  • 200 Pounds Beauty is a 2006 South Korean musical romantic comedy film written and directed by Kim Yong-hwa.
  • Release date: December 14, 2006
  • It is based on the Japanese manga Kanna’s Big Success! by Yumiko Suzuki about an overweight ghost singer who undergoes intensive plastic surgery to become a pop sensation.
  • It was the third best-selling domestic film of 2006.
  • The movie also received several awards and nominations, including Best Actress for Kim Ah-joong at the 2007 Grand Bell Awards.


  • The story was fun, charming, funny at times, with still enough seriousness and learning points included.
  • Self-love and self-acceptance is the point of this movie. One will never be happy with their looks if they’re not happy with themselves.
  • Kim Ah-Joong did an excellent job portraying her character.
  • The music is good. (MARIAAAA AVE MARIA….)
  • I recommend this movie if you want something moving, with both cute and funny moments.

My Overall rating – 8.0/10 (It has a well-balanced dose of drama and comedy. Overall, a fun movie to watch.)
