Reply 1988


How’s it going? Can you believe my last post on Korea was back in August? Woopsie.  I really do suck at this blogging thing. On the bright side, I stocked up a tonne of photos in my archives which are ready to be uploaded and spammed on this page.

Actually there was a reason I took a small hiatus on taking pics of Korea. In fact I was practising…trying out new styles of photography and colors so I could grow. Whether I have succeeded or failed well, time will tell. I can’t really say I’ve made an outstanding ‘breakthrough’ but I believe with more practice and some new equipment I can finally evolve.

Oh also has anyone seen the drama Reply 1988? It’s the talk of the town apparently…I have seen the first series a few years ago and the feeling is the same I get when I visited to the Suncheon drama film set. You get to rent out retro uniforms and wander around the vintage town of Korea. This was before my time…but even though I had a small glimpse of what it was like back then…I got a feeling retro-Korea must’ve been a WILD period of time. All my seniors said so anyway…

Anyhoo— not gonna write for too long this time round. Hope you all had a great new year!

Let’s see what 2016 shall bring for this blog shall we?

  1. Hi Ken! Visiting South Korea is still a dream for me. I have silently identified the places I wanted to visit and it includes the setting of my favorite drama series. Although I knew that one of disadvantages is that most of the places are scattered in different locations. Suncheon drama film set fortunately offers a one stop spot 🙂 for me. Hopefully, the dream will not remain as a dream. It will happen soon.

    I noticed a little difference in your photographs in this post. You seem to infuse more colours. 🙂 But as always, I love the stories and element of a little mystery in your photos.

      • Yes I’m considering it too. If i may share, I have a Korean friend whom I lost contact with after graduating from High School. After a decade, I decided to find her again. Good thing, she maintained the same address. 🙂 We met in my country because she had a short working stint here. She was telling me a lot of great things about Suncheon. And just like that, my list of places to visit in South Korea increased. Haha A week to explore might no longer be enough for me.

        Thanks for your reply and suggestion. I appreciate it. 🙂

        PS If you happen to be in my country, I would be an honour if it I can meet and treat you for at least one Filipino meal 🙂
