In a time when dreams seem out of reach, a teen fencer pursues big ambitions and meets a hardworking young man who seeks to rebuild his life. There is a lot of debate over the last episode. It's either 0 or 1; meaning to say a reviewer either liked it or didn't. The other episodes have all same ratings; people loved them, if to say so in a twenty five twenty one sentence.

I also wanted to understand the real intention of creators, when they showcased the last episode; where the primary purpose was to portray break-up in a bold and comprehensive way.

Maybe the intention was good, but somewhere I felt few pieces missing or not given justice. I would like to elaborate that here. The two leads: Hee-do and Yi-jin drifted apart, mainly due to their job and workloads. While Yi-jin had to fulfill his commitments after his family's bankruptcy, Hee-do never liked her mother's job, because she never spared anytime for her. Now when Hee-do faced the same challenges through Yi-jin, she thought best to part ways due to known/unknown situations she was already afraid off, rather twenty five twenty one into them again.

I would say, yaa, a person in early twenties may think so, but that should not be the case. Let me now jump to Yu-rim family.

Her hard working father mostly remains outside driving his van. Her mother runs a restaurant. Inspite of poverty challenges, they live happily. Yu-rim waits for her father, sometimes for months, and even drinks with him behind her mother: that's called love, that had come after sacrifice and patience.

The patience here personfies the trust, the family had on each other. When Hee-do broke up with Yi-jin, the primary reason was the time that he couldn't offer her, as he used to.

Yi-jin always knew about it, and yet he moved forward, thinking he could manage stuff, she would understand him. Now I twenty five twenty one a question here. Would it have been the same if the two had got married? Or after a child? That's where the echo of problems start resonating. It should be the trust that should have kept them together. Out of that trust, they should have worked up to find a solution of their nascent stage problem rather jumping into conclusion of breaking up.

As per me, break up is never an option after you have met someone who stands for you, keeps you smiling, beckons you when it's wrong, appreciates your success and above all, with whom you feel safe.

If a job was the crux of your breakup, then either your love fell short or it was always a crush. 8 stars for all the other episodes except last.

[43] The series also placed first in viewership ratings for all its 16 episodes, in both the Metropolitan Area and nationwide. [44] Additionally, it has featured in Netflix's "Global Top 10" (non-English edition), a weekly list of the most-watched international Netflix series, for ten weeks in a row (as of the week ending May 1, 2022).

[45] [46] The drama's success was attributed to its "retro-sentimental" vibe that was presented through the use of props, fashion, and locations that were able to invoke nostalgia to the generation that experienced the 1990s. It was also stated that it had succeeded in gaining the empathy and sympathy of viewers as it depicts the struggles of the IMF period in Korea, which viewers connected with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

[47] Pierce Conran, in his review for the South China Morning Post, stated that the show had "an appealing theme, a story that is well told, great acting and clever staging and editing". [48] Rhian Daly of NME described the drama as "a nostalgic dive into the memories of youth and the value of dreams." [49] Commercial impact [ edit ] The popularity of the series led to the elevated recognition for actress Kim Tae-ri, who was stated to have emerged as the new "Nation's First Love." [50] The series was also notably popular among K-pop idols, with several artists like BTS' Jungkook, Aespa's Karina, Red Velvet's Yeri, Girls' Generation's Sooyoung, Blackpink's Lisa, among others, sharing that they have watched it and recommending it to their fans.

[51] [52] Actor Gong Yoo also revealed that he watched the series Twenty-Five Twenty-One when he recommended his fans to watch My Liberation Notes. [53] Following the drama's conclusion, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism launched a travel product (itineraries alongside various accommodation and rental vouchers) touring the filming locations of the series, which includes the Jeonju Hanok Village, locations surrounding the Seohakdong Art Village, and the Hanbyeokgul Tunnel where the drama was shot.

[54] Retail company 7-Eleven reported that sales of its bakery brand Breadum had increased three-fold following the appearance of its pastry products on the show. The company then announced on April 7 that Breadum has launched two additional products in collaboration with the drama. [55] [56] Investment company Daehan Securities has credited the success and high topicality of Twenty Five Twenty One alongside the recovery of television commercials for the 12% sales growth of CJ ENM, the twenty five twenty one company of broadcast channel tvN, during the first quarter of 2022.

[57] With 2022 marking the renewed popularity of retro style in South Korea, Twenty Five Twenty One was stated to have greatly contributed to the "retro craze".

[58] In the Philippines, it was reported that the drama, with part of its plotline focused on fencing, led to an increased interest on the sport due to the series. [59] Criticism [ edit ] Despite its popularity and commercial success, Twenty-Five Twenty-One became subject to a few controversies. Netizens debated about the series' main plot line which involves romance between a legal adult and a character that is initially introduced as a minor, although a poll conducted on website Nate came out with 77% of over 3,000 respondents stating that there is no problem with the drama's love line.

[60] The drama also faced criticism for a scene in its 15th episode portraying a news coverage of the September 11 attacks, depicting the female lead smiling at her boyfriend giving live coverage of the incident, which some viewers deemed "inappropriate".

To clarify this from the beginning, I'm not that type of person who judges an ending based on his admirations for the cast or anything like that. I'm not that type of person who says an ending is bad just because it's sad. I'll try to write my review from an objective perspective as much as I can, because I think this is the most righteous way of writing a review. For me, the last episode was full of emotion and it really made me cry at the point were the flashbacks came in (I don't usually cry when watching something but this was on another level of nostalgia and sadness :) ), and this was a really good thing, because they managed to make this story so impactful and gave it a real meaning and place in the viewer's heart.

