The Beast and the Beauty (Hangul: 야수와 미녀; RR: Yasuwa minyeo) is a 2005 South Korean romantic-comedy film.


It involves voice-actor Dong-gun (Ryoo Seung-bum), whose blind girlfriend Hae-ju (Shin Min-a) suddenly receives surgery to regain her eyesight. Having lied to Hae-ju about his appearance, the beastly Dong-gun chooses to undergo extreme measures to change his appearance, while promising Hae-ju that he will return soon after having a work project in Hawaii. Meanwhile, Hae-ju bumps into the Joon-ha (Kim Kang-woo) — Dong-gun's high school friend whose appearance is how Dong-gun described himself to Hae-ju—and mistakes him for Dong-gun. Hilarity ensues, and Dong-gun finds himself struggling to hold onto the love of the woman he loves.
