The paradigm has shifted, folks. Finally, a Korean drama that viscerally connects with the viewers! Answer Me 1997 delves into human relationships of every facet in a funny, touching, and refreshing way. It's no ordinary coming-of-age story. It is the most talked about show of 2012 in Korea and no wonder...the acting, the writing, the directing...the entire production value is at the highest level. The director chose to shoot each episode like a movie, which allows us to intimately connect with the characters and the story line. The writing is so original, so witty, so clever and so realistic that I wish everybody could understand the raw Korean format. Subtitles just won't be the same - so much will be lost in translation. I hope the huge success of Answer Me 1997 will open doors for a newer generation of dramas that will honor realistic characters and dialogues and won't be afraid to test the limits. This is definitely one of the best Korean dramas that I've ever seen, if not THE BEST.
