Reply 1988

Sitting on the neighborhood K-Drama set between 1988 – 1995 made viewers reminisce the good old days of endearing family love and friendship full of laughter.

Reply 1988 pays homage to the irreplaceable bliss of being young – of our young dreams and our young love. It gives you a trip to memory lane when technology hasn’t taken over the world yet— when friends meet up at a house to watch movies, to eat and to chat and when romance comes true by heartfelt love declarations, stolen kisses and warm hugs.

The Bride of Habaek

In preparation for his crowning as the King of Realms of God, Habaek (Nam Joo Hyuk), a water god crosses the world of humans to find three heavenly stones kept by deities living in the mortal world.

Unfortunately, he loses his powers when he lands on earth with his attendant, so they leave with no choice but to seek the descendant from a family, who vowed to serve the lineage of gods. The supposed human servant turns out to be a psychiatrist, Yoon So Ah (Shin Se Kyung), who is currently burdened with money constraints.
