Where to Watch The World of My 17
Cast & Credits
WEBTOON VS WEBDRAMAJust completed this WebDrama so dropping some of my thoughts here. FYI, this story is based on a popular Webtoon by MorangJi - Odd Girl Out. I really love the Webtoon and have been reading it for 3 years already. So I do have some high expectations about this adaptation. For me - if you read the Webtoon beforehand and expecting it to be as good as the original - please don't because WebDrama adaptation will get some adjustments to fit in the short period of the broadcasting. WebDrama is a simple version hence there are many important plots didn't get featured so please be considerate :)
This webdrama is super cute. That's a bonus point for me. Regarding the actress , I shall say that I do have some problems to imagine Nari as a an ugly duckling because in my eyes - SHE'S THE PRETTIEST AMONG THEM. If you read the original Webtoon you'll understand why Nari looks so plain among her friends. So when there was a scene when Nari's boyfriend (sorry I forgot to his name ?) said this line : "ARE YOU KIDDING ME ??? HOW ON EARTH 2 UGLY PEOPLE LIKE US CAN BE TOGETHER ? "
And I was like.....whoa you guys are ugly ? Wait until you see me :p
And the part when Nari was treated as a laughing stock in her class because they said Nari is ugly - like gosh I can't imagine her as ugly cause she's the prettiest in her class (well hello ! We're talking about Arin from Oh My Girl. If you say that she's ugly - I don't know what am I ?
But yeah I do understand that it's a part of the storyline. In fact , Nari in the original Webtoon is actually quite decent but because her 3 others friends are way prettier than her making she looks like she's the "ugly duckling" in her group.
About their acting - because all of them are still quite new in acting so it's understandable but my personal favorite would be Yoona and Nari because there were many scenes where they needed to be sad , mad and happy. The part when Yoona sing for Nari - SPLENDID ! :p
But the ending - I wish it could be more impactful and could focuses on the four of them instead of Soobin's crisis and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ THE ORIGINAL WEBTOON cause the original story is SPLENDID !!!!! More laughing , crying and emotional moments.
Thank you for reading this and sorry if I wrote something that may sounds offensive :)
I have to be honest the acting was probably some of the worst I've ever seen in a kdrama.
You can tell the majority of them are complete rookies and crying scenes especially were hard to watch.
But the the plot is fairly lighthearted so the poor cast doesn't take too much away from it, just the occasional cringe scenes or awkward dialogues. The actresses playing Nari and Yuna show potential so I hope they're able to grow in future works, Mi Rae was passable, Sun Ji was very grating and hard to watch at times, Woo Kyung fell flat and forced at times, Jinhyuk was the only person I'd consider a good actor. and lastly Soobin was surprisingly well developed for a side character.
If you can overlook the inexperienced cast then I would recommend this drama. It's refreshing to see a story about female friendship in a high-school setting. The drama is fun and very binge-able. 12 short episodes left a lot of characters underdeveloped so I'd be interested in watching a season 2.
