Several models compete to be chosen as the most beautiful person, but they are not told that the real purpose of the competition is to chose the one with the most beautiful personal qualities such as character, virtue, honesty, etc. 18-year-old high school student Lim Ju-kyung, who has an inferiority complex regarding her appearance, has been constantly discriminated by her family and bullied by her peers due to being perceived as ugly. She starts learning how to use makeup by binge-watching makeup tutorial videos on the Internet. When she masters the art just before transferring to her new school, her makeover proves to be transformative as she quickly rises to fame and her peers call her a "goddess". Despite her newfound popularity, Ju-kyung still considers herself ugly and it is her greatest fear that her peers will see her real face. This unfortunately comes true when her dashingly handsome classmate Lee Su-ho, whom she had previously run into with her bare face a couple of times, recognizes her beyond her makeup.
