Time to head back to 1979

I feel like it has been ages since dramaland has given us a girl-focused coming-of-age story. Is this drama on your watchlist?

Girls’ Generation 1979
8 episodes, KBS 2
Monday/Tuesday
Available on KoCoWa.com/Viki.com

Daegu, 1979. High school student Lee Jung-hee has a one-sided crush on fellow student Son Jin, who works part-time at a pharmacy. Her life gets more complicated when a transfer student arrives at school. Park Hye-joo is from Seoul, and she instantly catches the attention of a lot of people, including Son Jin. As the school year goes by, Jung-hee and Hye-joo will need to figure out their budding friendship and what they both want out of life.

This coming-of-age drama is based on a 2009 novel Lingerie Girls’ Generation (란제리 소녀시대) by Kim Yong-hee.
