Jung has a secret underneath her face mask: her mustache. Her boyfriend tells her that he loves her, even with her mustache, but he indirectly forces her to do something about it. She finally decides to get surgery to remove her mustache which has made her different from other females. This witty, comic piece sharply criticizes a society that enforces what is appropriate and not, strictly based on gender division. (Jay Sohn)
