Based on the Korean webtoon of the same name, Mask Girl tells the story of Kim Mo Mi, an ordinary office worker. Self-conscious about her appearance but wanting to perform on stage, Kim Mo Mi becomes a broadcast streamer (BJ) named “Mask Girl” every night, dancing while wearing a mask to hide her face. Her life takes a sharp turn downhill when she becomes involved in a crime.


The song that Kim Mo Mi performed often, pre-plastic surgery and post-surgery, was a popular K-Pop song from 2009 called “Saturday Night.” This song was originally sung by singer and actress Son Dambi, who was one of the most popular solo artists of the 2000s.

“Saturday Night” was part of Son Dambi’s album Type “B”: Back to ’80s, which paid homage to the 80s. She wore sparkly outfits suitable for the 80s during her performances, and her signature dance of raising her right arm up and snapping was iconic.

Her diva presence inspired Kim Mo Mi in Mask Girl to dance and be a performer like Son Dambi. In her room, Kim Mo Mi dressed up like Son Dambi’s outfits for the song and performed the dance on her broadcast.

With the popularity of Mask Girl and the 14-year-old song finding its way into people’s playlists again, Son Dambi surprised fans with her most recent YouTube video. In a video from September 13 titled “Mask Girl Revealed For the First Time (Son Dambi — Saturday Night),” Son Dambi wore glittery makeup, colorful and sparkly clothes, a wig, and a mask that resembled Mask Girl.


With the narration, “Everyone, I’ll start the broadcast today,” Son Dambi danced to her song as if she were a Mask Girl performing as a BJ for her audience. It was edited in a very similar way to the version in the K-Drama, with the same computer sound effects that are played every time a fan shows financial support.


After the performance, she removed the mask and revealed her face with a big smile.


Son Dambi posted a snippet of this video to her Instagram with a caption expressing how she felt.
