Adapting from the Korean Version of She was Pretty (그녀는 예뻤다), this Chinese version, Pretty Li Hui Zhen (漂亮的李慧珍) has about 36 episodes (from what I found online). This is more than 2 times of the Korean version.
As excited as I am about wanting to watch Pretty Li Hui Zhen (漂亮的李慧珍), I guess I will wait till it has completed at least 30 episodes before I start. After all, the agony of waiting after each episode is something that I certainly am not looking forward to. With so many great dramas in 2016 that I have yet catch up, I guess, the wait would be worthwhile.
In the meantime, do enjoy some of the stills images of Pretty Li Hui Zhen (漂亮的李慧珍) that I managed to find online.
