The Reply 1988 cast members made our hearts *so happy* when they posted photos of a reunion on June 22! Park Bo Gum, Hyeri, Go Kyung Pyo, Lee Dong Hwi, and Ryu Hye Young were present, but Ryu Jun Yeol was notably ~missing~.
Soon after their Insta updates, however, a *low quality* photo of the cast eating together surfaced, and there were six people instead of five! Fans immediately claimed that the sixth person was Jun Yeol, and TBH, we want to believe it's true.
Some fans joked that he was just *late* because of traffic, referring to his character's heartbreaking Reply 1988 scene. Another Twitter fan account joked that they went to the photo booth without telling Jun Yeol, and that's why we don't see him in the pics. So kulit!
Hyeri and Jun Yeol, who played Deok Sun and Jung Hwan in the show, confirmed that they were dating in 2017 and have been super low-key about their relationship ever since.
Reply 1988 first aired in South Korea in 2015, and it told the story of five childhood friends and their families who live in the same neighborhood. The show was created by producer Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung, who also worked on the other Reply series, Prison Playbook, and Hospital Playlist.
We miss you, Ssangmun-dong squad!
