I think lee Jae-Wook deserves to play the role of Seojun. Not only cuz he looks super alike but he has solid and amazing ass acting talent.

I strongly recommend Hwang Hyun-jin of Stray Kids to act as Han Seojun of True Beauty. ?❤️ He is perfectly molded for Seojun's character. That aura, charisma, and attitude he showed on A-Teen 2 was already sufficient enough to prove that he fits the role. I'm telling y'all, he is made for this drama!

Seojoon is not the 2nd lead for crist sake. Jugyeong falls in love with him in the webtoon, they're endgame.

We don’t know till the end, and he was introduced after Suho. If Jukyeong really was going to end up with seojun, why is Suho back in korea?
