Web Drama Seventeen Explores Youth Romance and its Possibilities

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.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "My Secret Romance" Episode 3

So even though we saw Yoo-mi fantasizing about meeting Jin-wook by chance again last episode, this time, Yoo-mi is doing everything she can to avoid the reality of the situation. Which makes sense. Let's recall that, three years ago, Jin-wook was kind of a jerk, and that they were both just a tad drunk. So it's easy to empathize with Yoo-mi viewing Jin-wook's dictatorial demands here as being part and parcel of a mean personality rather than an overbearing effort on his part to be cute.

And indeed, it would be a little remiss for us to completely ignore the power imbalance here. Jin-wook is Yoo-mi's boss, and his attempt to jump start a relationship with her here is textbook sexual harassment. For all that, it's hard to hate Jin-wook that much when we can see from his perspective that Yoo-mi was his one moment of genuine empathy. Unless we count the cat, who sadly does not feature here. I was kind of hoping the cat would be a regular character.
