Love doesn’t conquer everything in this world and that's okay

April 3, 2022

2521 is a tear-jerker full of life-lessons K-drama. I know people have been disagreeing and disappointed with how the ending went. But I think, the 2521 ending fulfills the original story that they were trying to convey. The emotional attachment I developed to this drama is unbelievable. I love everything from how the characters develop and seeing how they flourish into their adulthood. Maybe it’s because I am now a college student and that is why I greatly relate to this drama. Yes, it is true that we took high school life too easily and for granted. Yes, it is harder to meet up with friends now that we are old. Yes, people grow apart and that's okay. Yes, it is okay even if you don't meet your friends often. As long as you have each other, you will always find time even if that means every 6 months or so.

- I am happy that Baek Yijin did not die or experienced some catastrophic event.
- I am happy how the girls are still supporting each other even though they have their own lives.

I think I am happy that everyone got the ending that they deserve including Yurim and Heedo's mom. I also think it is appropriate how Minchae's dad is never revealed nor is present-pandemic adult Yijin. I know I may be the minority but I think everything from this drama is just good. I may have bawled my eyes and wished for Heedo and Yijin to be the end game. But given the circumstances of how their relationship has gone down, it is much better for them to go their separate ways. Very realistic and has a bittersweet ending. I also think that Yijin and Heedo's endings is happy to some extent. Yijin is able to revive his family back and has a stable job. Heedo is happily a mom to Minchae, though I can't really say anything about her marriage to his husband as he was not shown in the story. This makes sense because this is about first love and their early adulthood/youth days.

I think 2521 set the standards for 2022 Kdramas. I know the ratings have gone down due to the ending and I understand that people are very frustrated with the ending. But I definitely think it is not rushed, and that it perfectly fits the overall narrative of the story.

So for those who are watching 2521, I hope you learn some lessons and learn to enjoy your youth. Happy viewing (maybe) and prepare some tissues by your side. I may or may not have a breakdown watching episode 16 and while writing this review...

Cheers ?

A youth drama at its finest (until the youth fades, just as it does in life)

People may be divided on the ending, but I don’t care – this was the perfect youth drama. I don’t watch dramas to escape reality; I watch them to feel all the emotions from the journey of life. I watch to step in someone else’s shoes, even for a moment. I watch to find a glimpse of relatability; to feel comforted in knowing that some experiences are universal and to get insight into the parts that are unique. Those differences are the ones that make me feel blessed for the life I have and both jealous and motivated to drive towards the things that are missing. On that basis, Twenty-Five Twenty-One delivered in spades.

What kind of drama is Twenty-Five Twenty-One? We got the best aspects of school, sports, family, activism, romance (oh, is the romance truly heart-fluttering), slivers of comedy, life, death, hardship, sacrifice, and everything in between. This drama doesn’t veer into the melodramatic territory. We get a slice-of-life as it is and as it can be. I laughed out loud and cried my heart out. The shining moments of youth and first love will stay fondly in my memory, while I remain in the process of writing my own story. I’m 25 right now, and walking in lockstep with these characters made me ultra-reflective of my own choices. In hindsight, I might've had my “Cutie Pie” moments, but not a true first love like this yet – because the highs were never so high and the end was never so low. I’m a practical realist and a planner. I’m ambitious in my career, but choosing that has come with its own sacrifices. I’ve had wonderful moments with friends, and for that I am forever grateful. At the same time, I can’t help but feel like COVID-19 has stolen the prime years of my youth. We’re desperately trying now to make up for lost time, and this drama motivates me to seize the fleeting opportunities remaining to live with reckless abandon.

Now let’s talk about that ending. I admit that I can be a glutton for punishment; that I enjoy the release that comes with a good cry. So naturally, I downloaded the last episode on Netflix right before taking off on a flight, mere minutes after hearing about the ending from the live broadcast in Korea. I started crying about two minutes in, and the waterworks kept pouring. There were moments of joy mixed with regret and sadness. I LOVE a good cry – and this one classifies as good because everything made sense to lead us here. Watching this drama on-air was an Experience (with a capital E) because fans twisted this way and that to dream up a fantasy happily ever after. I am thankful this story went with Occam’s Razor here. No one should feel blindsided by Twenty-Five Twenty-One. Perhaps the original synopsis could use a re-think, but from episode one, we have a sense of what to expect. The show does NOT end on a frustrating open ending. The loose ends get tied up exactly the way they should.

