True Beauty: Episodes 5-6 Open Thread

With confusing heroes playing with her emotions, and some nightmarish encounters with her past, our heroine is forced to think about who she truly is. Are there people out there who will see past her bare face and instead be able to see her for what — and who — she truly is?

 
EPISODES 5-6 WEECAP

As we saw at the end of last week’s episodes, Seo-joon is throwing on the charm for Joo-kyung’s benefit. The whole school might be swooning over the attention he’s paying her, and he’s hilariously goaded on by his hoard of devoted followers, but the very person he wants a reaction from isn’t offering it up. On the contrary, he’s getting the opposite of what he wants: irritation, refusal to flirt back, and even an accidental face of rice.

Joo-kyung doesn’t buy his sincerity at all — plus, she’s too busy swooning over Soo-ho, and their growing closeness. In one telling detail, Joo-kyung rejects the juice gifted by Seo-joon, but then secretly swoons over Soo-ho when he later gives her some. She even saves the plastic juice bottle afterwards and uses it to store her make-up (I identify far too well with a girl that saves random trite objects because of their emotional significance — nice bit of detail, Show!).

It becomes clear to Joo-kyung (and us), that Soo-ho is crushing on her pretty hard, and that the feeling is reciprocated (proof: her hilarious The King reenactment). Soo-ho makes up dumb excuses to see her, and they even share another fall-into-your-arms incident. They’re sweet, they’re awkward, they’re a joy to watch. But things have to pull apart this budding romance, right? It’s too soon for this adorable happy ending. Indeed, a new obstacle emerges in the form of Seo-joon’s anger against Soo-ho for the death of their friend.

Seo-joon doesn’t waste an opportunity to torment Soo-ho, and lay all the blame he can on him for their friend’s suicide. And Soo-ho, in turn, being so much more sensitive than the cold facade he fakes, crumbles under the blame, and even feels guilt.

Soo-ho warns Seo-joon not to use Joo-kyung to get back at him, but the malice he feels is enough to make him pull away from Joo-kyung quite cruelly. Poor girl is confused and hurt, and who can blame her.

Despite acting like a jerk to his friend, it’s clear Seo-joon is actually a good dude. He’s still grieving for his friend and is channeling his hurt to the wrong person (for now). He’s a devoted son and a good older brother. He’s also hysterical — yes, I’m talking about the scene where he’s rocking out in his boxers and bathrobe (to my favorite “Okey Dokey Yo,” no less).

The only thing better than this scene, was the scene’s ending: Seo-joon plays it cool when he turns around and realizes in horror that Joo-kyung is sitting in the middle of his living room watching him, but he can’t hold it together long, and runs into his room and freaks out like a schoolgirl.

There’s a lot of flirty and a lot of silly in our episodes this week (including unni’s crush and the homeroom teacher’s lack of eyebrow horror lol) but there’s also a good dose of serious, too. It’s serious mixed with sweet, though, and I kinda love how True Beauty does that.

One example of this is when Joo-kyung realizes, thanks to the insignia on Soo-ho’s hoodie, that it was him that saved her on the roof that night. However much of a stretch this is (if she was too blind to recognize anything about his appearance, how did she recognize a tiny stitched symbol?), I care not — I’m all about the lovely moments this creates for them.

Soo-ho is pushed to the brink in a moment of grief over his friend, and heads to the fateful rooftop. Joo-kyung, having stitched it all together, searches for him — it’s quite a touching little scene, with Soo-ho distraught, and Joo-kyung offering him such heartfelt comfort. (God bless Moon Ga-young and her acting skills; she is literally pulling all the weight in this scene. Good thing she’s a rockstar.)

While the rooftop moment was definitely the emotional high point this week, there’s another bit of plot that’s important not only because it’s wonderful, but because it makes Joo-kyung question if being terrified to show her bare face is how she really wants to live.

Joo-kyung witnesses the bullying of SEO GO-WOON (newbie Yeo Joo-ha), a girl in her brother’s grade, who’s being tormented for her looks much like Joo-kyung herself was. (For the record, I love how this show makes adorable girls “ugly” by giving them bad skin, huge black glasses, and even huger black eyebrows.)

