First script reading for tvN’s True Beauty with Moon Ga-young, Cha Eun-woo, Hwang In-yub
New stills have been released featuring the cast of tvN’s new rom-com True Beauty, who recently gathered for the drama’s first script reading.
Based on a popular webtoon by the same title, the drama stars Moon Ga-young (Find Me in Your Memory) as a high school student named Im Joo-kyung. She has a bright and affectionate personality, and is generally quite optimistic. However, her biggest struggle and insecurity is her natural appearance, and she becomes overly reliant on cosmetics to make herself look beautiful in her eyes.
Enter fellow student Cha Eun-woo (Rookie Historian Gu Hae-ryung), who plays Lee Su-ho. As a Darcy-like character, he appears aloof and cold but is actually a sweet puppy on the inside. Naturally, he’s hiding his own insecurities and fears. However, he and Moon Ga-young end up sharing their secrets with each other and they bond over their individual insecurities. As their relationship grows, they reassure and encourage one another to realize their own self-worth.
Hwang In-yub (Eighteen Again) takes on the role of Han Seo-joon, another student at their high school. He’s described as wild and rough around the edges, but becomes soft-hearted and warm around his mother.
Supporting cast who were also present at the reading included Oh Eui-shik (Hi Bye, Mama!), Im Se-mi (I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day), Park Yoo-na (Hotel del Luna), Park Ho-san (Will You Have Dinner With me), and Jang Hye-jin (Memorials) among others.
Writing for the drama is Lee Shi-eun (Top Star Yoo Baek) and directing will be helmed by PD Kim Sang-hyeob (Extraordinary You).
tvN rom-com True Beauty is currently set to premiere towards the end of year in December, and will be broadcasting Wednesdays and Thursdays.
