We all have dozens of memories when it comes to summer vacations. Visiting our grandparents or traveling to a new place with family. Making new friends, enjoying every moment to the fullest, and sometimes meeting with your first love. As we grew up, the excitement of such vacations was lost somewhere behind the fast-track life of ours. As a result, we lost the spark in our lives. To find that spark back and give our own self some quality time, we all need a break. The break is, in fact, a necessity for all of us. A chance to be happy again and to explore the beauty that surrounds us.
Summer Guys is a K-Drama that showcases one of such break in the lives of five youngsters, which turns out to be a life-changing experience for them. Released on 30th March 2021, it is a drama that focuses on how these five people put all their efforts into saving a bar on an old cocktail beach at Jeju Island.