Go-woon is so much like Joon-kyung it’s almost startling — and oh-so-satisfying to see Joo-kyung take her under her wing. Whether it’s talking her off a ledge, defending her against the bullies, or teaching her some make-up skills of her own, Joo-kyung’s kind-heartedness really shines. This isn’t lost on Seo-joon either, when we learn (yay, super fun reveal!) that Go-woon is his adored little sister.

Joo-kyung can never seem to escape the frights of her past for long. She’s out at the jjimjilbang with her sister, and has to dodge Seo-joon and crew. Then, she’s grabbing hamburgers and has to dodge the bullies from her old school — except that doesn’t go so well, since the bully ring leader is just beyond cruel, and Joo-kyung practically disintegrates in fear in front of them. I’ve never been so happy for Soo-ho to appear out of thin air and epicly save the day (and the wallet).

Joo-kyung might have escaped this time, but the cat is out of the bag by the end of this week’s episodes. Joo-kyung’s nemesis is actually her follower on SNS (haha), she’s close to Seo-joon’s nemesis, and sure enough this means a nemesis sandwich.

Not only do these baddies put together that “pretty” and “ugly” Joo-kyung are the same girl, but they’re ready to kidnap her to wage a war against Seo-joon. Which they do. And then this plot point reaches a Boys Before Flowers pitch (and that’s not a complaint!).

We end our episodes with an epic face-off at the noraebang that’s so ridiculous and funny and swoony that it’s hard not to giggle with pleasure while watching. I love the world of this story. I love knowing that no matter what mayhem and mischief befalls Joo-kyung, she’s got two heroes with a lot of fight at the ready to protect her. And I love that the story keeps flinging around the crazy as much as they do this heartfelt cuteness.

And so much lovestruck! From Seo-joon to Soo-ho to Joo-kyung’s brother and sister, each character has their own delightful lovestruck moment. And then there’s me — equally lovestruck with this wonderful, crazy little drama.

as someone who read the webtoon im so happy that the story and the plot is different from the original. i really wish the writer dont focused on the love triangle plot and focused more on character development and Seojun x Suho bromance.
i do understand Suho blaming himself for his friend's death but is it Suho's fault? i dont think so.

I didn’t expect much from this drama and although I liked the first episode I kind of left the drama hanging midway through episode 2, and then I binge watched the rest of the episodes till now and I’m so glad the episodes piled up because I love it! It’s so cracktastic in a good way, I really think it’s because of Moon Ga-young, she carries both the emotional and comedy aspect of this drama, she is the heart of this drama!

I love Seo-jun as well! He is so childish and dorky which is the opposite to what I expected him to be and I’m happy about it, I love Seo-jun and Joo-kyeong’s bickering relationship, I want them to be besties because they have such a fun dynamic but now that Seo-jun is starting to like her I guess it won’t last much longer,

Also I can’t explain how much I loved that last scene with everyone there to save Joo-gyeong, although cheesy, it was so chaotic and fun to watch I was laughing throughout that scene, I’m sad it’s not airing next week, I’m really looking forward to the next episodes!

These episodes were like other teen dramas with all the clichés. But Joo-kyung is such a lovely and funny character, it didn't bother me so much. Moon Ga Young is killing it in this role. The PD is good to choose his FLs.

Most of these typical cliched teen-dramas suffer because they are weak in the FL-department, despite doing all other sidey things right...I love how relatable her character is here & how authentically MGY portrays her :D

Thanks for the recap. I had a couple of points -- I think she recognized the symbol -- his initials, because they are on the back of the sweater. And since she was on his back for about 20 stories, she could recognize it, as she' obviously near-sighted. So she can see quite well close-up, but not so well with distances.

The other point I disagree with, but I could be wrong, is that the people from her old school recognizing her "ugly" side is the same as the pretty side. I think they just recognized that Seojun's girlfriend is the same girl that the female bully likes on Stargram.

