Dont recommend this
This plot is cliche, wich doesnt mean nothing bad for itself, it depends of how the author develops the story. The thing here are the characters: They all have some personal and mental issue, making them unconsistent, possesive, weird and scary if they were real. I dont see love in this story yet. The main guy is really the worst with fat Mio, and if at the end she forgives him (and I think they will end up together), then she would show how low self respect has. She cant forgive someone who treat her that badly only because he likes her pretty appearence. The other guy who trys to approach her, the famous one, also seems to have an obsession with her.

Why...aren't they translating this?
I started reading this from 2010 and for every four months since then, I have been checking for new chapters. Though this manga runs on the "teenage drama" lines, I enjoyed reading it when I was a teenager and still do as I remember it to be such a fun story then. Maybe I won't enjoy it as much, if I were to pick up the manga now, when I have quite grown out of shoujo, but the old times come back to you and you want to relish them.
Major spoiler here, I have read the following plot about how this manga ends in some website I don't remember. Here goes,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
As Mioh(the beautiful one) plots her revenge against the male lead by making him fall for her,(sorry forgot his name, lets just call him "the bully") she herself, in return, falls in love with him. When they kiss, the spell is broken and he realizes(oh yeah, he HAS fallen for her (the beautiful Mioh) at this point) it was all a farce, he feels betrayed and walks out of her life. Many years pass, Mioh, devoid of the magic that makes her beautiful, has moved on to a new city to start her life afresh. She is no longer pretty but has lost weight and is living her life with a positive attitude. Meanwhile, "the bully" comes to an understanding that he cannot stay away from either the fat-Mioh or the beautiful-Mioh. He gets back to her and they live happily ever after.
Well, that's how the story ends, anyway, still got my fingers crossed for new releases. RECOMMENDED.
My favorite manhwa
This is my favorite HMR! I really like it and recommend it to everyone. The supernatural element has always been my weak point and when coupled with a romantic drama, its almost irrestible for me hehhe, so yeah, even though the story starts off as a disturbing one and some people might have strong opinions against the couple that eventually end up together, I think its worth reading for everyone who enjoys a good drama!
HAHAHA , what a weirdoo ?????
Jahahahaha , I always looked at this and never thought i'd like it but I do I got so bored that I turned to this and I'm sorry the best part is the bullying its hilarious !! But seriously that guy is sick !! lol mentally ! and that girl meh get abused you biiiiiitcch haha and trust me I normally hate this type of thing but I don't know maybe I'm just in the accepting spirit today but so far its ok I just love the meanness haha its just hilarious . . .at the moment
UPDATE: 5 years later ? I still really like this it's very different and it's good to see the characters evolve I would say if you haven't read thus yet give it another couple of years. By then it should be fully scandalised.

Kim Dojin is a mentally ill bully (literally probably). Mio is a girl who could make something of herself even in her original state if she really tried - maybe she will in the end. I haven't quite figured out her current boyfriend - though he was nice to her even in her original state (I'm afraid he did it partly to spite Kim Dojin with whom he has some yet unknown relationship going on). I really like the Grandfather-character (Tinkerbell?=)).
All in all, I only keep reading it because there is nothing better to read right now.
And I agree with whoever said it: "The best revenge is a life lived happily." I unfortunately forgot who/where the quote is from.

I dont know why I'm even doing this to myself
Hwang Mi Ri's works all show so much promise and works up to this big finale but the ends are always so disappointing. I see tons of her work that sound like they would be good reads but from the few I've read they've all had that same empty ending. :/
Actually, i really like this manga. The plot is not very innovative, but is still pretty interesting. I read only the first two chapters, but i hope it'll continue to be as beautiful as now, so i give it an eight
Wow, um... Definitely not your typical shoujo managa but not original either. I can't say I enjoy that asshole's behavior but it's quite funny how her life has taken a turn for the better. Maybe it will add to the satisfaction when she gets her revenge? I honestly don't know but I'll keep tabs on this manga.
its really good and promising
Firstly i love the concept, every girl would love a cinderella moment.
It is realistic to a certain degree in the part where people bully other people. It does happen but not to THAT degree most of the time, but the people being bullied really do get hurt and many transfer out the school. (i have seen it)
Back to the story, the main character is pretty likable since she plays the tragic heroine part and basically there isn't something very annoying about her. The two guys are really hot and you can tell that the bully loves the fat her even though he denies it. Weird but its fine.
I recommend it to anyone who loves beauty transformation mangas <3
it's a sort of twist (not really) to a fairty tale (sorta, because the ugly duckling isn't really a fairy tale). i like the beginning and i like how evil the guy is. obviously, he likes the pig girl... in a sort of freaky, twisted, evil way, but its almost childish to a certain extent
Spoiler (highlight to view)
i mean, if he didn't like her, why would he put her picture on his cellphone, even if it is a picture of her eating food off the floor, usually a person doesn't put a picture, no matter how horrifying that picture is, of a person on their cellphones unless the person is special to them... which makes me sort of shiver because it just shows how twisted he is. also, who would go to that extent just to bully someone and follow them to that school. i think that he's ashamed that he likes her and wants to "punish" her because she's ugly and he still likes her. but in the end, similar to cutie boy, which i also believe is another work of hwang mi ri, the bully gets the girl he bullied and somehow she'll put the guy's perspective of how he was "loving" the pigy girl in his own sort of twisted way"
overall, i look forward to how she'll explain his evil character, and hopefully it'll be cute like in Cutie Boy.
as for the girl, it's always fun to see low esteemed females learn their own strength over males, so i also look forward to that. again, this is just the beginning, so hopefully it ends well as well.
