‘She was Pretty’ is about a girl, Kim Hye Jin, who once looked pretty, and her first love, Ji Seong Jun, (you’ve guessed it, who was once chubby and fat). Seong Jun plans to meet up with Hye Jin, but she gets scared that he might run away from her due to her looks, so she makes her best friend pretend to be her.

When I first heard about this drama, I was so excited to watch it because it seemed a little different from that usual “nice girl meets arrogant guy, fall in love, the end” story line. But, it was nothing special. The drama was so addictive, until it hit a certain point, and it was such a drag to watch. It got so bad I started skipping parts. The main leads, that were once fun to watch, became like every other “im so in love” leads, and the drama got so predictable by ep.6

But, none the less, it was a good watch.

3/5 stars

She was pretty is like any good romantic comedy; lighthearted, fun and driven by entertaining, heartfelt characters. And while it does have some pitfalls, the show manages to be enjoyable throughout.

The main driving force of the show are the characters. Winningly played, the main quartet are fun to watch. And while they may occasionally drive you up the wall, they all manage to tug on the heart strings and surprise you in delightful ways. And the best part is they all stay true to their personalities even as they grow, so while they do change and mature, their core stays rooted.

The main plots - the workplace and the romance - sometimes snag and dragged, with importance placed on aspects that don`t quite ring true. But because they affect and are driven by the characters, it never fails to keep you interested and never feels bland.

Despite the flaws, an enjoyable watch for the characters alone.

I liked this drama but too bad that there was almost no chemistry between lead couple. They gave me friends vibe rather than lovers. Park Seo Jun is sucha great kdrama kisser so it was a shame that during kiss scenes (there were only few of them!) Hwang Jeong Eum was standing like a nail with her lips closed....uhh that was sooooo frustrating. I also loved Si Won character! He was really great :)

Siwon made this drama for me! Although I did enjoy the rest of the cast, his character was the best.

Another great drama that I really enjoyed watching! All the characters were interesting, I couldn't even get annoyed at Ha Ri since she felt so sorry for what she did. Hye Jin was so funny, not to mention Shin Hyuk and his pranks!

The OST was lovely and also the ending! Entertaining drama overall. I will miss it.

Omg, towards second half Hye Jin started to annoy the hell out of me with her nasal shouting all the time.

Loved how many great character this show had though. And Seo Jun is love!

Бесила Чон Ым немного, но Ши Вон все исправил. Можно смотреть дораму хотя бы ради него :)

i can't believe there are ppl who find this drama boring and bad.. it was really good and really a positive one. especially the second part of it. i just loved all the episodes since like..11-12 till the end - so fun, cute and cleverly shot.
the plot, the characters, not a single "negative" character or the one you would hate. i'd definately recommend it if you want something good, not irritating and inspirational to watch. as someome said it's very peaceful and light hearted. and that's the main advantage.
