Nam Joo-hyuk expressed his jealousy towards Kim Tae-ri: “I’m only Baek Yi-jin, but he is your oppa?”
In “Twenty-five, Twenty-one,” Nam Joo-hyuk was caught expressing his anger toward Kim Tae-ri, mixed with jealousy and embarrassment.
tvN’s Saturday and Sunday drama “Twenty-five, Twenty-one” (Written by Kwon Do-eun, directed by Jung Ji-hyun and Kim Seung-ho, produced by Hwa & Dam Pictures) is a drama about the wandering days and growth of young people who lost their dreams in 1998. Its latest episode (12th episode) recorded the highest moment rating of 14.8%, ranking first in the same time slot for 12 consecutive times since the first broadcast. In addition, it continued its unparalleled wide range of moves within TV drama topics, ranking first for six consecutive weeks while Nam Joo-hyuk and Kim Tae-ri ranked first and second among drama topics announced by Good Data Corporation.
In the last broadcast, Na Hee-do (Kim Tae-ri) said, “I think his time is more precious than mine. I just want to let him have a wonderful experience,” surprised to hear Baek Yi-jin (Nam Joo-hyuk)’s sincerity. After that, Na Hee-do and Baek Yi-jin watched the Bosingak Bell together ahead of the new millennium in 2000, while Na Hee-do’s voice narrated “The year has changed and the century has changed. I want to change something too,” heralding a future relationship change as Na Hee-do kissed Baek Yi-jin.
In a related development, Nam Joo-hyuk is drawing attention as he is caught showing a totally different side of him, which was a strange jealousy tantrum to Kim Tae-ri, who smiled brightly at another man. In the drama, Baek Yi-jin was watching Na Hee-do talking with a male fencer senior. Na Hee-do burst into a bright sunshine smile as if the conversation with her senior was very fun, and Baek Yi-jin, who is filled with jealousy, bit his lips while spinning the umbrella. While the senior, who transformed the soft Baek Yi-jin into a “green monster”, and his appearance is drawing attention, viewers are also curious about what the conversation between him and Na Hee-do will be about.
On the other hand, Nam Joo-hyuk, along with the director, carefully examined the scene and tried to portray Baek’s emotions in detail. Kim Tae-ri, who appeared on the scene with a welcoming greeting, led a friendly atmosphere by practicing lines and explaining the situation in detail to help the actor in charge of playing her fencing senior. In particular, when Nam Joo-hyuk was focusing on practicing expressing his character’s emotions using the umbrella while standing far away by himself, Kim Tae-ri burst into laughter, saying, “Look at Yi-jin!” and turned the scene into a sea of laughter. After that, Nam Joo-hyuk showed his state of overindulgence, turning the umbrella handle faster and faster as his jealousy rises, raising expectations for the show as Kim Tae-ri and everyone at the scene burst into laughter.
Production company Hwa & Dam Pictures said, “Kim Tae-ri and Nam Joo-hyuk are expressing their excellent acting skills by deeply considering every emotion and feeling that Na Hee-do and Baek Yi-jin characters should reveal,” adding, “Above all, we ask for your high expectations.”
