she was pretty kdramaSummary: Kim Hye Jin was happy to hear from her old friend Ji Sung Joon. Remembering him as the chubby boy from school, she was surprised to see him as a handsome, successful man. Ji Sung Joon on the other hand remembered her as the pretty girl and thought she would even look prettier in the present. Unfortunately it wasn’t the case.

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 16
Stars: Hwang Jung Eum as Kim Hye Jin
Park Seo Joon as Ji Sung Joon
Go Joon Hee as Min Ha Ri
Choi Shi Won as Kim Shin Hyuk

Likes: I was glad to see Hwang Jung Eum and Park Seo Joon as a couple in this drama. Though these 2 were kind of siblings in Kill Me, Heal Me, the guy’s interest on her made me wish to see them together in another drama. It seemed my wish had been heard. There was obviously a good chemistry between the leads though Park Seo Joon appears to be much younger than Hwang Jung Eum. The bubbly character of Kim Hye Jin suited to that cold personality of Ji Sung Joon which made it comfortable to watch.

Si Won oh Si Won! It’s great to see another idol in a drama. Si Won delivered pretty well. His transformation from the scruffy look reporter to the very handsome author TEN was definitely MOST (magazine)-like! His looks, acting, command in the English language, I’m pretty sure I’ll be seeing him more in the future. Furthermore, his character in this drama had been made the “big lose”. Such a waste Si Won got dumped! Something like that… The one that got away but not to worry he’ll have his own drama next time :).

Hug and kissing scene on the hospital bed was a heart-stopping one.

Kim Hye Jin’s look transformation was worth the wait. It took it 8 episodes to finally see her pretty but she turned really pretty and more likeable.

It was cute to mention Super Junior while focusing the camera on Si Won’s face.

The lady boss got to be the funniest character in this drama. Her outfits were outrageous so as her Italian accent. It was always very entertaining to watch her.

The ending was cliche so as the whole drama actually but there’s something about cliches that I like. No surprises. I got the ending that I like… wedding scene and an elaborate epilogue that was even showing a beautiful offspring.

Dislikes: It was hard to watch the 2 main leads unlikeable characters in the beginning. Kim Hye Jin was just too loud and Ji Sung Joon was such an ass.

I like Park Seo Joon but he’s no Ji Sung. He was a bit lacking when it comes to acting.

In one of the scenes, Hari was doing yoga with too much makeup. Hm…

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)

This drama made it to top 10 in 2015. Watch video…
