‘Racquet Boys’ is a challenge for sixteen boys and girls who dream of becoming idols in the badminton world, and depicts the growth of these people in a rural area at the end of the earth. It was loved by small screens for its ‘good drama’ that excluded provocative content.
In the final episode, Yoon Hae-gang (Tang Jun-sang) and Na Woo-chan (Choi Hyun-wook) were drawn to win the boys’ championship. Han Se-yoon (Lee Jae-in) became the youngest member of the national team, and Kang Tae-seon (Kang Seung-yoon) also wore the Taegeuk mark on her chest by winning the preliminary round, which came back after 10 years, against Yoon Hae-gang.
