2PM′s Taecyeon Shares His Thoughts on 20-Somethings Today

As a character who represents Korea′s 20-somethings, and while studying to become a police officer and overcoming numerous incidents, Kim Kyu Hwan winds up in the National Assembly after Taecyeon shared his thoughts on today′s 20-somethings at a production presentation for the drama, held at the Grand Ambassador Seoul Hotel on July 9.

"I am acting as Kim Kyu Hwan, a student who has been preparing for the civil service exam for three years," said Taecyeon. "My friends, like Kim Kyu Hwan, are either working, still studying or preparing for employment."

He continued, "As life catches up to them, rather than be interested in politics, they′re more worried about their own paths. With high youth unemployment rates, I think they′re losing hope. I can′t help but think 20-somethings are passing through a long-winded tunnel."

Meanwhile, Assembly will premiere on July 15 at 10 p.m. KST, following the conclusion of Masked Prosecutor.
