Knowing how Javascript works under the hood will help you avoid bugs and debugging your code faster. Also, keep in mind that making something work doesn't mean it is the right way, you should think of the time and memory usage.
Making something efficient is the hardest part but you can't achieve it without knowing how JavaScript works under the hood.
Besides, JavaScript works differently than other languages and there are a lot of weird things in it. Therefore you should go deeper and understand how it works and why it works like that.
