The big similarities between Lucky Romance and She Was Pretty that makes this new drama boring.
PS: beside Hwang Jung Eum.
01. The asshole boss
Ugh. Not again. They are rich, genius, charming, workaholic good and famous they are at their jobs. But they have no humanity or respect toward the female leads and their employees. In real life they probably already ended up dead outside after office hours end. Well but of course in dramaland, they will get softer because of looooove.
02. Hidden childhood trauma
She Was Pretty’s dude is trauma of rain. Tiger dude is having trauma with camera flashes and water. No worries, they’ll get better with the helping of the glorious love.
03. Second male lead is adorable yet forever alone
Both are kind, cute and funny. Both accept the female lead just the way she is. Both are actually famous but kinda play around and hide their identities. They won’t get the girl. #awpoorbabies
04. Typical clumsy female lead
Poor, clumsy, not attractive, a plain big mess, but kind, diligent, optimistic and energetic. How many times has Hwang Jung Eum played this type of character?
05. The office goal
The Most team must be a rank 1 magazine in a given time or they’ll get closed down. Zeze team must launch the best game in a given time or their business is over. Boom! Anotha goal pleaseeee.
“She Was Pretty is the only drama I will never finish. I know the male lead is supposed to be a jerk but the hatred had me ranting into the night. My SLS was strong, Siwon’s endearingly layered performance made me so happy but I knew she wouldn’t pick him. All I’m thinking is, you are really gonna support this harmful relationship over one where the guy was Interested in her no matter what and was upfront and painfully honest with his true feelings rather than being needlessly aggressive and withdrawn.”
