On October 12, tvN’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “True Beauty” released photos from their first script reading.
“True Beauty” is a self-esteem building romantic comedy surrounding Joo Kyung (Moon Ga Young), who uses makeup to battle insecurities about her appearance. She meets Su Ho (ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo), who has wounds of his own, and they grow as they share their secrets with one another.
The drama is based on a popular webtoon of the same name and will feature Moon Ga Young, Cha Eun Woo, and Hwang In Yeob. It will be directed by producer Kim Sang Hyub, who was recognized for his work on “Extraordinary You.”
These members were in attendance at the script reading, along with Park Yoo Na, Park Ho San, Jang Hye Jin, Im Se Mi, Kim Min Ki, Park Hyun Jung, Oh Eui Sik, and Kim Byung Choon. Even though it was only their first reading, the actors sported explosive synergy with their passionate performances and perfect chemistry.
Moon Ga Young stated how much of an honor it is to work with the cast and that she will work hard to make it an exciting project until the end. Everyone was charmed by her determination and the positive energy she brought to her character, Im Joo Kyung.
Cha Eun Woo added to the heartening mood by wishing everyone to stay healthy and happy throughout the filming. He then completely transitioned into his character Lee Su Ho as he took on a cold demeanor with glaring eyes and blunt speech.
Hwang In Yeob, who will be playing the character of Han Seo Joon, instantly caught everyone’s attention with his low voice. All the actors who participated in the script reading played into their characters exceptionally well.
After the reading was over, director Kim Sang Hyub commented that the process had helped him get a clearer picture of the drama in his head. He added that he was looking forward to filming after seeing how well the actors took on their characters because they made it more interesting than he had expected. He promised to work on making the shooting process a fun and exciting one for everyone, and his statement was followed by applause from those at the reading.
The production team for “True Beauty” stated, “It was such a fun script reading that we lost track of time.” They added, “We were able to confirm the chemistry between Moon Ga Young, Cha Eun Woo, and Hwang In Yeob, as well as the rest of the cast, through this reading. We will see you again with a drama filled with sweet excitement and fun this winter, so please look forward to ‘True Beauty.’”
“True Beauty” will air its first episode in December and will be available on Viki.
