Laughter and tears for She Was Pretty’s second leads

Okay, if Siwon is going to be this cute and funny all series long, it might be hard to pick a side in the love triangle. The second teaser for MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama She Was Pretty features second leads Choi Siwon and Go Jun-hee in a similar setup to the first teaser, this time with the couple arguing over what to watch on TV, and Siwon being outed as a closet drama fan.

The new romantic comedy comes from the second PD on Arang and the Magistrate and The King 2 Hearts, and the second writer on High School King of Savvy and High Kick Through the Roof. It stars Hwang Jung-eum as the heroine who goes from being the pretty golden girl in her youth to being an average nobody as an adult, and Park Seo-joon as her secret first love who has the good fortune of going in the reverse direction, from nerdy teen to hot man.

Go Jun-hee is the heroine’s best friend, a hotelier who seems like she has it all together, but can’t manage to make a relationship last. Siwon is the features editor at the fashion magazine where the leads will work, but he’s surprisingly unfashionable and extremely cheeky, especially to the heroine who works there as an intern.

The teaser opens with Go Jun-hee asking Siwon to watch a drama with her, and he flatly refuses, saying, “If you cry and then laugh, you’ll grow hair on your butt!” (It’s an old Korean adage that adults always say to you when you’re a kid.) He wonders why she’d watch that stuff, only to take a peek on his own and bust out laughing and crying. We know a drama convert when we see one!

He comes back to the couch, still insisting that he doesn’t watch dramas, and Go Jun-hee picks up on his red eyes and flaring nostrils. He finally bursts into tears and gets up, revealing a tail on his butt. Hee.

The show’s premise seems pretty one-dimensional, but I like the feel of the teasers and I trust the actors to bring something extra to their characters, to make it a fun contemporary romance. Here’s hoping for big laughs. And tears. And hairy butts?

She Was Pretty follows Scholar Who Walks the Night and premieres September 16.

Still to this day, Siwon's garlic kiss in King of Dramas is top 10 in my book.

If it's the franchise I think you're referring to...so far 2 sequels plus a movie right???...I didn't realize that he was in the sequel until just now when you mentioned it. Of course back then when I watched it, I was new to kdramas and still learning names and faces.

I like our leads and Choi Siwon, but I'll probably give this a try mostly because of Go Jun-hee, whom I love. I really wish she would do more.

Siwon isn't that great in serious or deep roles but he is perfect in these light over-the-top funny characters and I love him in these roles.

That's right! Garlic Kiss Siwon! I love the fact that this man, as fine and sexy as he is, is not afraid to play silly characters. I'm watching this drama just because he is in it.

Doesn't he have a movie with Adrian Brody coming out? Hmmm...

oh my gosh, just looking at the still makes me gin like a goof.
thank goodness for Siwon, funny guys are getting so rare you have more hope finding a dwarf in your cupboard. and some people have gotten so literal they dont understand comedy any more. WHY SO SERIOUS?

me who grew up with Louis De Funet and Ervin Abel and looked for then for consolation, can really appreciate comedic talent.

Siwon makes me laugh. Love him to pieces in Hyangdan. I hope to see him do more rom.com (sageuk-ish) type in the future especially with someone like Seo Ji-Hye.

Hyang Dan was a Siwon first for me and more so because of JB's intricate recap back in 2007! This man is so hilarious! And seeing him at KCon LA last month with the rest of Super Junior was a huge gift! They blew the audience away! This will be his show before heading to the military and I hope the laughs keep on coming! Fighting!

Mejusthave to say that second leads are the one who interest me in this drama pitch. Park Seo-joon and Hwang Jung-eum have their own KMHM followers, but their pitch does not interest me at all. Zero. Nada. But Siwon and Go Jun-hee- ohh these second leads sell it alright.

Wishin that these two were the leads. Siiiiigh. The deepest sigh I've had in a long time.

Choi Siwon is a rare specimen nowadays. Anyone who watched the Chinese We Are In Love with him and Liu Wen will realise that he is a gentleman, he's polite and treats people well. What more can you ask for in this day and age? Also, being a kpop idol on top of that. There's hope that celebrities can use their fame for something useful and not turn into a cliche and go down the path of self indulgence/destruction. Makes you wish there were more like him.

Hope the two years in the military will make him even better, if that's even possible! Mr. Choi Siwon, fighting!

Also, here's wishing this drama will be a good one for all involved. They are all good actors and deserve success.

i just hope the pairing between Park Seo joon and Hwang Jung-eum is not going to be outshine by the second leads, like the ones in High Society.

Wow! Please don't tell rude comments. There's a lot of fans about first leading actress. I know that is impossible everyone loves her. But there is reasonable thing that actress Hwang jung eum takes the leading role. Do you really hope main characters are not going to be outshine by the second leads? Then Drama will be messed up. I love all actors & actresses. And I always belive actress Hwang jung eum' choice & acting ability. I understand others doesn't like Hwang jung eum. That is someone's taste. But drama character casting is PD's intention. No more personal attack please!

Which comment that is rude? Is liking a second lead rather than the other considered rude?

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

as much as the second leads serve as support, there are times when the chemistry is better and the romantic arc is more interesting that people notice them more. just like in recently concluded high society that a number of fans ache and empathize more with the second leads.

but as bbstl hopes, it will be cute to see bromance in this one, hahahaha. with Si Won and Park Seo-joon doing akward cutesy stuff. I love Seo-Joon's reaction whenever Ji Sung turns into a high schooler in love with oppa in kill me heal me. With Si Won's exaggerated expression like above, that would be great!

I haven't seen any rude comments so far about the actors. Folks here made some comparisons between the two couples and some prefer the second leads, whereas some like all four actors.

I like Siwon and has seen him in dramas, plus he is so adorable in this clip. Can't help but ship the second leads.

Hopefully the story is good because the premise is so superficial. I wonder if a flimsy premise like this can be interesting for more than a couple episodes....

Keeping a lookout for this one!
