Cha Eun-woo, Moon Ga-young youth rom-com drama in the works
Hwang In-yeob, Moon Ga-young, Cha Eun-woo
The drama adaptation for webtoon True Beauty has confirmed their lead actors: Moon Ga-young (Find Me in Your Memory), Cha Eun-woo (Rookie Historian Gu Hae-ryung), and Hwang In-yeob (Tale of Nokdu).
In this rom-com drama, Moon Ga-young plays a high school student who has no self-confidence about her appearance until she discovers the transformative power of makeup. Overnight, she turns into a goddess of beauty who hates to show her bare, makeup-less face.
Cha Eun-woo plays a selfish um-chin-ah (slang translation: “mother’s friend’s kid who always seems better than you at everything”) who has a hidden emotional scar that no one knows about. From appearance to grades to basketball skill, he’s top class. Although he’s the object of much interest and affection, he’s like a cold, brick wall when it comes to others.
Finally, rounding out the love triangle, we have Hwang In-yeob who plays an equally handsome boy. He’s the typical second lead who is warm and sweet but has a macho appearance.
True Beauty, written by Lee Shi-eun (Top Star Yoo-baek) and directed by Kim Sang-hyeob (Extraordinary You), will begin airing in the latter half of this year on tvN.
