I really liked the first two episodes. Very tragic story and good acting, seems to be interesting. In-Soon's innervoice while thinking makes me laugh.

for anyone who has finished this drama, can you tell me if it is worth watching. It seems that I can't find a current thread on it (maybe I am blind LOL). I am a Lee Wan fan so was curious about this one but haven't heard much....

A predictable drama but still a good watch. A lovely happy ending. Worth watching with a great cast of actors and a great script.

I like Kim Min Joon a lot, but for some obscured reasons, I am still sitting on the sideline watching other stuffs....mainly Japanese dramas! (The story lines seem different from Korean dramas. Japanese series is more like a collection of short stories, as compared to a novel in Korean drama)

So, could you compare this drama to another similar drama in the past?
and on a scale of 1-10, how would you rank "In Soon is Pretty"?

I have just started episode 6 and all my liking for the series is slipping away. The whole storyline with her mom just seems so typical. As a matter of fact typical seems to be the best word to describe this show. And it started so well! I would have liked it better if it had really been about her struggles to improve and overcome the ex-con label. Mostly its about wiating for when her secret will be revealed and her mom will be embarrassed. Show would have been better if it was rooted in the everyday instead of the fantastical coincidences typical of kdramas.

I really liked in-soon is pretty, its not your typical korean drama and its really funny. I think the fact that she's keeping her past a secret plays a big role in the plot, so not having this aspect is pointless.

I enjoyed this drama and recommend it to people who are not easily entertained. This drama is def. not for childish teenagers who are just looking for cutesy themes.


p.s. does anyone else think jung-ah seems kinda mentally challenged? I was sooo sick of hearing her say, "오빠...같이 가요..." GRAHHHH!!!~ stop!. :P

The ending is a bit confusing. Did Insoon's brother died right? That is so least he died feeling a bit freer than before, not having to carry that burden anymore because he confessed. But still, that hurts watching him die alone at bus stop.

Lee Wan need to stop picking character that just dies at the end. Argh! lol

No more reactions to this drama??@-@ How sad, it's such a good one.
Like mentioned before probably not for someone who's looking for "looking for cutesy themes"
It left me kinf of thoughtful after every episode or when I took a break from my 3 episodes sessions.. really like the tune of it...
I would rate it right under Que Sera, Sera... QSS has a more romantic tune, while Insoon is more about her life in general *well of couse love can't be missed though^^*

The OST is great, too! My favorites are the SG Wannabe song and the instrumental Mom & I, F.T. Island's song has to be mentioned too XD

Hope to see more of Lee Wan in one of the major roles.. I liked him a lot in here *well more than in Heaven's Tree...a lot more^^*
