She Was Pretty |K-Drama Review|

**SPOILER ALERT**

Ok, I finished it. I finally finished she was pretty after three days of binge watching. At first I was sure I wouldn’t like it as there were so many things that annoyed me but as I got further into the series, I completely fell in love with it.

She Was Pretty is a 2015 South Korean television series starring Hwang Jung-eum, Park Seo-joon, Go Joon-hee, and Choi Si-won. It’s a romantic comedy about two old school friends who meet up again in the present after many years of not seeing each other. When they were younger Kim Hye-jin (Hwang Jung-eum) was a popular, pretty girl from a rich family who befriended Ji Sung-joon (Park Seo-joon) who was unattractive, over weight and shy. Sung-Joon moves to America with his father leaving Hye-Jin behind. After this, her fathers company goes bankrupt causing her to experience hardships. She also lost her beauty too.

Sung-Joon returns many years later wanting to meet Hye-Jin but is unable to recognise her, he has grown to be a very attractive young man and she grew to get frizzy hair and a skin condition which causes her cheeks to be red constantly. Hye-Jin feels ashamed due to this so hides as she doesn’t want to ruin his perception of her. He asks her best friend Ha-Ri (Go Joon-hee) to stand in for her as she is tall, elegant and beautiful.

Things begin to get complicated for Hye-Jin as she gets an internship at The Most magazine and who does the deputy chief editor happen to be? None other than Sung-Joon! He openly mistreats and belittles her publicly not knowing who she really was. During the series Ha-ri continues to meet with Sung-Joon and begins to develop feelings for him. During Hye-Jins time in the workplace she finds a good friend in Shin-hyuk (Siwon) who falls in love with her.

The ending I would say was kind of unpredictable. I was expecting Ha-Ri and Sung-Joon to be together and Hye-Jin and Shin-Hyuk to be together as they were so well suited and Shin-Hyuk was so nice toward Hye-Jin from the very start. He tells her shes pretty and looks after her, I really shipped this couple. As time goes on, Sung-Joon beings to develop feelings for Hye-Jin without knowing who she is and vice versa. He also finds out that Ha-Ri had been lying to him all the time and realises that the real Hye-Jin was in fact the Hye-Jin he was so cruel to at work.

At the start of the series, I really disliked Sung-Joon as he was so mean but as she showed his softer side to Hye-Jin I really started to like his character and wanted them to be together.

A lot takes place in the last few episodes of this drama. Shin-Hyuk confesses to Hye-Jin but she doesnt believe him. He also turns out to be the famous author Ten. You are led to believe that he is actually the company chairman’s son but that turns out to be Kim Poong-ho, another colleague in The Most magazine. Shin-Hyuk kept his identity a secret as he wanted to write but enjoy his life but gave up his identity to save the magazine.

Hye-Jin becomes an author and marries Sung-Joon (happy ending! YAY!) and Ha-Ri goes to college and gets a job at a hotel with her own skills as she led a comfortable life due to her rich father and wanted to see if she could get by on her own.

I absolutely loved this drama, like I said in my previous post about it (you can read it here), Hye-Jin was very annoying to begin with, she was screechy and never spoke properly but as time went on she mellowed out quite a bit and became a very likeable character.

My faveourite character was Shin-Hyuk as he was honest and lived for winding people up, I guess I can relate to him in a way! Most of his scenes were hilarious!!

I’d really recommend this drama if you’re looking for something funny and romantic. I absolutely loved it and am sad that it’s over.

I hope you enjoyed my review! Are there any dramas you’d recommend? Comment blow!

Why are People So Damn Unhelpful!!! #3

So this post is a little out of the ordinary for me, you could almost say it is a rant! So, I’ll start from the beginning.

Myself, my sister Emily (Emmimori) and my fiance were out for a day out in Ramsgate today, and we were having a walk around town. My fiance loves looking in furniture shops so e went and had a look in the Pilgrims Hospice charity shop as they had a big furniture section at the back. I walked in there with my phone and glasses in hand and had a look around. I found these gorgeous glasses and decided to buy them so I walked over to the checkout with them and was served by an old woman who seemed quite nice.

We left the shop as they were closing soon and walked on for about 10 minutes. I went to put my sunglasses back on and it was then that I realised I didn’t have them. Were had I put them?? The case was big enough, how could I lose it!? I double checked my handbag and nothing! If it were any other pair of sunglasses I wouldn’t have minded but they were my prescription pair and cost me £90 so losing them was the last thing I wanted! I traced my steps back and realised I could have left them in the Pilgrims Hospice Charity shop so we ran back as they had already closed in hopes someone was still there.

My fiance got there first and was knocking on the glass, the woman behind the checkout was clearly ignoring him so I banged slightly harder on the window to grab her attention and signed for her to come over. She unlocked the door and I explained my missing glasses situation. All she said to me was “you didn’t leave any glasses on the desk”… That wasn’t what I had asked, I asked if they were anywhere in the store! All I was hoping for was either for her to have a quick look for me or to let me have a look and that definitely seemed like too much to ask.

She closed and locked the door and we began to walk away. It was then that I realised I couldn’t find my phone in my pocket. Slightly freaking out, I tore my bag open and it wasn’t in there either!! I had absolutely no idea what to do! I had old photos with no backups, I was logged into accounts with my card details on them and I had no idea where it was! My glasses situation was soon forgotten about.

