Hello Bookworms 🙂 I am so excited to bring this post , last night I finished True Beauty and well I am so excited to write the post. After 16 emotional and energetic episodes, charged with romance and complicated by themes of self-worth and social acceptance, True Beauty opted for the safer path. At its heart, the show is a youth romance and, in the end, that’s exactly what it gave its audience. I loved the drama so much like the vibes , freshness and youthfulness of the drama is perfect. At its heart, the show is a youth romance , can’t help swooning .
4.5 perfect stars
After 16 emotional and energetic episodes, charged with romance and complicated by themes of self-worth and social acceptance, True Beauty opted for the safer path. At its heart, the show is a youth romance and, in the end, that’s exactly what it gave its audience. With any romcom (romance-comedy) Korean drama comes its many clichés and tropes. Though “True Beauty” has some of the most common stereotypes (love triangles, the Cinderella story, childhood friends, etc.), it has proven to nail them fairly well and even add its own twists to them.
Compared to the webtoon it was based on, the show was less ambiguous about its central love triangle. While Seo-jun has been an engaging and full-bodied character throughout, his unrequited love for Ju-kyoung has been just that. Ju-kyoung has remained – rather astonishingly – oblivious to his affections and there’s never really been any doubt that she would end up with Su-ho.
“True Beauty” is about a high school girl, named Lim Jugyeong, who is bullied due to her bare face being “ugly.” However, she learns how to apply makeup from YouTube. When she transfers to a new high school, her classmates call her a “goddess.” The only person who has seen her bare face is the cold and handsome Lee Suho. The show was definitely humorous and comical, but unfortunately quite unrealistic at times. But that was hardly a concern for me , I enjoyed it thoroughly. SPECIAL MENTION – HAN SEOJUN , he didn’t get the girl but got my heart . He was just so adorable and his beautiful song in the finale episode. Hwang Inyeop’s acting was my personal favorite and he portrayed his cool yet adorable character really well. In my personal opinion, I think Hwang Inyeop and his character carried the show and made it a lot more worth watching.
Like other viewers, I truly enjoyed watching “True Beauty” and would strongly suggest this drama to others looking for a new rom-com show to watch! Did you watch this drama ?? What are your thoughts about this drama ? Let us chat in the Comment Section .
