On why rewatchers are likely to settle for a rerun, it’s the satisfying experience of cognitive, emotive, and entertainment value that makes it a perfect rewatch material. Korean shows with a perfect blend of humor, fun, comedy, drama, thrill, and excitement tend to be rewatched by viewers. We all love these 드라마 다시보기 that relate to human problems with its characters that strongly stirs emotions.

Meanwhile, Taek dreams of something sweeter. Deok-sun faces a harsh reality check about getting into college. Dong-ryong ends up at the police station. Everyone piles into Bo-ra’s car to fetch Dong-ryong after he runs away from home on his birthday.

If viewers can’t find any other series that resemble life experiences around the theme mental health and social issues, then they would rather choose to hit on repeat on a particular series. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the influence of Korean series across the world is high. It served as key narrative references and existential therapy of nostalgia to its potential and avid viewers.

“Replay” premieres first on January 19 on Korean streaming platforms, then on January 26 on the YouTube channel LIKE THAT. However, it really doesn’t matter what kind of show a viewer chooses to rewatch as long as it breeds affection, provides a sense of comfort, and satisfies overall on a subjective point of view. Overall, it’s the capacity of a show to entertain the viewers that makes it worth the stream and rewatch. For example, the concept of a seaside story in “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” offers a refreshing vibe and a momentary escape amid the troubles around the world. The breathtaking cinematography, beautiful landscape shots, as well as its cool OST make you want to travel to the beach, sit back, chill, and reflect on life. “Vincenzo” is another outstanding Korean series with its interesting plot, characters, storyline, cinematography serving high quality entertainment value that does not bore.

The music is one big plus this drama has, even though the whole “”school band”” theme is somewhat under-developed. The male lead did a good job acting, and I was looking forward to see him after his role in ‘Single & Ready to Mingle’. Female lead’s acting is okay, especially given it’s her first acting I don’t have much complaints. The chemistry between them was bit lacking though.

The story hits all the expected spots and is well-paced. However it ends up being a victim to common webdrama tropes and cliche. The leads’ acting was decent enough to overlook how cheesy this whole thing is. At the same time it’s a shame such well-produced drama with actual budget is just another forgettable fare. 2F(신용재X김원주), `리플레이` OST `가려진 별` 발매 [2F ,’Replay’ OST’The Hidden Star’ released].
