PS is cool
I just watched 200 Pounds Beauty
, and it was surprisingly funny and heartwarming. I still did not have a heart the last time I checked, so I'm just basing the latter on hearsay.
Basically, the show revolves around this ugly chick Hanna, who sings for lip-synching pop queen Ammy. Hanna is in love with Ammy's supposedly gorgeous producer which rouses the ire of Ammy. Ammy plays a cruel prank on Hanna (go watch the movie if you wish to know what the prank was), embarrassing her in front of the producer dude, after which Hanna attempts suicide. In the middle of the attempt, she changed her mind and decided to become pretty instead by going for drastic plastic surgery.
The surgery was, mildly speaking, wildly successful. It turned her from this
Oops, I'm sorry, I got the pictures mixed up. I meant from the one on the left to the one on the right of the picture below.
After she turns into a hot chick, she looks the producer dude up again, using the name Jenny. She claims to be a natural beauty, and he markets her image as such, but later she decides to come clean with the public, and instead of getting crucified for it, her popularity rockets.
I think the moral we can all draw from the story is that plastic surgery is totally cool . . .
So long as you 'fess up to it. Oh gods, I'm sorry, I have no idea why these totally irrelevant pictures keep appearing on my blog. Jeez, where are they all coming
p.s. Jokes aside, if you haven't watched the movie, go watch it. I left out a lot of crucial plot points leading up to Hanna's final decision, not to mention numerous comedic elements.
p.p.s. I just found out that the actress, Kim Ah-jung, is not only gorgeous, she really did sing the cover of Blondie's "Maria" for the show. She is totally my new favourite Asian star.
p.p.p.s. According to some shallow googling, Kim Ah-jung's beauty is, in fact, au naturel
Addendum: And she (not Kim Ah-jung) says
she does not get the similarity, haha! If irony were made of alcohol, we'd all be drowning in tequila right now.
