Lee Seung Yoo since high school has always been popular and has many fans.
He seems to be enjoying his popularity and is known very well to everyone, including the girls.

Until high school, Seo Ji Won dared to shoot Lee Seung Yoo, but was rejected!
Even though it turned out that Lee Seung Yoo didn’t mean to reject Seo Ji Won, you know, but Seo Ji Won felt that he had been rejected.
And that’s what makes the two drift apart until they meet again when they are approaching 30 years old.

Review How To Be Thirty
You could say that after Seo Ji Won and Lee Seung Yoo started to get close again because of the writer-editor relationship, each of them was already flirting with each other.
But they are backstreet because after all, they are colleagues.
At first, their relationship was very lovey-dovey, but they were not honest with each other!
It turns out that Lee Seung Yoo already has a girlfriend, and he immediately broke up with his girlfriend after he and Seo Ji Won officially started dating, but Lee Seung Yoo wasn’t honest with Seo Ji Won.
Seo Ji Won had guessed that Lee Seung Yoo already had a girlfriend because he saw the signs, but Seo Ji Won didn’t want to ask Lee Seung Yoo about this.
So, the relationship between the two of them had started with dishonesty and each kept a secret so that in the end they both became suspicious of each other.
A relationship that begins with dishonesty like this is very unhealthy, girls, it’s been proven that it was only recently that the two of them had often fought because of misunderstandings and conflicts related to lies.
Then how can they get through this conflict?
Hmm, if you explain everything here, it will be a spoiler!
So you can watch this drama Not Yet 30 directly, it’s only 15 episodes and each episode is less than 30 minutes.
Btw, have you experienced the same thing as Seo Ji Won or not, girls?
