She Was Pretty’s first teaser doles out sweetness and kisses

Okay, fine, ONE kiss, not multiples. Still, I’ll take it. (Warning: There is a video that auto-plays in this post. Sorry! It’s the only one MBC has released that allows us to watch the first teaser for She Was Pretty, sadly.)

The teaser gives us a cute glimpse into the rom-com’s leads and their chemistry, although anyone who saw them in Kill Me, Heal Me already knows that Park Seo-joon and Hwang Jung-eum have plenty of chemistry. (Enough that I always felt a little squicky watching them play siblings in that show, although—SPOILER ALERT—we did later find out they weren’t blood siblings. Still! I’m glad they get their own drama where they get to play out the romantic tension to its full effect.)

The teaser starts with Hwang Jung-eum handing Park Seo-joon a cup of coffee, and when he asks why they’re drinking coffee at such a late hour, she replies that you have to when watching this drama: “Because it’s so sweet.” Then he kisses her on the cheek, asking, “Like this?” Ha, smooth operator.

The show’s plot features a heroine (Hwang) who was once the icon of first loves everywhere, a princess who grew up wealthy and beautiful, only to experience a total change and become ugly in adulthood. Park Seo-joon was an unattractive loser-like youth who becomes a model-handsome grown-up, and he sets out to find his “hidden first love.” Surprises and hijinks guaranteed.

In addition to the lead pair, we also have Choi Siwon as a mysterious former schoolmate who’s full of surprises and “crazy energy,” while Go Jun-hee plays the heroine’s best friend, a sexy type who looks perfect but is “full of flaws.” Basically, everyone’s got a contradiction or two in the mix, which should keep them interesting. (And before you get excited, no, Minho’s not in this drama; he’s pictured with Siwon below, having recently visited him on the drama’s set.)

She Was Pretty follows MBC’s current Wednesday-Thursday series Scholar Who Walks the Night and premieres on September 16.

Looking forward to this! And I love Choi Siwon in dramas. So much charisma, but so very dimwit/funny too.

Park Seo-joon seems to have excellent chemistry with everyone. Everything I've seen him in he sizzles with the leads. I especially loved him in Witch's Romance. He's also an excellent kisser.

I'm definitely looking forward to this!

He could start a fire with an ice cube. But I absolutely despise her as an actress. Having to watch her overact just to seem him....I don't know if I can do it.

For all the shows she has been in I seem to have not seen anything she has been in except KMHM. I think she did fine in the show. She did thankfully calm down in her acting after the first few episodes. But I personally would prefer her overacting then a wooden actress like Han Ga-In or Jin Se-Yun.

Yep that's how I feel too. Overacting isnt great but its vastly preferable to me than dead fish faces and wooden plank body language. Count me excited for this pairing.

Add Shin Se Kyung in the mix too...though she has improved depending on her projects (and yes, she gets a lot of projects)...I still see that dead expression from time to time...

I have only seen The Girl Who Sees Smells with her in it and thought she was great in that. So I can't really comment on her previous works.

I'm a little worried about the overacting, too. Especially after KMHM. I am looking forward to a cute new rom-com, but if it's all shrieky, bleurgh.

Also, in one of their podcasts Javabeans and girlfriday commented on how Hwang Jung Eum's hair was getting worse with each drama she did and it seems that this one is no exception. I suppose it has the excuse of being built into the premise this time though?

He is one of the most charismatic kdrama actors i've probably seen. Just naturally disarming and incredibly charming with that sweet, genuine looking smile of his. I wasn't checking for him at all till I finally saw him in action in KMHM. He made me an instant fan!

I'd love to see him with a girl his own age. Perhaps Han Groo again. I loved her in Marriage Not Dating and the pairing is age appropriate. This woman is only 30 but to me she looks 35 and I really can't stand her as an actress.

There are real life situations where your first love doesn't get ugly for real, but you guys grow up... And then you see her and realize she isn't actually as pretty or attractive as you remember or made her out to be in your youth. Maybe they're angling for that? Since the guy was the unattractive loser type in his mind she, as the popular girl, was super super super beautiful, only to grow up and see her as mediochre. Hwang jung eum isn't really drop dead gorgeous with her hair like that.

Though it'd be weird to see them play a couple, it's still great to see them have their own show! They have great chemistry onscreen and I can't wait to see Siwon back on screen!

Now, that would be awesome, especially if he plays someone who harbors a crush for HJE. :D

The cast looks fantastic, so I'm very excited to watch the drama, even if I might later on go "meh" seeing what the supposedly ugly-fied HJE looks.

I cannot stress enough how much I dislike this woman as an actress. Her horrible overacting has made me drop at least one drama and it irks me that she often gets roles opposite some of the best most charismatic leading men. Obviously they are what carries the show. Of course there is chemistry because Park Seo Joon is a babe and could generate heat with an ice cube. I know she's only 30 but she looks 35. I'd love to see Park Seo joon in a drama with a girl his age maybe the Ha Groo who has lots of charisma and wonderful comedic timing. I'd like to see that paring again.

Hmm, I've seen about 3 of her dramas and the only one where she obviously overracted in was KMHM. I always figured her acting there was due to directing because the show was on the campy, goofy side and ran with it.

I actually though she did a phenomenal job in Secret which a lesser actress would have trouble in. That was an intense, dramatic role so maybe that's where she really shines. If she overracts here, well then we'll know for sure that comedy is not her strongest suit!

She looks way older than she is because of that (now) annoying hairstyle she will not let go of! Come on, HJE!!!

Ooooh, this one is on my radar! I LOVE the cast!

I didn't see KMHM but I loved Park Seo Joon in Witch's Romance! He really is charming!

People are complaining about Hwang Jung Eum but I saw her in Can You Hear My Heart and thought she was fine. Not great but not terrible, just fine. I thought she really suited her character and had some really funny moments!

I also see that she is reunited with Go Jun Hee who was also in Can You Hear My Heart! She's so pretty and bubbly and bright, so I can't wait to see her on screen again!

I've actually never seen anything with Siwon and don't follow Super Junior so I don't know much about him but you all are talking favorably about him so I'm looking forward to him, too!

Lol, I think Park Seo Joon's hair is just wet and Hwang Jung Eum always seems to get a fresh cut (and a bit of curl) for her drama roles of this type. Midway through the show, it'll be shoulder length (and also prettier because that length suits her) lol.

Park Seo Joon is looking FINEEEEEE. Haven't seen him in a bad haircut at all.
The teaser is cute. I like both leads so I'm excited for this show.
I haven't watched many of Hwang Jung Eum's dramas.... Just one, actually, but I'd like to see her in a new hairstyle. It looks good in the sleek, straight style in the script read photos though.

Go Jun Hee looks cool and different with her much shorter hairstyle than the last time I've seen her.

Never seen a drama with the lead guy Park Seo Joon. Have been meaning to watch "Witch Romance and have heard good things about him.
Kinda a slap in the face for viewers when she's suppose to be 'ugly' but Hwang Jung Eum is dam pretty even with that plain haircut. Oh well. If they really did cast an ugly actress then no one will watch the show. And there will definitely be more fanatical fan complaints. Lol. ;)
