I admit it. When I become obsessed about something, whether it be a song, an actor, or a drama, I go a little… overboard. I listen to that song on repeat for days at a time, look up online everything I can about an actor, or re-watch scenes or episodes of a drama again and again. Fortunately, for my own sanity, it doesn’t happen too often. But tvN’s latest drama, Answer Me 1997, succeeded in doing just that.
Seeing my obsessive-compulsive behavior of watching this “little drama that could” on repeat, Mama Blue expressed concern. “Aren’t you a little too old to be obsessing over a drama about high schoolers?” she asked. But after watching the episodes herself, the skeptical, Korean mom ended up asking, “So, when are the next episodes coming out?”
