Is The Series Based On Real Story?
‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One’ is loosely based on incidents in the 1990s. In December 1997, South Korea was in the midst of a serious financial crisis brought on by a major foreign exchange shortage. The country was on the edge of default. The International Monetary Fund’s Emergency Credit Facility and other international aid saved the country. Citizens and the economy followed the IMF austerity policies, which included salary cuts and tax increases until August 2001. People were stressed and depressed. As a result of this, some families were affected by financial difficulties, and jobs were difficult to come by.
Set against the backdrop of the IMF crisis, ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One’ deftly weaves the events and experiences of the time with the protagonists’ backstories. The shattered economy has pulled Baek Yi-jin’s family apart, forcing them to live hand to mouth. The cast members conducted significant research and training to get inside the shells of their roles. Actor Nam Joo-hyuk revealed that for his news presenting parts, he met with various sports journalists to better understand body language.
