"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.

I have already watched the Chinese version of this webtoon and it was actually pretty good but it just doesn't go along with the webtoon which kinda disappointed me. But it was a good show nonetheless.

i dont think live a ction would fit to this manhwa , since all the story is connect to each other, so it would be hard to portrayed in 16 eps. but if its true, i imagining Hyung Suk played by Song Kang, Jin played by Jang ki Yong / Lee JAe Wook, theyre not only having the looks, but theyre acting is so good..

I don’t really think it’s a good idea for an drama adaptation of this webtoon. Plus none of these idols would fit the characters especially eunwoo as the role of Eli... eunwoo acting sucks if they do make a drama I really hope they don’t cast him. He ruins every drama he’s in I really wish they never casted him in true beauty

If lookism real ends up having an adaptation hopefully it would be a longer series, not just the usual 16-long episodes of kdramas cuz it'll just end up being rushed and loose alot of the story's value and important parts

Don't think that a live-action would be a good idea for this manhwa. If you do follow this serie, you will know that this manhwa is of the action and fighting genre, not like the other simple highschool or romance ones. Hard to explain but just read all the chapter up to now and you wil understand when I said that this manhwa can't be adapted to a live-action while still keep its values

I guess the new K-pop idol named Haruto watanable will look good as Daniel.

Hmm... What about Rowoon SF9 as Daniel? The character suits Rowoon best I think. Just my opinion okay. But Rowoon is too tall. I don't think Daniel is the tallest among the characters.

To be honest, neither Eunwoo or Suho suitable for the role of Eli Jang. I mean, for the nice side of Eli, yes. They'll be perfect for that. But I cannot imagine either the two of them as the dangerous maniac Eli. We need someone who can put on two personalities at the same time. Someone mentioned V in the earlier comment and to be honest, I'm not an Army. Not even close and will never be. But somehow I can imagine V as Eli. He can put the sweet type Eli and the angry Eli at the same time.… Read more »
