Anyone who has watched Kill Me Heal Me would definitely agree that even while rooting for Ji Sung, you would have secretly hoped for Hwang Jung-eum’s character to end up with Park Seo-joon‘s. Though that was not possible in Kill Me Heal Me, worry not, you have She Was Pretty to curb all that syndrome!
Starring Park Seo-joon as Ji Sung-joon , Hwang Jung-eum as Kim Hye-jin, and Choi Siwon as Kim Shin-hyuk, She Was Pretty aired on MBC in 2015, and is a cozy warm drama that conveys the message of love and confidence beyond looks.
Hwang Jung-eum plays a rich pretty young girl who loses her beauty over the years of poverty and struggle and, ends up hiding her identity from her childhood friend (Park Seo-joon). Her portrayal of Kim Hye-jin has the right amount of clumsiness and fun, yet also invokes a thought on how our society looks upon physical appearance to assess a person.
The chemistry between the leads are sure to satisfy those Kill Me Heal Me pangs. If there they gave sibling goals, here they deliver relationship goals!
Warning: Be prepared to leave with another serious second lead syndrome.
Choi Siwon as Kim Shin-hyuk is truly the king of expressions and is guaranteed to leave you in splits every time he pops up on the screen.
But the real charm of the drama is how the character of Kim Hye-jin develops.
From a pretty rich young girl to a poor and struggling woman with low self-esteem, she builds her castle stone by stone, her growing confidence introspection and above all, learning to be happy.
When someone is doing what they really like, that’s when they look the most beautiful. I want to look truly beautiful as I do what I like- not to someone else, but to myself.
