“30 But 17” Achieves New Personal Best + Advances Closer To Double-Digit Ratings

SBS’s “30 but 17” may surpass the 10 percent mark at this rate!

The drama hit a new personal best in viewership ratings yet again during its July 31 broadcast. Nielsen Korea measured average viewership of 7.3 percent and 9.0 percent for “30 but 17,” making it first in its time slot once again. It was also first among those in the targeted age group of 20-49, with ratings of 3.9 percent and 5.0 percent.

Since its premiere last week, the drama has seen higher ratings every consecutive broadcast. With less and less weekday dramas reaching even 10 percent in viewership ratings, many are wondering if “30 but 17” will achieve ratings in double digits.

KBS2’s “Are You Human, Too” saw ratings of 5.2 percent and 6.0 percent while MBC’s “Risky Romance” recorded 2.9 percent and 3.4 percent.


“30 but 17” is about a woman who wakes up from a coma years 13 later, and a man who is traumatized by the very accident that caused the woman to become comatose.

In the July 31 broadcast, Gong Woo Jin (Yang Se Jong) worried yet still felt uncomfortable around Woo Seo Ri (Shin Hye Sun), who hated the idea of returning to the hospital and set out to find a part-time job. She came face-to-face with the harsh reality that her body is no longer the same, as she made countless mistakes during a violin performance, and that she didn’t even complete high school. While Gong Woo Jin was still prickly, Yoo Chan (Ahn Hyo Seop) proved to be considerably sweeter and comforting to Woo Seo Ri.
