She Was Pretty


You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.

You might be curious as to why I have written “She Was Pretty” as the title of this new blog post of mine.

Since yesterday, I have been thinking of a good topic to write since I initially promised myself to write at least one article every day.

Just this morning, I have thought writing about a series which I really love.

If you have read my post entitled “Let’s know more about the writer”, you are well aware that I am more of a “movie/series” person than a “book” person and that I love watching Korean and Chinese artists.

I just love seeing how beautiful the scenes are happening.

On my article entitled “Real Neat Award Nomination by ZARBAKHT BILAL”, I have mentioned as well that I am really into Korean groups and actors.

If you haven’t read those, feel free to visit!

“She Was Pretty” is a Korean series starring Hwang Jung-Eum, Park Seo-Joon (my favorite actor), Go Joon-Hee and Choi Si-won. It aired year 2015 with several episodes and captured the hearts of lots of viewers all over the world. This was actually the first series I have watched completely (except from the famous “Meteor Garden”, a Taiwanese show). This series opened my eyes to other Korean series.

The story talks about two people who happened to be childhood sweethearts and best of friends while young. They have shared lots of memories together. The boy, a chubby cute little boy, fell in love with a very beautiful girl who happened to be part of a stable family owning a publishing company.

As years passed by, the boy’s family decided to go to other country and stay there for good which was the main reason why they parted ways. Although they still kept their communication through mails.

After several years, they both had their own lives, different twists and turns. The lady’s family business went bankrupt and her appearance suddenly changed – from being too attractive to being unconventionally pretty whereas the guy happened to be successful in the industry of fashion designing having good looks (which is too far from what he looked before). When the guy went back, he decided to search for the lady and asked her to meet him. The lady, too excited to see her childhood best friend, prepared a lot. As she was walking by, she saw a good looking man who happened to be her best friend. She lost all her confidence and decided to ask a friend of hers to pretend in her place.

But destiny was indeed playful, they have met again on a publishing company wherein they landed at the same department, the guy being the supervisor and the lady as one of the team members.

The guy, without knowing that he is with his best friend, shows rude behavior and expresses her unlikeness towards the lady. The lady has been heartbroken and realized that the guy really changed a lot.

As the story progresses, the guy, although doing his best not to fall in love, still found the lady attractive. He then showed his feelings and made the lady feel special in any way. Of course, at the end of the story, he eventually found out the lady’s true identity. They got married and had their own family.

I really am really into this series as I have got lots of life lessons.

  • We all have our inner beauty. They say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” which I firmly believe to be true. Beauty is not merely seen on the outside but on one’s attitude towards things.
  • Be confident in any way. You are God’s creation and you are beautiful. What others say do not count or matter much.
  • Life is not stable and change is inevitable. No matter how you stick with who you are or what you have at the moment, there would still be a probability of losing it.
  • Everything happens for reason. You are where you are right now because you are destined to be there. Trust the process.
  • Most importantly, true love will definitely find a way to the right person amidst any circumstances and situation.

I hope this somehow made you realized about something.

Thank you for reading!

Happy Wednesday, Sunnies! ❤