I knew from the beginning that they might not end up together because Yi-Jin's dream was always to gather his family together again and Hee-Do's dream was to be Yu-Rim's rival and be someone in the fencing community. There wasn't a common long-term dream between the two, which led again to the possibility of them breaking up.

(And also, the present day scenes) I think this is the first kdrama where I wanted to see a last minute change to a happy ending because of these reasons: - letting go of something wasn't in Hee-Do's character.

Through the series we saw her multiple times not wanting to give up and trying again to succeed (ex: when she wanted to find why her mother didn't come to her father's funeral and why she was so cold-hearted with her this whole time; when she wanted to succeed in her fencing career). If she gave up finding the reason behind her mother's behavior, her life wouldn't be like this in the present time and if she just gave up on fencing she wouldn't end up being such an important person in Korea.

- they continued to care for each other and support each other (the bus stop scene). They showed themselves how much they love and support each other but they part ways anyways. They ignore their feelings somehow and decide to let go of all, a thing I cannot understand given the fact that they still have feelings for each other.

Also, I think the creators gave us the ending we wanted to see through Ji-Woong and Yu-Rim. This ending is weird because they breakup because of the distance that was between them but Hee-Do marries someone that isn't with her either and that is very strange.

Hee-Do's husband doesn't appear once. She's alone at her final match (only Yu-Rim was there for her), she comes alone at Seung-Wan's father funeral and even in the present day scenes she's all alone.

The present scenes are the weirdest because her husband doesn't appear once and doesn't even know the news about his daughter (the fact that she wanted to quit ballet but her father still sent a costume to her shows the lack of communication between Hee-Do and her husband). That's why, in my opinion, a happy ending in the past was a better option that could also relate to the events from the present, given the fact that her husband was as busy as Yi-Jin was, but hey I guess they wanted just to put in the light the imperfections of a human being.

They wanted to show us that we make our own chances, our choices and wishes pave our ways to the future, that all us make mistakes that follow us our entire life. Also, I can't end this without saying a word about the cinematography (I really liked the composition for most of twenty five twenty one shots and their look), the editing (especially at the end, with the flashbacks, it was a masterpiece), the direcion of Jung Ji-Hyun (minus the few times where he broke the 180 degree twenty five twenty one without a solid purpose, in my opinion), the osts (which are so beautiful) and finally the colorist (who did a phenomenal job, this show really reminded me of Hotel del Luna, because of the deep reds and the dreamy look some shots had).

I wanted to write even more but twenty five twenty one ideas just flew out when I started writing this, so bad :)) In conclusion, this was twenty five twenty one fantastic drama and I would recommend this twenty five twenty one anyone. The pace declined constantly as the things got sadder, the characters were nicely polished and the action was so diversified. The sad ending was a bit forced and all the things that happened didn't align properly but I can't judge them too much for this (maybe I think this way because I was never in a relationship, who knows :)) ).

Tin Apr 16 2022 5:36 pm S P O I L E R Haven't watched it yet, was actually waiting for it to end before I start, but I was told that the FL and ML won't end up in the end. I was so devastated twenty five twenty one I was really looking forward to watching this, but no matter my wish to watch this won't supercede my devastation knowing they didn't end up together.

So pass for me, I'll just wait for NJH next series, hopefully will be good ending. Mujigae Apr 08 2022 5:03 pm When they first announced the casts, I have so much anticipation with Kim Tae Ri and Nam Joo Hyuk pairing. But knowing that somehow K-drama can be flop in further eps, I watched this drama without any expectation. But it turned out twenty five twenty one be Gold.

I never feel bored with any single scenes. Fresh characters, great chemistry, beautiful lines and amazing cinematography. The characters development felt very natural, it was like we were growing together with them.

I will never forget and never regret the eight-week I'd spent to watch it. It perfectly portrayed "youth": dream, spirit, rebel, justice, hard work, failure, friendship. and first love. Based on my 16 years experience of watching K-drama, this is definitely one of my favorite K-drama all time!

Plot 8/10 Cinematography 9/10 Ost 8/10 Chemistry 10/10 Charlie Kim Apr 06 2022 1:59 pm [SPOILERS] IMO, the ending of HeeDo and YiJin is the most realistic ending that could happen. YiJin has been reminded not once but three times (by HeeDo’s mother, coach, and his reporter sunbae) that their relationship might not gonna worked. Even after he transferred to another department, HeeDo’s mother also remind HeeDo that it still might not get any better.

Yet they still love and support each other until they felt not loved or not supported enough. They started out strong, until life and careers path stumbled each other way. It was a beautiful love story that doesn’t work. Superb writing, without any plot armor to ML / FL. Might take a long time to process this tho, haha! Ris CE Apr 03 2022 1:21 pm SPOILERS AHEAD: Some may not like the ending but it is a glimpse of reality.

Na Hee Do never wanted to be left hanging because her mom already did that out of necessity. Back Ye Jin grabbed the opportunity to work abroad for a better pay and twenty five twenty one reunite his family which he eventually did.

It was a beautiful love but their goals did not align. Still a beautiful albeit a bittersweet love story for me. BYJ❤️NHD Apr 03 2022 2:26 am This is one of the best dramas, if not the best out there!

