She was Pretty
This is a cute drama that is best to be described as childhood friends who were once in love, meet again and fall in love all over again. This series has 16 episodes that all run about an hour a piece which is pretty common for dramas. When Sung Joon (Park Soe Joon) was younger he was overweight and not the best looking guy in school, while on the other hand Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum) his best friend was pretty and popular. Unfortunately Sung Joon needed to move to the United States because of his father they promised to stay friends forever.
Fast forward 15 years later, they’ve both grown up and the roles switched. The once beautiful Hye Jin has turned into an unkept woman do to her lack of keeping up with makeup and fashion and letting her hair go back to it’s natural curls, Sung Joon on the other had turned into this hot guy. They go to meet and Hye Jin sees him for the first time and he walks right by her so she convinces her best friend Ha Ri (Koh Joon Hee) to meet up with Sung Joon and pretend to be her.
Throughout the drama Sung Joon keeps meeting up with Ha Ri thinking that she’s his childhood friend, while Hye Jin work under him at the Most magazine but her personality and mannerisms keep reminding him of his childhood friend. Needless to say there is a love triangle that forms once Ha Ri starts falling in love with Sung Joon even though she knows that he is actually in love with Hye Jin.
This drama was really well written, though I feel like they stressed the fact that Hye Jin was really pretty in her childhood and lost it a little too much. Even with the wild hair and redness on her face Hwang Jung Eum still made a very pretty woman, and I don’t think that anyone would call her ugly… Well I guess if you’re extremely shallow you might.
This drama won me over very quickly and I’m glad that I took the time to watch it, after I had been seeing it pop up on my recommendations for a while.
