A peek at Park Bo-gum’s family and support system in new stills for tvN’s Record of Youth
More promotional stills have been released for tvN drama Record of Youth, featuring new stills of Park Bo-gum (Boyfriend) along with the supporting cast members who play his family and friends.
The drama stars Park Bo-gum along with Park So-dam (Parasite) and Byun Woo-seok (Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency) in a coming-of-age story about chasing your dreams and learning to grow as you carve your own path through all the odds and obstacles.
Within this story, Park Bo-gum plays a model named Sa Hye-joon who aspires to become a great actor. Shin Dong-mi (The Good Detective) plays his manager, Lee Min-jae. Passionate and enthusiastic, she puts her whole heart and soul into supporting Park Bo-gum’s career and is determined to make him into a star. In the newly released stills, we see the two working closely together and Shin Dong-mi has a cute fangirl/proud mama duck moment as she watches Park Bo-gum participate in a shoot.
We also get a look at Park’s family which includes stoic Dad Park Soo-young (Soul Repairer). Although he cares and worries about his family, he has a hard time expressing his feelings and often ends up nagging them.
Thankfully, Mom Ha Hee-ra (Lady Cha Dal-rae’s Lover) is much more encouraging and showers her family with sunny optimism and warmth. Older brother Lee Jae-won (VIP) is a goody-two-shoes and model student character. But he is also self-centered and has a bickering relationship with his younger brother.
But Park Bo-gum finds support from Grandpa Han Jin-hee (No Second Chances) who dotes on his younger grandson. Finding common ground and relatability in Park more than any other family member, he attributes Park’s talent and charms to be inherited from himself.
Written by Ha Myung-hee (Temperature of Love) and directed by PD Ahn Gil-ho (Watcher, Forest of Secrets), tvN’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Record of Youth will be premiering next week on September 7.
