The plot was very unique -a "baby faced" 34 year old women has to lie about her age in order to get a position she wants in the fashion world- and I thought it was a really cute drama. However in the middle I got a little bored with all the design competitions, as they got repetive and a bit old. Also the conflict with they guy's father and her father was read more a bit exasperating.

The acting was very good on all parties, and I thought the male lead was so perfect at being annoying and immature one minute to really sweet and thoughtful the next. The music was fine and I would probably rewatch this drama if I ever have more free time, althought I would skip a couple of the middle episodes. I thought this could have been done in fewere episodes for more of a "wow" factor and it would have made the plot less draggy in the middle. If you're looking for a not too serious and cute drama this is the way to go.

I've rewatched it for a view times now. And I don't really remember my first impression. So I'm not sure whether it was very thrilling watching it for the first time. But overall, I liked it. It was interesting and I enjoyed it.

As I hope this review will be helpfull to others in deciding whether to watch "Baby-faced Beauty" or not, I made a list of the topics of this drama read more and my rates for some of the topics.

37% Work/Bussiness: Fashion Designing (7/10)
Ofcourse it is about the process of designing, getting ideas, drawing, choosing the materials an so on. But it's not just that. It's also about how the antagonists always try to prevent the protagonists from success with dirty tricks and how the protagonists overcome it.

35% Romance (7/10)
It might not be a thrilling romance, since we can guess who she'll end up with. But I liked it. It's quite interesting to see how the feelings of the 2 male leads grow. At some point there was the topic about the age difference, but as I see it, it was not a huge barrier for the romantic relationship.

    if it wasn't for Yoon Seo I would have liked it much more. She's just too hateful.
    But the story itself and the other actor were really awesome. I loved them

    I watched this while it was airing and actually stuck with it. the romance is cute -not your typical male lead. The fact that jang na ra looks so young and does have a baby face. I always looked forward to seeing the designed clothes.
    This drama is light and has a lot of sweetness to it. if you're board and have time to watch give it a try.

    I AM SOOOOO GLAD I KEPT WATCHING! Although it was hard to keep going from episodes 1-3 because I really wanted to kill the female lead (I thought she was too weak) I kept watching & the rest of the episodes kept my interest. They were clever, funny & full of twists. I would watch this drama again.

    Sometimes tiny bit too childish and cheesy...but makes you smile.
    Its not shining romcom for teens, more like glowing romcom for family.

    I never realized how Choi Daniel's characters always annoyed me. I saw him in The Musical and the first episode of School 2013. It wasnt until then that I realized he was the same guy that's been annoying in ALL of these shows!!
