Synopsis: The management company of the idol group A.N.JELL insisted on adding a new singer to the group as the lead vocal, Tae Kyung's voice was hurting. However,the new member, Mi Nam, had to go to the States to repair a botched eye job just before signing the contract. His agent came up with the idea of having his twin sister, Mi Nyu,to stand in for him and pretend that she was her brother. The two of them grew up in an orphanage and Mi Nyu, who was all set to become a nun, agreed to this charade as she didn't want to spoil her brother's chance of fame which would make it easier to look for their mother.


My Rating: 8/10

My Thoughts: Well, I really enjoyed the drama. It was really funny and entertaining and though the concept wasn't something new, it was pretty good. I really liked the mystery of Go Min Nam's mom and the show was a really good blend of drama and comedy.

I really don't like Park Shin Hye. I don't like Go Mi Nam either. Shin Hye is really not a good actress. At first I thought that maybe it was the character, but I saw Heartstrings and she's the same in that. And Go Mi Nam was such a crybaby and clueless. She was one hell of an annoying character!

I didn't like Tae Kyung at first. But he grew on me. I think Jang Geun Suk is a really good actor! He had to do some pretty embarrassing scenes but he did them with perfection. And I loved his 'cry' scene! In the beginning I used to hate that duck face of his but I ended up loving it. I think Tae Kyung is a great character and Jang Geun Suk played him really well!

My favorite was Shin Woo. He was such a sweetheart and a gentleman! But sometimes I got frustrated with how he didn't convey his feelings to Go Mi Nam. But when he did, I really really wanted him to end up with her!

Jeremy was just so cute and adorable! I loved how he spoke and when he cried, I wanted to hug him. His 'Jolie' was so cute! Lee Hongki did an amazing job!

All the other characters were really great too. Mahanager Ma, Wang Coordi, Yoo He Yi, President Ahn. All of them were really funny and likable.  The paparazzi person and Go Mi Nam's aunt were such annoying characters. But they were funny too. And Tae Kyung's mother was a really great character too. Kim Sung Ryung played her really well.

One thing that bothered me the most were Tae Kyung's and Jeremy's outfits. Jeremy's were so stupid. And Tae Kyung just looked gay. I don't know, maybe they wanted to show Go Mi Nam as a guy so they tried to make others seem more like girls...

The romance fell flat for me. But it didn't bother me either because it was just something happening. Like I didn't really care much for it. I liked the other things in the story better and as I said, I didn't like Go Mi Nam so I didn't really care who she'd end up with. To be honest, the top reason I watched this drama would be because I fell in love with Jung Yong Hwa 

All in all, it was an amazing drama. Not number 1 on my list but does come in top ten. If you like to watch romantic comedies, with a few tears and hot boys, then You're Beautiful is your drama ;)

Extras: Picture spam! (I do not own these.)


  1. Oh I really liked this one too! I agree about Park Shin Hye's acting. I also saw Heartstrings (well, I didn't finish it because it bored it), but it was mainly because I was excited to see "Shin Woo" and her finally have their "moment." I couldn't help but like the romcom story though. I'm such an easy sucker for them.

    Either way I'm still watching Heirs, but mainly because of Lee Min Ho. I'm so PSYCHED! I adore him.

    1. I didn't finish watching Heartstrings either! Maybe I will some day.. :P
      Oh my God, I love Lee Min Ho!! Like, that man is amazing! He's got good looks, good acting skills and God, he's so hot! But I didn't know about this new show... Why is Park Shin Hye so lucky?! I mean, she's not even that much of a great actress! And she gets to work with Jang Geun Suk, Jung Yong Hwa, and now Lee Min Ho! That's not fair... she better stay away from my SuJu boys! :P
      But I still do plan on watching Heirs too.. Can't miss anything with Lee Min Ho in it <3 Then maybe we could fan girl together after every episode! :P

  2. I agree, Park ShinHye has questionable acting skills here. Haha. And I didn't really like her in Heartstrings. So I was surprised that I ended up loving her in Flower Boy Next Door! :)

    Anyway, I kind of miss this series. This is the last drama that I loved Jang GeunSuk. It's been awhile since I actually liked him. :(

    1. I haven't seen Flower Boy Next Door yet.. But I do plan on watching it, I've heard some really great stuff about it!
      Oh, have you seen Love Rain? I loved JGS in that one! More than I loved him here...

    2. I haven't watched Love Rain yet! I read bad reviews and I am easily swayed. Haha. But I'll give it a try! I do admit that I miss him. T_T

    3. Well I gotta admit, it did have some plot holes.. But the start was great and I did enjoy watching it, so over all I'd give it a high rating :)
