Female characters in K-dramas are always famous for their pretty makeup looks, except for these cases.
1. Hwang Jung Eum – She Was Pretty
Kim Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum) – the lively, cheerful female lead of She Was Pretty encounters many hardships in her work because of her “ugly duckling” visual. She then decides to give herself a makeover but ends up making the whole company shocked because she goes way overboard with her makeup.
2. Moon Ga Young – True Beauty
If Hye Jin gets into trouble at the company, Lim Joo Kyung (Moon Ga Young) is bullied and left out at school because of her unattractive appearance. She then attempts to transform herself with the help of makeup but does not know how to apply the products at first, resulting in Joo Kyung showing up at school with a face that scares everyone.
3. Hyeri – Reply 1988
The scene of Duk Sun (Hyeri) using her sister’s cosmetics to make up in Reply 1988 has become a legendary scene. Although her face did not scare everyone like the case of True Beauty’s Joo Kyung, Duk Sun‘s humorous expression and the way she used an extinguished match to curl her eyelashes made a strong impression on the audience.
4. Ahn Eun Jin – Hospital Playlist
Not only one, but Chu Min Ha (Ahn Eun Jin), the kind doctor of Hospital Playlist, also has a collection of funny makeup looks. With a strong passion for makeup, the “makeup artist” of Yulje Hospital tries all the hottest makeup trends of young people, from “black pearl” style to “white snowflake” style. However, she has never been successful so far.
