The cast of Reply 1988
Lee Hye Ri as Sung Deok Seon
Sung Deok Seon is the most compassionate and kind of the five friends of the lot. However, she is not the most academically gifted child, since she often places at the last position in her entire high school, which is the horrid 999th position. She does not have a clear vision of her future and lacks a dream, making her feel moorless. Just like the other Reply series the recurring point of the story is actually who is the future husband of Sung Deok Seon.
Ryu Jun Yeol as Kim Jung Hwan
Jung Hwan is called Jung-pal by his friends. Hiding behind a stoic and sarcastic persona lies a soft heart. He often takes on different roles and responsibilities to fulfill the hopes and dreams of his older brother who has a chronic heart condition. He is smart and athletic. He has a crush on Deok Seon and even though she likes him for a moment, he is unable to share his feelings, making the right time slip by.
Go Kyung Pyo as Sung Sun Woo
Sung Sun Woo is the older son of a widowed mother. An ideal child, he is a doting brother, a smart student, and the class president. But he has a crush on Deok Seon’s elder sister, who is known to be very much strict and stoic.
Park Bo Gum as Choi Taek
Taek is an internationally renokwed Baduk player. But in order to be a smart Baduk player, he has lost out on many important relationship milestones. So, he relies on his childhood friends to ground him in reality. Being an internationally renowned Baduk player has brought him fame and money, but he lacks true companionship from the rest of his peers. As a person, Taek is compassionate and he will not create a fuss. But when he has a crush on Deok Seon, he has to weigh friendships against love and be a little more proactive in his relationships.
Lee Dong Hwi as Ryu Dong Ryong
Dong Ryong is a fun-loving friend who loves to pull pranks on his friends. Just like Deok Seon, he is not academically successful. But one of the things that make him hurt is that his family is not close. What this means is that he is the son of two working parents, and looking at his friends’ families, he wants someone to rely on as a close-knit family member. While he is not neglected by his parents, he wants their attention and so, he acts out to get their attention. Dong Ryong is surprisingly insightful and so, it serves him and his friends a lot of the time.
