyle. Jung himself realized that fate and timing were not in his favor.And I also hoped they made a scene for Duk Seon and Taek. after reading the rave reviews about this drama, i just want to watch it all over again, and again and again. I'm always taek's team and really happy with the ending.It makes my heart leap whenever they show the scene between the love triangle. this is not even an exaggeration, just plain excitement. I personally agree that taek's more suitable to duk seon. However, the one that less in this drama was the scenes between taek and duk seon.
