Program Note

Beauty Water means that you can freely change your face as you would with makeup without having to undergo plastic surgery. Due to her appearance, Yeji has suffered terribly. One day, she faces an incredible temptation and she changes her face and body, literally from head to toe, to become popular. She just wants to keep her new appearance and life, no matter what it takes or what sacrifice must be made. 

This film is a feature animation based on Beauty Water an episode of Oh Seongdae's webtoon Tales of the Unusual. While keeping the original's eccentric imagination and atmosphere, the film adds a new story with high-quality drawings and movements. Voice actors were also added, doubling the bizarreness and entertainment. This work satirizes the absurdity of modern society's obsession with appearance through the protagonist, who is swept by the beauty standards of the world that ends up driving her to catastrophe. (MO Eun-young)
