Upcoming MBC drama She Was Pretty is shaping up to be right up from alley with the cast. The final member of the main leads was revealed today and the second male lead will be none other than Choi Siwon of Super Junior. Siwon had a bit part cameo in the KBS drama Masked Prosecutor but other than that hasn’t been onscreen in a K-drama since King of Dramas back in 2012. He’s not the best actor, or all the good looking if you ask me, but I’ve always enjoyed watching his performances which has a comfortable confidence about it.
In She Was Pretty, his role will be a top magazine editor who unexpectedly becomes friends with Hwang Jung Eum’s adult ugly duckling female lead and later falls for her. It’s basically the textbook second male lead, while the leads in this drama will have Hwang Jung Eum and Park Seo Joon having opposite life fates and whatnot just to hammer home the point of their opposites meant to be drama destiny. I’m really hoping the drama ramps up the comedic side of the rom-com since the leads have excellent comedic chops, plus it’s much easier to watch when the drama takes the set up less seriously and just aims for fun.
