68. Pretty Man 예쁜남자 (2013) Korean

Jang Geun Suk, IU, Lee Jang Woo, Han Chae Young

Drama Rating: 6/10     Neck Score: B-

What I liked about this one was that it wasn't really about the romance, it was about this pretty man Doko Ma Te (Jang Geun Suk) discovering himself and reaching his full potential.  He is a pretty man who grew up with a single mom and now uses his looks to get money and other fancy things.  He's not exactly a man slut, but he does get rich sugar mamas to help him live the lifestyle he wants.  But what he really wants is to succeed on his own and meet his dad.  Then this woman (Han Chae Young) pops in and tells him who he is so he can help her bring her mother-in-law down so she can get her place in the family back.  In the mean time he has to become powerful himself to take this lady down.  He has to date/get to know a bunch of powerful women to learn from them, all the while getting help from his childhood friend/fangirl (IU) and the dude that has recently been following his friend around (much to Ma Te's displeasure.  It was much better than I thought it would be, based on the title and premise, and I actually really liked it, even though it went a little cray cray at the end with the birth secrets and family drama stuffs.  I liked how it was about character development and getting better.  Still not a fan of Lee Jang Woo though.
