During An Interview With Local Media, Kim Tae Ri Talked About The Comparison Of ‘Twenty-Five, Twenty-One’ And ‘Mr. Sunshine’. Both Set In The Past, Both Dramas Are Also Attracting Global Audiences.
Saturday-Sunday night drama, ” Twenty-Five, Twenty-One ” has concluded its story in episode 16. Recently, Kim Tae Ri conducted an interview with local media to talk about the drama starring with Nam Joo Hyuk .
In “Twenty-Five, Twenty-One”, Kim Tae Ri plays Na Hee Do who tries to pursue her dream of becoming a fencer. When he is threatened with losing his chance after his old school’s fencing club was disbanded due to the IMF crisis in 1998, Na Hee Do doesn’t know giving up.
Previously, Kim Tae Ri also stole attention when appearing in ” Mr. Sunshine ” as Ae Shin. Both using the setting in the past, Kim Tae Ri compares the advantages of each drama. These two dramas have both received great attention from overseas viewers.
“It’s light and cheerful, and especially easy to understand,” said Kim Tae Ri. “Mr. Sunshine’ is a good and well-made drama, but foreign viewers have to learn Korean history to fully enjoy it.”
If “Mr. Sunshine” is enjoyed along with understanding history, “Twenty-Five, Twenty-One” according to Kim Tae Ri is more universal. With this universal nature, according to him, it is not surprising that foreign viewers are also interested in watching it.
“But for ‘Twenty-Five, Twenty-One’, all you need is to turn on the television, watch and laugh… I think this is interesting for global audiences,” continued Kim Tae Ri.
Kim Tae Ri also responded to comments that he didn’t look like a celebrity his age. As is known, Kim Tae Ri this year is 32 years old but he has to play a 17 to 21 year old girl. So far, it seems that Kim Tae Ri has realized that there are comments about his baby face.
“I’m not saying I didn’t think about it at all. I received dermatological treatments as often as possible during filming. Every time I finished my fencing practice, I went to the clinic, I tried hard,” he explained.
Meanwhile, “Twenty-Five, Twenty-One” has ended with a rating of 11.5 percent nationwide in episode 16 which aired on Sunday (3/4). This drama is also ranked 1st in the Indonesian Netflix television series as of Monday (4/4).
