Centering on three twenty-year-old friends and their transitions to adulthood, the film Twenty won the hearts of many viewers, and topped the Korean box office during its opening weekend on March 2015.

Aside from starring Kim Woo Bin, Kang Ha Neul, and Lee Jun Ho as the leads, the movie became well-received due to its relatable storyline and reality-based humor.

Thanks to its success, the film’s production director Lee Byeong Hun has considered turning it into a drama series, which will reportedly be broadcasted on jTBC in 2019.

However, the film’s drama adaptation will be getting a huge makeover as its plot centers around females and their adjustment to the adult life. This fresh take employs a different side to the movie’s original story, which focuses on the lives of the three male leads.

The knee-slapping comedy made its way to several theaters outside of Korea, and even had its international premiere at the 2015 Hong Kong International Film & TV Market (FILMART). It also led the Korean Film Actors’ Guild Awards to bestow Kang Ha Neul the Best New Actor award and Kim Woo Bin the Popularity Award in 2015. Ha Neul was also given the Favorite New Actor award during the 15th Korea World Youth Film Festival for his role.

Lastly, Director Lee Byeong Heon also received the Best New Director award from The Korea Film Actors Association Awards because of Twenty.
