tvN’s weekend drama Twenty-Five Twenty-One hit its best ratings, with the 6th episode scoring an average nationwide viewership rating of 9.8 percent and a peak of 11.3 percent.
Baek Yi Jin (Nam Joo Hyuk), who fled to Pohang to hide from his debtors, returns to Seoul after five months as a cub reporter of UBS. In the meantime, Na Hee Do (Kim Tae Ri) wins silver and bronze medals at major fencing tournaments, even though the coach didn’t favor her over Go Yoo Rim (Kim Ji Yeon).
Yi Jin unexpectedly reunites with Hee Do while he was covering a story on a demonstration site. Hee Do congratulates Yi Jin for becoming a reporter and introduces him to her boyfriend whom she has dated for only three days. The two share a funny yet emotional reunion.
Later on, Yi Jin goes to Gyeongju to cover the Asian Games as the sports reporter in charge of fencing. In the Asian Games, Hee Do competes against Go Yoo Rim for the gold medal. However, with only 3 hours left for the finals, Hee Do realizes that she had her foil switched with a Japanese contestant. Upon hearing this, Yi Jin helps Hee Do and finds the foil back. Hee Do thanks Yi Jin, and he says, “We would have met again one way or another. I wanted to thank you too because I would not be able to get through my time in Pohang when we were apart.” A few minutes later, Na Nee Do arrives at the fencing stadium and heads to the finals with a bright smile on her face.
