House at Hannam-dong

Record of Youth (2020)

In episode 14 of Record of Youth/The Moment/Youth Record (청춘기록) (tvN, 2020), Sa Hye-jun (Park Bo-gum) talks to rich friend Won Hae-hyo (Byeon Woo-seok) about their lives, and the fact that although they live in the same neighbourhood, their families’ lives are very different. “The dazzling, bright lights of your house make us dream,” he tells him. While they have this conversation, we see Hye-jun standing on the rooftop, looking across the darkness towards the illuminated, expensive homes. Later in the same episode, Hye-jun meets Kim Jin-woo (Kwon Soo-hyun) on the rooftop and they discuss love, and how they’ve both grown and matured. [SPOILER] Finally in episode 16, Hye-jun visits the rooftop again, and while looking at the Hannam-dong spread out beneath him, he realizes that he has fulfilled his dream, and there is one last thing for him to do: enlist.
