To The Beautiful You (2012) Review


Kang Tae-Joon (Minho) is a gold medalist for high jumper, but he has lost his form due to injury. To help out her idol, a girl named Koo Jae-Hee (Sulli) disguised herself as a boy and enrolled in the same male high school.

When Tae-Joon (Minho) was competing at the World Youth Competition, Jae-Hee (Sulli) watched him on TV in America and became very emotional.

Despite his friends saying otherwise, Jae-Hee cut his long hair by himself. She then flies to Korea, with plans to stay with Tae-Joon, who is currently injured. Jae-Hee disguises herself as a boy and enrolls at the All-Boys Genie Physical Education High School. On the first day of school, Jae-Hee goes upstairs with her suitcase, but her suitcase is split open and all her clothes fall out. A boy comes and helps her get things. Jae-Hee realizes that the guy who helps her is none other than her idol Tae-Joon. In his excitement, Jae-Hee sits on his suitcase, and starts to slide down the stairs.

Jae-Hee goes to his first class and introduces himself. One of her classmates, Jong-Min (Hwang Kwang-Hee), told her that if she wanted to be their classmate, she would have to go pick up a ball put inside one. The dog pen is located on the campus. Jae-Hee walks to the barn and sees a warning sign about the dog. However, the dog seems friendly with Jae-Hee and she goes inside to get the ball out. At that moment, Jae-Hee hears Tae-Joon's voice and she hides in the canine. Tae-Joon starts talking to the dog and tells the dog that he doesn't want to do the high jump during the commercial shoot tomorrow. Tomorrow will be Tae-Joon's first time jumping high after being injured. Jae-Hee comes out of the kennel and asks Tae-Joon if he's okay after being injured. Tae-Joon becomes angry and leaves.

She went back to the classroom and gave the ball to Jong-Min, who was surprised. The dog is often hostile to passersby. Eun-Gyeol (Lee Hyun-Woo), who is a soccer player, looks at her with a smile.

Then, Jae-Hee goes to her dorm room and learns that she is sharing her room with another student. Upon exiting the bathroom, Jae-Hee sees his new roommate, Tae-Joon! Tae-Joon immediately kicks her out of the room, but with the help of Seung-Ri (Seo Jun-Young), who oversees the student dormitory, she is able to return to the room.

The next day, students at Genie High School gathered to play soccer. Tae-Joon tells Jae-Hee that if she hits her goal, he'll let her stay in his room. Jae-Hee tries hard to score, but collides with Jong-Min and is knocked out. Tae-Joon carries her to the school infirmary. Before she wakes up, Tae-Joon runs to the school gym, where a high jump commercial will be filmed. Meanwhile, Tae-Hee wakes up and she knows that the school doctor knows that she is a girl.