It clearly showcased one's struggle in life (be it at school or work)and how you can overcome them, the love, and friendship. I love the camaraderie of the 5 characters, its solid! How I wish I have friends like them. The storyline is very realistic, anyone can relate to twenty five twenty one. I always feel a wave of emotions everytime I watch the episodes.

I've never cried, laughed, and fell in love this hard in a series before. And, may I say Nam Joo Hyuk is excellent here! This is by far the best kdrama he's had! My God, I totally swooned and fell hard for him. He is sooo convincing, just one look at him and I'm in love!!

There is something about the way he looks and smiles at you that makes you fell in love with him, no words needed. I'm sad that this is about to end. I'm still hoping for the Baekdo end up together.

And, I think they will. There may be hiccups in their relationship when they were 25 and 21 (thus the title), but I still believe they will end up together. I still have this gut feeling that BYJ is Min Chae's appa! Trepsd Apr 03 2022 2:10 am Felt super depressing watching this episode number 14, i understand sometimes this happens in real life (trust me i know) but this was not just a "crush" or a " vague love"a real LOVE like this in real life would survive any obstacle.

Its just sad the writters went this way. Cheers NamJooHyukis❤️ Mar 31 2022 4:07 pm I love everything about this drama, I cant stop raving about it!

The plot, twists, storyline. Everything's perfectly executed. Its very rare to see a drama these days that will get you hooked and this one totally delivered from the first episode down to ep 14.

It will make you laugh, reminisce your high school life and first love, it will teach you the importance of friendship and family. And, may I say this is by far Nam Joo Hyuk's best performance ever! He is sooooo convincing that I totally fell in love with him! I can't get over how great his acting here. If i could rate this it will definitely be a perfect 100! JDH Mar 31 2022 1:10 pm I love everything about this drama!

Love the character development, twenty five twenty one solid friendship, and how the real struggles of youth are depicted. The story was outlined well and nothing was forced.

It just went smoothly, perfectly written! It makes you reminisce your time back during high school. As for the cast, you can really see the camaraderie of everyone.

They really portrayed their roles really twenty five twenty one. This is by far Nam Joo Hyuk's best drama ever!! For me, this is the drama to beat, nothing has come close so far. I've had a roller coaster of emotions while watching this. I've laughed, cried, got excited, and totally fell in love. I can't believe it's about to end, I'm already having sepanx as early as now! Highly recommend this! Jean Mar 31 2022 12:43 pm I think (and hope, fingers crossed) Yi Jin and Hee Do are end game.

Min Chae could be YJ's daughter. As to the surname Kim, I have a feeling that YJ was just adopted.

twenty five twenty one

In one of the episodes, his father said he was his biggest consolation (I think that was the word) 10 years ago.

Also, the father registered a business under the 2nd son's name. If YJ was indeed his legitimate son, he could have listed the company under YJ's name. This twenty five twenty one me to think that YJ was adopted and his real name was Kim Do Hee, which explains why MC was a Kim. Hope my theory is right, really shipping Baekdo!!!! I so love this drama, I've seen it twice already while waiting for the last 2 episodes.

Dokja Mar 31 2022 12:38 pm I think this drama is one of the best dramas, because this drama is very close to real life. This can be felt through the ups and downs of an athlete, the meaning of friendship, a life where hope goes according to our plans but is always awakened by the harshness and cruelty twenty five twenty one the world's slaps, the pressures and demands of work and of course what true love is.

That's what makes youth so beautiful, crazy and unforgettable. Twenty five twenty one to the ending, i don't know how this drama will lead, whether to a happy ending or a sad ending. I will accept whatever it is gracefully. Diane Mar 31 2022 6:29 am So is MC Hee Do's daughter since setting is summer 2021 and if MC is 13 or 14 she would have been born 2007 or 2008 which would have been in the middle of HD fencing career.

Re when HD must have gotten married, it could have been earlier than 2009 given YG's comment regarding late congratulations. At that point he may not have been in contact with HD for years. Sheng Mar 30 2022 6:56 am I'm thankful for the secondhand cheers, motivations, support and comfort I'm getting from Heedo x Yijin and the rest of the Taeyang Squad. For someone who's struggling mentally and emotionally, by watching this drama and taking inspiration from their different stories, I felt validated and, at the same time, comforted.

Happy to have found another drama that I can go back to and rewatch whenever life's acting tough on me again. As to the ending, I'm still positive that Heedo and Yijin is going to be an endgame. I don't know, I just feel that a love like that shouldn't be wasted. And I'm hoping to witness that in 2521. Regardless if it's sad or happy, this is one of the best kdramas in the history.

I'll take all the life advices I got from you. ⭐️ Maggie Mar 28 2022 12:50 pm For me twenty five twenty one a realistic drama. This is how life is, you dont always end up marrying a guy you fell in love with in high school. It happens but not always. Friends come and go. We had friends in high school but we don't really know where some of them are now. Thats how life is, people grow apart, we all follow different paths and twenty five twenty one people don't become part of that journey.

Secondly its weird that we thought these 2 ended up together or marrying each other. Hee do's daughter doesn't seem like she knows baek yi jin so I don't understand why people thought these 2 got married.

