Something About 30 Summary
Age is just a number!
At the age of 31, up-and-coming cartoonist Jiwon can’t seem to get a date.
Then she runs into her childhood crush at work — only he doesn’t seem to recognize her!
Will she be able to find love while juggling work, life, and her friendships? Born in ’85, this is her story.Manta.net
There’s four girls in “Something About 30”, all with different relationships and issues.
Our main female lead runs into her first crush and they start something.
However, it turns out her first crush is a bit of an arsehole since he’s in a relationship yet meets our female MC. I totally understand having friends of different genders, but it’s clear he’s having other intentions.
I’m not sure I can accept cheating, especially since he’s so nonchalant about it. The female lead is also choosing to look the other way, being equally guilty if they break up.
We also have other three women, including some TV personality who sleeps with a younger man.
Eventually she starts dating him, but she also dates other men – clearly not settling for a college student.
One is a mother of multiple children and she says marriage hasn’t “saved” her. In other words, she’s saying the other women shouldn’t worry too much about dating and all that.
Our last 30-something is a naive woman, ignoring her boyfriend’s cheating. She knows he’s cheating on her, but she turns a blind eye pretending everything is fine.
Needless to say, the story has potential to be good, but I find myself feeling annoyed at the females. Their lives seem to revolve around the men in their lives.
From what I read, they keep regretting being mean to cheating @assholes or takes them back.
Final thoughts: I feel like this could be a good story but I just can’t get into it.
