"Did I become a butterfly in my dream or did I become me in a butterfly's dream."

For a moment, I thought it's going to be one of those cheesy and sensational plotlines with the usual stuck-up chaebol, the very reason that has dissuaded me from watching this till now.

But Beauty Inside deserves much better than that. Beneath all of the Hallyu star and rich chaebol glamour, the drama explores the dark side of media and social perceptions in a nouveau and refreshing context. It proves that inner beauty MATTERS as we witness the female protagonist battling her identity crisis in a society full of piranhas that are constantly preying on her nemesis while scandalously saving the day by protecting those in need.

The pairing is irrefutably perfect, like that of My Love from the Star or What's Wrong with Secretary Kim. It is cynical at first but, because of that, it has the opportunity to become extremely sweet and charming. For once, a rom-com is able to survive and flourish without a love-triangle to pull the tension.

The OSTs are to die for with K.Will's explosive vocal, Davichi's wistful melody and a slight momentous twist featuring up-and-coming artists like Rothy, Vincent and 2morro.

Beauty inside borrows only the protagonist's condition from the movie. It also uses the 2018 favourite theme of inability to recognize faces theme. And therefor we get a mash up to produce a love story that was cute and funny at first, intense in the middle, boring in the end. Actually, the last episodes were unnecessary, as nothingh really happened. The performances were all good, and the couple had chemistry, which helped with the love story to develop. Again, however, the script didn't help. So, six out of ten.
