Critic Reviews:

Overall the animation felt like it would have worked better as a webtoon due to its pacing. The pace was so jerkily fast that we barely have the time to comprehend one event before it moves on to another. This also leads to the collapse of the horror scenes as there was no build up to the scare. There were no longer lingering shots but instead rough edits tha rendered jump scares ineffective. The accompanying music was also too hyper at points, killing the eeriness of the scenes.


In Beauty Water, Yaeji suffers not because she undergoes cosmetic changes, but because she thinks those changes will solve all her problems. Ultimately, the film uses horror to effectively convey a message that will hopefully resonate with individuals turning to plastic surgery as the only solution: changing your looks doesn’t necessarily change who you are inside.
