[Drama 2018] Thirty But Seventeen, 서른이지만열일곱입니다

Recommended Posts

Finally had the time to watch the latest two episodes ! Well... Everyone is amazing in terms of acting! I've never cried for a romance before, I mean when the leads do not know want to leave each other, I'm just like "okay, nice" but here I just cried with them together at the meeting point !! 

 

But something was funny, OMG FANG AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAH HE EVEN HAD THE FLASHBACK OF WOO JIN BIDING HIS FAREWELL TO HIM !!  Hahahahaha !

 

Anyway, I can't believe drama can be fast to reveal everything at once kkkk. From the aunt to Hwang Tae, Chan knowing about Seo Ri and Woo Jin relationship, and Jennifer's story WOW !!!! SO FREAKING FAST! 

 

One more thing, Chan and his uncle relationship is my favorite in this drama !

 

Can't wait for more lovey dovey atmosphere next week

Yeah. I can't wait for Seo Ri's response to his confession. It will be tear jerker as well.

Preview of finale is out! source: http://tv.kakao.com/v/390442456

OH WOW... KISSSSSS! This time it'll be an adult version, right? :D

Yoo Chan: I really like ahjumma. I want to protect you.

Woo Jin: You might get hurt

Seo Ri: I want to personally find aunt...

Ahjumma who knows aunt/uncle: (I) remember clearly...

Seo Ri: What do I do? I think it's my fault...my fault...

Truck driver came to find Seo Ri and bow.

Woo Jin: Seo Ri-ya

Angry Jennifer: If it's not because you... you killed... my husband.

That bloody big banner at the bottom... jjinja...ruining the feelsss.

 

Edit: I'm happy to know that Yoo Chan still decides to confess his feelings even though he doesn't stand a chance. This way, he gets a proper closure and says his goodbye to first love; move on with no regrets :)

Yes! Thank you for sharing! I’m glad as well that Chan finally confess! There is nothing wrong with his feelings, and I admire him that even though there are some signs that they can’t be together he decided to be brave and he will leave without regrets! 

And Jennifer finally having emotion! I’m glad as well that she become human again, and let it all out with the driver, I hope Amanda pray that she will finally have some peace at the end of the of this story. And of course the kiss! Swooning over here in the Middle East! I’m so sleepy and getting into my afternoon nap and then bam! Preview! My senses are all awake:lol:

Wow wow.... was somewhat expecting that actually, after the last scene of ep 14. Probably because they know they should compensate us for giving us only 16 episodes :P

 @mademoisellesia Ahhh that chicken banner :crazy:

 

Am I hearing wrong, Chan is confessing to SR now? I thought it might be awkward for all...:unsure:

 

SO LOOKING FORWARD TO MON!!!

Yeah that bloody chicken mania banner is making me maniac, LOLLL. It's distorting the perfect beauty of the kiss scene!

 

Yep, Channie is confessing his love for Seo Ri. I think it's a nice end to his one sided crush. He deserves it, and now he can move on with no regrets; start a new love relationship with Ri An! :P It is the better outcome for him and for his own good too, since he was too desperate to grow up to protect Seo Ri that he forgets he's a teenager and should live/enjoy the life of a teenager that Seo Ri never got to do.

But wouldn’t it be really awkward for them if Chan confessed? He knows SR and WJ are in a relationship and she might even become his aunt... In my eyes this is kind of selfish of him - he’s putting SR into a really awkward place.

 

If I really liked someone I wouldn’t want him to feel awkward and burdened, I would definitely keep it to myself to avoid future awkward family gatherings.

Looking forward to the coming episodes! Waiting for BTS and stills. 

 

@aisling totally agree, it's not time to stir up her emotions. However, I kind of was expecting that. I mean they would've not ended the drama without letting him pour his heart out even knowing his chances are too low, because in the end it's Chan, he fights for what he wants till the end not to have any regrets later.

 

Things seem to be happy and fine, now it's all about 'how' they're going to end it. Sweet scenes are much needed! 

 

Btw something just came up to my mind. In the passport of WJ his birthday was on 3rd of September. I wish that they had celebrated it!

