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.

Same kind of feel in both dramas. The female starts of small and weak and gets stronger towards the end. Both are designers.

Both revolve around making both the female lead always competes with the 2nd female lead who tries every trick to win!

    It just dawned on me that her name is literally So-Young! Is this a play on English words?? I've seen similar name-playing on foreign words, the best example in "Kill Me, Heal Me" the heroine is named Oh Ri Jin (origin) and her brother Oh Ri-On (Orion).

    I like this drama sooooooo muchhhhhh, what i like the most of course it's love story between choi daniel n jang nara. I can see how much he loves her, and she loves him too, but she just think that their ages differences is the biggest problem. But when choi daniel came to know about that, he still loves her, and jang nara shows her feeling towards him at the end. And i like how daniel choi is trying to help her no matter what and if i being her, of course i will love him too. And the last thing that i like about this drama is the hero is not pictured as a veryyyyyy rich man, but they still have a sweet date like an ordinary couple:)

    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

      Not just as the character, I have never liked Ryu Jin, he's always an overbearingly controlling, arrogant prick in all the drama's I've seen with him in them, and this drama is no different...

    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.
