Shi Won used to scratch Yoon Jaes chin like a puppy, which Trash did to Binggeurae as well. Mom and Dads cat-and-dog fighting followed by kiss-and-makeup behavior was reflected in Shi Won and Yoon Jae’s and Trash and Na Jung’s relationships. Cant be without a fangirl in a drama set at the inception of the idol groupsShi Won spends a night camping outside Tony Ahn’s house, Yoon Jin camped outside Seo Taiji’s house more than once. Both Sung families were unfortunate enough to lose a family member, Song Joo in 1997 and Na Jung’s brother in 1994, but rather than the family breaking down, there was room for new members to move in. Sung Jae and Sam Cheon Pothe casting of obviously older-looking actors to play younger parts. The series kept the guessing game of ‘who is the husband’ till the very end, and episodes became longer and longer as writers couldn’t cut interesting issues out of episodes. The original 1997 drama was only 16 half-hour episodes, aired back-to-back on Thursdays, except for the final two episodes which were 1-hour episodes aired separately. 1994 couldn’t help but add 5 more episodes to the drama to flesh out the story more, airing onea half hour episodes every Friday and Saturday.
In 1997, there was a time jump of 6 years before Shi Won reunited with Yoon Jae and the two finally got together. There wasn’t such a huge jump in 1994, as the drama worked through the years episode by episode, and the friendships remained close throughout the whole time. Na Jung never wavered; for her, it was Trash right from the beginning.
Our 1994ers are Seoul college students, while the 1997ers were high school students living in Busan. How was it plausible to squeeze in a cameo or two? The timelines intersected when Trash went over to Busan for a one-year residency and revealed his maturity level by getting into a fight with Shi Won on a bus over H.O.T music. Trash also gave us his opinion on each of the 97ers who were riding the bus with Shi Won. Later on, Shi Won played a crucial role in picking Na Jung’s ring, flatly rejecting Trash’s choice of the gaudiest ring in the shop. But where was Eun Ji Won? He turned up at the end of the episode, a shy student being tutored by Na Jung.
