The third episode of tvN drama “Reply 1994” captured the hearts of female viewers. Having created a syndrome known as “Reply 94 Love,” the drama’s third episode that had aired on October 25 had a scene of Garbage (Jungwoo) patting Na Jung’s (Go Ara) face, causing many female viewers to swoon.
The scene portrayed a chance encounter of Na Jung and Garbage after Na Jung’s sulky mood over the inability to contact Garbage. After waiting all night for Garbage’s call without any response, the hurt Na Jung was momentarily forgiving after hearing about Garbage’s lost pager, but was jealous and hurt again after discovering Garbage leaving to spend White Day with his girlfriend.
Wearing thin clothes outside in the early morning, Na Jung’s sadness was countered by a worried Garbage who placed his jacket over Na Jung after his return. With a concerned voice and strong dialect, the country boy placed his jacket over his friend and said, “It’s cold, you’re going to get sick,” and proceeded to pinch and pat Na Jung’s cheeks, creating a romantic, movie-like scene. Jungwoo’s ability to shine his character Garbage has stirred a national love for both actor and character.
On the other hand, after hearing of Garbage’s break up with his girlfriend, an excited Na Jung narrated, “My age, 20. Starting my inexperienced and tacky love,” alluding to the future events to take place over the conflicting love triangle between Na Jung, Garbage, and Chil Bong.
The drama “Reply 1994,” which airs on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:40PM (KST), will convey the blossoming first love of Go Ara’s character Na Jung and the relationship changes between the characters.
