1. A multilayer ceramic capacitor, comprising:
a body including a dielectric layer and first and second internal electrodes disposed with the dielectric layer interposed therebetween in a stacking direction, the body including a first surface and a second surface opposing each other in the stacking direction;
a first through electrode penetrating the body and connected to the first internal electrode;
a second through electrode penetrating the body and connected to the second internal electrode;
first and second external electrodes disposed on the first surface and the second surface, respectively, and connected to the first through electrode; and
third and fourth external electrodes disposed on the first surface and the second surface, respectively, to be spaced apart from the first and second external electrodes and connected to the second through electrode,
wherein the first surface has different brightness or color from the second surface,
wherein the first and second through electrodes protrude outwardly from the body through, among the first and second surfaces, only one of the first surface or the second surface of the body, and
wherein the second and fourth external electrodes penetrate the second surface so as to directly contact the first and second through electrodes, respectively, inside the body.
