Twenty Five Twenty One: Cast, Plot, & Episode Schedule

With the first month of the year ending soon, fans have been waiting for the premiere of the upcoming k-drama ‘Twenty Five Twenty One.’ So, here we bring you the episode schedule for Twenty Five Twenty One so that you do not miss out on any episode. Set in the year 1998, during the IMF financial crisis in South Korea, the love story follows a fencer and a sports journalist. Starring Kim Tae Ri and Na Joo Hyuk in the lead, fans have been waiting for the k-drama to release for months now. Kim Tae Ri will be playing the role of Na Hee Do, a high school fencer who’s a part of the national fencing team. While Nam Joo Hyuk will be playing the role of Baek Yi Jin, a sports reporter whose family went from riches to rags because of the crisis.

A few weeks ago, the actors got together with the production team for the script reading session. The actors are really excited to tell the story of a generation of 1998, a story that hasn’t been touched in k-dramas much. Talking about their characters, Kim Tae Ri shared that Na Hee Do began learning fencing as a fencing prodigy. But because of the situation, she falls into a slump. While Nam Jo Hyuk shared that Yi Jin is a very positive person and someone who could get along with anyone.

Twenty Five Twenty One: The Story That Will Follow

Due to the IMF crisis, Baek Yi Jin’s family has fallen apart. He’s put in a position where he has to navigate the cruel world. While the dreams of Na Hee Do are on the verge of shattering, too, as her poor financial conditions won’t be enough to send her for the national tournament, both of them make something work. As Na Hee Do arrives at the tournament to compete, Yi Jin arrives there to report the event. The production team has released a few teasers for the show and left the fans wanting more. Na Hee Do and Baek Yi Jin first meet when they are 18 and 22 years old and fall in love years later when they turn 21 and 25.

In the teasers, we saw Na Hee Do as a bright young high school student dressed in uniform and carrying her fencing equipment around on her back. She meets the part-time employee of the local bookshop Baek Yi Jin. Skipping time as we saw the two later roaming around hand-in-hand together on a snowy night. From them meeting being eighteen and twenty-two, the time moves forward to when they are twenty-one and twenty-five. The two reunite on a college campus, with Yi Jin carrying a yellow rose and Hee Do approaching him. The teaser only has a memorable voiceover that says, “When I was 18, we first called each other by name. When I was 21, we fell in love”.
