K-Drama First Thoughts |She Was Pretty|#7

So I’ve recently decided to talk more about my Korean obsessions (K-dramas being one of them) and decided I’d start it with this K-drama.

I’m not going to go too much in depth with the story, I’ll leave that for my review, so I’ll talk about the characters and the current grasp I have on the story line. There are four main characters, the first being a character called Kim Hye-Jin, the second being Ji Sung-Joon. Third, Min Ha-Ri and fourth Kim Shin-Hyuk

I’ll start with Hye-Jin. At the moment, her character really really annoys me. She overreacts and awful lot and ends up in situations that are very unrealistic. You also very rarely hear her talk normally, she shouts and screeches quite a lot. I don’t think it ruins the drama but it does get quite annoying after a while as her friend Min Ha-Ri (the third main character) seems perfectly normal and realistic.

I find Sung-Joon has multiple personalities in this drama. When he is in the workplace he is very cold. He is especially mean towards Hye-Jin but I feel like this is because her character is really OTT. When he is with Ha-Ri, he is very warm and kind he becomes very likeable. I am currently on ep 7 and at this point he seems so be warming up towards Hye-Jin and there feels like there is a bit of chemistry developing between them.

Ha-Ri is Hye-Jins best friend and room mate is is stunning and sophisticated. At the start of the drama is goes undercover as Hye-Jin to Meet Sung-Joon as Hye-Jin feel she is not god enough to be sene by him. At my current point in the drama, Ha-Ri seems to be developing feelings for Sung-Joon and they seem very well matched towards each other. She also has awesome fashion sense!!

Kim Shin-Hyuk is the last main character and is Hye-Jins colleague. I think the drama is edging for there to be romance between them but at the moment there seems to be absolutely no chemistry between them. Did I forget to mention that Shin-Hyuk is played by Siwon from Super Junior! I love his character though as he is very happy and bouncy. He is also very funny with the way he winds everyone up.

Next, the story. Getting straight to the point, Hye-Jin and Ji-Sung were childhood friends. Her being a very pretty young girl and him being fat with nobody liking him. After Hye-Jin sees him being bullied she vows to be his friend and take care of him. You then find out that his mother recently died and he beings to panic about it on the bus ride home. He cries to get off and Hye-Jin follows him, eventually calming him telling him she  will be his umbrella. Sung-Joon eventually emigrates with his father leaving Hye-Jin behind.

Many years later, Hye-Jins fathers company went under and they were no longer rich. She also hit her puberty stages where she inherited her fathers pretty hair and skin condition (pink scarred cheeks). Sung-Joon comes back wanting to meet with Hye-Jin but upon seeing him she feels ashamed of herself so she asks her friend Ha-Ri to pretend to be her. He is also taking over a Magazine company Hye-Jin is working at and takes the role as her boss.

Fast forward and Sung-Joon is falling for Ha-Ri (who he things is Hye-Jin) and she is falling for him, and he is a complete ass to the real Hye-Jin insulting her constantly. Shin-Hyuk is slowly falling for the real Hye-Jin and Hye-Jin has feelings toward Sung-Joon.

I have no idea where this drama is headed but I’m really looking forward to finding out!

If you’re looking for a romantic comedy drama with fun characters, I’d definitely recommend this one!
