Reply 1997 (Hangul: 응답하라 1997; RR: Eungdabhara 1997; also known as Answer Me 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 coming-of-age drama also examines 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.[2][3][4]

It originally aired live on cable channel tvN in 16 episodes (14 30-minute episodes aired back-to-back over a period of 7 weeks,[5] with the last 2 episodes aired separately and lasting 1 hour each due to the amount of material the staff didn't want to edit out[6]). But due to its popularity, the 15th and 16th episodes were also aired simultaneously on Mnet, OCN, O'live, Ongamenet and OnStyle. The last episode recorded the highest ratings at the time for a Korean cable drama,[7] and the series has garnered praise from audiences and critics for being well-researched, refreshing, genuine, and full of humor and heart.[8]

Reception[edit]

The TV serial mostly consisted of idol singers with scant acting experience, and apart from the meta casting of Sechs Kies member Eun Ji-won (who previously worked with director Shin Won-ho and the writing staff on variety show 1 Night & 2 Days),[32][33] it premiered to little hype.[34][35][36] But with strong word of mouth, it soon gained recognition as a high-quality production with a distinct sense of identity, becoming a buzz-worthy "syndrome" show (Korean slang meaning, a real hit with an ardent fanbase).[37][38][39][40][41]

With Korean cable shows generally considered successful if they hit 1%, Reply 1997 took cable ratings by storm,[42][43][7] and received an immense amount of attention and critical praise. The show has been credited for its laser-sharp attention to detail, re-creating the late '90s with an accuracy that has fans singing its praises.[44][45] Endless pop culture references are packed into every minute of the show, with little pop culture easter eggs hidden in scenes, callbacks to the trends of the day, and cameos that are in-jokes.[46]

It was also a digital success, receiving more than a million hits after it was made available for downloading and streaming on internet and mobile site Tving. This was attributed to the fact that Repy 1997 had aired on a cable network (pay television channel), such that several viewers were unable to watch it live.[47]

With majority of Korean dramas shot in the capital Seoul, another of the show's charms is its Busan setting, which is treated in a matter-of-fact way as a locale. The realism is aided by the fact that much of the principal cast is actually from the region, who speak with authentic Gyeongsang dialect. The dialogue also uses time-specific, location-specific slang.[48]

But '90s nostalgia and meticulous attention to detail is only part of the show's appeal.[49] Fans were also intrigued by the clues which the 2012 scenes dropped at regular intervals about who ends up together,[50][51] as well as the episodes' subtle twists. And its smart, witty way of addressing the growing pains of its adolescent cast makes it just as relevant in the present as it was back in the late-'90s setting of its primary plot. Audiences have lauded the show's intimacy and realism, with a sincerity that connects with people — even those outside that particular generation.

Seo In-guk, Eun Ji-won, Lee Si-eon and Shin So-yul hosted the September 15, 2012 episode of sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live Korea, which included skits that parody scenes in their series.[52] On September 20, 2012, a special was aired on tvN's enews featuring behind-the-scenes videos and a few bloopers from the set.[53]

A novelization was published in January 2013.[54]

Director Shin Won-ho re-edited all 16 episodes for a special director's cut DVD, released in February 2013. It also included 358 minutes of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, a blooper reel,[55] as well as commentary from the director and actors.[56]

Soundtrack[edit]

The '90s-set drama didn't have an original soundtrack of its own since a huge aspect of the show's mood is set with era-specific music, one of its defining characteristics.[57][58] So as a thank you to the fans of the show, lead actors Jung Eun-ji and Seo In-guk recorded a 2-part mini OST called Love Story.[59] Seo was the first season winner of the music audition program Superstar K, and Jung is the main vocalist of K-pop girl group A Pink. Their duet in Part 1 was a remake of 1990s idol group Cool's "All For You."[60][61] Their duet in Part 2 is a remake of "Just the Way We Love," from the soundtrack of 1999 film Love Wind Love Song.[62]

The two singles topped the charts of online music sites including Gaon Single Chart and Billboard's K-Pop Hot 100,[63][64][65][66][67] and Jung and Seo gave a live performance on Mnet's M! Countdown on September 6, 2012.[68] On September 19th, the song "All For You" won No.1 on New Music Program Mnet KM's Music Triangle.[69]

Due to popular demand, CJ E&M eventually released a "Director's Edition" soundtrack that feature Jung and Seo's 2 covers, as well as '90s songs played throughout the series. It also included a mini photobook and a behind-the-scenes DVD.[70] Before its official release, the album sold out its 12,500 units via pre-order, surpassing the average soundtrack sales figure of 5,000.[71][72]
