"Lookism" Webtoon / Naver X Dispatch

Welcome back to our series of the cast that is desired by Koreans for a webtoon adaptation. We previously covered “Free Draw“, “The Moon That Rises In The Day”, “Love Alarm“, “Something About Us”, “Cohabit That Is Knocking Me Over With A Feather”, “True Beauty”, “Sweet Home”, “A Good Day To Be A Dog”, “Itaewon Class” and more.

In 2019, numerous webtoons had been announced to be adapted on dramas. Many webtoon readers are hoping to see “Lookism” included in this list of adaptations, but it is not the case -for now at least. There is no plan of adaptation “Lookism” into drama yet.

“Lookism” (“외모지상주의”) by TaeJoon Park is one of the most popular Korean webtoons overseas. It tells the story of an unattractive guy who by miracle started to have 2 different bodies, a handsome one and an unattractive one. The webtoon started back in Nov. 2014.

PLEASE ADAPT THIS WEBTOON INTO DRAMA AMD DONT CHANGE THE PLOT I’M SO SURE ITLL BE A BIG HIT IF PLAYED CORRECTLY AND BY THE CORRECT CASTING. If they don’t change the plot like CHINESE version it’ll attract not only female watchers but also males. I beg you don’t change the plot if you make this drama ! 😩😔 My opinion on the characters 1 : Daniel park = Mam Joo Hyuk 2 : Jay Hong = SHINee’s TAEMIN 3 : Vasco = Jay Park 4 : Zack Lee = Kim Woo Bin ( PLEASE / JAEBAL) LET IT BE… Read more »

Also SF9’s Rowoon (played Haru in extraordinary you ) really resembles the character more than the ones you mentioned. I hope they cast him as the lead. We’d love to see him in another drama ♥️

I think Chan Eunwoo should be Hyunsuk/Daniel!! They look so similar, especially now that lookism has had a bit of an art style change!

But they also cast him in True beauty and many other dramas. His visuals are so comic like that’s why he always suits the role but I hope they give others a chance to in my opinion Songkang B and SF9’s Rowoon ( Extraordinary You’s Haru ) really resembles Eun Woo and the character so I hope they give those 2 a chance. Could be any of the 2.
