Given to her by a mysterious woman, a book called “Are You In Love” gives So Jung (Kim So Eun) the answer to spice up her love life. What has so far been sad and colorless is now vibrant with every man at her feet! Much to her delight, even the cold-hearted Seung Jae (Sung Hoon), whom she has always had a crush on, is looking at her differently. Will this magical book give her the love she has always dreamed of? Or will it prove to be just a mischievous prank?
“Are You In Love” is an easy romantic flick to watch, especially if you’re looking for something unrealistic and satisfying. First of all, we get to watch things finally turn out for the better for our helpless heroine. What’s more, we see the irresistible Sung Hoon fall head over heels for her, becoming the sweetest, most romantic guy ever. That should be convincing enough, right?

To some, it may seem like Yi Soo (Han Hyo Joo) is going on a date with different people every day. But in reality, all the men and women she is in love with are just one man, Woo Jin (played by Park Seo Joon, Park Shin Hye, Lee Dong Wook, Seo Kang Joon…the list goes on). Every morning, Woo Jin wakes up to find himself in a completely new body, which ranges from a dashing young man to a kindergarten student. Every morning, Yi Soo lies in her bed, waiting for her unfamiliar yet familiar lover to come find her.
“The Beauty Inside” is bound to make you cry, laugh, and most importantly, think about the real meaning of love. Yi Soo did not love the mere attractive appearance of Woo Jin, but the beauty he held inside. That faith is what held them so strongly together, even though neither of them knew what tomorrow would bring. The fantastic cast studded with the brightest of Korean movie stars brings this beautiful, magical love story to life.

But as all good things must come to an end, the peace is broken when a chaotic, furious demon brings his wrath to destroy their worlds.