Well 2 more episodes to go. Lets see how it wraps up Cool Mar 21 2022 12:03 pm I am glad what yeji did u want to leave u shud leave, but i dont get how coach can force her to stay,because isnt it a students choice and parents? I felt very happy when she stuck to decision and quit. I am also glad for seungwan for taking a stand but i didnt get why they showed so much crying music and crying for her ,it was a personal choice and not a big tragedy,school had wrong policies and she chose herself to quit, so its all cool.

I liked how she talked to teachers confidently,it was so catharatic, things iwanted to do but couldnt. MAO Mar 17 2022 3:47 am This is such an extraordinary film and is probably one of the best K-dramas I've ever watched. The comedy, the romance, the realism, and the torturing truth of life is all there. It's so fun to watch and see how the story goes and is not what I expected from this film. I was hesitant at first thinking it would be another boring and cliche K-drama but this is far from that.

Not only does it give you the feels every moment in the episode but teaches you about adulthood and dreaming. The cast members are so talented and did an amazing job portraying their roles in the drama, especially Kim Tae-ri, she's proving yet again how much of an outstanding actress she is. Her character is so inspiring making me want to do my absolute best to try and reach my dreams as well. If you're looking for a heart-warming and a slice of life drama, this is the series for you, would definitely recommend it to twenty five twenty one who's looking for a good series.

Lea Mar 16 2022 2:42 am This drama is my happy pill. I look forward to it every week and I'm already dreading it's ending because I don't want it to end. I like NHJ and are watching the other cast for the first time.

Fell in love with KTR's acting and personality. She is soooo likeable and what an amazing actress! The story line gets better and better! It makes you wonder what the plot twists would be. It takes me back to my childhood days when all I did was hang out with my friends, play and start to talk about boys. The feeling of falling in love. Getting scared of growing up and growing apart from friends. ahh this drama is so refreshing. Daneri Mar 15 2022 12:42 am Ammm this is my theory .

Maybe Yi jin and Hee do are together and they are Min chae's parents, maybe the last name will be explained later and the fact that he is adopted fits perfectly (Yi jin's mother's last name is Kim, maybe that's why he changed it and that's why his daughter has it). As for why he is not present is because he became an international correspondent and with the virus he must maintain quarantine every time he returns to the country, so he still does not visit his daughter, and thus justify why Hee do's mother says she sees him at the station and she does not react because she knows it (in the end she should know when her husband returns).

As for Hee do's memory loss I read a theory that she indeed has selective memory loss and it's due to the loss of a squad member and that member is seung Wang (remember what she says to Yi jin on the beach, maybe she suffers from depression and it has serious consequences ??) that's why Hee do can't remember that particular trip because it hurts her and she has hidden all her photos and hence Min che doesn't recognize her father as a young man because he changed his name and never saw one of his photos before.

. So much for my report ??? (and my wishes for a Happy ending ??). pixie Mar 14 2022 8:50 pm okay I Love Kim Tae Ri So Much <3 and of course nam joo hyuk :p i cant estimate their future story since they not showing Back yi-jin (in future) sbdhsbds im nervous. pls dont make sad ending, i ship both lead sjbdhsd Loveee love the chemistry, i hate the fact tae ri looks so young but actually she is older than me *clown face The way yi-jin stare to hee do, i cant *blush who said he cant act?

pls watch weighting lifting fairy *roll eyes btw this drama so healing 10/10 recommend!!!! Rocky Mar 13 2022 4:47 pm Theories: 1. Na Hee Do and Baek Yi Jin might not really the endgame. Both BYJ and NHD will choose their respective careers. The relationship of NHD's mom and the coach is a foreshadow. Some higher ups from the tv station will put a pressure towards BYJ as he have a personal relationship with NHD.

BYJ doesn't want to ruin NHD's reputation as he also want to stay in his job to provide for his indebted family.

twenty five twenty one

And after years of working as a reporter, he might have enough money to pursue his true calling-which is to work at NASA. 2. Someone from the squad (especially Ko Yu Rim) died that's why NHD has a selective amnesia. NHD's mom is so keen in those photo twenty five twenty one and looking at NHD's friends.

Also, the existence of NHD's diary plays a major role that even though she might forget it, the diary will serve as a reminder of her happy days. 3.Kim Min Chae is not NHD's biological daughter, it might be from one of her deceased friend. jga94 Mar 13 2022 3:42 pm Kim Tae Ri is such a good actress.

And kudos to Nam Joo Hyuk- he's back. I thought he lost his charm in Start-up but here, his tandem with Tae-ri is like the perfect yin and Yang. The rest of the crew are all funny and charming. Definitely gives me a vibe like Reply 1988 meets Weightlifting Fairy hana Mar 13 twenty five twenty one 1:35 pm if baekdo doesn’t end up together, it makes sense since writer has always been giving us hints but if the friendship of taeyang high school squad also twenty five twenty one, this gonna be my most heartbreaking thing ever ?

Why you giving us a scene where adult heedo forgetting her first vacation writer, whyyy I overthinking everything now ?? superbeomgyu Mar 10 2022 2:44 am I've watched hundreds of kdramas. But this one is on to be on my top twenty five twenty one. I really love the storyline, the script, and kim tae ri and nam joo hyuk is so fitting for the lead role. the supporting casts are great as well!

I'm so excited on how's the drama gonna end. who's minchae father and why its not yejin? :( Kuuku Mar 07 2022 3:25 am This drama is so beautiful inside out. Watching Na Hee Do brings out a feeling in me I can't figure out. It makes me so happy, so full, so satisfied. Every expression, every scene, every dialogue or thoughts are artistically woven. Like @Mas Gondrong wrote, Twenty-five Twenty-one is a master piece. vil Mar 06 2022 11:49 am This drama is so good! I don't understand why Ko Yurim gets so much hate, I actually like her.

