Pretty Li Hui Zhen 漂亮的李慧珍 is the Chinese remake of the hit k-drama She Was Pretty that aired on MBC in 2015. It tells a reversal of sorts when the beautiful swan turns into an ugly duckling while her childhood friend grows up to be quite the opposite.
Di Li Re Ba, Sheng Yi Lun, Li Xi Rui and Zhang Bin Bin sum up the cast. In case you don't know, Di Li Re Ba who plays the ordinary girl insecure about her looks is of Uygher descent, an ethnic minority group in China and she is popular for being a gorgeous beauty but I guess that's the whole point.
After Love O2O, I have a newfound respect for Chinese rom-coms so I'm actually really excited to watch this. Moreover, its k-drama predecessor, which I never had the chance to see received such raving reviews so pardon me for repeating myself but yes, super excited.
