The year 2015 was the golden age for the tv industry, producing dramas hit after hit like “Oh My Ghost,” “Kill Me, Heal Me,” “Oh My Venus,” “Who Are You: School 2015,” and “The Producers.” But among the others, MBC’s “She Was Pretty” was one of all the foremost memorable and most remarkable dramas of 2015.
The drama tells the story of two childhood friends, Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum) and Sung Joon (Park Seo Joon) who conceive to meet again as adults but things drastically change.
