KWAVEX / "True Beauty" Webtoon / ASTRO Official

ASTRO's Cha EunWoo is positively considering the lead role of the drama "True Beauty", his casting still needs to be confirmed. The drama is an adaptation from the high school romance webtoon of the same title written by Yaongyi.

The webtoon is popular all over the world (you can read in English here). It tells the growth story of a girl that turns into a goddess thanks to makeup skills. She rather dies than reveals her bare face. It tells her first love story with the only man that saw her without makeup.

The drama will air in the second half of 2020. For more about the characters of the webtoon and drama, you can check our previous article here.

Cha EunWoo if he accepts will act as Lee SuHo. But he would not be the only lead actor as Han SeoJoon is also a lead male character. Han SeoJoon is a tsundere, looking cold on the outside but has a warm heart. He is 187 cm and a model of the shopping mall of his friend.

Lee JaeWook was mentioned by Kpopmap readers (in the comments here). The actor proved he could draw viewers into his cold character in "Extraordinary You" and his solid acting skills are approved by many.

However, Lee JaeWook will act with Go Ara  in the drama "Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol". So, there might be some schedule conflict.

HyunJin was mentioned largely by Kpopmap readers (in the comments here). The idol looks alike with the webtoon character. Born in 2000, he would also be perfect to act as a high school student. He previously made a short appearance in the web drama "A-Teen 2". A lot of people are looking forward to his acting.

 

4- Lee DoHyun

Lee DoHyun would make a good choice for the role of Han SeoJoon. The rising actor has the perfect image for a cold high school student. He would match with Han SeoJoon perfectly.

However, his schedule might not work with "True Beauty" because he was cast in the drama "18 Again".

 

5- Kim YoungDae

Kim YoungDae is 185cm and born in 1996, which is perfect for the role. The actor also showed that he could perfectly act as a tsundere in "Extraordinary You" and in "When the Weather is Fine". He would do a great job if cast as Han SeoJoon.
