The highest viewership ratings of Thirty But Seventeen so far is credited to Episodes 15 and 16 in which Woo Seo Ri (Shin Hye Sun) and Gong Woo Jin (Yang Se Jong) made viewers' hearts flutter in several scenes. The two opened up about their pasts without realizing that they are connected. Before that, Seo Ri and Woo Jin also shared some spicy noodles and had a great train ride going to a workshop.

The problem is Yoo Chan's (Ahn Hyo Seop) mother, Gong Hyun Jung (Lee Ah Hyun), is coming home. The two rushed back home to warn Seo Ri about Woo Jin's sister. Unfortunately, they were late. She is already at their doorstep, taking to Seo Ri. Will she allow Seo Ri to stay in the house?
Meanwhile, the mysterious yellow shoes-wearing lady finally revealed her face. It turned out that she has been watching the Woo Jin's house from afar because of Hwang Mi Jung, a.k.a. Jennifer (Ye Ji-won). It looks like the Woo Jin's housemaid is also hiding a secret. Jennifer's backstory is expected to be revealed in the upcoming Thirty But Seventeen Episodes 17 and 18 next week.
