Birth of a Beauty is a romantic comedy drama series from SBS that aired from November 2014 to January 2015. The show starred Sang-uk Joo, Ye-seul Han, and Gyo-jin In, and follows the story of a woman named Sa Geum-ran who undergoes a full-body plastic surgery transformation in order to get revenge on her unfaithful husband.

Sa Geum-ran is a woman who has dedicated her life to taking care of her husband and daughter. She is overweight and lacks self-confidence, but she loves her husband deeply and believes that he loves her as well. One day, she discovers that her husband is having an affair with a younger, beautiful woman named Gyo Chae-yeon. Devastated by this betrayal, Sa Geum-ran decides to take matters into her own hands and undergoes a full-body transformation with the help of a famous plastic surgeon named Han Tae-hee.

After her transformation, Sa Geum-ran takes on a new identity as Sara, a beautiful and confident woman who is determined to make her husband regret ever leaving her. However, her plan becomes complicated when she falls in love with Han Tae-hee, who initially agreed to help her with her revenge plan but eventually starts to have feelings for her as well.

The show also features other characters who play important roles in the story, including Han Tae-hee's younger sister Han Min-hyeok, who is secretly in love with Gyo Chae-yeon's older brother, Gyo Ji-hoon. Gyo Chae-yeon's mother, Gyo Seol-ran, is another important character who tries to manipulate and control her daughter's life, while Sa Geum-ran's friend and personal trainer, Jung-joon, provides comic relief and helps Sa Geum-ran with her transformation journey.

Throughout the show, Sa Geum-ran/Sara faces many challenges as she tries to balance her desire for revenge with her growing feelings for Han Tae-hee. She also learns to navigate the beauty-obsessed world of high society, where appearances and social status are everything. As the story progresses, viewers are taken on a rollercoaster ride of romance, drama, and humor, as Sa Geum-ran/Sara navigates the ups and downs of her new life.

Overall, Birth of a Beauty is a fun and entertaining show that explores themes of self-confidence, revenge, and love.
