Twenty Five Twenty One did not end as we expected and left us with many unanswered questions. This Nam Joo-hyuk and Kim Tae-ri starrer Kdrama gave us moments to smile and moments to cry for and made us nostalgic about our adolescent friendship and love. Twenty Five Twenty One is a youthful Kdrama starring WJSN singer Bona, Choi Hyun-wook, Lee Joo-myung, Seo Eun-kyung and Kim Hye-eun along with Kim Tae-ri and Nam Joo-hyuk.
Twenty Five Twenty One starts with Na Hee-do, a fencing player in high school. She has been in a slump since her father passed away but still working hard to get back in her game. Her mother works all day and hasn’t really been supportive of Hee-do, making her lonely. When Hee-do meets Baek Yi-jin, a college dropout, she starts finding hope in her life. Yi-jin’s family has gone bankrupt and he has been trying desperately to make money and bring his family back together.
As Hee-do and Yi-jin move ahead in their lives and career, they find love and friendship and face hurt and hardships together. Their heartwarming journey is full of moments that inspire you and gives you hope that everything will be alright in life. It also showed us that life does not always go how we want but it is still worth living. Here are the best quotes from Twenty Five Twenty One that will touch your heart.
“Because you give me hope. And I want more for you. And it makes me want to do well, too.” – Baek Yi-jin
“I can’t right now but I’m going to make it someday.” – Na Hee-do
“Countless kids don’t know how to dream, but you do.” – Coach Yang
“My diary from those days is filled with just love and friendship. A time when friendship and love were all that mattered in life. A time like that lasts only for a moment.” – Na hee-do
“At times when I didn’t believe in myself, I believed in you who believed in me. That made things possible.” – Na Hee-do
“You made me smile. With you, I felt like I was on top of the world even when I had nothing.” – Baek Yi-jin
“If you’re waiting at the end of my misery, all of that misery was worthwhile.” – Baek Yi-jin
“Whatever you do, or no matter how you look, I’m in love with you for who you are.” – Baek Yi-jin
“The less you know about the person, the deeper the conversation gets.” – Ko Yu-rim
“You should also meet someone like that. Someone who inspires you to improve just by being together.” – Yi-jin’s mom
The beautiful and innocent love story between Hee-do and Yi-jin that started when they were still young adults, ended painfully and with regrets as they ventured into the adult world where the sacrifice of one thing or the other is a given. Their relationship fell apart when Yi-jin moved to the USA. Yi-jin chose career over love and Hee-do chose mental peace over a dying relationship. Both of them once relied on each other but sadly, ended up being burdens to each other.
One of the saddest endings in the world of Kdramas did not give us answers to many questions. Whom did Hee-do marry? Did Yi-jin get married as well? Who is Min-chae’s father? We will never know unless they bring the next season.
Twenty Five Twenty One is streaming on Netflix.
