THIS JUST IN:
Popular producer of the K-drama Reply series Shin Won Ho reportedly has the 3rd installment of the series, Reply 1988 now in the works. According to Ilgan Sports, a staffer explained that Shin Won Ho was “worried about which year he was going to base for the drama. There were years like 2002 and 1988 and many more to be used. However, it has been decided that 1988 will be the year for the new series. As for the season premiere,” he continued, “we are currently expecting July 2015.”
Previously, Shin Won Ho had led us to believe that the 3rd series might not happen, stating, “many discussions were made, but we have a situation that need us to stop everything. We need to continue to take our time to look carefully at the situation. "Reply 1988"is not a certain thing yet. I am reconsidering everything so it may take a long time.”
Hopefully we get full confirmation soon! Can.not.wait.
