The drama follows five university students living in the same house. Each women holds their own burden and backstories as they trudge through life.
So the drama is about five women living in the same house and dealing with their own burdens while forming a strong bond of sisterhood. Sounds familiar? Yeah. Age Of Youth is the unofficial Korean adaptation of the c-drama Ode To Joy (欢乐颂 and it was also aired right after Ode To Joy finished airing. Ode To Joy has been a drama that’s precious to me and one that I hold close to my heart so when I chanced upon Age Of Youth, it was a given that I had to see it, k-drama or not. Initially I found myself comparing it to the c-drama version and found many similarities (unsurprisingly) but also many elements that made the drama more original and really unique. While I am aware that AOY is NOT an official adaptation of OTJ, I will be making some comparisons between the two dramas just because of their obvious similarities.
