If you can get past the silliness of the basic premise, it hangs together quite well. There's an effort to make points about he importance of knowing yourself and how we should overlook conventional beauty standards, but in fact it just points up that this is a society where looks outrank almost everything else, so it rather works against its own efforts to place value on inner beauty rather than physical. Joo Sang Wook as Han Tae Hee is charming and never disappoints. Han Ye Seul as Sara wasn't my idea of a beauty (more anorexic than gorgeous), but the two developed excellent chemistry. The three villains were nicely creepy without going overboard about it. So, solid cast, well developed plot, good romance show all around.
Excellent movie, but heartbreaking. Brilliant performances. Watch with a pile of handkerchiefs ready for the end. Not sure i can watch it a second time because of the heartbreak..