Emily was calling my phone as we were making our way back to the amusements as that was the only other place I had been to and I was close to tears at this point. After a few calls, a man had finally picked up! Emily spoke to him for a bit and he told her where he was… The Pilgrims Hospice Charity shop. He also said there was a pair of glasses with the phone.

I was fuming! we walked back the shop and the man was waiting patiently by the door for us, he said they were by the table where I picked up the glasses from. The woman hadn’t moved from her chair, she didn’t even come over to apologise for not actually helping! I was so mad. I was close to tears, stressing, I didn’t know what to do, and it all could have been avoided if she had just been a bit more helpful. Instead she didn’t care!

I guess what I’m trying to say is, if the situation ever arises, always help those in need. My situation today wasn’t exactly the worst, I don’t actually think I’d have ever found my stuff if I hadn’t found out I’d lost it till later as the shop had already closed! But if I had the help from the woman, it would have saved a lot of worry and stress.

That’s it, rant over!! I feel much better now 🙂

P.s I also got attacked by a seagull today. It flew into my head, grabbed my hair which was in a bum and tried to fly away with it.

#2 My Weekend Haul

So I didn’t post last week and I have a very good explanation as to why! I had been at my parents all week as it was my birthday and I completely forgot to bring my laptop with me to post!!

But don’t worry, I used that time away from my blog to brain storm and jot down some new ideas!

So anyways, back to the post. After going out on the weekend (You can read the post here), I had a mini shopping haul at Superdrug and Tesco which I thought I would share with you all!

I’ll start with skincare first as that is pretty much the majority of my haul. I’m obsessed with skincare, even more so now I’m getting older! When I was younger (16/17) I don’t even think I moisturised! Whilst browsing Superdrug, I came across their Vitamin E range, which I honestly never even knew existed. So I decided I’d get some of the collection and came away with Their moisture boost serum, nourishing eye cream, hydrating mist, leave on moisture mask and the  night cream. I’m so excited it all! I’ve tested a few of the bits and can safely say I’m in love with the hydrating mist.

Next up I saw that Garnier had some new moisturisers that were 1/3 off. There was a choice between honey, rose water and aloe vera. I absolutely love aloe vera so I decided to give it a whirl. What persuaded me to buy it was the fact that 96% of the ingredients are of natural origin with the last 4% being for preservation. I have tried this a few times and love it.

I don’t usually buy nail polish but decided I’d make a change and start so I can practice doing my nails more. I asked my Fiance to pick a colour and he decided on this lovely coral colour from Barry M. It’s from their Coconut Infusion line and, oh my God, there were so many pretty colours! I also got a base coat/top coat as mine dried up a while ago.

The Last product I got from Superdrug was medical tape. Need I explain more? who doesn’t have tape in their make up kits? 😛

From Tesco I brought the Aloe Body Gel. I got badly sunburnt on my birthday and needed something to soothe the stinging, burning, itching and peeling and decided to give this a go as it said it moisturises calms and repairs. I  brought the one at first and took it home and I loved it so much I went out the next day to get a bottle. It is honestly the best body moisturiser I’ve ever used!!

So that’s it guys!! I hope you’ve enjoyed my mini haul!

1# My Saturday In Pictures

Hey guys! So I know it’s almost the end of the week now but I really wanted to share what I got up to last Saturday with you, I even took pictures! It was my last week and we decided to go out to Canterbury for a mini shopping trip (post coming soon) and some lunch! Overall, it was a lovely day :).

IMG_20170527_151630

First up, we popped into Superdrug whilst we waited for the people we were having lunch with to turn up, and I treated myself to a few bits. I always feel so overwhelmed when in there as there is so much to look at and choose from, I never know where to start!!

IMG_20170527_152821

I just had to take a picture of the town, it was so hot and busy! We brought a box of ice creams and stood outside Superdrug chowing down!

We were planning on going to Wok & Go for lunch as I had absolutely fallen in love with the place and had nearly filled up my loyalty card but found it had closed! We decided on Pizza hut and I definitely made the most of the free salad bar. As you can see it’s just nachos, salsa and jalapenos. But it’s called a salad bar…so it’s salad, right? I’m also a big fan of pineapple on pizza (strange thing though, I like to eat the pineapple off first so it’s essentially just a ham pizza) so I got one to myself and tried to get arty when taking the pictures. You can probably see that I couldn’t wait to take pictures and had already dug in!

IMG_20170528_000958

Lastly, we went to see a rock band called Shameful Behaviour that my uncle was playing the bass in (far right). I went with my two sisters (Emmimori), my sisters partner and my fiance. It was such a great night and they played awesome songs!! I’d definitely see them again!

I hope you enjoyed this post! It’s a bit different to my normal kind but I wanted to show you what I get up to 🙂

7 Day Post Challenge

All these challenges are coming about quite often now and I absolutely love doing them. I love doing them so much that I decided to create my own(forgive me if this idea has already been done)!

I sat for a while trying to figure out what I could do that would actually be a challenge for me and decided that I could do a post a day for seven days, as you should all know that I’m terrible at posting regularly.

So as of tomorrow I will be posting daily for seven days and I’m going to tag Emmimori to start it too.

The rules? there are none, just have fun! All you have to do is tag another blogger to pass it on!

Happy posting!!
