The series tells the story of novice nun, Go Mi Nyeo, who impersonates her identical twin brother, secretly replacing him in a boy band. She becomes conflicted about her charade when she becomes friends with her new band mates and falls for the lead singer. The show stars Park Shin-hye as Go Mi Nyeo and Jang Geun Suk as Hwang Tae Kyung. It also stars Jung Yong Hwa, a member of Korean rock band CN Blue and Lee Hong Ki, the lead singer of Korean band F.T. Island. "You're Beautiful" premiered on October 7, 2009 on SBS. Although achieving only average ratings in its television run, "You're Beautiful" won a variety of awards, including the Popularity Award at the Korea Drama Festival.

At the beginning of the series, teenager Go Mi Nam achieves his lifelong dream when he is chosen as one of the new members of the popular Korean boy band, A.N. Jell. He is convinced that his long-lost birth mother will be able to find him when he is famous, but a botched eye job puts his opportunity in jeopardy. He enlists the help of his identical twin sister Mi Nyeo, a novice nun.

With the collusion of the band's manager and stylist, Mi Nyeo disguises herself as Go Mi Nam and joins the band. She at first meets resistance from the lead singer, the ill-tempered perfectionist Hwang Tae Kyung, but he later begrudgingly accepts her due to her excellent singing voice. Meanwhile, Mi Nyeo has developed feelings for the older Tae Kyung. The band's observant guitarist Shin Woo quickly guesses that she is a girl and is overly solicitous of her, casting himself in the role of a protective older brother.

Matters become complicated when one by one the members of the band fall for Mi Nyeo, and she realizes that she only loves the emotionally unavailable Tae Kyung.