She doesn't do anything bad and just trying to do her best, I kinda understand where she comes. There's no unlikeable character in this drama, everyone tried their best to achieve their dream with their own background story.

Everyone deserves to be happy. Diya Mar 06 2022 11:19 am I am getting too attached with this drama. It points out a lot of aspects in life.

I cried so hard in Episode 7. Kim Taeri is such a brilliant actress. Baek Yijin is now my standard haha I love the friendship between jiwoong & seungwan. I love all the soundtracks too! And the cinematography & well edited of every clips in this drama. Sometimes I feel like watching a clip from a movie. Bona is a good actress too, people hated her character meaning she delivered it well.

Aaaahhh so much more that I want to write because this drama is a masterpiece. The casts, storyline, scripts, cinematic, ost - perfect package ? 2125 Mar 04 2022 2:56 am Just watch it for the first time, now i have to wait eps 7 cannot wait! I love this drama, its same tone as reply 1998. But i would say i prefer this story, and the cast was great esp kim tae ri, she is great!

I know its too early but if they dont F up this pace and story. I would put this drama to be one of the best drama in 2022 Rui Mar 01 2022 9:28 am this movie remind me a lot of my childhood. Growing up in the 90's practicing Kendo from a young age having that competitive drive like Hee Do. Out of all the dramas that are currently running at the moment this tops my list.

I look forward to each episode every week. I am not sure why this has such low ratings and definitely deserves much more praise. I think the view ratings speak for themselves as they are much higher than the other dramas that are currently airing. If you grew up in the 90's playing sports while growing up this would be the perfect drama for you. It just feels so nostalgic and to be able to relive it and experience watching in from another perspective is beautiful.

Erika Song Feb 27 2022 11:13 am ★ Twenty Five Twenty One - Episode 5 and 6 - My thoughts★ Y'all, I love love love episodes 5 and 6 so twenty five twenty one Episode 5 made me so emotional and I just want to keep rooting on the happiness of both of them and their dreams—Hee Do finally being a national fencing team player and Yi Jin's dream to reunite his family and just to get back up on life. I really lost it when I saw Yi Jin on the payphone kept on playing Hee Do's voice message and when he reached her hand and they both run together even apart!

Yes, that's the beauty of this drama! Two people who share grief, root for one another, and want to seek happiness together—tightly holding hands while running even though they are apart!

They are so far away and yet, they still bring comfort to each other. What a powerful message of their special friendship. No matter what happens to both of them in the future, I will really treasure episode 5 and I believe both of the characters as well!

Now, episode 6, I think this is more upbeat and I loved how it emphasized them trying to move forward on their dreams and also an episode where both Yi Jin and Hee Do grow up and climbed up.

With Hee Do trying to have a boyfriend and her becoming Yu Rim's rival, on the other hand, Yi Jin is starting his career as a trainee reporter. We also see more of Hee Do's hard work coming into fruition and just by looking at her, you really see how happy she is and it makes you become inspired as well. I also want to add that Hee Do is so pretty when her eyes glisten, when she smiles and when she talks about fencing.

Now, I've come to fully understand why Yi Jin misses her and why he finds comfort in her. I know, some might want to keep the romantic interests going years later, I get that, but some beautiful relationships are rooted in friendship and emotional support to one another. I just knew they already have special spots in their hearts, they will not deny that because they knew it as well. ♥ I'm so rooting for both of you, Hee Do and Yi Jin! Fighting and continue fighting for your twenty five twenty one Spring Feb 26 2022 9:44 pm I dont find screaming twenty five twenty one points scoring cringey ,i actually love it how kim tae ri does it as it looks cool but i do find it weird why they scream so loud after every point and its very loud, i am sure director took it from real life so i am curious why it happens in fencing, havent seen such strong reactions in other sports like tennis etc.

So i speculated min chae came to live with heedo 2-3 years ago and i was wrong seeing ep 5as we see kid min chae walking upto mom. The humor in this episode at times reminded of racket boys and then i remembered ji woong was also in racket boys, i liked rb humor but later i got bored so i didnt like 2521 turning similar to rb and its good that in ep 5 after middle part rb like humor, drama again changed its tone and became serious with yi jin and hee do scenes. Ep 5 also gave lil but startup vibes.

Also the music in heedo duel scenes was a variation of tune from startup when dalmi etc would set out on tasks. I hate that music cause it reminds of SU and i dont have good memories with startup. Its almost like ptsd twenty five twenty one desker and su music tunes feel lile triggers lol. I really want yijins brothers makeup to be toned down and someone really should lighten up his lipstick like why he needs such lip tint.

Also namjuhyuks lipstick should also be reduced,these lipcolors on boys are standing out a lot and not going with drama's vibe.

Kim tae ri really shows 1 thing that you dont need botox ,fillers( those she prolly has it done on her) or super costly designer clothes to be noticed and carve a place. In her shyttiest sweat pants she stands out more than any other twenty five twenty one could for the person who she is.

