Set in 1998, “Twenty Five, Twenty One” is about youth who find new direction and growth after having their dreams taken away. Kim Tae Ri and Nam Joo Hyuk star as Na Hee Do and Baek Yi Jin, who first meet when they are 18 and 22 years old and fall in love years later when they turn 21 and 25.
Choi Hyun Wook plays Moon Ji Woong, an influencer in the late 1990s whose goal is to become “Today’s Member” on the social networking service Cyworld. As a fashion trendsetter with unique tastes, Moon Ji Woong is a whimsical character who asserts his own artistic style and has extraordinary talent in numerous fields.
Having won Best New Actor at the 2021 SBS Drama Awards for his performance in “Taxi Driver” and “Racket Boys,” Choi Hyun Wook will once again impress viewers with his new transformation into Moon Ji Woong. Recently, the drama released its first stills of the fashionable student. One still depicts Moon Ji Woong having a conversation with someone while wearing a white headphone set around his neck and holding a skateboard in his arm.
Another still portrays him fiddling with the camcorder while also capturing the electronic watch and fashionable bracelets he is wearing. Highlighting the fashion of the late 1990s, Choi Hyun Wook draws anticipation for his intriguing character in the upcoming drama.
Regarding his reason for starring in the show, Choi Hyun Wook shared, “I thought it would be a good experience to act in a time period that I have not experienced. I felt touched by the youthful story of the five friends.” The actor continued to share, “Ji Woong is a bright and optimistic friend, and he is talented in many areas. The aspect I like about Ji Woong is his confidence while occasionally making cheeky remarks. Since Ji Woong is particularly interested in fashion, I think it will be nice if viewers anticipate his styling, which gives off a 1998 vibe”
A representative of the production company shared, “Choi Hyun Wook is the perfect fit for the character of Moon Ji Woong to the extent that they are 200 percent in sync. From his hip sense of fashion to his gaze, expression, and way of speech, Choi Hyun Wook is Moon Ji Woong himself. Please show lots of interest and support for Choi Hyun Wook, who is developing the role of Moon Ji Woong with his passionate acting skills and ability to understand a character, which is unlike that of a rookie.”
