The Beauty Inside (Hangul: 뷰티 인사이드; RR: Byuti Insaideu; lit. "Beauty Inside") is a 2015 South Korean high-concept romantic comedy film based on the 2012 American social film The Beauty Inside, about a man who wakes up every day in a different body. It is Baik's feature film debut, after a career directing commercials.
Furniture designer Woo-jin wakes up in a different body every day, 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 reunite with Yi-soo.
