Jang Na Ra plays a cute and innocent country girl who often daydreams of rescuing her prince. One day, she meets Jang Hyuk who accidentally falls into her bathtub while she was taking her bath. Not off to a good start they started arguing over the matter.
However, the story goes on to tell how Jang Nara arrives in the big city due to her plan to settle her irresponsible parents' debts. She moves into Jang Hyuk's house as a hired servant hence begins to teach the rich spoiled brat (Jang Hyuk) some manners through her down to earth scoldings and no-nonsense attitude.
This drama gets totally hilarious in many scenes where Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk's combination comes out as refreshingly cute. Jang Hyuk plays a rich and proud man who inherits his father's business (Snowy Cosmetics) but is later betrayed by his own cousin and uncle leading to his downfall. On the other hand, Jang Nara plays a girl that he meets who help him pick up the pieces in his life, from defeat to success. A very well written drama with a story many will enjoy!

I started this one a while back when I was on a Jang Hyuk drama spree. I only managed to watch about half the eps before I lost interest. I didn’t plan on dropping it though because I knew I wanted to finish it someday…

Story: One of the first romcoms to be labeled as such, it comes with all the laughs and romance one would expect. It did have a nice plot which was an added surprise. The story is mostly about how the main male character changes from a rich douchebag to a poor guy with a purpose. The first half of the drama is the developing romance and the downfall of the male lead. Then in the second half (after a time jump) it kind of turns into an office drama with the bad guys competing with the good guys. The ending was very cute.

Acting/Cast: Jang Hyuk was awesome but his character was crazy! Like he just goes nuts and starts randomly punching things around him or yelling out of nowehere quite often. He was quite interesting though. Jang Nara matched him very well chemistry wise and I loved her character because she was strong and could handle his wild temperament. The only thing I didn’t like about her character is her accent. It was just too much. As for Ryu Soo Young (My Princess, Ojakgyo Brothers) it was so weird seeing him play the villain. But he played a very good one. As for the rest of the cast I didn’t find their characters that important.

Music: Very old school but I guess it went well with this drama because it is very old!

Rewatch: I liked it so I would watch it sometime in the future.

Overall Successful Bright Girl is impressive for an older drama.

I was actually very very surprised at this drama. I first found this drama when I was searching for drama music videos on youtube, and when I saw the music video I knew I had to watch this. The storyline isn't the most unique, but it isn't half bad. The acting was perfect. The music was excellent in my opinion, and overall it's a drama I recommend everyone to watch.
