200 Pounds Beauty (2006)

Korean title: 미녀는 괴로워  (Mi-nyeo-neun Goi-ro-wa)

Director: Kim Yong-hwa (김용화)
Screenplay: Noh Hye-yeong (노혜영)
Kim Ah-joong (김아중)
Joo Jin-mo (주진모)


This movie was screened here in Malaysia recently. Not many Korean movies make it to the big screen on our shores. But this one did. It’s very watchable as both leads look absolutely fabulous! (Although, somewhat “unnatural” – if you get what i mean. Like some correction has been done somewhere.)

Kim Ah-joong is Hanna in the movie. Hanna is an overweight and physically unattractive woman who has a good heart and sweet voice. Men love her voice. You could say that she has it all – except in the looks department. Later, she transforms herself into a stunning beauty via plastic surgery and the “package” is complete. But what would the man of her dreams do when he finds out that she is not 100% natural?

Watch the movie to find out!

    I saw it and absolutely loved and I’m not even asian (not that it matters). I also got my siblings to watch it as well. I love when she sings Ave Maria on stage.
