Back To The 1990s

So I was watching 2012 KBS Song Festival on TV. There's this segment where the current idol bands showcased hit songs by idol bands in the 1990s and I couldn't help but smile at how nostalgic the 1990s tunes are. Korea has Shinhwa, HOT, g.o.d., Sechs Kies, then you all know NKOTB, Backstreet Boys, NSync, the Brits with Take That, Westlife, Boyzone and Malaysia with Nico, 4U2C, Feminin... Memories... ^^

1990s. The time of my youth. The time when I first had my crush. When my heart was broken. The time when I had dreams. Big dreams. But also the time of extreme loneliness for me. A time when insecurities held supreme too. A time of outward fearlessness.

It wasn't a happy time (well, at least not until the late 1990s ^^) but I looked back at those times fondly now. I used to erase any memories of my childhood because it was a tad painful but I guess with "old" age came acceptance of life and life lessons. 

And whaddya know... there's a Korean drama got me reminiscent about the past. In a good way.
It's tvN's sitcom : Answer Me 1997 and it has Eun Ji Won in it! It's humorous, a sitcom of 30-something and their teenage life way back in the 90s. Cute. And for a late 30s me, I can't help but connect with the story.

You can read the recap at Dramabeans. I love reading recaps! Just as much as I love watching the dramas!

Now, if you excuse me. I have stuff to do.

And oh yeah, Happy Chinese New Year to those celebrating it!

  1. I was never into idol bands or celebrities when I was young, a real bookworm, too nerdy. My son is the opposite of me. Two generations living in different times. Both you and him have more fun than me. *sniff sniff*
