True Beauty, one of the most anticipated webtoon-based dramas of the year, has finally dropped its main posters featuring leads Moon Ga-young, Cha Eun-woo, and Hwang In-yeop.
The new Wednesday-Thursday drama from tvN is based on the popular webtoon by Yaongyi titled “Goddess Advent.” It follows a shy teen with acne issues who is skilled at doing makeup, which turns her into a social media star overnight. Afraid that she might lose her celebrity status, she keeps her bare face hidden and crafts lies about herself. The drama stars Moon Ga-young (Find Me in Your Memory) as Im Ju-gyeong, the central character of the story who becomes an internet star because of her makeup skills. She is joined by two male leads—the aloof and cold Lee Su-ho, played by Cha Eun-woo (Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung), and the social butterfly Han Seo-jun, played by Hwang In-yeop (18 Again).
The posters unveiled on November 11 look as if the webtoon came to life—from the characters and their expressions to the pastel-colored classroom that serves as the backdrop. Moon Ga-young is in pink with a full face of makeup. She holds a mirror that shows her bare face, complete with thick glasses, acne, and her hair in a ponytail. Cha Eun-woo sits to Moon’s left, gazing intently at the camera and exuding a cold but innocent vibe. Meanwhile, Hwang In-yeop stands to the side, looking intimidating with an outgoing but subdued bad-boy energy. In addition, the text on the poster asks “Can love be made with makeup?”
Fans of the webtoon are looking forward to seeing how the story will play out in the drama adaptation. Overall, the three leads exude overwhelming presence just by being close to each other, and anticipation is high for their performances among expecting fans.
True Beauty is set to premiere on tvN on December 9, taking over the time slot currently occupied by Tale of the Nine Tailed.
