The rising drama, Record of Youth is receiving high praise by netizens for what many originally believed was a product placement for a public service announcement.
In the most recent episode, Sa Hae Joon (Park Bo Gum) and his friends were shown at the hospital receiving prevention needles for cervical cancer.
During the scene, Won Hae Na (Cho Yoo Jung) asked her boyfriend, Kim Jin Woo (Kwon Soo Hyun) to get vaccinated for cervical cancer.
When Kim Jin Woo was taken aback because he doesn’t have a uterus, Won Hae Na informed him that him receiving the vaccination would benefit her as a result.
Despite trying to resist, Kim Jin Woo ultimately gave in and ended up visiting the hospital with his friends.
He even convinced his friends by informing them, “It’s not a vaccine just for women. It’s just as effective as a preventative measure when men get it.”
The three characters even shared the social media post, “Love requires preparation.”
And netizens praised the drama’s effort to spread awareness.
- I never knew men had to get vaccinated for cervical cancer until now.
- I love this!
- It’s good to spread awareness.
- I hope this information spreads far and wide.
- This is very important for everybody to know.
But what made netizens rave even more was when they found out that the scene was never inserted for the purpose of a product placement.
That scene wasn’t inserted for the purpose of a product placement.