I really love her dishevelled hair look during matches it gives a very natural feel,in addition during matches kim tae ri always gives a very determined look which looks very genuine and motivating, like she is living that moment. No matter how well hee do was written it is with kim twenty five twenty one ris intentional or unintentional mannerisms,body language,body movements and gestures that make hee do look a deep and very unique character, someone else playing it would have made it look shallow and maybe looks conscious.

I like when shes cheerful how she hops aroundtilts her head ,sways her arms; i like how she turnslooks passive agressive towards mom and yu rim; and really like her disappointed face, sad face, crying face expressions.

Heedo is always screaming in her normal moments but when she is sad and crying she goes very silent except for when she bawled while returning book. Any other actress in those sad scenes might be scream crying and hyperventillating like having an onsetting asthama attack. Really like coach and her acting and first time i like the suburban accent,shes doing it so attractively.

My fav seen was when both coach and hee dance in alley, coolest by far. Lily Feb 26 2022 8:29 pm People who said that female lead is annoying probably didn't know the fact that Na Hee Do's character is a 18 years old girl which full of passion and sometimes act quick without thinking. It's normal for a teenager to act aggressive and impulsive.

The actress (Kim Tae Ri) is a respectable famous actress in South Korea. Most Korean know her and all of her projects are guaranteed so good. She's known as a blue chip in SK. Her acting is incredible. She's 32 years old but she's able to perfectly portray a 18 years old character.

For me, she nailed Na Hee Do's 18 yo character. Later we will see her as the 21 yo Na Hee Do. I believe she will portray it really well too. I want to give big appreciation for this drama. Love everything about it. The story is heartwarming, love how Na Hee Do and Back Yi Jin support each other, make twenty five twenty one other stronger during tough times. Love how Na Hee Do twenty five twenty one so passionate about fencing and she works hard to achieve her goal which is becoming the national athlete.

Somehow watching this drama is encouraging me to try as hard as Na Hee Do too in life. What a great story and full of encouragement. Anyway, I watched episode 5 and the phone scene is literally one of my favorite scene.

It's making me in tears. Hee Do and Yi Jin support to each other is amazing, the way they get stronger after hearing each other voices. I hope they will meet soon. Looking forward to every episodes, this drama is highly recommended!!

Erika Song Feb 26 2022 11:04 am I think this episode will be forever precious in my heart. The fact that they provide comfort to another and their support for each other is still being hold in their hearts no matter how much time has passed and no matter how far away they are, that's what has got into me. I lost it and I really cried when I saw Baek Yi Jin kept on replaying Hee Do's message and when he grab Hee Do's hand and they run together even though that was just symbolic.

I think today's episode is realistic compared to previous ones where it has been really dreamy. Today's episode is bittersweet. No giggles, but just my heart goes to those people who keeps on fighting and dreaming and providing comfort to one another. I also wanted to talk to Yi Jin to stop blaming himself and to stop saying he was a coward for running away, no matter what a person wants to runaway, he will not do it unless the problem is not that big.

Yi-jin, you are twenty five twenty one good brother. Like, Hee do, I will keep on rooting for you! kim minchae Feb 26 2022 5:26 am Na heedo [born: 1980][age on year 1998: 18][age on year 2021: 41] Baek yijin [born: 1976] [age at 1998: 22] [age on year 2021: 45] Kim minchae [born: 2006] [age at 2021: 15] heedo and yijin feel in love at the age of 21 and 25 on the year 2001.

Na heedo`s age when minchae was born was 26 year old. Baek Yijin`s age when minchae was born was 30 year old. hope this help with your theories :) Eliz Feb 25 2022 7:58 pm @Patty I think Min Chae isn't Yi Jin and Hee Do's daughter.

Because if they were separated in 2001 when Hee Do's pregnant, Min Chae should be older (19 or 20). However, it seems she is still in junior high school. In 2001, Hee Do and Yi Jin were separated in good terms. Finally time gave opportunity for Yi Jin to pursue his dream as reporter (he was in broadcast club right?).

They were dating maybe just for a brief moment when Hee Do finished her high school. Then, they separated to pursue their own dreams, which was what they promise each other in the beginning of their friendship. Patty Feb 25 2022 11:20 am 25-21 I think this was the age when BYJ and NHD were separated on 2001. - my first theory was that BYJ had gone abroad and died later on 2001 after .maybe related with September 11.

What NHD's mother said that she met BYJ last month is just meeting him at his grave. - after watching ep.4 I though BYJ might be alive today but having no idea that he has a kid with NHD after they separated. NHD stop fencing because of her pregnant. Kim Min Chae knew the family's secret and realized how much her mother love her then choose to dance again.

I hope the ending will be the scene that Kim Min Chae brings her parents together again by calling BYJ "Appa" (Dad). then the secret revealed. Sunshine Feb 18 2022 8:29 pm There was a line in ep 2 that was so true and hurt me instead of touching me.

It was when yijin says to heedo " i miss those the worries i used to have it". When i was a kid i faced a rough patch which was rough but not big dealbut i used to excessively worry about things to the point of nearly exploding my head,every lil thing would be a worry to m tho life was goodit was just that i focused on bad things like thats the universe like manipulative shtty people etc etc.

Then few years later i actually actually hit a real rough patch and things were very hard that even back yijins worries seem like a joke to me ( they aren't a joke at all but just to give some perspective) it was so difficult; at that time i used to look back all the time at those years that i always thought were hard and i realized they were extremely easy and then i used to cry and cry and badly miss some of the worries that i used to bother so much about in past, they looked so much fun and ordinary small things to care about.

