Nam Joo Hyuk And Kim Tae Ri In Talks For New tvN Drama
On March 26, Ilgan Sports reported that the two actors had been cast in tvN’s upcoming drama “Twenty-Five Twenty-One” (working title).
“Twenty-Five Twenty-One” takes place from 1998 to 2021. In 1998, in a world that seems on the brink of disaster, two people aged 22 and 18 meet for the first time, but end up hurting each other at age 23 and 19. At 24 and 20, they learn to trust each other, and at age 25 and 21, they start to fall in love.
Kim Tae Ri’s agency, J,Wide Company, and Nam Joo Hyuk’s agency, Management SOOP, stated, “They are positively reviewing their casting offers for ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One.'”
Nam Joo Hyuk has been offered the role of Baek Yi Jin, a UBS sports reporter. After he becomes a reporter at age 23, he works as a makeup salesman and a bodyguard in order to stake out a story. He also lands a job as a sports reporter for the Asian Games. At the Asian Games, he meets a fencing athlete named Na Hee Do.
Kim Tae Ri has been offered the role of Na Hee Do, who is selected for the national team after competing on her high school fencing team. She is a fencing prodigy who becomes a gold medalist.
“Twenty-Five Twenty-One” is being written by Kwon Do Eun (“Search: WWW”) and directed by Jung Ji Hyun (“Mr. Sunshine,” “The King: Eternal Monarch”). It is scheduled to air on tvN sometime in the winter.
If they accept their offers, this will be Kim Tae Ri’s first drama in three years after “Mr. Sunshine” in 2018, and Nam Joo Hyuk’s follow-up project to 2020’s “Start-Up.”
