WTH Wednesdays: 200 Pounds of Beauty

Okay, we know that the Korean entertainment industry is pretty open about their liberal use of plastic surgery, but this movie is insane.

Here's the breakdown:

Our leading lady is a pretty big girl, but she has an incredible voice.

She's a singer that stays backstage and has another idol pretend she's singing since our lead girl isn't physically "fit" enough to be an idol.
She's also a phone sex worker?! Like, she's sort of a prostitute but only...on the phone...hahahhaha
She's in love with a man that she works with, but after being humiliated because of her size for the last time, she uses all of her money to get basically a completely new body and face.

She's in recovery for years and when she comes out no one recognizes her.

She auditions to become a singer, and suddenly becomes a big star (no surprises here)

But then it comes out that she's totally faking her identity! People are PISSED!!! ALSO the man she's in love with finds out and is like "wth" (I won't ruin the plot so I'll stop here!)

I won't ruin the ending but its really, really interesting how they portray plastic surgery in this film!

You can check out the full thing Eng Sub here on Youtube :D

Who else thought this was...odd?

I liked this movie but I know it may be wrong but I just didn't want her to end up with the guy just because he didn't like her when she was 200 pounds and I don't think he deserved her...
@Kamiamon exactly how i felt! i wasnt mad about her plastic surgery, i was mad that everyone was just like "oh thats okay you lied but now you're talented AND beautiful so we forgive you"
I felt a little sad watching this one. It's sad for the girl & I felt bad for anyone who struggling with not being beautiful. It basically says get plastic surgery because other people will forgive you since you've become beautiful. Sad. And the relationship with the male lead angered me for the obvious reasons.
i actually love this film. a lot. it was sweet. granted it would've been nice if she didn't have to change, but also i like the look into plastic surgery. and i think the movie came out at a time when admitting to plastic surgery was still kinda taboo, if im not wrong.
I love this movie. I can't remenber how many times I cried. That's how beautiful it was. The end was the best though. Who ever didn't watch it yet should. Its free on youtube.

Korean Movie Club: Silenced
Trigger warning: Physical and sexual abuse of minors. The plot: Kang In-ho (Gong Yoo) is a new art teacher at Benevolence Academy, a deaf school for children (Based on the real-life Gwangju Inhwa School). He's excited to teach his new students, but they all seem afraid of him and even scared. In-ho does not give up, and eventually the students start to open up to him - and tell him horrifying things. The children are being physically and sexually abused by their teachers. When he decides to fight for the children’s rights and expose the crimes being committed at the school, he soon realizes the school’s principal and teachers, and even the police, prosecutors and churches in the community are actually trying to cover up the truth According to its summary: It is based on actual events that took place at Gwangju Inhwa School for the hearing-impaired, where young deaf students were the victims of repeated sexual assaults by faculty members over a period of five years in the early 2000s The aftermath: The film looks at both the crimes, as well as the legal battle that followed. It showed the true story that the teachers who ABUSED THEIR STUDENTS were let off with minimal punishment. The nation was pissed. After its release, there was so much outrage from the citizens who watched the film, that the investigations were reopened. The demand for legislative reform reached all the way to the National Assembly, where a revised bill, dubbed the Dogani Bill, was passed in late October 2011 to abolish the limitations for sex crimes against minors and the disabled. I haven't seen it yet and will need to be emotionally ready, but I do want to see a film that sparked such a big change in Korea! You can watch it here on Dramanice. Is anyone else interested or has seen it before?

Taeyang Thursday 🌼
What kind of Drama woud you put members into??? This week we are doing something a little out of the box and sharing what Korean Drama each of the members may be in. Featuring Taeyang, the man who is calm and a total sweetheart and heart throb. In my book what Drama could he be a good one for him. Tempted is a KDrama that looks at the temptation in love, in different ways looking at several different feelings that involve love. What is the Drama about? Many people wish to be the great tempter who has power over love. However, once they actually experience love, they begin to understand that what they once wished for was foolish and useless. In this drama, all the characters are in love just like us. To be frank, they all desire someone. The desires to love and to be loved clash with each other as the story unravels. Some regret the mask they hid behind in front of love and express their disappointment and anger to others. Through love, some learn to love themselves while others get too hurt to stand back on their feet. But then again, through many hardships, some get back on their feet and learn to love once again. Tempted hopes for the viewers to laugh, cry, and go through these stories together. Just like how everyone's interpretation of love is different, this drama wishes that we can all love passionately without any comparisons. I can see him saying both these lines! You think this is a fitting Drama for Taeyang. . .

Save Me 2 (Currently Airing!)
The Second Season of Save Me! This season (as far as I know) will not connect to the first season. Episodes: 16 Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Psychological Rating: 15+ Network: OCN Status: Currently Airing Aired: May 8, 2019 - June 27, 2019 Main Cast: Chun Ho Jin, Uhm Tae Goo, Lee Som, Kim Young Min Synopsis: With their municipality scheduled to be flooded to make way for the construction of a new dam, the devout denizens of a rural village have placed their faith in Choi Gyung Seok, a church elder who promises to relocate the flock. Choi tells the villagers they will build a church and a new housing development where they will all be able to live together after the town is completely submerged. He alsosays that only 144,000 people can go to heaven, and that church offerings are mandatory if one wants to "secure their spot." Even the town's much-revered Reverend Sung, a young and good-looking minister who seemingly has the ability to heal the sick, approves of Choi's plans. Behind his guise of devotion, however, Choi is a practiced con man posing as a representative of a fake religion; his true aim is to defraud the villagers of their resettlement compensation. The only obstacle to the scheme is Kim MinChul, a skeptical outcast who accidentally discovers evidence of Choi's past misdeeds and suddenly finds himself becoming the center of resistance against the church institution.
