Lee Min Ki To Love Changing Faces Of Seo Hyun Jin In Upcoming jTBC Drama “The Beauty Inside”
We can hardly wait to see the TV adaptation of The Beauty Inside before the year ends.
Studio&New, a subsidiary of Next Entertainment World, confirmed casting of Lee Min Ki and Seo Hyun Jin for Beauty Inside.
The upcoming drama will reunite the actress with PD Song Hyun Wook who directed 2016’s endearing romantic comedy, Another Oh Hae Young, which gave the actress her first Baeksang award in 2017.
The Beauty Inside is a work that has been gaining attention because the original film has received a lot of love.
The high concept movie, which was released in 2012, won the Grand Prize of the Cannes International Advertising Grand Prix and the Gold Prize in the Clio International Film Festival for its innovative concept and novel story.
The Beauty Inside film spins the story of a wood carver who turns into a different person everyday when he wakes up. He has managed to live through his strange misfortune until he falls in love with a woman.
In his earnest heart, he braves the love odds, and in time, wins the understanding heart of the woman who has learned to love the beauty she sees inside him.
The woman courageously loves the changing face of the wood carver, regardless if he’s a man or a woman, young or old, foreign or local.
For the drama version, the story will be tweaked reversing the gender. So it will be the woman who experiences the supernatural fate.
Also, the heroine will not change every time she wakes up, there is a trigger for the supernatural phenomenon at a specific time.
Seo Hyun Jin takes the role of a troublemaker top star who changes her face once a month.
Now the fun part of the romance is that Lee Min Ki will portray an airline company manager who has received all the blessings from heaven with good looks and excellent intellect, but he suffers a facial recognition disorder.
His medical condition lets him remember the slightest habit of a person providing an adorable narrative bend to his interaction with the face-changing heroine.
The romance plot twist definitely sounds perky and worth anticipating given the talent level of the love couple who will bring the story to life.
Seo Hyun Jin said, “The drama of a novel material has come to my heart. I am expecting to see a lot of new things through a whole new world of living a once-in-a-month life. We will do our best to show ourselves a good look with the actors and staff members who are with us.”
Lee Min Ki was attracted to the story of good material and the new character he is set to portray. “I am very excited to cooperate with PD Song and Seo Hyun Jin as a fan of Oh Hae Young”, he said.
The actor received immense love for his last role as an eccentric computer programmer, who finds romance with the woman he shares his house with, in tvN’s Because This Is My First Life.
On August 6, actors Ahn Jae Hyun (Cinderella & the Four Knights) and Lee Da Hee confirmed joining the main cast.
The Beauty Inside will be broadcast on October 1 via jTBC.
