Woo-jin wakes up in a different body everyday, regardless of age, gender and nationality. Sometimes he’s a man, a woman, old, young, or even a foreigner. He’s the same person on the inside, but on the outside he’s always someone new. Looking at a different face in the mirror every morning is hard for him to get used to.
The only constant in his life is the girl he loves, Yi-soo, who knows his secret and loves him anyway. Each time he transforms, Woo-jin must figure out how to return to his own body and reunite with Yi-soo.
What would you do if you woke up with a new face every day? Woo-jin, a man who designs furniture for a living, is used to this. An elderly man, a little boy, a chubby woman, a foreigner, Woo-jin has grown accustomed to his super-natural “situation.” The only people that know of his illness are his mother and his best friend Sang-baek. One day, he meets Yi-su, a girl who works for a furniture store, and instantly falls in love with her. Since his physical identity changes frequently, he continues to visit her daily, acting as a customer that she has never seen before. Woo-jin finally musters up the courage to talk to her and ask her out on a date. The perfect date passes by and Woo-jin, knowing that his face will change once he falls asleep, attempts to stay awake for as long as he can. He meets Yi-su for three consecutive days and Yi-su also falls in love with him. However, Woo-jin can no longer fight sleep. He passes out and wakes up with a new face. Will Woo-jin tell Yi-su about his condition? What will Yi-su think? Based on the renown social film “The Beauty Inside” developed by Intel and Toshiba. The social film won Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions Festival and two Gold Clio Awards in 2013.
This definitely puts the “high” in “high concept.” I have so many questions that I’m sure the movie will address in the kookiest of ways so I’ll keep my curiosity in check till it premieres in July.
