tvN Confirms Early 2022 K-drama Twenty Five Twenty One with Kim Tae Ri as a Fencer and Nam Joo Hyuk as a Sports Reporter

This drama and casting news has been around for awhile but this week is the first official confirmation of the entire project. tvN has confirmed the romance and life empowerment drama Twenty Five Twenty One which is set during the South Korean financial crisis of 1997. It stars Kim Tae Ri as a female fencer who overcomes adversity and becomes a member of the national sabre team and Nam Joo Hyuk as a rich kid turned poor who becomes a sports reporter for a television network. Rounding out the cast is Bona, Choi Hyun Wook, and Lee Joo Myung and directing is the PD of You Are My Spring, The King: Eternal Monarch, Search: WWW, and Mr. Sunshine, and the screenwriter wrote Search: WWW. The drama will be released in early 2022 and I’m sure there will be tons of commentary about whether these particular two leads are suitably cast opposite each other but I’m personally cool with it and curious how these two will deliver onscreen together.
