The next Korean drama you should be pinging on your radar is ‘She was Pretty’. It stars Hwang Jung Eum, Park Seo Joon, Choi Siwon and Go Joon Hee.
I for one am always in the mood for a good romantic comedy and ‘She Was Pretty’ is no exception! The drama tells the story of two old friends, Kim Hye Jin and Ji Sung Joon who reunite at the stylish office of ‘The Most’ magazine.
What’s the Story?
Hye Jin was a rich pretty girl whose family goes bankrupt and she becomes rather dowdy (but not really because she is still pretty as always in kdrama land)! Ji Sung Joon was a chubby boy and not very popular! But as fate would have it, he grows up to be a bit of a stud muffin to put it mildly.
When they meet again as adults, Sung Joon cannot recognise Hye Jin. She is so mortified at how she has ended up that she asks her attractive good friend Ha Ri to take her place.
You can see where this is going? To make matters even more crazy, when Hye Jin gets assigned to work for ‘The Most’ magazine, little does she know that Sung Joon is chief editor! You would think that would be perfect but due to Hye Jin’s inexperience and complete dorkiness at work, Sung Joon is a complete tyrant to her.
How will Sung Joon feel knowing that he’s actually been mistreating his one precious childhood friend?
What this space……Dun dun dun.
I really love this drama! If you haven’t put it on your watch list. You damn well should! It’s funny, touching and squee worthy!
The two leads have great chemistry. I’m going to have to look up their previous drama as I enjoy watching them both.
Siwon is pretty much my surprise highlight! He is suffering terribly from second lead man syndrome.I’ve seen him in Skip Beat (which I did enjoy). He was playing the ‘dashing’ serious type of guy. Although he did look the part, I’m glad he’s put his amazing facial expressions to good use in ‘She was Pretty’. I think he is made for comedy. His character is so funny and lovable.
I’m up to date with all episodes and dying to see the next ones! Are you watching ‘she was pretty’? If not what are you watching? I will take recommendations for anything fluffy!