Some people lamented that there was no point to the present-day scenes, COVID-19 and all. I disagree with that wholeheartedly. For one, it dropped constant hints towards the ending – and I don’t think anyone can truly say we were misled here (other than the picture in the photo album, maybe?). There were way more hints pointing towards the conclusion that we got than any other. Moreover, the present provided an immense device not only for the narrative, but for life as well: hindsight. We become fonder of the joyful memories and thankful for the trials that shaped us into the people we are today. I love and appreciate nostalgia, but it has a time and place. We need to keep going and looking forward; in real life, there aren’t often second chances 20 years down the line. The "times" can be a villain, but we can still find pockets of happiness. The “times” is a character of its own in this story, in a way: important world events bookend the story perfectly, from the IMF crisis to other ones that gut-punched us (and Yi-Jin, Hee-Do, and Min-chae!) when we least expected them. It was poetic in a sense to see the people most affected by these world events get depicted on screen. As humans, we are incredibly resilient beings who learn to adapt and survive. From our perspective, it hurts to think that a beach trip can be forgotten, but forgetting only proves that there were even more meaningful moments ahead.

Without the choices she made, Hee-Do wouldn’t have Kim Min-Chae – and I’m sure over the years, she wouldn’t change that for the world. Moreover, I am proud of Hee-Do for putting herself first and recognizing what she needed from the people in her life. Baek Yi-Jin and Na Hee-Do’s lives intersected for a beautiful moment, but paths diverge. As with all relationships, we either grow together or apart. Some people rage at the thought that others could have a happy ending, but it’s all based on priorities. Moon Ji-Woong and Ko Yu-rim serve the perfect foil for the Yi-Jin/Hee-Do story: their relationship works because Ji-Woong’s world revolves around Yu-Rim; he puts her first and always meets her way more than halfway. I’m not saying everyone in this world should be a Ji-Woong. On the contrary, we need to do what’s right for us. Baek Yi-Jin couldn’t live with himself as someone who reported on the inconsequential and the mundane. He had bigger things in store for his life, regardless of how closely they resembled his childhood dreams. Likewise, Hee-Do’s unwavering (hah!) ambition served as the frame for this whole show. When neither is willing to bend, you can only hope that the direction is the same.

My only gripe here was Hee-Do’s allusion to her husband living overseas in the present. Oh sweet Hee-Do, if you know what you need from a partner and you're giving up something beautiful to make it happen, then where is he?! I know the point is that her husband doesn’t matter (and a HIMYM-style ending with a new character in the 11th-hour would’ve rung hollow), but the fact that he wasn’t around for her retirement (bless Yu-Rim and the TRUE love story of this show), the ep 16 funeral and the fact that he seems to travel a lot in the present rather than getting to know his daughter Min-Chae makes me sad for you. You can rationalize it by saying that we are all too susceptible to fall for what we know --- this is why generational patterns persist, after all. We accept the love we think we deserve. But Hee-Do demonstrated in the tunnel that she KNOWS she should deserve more, and I wish we at least got to see a little bit of her happiness (and Yi-Jin’s!), even with faces obscured while cycling through a montage of the big moments of their lives. I needed the news montage from 2002-2009 to include a montage of their happiness, because they clearly continued living and learned to move forward during that time! And then another montage from 2009 to present would’ve compounded that the choices and sacrifices they made were worthwhile.

I appreciate this drama because it made me live and love alongside these wonderful characters. It pushes me to reflect on my own life, cherish the memories of the past that has shaped me, and strive to capture the remaining moments of my own youth to the best of my ability. If you want to feel this broad spectrum of emotions, don’t be discouraged by the distraught fairytale-hopefuls flooding the internet discourse on this show. Twenty-Five Twenty-One is worth watching, and anyone who has yet to see it has the pleasure of knowing what they’re in for: life in all its bright, shining, mundane, and challenging glory. Twenty-Five Twenty-One doesn’t shy away from depicting a story that should feel so relatable and true to so many. Finally, I can’t help but end this review in (an adapted version of) Baek Yi-Jin’s words, because it rings true after everything: “The result was bittersweet, but the journey was beautiful.”
