200 Pounds Beauty Plot Review
If you will be given a chance to be beautiful but not talented, or talented but not beautiful, what would you choose? Well, Kang Han-Na says both.
In 200 Pounds Beauty, you’ll realize how society defines beauty. Kudos to the writer of this film, it really tells a relatable true-to-life story. It also conveys the difference with the treatments that were, based on how beautiful a certain individual is. The sequence of the story was well-plotted, it started with a problem and ended up with a solution. The climax of the story will surely lift your emotions up. Also, the comedy scene balanced the chronology of this film
I highly recommend this movie for those who want to watch a true-to-life romcom movie. It will melt your heart and make you laugh at the same time.
