Mask Girl Original Synopsis & Characters
Kim Mo-mi, an extremely ugly woman with a fantastic body.
Kim Mo-mi had aspired to be a celebrity since she was a child, and she possessed a variety of talents, including dancing and enjoying the spotlight. However, due to her unattractive appearance, she was unable to realize her dream. She is 29 years old and works as a regular office worker.
When it comes to her appearance, Kim Mo-mi has a strong sense of inferiority. She starts as an online streamer known as “Mask Girl,” hiding her face behind a mask and wig because she is not confident enough to show her face. She performs in front of the camera at night and is excited to show off her natural body shape and dancing abilities.
The other day, Kim Mo-mi had a drink with her colleague Joo Oh-Nam, a shy and ugly guy she frequently looks down on. Kim Mo-mi told him that she thinks her handsome manager likes him. Then Joo Oh-Nam informed her that the manager was dating someone else in the company. When Kim Mo-mi heard this, she slapped Joo Oh-Nam on the cheek.
Kim Mo-mi continues to develop feelings for her attractive manager and becomes obsessed with him. She misinterprets the manager’s feelings for her. She drags the manager to a motel drunk, strips him naked, and rapes him. She even lies to the manager the next day, who is unable to recall anything due to the alcohol.
On the other hand, Joo Oh-Nam was a big fan of online streaming. While watching the Mask Girl‘s channel one day, Joo Oh-Nam looks at the dots on the Mask Girl’s hands and notices that Kim Mo-mi is the Mask Girl. Joo Oh-Nam plans to get Kim Mo-mi into trouble based on what he knows about her secret.
