Still 17

Assalamualaikum and hey ! So, I recently finished watching another k-drama and it was an awesome drama ! *doublethumbsup. I admit that this drama had nothing to do with law nor crime nor medical but it still manage to won my heart !

Title : Still 17 / Thirty but Seventeen / Seoreunijiman Yeolilgobibmida /
Episodes : 32 ( 35 minutes each )
Network : SBS
Plot :

Gong Woo Jin is a 30 years old who works as a set designer. Due to painful experiences, he refuse to have connection to people. Woo Seo Ri is a violinist who woke up from a coma after an accident 13 years ago. In her mind, she is still 17 years old girl but in reality, she is 30. To find her aunt and uncle, the two of them cross path.

I actually had found one book that had similar story plot to this drama, but I had never read that book. And I'm not sure if it's printed book. Well, let's get to the real deal.


First, I wanna say that this drama is very very cute. Like, you had a crush on someone but years later you found out that someone also had a crush on you. But honey, this story are not as simple as that. Both of the main characters had to deal with their own discomfort. For Woo Seo Ri, I felt really sorry for her. In her mind, she only slept for a day as she remember when she got into the accident but in reality she already slept for 13 years and she is 30 years old. It was very sad every time she imagined what would happen if she didn't involve in the accident. Every time she did, I would definitely think, 'what if it happens to me ?'. 

Second, Gong Woo Jin. He had been stuck in his 17 years old as he couldn't forget what had happen to him. I don't want to spoil the fun and told you but yes, it shad something to do with Seo Ri's accident. He started to act cold to people, afraid that he will interfere in someone's life again. He always went abroad, away from people and when he came back, he never think of what others think of him, even if he was accused as a pervert. But when he finally realized that he liked Seo Ri, and opened up to her, it was so cute. He was like high school boy in love. 

I definitely love the plot line and how it change from where they were 17 and when they are 30. In my opinion, there was nothing left out and the ending is definitely the best. I think this drama is way better and sweeter than other dramas that I had watch. This drama had made into my favorite list. Besides all of the sweetness, there was also sense of humor in this drama. Especially with the appearance of Chan's (woojin's nephew) close friends. One being that smart-ass but too old looking and another being that handsome and dumb. It was a very good combination. They got especially funny when they tried to be friendly with Woo Jin. And not to forget, Jennifer, she is another one of a kind that make this drama more interesting than it already is.

I love how this story unravel the mystery during the 13 years of Woo Seo Ri being unconscious. Where her uncle and aunt gone, how the house was sold to another person and mostly, who paid for her hospital bill. A little bit plot twist over here, as I thought it would be Seo Ri's uncle, but it was not him. The one who paid for the hospital bill was someone that had never cross my mind. Nevertheless, the drama is great, not too heavy and not too light. It is just fine.

Like always, I will leave with my favorite quote from this drama,

"No matter how painful a moment may be, it'll all pass. its up to you whether to ignore it or leave it as a regret, or whether you make it into a memory you want to look back on." - Jennifer

"They say, 'when one door to happiness close, another door to happiness opens up for you. but many of us are only focuses on the closed door and doesn't even realize that another door has opened up. perhaps, the other door to happiness might not be something grand or special. perhaps, the small and trivial things that look insignificant are the other doors to happiness. if you don't flop down in front of a closed door, before its too late, if you take a look at the other door to happiness, if you muster up the courage and walk towards it,then perhaps, you could find happiness that you don't even realized exist." - Gong Woo Jin
