[Drama 2018] Thirty But Seventeen, 서른이지만열일곱입니다

Recommended Posts

Hmmm for some reason, I feel like the Uncle died. And when SR tells HT that she met her uncle, it really means she visited his grave? That would also explain why we see that brief scene of SR's auntie's Mum telling SR to blame her instead, that she was the one who told aunt to leave SR despite her unconscious status. 

 

@gster3 Yup, can someone sneak into the editing room of 3017 at SBS and make that beach scene be part of their date as a couple??

I'm glad I'm not the only one who really really wished they didnt cut the series short. Why not just 1 more episode? 17 is better than 16 to give a satisfactory ending too :tears: 

Although my only consolation will be the BEST and highest ratings for the whole series, at least let the drama end on a high tonight. Since SBS's concern is clearly poor ratings during Chuseok next wk. Then at least the 3017 team can fulfill their promise of visiting the fire brigade to deliver drinks and we can see more interaction!!

I dont think I'm ready to watch SHS with Lee jong suk just yet :unsure:

@dftio I did think that her uncle passed away, too. I just finished watching the subs, and the way they have rushed things showed that this needs the 20 eps that they originally allotted. 

I just checked out who that Lee Jong Suk is, the 'W' dude, right? 

I won't ever be ready to see SHS with anyone else other than YSJ, darn it! :tears::( 

Ugh, I'm trying not to feel disappointed with it all, but I am. :vicx:

Finally watched the episode even it’s 2 am here in my zone. As usual the episode give me another roller coaster ride from giddiness to sadness. I just broke down on Jeniffer scene, it must be painful losing all the people you value most, the only consolation price is that she found a new family, I can imagine that she will be like a granny to WJ and SR children hehehe. 

For me I’m glad that Chan confessed his feelings, that is the way his character is “don’t think, feel” still an innocent boy who will reach his goal no matter what and for sure he heals fast like super Sian he wil think back that he has no regrets. I feel that somehow he is the most mature of them all. Taking care of the people he love, he also feels that SR will be a member of the family in the future; he really value his family. I’m glad that HT respected WJ by calling him first regarding SR business. I also feel that the truck driver paid his sins already by taking care of SR’s hospital bill, even he went to the police the case is too long already. 

I’m curious for the finale tonight why the uncle got divorce and in preview is just misleading. Anyway I feel that’s I still can’t let go of my 30but17 I will miss them soooo much. What shall I do with my Monday’s? This separation anxiety is just sinking in....:tears:

finish todays episode. so sad but also nice seeing Jeniffer finally letting her bent up feelings out and telling her story. I would have loved seeing the OTP having a normal date, but happy seeing WJ being there for SR as she figure out the last puzzle. I hope the last episode is 30 min about uncle and aunt, and the last 30 min is OTP moment. I don´t trust preview especially when it is for the final episode. they know how to hold the real deal close to their chest ;) hope it is a warm final for us!

I'm not ready to watch SHS on Praise of Death either.....but that's not because I don't want to see her with Lee Jong Suk (I am willing to watch him in nearly anything because is an excellent lead who makes his female lead shine).  The thing that concerns me is the subject matter of Praise of Death because it is a true biographical historical subject where....

Spoiler

the couple commits suicide together.

 

That is something that bothers me.  I do not encourage or condone such.  I believe that a good drama should tell a good tale and I know that not everything in life is uplifting.  However, some subjects have to be handled with great care, and this is one of those.

 

.....but back on the subject of today's episode: 

I loved SR's side of the story, and that it received proper attention.

I loved Chan's confession; it was just right.

And Jennifer broke my heart.

I also felt compassion for the truck driver who spent years trying to atone.

 

All in all, a really good watch!

That preview looks more angsty than all 15 episodes before combined! We definitely need subtitles to understand it more.

Here's translated from Chinese subs:

 

Lady: I am the one who ask him/her to throw it away. If you want to put any blame, blame it on me.

WJ: She's always worrying about her uncle...

SR: Oh, I met my uncle already.

HT: I thought after you wake up, you will surely stay by my side.

Kang: What was ordered at the jewelry store? Could it be....?

Colleague: It's from Rin Kim Director.

Computer screen: Come to Berlin and start over. Don't wish for your talent to be wasted just like that.

Colleague (?): What are you conflicting about? You were planning to go to Berlin for study anyway?

Chan: What?

SR's letter: To WJ, forgive me for only writing to you like this.

 

And then there is the announcement that tonight is the last episode.

 

I have a deadline to meet, so can't write much about my feeling on last night's episode. But really, this for me is the best written childhood first love reconnection story. Love last night's episode! I'm going to check out more of this writer's work. And YSJ is just :wub: portraying GWJ.

I wish someone could put the confession at bridge scene together in a non-stop clip so we can have a continuous flow of the feels without the cut of the episode. Don't know how to video edit, otherwise I'll do it myself.

I didn't expect or foresee I would actually feel this way at first BUT I AM NOT READY YET TOO.

 

Not ready to see SR with anyone else beside WJ. Not ready to let go of our adorable Crescendo Couple just yet.

