Park Bo-gum is coming back with a new Korean drama, Record of Youth and it will be premiering on Netflix in the second half of June. And we are so happy to see him come back to our screens. Just look at his handsome face.
Record of Youth is about the story of young professionals as they go through the trials of advancing their careers in the entertainment industry. At the same time, they are faced with the challenges presented by their family backgrounds. The series is entered around three main characters:
Park Bo-gum (Encounter, Reply 1988, Love in the Moonlight) will play model-turned-actor Sa Hye-joon. A model transitioning into an actor but fails audition after audition which leads into a loss of self-confidence.
Park So-dam (Parasite, Cinderella with Four Knights) plays An Jeong-ha, an aspiring makeup artist and a smart young woman with a strong sense of self. A bright and cheerful character on the outside but lonely on the inside. And she is a fangirl too.
Byeon Woo-seok (Dear My Friends, Search: WWW) plays Sa Hye-jun’s best friend Won Hae-hyo who wants to prove himself through hard work. He is friendly and gentle, but competitive. Because he gives his utmost effort to the things he cares deeply about, he cannot stand being brushed off just because he was born into privilege.
We can’t wait to watch the chemistry between the three actors on screen. Record of Youth, produced by Studio Dragon and Pan Entertainment (Winter Sonata,The Moon Embracing the Sun, Fight for My Way and When the Camellia Blooms), will premiere exclusively on Netflix outside Korea, while in Korea, tvN has the show’s first-window broadcast rights. Netflix has not release the premiere date of Record of Youth but we are definitely patiently waiting for more information.
