Korean Drama : She Was Pretty (Hangul: 그녀는 예뻤다)

WARNING: I know a lot of people LIKE this drama so much...but spare me for Pete's sake. Because I was not one of those people. If you adored this drama so much then you would rather not hear any negative comments, so I suggest you better stop reading because I might hurt your feeling.

She Was Pretty (Hangul: 그녀는 예뻤다; RR: Geunyeoneun Yeppeodda) is a 2015 South Korean television series starring Hwang Jung-eum, Park Seo-joon, Go Joon-hee, and Choi Siwon. Its a romantic comedy about two good friend who meet again after a long period of time. Kim Hye Jin (Hwang Jung-Eum) was very pretty when she was younger, contrary to what is she is now as adult. While Ji Sung-joon (Park Seo Joon) was an unattractive boy with low self-esteem, but grows up as a handsome and successful editor. When Sung Joon is back in Korea for work, he and Hye Jin decided to meet. When they are about to meet, Sung Joon didn't recognize Hye Jin, and the latter hide because of embarrassment. She then asked her best-friend Min Ha-ri (Go Joon He), a beautiful and stylish woman with good personality to pretend on her behalf. Which later became a problem because Ha RI is falling in-love with Sung Joon. Kim Shin Hyuk (Choi Siwon) on the other hand will be Hye Jin's direct supervisor at work, and they will developed a close relationship. Set in the backdrop of a fashion magazine's publishing office THE MOST.

Spoiler Alert! Read at your own risk!!!

  • Kim Poong Ho (Ahn Se Ha) He is the company chairman’s son but keeps it a secret from his coworkers until towards the end of the drama.

  • Kim Shin Hyuk (Choi Siwon) is TEN. The elusive famous writer THE MOST has been trying to have an interview with.

MY RATING : 5/10

REVIEW: I'm a DIE-HARD SIWONEST so obviously my main reason of watching this drama is because of him. On its first episodes I'm loving it because Siwon's character was perfect for him. He and Hwang Jung-eum showed a good chemistry together. I was hoping that maybe there could be a twist about the story but there isn't. When Park Seo-joon is entered the picture I start getting pissed. His a good actor no doubt about that, but his role for this drama isn't fitting (based on my personal opinion). He and Hwang Jung-eum are better off as brother-sister relationship like the one they had in Kill Me, Kill Me, than boyfriend-girlfriend thing. Other thing that made me hate this drama because Siwon character was left out. He was suddenly out of the picture I was hoping, at least maybe the writer would make him and Ha Ri end up together, but it didn't happened. They didn't even gave him good end story. After he revealed his self as TEN, he was gone completely.

CONCLUSION: She Was Pretty didn't really work for me. I am not recommending this....(period) but if your a SIWON fan then you should watch this at-least.This was his perfect army sendoff and a gift to us SIWONEST.
