nice movie. korean movies are so good in a way that they are able to balance romance, humor, drama, and sex. scoring is also very good, same with the cinematography and editing of this movie. in addition to the fact that it has a good story. =)

Hilariously entertaining specially to those people with "Scientific Beauties" who can relate to the story.
How come it's hard for a Nutritionally-Enhanced Lady to have a happy ending?

I understand that physical beauty and size is super important in Korea and I respect that, but couldn't things go right just once for the big girl? Girls everywhere shouldn't be taught that plastic surgery is a fix all for life's problems, they should be taught to respect themselves, and to love their bodies no matter what cards fate has dealt them. This world is becoming all the more superficial and movies like these are putting the final nails in the coffin. The music was brilliant and so was the acting but the overall message behind this film kills what they were trying to do here.

The price of being beautiful and skinny. Very sweet and sad movie. Actress acting were quite good not so the main male actor, his acting was fairly average. Overall a very enjoyable romantic comedy to watch.

It kinda sends the wrong message that you gotta be thin to be beautiful. :/

Sebenernya sich film nya bagus n' lucu tapi ada negatifnya juga. Kisah yang putus asa, si cewek yang gendut harus operasi plastik agar bisa cantik dan di sukai si cowok yang juga merupakan manajer nyanyi nya. Habis operasi plastik, ia cukup tersiksa, karena tubuhnya sakit kalau dipegang. Dan pada saat ia terkenal, ia gag punya waktu buat temennya lagi, ternyata terkenal gag selamanya positif. Meskipun gendut, tapi dia punya suara bagus. Miris juga sich liat dia lipsink (dia yang nyanyi di belakang panggung, dan artis yang ada di depan panggung melipsink suara dia). Gw bingung, sebenernya manajernya itu udah suka ma ceweknya pas dia gendut atau enggak? Dia juga sempat gag mengakui ayahnya yang agak gila. Tapi diakhir cerita ia menyesali operasi plastik dan perbuatannya sama ayah dan temennya. Kisah ini udah umum, dimana gadis gendut dan buruk rupa menjelma jd putri cantik dan dicintai lelaki pujaannya. Cukup pasaran. Klu gitu sich, lelakinya cuma cinta ma wajah dia aja donk, ma casing luar doank, bangga kah?! Soundtracknya keren.

Makes it seem like getting plastic surgery will make those who previously rejected you fall in love with you. Such bs.

I put off watching this for a long, long time as I thought I'd hate it. The movie does raise some awkward questions like why did she have to change herself so dramatically in order to achieve success? That aside, I thought it was a great watch and it's not often that I am so captivated by what I'm watching on the screen. Even less so to have me bawling my eyes out at the end. And this movie did both of those.

I liked the Ave Maria song more than the actual movie.

There is character development and a tinge of Asian sentiment but it is far too cutesy and generic for its own good.

I do like this movie, don't get me wrong. It offers lighthearted unrealistic low comedy (mostly regarding how various males are stunned by a beautiful female) and (most importantly) it won't bore you. It focuses on how aesthetic physical standards imposed by showbiz figures and society affects a person. It does not try to delve into the issue, though. It mainly circles on the self-esteem of the individual and how it can be satisfied with social acceptance. Meh. Not that deep but the premise of the movie is feel-good enough.

It may be a good movie but it only shows
that if you are fat and ugly no one or nobody
will like you. It is very sad because when the fat
girl turned out to be a beautiful woman that's
when someone likes her.

film yang realistis. mungkin pernah terjadi pada beberapa wanita di dunia. film ini juga mengajarkan untuk menerima diri sendiri DAN orang lain apa adanya, bukan dari penampilan melainkan dari pribadinya.

Film korea yang sempat menarik perhatian karena temanya operasi plastik yang sudah menjadi hal biasa di Korea Selatan. Hanna, wanita gemuk tapi memiliki suara yang sangat indah. Penampilannya tentu tidak bisa membuatnya menjadi penyanyi disana. Itulah mengapa dia menyanyi di belakang panggung untuk pop star Ammy. Hanna sendiri jatuh cinta dengan Sang-jun, produser Ammy. Tapi suatu ketika Hanna secara tidak sengaja mendengar percakapan Sang-jun dengan Ammy, dimana Sang-jun berkata buruk tentang penampilannya dan hanya karena Hanna memiliki suara yang bagus makanya Hanna tetap dipertahankan. Hanna patah hati dan memutuskan bunuh diri, tapi gagal. Akhirnya dia memutuskan untuk pergi ke dokter bedah plastik , dan selama setahun menghilang dari peredaran sehingga Ammy pun tidak bisa muncul sebagai popstar karena tidak ada yang menggantikannya menyanyi.

Setahun kemudian, jeng jeng muncullah Hanna dengan penampilannya yang baru dengan nama Jenny. Dia mengikuti audisi mencari pengganti Hanna untuk menjadi penyanyi belakang panggung untuk Ammy. Suaranya yang merdu membuat Sang-jun terkesima dan memutuskan mengorbitkan Jenny sebagai penyanyi berikutnya. Sambutannya meriah, Ammy sirik, terjadi konflik dengan sahabat dan ayahnya, dan seterusnya...

Ceritanya mengingatkan saya pada obsesi wanita Korea saat ini, pada operasi plastik untuk mendapatkan mata yang lebih besar, hidung yang lebih mancung, kaki yang lebih jenjang, seperti idola mereka. Pria-pria yang berpikir bahwa tidak apa-apa wanita melakukan operasi plastik, selama itu bukan pacarnya (ha!).

Pada awalnya ceritanya lucu, mudah dipahami, tapi menengah sampai ending jalan ceritanya malah kabur. Ada hal-hal yang ga logis, tapi mungkin memang sengaja tidak dijelaskan karena tidak berperan besar di dalam cerita. Yang membuat saya tersentuh justru saat Hanna (atau Jenny) menyanyi "Byul" saat audisi, suaranya yang powerful membuatku merinding! Scene lain adalah dimana ayah Hanna memaksakan diri untuk datang ke konser Jenny dan nyaris diusir petugas keamanan karena mengacaukan acara.

Sayangnya, saya tak menangkap inti cerita yang (sepertinya) berisi 'pada akhirnya inner beauty yang bertahan'. Temanku balik bertanya, "Pada akhirnya Hanna terkenal dan dicintai saat dia berwujud langsing kan? Bagaimana jika Hanna kembali ke wujud semula, apa para fansnya tetap menyukainya dan Sang-jun tetap mencintainya?" Big question, even I don't know the answer...

this one is surprisingly funny and entertaining. but i can't help think that the movie doesn't condemn plastic surgery but instead promotes it. she can only be happy if she's thin and pretty? sends the wrong message to women out there. but i do like the part where the guy admits that she was important to him even when she was fat and ugly. he loved her even when she looked like that but was probably too embarrassed to date her openly. ah men and their obsession with looks! but i guess i gave this movie an extra star because of jin mo ju. he's a cutie!
