Whoever is doing the posters for February 2022 tvN drama Twenty Five Twenty One is going out of his/her way to emulate Start Up in vibe and presentation. The newest poster has leads Kim Tae Ri and Nam Joo Hyuk hanging out against a blue sky backdrop, take out her popsicle and his can of soda and it’s just Dal Mi and Do San in another incarnation. Even the individual character posters copy Start Up with the leads framed against symbols that represent their character’s personality and likes. I lovelovelove Start Up so I don’t have a problem with getting more excited for an upcoming romance that may deliver the same connection and feels but from a promo perspective it may sell Twenty Five Twenty One short to “look” so similar in ways that immediately makes me as a veteran drama watcher to form the connection. With that said, I’m just glad the first love and the final love in this drama is the same guy lol because another second ship whine-fest will yet again be ruinous for the mood of happy live watching.
