Na Hee Do
Kim Tae Ri plays as Na Hee Do, a fencing athlete whose high school team was disbanded due to the IMF crisis. Although her dreams appeared to have collapsed in front of her, she forges ahead into her future without giving up.

On her character, Kim Tae Ri explained, “She’s a youth who started off as someone dreaming of becoming a fencer, but she’s currently going through a slump. Nevertheless, she loves fencing so much that she’s stubbornly walking towards her dream. Normally, her personality is extremely bright, and she’s the type to run while only looking forward, but she’s also a character who is more sincere than anyone else about her dreams.”

Kim Tae Ri elaborated, “The aspect I like the most is that Hee Do is a child who always walks forward. She’s not someone who despairs after failure, her tragedies don’t end in tragedy, and she’s a strong kid who has no fear of moving forward.”

Baek Yi Jin
Nam Joo Hyuk will play the role as Baek Yi Jin, the eldest son of a family that is torn apart due to the IMF crisis. Despite his difficult background, he works hard to become a reporter. Baek Yi Jin is doing all kinds of part-time jobs from delivering newspapers to working at a book rental store.

Nam Joo Hyuk described “Twenty Five, Twenty One,” saying, “‘Twenty Five, Twenty One’ is a drama in which young people who have lost their dreams suffer and grow together. They comfort and strengthen each other. I decided to be part because it seemed like a drama that everyone could enjoy together as they remembered those days and empathize with it, saying, ‘That’s what it was like those days.'”

Regarding Baek Yi Jin, the actor commented, “Sometimes, he makes mistakes, but if there’s something he has to do, he does it no matter what, and I really like that side the most.”

Go Yu Rim
Bona will portray Na Hee Do’s rival, 18-year-old national fencing athlete Go Yu Rim. While Go Yu Rim flaunts the charisma of a gold medal athlete, once she takes off her fencing uniform, she’s cute and lovable, being gentle in appearance but sturdy in spirit.

Regarding why she chose this drama, Bona explained, “I read the script after first hearing that Kim Tae Ri and Nam Joo Hyuk were appearing. The two matched the characters of Hee Do and Yi Jin so perfectly that I could even imagine it and I had lots of fun reading the script. Since the character of Yu Rim was so overflowing with charm, I really wanted to join ‘Twenty Five, Twenty One.'”

Bona continued, “Yu Rim is someone who only knows her family and fencing. Since the weight of her burdened heart is so heavy, she works that much harder to do her best and I really liked that about Yu Rim. I hope you watch while focusing on the gradual transformation Yu Rim experiences while meeting new friends at Taeyang High School after once carrying all her baggage by herself and pretending she was okay.”

Moon Ji Woong
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.

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”

3 Reasons To Look Forward To The Premiere Of “Twenty Five, Twenty One”

xyla73 Publish time 12-2-2022 09:08 PM

malam ni ada 2 drama premier kat Netflix...
drama ni dgn Forecasting Love & Weather...

iols pilih tgk drama ni dulu atas sebab2 berikut :
1) susah nak tgk Kim Tae Ri berlakon drama, Park Min Young & Song Kang tu dah biasa tgk...
2) iols suka drama yg ada retro look mcm Reply series tu...setting drama ni tahun 1998 masa zaman kemelesetan ekonomi...
3) ada sesuatu kelainan dlm drama ni yg memaparkan sukan fencing...nak tgk camna writer masukkan elemen ni dlm drama...

bukan xnak tgk Forecasting Love & Weather tu tapi kena tunggu dulu...maybe marathon je nanti...

dah tgk epi 1...best...it's a youth drama about how desperate you are to achieve your dream...
Nam Joo Hyuk mcm biasa...sama mcm dlm drama2 lain...
tapi yg menyerlah kat sini Kim Tae Ri...
mcm x caya umur dia dah masuk 30an tapi masih boleh bawak watak budak sekolah...x nampak janggal pun...
baru puas hati tgk heroin pandai berlakon jauh bertiang2 banding dgn heroin utk slot yg sama sebelum ni...

citer ni start dgn present time...masa ni heroin umur dlm 40an & ada anak yg nak jadi ballerina...
tapi surname anak dia x sama dgn surname hero, so dia kahwin dgn org lain ke?
then balik ke tahun 1998 masa heroin (Na Hee Do) umur 18 tahun, i think most of the timeline will feature tahun 1998 ni....
lawak tgk dia buat mcm2 plan utk tukar sekolah sebab fencing club kat sekolah dia tu dah berkubur tapi x menjadi...
mengimbau nostalgia betul tgk gambaran zaman tu...chatting (dulu belum ada whatsapp, teringat iols rancak guna mIRC zaman tu), penggunaan pager (dulu hp belum ada, nak hantar mesej guna pager) & sewa komik (iols sewa novel, selalunya gi kedai sewa buku kat CM)...

