One more episode, please: ‘She Was Pretty’

04She Was Pretty Official Poster

She Was Pretty aired almost three years ago, but it doesn’t seem to have lost any of its charm.

I was looking for a series that will give me romance and comedy, and this K-Drama didn’t disappoint. Watching the series was like stepping into a warm and cozy room and never wanting to leave. It also felt like that rainy day when you just want to stay at home while sipping a hot cup of chocolate. The series was that familiar and inviting.

What’s it about?

The series tells the story of two childhood best friends, Kim Hye-jin (Hwang Jung-eum) who used to be rich and pretty and Ji Sung-joon (Park Seo-joon) who used to be an unattractive young boy. The two meet again as adults, but their appearances and fortunes have been reversed. Hye-jin has lost her beauty, while Sung-joon becomes attractive and successful.


How many episodes?

It has a total of 16 episodes with each episode running for more or less than an hour.

What do I like about it?

I laughed a lot while watching this. This super kilig romantic comedy drama got me hooked. I finished the entire series in just a few days. I love the plot twists even though some were a bit obvious. Each character plays an important role in the development of the story, making even the minor scenes as equally important as the major ones. The build-up was great and I found the big reveal at the end quite unexpected. I have nothing bad to say against this series except that it should have more episodes, because it was that good.

Heads up!

If you want to laugh and fall in love, then this MBC Korean Drama is perfect for you. Expect the story to focus on friendship, self-worth, self-love, and romance in general. You can binge-watch it in just a few days.

Where to watch?

She Was Pretty is available on Viu.
