Junita, nicknamed Junior, did plastic surgery because people said her face was fat. Without knowing that she was allergic to chemicals, it ruined her face by causing acne everywhere. It would take a year to fully recover. After the incident, nobody wanted to get close to her and whoever saw her would call her a ghost-face. She couldn't stand it so she begged her mom to let her study at a college read morein the countryside to avoid the social life of Bangkok, and to have face treatment done by a doctor recommended by the Ugly Duckling forum. And that's where she meets Suea, a handsome, flirty, penniless senior, who is the first person to sincerely befriend her despite her looks.

I went into this drama with no expectations. I just thought the title was cute. What I discovered was too much cuteness. Mook was a great heroine. She was sweet, but complex enough you could really identify with her. Push was everything. He was charming, funny, sweet and a total pain in the ass! Their chemistry was undeniable. The best support was Bee. He's the friend I wish I had. Seriously people read more watch this. It's short and sweet, but complicated enough to keep you engaged. Plus you'll fall in love with the cast!

This was a completely fun Thai drama I've become a avid fan of Puttichai Put's growing body of work and his performance in this will not let you down. I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the dramas in this four part series. Fun storyline and fun casting are poured into this. I was able to find it translated on youtube I hope at some point Viki will add this into read more their line up for I really hope they expand soon on their collection of dramas / lakorns from Thailand.

The music in this pretty much had like it's main theme song that carried through it. But as far as rewatch value goes it's one of those fun and short dramas you could watch again and again for it didn't have annoying crazy girls or overly evil mother or any of that it was just a fun watch on young relationships and friendships I'd give it a 10 on it being a current view on Thailand dating.

They're both very cute and romantic and the same actor stars in both dramas.
Recommended by Lisz
Both light hearted, enjoyable dramas with eye candy PUSH. Situated in a college background, childish yet intimate romance.

    Joo has horrid taste in men. Her first boyfriend can't handle her when her face is broken out in pimples. Her second boyfriend can't handle her when she's beautiful. The last 3 episodes really ruined P'Suea for me. I hate that the writers turned him into the ultimate Nice Guy™- disrespectful and pushy. It's a shame because I really enjoyed the rest of the drama. This is one of the better Lakorns I have watched.

      Yea, that makes sense. I could see why the producers would do that.

    This drama is a good watch it does get draggy in the last few eps, but it's worth watching. It's also my first time seeing a male lead that's not homophobic and isn't afraid to be affectionate towards a gay male, as a friend.

    Surprisingly cute. My first Thai drama. Not really my style but much better than I expected. Great acting for the male lead and a good performance for the main girl too.

    fluffy and sweet!! the main guy is soo charming and his acting is a breath of fresh air... the main girl's acting is still raw though, she lacks in the crying department... but the chemistry of the leads made it fun to watch... the story got a bit dragging towards the end but overall still well paced... bonus points for the gay friend whos acting was superb! BTW the main guy just became my fave thai actor...

    I don't know why but jo kwon keeps popping up every time I see the main guy acting. But than in ep 9, I found that he looks like BamBam. Then again, not.

    That stupid main girl ruined the whole drama for me... Her attitude was ridiculous.
    Bee and P'Suea are the only reason why I was able to finish the drama.

    Okay i have finished it, reasons to watch: Bee and Seua lol their characters were the best, overall it was okay I enjoyed the first half and would have enjoyed the second half more if Joo didn't get on my nerves so much. The problems I had with it probably doesn't annoy anyone else so i would recommend it for people who want a short light sweet drama. Though I wouldn't recommend people who feel like they're "ugly" or have acne to watch it, it might worsen their self esteem because honestly it drills in the idea that if you have any sort of acne or even breakouts you're ugly and not to mention it just shows that as always pretty people go with other pretty people. I'm sorry everyone for all the comments lol I normally don't comment this much but this drama surprising has me thinking about a lot.

      Agreed. It's very similar to the concept of "don't judge a book by its cover" videos which went stupidly viral across the Internet not too long ago. It's honestly upsetting to see how society perceives the definition of "beauty" to be simply generalised into imperfections, blemishes, monobrows, etc. It further encourages a stigma that is beyond unrealistic. Although this drama emphasised how Seua sincerely liked Junior for her personality, it is again somewhat unrealistic to an extent - in the end, the two turned out to be extremely wealthy and possessed divine beauty; if this is what society describe to be a "perfect" couple, then I am ashamed of the society that we live in today. This drama was nonetheless a very short and sweet enjoyable watch but it definitely signalled a lot of red lights for me.
