The drama Twenty-Five, Twenty-One revolves around Na Hee Do’s youthful love story, leaving viewers curious about who she ends up marrying. The mystery around her husband’s identity led to fan theories connecting the drama to Jaurim’s song “Twenty-Five, Twenty-One.” This song has a deep meaning for its vocalist, Kim Yuna, who wrote it in memory of her boyfriend who died from work exhaustion when she was 21, and he was 25.

Fans were shocked when tvN used the song in a promotional video, sparking theories that Baek Yi Jin’s character might have a tragic end similar to the song’s story. The intense emotional connection both the drama and the song share added layers to the viewers’ experience.
