She Was Pretty: Episode 6

There’s nothing better to spark a romance than a healthy dose of jealousy, and poor Sung-joon never even sees it coming. Even worse when the person making him so jealous wants nothing more than to be his new bestie. He’s also starting to feel that something about this whole Hye-jin situation is terribly wrong, but...

The funny thing about lies is, once you tell one, they have a way of multiplying. Pretty soon you’re trapped by them with no way out but to tell the truth… but what if that truth is more painful than the lies? Ha-ri’s got herself in quite a bind and needs to find a way... More »

She Was Pretty continues its strong start with a second episode that’s as good as the first, giving us a little more information about our characters and their frustrating situation. Sung-joon and Hye-jin get off on the wrong foot at work, creating a lot of frustration and misunderstanding. It doesn’t help that Sung-joon has a... More »

She Was Pretty: Episode 1
by | September 16, 2015 | 185 Comments
Surprisingly affecting for a madcap romantic comedy, She Was Pretty starts off strong with a first episode I really liked. But more than that, I absolutely LOVE the characters, and have a feeling they’ll be a winning combination. I’m relieved that the first-love story is more poignant than trite, but that’s nothing compared to the... More »

Press conference day for rom-com She Was Pretty
by | September 14, 2015 | 64 Comments
This is rather late for a drama to be having its pre-broadcast press conference—the show airs in two days!—but I suppose better late than never? It’s for MBC’s She Was Pretty, and I hope the lateness of the press conference isn’t indicative of lateness anywhere else. (Press conferences are most commonly held a week prior... More »

Well at least She Was Pretty is getting some mileage out of its fashion magazine setting — the character posters are an array of magazine cover spreads for the leading characters, and the main poster is a cute use of Hwang Jung-eum’s face on a cover, used to shield her supposedly ugly “real” face in...

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,... More »

The main love square for MBC’s new romantic comedy She Was Pretty is almost complete: Choi Siwon (King of Dramas) is being courted to join the cast, which currently includes Kill Me, Heal Me twins Hwang Jung-eum and Park Seo-joon, and Go Jun-hee (Yawang).
