‘Still 17’ tells the story of a 17-year-old teenager who falls into a coma and wakes up when she is 30 years old. The story begins when teenage Woo Seo-ri (played by Park Shi-eun) has a tragic accident that puts her in a coma. Seo-ri was in a coma for years until 13 years later. She woke up to find herself 30 years old.
Since then, adult Seo-ri (played by Shin Hye-sun) has experienced an identity crisis. She is physically 30 years old, but his soul still feels like 17 years old. Seo-ri also struggles to restore her lost 13 years of memory and return to her old profession from the beginning as a violinist.
