So I literally finished watching this drama. I kept putting it off and putting it off. I finally decided on Sunday at 2 am in the morning because I couldn't sleep, let me watch Answer Me 1997 I heard it is good. Let me tell you it far succeeded my expectations.

Answer Me 1997 aka Reply 1997

Plot Reply 1997 (Hangul: 응답하라 1997; RR: Eungdapara 1997) is a 2012 South Korean television series that centers on the lives of six friends in Busan, as the timeline moves back and forth between their past as 18-year-old high schoolers in 1997 and their present as 33-year-olds at their high school reunion dinner in 2012, where one couple will announce that they're getting married. The first installment of the Reply series, it also portrayed the extreme fan culture that emerged in the 1990s when first generation idol groups such as H.O.T. and Sechs Kies took center stage and K-pop was just blossoming My take on the drama It was so well put together and all the characters developed so amazingly. The chemistry between each of the characters made the show progress so seemingly well. I thought at first with the jumping back and forth from the 90s to 2012 would give me a headache but was surprisingly pleased that the transitions where executed flawlessly and did not distract from the show. I loved all the hints they dropped for you to figure out the main couple and how each love story was portrayed. It did a great job in showing how much love, drama, gossip, clicks and cliches that are present in high school life in the 90s but yet still so prelevant in school life to this day. I loved also how they had a gay character that confessed his feelings but was still accepted by his friends. It definitely deserves it's praises. I give this show a 5 out 5 and one to be added to my list of shows I will watch again. Please take the time and check it out if you haven't already Source

High School dramas on my to be watched list:

Answer Me 1988 Answer Me 1994 Thumping Spike High School Love On ( I started and have stopped. I'm on episode 3...should I finish this one?) Detectives of Seonam Girls High

Have you seen any of these are they good?

High School Dramas I recommend:

I want to recommend some besides the ones that usually are recommended. I enjoyed each of the ones I will list as much as I enjoyed Boys Over Flowers, and Playful kiss. Sassy Go Go aka Cheer Up Moorim School Monstar High School King of Savvy School 2013 School 2015: Who are you Each of these deal with relatable issues and teach some valuable life lessons. They also bring a lot of emotions, be ready to laugh, cry, scream, and be frustrated. Be ready for second lead syndrome.

Have you seen any of these and if so what did you think?

Do you have any recommendations for me?

Here are a few quotes and life lessons from Answer Me 1997 aka Reply 1997

Reply 1997 is so good and so cute! I also loved that the best friend was gay. It was a nice twist to the plot line. I also haven't finished High School: Love On. Although I did watch more than 3 episodes, I stopped at some point. I'm still not sure if I want to continue or not. I LOVE SASSY GO GO!!! I didn't like High School King of Savvy but that's just me. I do love Seo In-Guk a lot but I forced myself to finish it because of him. I loved his character but I couldn't stand the female lead plus it was SO LONG! It was tiring to watch. I have "school" dramas that are more college school dramas like Heartstrings that I would recommend but you may have seen it already. But I love it.

Oh it's the new one that everyone's talking about, I'll definitely add it to my plan to watch list. Thanks!
I still haven't seen it yet. but its on my must watch list.
definitely @MelissaGarza like I'm so happy I've finally watched it.
you should definitely continue watch High School: Love On
good to know
I have seen Moorim School, High School King of Savy, and School 2013. I have to say I really enjoyed all of them. Of course I have also seen Boys Over Flowers and Playful Kiss. I would like to recommend Dream High and Dream High 2. They were both great.
I've watched both though it took me 3 tries to get into Dream high 2
