Dong Gun has a serious complex of sorts. He has low self-esteem about his appearance, particularly a scar that sits next to right eye-brow. His world changes when he drives down a street and is flagged down by a beautiful girl that gets into his car. The girl, named Hae Joo, is blind and mistakes Dong Gun's car for a taxi cab and asks him to take drive her to another part of Seoul. He immediately falls for Hae Joo and realizes that Hae Joo's blindness would be perfect for him and his low self-esteem. Dong Gun soon becomes Hae Joo's eyes, taking her to various places and describes what everything looks like to her. When Hae Joo asks Dong Gun what he looks like, Dong Gun inexplicably describes someone from his high school that he looked up to. His name was Jun Ha. They soon fall for each other and see each other day for 3 years. Everything changes once Hae Joo receives a phone call from her doctor. The doctor tells her that a donor has been found and she can soon see again, once she has an operation. Dong Gun again feels like the Beast and he doesn't know what to do once the Beauty gets her vision back. Things are further complicated when Dong Gun's high school friend, Jun Ha, randomly crosses path with Hae Joo and falls for her as well. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

To start off - I loved this movie! It was really funny in parts, different than what I'd first expected of the movie, but in a good way (: I'm definitely counting this movie as one of my favorites! Hae-Joo is a blind girl who gets surgery and is able to see for the first time. Dong Geun is her boyfriend who didn't expect this to happen, considering he told her that he was a good-looking guy...when he falls beneath the standards. Although, IMO, he isn't that horrible looking, he may not be the best looking guy but he's not ugly. Embarrassed he hides away from her. The events that take place in this movie make you laugh and fall in love with the characters.

I previously saw Shin Min Ah in My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho and I loved her acting as Mi Ho in that drama. Her role in this movie is different, but her acting is really well done. I've never seen Kim Kang Woo or Ryoo Seung Bum in anything else, but I really enjoyed watching them in this movie (:

The music isn't anything special, nothing really stood out to me.

I definitely can see myself watching this movie again, I loved it (:

Overall - watch it! If you're looking for something cute and funny it's definitely worth looking into (:

It's a fun movie to watch with a very interesting storyline.

Although it can get a little hectic at times, this is a beautiful story dotted with humour, showing us that love is the same whether we live in a dark or a light world.

I would definitely recommend it!
