In this Korean movie with English subtitles, Eun-yeong is a beautiful woman who finds her beauty both a blessing and a curse. Unfortunately, her beauty draws unwanted attention and makes some women jealous. At one point, she goes so far as to say, “Beauty is destiny.” One day, a young man who has been harassing her, Soung-min, comes into her apartment, professes his love for her, and when she rejects him, as she has done in the past, beats and rapes her. Afterwards, Seong-min turns himself in to the police, showing them a picture of Eun-young, as he left her, bloody and raped. Then he blames Eun-yeong for the rape. In response to the incident, Eun-yeong tries to destroy her beauty, first by over-eating, then by making herself too thin. Unhappy that her beauty is gone, she decides to make herself attractive again with make-up and beautiful clothes. Now, however, she lives in fear.
