Today, we’ll be discussing Episode 5 of 25, 21, the hit K Drama on Netflix starring Kim Tae-ri as Na Hee-do and Nam Joo Hyuk as Baek Yi-jin. We discuss:
The songs we heard during the recap: Their Friendship by Yoo Jong Hyun and Will by Byon Dong Wook.
Ko Yu-rim’s decision to switch her nationality and fence for Russia because of her family’s financial troubles.
Coach Yang’s efforts to secure the best deal for Ko Yu-rim and how devoted she is to Na Hee-do and Ko Yu-rim.
How Sung Hee blames Baek Yi-jin for not managing the distance between himself and his friends. Now that he’s broken the story of Ko Yu-rim’s move to Russian, he is deeply unhappy and regretful.
How the two most important people in Na Hee-do’s life, her mom and Baek Yi-jin, have hurt the third most important person in her life, Ko Yu-rim.
We wonder if it would have made a difference if Baek Yi-jin had NOT been the first to break the story; what if he were second or third?
How Na Hee-do and Baek Yi-ji as a couple are so different from Ko Yu-rim and Moon Ji-woong.
Sung Hee’s research into the drinking games that the friends played at the restaurant.
The K Drama elements we saw in this episode: crying, food, alcohol, holding hands.
