Answer Me 1988 Releases Second Throwback Poster and Sets November 6th Premiere Date

I’m wondering how much I’m willing to put up with upcoming tvN drama Answer Me 1988 solely for male lead Park Bo Gum? It’s certainly going to be a lot of leeway, but I worry that he’s not even going to be the male lead, and that’s going to be Go Kyung Pyo. And while I do like Go Kyung Pyo, it’s a whole different level of affection I feel for Park Bo Gum, lemme put it that way. Drama fans are analyzing the poster character placements and pointing out that Go Kyung Pyo is front and center and always next to female lead Hyeri.

That’s when I realized that maybe I’m good with Park Bo Gum being shunted to the side, since that’s a spot farther away from Hyeri, which makes it a winning spot in my eyes. I’m also starting to get visual eyesore from all that fugly late 80’s hair and clothing style choices, I may have been a kid during that time but goodness it really did not look as bad as the AM team is making it. Or was it that bad and I just blocked it all out? I guess we’ll find out this November 6th when AM1988 premieres. Continue reading
