Han Ye-seul, Kim Ji-seok, Ryu Hyun-kyung, and Lee Sang-hee are all smiles in the first 20th Century Boy and Girl poster. The four actors play the main characters in the said drama that follows three single women in their mid-thirties and depicts their growth as they experience love, friendship, and family bonds. The drama aims to give a realistic portrayal of single women navigating their way to maturity and dealing with their changing relationship with different people.
The production staff said that the shooting of the poster took place in early August in front of an apartment near Namsan in Seoul and was filled with the laughter of the actors amid the intense summer heat. The first poster gives off a positive energy that the drama hopes to convey to its viewers. Another poster with a different concept will follow soon.
Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine) is playing the lead female character, an idol-turned-actress with two close female friends — a diet-conscious flight attendant and a lawyer portrayed by Ryu Hyun-kyung (Empress Ki) and rookie film actress Lee Sang-hee, respectively. Kim Ji-seok, meanwhile, plays a successful businessman who has an MBA degree from Harvard Business School.
The first teaser for the drama was released on August 30. It depicts the childhood stages of the main couple played by Han Ye-seul and Kim Ji-seok and hints at their separation and subsequent meeting as adults. The two are very close friends since their childhood years, a type of relationship they are able to maintain until the day of their parting. The 1-minute teaser ends with them meeting in the present and laughing with each other.
20th Century Boy and Girl is a romance drama written by Lee Sun-hye of Reply 1997 and directed by Lee Dong-yoon of All’s Well With a Happy Home. It will premiere on September 25, replacing The King Loves on Mondays and Tuesdays.
