I feel like this is a controversy from another era, or that it really just doesn’t apply here when a viewer actually sees the specifics of the story. Nevertheless this weekend’s airing of Twenty Five, Twenty One is getting a lot more online K-netizen complaints compared to praise as the story really takes the shy crush of the high school female lead to the reticent college age male lead and moves it to the next step. Namely she’s 18 years old and he’s 22 years old, or 19 and 23 in Korean age, and the four year difference is a big deal to Koreans because she’s “underage” in their culture. So they may be okay with crushes and hints of romance but actually doing skinskip is a big no no at least until she’s graduated high school. I think it’s much ado about nothing and the high ratings of this drama indicates the majority of viewers are fine with it, so perhaps it’s a vocal minority that’s making it seem like a bigger deal.
