Hwang In Yeob And Moon Ga Young Share Heart-Fluttering Moment In “True Beauty”

 

Moon Ga Young and Hwang In Yeob will be getting extremely close in the upcoming episode of “True Beauty”!

 

Based on a hit webtoon, “True Beauty” is a romantic comedy about Lim Ju Gyeong (Moon Ga Young), who zealously uses makeup to hide her bare face and combat her insecurities about her looks. After she meets Lee Su Ho (ASTRO‘s Cha Eun Woo), a popular student who has his own emotional wounds, they share each other’s secrets and learn to heal through love. Hwang In Yeob plays Han Seo Jun, an untamable rebel with a surprisingly warm heart.

In the last episode, Han Seo Jun made hearts flutter with the way he sweetly cared for Lim Ju Gyeong. He took care of her when she was sick and even wiped her tears away when she admitted she liked Lee Su Ho. Han Seo Jun has no idea Lee Su Ho confessed to her, raising questions about where his unrequited love is headed.

 

The newly released stills depict a thrilling moment between Han Seo Jun and Lim Ju Gyeong. In one photo, he grabs her by the wrist and stares at her with an intense gaze. Lim Ju Gyeong looks at him in surprise, and it’s almost as if they are lost in their own world.

 

Then in the next picture, Han Seo Jun encloses the distance between them, and he leans towards her with his gaze fixed on her lips. Lim Ju Gyeong seems frozen by his sudden forwardness, but her hands are on his shoulders, increasing anticipation for what is to come next.

Hey @Gamechanger11 I'm 65 and I watch school dramas all the time. There's no age limit 

Wow, Hwan In Yeob is shining so brightly in this drama. He reminds me with Kim Woo Bin's character in The Heirs aka Choi Young Do. The Second Lead Syndrome is strong with this one.

Someone mentioned how unrealistic this show was having all these guys fighting over her or showing interest. I think that that is the whole point. When you have a story and this is a story not a docudrama about a girl who others consider ugly being the object of interest of these great looking guys it is a fantasy and a dream. Often when I was young I used to fantasise after reading some romance novel about being the subject of interest of some good looking guy I knew in real life. I was dreaming and when we watch these shows there is a part of us that want this girl to be the object of admiration but in the end we want the guy who really knows her warts and all to be the one.

 

However don't forget Su Ho knows exactly how she looks underneath the makeup. He is attracted to her character, the baseball guy was only interested in her looks. Seo Jin is also interested in her character too.

I agree...i haven’t read the webtoon so I’m watching it as a first timer. While I like Seo Jin, I’m team Su Ho all the way because he’s been there for her since the beginning. He knows her secret and her interest in comics. So far in the story, we haven’t been introduced to anything to make it why Seo Jin should be with her other than the fact that he started to like her because Su Ho liked her. Plus she has no interest in Seo Jin anyway. In fact, it starting to be kind of annoying when he gets upset at her...like why? She doesn’t like you that way, why are you upset at her?

ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo And Hwang In Yeob Attempt To Win The Favor Of Moon Ga Young’s Family In “True Beauty”

 

ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo and Hwang In Yeob will have a hilarious competition in the next episode of “True Beauty”!

 

Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “True Beauty” is a romantic comedy starring Moon Ga Young as Lim Ju Gyeong, a girl who tries to combat her insecurities about her looks through her makeup skills, which turn her into a “goddess” at school. ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo stars as Lee Su Ho, a popular student who secretly harbors his own emotional wounds, while Hwang In Yeob plays Han Seo Jun, an untamable rebel with a surprisingly warm heart.

 

In the new stills, Lee Su Ho and Han Seo Jun sit side by side as they make dumplings. They’re both wearing aprons, and they put their heart and soul into creating the best dumplings yet. The traces of flour on their face indicate how hard they’re working just to impress Lim Ju Gyeong and her family.

 

What’s even more hilarious are Lim Ju Gyeong and her family’s reactions. Lim Ju Gyeong stares at something in shock with a hand over her mouth while her father Lim Jae Pil (Park Ho San) looks horrified as he clutches onto his hair. Her mother Hong Hyun Sook (Jang Hye Jin) is cheering the boys on as she creates a heart with her hands whereas her young brother Lim Ju Young (Kim Min Ki) watches them like a hawk.

