Korean Drama Review SWP

Long time no blog haha! Hope everyone has been well! Glad to be writing after a while. Has been quite busy and also due to not completely finishing one drama. My passion for dramas seems to be reignited in me again. Good to have this feel! Sometimes, when I am feeling troubled in my life or when I use dramas as a way to escape from reality, the thirst for dramas just isn’t that much and it doesn’t really make me feel fulfilled when watching.

She was pretty (2015)  她真漂亮

Genre: Romance, Comedy

Enjoyment: 10/10  Pace: 9/10  No. of times I watched it: 2

she was pretty

starring Hwang Jung Eum as Kim Hye Jin, Jung Da Bin as Hye Jin (young), Park Seo Joon as Ji Sung Joon, Yang Han Yeol as Sung Joon (young), Go Joon Hee as Min Ha Ri, Choi Shi Won as Kim Shin Hyuk

 

It is funny how Sung Joon is such a workaholic. He bangs into walls and even drinks from a vase instead of a cup due to his constant attention on his I pad. There is an unexpected post-trauma phobia Sung Joon has which I think is effectively used haha. Liked the scene where Hye Jin puts her jacket over their heads as she tried to calm him down in the rain. It linked very well to them when they were young. Enjoyed how Sung Joon grows to depend on others and how Hye Jin grows to be more confident about herself. Liked the chemistry between the couple. Fashion is definitely not what I am good at so I can relate to how Hye Jin can’t recognise the different brands and types of clothes when she is working for a fashion magazine company haha.

Besides the lead characters, I feel that Choi Si Won acted very well. His character is totally different from my normal impression of him haha. His character added lots of comedy to this drama and touching moments at the end of it. Liked Shin Hyuk’s happy-go-lucky personality and how he makes fun of people and jokes with them, especially when with Hye Jin. When I think about him mischievously waiting to see the other person’s reaction after he throws a toy spider at the person, it often makes me feel like laughing.

This drama also revolves around friendship, Ha Ri and Hye Jin+ Hye Jin and Sung Joon. Friends are indeed a huge influence in our lives. I liked how it is portrayed that even having one friend makes all the difference in life. You don’t have to have many people as friends. You just need that one true friend who will not leave you even if you are an outcast or looked down by others! The friendships are well developed within this drama. In addition, I am satisfied with the ending as it gives a very complete end.

She was pretty quotes (Korean Drama)

Main characters are not only in dramas or movies. In reality, there are people who live like the main characters and some who live as supporting characters.
Maybe it was me who decided that I was one of the supporting characters. Giving up so easily by letting life dictate your path, wasn’t it me who turned off the spotlight that was shining down on me?

~Park Hye Jin

 

When I was given the mission, it was not only about The Most folding but I was also given the responsibility for all our team members so I can’t just do it half-heartedly.

I realised that just having 1 friend that stands by your side, this world is not so lonely and it can even be this fun.

~Ji Seung Joon

 

The only way that I can show myself the way I am and the writing the way it was without judgement was ironically by hiding myself. So I chose this lifestyle to have fun doing the work I like 100%.
