Eye Candy Friday: Baek Yi Jin

Posted December 9, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Eye Candy Friday is something that I’ve been doing since I first started my personal blog way back in 2003. That first personal blog is long gone but I’ve never really grown out of the eye candy phase. I’m always up for some eye candy. Whether it’s a character from a book (male or female, I don’t discriminate), a character from a movie or TV Show, if I loved them and want to gush about how much I loved them, you’ll find them here. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

This week, I’m featuring Baek Yi Jin from Twenty-Five, Twenty-One. Baek Yi Jin was such a highlight in this show for me. I adored him from beginning to end. He wasn’t perfect but he woke up every day and tried to be better than he was the day before so my love for him continued to grow with each passing episode. And even though his show didn’t have the ending that I wanted, I still really loved him. And that is why he’s this week’s Eye Candy Friday.

Twenty Five, Twenty One was a great show and even that ending couldn’t smash my love of the characters and the show as a whole. So if you haven’t watched it yet, you should because everyone should know Baek Yi Jin.

The South Korean financial crisis also causes Baek Yi Jin’s father’s business to go bankrupt. This leads to a life change for Baek Yi Jin, from living the life of a wealthy person to a poor person.
