Each expecting different things, each looking at different places, each dreaming different dreams… everything that happens between one man and one woman, is just continuous love and war. You sulk, you pacify, you fight, you make up, you hurt, you embrace. A relationship like a manic-depressive patient who can’t make up his mind. But the hardest thing about the relationship between a man and a woman is the timing—if the love doesn’t begin at the same time, it’s unlikely to ever begin at all.

Which couple’s story does Shin PD value the most in ‘Reply 1997.’ Shin PD surprisingly replied by saying Kang Junhee’s one-sided love. Shin PD said “To be honest I treasure Kang Junhee and Yoon Yoonjae’s love line the most. Even while editing it, my heart hurt so much. Especially the scene when Kang Junhee confessed to Yoon Yoonjae, I looked at it for a long time and said ‘What should I do with this?’ It’s to the point where even while filming, the staff know that Junhee’s story is my favorite.”

I watch the drama, I like the drama. Having said that, I am confused by this article. Is this article saying sasaengs are okay and should be an accepted part of fan culture? Because, if that is the premise this author is trying to promote, I say NO THANK YOU.
The behaviours of the characters in this drama are excessive and the worst was her breaking into her bias’ house. However, even that was shown in the drama as over the top, crazy and not to be encouraged. In any case, the characters behaviours have note reached the, yes, demonic behavior of what today’s sasaengs have developed into.
I am quite surprised that for such a nuanced and well characterized drama, what this writer took out of the drama and chose to highlight was the sasaeng issue. With so many discussion points and nostalgia that this drama has raised among viewers, even those who were not born at the time, I would have preferred a positive discourse rather than another diatribe about sasaengs.