I made it out of rough phase,things normalized and i gained success but that nostalgic feeling and that pain i used to feel recalling those worries never left me ,probably also because they became lessons for me to learn to be always grateful and happy. I always thought its me who thinks this waybut when yijin said that it brought back flurry of memories and i felt happy that someone also thought like it and actually put those thoughts of mine and many others in words.

What i learnt from even cherishing those worries was always stay happy, be grateful, try to enjoy your life and never give in to worries and despair no matter how blocked your paths are or how hard the going is. There is always a thing darker then your current worries,be happy you are not facing an even dark thing.

Spring Feb 14 2022 1:37 am I think injeolmi the chat twenty five twenty one is go yurim. I never knew kim tae ri is 32 i thought she was 24she fitted high schooler role so perfectly.

If i knew her age beforehand i might have grown age bias too, a 32 playing 18 and i would have failed to judge her performance on merit. Not knowing age made me only focus on her and she meshed in so well. What i am not liking in na hee is constant yelling, she yells too much it hurts my head, it is because maybe how her director told her to do and how her character is like but i will appreciate less yelling. Apart from that she is doing very good twenty five twenty one. What i am noticing ,strictly speaking of only leads, is that even though so far nahee had more screentime than yi jin and it is more like her lifestory and that could be why she overshone him but still kim tae ri is hardcarrying the show due to her great performance to the point that nam jo hyuk seems almost invisible.

Njh is a good actor but not exceptional and offlately he has been getting casted opposite skilled actors like kim seon ho, kim tae ri and he totally gets overshadowed. At times i didn't even remember that he is even there in show, all i was focusing on kim tae ri as she totally stole the show.

Baek yi jin seems like a plot device to nahee to take forward her storyit is more of a young woman's story than a story of two people. Very entertaining first 2 episodes, hopefully it will continue being so cool.

It had twenty five twenty one our beloved summers vibe but better than that. Crystal Feb 13 2022 4:32 pm Even if min chae aint his daughter i dont care as story of their youth matters more than they got married or not, that is because the youth period in first ep is written so well that right now you feel no complaints about daughter being another man's child. A great story of their youth is what overrides everything else for me.

The storytelling in 1st ep is very breezy and fresh. Very nice 1st episode. Seeing nam joo hyuk i feared their will appear desker product placement, im badly traumatised by namdosan character and its link with desker,glad no desker here. Very fun 1st episodeat some places cinematography was very great. Though i found both na hee do and her daughter's attitude towards respective moms very rude.

I don't believe that being a parent's child means you should be fully obedient but you don't have to be so rude and yelling at them.

twenty five twenty one

It is a global provider of movies and television series via streaming and currently has more than 208 million subscribers. (Photo Illustration by Rafael Henrique/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images) by Crystal George 4 weeks ago Follow @creativecryss • Tweet • Share • x • Pin • Comment February was one of the best months for K-Dramas.

We saw the premieres of the Business Proposal, Forecasting Love and Weather and the instant hit Twenty Five Twenty One. All of the shows just listed are popular, but people just can’t stop talking about the season finale of Twenty Five Twenty One.

With how things ended, people want to know if there will be a Twenty Five Twenty One season 2. Twenty Five Twenty One is one of those series that you’ll go back and rewatch every couple of years. It’s heartfelt and will tug at your heartstrings at times, but it’s an enjoyable show to watch overall. Most people would say the ending was not what they expected or wanted. But I think the ending made sense for what the show was trying to teach viewers: a life lesson about love.

Sometimes a relationship just isn’t meant to last, and that’s okay. But there’s nothing wrong with looking back at all the good times you had with someone, especially if that person helped you grow. It’s a sad reality, but it happens. Now that Twenty Five Twenty One has wrapped up its first season, is this really the end of the heartwarming series? We shared what we know about a potential Twenty Five Twenty One season 2 down below.

How many seasons of Twenty Five Twenty One are there? Currently, there is only one season of the romantic drama series. The complete season is streaming right now only on Netflix. There are twenty five twenty one episodes total in the first season. The episode runtimes range from 70-89 minutes long. Will there be a Twenty Five Twenty One season 2? As of April 8, Netflix has not renewed Twenty Five Twenty One for a second season. It is still early in the process since the season finale just dropped on April 3.

Netflix typically waits a month or so after a show drops to see where the twenty five twenty one numbers land. In Twenty Five Twenty One‘s case, episodes were released weekly on the streamer and the season finale wasn’t until April. So if Netflix were looking into renewing the series, we probably would hear of a renewal within a month or two.

However, the chances of Twenty Five Twenty One coming back for a second season are low. K-Dramas are somewhat twenty five twenty one limited series in that they usually only consist of one season. The main story arc is usually resolved by the end of the season.

Some side stories might not be wrapped up nicely, but it’s not enough to justify another installment. Twenty Five Twenty One‘s ending might not seem complete for some people, but it did ultimately wrap up the main story. There is a slight chance that Netflix could renew the series since the show is popular. But we’ll have to see what the streamer decides.

Twenty Five Twenty One season 2 release updates As we mentioned earlier, the K-Drama has not been renewed for a second season. However, if there were to be a second season, our best release date prediction would be Q1 2023. But the show will have to be renewed soon in order for it to make an early 2023 release.

I know people have been disagreeing and disappointed with how the ending went.