Now for some regular stuff. I love watching Moon Ga Young as Ju Kyung. She does a great job being the girl next door at the comic shop. She also is simply adorable when she teases Seojun about his boxers. I know I would love that as much as he did. You can't help but smile.

The dinner at her house was her time to be embarrassed, and it was fun to see her end up in Suho's lap when fighting with her brother. I'm looking forward to episode 7 -- I heard that the episodes would be delayed though -- so I'm very sad about that. I will have to find something else to tide me over until the next episodes come out.

@brian
Thumbs up for your inputs. I really hope the bullies have yet to identify her as the same “ugly” Im Joo Kyung. I guess at this point they dunno otherwise they might try to splash water on her face to remove her makeup, being such nasty hooligans.

I am especially happy Su Ho made an effort to accept her mom’s invitation. I think the poor boy has been craving for a caring mother, home cooked meal and dinner time with a family, albeit, a rather dysfunctional one. And of course the irresistible company of the dense Joo Kyung.

I must say these two episodes are less comical compared to previous episodes eg audition, etc. But I am not complaining as both Su Ho and Joo Kyung are lovely to watch onscreen.

I didn't talk too much about episode 5, because that was the episode where Suho is so mean to her. But earlier parts of the show are quite cute, especially when they are playing basketball together. Ju Kyung is actually quite quiet in school and does her best not to stand out, but here, when she's one on one with Suho she's herself. Showing him how to shoot and giving her expert opinion. It's no wonder he's attracted to her so much right there, as you can see her personality blooming. It's also why he takes advantage of the situation to hug her even more tightly, so that she can smell his new laundry detergent, LOL.

It's also cute that she puts on a pig costume -- she looks so adorable in it too. I remember back in the first episode she wears a pig hat when she's taking pictures with sooa and soojin. Good times. I love shows that are relaxing and where the tough issues aren't that serious. Of course it's common for dramas to add ridiculous amounts of dramatic tension with things like kidnapping and murder. I hope they can get away from the kidnapping and what not in future episodes and just expand on their character arcs.

I think her family is just as bad as his is. All are rather selfish individuals, the mother and brother have strong nasty sides who like to belittle the FL, the father and brother are thieves who steal from their own family members. Other than the older sister, I do not like her family at all.

Agreed with the myopic thing, as I am one myself, with really thick glasses....I am extra quick to notice details 'closeby'...kind of like an extra super-power gifted by the poetic universe, which otherwise makes me blind to stuff far away xD
Agreed with the bullies not recognising her as their old classmate! I thought that too....they just connected the two girls on insta and 'seojun's gf'...
I was worried initially JK will end up 'friend-zoning' Seojun....but her 'underpants' reaction tells me its gonna be worse...
She will 'brother-zone' him....just watch xD xD

I think the ex-school bullies still hasn’t figured out the ugly LJK and pretty LJK are one. What I understood from that billiard scene is them just identifying SJ’s “girlfriend” as the same popular Stargram girl that the mean girl is following. And that’s how they located her to ‘kidnap’ her. I actually didn’t get why they didn’t piece it together that she’s the ugly LJK also but I was thinking that maybe they looked down at the ugly LJK so much that they never would think she can be the same pretty LJK, especially since their Korean names could be common.

Seo-Joon’s flirting and failing was hilarious to see. Him pulling all the old school tricks and getting absolutely nowhere was hilarious to watch.

I am a bit annoyed with him constantly blaming Su Ho for the suicide. I am sure they will have to sit down and talk about it soon.

About the sweatshirt symbol. I think she saw it up close while being on his back while he climbed down 15/20 odd floors. She probably focused on it since it was something she could see/read. In a way I am glad she finally knows he was the one on the terrace and also knows about his friend.

Also, the home room teacher Madona/eyebrow ref so funny!!