Why are both Lee Su Ho and Han Seo Jun at Lim Ju Gyeong’s house, and who will win the favor of her family? Those questions will be answered in the next episode of “True Beauty” that airs on January 14 at 10:30 p.m. KST.

OMG...ep 9 totally cracked me up! 
:hahah!:


FL’s dad provides good comic relief. 
 

love the leads in this show, and as some have mentioned, 2ML is a spitting image of Lee Joon Ki! Also, I can’t believe that he’s 30. I’ll have some of what he’s eating.

I share your views but Seo Jun could be acting that way cos he’s frustrated - at the one-sidedness of his affections, at how she doesn’t know and tells him what she feels for another, at the fact that the other person is Soo Ho with whom he has a love-hate r/s? He’s in a bit of a bind and it’s quite relatable.

 

I don’t see why he is holding back on the chase though...perhaps cos he knows he’s lost before he’s begun. I can’t recall if he’s seen her bare face...like Soo Ho has at her worst. Think 2ML showed his internal struggles pretty well.

Oh dear is Soo Jin going the route of the webtoon and turn against Ju Gyung!? Like, poor girl has enough on her plate already. Nice to see Seo Joon acting on his feelings, the helping her getting the part time gig and immediately running over the moment he heard she got hurt? Aww~ he's the sweetest and it's too bad he'd be on the losing end as most second male leads do.... :cries:

I was laughing hard when Ju Gyung just fanned herself openly in front of Seo Joon LoL!:joy: And she even dabbed under her arms:scream::lol: she's just so carefree I tell ya! Find it odd her dad fail to recognize her voice when she was at Su Ho's?

The photoshoot scene stole this episode...

JK looks a little scared because Suho is in love with her.

She is happy, but it seems that everything happened too fast.

I like that she has her goal and that she was looking for a part-time job.

I hope not but you know how these teen dramas are. There aren’t very many episodes left, we still  have a lot of unresolved issues:

 

1. SJ issue with her father 

2. Seo Joon and Su Ho’s friendship, will they become friends again.

3. Mystery surrounding their friend’s suicide.

 

4. Older sister and teacher relationship

5. Younger brother and his love interest 

6. Will dad get his money back?

7. Will JK go to beauty school?

8. And of course developement in SH and JK relationship. 
 

I honestly hope they don’t focus too long on the whole love triangle. We already know they like each other, let’s work in developing their characters and also find out the rest about other characters. I hate it when they rush the story at the end because they run out of time.

I really dislike characters that have one-sided crushes that do nothing but all a sudden when someone show interest, they immediately have motivation to fight, like why now LoL geez. Yea Su Jin I meant you tsk. 

 

  Ahahah that dumpling wars between Su Ho and Seo Joon! And Ju Gyung's mom made them both say I love you while clipping each other's toe nails LMFAo!! Ju Gyung sure has an overactive imagination I'm surprised she isn't a webtoon artist instead. 

 

   The many chingus  Ju Gyung mentioned during the bus ride with Seo Joon in ep. 10 I lost count:joy: I just love how Seo Joon keep telling her to just break up :Megalol:

There's quite a few scenes that remind me from the webtoon. That preview for ep. 11 oy. 

I have an issue with Su Ho's over possessiveness,  unfortunately most women take it as an indication of love? I'm like are you serious.:tounge_xd:

Agree with you! I hope they will lessen the love triangle and put more focus on the rest of the issue. I'm glad that suho and jk are dating since the end of ep.8. And seems that they are going back together in ep.11 + reconciliation between suho and sj. So later on we're gonna have the story of jk and the bullies... i think the story is getting better now.

