    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 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

    My ratings for this are all over the place, which isn't a surprise given that my thoughts on Baby-faced Beauty is equally as scattered. In an attempt to organize my opinion, I'll just run through the given categories.

    Story: I gave this a 6 for story instead of the intended 5 because the story is what initially drew me to BFB. Age is an intrinsic part of how Koreans socialize with one another through their actions and communication. And so it was interesting to watch a 34 year old designer-wannabe struggle to play the role of the complacent youngster who's just a tad bit too opinionated when drunk. However, and this might be just cultural difference talking, her deference bordered on aggravating spinelessness.

    Rewatch Value: Daniel Choi/10.

    If I were to re-watch BFB, I'd do it for him and the cutesy couple stuff with Na Ra. <3

    i hated the president character, he made yun seo waiting for like 10 years, and then what? '' he wants to find someone that he loves as a women not only searching for a mum for his daughter'' and then he wants to have lee seo young eventhough she has a boyfriend, and when he helped her with the red dress he obliged her to stay and dance with him because '' she must have a sense of loyalty''

    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.

    hahahahha omg daniel choi - epic catwalk
  • Raincat Jan 13, 2013
    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!!

    I skipped so much of this drama especially the later half, it just dragged a little bit too much. AND I honestly wanted her to end up with the CEO, there was a better chance that their love story would work because shes a designer under his company and she was acting all motherly with his kid.