Hola Friends. My usual late to the party Mondays.;)

 

Too many emotions, too much to say. This clip is supposed to be funny with their Korean version of lisping. Closest you'll come to hearing a TH sound in Korean. :tounge_xd:

Noooooo.. your confirmation from the preview that its the last ep just crushed my 0.000001% hope that they may just extend it by 1 ep. :bawling:

 

@thistle oh wow I didnt realise her short drama special was about such a heavy topic. Now I really don't wanna watch it. Esp since I am already sad enough from separation anxiety. :tears:

So it does seem she's leaving from the preview. Hmmm, what could be the reason behind that I wonder? WJ has been very supportive and I guess he's willing to leave with her. I hope it's like one of you said, that the first half would be about solving the uncle story and the second will revolve around them but I won't have high hopes because even at this point, it's been draggy. I'm waiting for them to surprise me however.

Yes, I agree with you on LJS and also Praise of Death. Tragedies like that... not so much my thing. :( (But...LJS!) I don't think it's coming on immediately, though. I heard that he said in a recent fan meeting that they decided to add a couple more episodes (which they haven't filmed yet because SHS is still doing 30 But 17). We'll see what happens. 

 

Speaking of LJS (sorry), Chan's character is a bit like Park Soo Ha from I Hear Your Voice. Only...inverted. Because he lives in reality, in which you actually don't usually end up with your crush who is 11 years older than you. But yes, his confession was just right. And he was sad. And he also grew up. 

 

Jennifer, though...she is such a weird, quirky character, but her emotional moments really hit home. I will definitely watch Ye Ji Won in something else!

She leaves to pursue her music dreams.

He give chase but let her go.

Time jump and she's back to him at the beach scene for a happy ending.

Im predicting this scenario BUT please prove me wrong.

I hate time jump.

 

I just wish he could get a air ticket and they stay together even when she has to return from her intermission.

I don't want Sori to leave! In any case why can't Woo-jin go with her? I really hope it's a misleading preview, this drama has been great I don't want this cliché to ruin what could be a smooth journey from start to finish

 

I love Yang Sejong so much I want to watch anything from him!

I hope the preview is just a trick... 

I hope they will give us a beautiful ending for these beautiful persons.. 

I can't concentrate anymore... I can't wait for tonight!

Taking a break from work and a quick peek here. Yes, I am of the same mind too, I don't wish for time jump. Even if it is needed, not with a goodbye letter please. Just discuss it openly and decide together, not one-sided. Don't be cruel to our Mr.Gong please, writer-nim...

 

I really don't know what to expect. We know that preview 99% of the time is misleading to entice viewers to continue watching. I'd like to say I have faith in the writer, esp.seeing how the writing has been great since ep.1, but I've also encountered train-wreck in the last few minutes of the final episode. So... will just clear up my mind and watch tonight's final episode without expectation. If all is well, this will make it into my hall-of-fame dramas, but otherwise, I will just keep until ep.14 and pretend that is the finale, and scratch ep.15+16 altogether.

Whew, what an episode yet again! I screamed, laughed, and cried so much all in the span of one hour. This show is definitely on the top of my list in terms of how it pulled me in and how invested I am in its characters.

 

@Lj It was an absolute rollercoaster ride of an episode for me too. and ugh, them walking home was too cute!!!! (flashback to park bogum in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds when he discovered her name, anyone?) 

 

Random fave moments:

  • Chan’s confession with a twist and then folding his feelings and leaving those gloves *cries* (plus perfect OST for him)
  • Jennifer’s confrontation with the truck driver!! had me crying buckets
  • Quiet moment with Woojin consoling Jennifer with the same words of wisdom she shared with him in the beginning
  • Matching keychain gift! Never thought that Seori could’ve been holding another keychain that she had made just for him. Majorly cute.
  • @dftio the “hey, it’s my girlfriend” had me kyaaa~ing to a whole other level. And I feel like now he’s just drinking from her water bottles on purpose. Like he won’t even get one of his own if she has one haha.
  • Um, the kiss? how can i not include it. It was so tearful and heartfelt and perfect.
  • Okay, this is a moment from last week that i suddenly remembered, but the short flashback to how WJ was hiding his pain, even throwing up, and then how when he was going down stairs for the hot chocolate you could tell with eyes that he was hiding something? amazing acting omg.
  • Chan got his hot choco this week!!
     

Hahaahaha, yes, @Ni Wen let’s all come out of hiding and have a party before it’s all over!!

 

I wonder if the uncle died or if he is imprisoned? I think all of us are having a hard time trying to think of a scenario that would justify his absence.

 

@r047 “WHATTTT” is the only reaction i can have to that preview. If this whole episode was like a fun rollercoaster, the preview was like the whiplash I didn’t want to have!!! I almost wish i didn’t see the preview T___T I hope with everyone that it was somehow misleading…

I'm going to do the same! It is hall-of-fame worthy; I hope it makes it through. Keeping an open mind and will appreciate what we get. 

 

Can we all sneak into (or storm into) the writing/editing room together? Seori is only allowed to go to Germany to play ONE duet performance with Taerin. And preferably on a honeymoon WITH her husband WJ. Not on her own and not suddenly and no sad letters allowed!!! The only letters allowed are ones with a “turn this note over” that turn out to be a proposal or something. *grumps* Please, i love this show so much, i'm trusting the ending will match the rest of its themes and pacing, and be just as enjoyable.
