Flavour Of The Week: Choi Si Won

I never rooted for a K-Drama second lead as hard as I did for Choi Si-Won’s character in She Was Pretty. I found this thắm thiết comedy after seeing the lead actor, Park Seo-Joon, in the historical drama Hwarang. This show is about Hye-Jin, a once beautiful girl who goes khổng lồ work at a fashion magazine and ends up caught between Sung-Joon, her childhood love (who doesn’t recognize her) and a new friend, Shin-Hyuk (played by Choi Si-Won) who sees past her appearance. Surprisingly, it wasn’t Seo-Joon that captured my heart, but the second-lead, played by Choi Si-Won. If the first photo alone isn’t enough to convince you to watch this gem of a show, I’m going to highlight five times Choi Si-Won melts our hearts as the perfect K-Drama gentleman.

Five Times Choi Si-Won Melts Our Hearts in She Was Pretty(In Order of Episodes)#1 Orabeoni, Interrupting (Episode 4)

The first thing we notice about Shin-Hyuk’s character is his sense of humor. He is energetic, charming, và goofy. Hye-Jin and Shin-Hyuk’s friendship starts out as an older brother (orabeoni) and younger sister (dongsaeng) relationship và he makes it his personal mission lớn pest her endlessly. One day, when she notices the sky is especially beautiful và goes to lớn take a photo, Shin-Hyuk scampers over blowing a big bubble of gum in the middle of her photo.


When Hye-Jin remarks how pretty the sky looks, he looks at her with a smile and says “Yes. It is pretty.” Aww. My heart just melted a bit. Or a lot.

#2 Shin-Hyuk Plays Nurse (Episode 6)

Throughout the show, Shin-Hyuk goes above và beyond for Hye-Jin. When she calls him, asking if he could drop off medicine for Sung-Joon, he begrudgingly agrees. He makes sure to emphasize it’s only because she’s his dongsaeng.


Not only is seeing a concerned Si-Won mothering over Sung-Joon amusing, we also see Shin-Hyuk slowly reveal a compassionate heart underneath all that teasing. Also, this is just one of many hilarious bromance moments between these two actors.

#3 An Adorable Confession (Episode 7)

Despite his outgoing personality, Shin-Hyuk can also be adorably shy, as he is when he confesses his feelings for Hye-Jin.

“I think I lượt thích you. A lot.”

Later, when he sees Sung-Joon with another woman over her shoulder, he keeps her feelings from getting hurt by distracting her the only way a perfect K-Drama gentleman can—by sweeping her into a tender back hug.

Shin-Hyuk proves lớn be even more of a sweetheart when he sees Hye-Jin’s new look. In shock, he asks her where her freckles went, insisting he misses her best feature. Shin-Hyuk likes Hye-Jin for herself, not for her looks—a refreshing breath of classic romance in a world that emphasizes appearance. Shin-Hyuk thinks Hye-Jin’s frizzy hair & freckles are beautiful because they are hers, just like her kindness khổng lồ others, which he has seen over time.

Even though Shin-Hyuk doesn’t express his love for Hye-Jin in so many words, his actions speak volumes. When Shin-Hyuk drops everything & races out into a torrential thunderstorm on his motorcycle khổng lồ protect Hye-Jin, we see how deeply he cares about her.
