Kim No-jin confirmed to appear in MBC’s ‘When I Was the Prettiest’

Kim No-jin will be appearing in MBC’s upcoming drama When I Was the Prettiest.

The romance series tells the complicated love triangle between a ceramic artist Oh Ye-jin, played by Im Soo-hyang (Graceful Family), and brothers Seo Hwan and Seo Jin, played by Ji Soo (My First First Love 2) and Ha Seok-jin (Your House Helper), respectively. Seo Hwan is an architectural designer while his older brother Seo Jin is a race car driver. As brothers who love the same woman, things are already complicated. But things become even more difficult when Seo Jin’s ex-girlfriend Carrie Jung, played by Hwang Seung-eon (XX), enters the picture.

Kim No-jin will play the role of Lee Ji-hee, the cousin of Ye-jin. The actress last appeared in the medical series Dr. Romantic 2, which featured stars Han Suk-kyu, Lee Sung-kyung, and Ahn Hyo-seop. Kim also previously starred in The Banker (2019) and Queen of Mystery 2 (2018).

The cast held their first script reading back in April. The series is directed by Oh Kyung-hoon, who also directed Home Sweet Home (2010) and Bad Thief, Good Thief (2017), and written by Jo Hyun-kyung, who wrote More Than a Maid (2014–2015) and Grand Prince (2018).

When I Was the Prettiest (also My Prettiest Moments) aims to premiere in August and will take over MBC’s Wednesday and Thursday 9:30 p.m. slot, which is currently occupied by She Knows Everything and will soon be replaced by Chip In on July 22.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