Shin Hye-Sun ♥ Yang Se-Jong 'Thirty But' Writer Jo Sung-Hee Rom-Coms Are Special

Shin Hye-Sun ♥ Yang Se-Jong 'Thirty But' Writer Jo Sung-Hee Rom-Coms Are Special

 

Writer Jo Sung-Hee is (now) sufficiently a 'name you can trust' (and watch). SBS Mon-Tue drama 'Thirty But Seventeen I Am' (Writ by Jo Sung-Hee, Dir by Jo Soo-Won) nearing its finale, is unveiling its thematic climax.

 

'Thirty But Seventeen I am' (here and below '30But17') will finish with its 32nd episode this week. '30But17' which has blown healing winds to the whole country, has captured the hearts of viewers with an approach different from other drama formulas to date. Shocking episode, ridiculously forced conflicts, evil characters beyond comprehension, etc., avoiding such oft-used 'cheat code for success', it has demonstrated that a 'nice'**  drama can succeed also. Moving ahead to the finish, at the very pinnacle where everything is clashing together now, it is drawing from us a fresh sense of wonder***. Like the (musical) term 'crescendo' itself, it is the power of a steadfastly constructed script of Jo Sung-Hee.

** good-natured, well-behaved
*** 'awe-inspiring'


'30But17' is proceeding at a tempo that is different from romantic comedies of late. Compared to the 'current romcom' wherein the male/female leads feel an attraction at the start and by the middle they are already lovers overcoming numerous conflicts and then to a happy ending, (this drama) has chosen the path of somewhat slower pace. While other rom-coms spend much energy portraying the main couple's love affair beautifully, writer Jo Sung-Hee has spent much energy on the maturation* of the two leads**, their narrative spanning 13 years, and meticulous laying down of the subplot.*** Instead, while 'laying down the groundwork',**** its use of comical episodes, attractive character play, mystery elements and so forth has allowed no room for any tedium.

* maturation = development
** two leads = Seo-Ri (by Shin Hye-Sun), Woo-Jin (by Yang Se-Jong)
*** subplot = alternate track (secret back track)
**** laying down the groundwork = kitchen prep work


Having come through such foundation building, the viewers, with an expanded understanding of SeoRi-WooJin, at last during Episode 28's explosive revelation of the Most-Unexpected "SeoRi and WooJin's first crush 13 years ago was Two-Ways", could feel an overwhelming delight and not think it as odd. Thus having carefully built up many probabilities*** for the sake of a 'climax that explodes properly', writer Jo Sung-Hee's crescendo has finally paid off.

*** probable scenarios


Not only that, a story unfolding in this manner allows '30But17' to exist as a 'healing drama' from start to finish. No need to force a love triangle for the the lead couple for whom there's an inevitable decrease in tension after consummating their affair, no need to create a disrupter who upon a mere sight of causes mental disorder flashback.


In this way, writer Jo Sung-Hee through '30But17' has firmly established her unique style, standing out as a writer the viewers can trust. Exactly how writer Jo Sung-Hee will finish-stamp this yet unresolved unblemished romance '30But17' story, our curiosity, while being heightened, is also drawing attention for her next work.


'Thirty But Seventeen I Am' is about a 'mental physical mismatched woman' who falls into coma at 17 and wakes up at age 30, and 'shut out man' who has been living cut off from the world. Their '30 but 17'-like pathetic but comical romance. On the 17th (of Sept) 10pm, Ep 29-30 broadcast and 18th will finish with Episode 32.

Some excellent points about this writer. I have to agree, I should have been more patient with this writer.

It's been so long since we last saw WJ with a measuring tape. That shows his immense growth...

And I am going mad!

What a great preview.

I am all for Chan to confess. He's the type to 'Don't think, Feel!' and I think he would regret not telling his ajumma how he feels. Even if he realises the shared past and future for SR and his Mr Gong, I think he will be able to smile and wish them well (that's who he is!) and move on (perhaps with that smart, dorky bag over her head girl)

 

And a kiss! I expect that after that kiss (should be the beginning of Ep 15) we will all be flooding this thread with screencaps, gifs and screams of joy. Hahahaha.
