One day in early June, I was going about the usual motions of editorial work, combing YouTube channels for new releases. Chancing upon this sepia-tinted MV for a twinkly, sweet OST, I was enchanted by the tale it told of a pair of high school friends-turned-lovers. A chain of searches led me to Seventeen, an indie production by Playlist Studio, the team behind hit web drama Love Playlist.
The series was broadcast online through Naver TV and the studios official YouTube channel earlier this spring. In a push to cater to international viewers, the episodes were released weekly, with subtitles in nine languages, over the last month. With eight episodes ranging between five to eight minutes each, the show stays true to the web drama format which provides entertainment in bite-size pieces.
