Record of Youth (K-drama 2020)

Record of Youth follows the lives of young people in the world of modeling.

Sa Hye-Jun (Park Bo-Gum) is smart and handsome. He is a nice guy and a popular model, but what he really wants is to become an actor. He has auditioned for many acting roles, but hasn’t found success yet. Unfortunately, Sa Hye-Jun doesn’t have much presence as an actor. Meanwhile, An Jeong-Ha (Park So-Dam) works as a make-up artist.

Youth Record brought us behind the gleam of the Korean entertainment which shows the stories about achieving your dreams, the adverse prices of being famous; loss of privacy, scandal stories and rivalries. One of the important topics tackled in this drama is about courage and relationships; family issues, friendship, gratitude, forgiveness, individual growth, acceptance and personal happiness. I think these are the major points why I was able to finish the show despite the less coaster of emotions. Because of no dramatic highlights in this drama, it felt relatable in a sense that we are also enduring the same issues in our lives.

Youth Record is nice, but it bores me. The characters are refreshing, but not interesting. Visuals are good, but I find no chemistry between the main leads. The plot has the potential, but it doesn’t contain special elements to hook with especially the last two episodes that seemed monotonous. However, some people like this drama, no need to be clouted by my thoughts. I just want to say, I watched this drama because of Park Bo-Gum, no more and no less.

Verdict: 7/10