Thanks for the weecap @missvictrix! I’m not ashamed to say I’ve watched the Okey Dokey scene several times. 🤣 Seo-joon is a great character; he looks like a bad boy who’s really more of a dork. His rage against Su-ho is out of a sense of loyalty towards their dead friend. But he is starting to see how much Su-ho already suffers from guilt. I hope the two guys can talk it out soon.

I haven’t yet forgiven Su-ho for causing Ju-kyung pain. He needs to apologise and make up for saying “he was only nice out of pity”. That was too cruel. I don’t want to see Ju-kyung with a guy who pushes her away one day and acts all swoony the next. He also needs help with his anxiety attacks.

I hope Ju-kyung finds the courage to just be herself, like Seo-Joon’s little sister. It’s difficult though if her own family considers her ugly 😢 At this point all she needs is acne treatment really, but I guess we’re supposed to think she’s ugly or something without make up? Smh

Finally, I love Unni but she needs to stop drinking! Her kiss with Teacher was sooo cute 😍

I am finding LJK’s brother so funny these past eps. Him riding SJ’s bike, pretending to be Ri Jung Hyuk from CLOY, had be laughing to stitches. Then I liked so much his scene with SH where he’s threatening him, interrogating him and asking him not to break his sister’s heart by giving her false hopes — being protective of her but, at the same time, not believing SH when he admitted he likes his noona, thinking it’s his big joke.

I actually hoped SH would open up to LJK about their locker room misunderstanding after being honest with the brother. I hope he does that in the next episode. I liked the bar action scenes with SH finding LJK first and showing up again as her knight in shining armour. The show has a lot of cheesy tripes but so fun to watch.

I thoroughly enjoyed JK's family BBQ dinner with Suho. My skin crawled at just how much JK's mother was simpering over Suho, and I laughed at JK's utter consternation at the over-the-top dysfunctional-ness of her family in full display before her crush.

The noraebang brawl in Ep 6 also stood out to me because it showed Seojun realising a few of important things: his feelings for JK and also JK's feelings for Suho, and vice-versa. I laughed at the part when Seojun pulled Suho off the gang leader, but when Seojun saw how terrified JK was, he jumped on the gang leader and started wailing on him too. The parts when Seojun sees JK's concern for Suho (and when he realises Suho's feelings for JK are reciprocated, and thus, feels the pain of being sidelined) were beautiful to watch because it was done without a single word exchanged. I also enjoyed the arrival of the calvary in the form of Sujin, Sua, and Sua's boyfriend because they didn't hesitate to jump right in the brawl, no questions asked.

One thing I am trying to figure out though, is why Suho said those things to push JK away and get her to resent him. Was it driven by his guilt over his friend's death (and perhaps partial belief that like Seojun said, he didn't deserve to smile ever again) or by fear that JK would reject him if she found out his role in his friend's death? Perhaps I missed something.

I belive so Suho words to JK is because of his guilt and also fueled by SJ comments/anger as he feel responsibility for their friend death. I think therefor he also never made new friends and did take on this cold front. He clearly do not feel that he can be a good friend for anyone. That until JK literary stumbling into his life. So a moment of weakness he remember that he should not make a new friend. But then he never had someone to talk too about this so I am glad in the end he did open up to JK as she breaking down the walls he have build.

And I think what SJ told him that he has no right to be happy, and that he causes grief only to people he loves. Though I am not a fan of that trope of hurting the other person with words you don’t mean to push them away.

@silje That's a good point, about Suho putting up walls so no one can get close after his friend's death. When I think about it, it also puts his actions more into context, as in this is also his way of punishing himself.

I don't know why, but the whole family dynamics (verbally abusive mom, kinda sad and sweet dad, mom simping over potential son-in law, the extravagant meal prepared by mom when she regularly doesn't even cook, & Suho sharing probably his first meal amongst a tight-knit family, him not having a mom....etc.) REALLY gave me glimpses of Strong Woman Do Bong Soon ^^

Okey Dokey is my new crack. 😂 I actually haven't heard this song before and it's not a recent one.
(FYI: It's spelled wrong on Spotify. "Okay" instead of "Okey" >_>)

Tbh, EP 5 was ended on a weak note. This drama excels at the lighter moments that are sweet and funny. There wasn't enough history/scenes given about Soo Ho and his friend. I felt bad for him, but his breakdown didn't get any tears out of me. On the other hand, teary-eyed Joo Kyung during Go Woon's solo performance got me. It was lovely to see Go Woon singing with confidence and the song itself was uplifting. I loved that Joo kyung looked out for her in more ways than one. And, slowly but surely, she is reflecting on her own life.

