Producer Reveals ′Reply 1997′ Was Actually Going to Be ′Reply 1994′
Reply 1997 fever is showing no signs of dying down, as fans just can’t get enough of all that old school k-pop goodness. But the production staff revealed that they were going to take the drama even further back.
Producer Shin Won Ho stated, “When writer Lee Wu Jeong and I were first planning the drama, we were focusing on the year 1994 because that was when we were students.”
So why the sudden change?
With Eun Ji Won playing an important role in the drama, the production staff thought it would be fun to change the year to when the singer was performing as a Sechs Kies member.
The staff also added that 1997 was also a time when pop music was at its peak, while the Korean economy was tanking.
In regards to another season of Reply 1997, Shin replied, “It’s possible if there’s good material and a storyline, but I don’t have any intention of creating a remake of it.”
The drama has two more episodes to go before it wrapping up on September 18.
