In the webtoon version, Kim Mo Mi (Lee Han Byul) experiences a lot of abuse because of her unattractive face. To fill the emptiness in her heart, she seeks attention by becoming a streamer. Even though in the end the performer of ‘Mask Girl’ was actually known as a cheap streamer, even though that was not what Kim Mo Mi wanted.

In the webtoon version, Kim Mo Mi is indeed raising money to do plastic surgery because she is disappointed with her face. So whether there is a murder tragedy or not, Kim Mo Mi remains a victim of lookism who wants to change her destiny by undergoing plastic surgery.

2. There are redundant scenes

There is a scene that only appears in the drama version but not in the webtoon version. That is when Kim Mo Mi is on the train and insists on being a victim of harassment by a man.

Readers of the webtoon Mask Girl find Kim Mo Mi’s actions strange. the drama Mask Girl seems to want to reveal the abnormal character of Kim Mo Mi in one scene that is not quite right.

3. The timeline when Kim Mo Mi was pregnant is ambiguous

The time span between Kim Mo Mi being harassed by Oh Ju Nam (Ahn Jae Hong) and giving birth was actually quite wide. If it is true that Kim Mi Mo (Shin Ye Seo) is Oh Ju Nam’s child, then when he killed Oh Ju Nam, Kim Mo Mi was considered pregnant.

Plus the time needed to recover from plastic surgery, apply for jobs and be friends with Kim Chun Ae (Han Jae Y), then Kim Mo Mi’s (Nana) stomach should have grown bigger by then. However, there were no signs of pregnancy in Kim Mo Mi other than one simple morning sickness scene. Viewers consider this ambiguous timeline to be a plot hole in the drama Mask Girl.

4. Vulgar scenes without a clear purpose