Han Seo Joon is awesome. Not a ice cold bad boy, but a dorky one. The contrasting images makes him fun. Before these episodes aired, new stills were sneaked about shocked Joo Kyung seeing him shirtless. I thought it was his moment where he'd look ultra cool and suave. BUT NOPE.
I was half laughing and half cringing at his Okey Dokey scene. Pouring water from his bottle over his head after his shower???! Who does that? 💀

I haven't watched The King: Eternal Monarch, but omgyes, I thought I recognized the reenactment, missvictrix! White knight arriving on his horse to save the day. Pfft.

The squabbles between Joo Kyung and her little brother always looked realistic. He can be super annoying, but it was cute when he started sizing up Soo Ho.

EP 6 ended well. It had tension, suspense, and then it had me laughing with all the silly fighting moves. Joo Kyung's friends coming in to save her was nice. But oh no, Seo Joon noticed Joo Kyung's feelings towards Soo Ho and saw the love triangle clear as day. Dreading the heartbreak.

Even though Ju-young is Satan's spawn, he is secretly protective of his noona like when he smacked his friend for asking him to introduce them when he had a girlfriend. I love when Ju-young confronted (future brother-in-law) Su-ho, who has now admitted to two people he likes Ju-gyeong. I wish Mom asked him to tutor her.

I still haven't forgiven Su-ho for never apologizing to Ju-gyeong for purposely hurting her feelings and lying he was only pitying her, but my heart skipped a beat when she accidentally sent him her teasing photo and he said, "She's driving me crazy." flails, Su-ho finally told Ju-gyeong she's pretty without makeup! I was smiling from ear to ear at their texts over their movie date. I love how she always ends up having to return a piece of his clothing: uniform, hoodie, and now hat.

Ju-gyeong has the bestest friends ever. Su-a, Su-jin, and Tae-hoon all rushed out to save her. I keep forgetting Ju-gyeong is unrecognizable with makeup because I freaked out when her bullies approached her on the bus, but apparently they think the Instagram influencer just has the same name? I was so proud of Ju-gyeong for standing up against the bullies for Go-woon. She wasn't scared like Su-jin told her to be.

I hate how you took away cha Eunwoo's credit from rooftop scene. Both moon ka young & Cha Eunwoo did amazing in that scene. Kmedia & netizens who usually hate on Eunwoo's acting also praised him for this scene but I forgot even before this drama started to showed your displeasure for him. I miss javabeans & girlfriday. Dramabeans used to be fun & unbiased. I remember coming here for the recap of Lee Jong suk, Hyun bin, ji sung & ji Chang wook dramas. Are javabeans & girlfriday still here? The recap used to be in depth, unbiased & were not full of prejudice. Good old days.

Anyway, I loved episode 5&6. I loved how the story is going. I felt for Suho's panic attack, LJK hurtful eyes when Suho was mean. Their mushy moments & the last scene when you can see their feelings for each other. Can't wait for episode 7&8

I don't know about opinions but I do remember their recaps. Girl Friday's recaps were especially fun to read. Although not sure about what you mean about the roof top scene. This was a wee-cap so I'm guessing they cut out a lot of stuff from what you would get from a full re-cap.

Anyway, I seem to remember seeing GF and JB on youtube or something, I think they were working on a different project or maybe different careers?

shine21 means that people are commenting that the rooftop scene was only good because of Moon Ka-Young, and it's not fair because Cha Eun-Woo did a good job, too. The issue isn't that details were left out because of the wee cap format, but because of personal opinions that everyone follows. If the person writing the recap likes or doesn't like an actor or character, then most of the beanies automatically agree. It didn't use to be that way here, so I think shine21 is just nostalgic for the past.

