[헤럴드경제 = 서병기 선임기자]tvN’s Saturday and Sunday drama ‘Twenty-five Twenty One’ is a drama depicting the wandering and growth of young people who have been deprived of their dreams in the 1998 era. Everyone must have had an inexperienced youth, and it summons the pure emotions of that time. You can be immersed in it even without provocative elements such as triangles or villains.
At the time, everyone thought that this moment would last forever. It’s even better to watch when you say ‘Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo’ and Jaurim’s ‘Twenty-five, Twenty-one’ is played low and the lyrics ‘I had a heartbreakingly happy dream’ come to mind.
Even though the narrative of the relationship between the characters is expected, I want to follow the emotion. The relationship between heterosexual Na Hee-do (Kim Tae-ri) and Baek I-jin (Nam Joo-hyeok) and same-sex Na Hee-do and Ko Yu-rim (Kim Ji-yeon) can be watched with joy. The lines are getting cramped, but I can’t wait to see the tension in the ‘Youth Epic’, which is a mixture of excitement and heart trembling, is getting higher and higher.
In episode 10, which was aired on the 13th, sports reporter Baek Yi-jin made a plan for filming with Na Hee-do and Ko Yu-rim, who couldn’t go on a school trip, so she made a plan, including Moon Ji-woong (Choi Hyun-wook) and Ji Seung-wan (Lee Joo-myung). In’s East Coast school trip has been completed. It progresses without any narrative for the second half of the 20 minutes, but it is not boring at all and is moistly immersed in its sensibility. Is it because the present life is too dry?
Now that we entered the second half, Tae-ri Kim and Joo-hyuk Nam left a touching and fluttering aftertaste with the ‘Love Confession’ that makes even fear disappear, followed by the ‘Eternal Commitment Ending’ that supports hope.
In episode 10, Na Hee-do (Kim Tae-ri) talked about her relationship with her, saying, “It’s love. i love you too I was surprised by Baek Yi-jin’s (Nam Joo-hyuk) confession, “I don’t need a rainbow,” he thought for a moment, and then replied, “I don’t think I’m that good?”, making Baek Lee-jin laugh.
Baek Yi-jin said, “I love you as you are, no matter what you do or whatever you look like, and I have nothing to hope for if this confession makes you a little happier.” nothing? “Is love really like that?” He said to Na Hee-do, who was curious, “That’s true, but for you,” he confessed his sincerity. As if Baek Lee-jin’s love confession worked, Na Hee-do said, “I’m a little happy” and smiled brightly, making her Baek Lee-jin happy.
Next, Na Hee-do wrote down in her diary, remembering the time she heard the confessions of Ko Go-rim (Kim Ji-yeon) and Baek I-jin, who were worried about her wounded. “It feels like the world that was sparsely empty is filling up. The feeling of being friends with all the strangers and getting along with all the misfortunes to come. feeling stronger. In an instant, she became a person without fear,” wrote Na Hee-do, who wrote, “I think I can do anything with Baek Lee-jin.”
On the other hand, Baek Yi-jin was disregarded as a high school reporter and was saddened by the way she faced trials and conflicts and was having a hard time. Following the advice of his seniors, Baek Yi-jin went to the documentary producer for hurting Na Hee-do and apologized to him, but the documentary PD, who acted like a great person in front of people, insulted him by saying he was a high school graduate and a fallen family master.
Moreover, at a dinner party, Baek Yi-jin, who heard that he might become the only high school reporter due to the restriction on his academic background again, said to his senior, “I have to do really well. If I don’t, the academic background may be restricted again. Then people like me lose their chances.”
On the other hand, Baek Yi-jin made a plan for the filming as he felt sorry for Na Hee-do and Ko Yu-rim, who wanted to go on a school trip.
Then, they went to the sea to play in the water and went through turbulent events, such as Baek Yi-jin exploding due to inexperienced Taeyang Goz, and they became even stronger. Then, Taeyang Goz, who seemed like a child, told each painful story. Na Hee-do said that her father died when she was in elementary school, the late Yu-rim said that the house was difficult because her guarantee was wrong, Moon Ji-woong said her mother brought her hard when her parents divorced when she was young, and Ji Seung-wan said that life was so fun By telling the story, Baek was surprised by Jin.
Then, at sunset, colored in pink, the five of them sat together while looking at the beautiful beach and immersed in their appreciation. With Na Hee-do’s romantic suggestion, “We’re going to be the masters of this summer,” along with Ji Seung-wan’s shouts, “This summer is ours!” It raised expectations for friendship.
In addition, when Na Hee-do cried out, “Why do you think this moment will last forever?”, Baek Yi-jin quietly said, “I think it will last forever” and cheered for Na Hee-do’s wish. He foretold a future that would shine dazzlingly.
After the broadcast, the viewers said, “I’m so excited because of Na Hee-do and Baek Yi-jin, even though they don’t even hold hands like that. I’m just going crazy” “The good things that this drama doesn’t have. We can’t meet because we get out of the love triangle. Misunderstanding. disruptor. stress. So, a very happy drama!!” “The happiest time of the week has passed and the saddest time has come. Twenty-five twenty-one is over… I have to wait another week.” “The five of us at Taeyang High School looked at the sea, and tears welled up at those beautiful youths, and I was infinitely moved! This drama shows pretty things and makes me cry all the time.”
