I didn’t write much about summer 2018 SBS drama Thirty But Seventeen but I quietly watched it every week and thoroughly enjoyed the dramatic journey. It wasn’t eventful or groundbreaking yet had a calming comforting vibe that matched very well with male lead Yang Se Jong. For the same reason I didn’t like him in Temperature of Love for being so bland I thought he infused some edge to raise his aura to a more interesting level in Thirty But Seventeen. He also had fantastic chemistry with female lead Shin Hye Sun that he didn’t have with Seo Hyun Jin in Temperature so for now my opinion of Yang Se Jong has swung back to positive territory. He needs to take on edgier characters to sharpen his onscreen softness but as a still model he is awfully charming to behold in the November issue of Bazaar Korea.
