First love trauma gets reawakened in Twenty Again

Another promo poster’s out for Twenty Again, featuring series lead Choi Ji-woo in a three-step transformation from mom, wife, and then to university student. Better backwards than never, right?

The teasers for this show have been cracking me up, and I’m tickled to read more about the “first love trauma” suffered by our main love interest, Lee Sang-yoon, who was Choi Ji-woo’s classmate back in high school. She was his first love and they’d had a flirty relationship, but one day she disappeared without notice, “like a midsummer night’s dream.” What he didn’t know was that she’d gotten pregnant at 19 and married Choi Won-young, and his curiosity over what happened to her became so all-consuming and obsessive that it became “almost like a chronic disease” and prevented him from having any romantic relationships. Which is why he is, to this day, decidedly single. Hee!

Well, that explains why he’s put out to discover that she’s one of his new students in the incoming class (he’s become an professor in the meantime). He insists his first love wasn’t a sweet, beautiful existence, but the more he interacts with present-day Choi Ji-woo, the more his old feelings start to resurface. I just hope that means there’s a lot of dorky Lee Sang-yoon happening, because as much as I found him sizzling hot as the all-perfect, all-knowing genius in Liar Game, I always find the heroes just a bit more appealing when you rumple them up a little.

Below, we also have some stills featuring Choi Ji-woo’s son in the show, played by Kim Min-jae, and his girlfriend Sohn Na-eun, both of whom are appalled that Mom’s now also their classmate. The son has his sights on building up his specs and working toward his bright future, while his girlfriend is a bright, pretty student who lives a typical twenty-year-old’s life, enjoying dating and having fun. The question is: When Mom is sitting next to you in class, do you worry more about impressing her or being mortified on her behalf?

Twenty Again follows Oh My Ghostess and premieres on tvN on August 28.

Cute premise! I wonder what they have planned for the leading man, I like both choi won young and lee sang yoon, so it's hard to know who to root for!

From the plot summaries I've read, Choi Won-young's character sounds like a total dick, so I don't think it'll be too hard.

eeeech.. Absolutely disgusting. As if we need another middle aged actress going back to college. Enough with this stupidity.

But... she'll be playing her own age though. What's so stupid about an adult going back to University as an adult?

Girl, did you just throw (unintended) shade at Lee Young-ae? O___O

You better wish MBC doesn't take revenge for insulting their Queen. Else your bias will be in a 200-episode drama full of makjang twists and slap-happy people with 30-minute long PPLs.

I applaud anyone middle-aged going back to continue or further their education. It's so hard and I think it's encouraging we can have dramas like that.

But I know a number of middle-aged women and men who go back to college. I've been trying to convince my mom to do that too. It's sad that such a premise is appalling to you. Age should never be a deterrent for going after a goal.

My response to your comment i, "What???" I can't believe that in this day and age, a discriminating remark like that can surface on a public forum.

I have full respect and admiration for middle age people or older going back to study. I'm a middle-ages ahjumma, and I know that it's not an easy thing to do...especially if you've been a stay home mum.

At my daughter's convocation last month, one of the valedictorians was a man in his late 60s, maybe even early 70s. I'm guessing his age cos he said that his mother is 92. He was a dancer and owns a dance company, but still pursued a PHD in geography in his late years! That's what I call a life-long learner! I have full respect and admiration for him.

I ... am hoping we've misunderstood your comment. Mature age students going back to university for study - whether it be for further education or for the first time - should be celebrated. Learning is a lifelong activity, and everyone is welcome to it. Many cannot afford to study at a younger age.

I am glad to see your responses :D because I am one of the "old" people that went back to college. The truth is that it never crossed my mind that people would care about my age, but unfortunately I found some of them in the way and that was a sad surprise...
Anyway, it was a great experience :D I made awesome young friends, I lived the student life again, I got the degree and the job I wanted. So I take the opportunity to encourage all of you to be yourselves and pursue your dreams beyond prejudices. :)

Elena, well done :) no worries, all of us support you.

Age is just a number. study and learn new things is a life long process. i actually give my utmost respect to older ppl who pursue their studies. anyone shudnt give up on study regardless of their age

@Nora What ? How is it stupid ? There are a lot of housewives, middle aged women out there going back to college because they want to experience what they couldnt when they were young or just want more education.
I cant believe you used the word "disgusting" O.O

+1 I'm confused to how this is "disgusting." Maybe the original commenter is confused about the premise of the show... she's not pretending to be young and she will have no relationships with the students, as far as we know. I think the concept is actually quite fresh and honest about the life of a middle-aged woman.

Maybe Nora hasn't been to university? Because this is quite common, and no one thinks it's weird or disgusting. Middle aged women getting an education? How dare they?! *rolls eyes*

Just ignore her. Either she's ignorant or she's a troll. Don't pay her any attention.

Not sure why it's consider stupid or disgusting to have a middle age woman going back to school? She isn't pretending to be 18 or so. What reason is there deem something stupid and disgusting??? Please do tell...

I see it relatable in a way particular living in US, we have many wives, mom, even senior elder going back to college to fulfill their dream.

I definitely agree with you, java, that male leads are miles more interesting (and attractive) when they aren't perfect. Dorks need love, too!

I'm so excited for the show to start--don't let me down, tvn!

Spoiler alert for anyone who doesn't want to know plot points in advance!

This is from GF's article about this from last month: "Choi Won-young (I Remember You) plays her psychology professor husband — he’s an intellectual snob who looks down on his wife for being uneducated, and asks her for a divorce." So, it does seem like a divorce is probable.
