Premiere Watch: Record of Youth

Time slot: Monday & Tuesday
Broadcaster: tvN
Genre: Family, coming-of age, melo
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: With more dramas delayed and our airing schedule a bit ahoo right now, let’s consider ourselves lucky that Record of Youth is arriving on schedule. Are you ready? I’m ready. tvN’s latest drama has a lot of quiet-but-bubbling buzz behind it — it’s Park Bo-gum’s last drama before army, it’s Park So-dam’s return to the small screen after the mammoth success of Parasite, and it’s director Ahn Gil-ho’s next project after things like *cough* Forest of Secrets and Memories of the Alhambra. Cast and production aside, the story’s been promoted as a warm, relatable, and encouraging tale of youth. Put a drama like this on tvN, and it sounds like an instant winner, right? I’ll have to wait for the premiere episodes to see if the tone of this drama matches up with what I’ve been imagining in my head, but in the meantime, is there any harm in expecting a gem with the perfect balance of struggle, success, and heart?

His previous project was in 2018. I think it's safe to say I'm used to massive gaps in between seeing him on-screen.

I like Secret Forest, but I watched this one for Sodam. I have to say this, it's very tedious when they focus on PBG's family plot. It feels like Korean day drama when they turned the focus on PBG's family.

The only thing that is interesting about this is PSD's character, Jungha, meeting Haehyo and co. That was fun.

I feel like Ahn Gil Ho took a shot at family drama, but it fell flat. Perhaps it's the fault of the Ha Myung Hee.

Finally! I like this kind of story, young people achieving their dreams with the harsh reality as ennemy.

This has everything to be a hit. BUT the writer did Doctors and Temperature of Love. I'm super scared that past episode 6 it's just going to be a snoozefest. I really hope noooot...

i want to watch it for PBG but i really do not like the Female lead, Park So Dam. I'm not a fan of her acting.

i mainly dislike any FL with carrot orange bleached hair - same went for kim go eun in that Cheese Trap drama or whatever it was called... it's not the color of the hair so much as how pale they are and it does not look flattering or natural at all....

I'm not a fan of PBG's acting either because he always act in the same roles - boys next door, so you're not special snowflake for not watching.

Besides, with or without you, Korean rating is still good. That's what it's important right now.

PBG in Hello Monster clearly not boys next door type.

Park Bo Gum in I Remember You is basically the opposite of your standard boy next door. I had no idea he could do creepy so well, and still be that beautiful though?

Also, aren't you the one who keep trolling on every female celebrities because you have some issues against Korean actresses other than your bias, Kim Yoo Jung?

I remember you talking shit about Kim So Hyun because of your petty jealousy of her vs Kim Yoo Jung. Honestly, you need to grow up if you still hold some grudges.

I LOVE IT! Just finished today's episode as well. Ahhh, I have to wait another week for the next episodes. PBG looks so goooood! I'm really like PSD in this.