But I think, the 2521 ending fulfills the original story that they were trying to convey. The emotional attachment I developed to this drama is unbelievable. I love everything from how the characters develop and seeing how they flourish into their adulthood. Maybe it’s because I am now a college student and that is why I greatly relate to this drama. Yes, it is true that we took high school life too easily and for granted.

Yes, it is harder to meet up with friends now that we are old. Yes, people grow apart and that's okay.

twenty five twenty one

Yes, it is okay even if you don't meet your friends often. As long as you have each other, you will always find time even if that means every 6 months or so. !!! MAJOR SPOILERS WITH DETAILS!!!! - I am happy that Baek Yijin did not die or experienced some catastrophic event. - I am happy how the girls are still supporting each other even though they have their own lives.

I think I am happy that everyone got the ending that they deserve including Yurim and Heedo's mom. I also think it is appropriate how Minchae's dad is never revealed nor is present-pandemic adult Yijin. I know I may be the minority but I think everything from this drama is just good. I may have bawled my eyes and wished for Heedo and Yijin to be the end game.

But given the circumstances of how their relationship has gone down, it is much better for them to go their separate ways. Very realistic and has a bittersweet ending. I also think that Yijin and Heedo's endings is happy to some extent. Yijin is able to revive his family twenty five twenty one and has a stable job. Heedo is happily a mom to Minchae, though I can't really say anything about her marriage to his husband as he was not shown in the story.

This makes sense because this is about first love and their early adulthood/youth days. I think 2521 set the standards for 2022 Kdramas. I know the ratings have gone down due to the ending and I understand that people are very frustrated with the ending.

But I definitely think it is not rushed, and that it perfectly fits the overall narrative of the story. So for those who are watching 2521, I hope you learn some lessons and learn to enjoy your youth. Happy viewing (maybe) and prepare some tissues by your side. I may or may not have a breakdown watching episode 16 and while writing this review. Cheers ? Read More This review may contain spoilers BUT SERIOUSLY, WHAT IS WITH THAT ENDING??? Dont get me wrong. I loved the whole series.

I even understand why they chose that path. Twenty five twenty one was titled Twenty Five Twenty One so naturally i expected the story to peak when they were at that age. But come on!!! Why end it like that? For the better part of the whole series we are being teased to guess who will end up together in a mystery-solving setup - a la the Reply series.

And then when it ended it wasnt even hinted who the father or the husband is. The kid is Kim Min Chae, after all so i kinda accepted early on that the father wasnt YiJin but to not answer it rendered the whole present timeline useless.

They could have removed the present Hee Do and her daughter and it wont change a thing, because they literally said its not important. The good: 1. I loved the fencing (sports) main theme. 2. Nam Joo Hyuk. Boy has improved so much, i may be inclined to think his handlers are doing everything to make him a multi awarded drama actor. It almost worked in Start Up, hopefully this is it. 3. Choi Hyun Wook. What a breath of fresh air. I loved him in RB, but he just shined here.

4. Kim Tae Ri and Bo Na as Hee Do and Yu Rim, respectively. Beautiful and capable. Let me get back to this later. 5. The coach, and the mother. I am inloved with Kim Hye Eun, makes me wanna see her past dramas. 6. I liked the fact that it wasnt a fairy tale ending. The so-so. twenty five twenty one. Kim Tae Ri. She is amazing in this role, but I get it, readers will hate me for saying this. There were some flak for the portrayal of a college student to a high school student love affair, it wasnt May December, but it was enough to make people think that high school HeeDo is way too young for an adult Yi Jin and at moments the idea is kinda cringy.

I guess the producers thought, well Tae Ri is older than Joo Hyuk in real life so it shouldnt be an issue. My question however is, will the producers think differently if an early 20-year old actress was playing HeeDo? Also, like i said she did great here, but is there no actress who is younger than Nam Joo Hyuk who can portray Hee Do's emotions?

2. The pacing and length of episodes. 16 episodes of almost 90 minutes each. Sometimes i feel like episodes are a little too long and the last 2 episodes in particular crammed too many issues a little too late. I guess thats how the format is for most asian drama - make the leads break up in the penultimate episode and then twenty five twenty one and jampack the finale to solve all the issues. But goodness i counted a few scenes that were a little too long that could have been used for some other things like how many times HeeDo and YiJin broke up and madeup.

I guess they thought extending the drama and the crying scenes will make people cry. My short attention span went a little haywire. The bad 1. The older Hee Do. The actress portraying the older Hee Do is beautiful and i love the subtle acting that connects both the past and present HeeDo. BUT, is she really needed. Did the story changed by adding her character?

Again, the non-reveal of the husband made her character useless, and i felt like that was done to trick the viewers into keep guessing who the husband is going to be.

Another thing, Hee Do's mother acted the older character. Why cant Tae Ri do the same? 2. Hee Do's daughter Kim Min Chae. By the name alone, we know she is not Back Yi Jin's daughter. But still, her presence teased us with the possibility of Hee Do and Yi Jin endgame. But alas they thought it wasnt important twenty five twenty one to be discussed. So why do we need the whiny kid. 3. Now back to the ending. The whole series was great overall, but my heart needs closure. Would i reccommend?

Definitely, just prepare to spend some time with it. Am i going to rewatch? Sorry, its just too long, and theres just too many drama nowadays i dont think i can.

Kudos to Netflix for giving Asian dramas chance to shine in a much bigger stage, makes my subscription very worthwhile. Read More
