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

Dawn Young

into this.

Dawn Yang

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 . . .

A hot chick by any means is still hot

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 from?

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.

Labels: ,

I remember how I was searching all over the place for the April Maxim with Jaymee Ong on the cover, only to find the May issue with Dawn Yang. Ugh. I'm not really her fan.

And oh well, it might not be very good PR if she said she understood what people mean when they draw parallels between the movie and her. Singaporean fanbase is a very weird and fickle-minded crowd.
Dude, I have that copy. You wanna borrow it? I'd like it back unsticky, though. ;)

i know this is an old post, and i found it quite by chance.

i live in korea and i can tell you that kim ah jung has likely had plastic surgery. here's a korean site discussing it (with pix):


however, there's no doubting she's hot. one of my favourite korean actresses.

i've heard that she didn't sing the son 'maria' either ... but i haven't verified it yet.

stay cool
