4 Heartfelt And Memorable Subtitles From “Moments Of 18”
JTBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Moments of 18” is moving people’s hearts more and more each episode!
“Moments of 18” is currently receiving much love from the public with scenes that feature warm and calming vibes as well as composed yet moving lines. In addition, the detailed portrayals of characters from actors including Ong Seong Wu, Kim Hyang Gi, Shin Seung Ho, and more have made viewers absolutely in love with the drama.
The subtitles that are revealed at the beginning of each episode are also gathering public attention. With that being said, here are four subtitles from “Moments of 18” that remain memorable in viewers’ minds.
Episode 1. “Boy Without a Name, Choi Joon Woo”
The subtitle of the first episode was “Boy without a name, Choi Joon Woo.” While the sentence showed juxtaposition, it was the perfect phrase to describe the character Choi Joon Woo, played by Ong Seong Wu. Students at the school he newly transferred to call him “the transfer,” and teachers who saw the name tag on his hand-me-down uniforms call him Lee Tae Ho. Jimin (Heo Young Ji), the female colleague at a convenience store where he works part-time, calls him Park Young Bae.
However, Ong Seong Wu seems like he could not care less. Even when he is accused of something he did not do, he acts as if he does not care. Watching him like this, Yoo Soo Bin (Kim Hyang Gi) gives him a name tag that has his name written on it as a gift and says, “Doesn’t that make you angry? Living without being noticed.” At the moment, the look in Ong Seong Wu’s eyes changes, and Choi Joon Woo’s journey to getting back his confidence begins as he goes through changes in his life through Yoo Soo Bin.
Episode 3. “It Always Rains On Upsetting Day”
At the end of the episode, Ong Seong Wu and Kim Hyang Gi encounter one another in the pouring rain as they were both taking a walk to forget about what had made them upset. Only by looking at each other, they are able to understand each other’s pain. This scene particularly raised anticipation as to how the relationship between the two, who support and comfort each other like an umbrella on a rainy day, will change in the future.
Episode. 11 “The Feelings I Got To Know Through You”
After confirming their feelings for each other in the previous episode, episode 11 features Ong Seong Wu and Kim Hyang Gi in love and on dates. As their relationship was finally made official, the two cannot help but to always check how they look before going on dates and ask questions to learn more about each other. This truly made viewers think about their first time being in love.
Viewers could also see some changes in the personalities of the two, especially in Ong Seong Wu, as he becomes more honest and brave about expressing his feelings.
Episode 12. “18-year-olds Who Are More Like Adults Than Adults”
In this episode, Kim Hyang Gi expresses her honest thoughts about adults to her father. She points out that adults are inconsistent with what they want from their children. Kim Hyang Gi backs up her argument by saying that adults sometimes say children don’t understand anything because they are young and should just study, but in other times, they expect children to grow up and understand.
Just like this, “Moments of 18” does not neglect to tell stories from the perspectives of the younger generation as they look at rather immature and unstable sides of adults. Writer Yoon Kyung Ah had also stated before, “I’ve once described this drama as a drama with inexperienced students ‘quietly’ scolding adults in their own way.” Anticipation is high as how parents who unknowingly hurt their children by acting immature, asking for perfection, and being greedy, will change throughout the drama.
With only two episodes left until the end, the upcoming episode of “Moments of 18” will air on September 9 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
