Lunapark6, by EunWook source: http://lunapark6.com/200-pounds-beauty.html
«200 Pounds Woman is the kind of movie that will have you laughing out loud and also bopping your head along to the soundtrack. The movie is just a wonderful film that did make me wonder what would happen if I did such an extreme makeover like Han-Na»
ampedASIA, by Andrew Kao source: http://www.ampedasia.com/movies/200-Pound-Beauty/
«A superb, brilliant movie. Not only did this movie provide lots of laughs, but it was also incredibly heart wrenching.»
200 Pounds Beauty review by Synthe Teo source: http://ezinearticles.com/?200-Pounds-Beauty&id=891480
«Hanna's heart-felt speech made me teared a bit and it really highlight the importance of us living our life and acknowledging and accepting ourselves as who we are...
...In all, 200 Pounds Beauty is an entertaining comedy which is worth watching. Its not just merely some brainless comedy but also conveys meaningful messages to the audience.»
HollywoodBitchslap, by Jay Seaver source: http://hollywoodbitchslap.com/review.php?movie=16253
«Kim Ah-jung is the reason to see this movie; she brings the same sort of innocent, kind of dorky charm to Han-na at both sizes, always at least a bit out of step with what people expect from someone who looks like she does. She always hits the right note to get the audience to believe in and like Han-na»
BeyondHollywood, by James Mudge source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/200-pounds-beauty-2006-movie-review/
«the film stands as one of the best romantic comedies from Korea in recent years. Offering an effective and thoughtful mix of laughs and social commentary, it should manage to win over even viewers who are not normally fans of the form.»

«a perfect movie to watch. The story was great, it make my eyes wide open to see people not from their physics but their personality. The cast did a very great job, and catchy songs they have in this movie»
KoreanFilm.org, by Darcy Paquet source: http://koreanfilm.org/kfilm06.html#200pounds
«But Kim A-jung is the reason to watch this film. I have to say it, Kim A-jung is the bomb. Not only does she look great, but she does all of the singing on her own and she displays a nice instinct for comedy.»
