I’m always the one watching a drama and talking about it, so I thought it fun to turn the tables on y’all with a drama that is currently the hot topic du jour and quite the hotbed of heated debate. I still haven’t watched Answer Me 1994, not even a scene or snippet, but its impossible not to overhear some of the discussions about the unfolding storyline. The final episode aired tonight and much as I wasn’t seeking to learn who was the husband I received an email from a drama friend that spilled the beans. I have no feeling whatsoever on the husband reveal since I have no clue why this drama needed to actually keep in the bag who the husband of the leading lady was. Since the drama is reportedly quite good, clearly it’s not the incompetence of Marry Him If You Dare unable to figure out which way was up or down hence never gave a satisfactory conclusion until the end (and not even then). I didn’t check out AM1994 when it first aired since I really am blah about Go Ara, but I loved Answer Me 1997 so I was planning to check out AM1994 if the reviews were good. By the time the drama picked up steam I was so busy I decided to bank it until it finished for a nice marathon session. Then the shipping wars began and boy did it look like a slow motion train wreck even from the sidelines were I was standing. Now that the drama is finished, what is the recommendation on the totality of AM1994? Should I even bother to watch it? Will those who recommend it turn out to only be viewers whose ship sailed? Will the sunken ship fandom give a persuasive argument for why this drama is so fundamentally flawed as to be not worth my time? I actually thought the whole husband reveal was the weakest part of AM1997 so to have it repeated in AM1994 actually is a turn off and knowing who the husband is now a major relief for me if ever I did elect to watch it. Shouldn’t it be obvious who the leading lady loves and wants as her husband? It certainly was in AM1997 hence the narrative should be about the journey and less about structuring for a last minute reveal. Read on for the spoilers on who the hubby is and then share your recommendations on whether AM1994 is good, bad, worth a watch, or destined for the trashbin.
So the hubby is Na Jung’s oppa, aka Trash, aka Kim Jae Joon. Anyone surprised? When I saw Jung Woo cast as the lead with Yoo Yeon Seok as the second male lead it looked pretty obvious to me. So why all the shipping wars, peeps? Was Yoo Yeon Seok really that awesome that a woman needed to be deaf, blind, and probably dead not to pick him over Oppa? Do tell because I’m really curious. From a dispassionate casual observer, I’d say Na Jung and Oppa look cute together from these stills alone other than her wedding veil being the height of hideously poofy.
