Get A Deeper Look At “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty” With New Teasers!
We’re pretty excited for My ID Is Gangnam Beauty – JTBC’s upcoming drama which will surely turn a lot of heads this July!
As its premiere date comes nearer, jTBC has been blessing fans with more enthralling teasers for My ID Is Gangnam Beauty!
The upcoming romance drama that will surely captivate our hearts is based on the popular webtoon of the same name. It gives a no-holds barred take on society’s obsession on beauty through the story of Kang Mi Rae.
Mi Rae, who is played by Lim Soo Hyang, is a victim of society’s aforementioned unfair standards at such a young age. After being bullied for her appearance since childhood, she crumbles and gives in to the pressure by undergoing a cosmetic surgery.
However, her hopes of being able to live a new life as she starts her freshman year in college gets crushed as people start referring to her as “Gangnam Beauty”.
“Gangnam Beauty” is a derogatory term used for referring to women who went through surgery to achieve their good looks.
Soo Hyang takes on the center of the drama’s second official poster, which JTBC released on July 10. Her bright smile shows us how Mi Rae’s personality will be like in My ID Is Gangnam Beauty despite her struggles. Her leading man Do Kyung Suk, who is played by ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo, stands behind her with a gaze that could make just about anyone melt. Jo Woo Ri also makes her appearance as Hyun Soo Ah, who, judging by the way she looks at Cha Eun Woo, will stand in the way of the two leads.
My ID Is Gangnam Beauty‘s first poster was shared to the public on July 3, which includes the three actors plus Kwak Dong Yeon. Dong Yeon plays the role of Yeon Woo Young, a chemistry assistant who will spice up the story even more.
My ID Is Gangnam Beauty will air every Fridays and Saturdays at 11 PM KST on JTBC.
Ultimate dreamboat and ASTRO’s “face genius” Cha Eun Woo exudes charm in every single teaser so far – may it be on the official posters or the short video clips. He totally owned the first video teaser for the drama, which was released last June 28.
Eun Woo proves that he deserves his spot in the roster of idols-turned-actors. After watching the first teaser, it’s safe to say that Eun Woo owns the “tsundere” personality as he takes on Kyung Suk’s cold-on-the-outside-warm-on-the-inside feel.
My ID Is Gangnam Beauty‘s second teaser video, which was posted on July 6, shows more of the hardships Mi Rae faces from the people around her.
It also gives us a glimpse of what kind of characters Woo Ri’s Soo Ah and Dong Yeon’s Woo Young will be like, and what roles they would play in the making of Mi Rae and Kyung Suk’s budding relationship.
