Go Jun-hee to reunite with Hwang Jung-eum in She Was Pretty

Go Jun-hee (Yawang) might become the latest addition to MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama She Was Pretty, which is still courting Kill Me, Heal Me costars Hwang Jung-eum and Park Seo-joon to headline. The offer is out to Go Jun-hee to play the second lead opposite Hwang Jung-eum, which she’s actually done once before in 2011’s Can You Hear My Heart.

The new series from writer Jo Sung-hee (second writer on High School King of Savvy, staff writer on Seasons 2 and 3 of High Kick) and PD Jung Dae-yoon (second PD on Sly and Single Again, The King 2 Hearts) is about a girl who was once rich and beautiful who becomes poor and ugly, and a boy who was ugly and overweight who ends up hot. It’s not a deep premise, that’s for sure.

Hwang Jung-eum is up to play the heroine, a once beautiful girl whose family faces financial ruin right around the time her grandfather’s ugly gene passes down and makes her ugly too. I don’t know how that works, but okay. Park Seo-joon’s character is a socially awkward geek who can’t even talk to girls, and as an adult he sheds a bunch of weight, has a growth spurt, and looks like a model. I’m sensing that the moral of the story is not to judge people based on what they look like in high school?

Go Jun-hee is considering a role as the heroine’s best friend, a beautiful hotelier with good fashion sense who’s popular with men. She’s dated lots of different guys but never actually been heartbroken over one before, but when she meets her best friend’s first love (Park Seo-joon), she’ll find herself caught between friendship or love.

She Was Pretty follows Scholar Who Walks the Night in September.

Interesting premise but hopefully it won't be all light fluff and perhaps have some character development. I think beauty is an interesting theme to explore and it's value on almost all societies and cultures.

I thought "Michelin Star" and "The Man of Two Faces" were fighting over this slot. They were ditched... for this?! No wonder ratings are spiraling down.

Oh gosh, I hope the "ugly gene" isn't frizzy hair.... but that's the only way you can have a beautiful actress play the heroine that's "ugly" . Ain't no way the production (or even the audience?) will watch an actually plain person onscreen much less ugly.

Don't forget the glasses! She has to have frizzy hair and glasses and dress frumpy. Those are the 3 key components to being ugly.

And I personally would love the show if they actually got an unattractive actress. They cast a lot of unattractive or ugly men in rolls and lead rolls but god forbid if the actress isn't gorgeous.

I like Go Jun-hee. There's something interesting about her.

Hoping all 3 actors will accept the roles.

Wouldn't it be better to skip the ugly gene and the coincidence of financial collapse at the same time - just give her a botched cosmetic surgery and a bunch of expensive, unsuccessful attempts to repair....
Probably more realistic too, and you could find enough lessons and "moral of the story' to stretch from here to Pluto.

I really like Go Jun-hee and this role reminds me of the part she played in 12 Signs if Love. She was really great. This story also reminds me a little of Get Carl, Oh SooJung. Not deep but fun.

I love Go Jun-hee and Hwang Jung-eum, I haven't decided on Park Seo-joon yet. I hope this drama is better than it sounds but I'm willing to give it a try since I would watch Jung-eum in absolutely anything. Even the dreadful Death Bell 2.

Go Jun Hee is gorgeous and has an alluring aura to her. The casting for this drama has been surprisingly good thus far, at least a lot better than Taming the Mother in Law one. That one is just wtf-ery across the board minus Ryu.

I cant reply to people for some reason when I am on my phone.
Anyway I think they will do more than just glasses and frizzy hair because those are accessories only. Since the drama is about ugly 'gene' I am some expecting some real ugliness that can't just be changed by giving a makeover.
And I don't think plastic surgery will solve it because its genetic and keep reappearing (?)

What they probably mean is that the girl was once the " babe" in high school and riding on popularity but as she grew up she became unpopular and less attractive !!! And also because her family business went bankrupt that also affected her whole outlook !!!
