Tatemae literally means the outward structure of a building. 

Honne refers to the true and inner voice of a person.

Conflict due to the fact that society values harmony.

The idea of ‘face/mask’ as it is called or tatemae is important to society.

Words that describe the contrast between a person’s true feelings and desires. And the behaviour and opinions one displays in public.

This was translated in the show through one woman and three conflicting personas:

The Classy, The Mask and The Seductive.
