Plot

Han-Na (Kim A-Joong) is a very large girl with a warm heart. She also possesses an unbelievable voice. Han-Na wants to become a pop-singer, but due to her extra-large appearance, can only work as a faceless singer. She provides the vocals for a popular singer named Amy (Ji Seo-Yun), a beautiful young lady that can’t carry a note to save her life.

Han-Na is also in love with Amiys music producer, Sang-Joon (Joo Jin-Mo), but it's a one-sided love. One day, Han-Na is invited to Sang-Joon’s birthday party and receives a red dress from him to wear to his party. Han-Na is excited, yet scared. The dress is revealing and quite extravagant. With her very large figure, she is not sure if she can wear such an outfit. Han-Na does eventually go to the birthday party in the red dress, but is mortified when petite Amy appears in the same red dress. During the course of the birthday party, Han-Na absorbs more emotional trauma and she simply disappears for one year.

Han-Na then returns as the beautiful Jenny ...

grundig eltos she is playing the fat and skinny characters. its called makeup and prosthetics. pretty okay movie, but from watching so many Korean dramas, the emphasis on appearance has gotten tiresome and discouraging, really. movies may present as an exagerration of real life, but there is also a grain of truth in it. not living in Korea myself, I wonder about the extent of the importance of looks and other superficial things. kinda sad, and in my opinion, kind of backward, for a country "debuting" on the international stage.

Eskimo It is a really funny movie which stays very true to today's superficial society. I really like ending, despite the fact that I've already predicted that she is going to reveal the truth and the crowds are going to accept, it still so perfect. The speech wasn't quite anything intellectual, deep or worldly. It was simply so personal and emotional, and that creates an impact. I really have to give it to Kim A Jong's performance to deliver those lines with such overwhelming sentiments. I hesitated to watch this movie because I always thought that the movie was just another adult comedy aimed at lonely, single woman, but I'm truly glad I decided to watch this. Jjang!

momei Why does most of koreans (not pertaining to all koreans) care SO much about there looks?and do you think plastic surgery is the solution ?.....very low self esteem boost your confidence surgery is not the solution....

loll are Han-Na and Jenny the same person???

Sun-Hi this movie was worth the watch, i laughed and cried really enjoyed it

eltos Actually, she isn't that fat one. It's obvious that the fat Hannah is not really her. It's impossible that fat became slim, and beautiful in an instant in the movie.

Hanun Jenny and Hanna are have one actress???? whoaa~ and she was sing the songs by herself??? I realy like this movie

jayjay i cant believe i wasted my time watching this crap.

shweta loved the movie , actor is handsome

Zathuros Very real. Talks about reality of this world. Not just the world, but also humanity and life habits. This movie shows great changes on two people: Jenny (Ha-na) and Amy. I would recommend this movie to my peers, since it is also very comical.

nikky i love this movie and maria song which feels me alot

Helena To previous comment by NN: You just proved youself to be even more shallow than any of the Korean artists out there. If you wanted to make a valid point then you just failed to do it. Saying that Koreans are ugly and you can't accept them because they were ugly before the surgery makes you a hypocrite. It seems that it is you that judges people by their appearance. I personally don't care if they have surgery or not, if they were plain-looking before they became famous, or if they deny doing plastic surgery. I don't really know them enough, and neither do you, to comment on their life's decisions. The world isn't only black and white.

As for the movie, I found it quite enjoyable. But I'd recommend to just watch it without listening to others opinions too much. This is a movie and isn't meant to be taken literally.

NN Ah... I just saw the movie & I got a point of it. The point actually is about plastic surgery. The movie told us, we should accept them (Korean artists who got plastic surgery). as we know that Korea is famous of the damn plastic surgery & yeah... I do understand them who wanna be prettier & more handsome but I can't accept them. Koreans artists are 90% plastic & it shows us that many Koreans are ugly. if they were pretty, if they were handsome, why did they get the plastic surgery?? & it's ridiculous that most of them always lie. They are too shy to say that they already got plastic surgery. what the hell... just speak up & say the truth, Dudes!!

Vl One of the best asian films, Great cast plot and everything !!! I recommend it to all of you

E.B how did kim ah joong play the role of her character's former fatter self? i'm so curious o: was it costume makeup and more or was it another actor?

jp leal Hi .. mr.Kim Yong-hwa how can i get the script of your movie 200 pound beauty ? i am a college student were going to paly your movie .. please help us ?? how can i get the script why should i do ? where should i go ?

thank you Godbless

jane i love this movie it made me cry at the end.

Oepieck i think that this movie is extremely cool the story plot is simple, make me undrestand it well i guess i will give a big applause for Kim Ahjoong who plays Hanna, :D oh yeah, i cried in the end..

Lhanz hlow? i like your movie and many people are like your movie? you make a movie? i love u?

Little_star The movie shows unfortunately the reality of the world. If you do not look like they wishes you to be then you are out of the PERFECT IMAGE. I think it really show how hard life can be. Sometimes it is easier to say. I like this movie very much especially also the actor, because he recgonized her as Hanna so her character still stays the same!

Andreea The movie is mediocre, a cheap parody. Pitty that the plot didn't exploit Hanna's character. I would have liked to see a strong Hanna, who despite her appereance impose herself as a singer by her inner beauty ( positive qualities) and a good voice.

Violeta I totaly loved this movie. It has sad and tearful scenes, happy and funny... You totaly have to see it!

Nalyah Enjoyable, but a bit shallow and absurd movie. Not the best Asian rom-com I have ever seen, but it had its charms too.
