Birth of A Beauty: 

BoaB_MainPost01

This is Han Ye Seul’s comeback to KDramaland after the epic meltdown at the tail-end filming of Spy MyungWol three years ago.

Joo Sang Wook plays Han Tae-Hee, an heir of a large company. He suffers from a broken heart syndrome due to great psychological shock. To get back the woman he loves, he completely changes an unattractive and overweight Sa Geum-Ran to beautiful Sara (Han Ye-Seul). In the process, Han Tae-Hee falls in love with Sara.

Sounds like a 100kgs Eliza Doolittle with her professor… albeit a rich one 🙂 And having a good-looking ensemble helps out too XD
