Kim Tae Ri, Nam Joo Hyuk, And More Confirmed For New Romance Drama
Upcoming drama “Twenty-Five Twenty-One” (literal title) has confirmed its main cast!
The new drama is about two people who first meet when they are 22 and 18 and begin their love story four years later when they are 25 and 21. It tells a youthful story of romance, growth, and friendship.
Kim Tae Ri will play Na Hee Do, who becomes a professional sabre fencer of the national fencing team after experiencing the struggle of her high school team’s disbandment due to the IMF financial crisis. She is a passionate and bold character who doesn’t give up.
Nam Joo Hyuk is reporter Baek Yi Jin, the eldest son of a family that fell apart as a result of the IMF financial crisis. He delivers newspapers and works part-time at a book rental shop to help maintain a living.
As confirmed previously, WJSN’s Bona will take on the role of Na Hee Do’s rival Go Yoo Rim, the youngest fencing gold medalist. She is a charismatic fencer but has a lovable and cute personality when not competing.
Choi Hyun Wook’s character Moon Ji Woong is a unique character with his own distinct fashion sense. He is a social media star who aims to become Today’s Member (a highlighted user) on Cyworld, Korea’s top social media network of the early 2000s.
Lee Joo Myung is confirmed to play Ji Seung Wan, a class representative who is ranked No. 1 in her school but has a rebellious nature deep inside. She is part of the high school’s broadcasting club.
“Twenty-Five Twenty-One” will be written by Kwon Do Eun of “Search: WWW” and directed by Jung Ji Hyun of “Search: WWW,” “The King: Eternal Monarch,” and “You Are My Spring.”
The drama’s production company Hwa&Dam Pictures commented, “Kim Tae Ri, Nam Joo Hyuk, Bona, Choi Hyun Wook, and Lee Joo Myung will provide a vivid and shining portrayal of youth during a time when everything could be loved and everything could be hurtful through ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One.’ Please show lots of interest and anticipation for ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One,’ which will bring back touching memories deep inside your hearts through a story of youth, an eternal steady seller for all generations.”
