Han Tae-Hee (Joo Sang-Wook) is the heir of a large company. He is suffering from a broken heart syndrome due to a psychological shock. To get the woman he loves back, 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.

My Point of View:

What if, you found out that the one who tried to kill you is your husband?
What if, you’re trying your best to be the best wife yet he still looks for another one and wanted a divorce?
Are you going to take a risk to have an image transformation and have a revenge?
Are you going to let someone enter your new world for a happy future or you’ll let your past drown you?

Well, this 21 episode drama answers them all.

It’s about an Ajhumma na sinaktan ngunit bumangon at naging masaya. Though ang twist is nagkaroon siya ng body transformation and everything turns upside down.
I do really agree with being beautiful is the best revenge but the most important thing is not just the beauty, it is about finding your true self.

The drama taught many lessons in life which made me hook into it. Greedy, revenge and love are the main points of it. Random emotions showered all over the story since madaming kontrabida which you’ll never know kung kakampi or kalaban ba talaga.

Some of the characters in the drama are quite amusing. Despite from all the things happened in the past, the main characters conquered everything. Ang kaso lang, nabitin ako sa ending.



  • Sa Geum-Ran/Sa-Ra
    The Ahjumma who had a transformation from a fat to a sexy one. Three boys are head-over-heels to her since she’s considered as a Birth of Chef. She’s a very caring and jolly Ahjumma who loves to cook. When love teaches you how to be unselfish in order to protect someone is I think her best lesson.


  • Han Tae-Hee
    The doctor whom Sara thought who transform her into a sexy one. He has a broken heart syndrome on which he needs to face later on the story. He and Sara have each other’s back. They are in the same boat, hiding their real identity to forget that painful past but the present wants them to face and conquer it.


  • Lee Kang-Joon
    The guy who broke  Sa Geum-Ran’s heart that leads her to transform and make a revenge.
