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

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 »

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 »

Offers are out to Hwang Jung-eum and Park Seo-joon to return to MBC and headline their next Wednesday-Thursday drama, called She Was Pretty.... More »
