Check out the new English-subtitled trailer for The Beauty Inside (2015), a South Korean romantic comedy about a guy who wakes up every day as a different person.
The feature debut for commercial director Baek Jong-Yeol is based on Intel and Toshiba’s 2012 social film of the same name by Drake Doremus, which won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding New Approach to an Original Daytime Program or Series in 2013.
The storyline is very similar to David Levithan‘s 2012 bestselling novel, Every Day.
While he’s the same person on the inside, on the outside he’s a different age, gender or nationality.
The only constant in his frustrating life is the girl he loves, Yi-Soo (Han Hyo-Joo), who knows his secret and loves him anyway.
Each time he transforms, Woo-Jin must figure out how to return to his own body and reunite with Yi-Soo.
A Yong Film production, The Beauty Inside premiered in South Korea on August 20, 2015 through Next Entertainment World after pre-selling its distribution rights at the Cannes Film Market. It brought in $4.2 million at the box office.
The Beauty Inside will make its U.S. premiere on September 11, 2015 via Well Go USA.
