Storyline

"Be Not Born Beautiful" ("Better Be Born Lucky") is the story of Katya, a girl who works as a secretary at the company ZIMALETTO. While mother nature gave her a sharp brain, a wonderful character and a pure soul, no man has as of yet payed attention to her. However Katya's plain looks don't keep her from dreaming about love and happiness... She tries to go out and live, trusting on her remarkable inner beauty and high qualifications, but the cruel world, used to meet and judge people by their looks, is unjust to her.

Horrible. Nothing compared to the original.
4 May 2018 | by ae240307See all my reviews

I'm sorry but I think this is a horrible adaptation. It just copied like the original one, unlike Ugly Betty which had so many difference. The main actress is okay, but the main actor really bad, nothing compared to Jorge Abello (who play as Armando Mendoza) in the original version. Don't watch this version, watch the original.
