And… here comes another confrontation scene. What will they talk about this time?
I first saw Go Ara in 2003 when she played the young Lee Ok-rim character in her debut drama, Sharp. I remember being impressed by the young actress’s feistiness, not to mention her pretty looks. But …
After causing such a huge sensation with the Answer Me series two years in a row, I personally couldn’t wait to take a peek inside the mind of the man behind the success, Director Shin …
This is the second part of “A Closer Look at the World of Answer Me 1994“ series. You can find the first part here.
As my mom was watching Answer Me 1994, she made an interesting comment. “I don’t feel like I’m watching a drama, but watching in on the lives of real people living somewhere in Sinchon.” True to her words, whereas many dramas these days attempt to build a fictional world for its characters, Answer Me 1994 has transplanted its characters in the real world of mid-90s Korea. And due to the producers’ painstaking attention to detail, they have successfully recreated this world with incredible accuracy. So that we may truly appreciate their hard work and not let it go to waste, please join me in this time travel journey as we take a closer look at the world of Answer Me 1994!
I’m really thrilled to see a major development in (what I perceive to be) the main love line. I’m a little ashamed to say how many times I re-watched that magical moment in Episode 13.

I’m begging Writer Lee and Director Shin that they spare my puppy, Chilbong, from any further heartbreak than necessary. Or as Trash often says, “I’ll kill you!”
CONFIRMED. On the 29th, CJ E&M announced that Answer Me 1994 will be extended by one episode because the intended story cannot be accommodated by just 20 episodes.

I seriously hope that the integrity of this story won’t be compromised by that one extra episode, but for now, let’s just concern ourselves with the upcoming episode!
Included in Bank’s debut album from 1995, the rock ballad song “You, I Cannot Have” (“가질 수 없는 너”) enjoyed great popularity upon its release, and since then has been covered by various artists. The lyrics expressing the pain of unrequited love was one that many people identified with over the years. And now once again, this song was chosen to be included in the official soundtrack of Answer Me 1994.
