Youth of May (2021)

Youth of May (2021)

Is a drama about two young people who became swept up in the Gwangju Uprising that happened in May 1980.

Hwang Hee Tae is a troublemaker who hates anything predictable. His life is described as “a war on prejudice,” and in order to break the prejudice against sons raised by single mothers, he earned top grades and even entered the Seoul National University College of Medicine. He also plays the guitar and enjoys going to music cafes. However, due to unexpected events, he ends up experiencing the harshest May of his life.

Kim Myung Hee is a hard-working nurse who left home and is now living in Gwangju all by herself. Although she’s not friendly enough to comfort crying patients, she’s smart and skilful enough to find the proper blood vessel at once. She’s more like a warrior than an angel, and unlike her beautiful appearance, she has a cold exterior.

Lee Soo Ryun is Kim Myung Hee’s best friend. She has an easygoing personality that seems ajar with her preppy appearance. Coming from a wealthy family, she feels responsibility to be a frontrunner in securing justice in societal issues.

Lee Soo Chan is Soo Ryun’s older brother. He is helping his father with the family business after returning from studying abroad in France.
