Unlike the classic rags-to-riches fairytale story with an extremely happy ending, the 2006 horror movie "Cinderella" tackles the aftermath of botched plastic surgeries that are rampant in the beauty industry in South Korea.

It tells the story of the plastic surgeon who has unspeakable intentions, in which her clients begin committing suicide, suspiciously, by slicing upon their faces and mumbling "I'll make you pretty" before their last breaths.

The story is intriguing and bizarre as it bridges both supernatural and the modern aspects of the world. Director Bong Man Dae, through "Cinderella," aims to open the eyes of young teenagers who crave to get their bodies and faces go under the knife to conform to the conventional beauty standards.
