Don't forget that you are the ones who shape your live.

Face Maker is a type of drama that contains many episodes, however each episode will have its own story and that story will end within one episode.

Face Maker is about a highly skilled surgeon who used to work for US Witness Protection Program. He opens his own plastic surgery clinic in Japan and he's also known as the Face Maker in the black market. His job is to change the face of his client by substituting it with someone else's face. It's something like face exchanging, but it's NOT only face exchanging...

The clients are usually people who suffer or not satisfy with their lives, so they want to take on new faces with the hope to change their lives. There is no cost for face changing but you have to exchange your face in return. After the surgery, you can go on to live your new better(?) life.

The other role of the Face Maker is he will purposely go to see his previous client when his/her face is taken by another person. He will not tell the new client about the story of the face that he/she has chosen as the new face. The face can belong to anyone from a detective, mafia boss, teacher, to a serial killer.

The main message of this drama is even though you can change your appearance but you can never change who you are. You might look differently and live a different life, in the end, you are still you.

Why do these clients want to change their faces? The common reason is that they hate their lives. People are always seeking for a better life. They want better lives but they forget that they are the ones who shape their lives.
