Upcoming KBS Drama Baby-Faced Beauty Holds Script Reading with Leads Jang Nara and Daniel Choi

Upcoming KBS Mon-Tues drama Pretty Young Woman (also known as Youthful Beauty or Baby-Faced Beauty) held its first script reading session yesterday. This will be Jang Nara‘s return to K-dramas after working almost exclusively in China for the last few years. Her leading man has been confirmed as Daniel Choi, and the drama is directed by the PD who did Birth of the Rich and written by the scriptwriter that brought the fusion sageuk Gumiho: Revenge of the Fox Child.

Y’all know I can’t stand Jang Nara, but I admit to being curious about this drama – which has Jang Nara playing a forever youthful scrappy young woman who uses her innocent looks to succeed and get her way in life. She assumes the identity of her younger sister by seven years and gets a job at a clothing company. Surprisingly, Daniel Choi and Jang Nara actually look really cute together.

Honestly, while I think Jang Nara’s acting is annoyingly OTT, my dislike of her is likely compounded by her always playing shrilly and screechy characters I hate with the heat of a thousand suns (Success Story of a Bright Girl, My Love Patzzi). Perhaps this drama will change of my opinion about her. Who knows, stranger things have happened. Pretty Young Woman premieres in May after Crime Squad.

  1. Come on Koala you know this drama is all about DANIEL CHOI!!!!!
    her not so much…I agree with you regarding her acting, but I hope
    the drama is cute, funny, and worth watching. Btw, she doesn’t look 30, she still looks 23…I wonder where she found the Fountain of Youth?…. 😛

  2. ‘Who knows, stranger things have happened.’

    Yes, I agree with you. I don’t like Kim Tae Hee and Song Seung Hun, but now I keep replaying My Princess all over again just to watch them.

    Sigh.. just never say never..

    I agree with this. I love Jang Nara for being cute and cheerful.. but I do think that her acting is all similar in almost every character she played.
