200 Pounds Beauty

Sunday, October 24, 2010 10 Comments A+ a-


200 Pounds Beauty is a South Korean film about an overweight girl, Hanna with an amazing voice who works as a phone sex employee and ghost singer. She underwent an extreme plastic surgery, from head-to-toe, because of being heartbroken when she learned what her crush, the music company's director, Sang-jun, thinks of her as. Now, she is in disguised as Jenny, a Korean-American from California to become a pop sensation.

My friend introduced this to me during summer but I didn't watch it. During our meeting in my classmate's house, she told us that we should watch this first while waiting for the others to come. And so it happened. We were not able to finish watching it so I watched it in my brother's PSP way after that.

Hanna is talented and her voice is wonderful. But, she can't show her talent to everyone because people tend to judge others most of the time because of their physical appearance. So I guess I can't blame her for having plastic surgery. But I guess, it's also Hanna's fault for being like that. She shouldn't lack discipline on herself. She should learn to control herself in eating, unless she has some sickness that caused her to become like that.
 
But anyway, I don't recommend plastic surgery to anyone. Although I think it's just fine, being yourself is still the best and appreciated the most. You may think that you don't have the looks, but if you have the guts to show everyone what you've got, then you have proven yourself worthy. If possible, you can still achieve that look in a natural way, right! Just have discipline, respect and acceptance in your body and don't go far beyond your limit just to achieve it.

On the other hand, I really love the song Maria played in this movie. Check out the music here and tell me what you think.

Yea, I've also seen this before and I also LOVE that song Maria.. Sometimes I just sing it randomly ^^p I love it how the music and her voice blends in strongly^^, Although I don't usually watch cinema one(I think that's also under ABS company)but when I was channel hopping I landed on cinema one because it was showing 200 pounds beauty(Tagalog dubbed)...

[FYI I'm a kdrama addict and for your next kdrama I recommend you the movie "100 Days With Mr. Arrogant"]
