Have you ever heard about Kieu in an epic poem (The Tale of Kiều) written by Nguyen Du? I doubt you will change your mind after you read this poem :)

I think it should be "beauty is a disadvantage". Adding the word "being" can throw one off

Yes, and I think that is also more a literal translation to boot.

Why is this not 'vẻ đẹp là một bất lợi'

I have the same question as StewartMM

"Xinh đẹp trở thành một bất lợi" Câu này mới đúng tình huống này. Bọn Duolingo nhảm nhí này.

Cụm từ "trở thành" của bạn "đúng" trong tình huống khác ; còn câu hỏi này là "is a" ("là một"), chứ không phải là "to become" (trở thành).

~ This question is "is a" not "to become" as your answer.

"ve dep la mot su bat loi"