koleksi Na Hee Do...siapa kat sini yg kenal floppy disk & cassette player?haha memang sah uols remaja purba :lol:


xyla73 Publish time 13-2-2022 02:57 PM

siapa yg nak tgk citer romcom yg refreshing trylah tgk citer ni...
baru epi 1 dah byk favorite moment dlm tu...antaranya :
1) Na Hee Do marah kat Baek Yi Jin sebab pecahkan private part patung kencing berdiri tu (patung tu water fountain sebenarnya)....
2) Na Hee Do lawan geng yg gaduh dgn school mate dia guna teknik fencing tapi pakai payung...
3) Baek Yi Jin explain kat Na Hee Do kenapa ada rule utk protect the minors...it make sense though...
4) Na Hee Do lukis balik & tampal comic book yg mak dia koyakkan sebelum dia pulangkan kat kedai sewa buku tu tapi kena tangkap dgn Baek Yi Jin...pastu dia explain pasal comic book tu tapi Baek Yi Jin x dpt tangkap apa yg dia cakap sebab dia cakap sambil nangis...

yg x tgk Mr. Sunshine tu maybe x kenal siapa Kim Tae Ri...
tapi kalau nak tgk camna dia berlakon tapi x minat citer ala2 historical mcm Mr. Sunshine tu blhlah tgk citer ni...
tapi sapa yg prefer heroin lawa2 tu x boleh nak cakap apalah...pilihan masing2...

Kim Tae Ri ni byk berlakon filem ka...?
i mcm x tertarik nak tgk drama nih sbb tgk hero heroine mcm x dak chemistry jaa...
ehhehee...maybe sbb Nam Joo Hyuk sejenis pretty boy kan so I suka tgk dia dengan pretty gurls.. :D

xyla73 Publish time 13-2-2022 03:05 PM

lagi satu nak cakap pasal opening scene yg tunjuk situasi sebenar in present time...dgn tunjuk SOP covid-19 nya...
it's a parallel dgn apa yg berlaku back in 1998....kita menghadapi kemelut ekonomi yg sama back then...

ada 1998 scene tunjuk penggiat2seni ni buat protes kat gomen diorg...
so maybe tu antara sebab kenapa movie, drama & program2 tv kt sana shoot mcm biasa time covid ni...
utk elakkan apa yg jadi tahun 1998 tu berulang balik...
bagi diorg kemelut ekonomi masa tu sampai kena pinjam duit dari IMF tu mcm mimpi ngeri...

Ai dah tengok ep1 semalam. Citer ni best jugaklah. Taeri sesuai bawa watak ni sebab body dia petite. Seuaolah bawak watak budak sekolah. Bab berlakon tu ai memang takkan nafikan. Kat Mr Sunshine best je berlakon walaupun hero jauh lebih kertu. Cuma kadang2 ai susah nak lupa watak dia dalam Handmaiden tu

Klu Yi Jin ni pulak. Hmmm biasa je lah bagi ai. Macam Nam Dosan pun ada. Tapi baru ep 1. Suka gak watak Coach tu

So malam ni nak tengok ep 2 pulak

iols skrg dah xde bias2 nak kena tgk sapa pelakon dulu..iols try tgk dulu beberapa episod, kalau best terus tgk...

Sedih pulak dengan family Baek Yi Jin:'( tak sangka krisis ekonomi sampai macam tu sekali eh. Terpaksa berpisah dengan family. Yi Jin baru je 22 tahun terpaksa berdikari sendiri. Masalah bapak dia, kena hadap juga:'(:'(:'(

Tengok adik dia tunggu kat luar rumah tu pun, rasa sedih gak. Macam baik je adik Yi Jin ni:'( Dah tua agaknya ai. Senang tersentuh;P

Suka dengan cara penulis dalam cerita ni. Nampak sangat beza pemikiran remaja 18tahun dengan 22 tahun. Ni part yang ai paling suka. Benda kecik pada mata Yi Jin, tapi pada mata Hee Do dah cukup besar. Yi Jin rindu bab memikirkan keja sekolah yang banyak. Time umo Hee Do, bab keja sekolah tu pun jadi masalah juga kan.

Satu lagi ai suka Ji Woong dengan Seung Wan th. Nak tengok lagi sejauh mana friendship diorang.

Susah nak lupa uols:lol: apa lagi part Hee Do idolakan si Yerim ni. Macam ada vibe lesbo lgbt pun ada;P ntahla chuols. Macam tu kot eh mengidolakan seseorang. Cara memandang tu pun teringat Handmaiden;P:lol:

So far masih tak faham relationship Yerim dengan Yijin. Diorang ni couple ke. Tengok preview macam Yerim suka pulak dengan Jiwoong

Sebab family Yi Jin ni golongan conglomerate…bilakrisis ekonomi, company jadi bankrupt & kena gulung tikar…rasanya South Korea ni terkesan teruk sebab pinjam duit dari IMF…lama diorg nak pulih balik…

Yu Rim & Yi Jin mcm adik & abang je kot…dari perbualan diorg, dulu ayah Yi Jin yg sponsor Yu Rim…
