Synopsis Korean Drama She Was Pretty
Hye Jin is known as a sweet daughter and was born into a well-to-do family. However, when Hye Jin's family company went bankrupt, she followed her life which was no longer beautiful.
Hye Jin has a childhood partner named Ji Sung Joon (Park Seo Joon). Little Sung Joon has a similarly unattractive body shape and has low self-confidence. Like the world turned upside down, Sung Joon grows up to be a grown man and succeeds in a fashion magazine.
Hye Jin feels embarrassed to meet Sung Joon who is more attractive than her. Sung Joon doesn't know the current Hye Jin. Hye Jin then made a scenario by inviting her closest friends who looked prettier, Ha Ri (Go Joon Hee) to replace her with Sung Joon.
This turns out to be continued until the seeds of love between Ha Ri and Sung Joon grow. As this continues, Sung Joon doesn't know Hye Jin as his childhood partner first. Hye Jin proposes at Sung Joon's office. Despite not getting good actions, he finds a new partner, Kim Shin Hyuk (Choi Siwon).
She Was Pretty is also Hwang Jung Eum's second project with Go Joon Hee. Previously, they both starred in the Korean drama Can You Hear My Heart (2011). Their close relationship made their chemistry in She Was Pretty perfect.