I don't get the "Suho's over possessiveness." Like... I mean he is a nice boyfriend for jungkyung. But, he knows that Seojun likes Jungkyung as well, which means... it's normal for suho to get jealous is she gets closed to sj

Hi everyone. I think this is the first time I am posting here but I have been following this drama since EP 1. I did read the webtoon years back but I can barely remember the plot but I do recognize that they change a lot especially the relationships between characters and as far as I remember, the webtoon is in university/college setting. After watching the most recent episodes, for some reason I am concern that the characters are supposed to be 16-17 year old kids. They are literal minors. Living alone with no guardian, visiting each other house unsupervised, manage to get part-time job without parents' consent, adult hyping up when kids were posing in such intimate ways. I am not sure how law works in South Korea, but even though this is adaptation from webtoon and it can be as unrealistic as it possibly can, I couldn't help being lowkey concern about it as a consumer.

 

On lighter note,

  1. I hate the development between Joo Kyung and Soo Jin. I thought Soo Jin would be a great support system for Joo Kyung but now it seems like she's all into separating Joo Kyung and Soo Ho.
  2. I am frustrated with Joo Kyung. While I do get the struggle with her insecurity and inferiority at school, I really can't accept when she keeps trying to keep her relationship with Soo Ho as secret. Especially after Soo Jin told her that she likes Soo Ho. She is uncomfortable about Soo Jin and Soo Ho relationship but can't she understand that it is the same when Soo Ho expressing his dislike when she is with Seo Jun. Plus, she knows that Soo Jin answered Soo Ho's phone but don't she remember that Soo Ho saves her number as Girlfriend, the one she specifically request Soo Ho to do so. The secret is out open now that I hope Joo Kyung-Soo Ho-Soo Jin will solve this triangle quickly because I rather focus on other story than them. 
  3. I love that Soo Ho outright telling Soo Jin that he got girlfriend, clearly drawing that line between them. 
  4. Little shoutout to Hee Kyung unnie, I love her character the most now. While she can be too straight forward at times, I adore watching a character that doesn't beat around the bush. In this mess where everyone having secret crush on everyone else, having her being honest with her intention is really fascinating. And now it seems like she is going into protective mode, I am looking forward for more of her scenes.

A little gift before I end this post, for people who don't know about this, enjoy the ageless Cha Eun Woo and Park Yoo Na.

Maybe he’s like that because of all the miscommunications between them. She’s not possessive over him yet she’s having all these over dramatic scenarios and then she ignores him yet confides in SJ. I swear, both of them are so slow at catching on to things. Honestly they just need to stop and talk instead of her running away. She has low self confidence so she kept pushing him away and hiding their relationship while he’s straight up about it.

I agree with you here. SH is the one acting normal and clearly setting up boundaries with Soo Jin and Seo Jun. It’s JK’s insecurities that is causing a lot of communications, not just with him but with Soo Jin and Seo Jun. She isn’t willing to come right out to tell Soo Jin she’s in a relationship with Soo Ho. Not sure where this is heading as Soo Ho doesn’t have any interest in Soo Jin so it’s just prolonging the miscommunications between them. And JK still doesn’t get it that Seo Jun is into her that everything she does with him gives him some hope. I hope they wrap up this love triangle soon cause I want to see Seo Jun and Soo Ho patch their relationship up.

Is the series following the webtoon?

I found the webtoon online and started reading.  Honestly, I jumped in the middle and now am confused.  It’s Doesn’t seem parallel with the series.

 

please correct me if am wrong.:wacko:

@airasara

No, it's not. There's suppose to be trust in relationships. And Su Ho clearly doesn't. I get he's afraid of losing her due to loss of his mom, Se Yeon but it's not healthy for him or Ju Gyung. He's hurting her, she's crying (again) and they just need to talk it out more obviously. Her insecurities aren't helping either. 

 

The unrealisticness of this drama I tell ya, y'all mean to tell me someone who looks like Su Ho has been a "motae solo" up until now LoL. He just seem so clueless on relationships, girls etc. Like I just can't LoL. And Su Ho's suppose to be a brainiac! As for Ju Gyung, I get she's been an outcast for most of her life and that's a blow to her self esteem but geez can she be any slower on catching onto things? 

 

Oh I had to add that ridiculous over the top ending scene of ep. 10 where Su Ho floated up in mid air when he was hit by that car was freaking hilarious.:joy::tounge_wink: It was suppose to be a tense, tragic scene but just came off cringey and unintentionally funny?
