Lookism Synopsis

Park Hyung Suk has spent the 17 years of his life at the bottom of the food chain. Short, overweight and unattractive, he is used to being bullied by his classmates and constantly discriminated against for his looks. In an attempt to escape his biggest bully, Lee Tae Sung, he decides to transfer to Seoul Jae Won High School, a vocational high school famous for its liberal education system and his carefree students.

Days before his transfer, Hyung Suk wakes up to find that he no longer has his usual chubby body, but instead has a perfect body! Tall, handsome, and beautifully toned, Hyung Suk has become the ideal version of himself. The only problem is that his original body is still next to him, and when one body falls asleep, he wakes up in the other. Now that he possesses two extremely different bodies, Hyung Suk must learn to navigate his new and much more popular life at J High School, as he solves the mystery of where his second, almost superhuman body came from.
