MBC‘s drama “She Was Pretty” has been confirmed to be having a Chinese remake after its popularity throughout Asia.
According to local Chinese sources, the remake will be a Korean-Chinese joint production between Jaywalk Studio, the Chinese production company for top star Yang Mi, and Bon Factory, the Korean production company for the original “She Was Pretty.” The original writer Jo Seong Hee will be in charge of the script for the remake while young and rising star Dilraba (aka Di Li Re Ba) is being considered as a strong candidate for the female protagonist role.
Chinese Hallyu fans have reacted positively to the news of the Chinese version of “She Was Pretty.” This is because the drama was one that was highly popular despite the fact that it could not be aired in Korea and China simultaneously, due to online foreign broadcast issues within China. In addition to Dilraba, fans are wondering which Chinese actors/actresses will be cast for the other roles.
“She Was Pretty,” which finished airing last November, is a romantic comedy about the relationships between freckle-faced, curly-haired “nope-girl” Kim Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum), “it guy” Ji Sung Joon (Park Seo Joon), seemingly perfect yet “not-so-perfect sexy girl” Min Ha Ri (Go Jun Hee), and the mysterious, audacious and pleasantly surprising Kim Shin Hyuk (Choi Siwon).
