Hey , gorgeous , it’s been such a long time , ugh i have been so packed up with my schedule and now i just wanna talk a lot about beauty , LMAO it’s not like i’m a beauty expert but yeah let me be.
so , this last couple of months i have been introduced to this k-dramas named “My ID Gangnam Beauty” yes it’s a korean drama , it’s a story about a girl named Kang Mirae who was insecure with her physical features , ok i know everyone has their own insecurities and i personally think it’s normal , we are all humans afterall , we tend to crave perfections and we always think that we are not enough , we always want something more , and our society always demand something more for us.
growing up as a girl , become beautiful is something that i want to accomplished , but now i realized being a girl is more than just beautiful , we are more than that , we are strong , we are smart , we are stubborn , and that’s what makes us girls , females , ladies , well you named it , but my focus today isn’t this but how the story in this drama relates so much with the majority of girls in this world , the insecurities , the wars between girls in throwing shade and how competitive we are , how we are drawn to those pretty boys , , and how our society makes us feel insecure and that we are never enough to the point surgery is the answer , that makes me realize how fucked up we are as a human being , i have nothing against those who has done so many surgeries , i’m no one to judge , it’s really not about the surgery , the labels , and the natural beauty , it’s all really just how we think of our selves , how we should not let those insults get into our heads and turn us into someone that is intoxicated with the thought of beauty .
in this drama there are 2 main characters , that caught my attentions , both are girls , both are pretty , both aren’t able to love themselves , the different is just the way they express it , okay let’s call them Mirae and Soo A .
Mirae wasn’t really blessed with the ‘natural beauty‘ she did a lot of surgery on her face just to feel confident and pretty , and she is labelled as Gangnam Beauty , it’s a name for those people who does a lot of surgeries and look so unreal , she cares a lot of what people think of her self , to the point even when she has done a lot of surgeries she still feels insecure and being hard on her self , she feels that she isn’t worth the love of this hot guy named Kyungseok and see her self as someone who doesn’t worth his time and that she doesn’t deserve him , all because she feels she isn’t pretty enough for him , but actually Kyungseok doesn’t really cares , he sees through her self , he sees the real her , he doesn’t care about her past , he doesn’t care about her face , he cares because she is Kang Mirae and that’s what makes him in love with her , she is just being herself .
as for Soo A she was born to be pretty , everyone knows that and she knows that , but knowing her self being pretty isn’t enough for her , she still has so many insecurities to the point she wants to be loved by everyone , literally the whole campus admire her , because she is a cutie and lovely , but no one ever see her true color , she can’t bare the thought that other girls have something that she is not , get me? like she wants to be the number one in everyone hearts but life doesn’t work that way , and the fact that Kyungseok hates her and chose Mirae than her instead , makes her mad , makes her questioning herself , how can someone who was blessed with natural beauty lost a battle to someone who wasn’t even pretty from the beginning and do a lot of surgeries , at least that’s what she thought .
but really it’s really not the looks , not a gift , it’s all about self love , how can we love someone if we can’t even love ourselves ? if we always see the bad inside us how can we see the good in others?
if we keep give a damn about what others says , we won’t find our comfort and our happiness , we can give a lot of surgeries on ourselves to be ‘pretty’ the way we see what pretty is , but really if deep down we see ourselves as someone ugly than those surgeries mean nothing at all .
you can do whatever you want with your face , body just to feel like a queen , but if you do it to satisfy our society , to satisfy those people who labels you , you better stop , or happiness won’t find you .
this drama really gives such a strong messages to many young girls out there , that you have always been beautiful , it’s just the matter of time when you can see the real you , when you can see the potential with in you .
loving ourselves isn’t easy , it’s hard , but it’s not impossible.
