Age of Youth (2016)

There are two kinds of secrets: secrets that you can tell, and secrets that you can’t tell. – Yoo Eun-jae

Five girls in their twenties come to live together in a house called “Belle Epoque,” which means “a beautiful time” in French. Each girl has a particular personality, background, and issues. In addition to the five girls, they believe there is a sixth presence – a ghost living in the house, but each sees the ghost differently. As the girls feel a bond of sympathy and become closer, they also deal with their personal issues as they live out their eventful twenties. The drama follows their struggles and incidents dealing with relationships – within their circles, with dating, and with each other – and a variety of events they are experiencing including credits, part-time jobs, drinking, hopes and dreams.

    I live these kinds of shows that put emphasis on friendships instead of romantic love. Totally on board with the plot of the show and can’t wait to watch it myself!!
