First, this drama may deserve a lower rating actually, considering I dropped it at Episode 12 when I first watched it two years ago and only recently picked it up again and finished it. However, I'm giving it a 9/10 because after finishing it, it has become one of my favorites and I already went back to rewatch the series.

The beginning of the series is slow, as they really go in read more depth with the main lead's character and career developments. But I dropped the series at first because I found her character to be unrealistic, as she's ever so hopeful in a world of corrupt politicians--funny, because this becomes the point of the series. How do the four main leads change as they try to bring justice in society/what kind of leaders do they develop into? Can Chen Yi Jun remain as hopeful and persistent throughout? After picking up the series, I began to root for Chen Yi Jun's "unrealistic" idealism myself.

The last ~three episodes were rushed and it felt like some scenes were missing, but didn't leave many unanswered questions, in a good way.

I would say the best part of the series was the amazing character development, as you really begin to feel for the different characters by the later half of the series, whether it's fortunate/unfortunate how they've developed.

Overall, the series was very inspiring to watch if you're interested in social justice/politics. Unlike other political dramas, this isn't just about corrupt political dealings and unlike other coming of age dramas, this isn't just about romance/family/career.

Both have a similar vibe and feature a group of friends working together and fighting toward a cause. You see them transition to adulthood. In A Good Way is more about their university days while Youth Power is more about post graduation.

    This drama was surprisingly really good. It started out slow and boring in the beginning, but got better the more I got into it. it gets super interesting once they get into the dirty side of politics.

    I started watching this drama but most of the scenes revolve around protest and I skipped through a lot. Yi Jun needs to realize that Ye Qing cares about her a lot. Yao Yuan has become a typical jackass playboy second lead with his character cheating on Yi Jun and being dishonest.
