In January 2023, Netflix provided as part of their 2023 slate reveal for their Korean lineup a new synopsis which is as follows:
“Mask Girl is a story about Kim Mo-mi, an ordinary office worker by day who is insecure about her appearance and a live-streamer by night who covers up her face with a mask, as she becomes embroiled in an unforeseen incident and undergoes a dramatic turn of events.
