200 Pounds Beauty

200 Pounds Beauty is Korean movie. Lighthearted, witty, and bitingly funny, surprise box office hit 200 Pounds Beauty has become one of the top ten grossing films of all time and the highest grossing romantic comedy ever. Based on a Japanese comic by Suzuki Yumiko, the film revolves on a topic all too familiar in Korea: plastic surgery. As the ghost singer for pop idol Ammy and a popular phone sex partner, the bright and lovable Kang Hanna attracts everyone with her beautiful voice. But in real life, she is overlooked and made fun of because of her obesity. She secretly likes manager Sang Jun, but does not have the courage to tell him. When a malicious joke leaves her humiliated and heartbroken, Hanna makes a drastic decision: full-body plastic surgery. One year later, a slim and drop-dead gorgeous Hanna (now going by Jenny) saunters into auditions, and easily wins over Sang Jun with her beautiful looks and voice. With her newfound beauty, Hanna gets everything she’s ever wanted, including fame and love. But what will everyone think when they discover her true identity, and the secret behind her transformation?
