Title: Baby-faced Beauty
AKA: Youthful Beauty / Pretty Young Woman
Genre: Romance, Comedy
Episodes: 20
Broadcast period: 2011-May to 2011-Jul
Cast: Jang Na Ra, Choi Daniel, Ryu Jin, Kim Min Seo and Oh Yeon Soo.

Lee So Young (Jang Na Ra) a 34 year old baby face is usually judge as younger than she actually is. When she is fired from a fabric factory after the company starts to cut down people. In order to keep the firing a secret from her mother, she tries to get a job at a tailor. Her younger sister So Jin (Oh Yeon Soo) busts her, and demands money for it, but when So Young turns her down, she steals a designer jacket and runs away from there. When So Young finds out about it, she finds So Jin in a night club, but the jacket is in the hands of a man names Choi Jin Wook (Choi Daniel). Jin Wook works as a MD in a fashion company, and looks much older than he actually is. So Jin had given Jin Wook the jacket so she could run away, but this is seen by So Young, so she tries to get the jacket back. Things escalate and the two destroy the clubs property, and are told to pay $20.000. So Young betrays Jin Wook by running away, leaving him with the debt and anger. Not knowing who she is, he puts her face on wanted posts, with a reward for information.
Due to So Young’s sister’s tardiness, So Young has to save So Jin from getting fired from her part time job, by acting as a 25 year old, instead of her. That very company happens to be the very same company where Jin Wook works..

I didn’t think I’d like it, but the lead couple has become a favorite. They really complement each other, even though he is at least 30cm taller than her, and his head is x3 bigger. The plot in the beginning was silly, but as it continued, it became interesting, and worth the wait. And I believe that this is the first time the lead actress falls for a co-worker and not the CEO… Like that made me so happy. 
The script is good too, and the screenplay adorable, though a bit cliché- might only be in my eyes, but I did expect most things to happen. 
I think it’s one of those that you either love or loath. I happen to love it (And I unwillingly have started to like Choi Daniel - doh!)
All in all great watch!
