glimpse of events in South Korean history!
14 May 2018 | by bobandlulureviewSee all my reviews

This story is set 3 years prior to the first series and has a brand new cast except Sung Dong Il and Lee Il Hwa who return as the protagonist's parents. Na Jung lives with her parents in Seoul who run a boarding house that takes in kids from the countryside as boarders. Sseu Re Ki (Trash), Chil Bong, Samcheonpo, Haitai, Gue Re Gue Re Bing Gue Re (Smiley Face) and Yoon Jin are the 6 boarders at the Shinchon Boarding house. All of these are from the countryside including Na Jung except Chil Bong who was born and raised in Seoul. The initial episodes deal with the kids figuring out Seoul, the subway, the girls, the food menu, the night clubs and all things that they need to do to be a part of the 'in' crowd. Chil Bong is a baseball player and is Bing Geu Re's cousin. After visiting Bing Gue Re at the Boarding house Chil Bong becomes a permanent visitor because he loves the family like atmosphere that is shared in the house as opposed to the coldness he has grown up with. Sseu Re Ki is the son of a family friend who has been living with Na Jung's family to pursue his academics in medicine and he is the oldest of the lot. Yoon Jin is a quiet and reserved girl who knows just one thing - Seo Taiji and Boys. Her love for the man goes to the point where she gets her boyfriend to ransack Seo Taiji's empty house and bring her back his commode! Haitai and Samcheonpo are roommates, one with absolutely no sense of space and the other with definite need for space. This blooming bro-mance was such a joy to watch. Bing Gue Re the shy boy who wants to be a singer but is in medical college and can't find his way about the academic life takes a break from school and works several part time jobs. He is a passive aggressive rebel who is trying find his own way. Last but not the least Na Jung who loves her Basketball oppa and can't see beyond him but suddenly finds herself falling in love and has to go through the turmoil of confession - rejection and letting love find its way to her. The series is again done so beautifully and talks of several events that effected South Korea - Pagers! Death of Kim Il Sung on 8th July, 1994 and the fear of an impending war, The collapse of Daewoo in 1999 and many such instances that gripped South Korea between 1994 to 2013. Like the pervious series even this series has KPop playing a very important role in the series. We are introduced to so many good songs because of this show and its background music. I had completely forgotten about Deli Spice after having watched the Classic and thanks to this show they are back on my playlist! This show teases us about who is married to Na Jung in the present day. All in all for a sequel this wasn't bad at all and more importantly I was glad it wasn't set in school again but was instead set in college giving us a glimpse in the life of a Yonsei student!
