2020 may have been not the greatest year in other aspects, but it has been a stellar year for fans of Korean TV dramas who have been able to binge-watch drama after drama during the lockdown, thanks to Netflix’s continued addition of some of the greatest Korean shows. Another highly anticipated K-drama that Netflix is about to drop is ‘Record of Youth’.
‘Record of Youth’ follows the heartwarming story of three main characters, all of whom are individuals in the fashion world but strive to be something more than what they are. The show depicts the struggles of a generation where dreams have become a luxury and their non-glamorous background plays a major part in determining their success in the fashion industry. It’s also a love story between the main characters, Sa Hye Joon (a smart, handsome, and popular model who wants to make it big as an actor but doesn’t have much of a screen presence) and makeup artist Ahn Jung Ha (who is bright and cheerful on the outside but lonely on the inside, and has a huge crush on the model Sa Hye Joon).
Will the youthful spirit and blazing passion of these individuals take them far and help them make it big? Only time will tell. This Netflix Original romantic-drama is created by screenwriter Ha Myung Hee and directed by Ahn Gil Ho. Here’s a detailed rundown about the show’s premiere episode: its release date and details of where to stream it.

In the lead roles are Park Bo Gum (playing Sa Hye Joon) who shot to fame in 2015 with the most beautifully written drama ‘Reply 1988‘, and cemented his fame with the 2016 hit drama ‘Love in The Moonlight‘, and Park So Dam (of ‘Parasite’ fame) playing the makeup artist Ahn Jung Ha. Actress Park So Dam, apart from the Oscar-winning film ‘Parasite’, has also worked in another acclaimed drama ‘Cinderella and the Four Knights’. Also starring Byun Woo Suk (who is playing Won Hae Hyo) of ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo‘ fame.
The reason this drama is highly anticipated is because of two main factors.