Thank you for explaining. Yes, I meant both did great but @missvictrix specifically wrote the scene got lifted thanks to MGY was a way of her dissing CEW. I did read her previous post too where even before drama started she said how she will have SLS. Previously, reviews were unbiased, without dissing & discrediting anyone. That's why I said. Both CEW & MGY are doing great & you hope unbiased review from reviewers at least

Agreed. It’s always so annoying to have recappers who are biased against an actor, and can’t keep their snide comments out of their recaps. That’s why I rarely read rec as ps here anymore. I only come when I want to get info or opinion about a scene. (Like right now - I’m looking for the name of the idol friend in the drama who committed suicide).

Also, CEW is doing a great job. Not to mention that he looks EXACTLY like the webtoon character, which isn’t surprising as the webtoon creator said she had CEW in mind when she created SuHo. She must be very happy to have him playing the character she imagined as looking like him!

As much as I still enjoy dramabeans as a community in general, I do dislike the actor like or dislike biased reviews and comments.
I had the same feeling as you when reading about the rooftop scene. I really think that Eun Woo did a good job and also as someone who has suffered from (and sometimes still does) panic attacks, I felt that his portrayal of them in these episodes was quite realistic. The body language was very spot on, it is not something that comes out in a very expressive face anyway, because your mind kinda goes blank and focuses only on specific things. It is kind of like an uncontrollable fear that makes your knees give out. At least from my experience.

But I would be lying if I'd said I didn't miss girlfriday and javabeans times in this site. They had a very relatable vibe, often recapping with so much personal commentary, that it felt like watching an episode again with a friend. Lately, it is just wee-caps or open threads and with full recaps only having personal commentary in the end.
That being said, everyone has a life and is busy (and has different writing styles), so I still appreciate every single one of the beanies staff members still providing us with recaps :)
Without dramabeans my drama watching simply can not be complete!

Thank you for wee-capping this delightful show @missvictrix. For some reason I started it over the weekend and then binged and laughed so much. And THEN found out I have to wait until next week to watch the next episodes.
Our FL lead may think that she is unlovable because she is 'ugly' *pfffffttt* more no matter what she looks like her heart is HUGE and caring to everyone. That is her strength.

Her mom and little brother are so hard to stomach with their cruelty to her and dad, but I'm hoping the standard kdrama tropes will prevail and they both too will learn some hard lessons along the way.

Overall I'm enjoying this show and look forward to how she comes to realize her own worth and strength(s) no matter what she looks like on the outside.

I need a hearing test. is it me, or did JK call SH "oppa" in the park? (ep 5, when SH's jacket was still damp, so JK couldn't return it yet.) did SH refer to himself as "oppa"? if so, since when? and what does this mean? what little hanggul I know isn't helping me right now.

2. QUESTION for those who speak Korean - is it me or was JK calling SH "oppa" at the park? If so, when did this start? I wish I spoke Korean... I miss so much dialogue!

Hi! Thank you for the recap! By any chance, does anyone know the name of the song the boys who kidnapped Joo-Kyung were singing while at the noraebang? It was quite catchy! Ty!

It's a very cliche plotline but the cast and characters make it really enjoyable. I'm glad that they focused more on the friendship between Suho and Seojun in the drama. I really want to see what they're going to do with Sujin's character since the artist of the webtoon seemed to have cut her out earlier than planned, considering how her storyline was just starting when she suddenly stopped appearing. Sujin is so much nicer to Ju Gyeong here that I really hope their friendship doesn't break because of Suho. Also, I really cannot wait for Selena to meet Ju Gyeong

I love this drama more and more especially seojun!! He appears as tough but he is actually getting cuter and cuter :’) They chose the actors really well, moon gayoung just fits jukyung like a puzzle piece, dorky and caring. I was initially team suho but im enjoying jukyung x seojun scenes more and more now ;))
