Kim Woojin, the protagonist (who was played by more than 60 actors altogether), has been waking up as a completely different person every morning since he was 18. He turns into a young child, an old person, a girl or a boy and even someone with a different nationality ranging anywhere from Japanese to American when he wakes up.

The reason for it? It is unknown. All he knows is that it is impossible for him to continue living a normal life, and that he must keep this as a secret from others. Only two people in the whole world understand him: his mother and his best friend. He lives his life hiding underneath a shield he built himself, working as a famous furniture designer named Alex, afraid of the consequences if his secret is exposed.

Woojin, who is lonely, happens to meet Hong Isoo (played by Han Hyo-joo) in a furniture store and falls in love at first sight, so he decides to add one more person onto that list of his. Now his task is to enlighten the woman he loves with his ever-changing appearance, which even he has found hard to accept.

He waits several days to wake up as a good-looking guy in his 20s before he gathers the courage to ask Isoo out on a date, fluttering the hearts of many women who watched the film.

“Do you prefer sushi or steak? Actually… I practiced a lot of times for today. Because I really wanted to take you out for dinner,” was Woojin’s speech, which later became a big hit in Korea.

The movie claims that its message to the audience is, “I love you, no matter who you are today.” However, it has received criticism as audiences questioned whether the movie’s title is Beauty Inside or Beauty Outside. This criticism resulted from the “more good-looking” actors getting much more screentime and playing the most important roles associating with the female lead actress, such as when Woojin (played by Park Seojun) asks Isoo out, or the scene when Isoo shows off her boyfriend Woojin (played by Lee Jinwook) to her friends at a party. Seojun and Jinwook are both very handsome actors.

“The movie has too many good-looking actors for us to see the true beauty inside of the person. Woojin magically turns into a very handsome man at important moments, which makes it hard for us to relate to,” an online commenter complained.

On the other hand, Beauty Inside has been praised by countless people who watched the film. They all agreed that even though there were over 60 actors who played the same character, all of the acting was superb, without being distracting. They could be immersed in the movie even when the actors wereconstantly changing. 

Beauty Inside also received high recognition for its beautiful mise en scene(the arrangement of scenery and stage properties in a play) and background music, which made it possible for the correct atmosphere to be created at certain situations, making the movie more relatable.

The scenery was captured at many different beautiful locations. I personally found the furniture factory room where Woojin makes his furniture a very beautiful, quiet and cosy place because of the excellent mise en scene. The room had a yellow tone to it, creating the warm atmosphere which made theaudience want to be there as well. 

While being in the room, a calm music was playing in the background – not too loud to scatter the audiences’ concentration, but loud enough to be heard and to create the atmosphere. This evoked a romantic mood between the two characters.

Although many people complain about the movie’s title, saying it would have been better if it weren’t called Beauty Inside, it was a great movie that can be viewed by the whole family on a Saturday afternoon.

Check out Beauty Inside to warm your heart and to perhaps find the true meaning of love.
