A drama about dreams, family and reality- with a hint of time travel. This drama is KBS’ The Best Hit, or also known as Hit the Top. Lee Ji Hoon and Choi Woo Seung are two childhood friends who also happen to be preparatory students for the civil service exam, although Ji Hoon has a secret dream to be a singer and songwriter. One day they meet Yoo Hyun Jae, a 90s popular but problematic member of a popular idol group, who accidentally travel through time to the year 2017 from the year 1993. Thus, begin the story of passion, love, and friendship among 20s youth in the entertainment industry.
Did I watch without skipping/spoiling myself?: ★
“We study, not because we want to become somebody. We study, because we don’t want to be nobody.” -Choi Woo Seung
“Whatever it is, I’m done with giving up. I’m not giving up anymore.” -Lee Ji Hoon
“Our best days are the days we haven’t lived yet. That’s why the present and everything we do now are precious to us. We still have our best hit coming.” -Lee Ji Hoon
“I guess he didn’t want to change things because of him.” -Yoo Hyun Jae
Will I recommend? 110% YES. It seriously has the best OSTs! It is a light drama but at the same time, it’s complicated. There is always a reason why things happen the way it did. I was seriously waiting for the “OST” a blog said about a collaboration of Cha Eun Woo, Kim Min Jae and Lee Se Young bUT THERE IS NONE. There isn’t a boring part, well at least for me. I seriously enjoyed each moment and shipped Woo Seung to three guys.
I’m going to miss this drama so much! It seriously talks about dreams and I love that and it also talks about reality. I guess what draw me to this drama, aside from Kim Min Jae, is the fact that it’s so real. Like, these things happen in real life and they depicted it in a nice way, um not overreacting way.
I’m going to miss the friendship between Da Bong(Hyun Jae), Woo Seung, Ji Hoon and Drill. They are not the most ideal squad but they are the best out there. Ji Hoon and Drill’s friendship is goals. Oh, Mal Sook And Hyun Jae’s scenes were one of the most entertaining! I just love love LOVE when they had a memorial for Hyun Jae, and surprise!
This is one of the best ongoing dramas I have watched and of 2017. Every episode was worth the wait! I love the mix of family, dream, reality and a little bit of time travel into this. It’s also heartwarming. They did well in balancing it. And don’t forget the romance. Although I have mixed feelings towards the ending, but at the same time I totally understand it. UGH, can there be a season 2 please? I need to see more of JB’s debut aND WHY DIDN’T YOU LET ME SEE THEM PERFORM HUHU. And I was waiting for Ji Hoon and Hye Ri to get together. Oh, and also MJ’s jokes (+his scenes with Hyun Jae) are funny!
“No, you can’t. You asked if you can like him. No, you can’t. Eun Hee-shi, you can’t like Goo Jung Hee-shi. Goo Jung Hee-shi is my ex-husband, is and always will be children’s dad, and whereas we have filed the divorce papers, he’s still my friend and will continue to be so. He needs to be healthy and well. That’s why it’s a no.”
