  • Before talking about how this drama series encourages us to think about how beauty is beyond physical attributes of a human being, I would like to mention the fabulous portrayal of a close knit family relationships in this series. I loved how her father found her pretty regardless, I love how her mother was supportive of her decision.

  • Apart from that, I loved the romance. It was so cute and mushy. A romance that focuses more on love for the inner beauty of a person is the best!

  • The side characters have their own part in the series by working with their inferiority complexes. The series not only focuses on beauty with society’s mindset of having a good face but also being body conscious in an extreme way.

    1. It totally is. I loved how some K-dramas aren’t just plain romance and delve into a deeper meaningful message for us to ponder upon.

    1. It is a bit at times. But I wanted to see how this ends and it dint disappoint. I loved the message it had and its quite something that girls are worried about especially in their teens.
