#FirstImpression: Thirty but Seventeen (서른이지만 열일곱입니다) (2018)

Snippet of the drama (From Viki)
A life can change in an instant.

Woo Seo Ri (Shin Hye Sun) was a 17-year-old violin prodigy who is getting ready to study abroad in Germany. But a serious car accident leaves her in a coma.

Gong Woo Jin (Yang Se Jong), who caused the accident, is traumatized and plagued by the guilt of what he has done. Thirteen years later, he works as a set designer but is emotionally cut off from everyone around him.

When Seo Ri wakes up unexpectedly from her coma 13 years later, she is in the body of a 30-year-old woman but is mentally still only 17. Can Woo Jin help her adjust to her new world and learn to live and love again?

My first impression
Firstly, let me admit that I'm a huge fan of Yang Se Jong (양세종). Dude has been stealing my heart ever since Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim (낭만닥터 김사부) so I know I'm gonna be so biased! Also, I know I'm gonna be such a smitten fan girl. Dah taraf-taraf Kang Ha Neul dah dia ni in my heart, so that speaks volume. lol!

Now that we got that covered, I can proceed with my actual impression. I think I like this drama so much so that I think I'm going to binge watch it again once it ended provided if it stays good until the end. I have only watched 4 episodes right now (or 8 episodes of 30 minutes, whichever you call it) and I really really really liked those 4 episodes.

I particularly liked the interactions between all the main characters. I especially loved seeing the relationship between Gong Woo Jin and his nephew, Yoo Chan. So much love! So much cuteness! Another interaction that I really dig was between Woo Seo Ri and Yoo Chan. So cute! So innocent! And of course, any interactions that involved Jennifer! Jennifer is my crack!

The first 4 episodes were heartbreaking and sad at some points but funny and hilarious at most parts. I don't usually like funny stuff but I liked the humor in this show. Think it was my kind of humor. Truly had a time of my life giggling over the jokes and humor in this show. However, I also felt sad and like I want to cry at some points. Especially after seeing Yang Se Jong crying. Dude was so good at crying!  However, he also made me smile like a crazy person after seeing his smile. His smile is like sunshine, I kid you not!

I think I should stop fangirling about Yang Se Jong because I can talk non-stop about him and things that make me a fan of him. Otherwise, people will think that I'm such a stupid fangirl -__-

Putting aside Yang Se Jong, I'm truly surprised with Shin Hye Sun's performance. She really exuded that innocent and teenager vibe. She gave me this "Awwwww, why you're so pure and innocent like this?" kind of feeling, considering her age in the show is 30 years old. I honestly was not a fan of her but wow, she made me a fan of her in just 4 episodes. Or, maybe I just love her as Woo Seo Ri?

And, I'm so happy to see Ye Ji Won (예지원) or known as Jennifer, the housekeeper in this show. She's fantastic in comedic acting and eccentric roles so I expect nothing less than her as Jennifer. I hope she's not gonna be just a comedic relief in this show. Hopefully, there'll be in-depth in her character. #pleaseshowdontdisappointme

At this point, you can definitely see me keep watching this show. However, I'm not sure if I'm going to live watch it or binge watch it. I have yet to decide. A part of my heart wants to live watch it so that I can get my weekly dose of Yang Se Jong and humor. However, a part of my heart want to binge watch it so that I don't have to wait for the next episodes. Ughhhh, decision, decision.

  4. Yang Se jeong! <3
    Belum tengok 30 but 17 lagi but it's definitely in my kdrama waiting list.

    Currently tengah layan Mr. Sunshine sebab rating dia tinggi gila kat Korea (as expected from the writer of DOTS and Goblin).

    Banyak sangat kdramas pening nak decide which one to watch. I usually decide based on rating first, then only based on my fav actors.

    1. As of now, I think you should watch it. Very entertaining and cute! :D Tapi tak tahulah kalau lepas ni meleret ke apa ke. Hahaha.

      I see. I know Mr. Sunshine punya rating tinggi gila kat Korea tapi sampai sekarang tak tengok satu episode pun lagi. I think the theme is too heavy for me now. Now that you have mentioned DOTS and Goblin, sebenarnya sampai sekarang tak pernah tengok satu episode of DOTS and Goblin pun sampai sekarang.

      Such an interesting way to decided. For me, rating tak penting sangat. Janji ada my fav actors or theme dia macam kena dengan jiwa at that time, I on je.

    1. Kita rasa Let's Eat 3 macam tak best. Kita tengok laju-laju je. Tapi tak tahulah untuk kak Siti macam mana.

      Junho is very cute in Wok of Love! One of the reasons why I forced myself to finish Wok of Love. Kalau tak, memang nak drop dah cerita tu. T^T
