She dreams of becoming a singer with a heavenly voice, the only gift God has given her, but she is a 'faceless singer' who sings songs instead of lip syncing with the beautiful singer 'Army'.

【 About movie 】

S-line comedy that makes you laugh without being fat
>> Original cartoon at peak popularity + Director Kim Yong-hwa's directing power

The best-selling cartoon 'Beauty is Suffering', which was translated and sold over 300,000 copies in Korea in 1999, had so much fun with the original story, it was prepared to be a hit enough that Korea's leading film companies competed in the competition for the rights to make the original movie. Here, the debut film <Oh! Brothers> Director Kim Yong-hwa's human humor and directing power and the trendy sensibility of Noh Hye-young of <Singles> and <English Conquest> are both wings, leading to the rise of the movie <Beauty is Suffering>.

Unusual actors who united for 'Beauty'
>> Joo Jin-mo and Kim Ah-joong's two-color charm and supporting dream team supporting them

The female lead in <Beauty is Painful> debuted as a cool attractive woman in the movie <Gwang-shik's younger brother, Gwang-tae>, and Kim Ah-joong, a super rookie who received attention for brilliantly expressing the friendly and realistic characters of the KBS drama <Weird Man, Weird Woman>. The top domestic actresses were on the lookout for a female lead character with a unique personality that 'transforms from a fat woman to a beautiful woman', but it was a choice that emphasized the degree of conformity with the character in the movie rather than her career. Kim Ah-joong, who has a perfect body and explosive singing power just like a real female lead, is the female lead 'Hannah' itself, as if the movie itself was a script written for her.

Her counterpart is Joo Jin-mo. As a character who unintentionally gave a chance to transform a fat woman into a beautiful woman, 'Sang-jun', who has a soft yet strong charisma, was told that Joo Jin-mo, who showed off her gentle charm, was the enemy. Loved for his gentle appearance and emotional acting, he is active this year with <Beauty is Suffering> as well as the movie <Brain Play Project, Puzzle>, which is waiting for release, and the SBS drama <Queen of the Game> scheduled to air in November. It is planned to show the bold charm of a manly line to a celebrity who is popular with handsome boys.

The supporting cast is also plentiful. Won-jong Lee, who will make a surprise appearance as a flower swordsman who predicts fate like tweezers, who will perform his first 'acting during the winter', Hyun-sook Kim, 'Chulsandra' who will give a rich blessing to the screen, Han-wi Lee, a famous 'laugh bomb', who has dementia Lim Hyun-sik, who will show the climax of paternal love as the father, and Kim Yong-gun, Sung Dong-il, and Park No-sik, who will make every corner of the movie laugh from the big hand of the entertainer to the stalker, the 'Comedy Dream Team' was formed. .

'Beauty' unique style and scale
>> Mammoth performance at Olympic Gymnastics Stadium, the best staff

Another piece of news that the <Beauty is Painful> team is proud of is the music and concert scenes in the movie. The film music, which makes the dramatic effect of the video more effective, was performed by Lee Jae-hak, a bassist and producer of the modern rock band <Love Holic>. As Kim Ah-joong plays the role of 'Hannah', the owner of a great singing ability in the movie, she shows off her singing skills by directly singing songs of various genres to be included in the OST, such as pop, ballad, and modern rock. Kim Hyun-suk of 'Chulsandra' also participated in the OST like a musical actor, adding weight.
In addition, the scene of a large-scale concert worth 300 million won, which was unprecedented in film shooting history, was reminiscent of the scale of a real concert venue that was held under the plans of professional concerts and directors at the Olympic Gymnastics Stadium, a concert venue for the best stars in Korea such as Seo Taiji, Shinhwa, and TVXQ. In addition, the special choreography of Kwak Yong-geun, the choreographer who created Jeon Ji-hyun's techno dance and Park Ki-woong's millstone dance, was added to create the best performance in film history. It is said that you can enjoy concerts worth tens of thousands of won with an admission fee of 7,000 won.

【 Issue 】

1. No more transformation.

A fat woman Kim Ah-joong
In the movie <Beauty is Painful>, Kim Ah-joong's efforts are so permeated throughout the film that it can be called the age of suffering. Appearing in more than 90% of the movie, she had to go through 4 hours of special makeup every day and an hour of makeup removal after filming to become 95 kg of fat Hanna.
Her pain must have been more than we could have guessed because the special makeup was filmed this summer, which was exceptionally hot and long. However, she waited for the opportunity to see actresses such as Charlize Theron in <Monster> and Renee Zellweger in <Bridget Jones's Diary> transform for the characters in the movie, so the patience and pain towards the work was a happy and enjoyable process.

Rather than this, Kim Ah-joong confesses that it was more difficult to build a character that many women can relate to and feel as “my story”. However, through this work, she not only learned the attitude of a professional actress, but also gained fluent English due to the (semi-compulsory) English tutoring opportunity with a special makeup team for more than 5 hours every day, a truly rewarding (!) work process. He said that he was proud of his debut on the screen as a lead role.

Actress Kim Ah-joong who became a singer
Kim Ah-joong has been recognized for her natural talent since she debuted through a TV entertainment program. This is because the dancing and singing skills she showed went beyond the level that new actors basically practiced.
Kim Ah-joong, who met a proper stage through the movie <Beauty is Suffering>, is proud of her amazing ability to sing the 4 songs inserted into the movie while acting as a singer in the movie. His goal as an actor of wanting to sing the OST of the movie he starred in was fulfilled in his first lead role in his life. At the time of the contract, the production team, who did not know Kim Ah-joong's singing skills, was going to find another vocal that suited Kim Ah-joong's appearance in the play and entrust him to sing the song inserted in the movie. She unanimously agreed to leave it to her and fully supported her debut as a singer.

2. No more supporting roles.

The director who laughed and missed the ok autograph because of the comic supporting dream team
The movie <Beauty is Painful> features many actors who always give us fresh laughter. Because of that, the scene is always friendly! Even the staff, exhausted from the tight filming schedule, said that when the supporting actors' comic performances continued, they laughed and spontaneously produced endorphins.
As a representative example, in the scene of Lee Won-jong and Hanna's Yeoksulwon in 'Flower Doryung' filmed not long after cranking, even director Kim Yong-hwa was directing while looking at the monitor and forgot to shout an ok sign and was immersed in his comic acting. Also, in the movie <Beauty is Painful>, Kim Hyun-sook, Hanna's close friend, who is famous for her maternity drama, will appear on the screen. She, who has already shown off her outstanding singing skills through gag stages and musicals, has now had a chance to show off her skills as she takes on the role of chorus Jeongmin.

3. No more shows.

300 million won concert stage, participation in music performance agencies, professionalism enhancement
In the movie <Beauty is Painful>, there are three concert scenes in total.
In the beginning, when Hannah showed her faceless singer appearance, the concert of the sexy female singer ARMY, the concert of the rookie singer Jenny who transformed into a beauty, and the concert of Hannah, who came back to the original Hanna again, are those stages. In order to reproduce the high-quality concert stage, Kim Ah-joong received special dance training from director Kwak Yong-geun of 'The Dance', famous as a CF choreographer, and vocal training from singer Yumi. . In addition, filming was conducted at the Olympic Gymnastics Stadium in order to bring out the sense of scale like a realistic concert scene, and nearly 1,000 auxiliary performers were mobilized to reproduce the atmosphere of the actual concert hall, showing a variety of visuals that have never been seen in Korean cinema history. .
