BEAUTY INSIDE (K-drama 2018)


A woman changes her appearance whenever a certain supernatural phenomenon occurs. A man falls in love with this woman.

Han Se-Kye (Seo Hyun-Jin) is a top actress. She is known as a troublemaker and the object of many rumors. Her life is a mystery, but, in reality, she suffers from an unusual phenomenon. At a certain point every month, her appearance changes to a different person. She lives one week out of every month with a different appearance. Han Se-Kye meets Seo Do-Jae (Lee Min-Ki). Seo Do-Jae is an executive at an airline company. He seems perfect with an attractive appearance and possessing smarts, but he suffers from an inability to recognize faces. He hides this disability and tries hard to memorize people by their habits and mannerisms. The only person’s face that he is able to recognize is Han Se-Kye. By meeting her, his life changes.

There are so many beauties in this drama: Love, friendship, realization, self-acceptance, and courage.

There are many good scenes: The changing appearances, the beauty of self-weakness and the importance of inner beauty.

This drama is simply a remake of the popular Korean movie The Beauty Inside, which I believe was adored by everyone who ever watched it. Well, I have read the book (Everyday), I have seen the movie and completed the drama series – each has a different approach, but conveyed only one message – Self Love and Self-Acceptance.

“If we don’t love yourself, how can we expect others to love you? If you don’t love yourself, you might accept a type of love that is less than what you deserve.”

Verdict: 8/10
