Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “True Beauty” is a romantic comedy about a girl named Lim Ju Gyeong (played by Moon Ga Young) who avidly uses makeup to hide her bare face and battle her insecurities about how she looks. ASTRO’S Cha Eun Woo will appear in the drama as Lee Su Ho, a popular student with his own emotional wounds, while Hwang In Yeob will play Han Seo Jun, an indomitable rebel with a surprisingly warm heart.
“True Beauty” marks Hwang In Yeob’s very first lead role, and the actor couldn’t hold back his excitement as he spoke about the drama.
“I first saw in an article a year ago that ‘True Beauty’ was going to be turned into drama and I thought, ‘How great would it be if I could act in this drama? “He recalled.” Luckily, I had the opportunity to audition and actually played the cool character of Han Seo Jun. I am extremely pleased and it feels like a dream. “
“I am behaving happily,” he continued. “Since many people look forward to the drama with love and interest, I work hard to do my best and show good things.”
Hwang In Yeob described his character as follows: “Seo Jun is very stylish and looks rough and rebellious on the outside, but he is actually a very warm and considerate guy. He is a character you just can’t hate and he shows new ones and a variety of stimuli, depending on who he interacts with. “
When asked if his real personality is similar to Han Seo Jun’s, the actor replied, “I think my degree of synchronization with Han Seo Jun is 50 percent. We are similar in that, like Seo Jun, I have a cold and sharp image that seems difficult to reach, but I am actually the exact opposite. I laugh a lot and joke a lot and I am the type who enjoy talking to other people. I also have a keen interest in real life fashion. “
As he prepared for the role, Hwang In Yeob shared, “He’s such a visually eye-catching character that I’ve been head-to-toe worried about what I can do to make myself a Seo Jun-Esque Work with the stylist team to try different things and see how I become more like Han Seo Jun and customize me too. “
He continued, “Aside from the visuals, I also talk to the director a lot and work hard to get Seo Jun’s emotions to be well represented through my actions.”
However, that’s not all Hwang In Yeob did to prepare for the drama. The actor continued, “Because I wanted to be cool about Seo Jun, I got a motorcycle license in real life and also took action classes. Hope you keep an eye on Seo Jun’s first entrance [in the drama]So you can see how all these efforts pay off at once. “
Hwang In Yeob also expressed full confidence in his chemistry with co-stars Moon Ga Young and Cha Eun Woo.
“As a rookie actor, Ga Young and Eun Woo are very considerate and took good care of me,” he said. “That’s why I was able to bond with both of them very quickly and I really enjoy playing with them.”
“Because we’re all very close, we tease each other almost every day,” the actor revealed. “I think that kind of chemistry in real life will show through in drama as well. I hope you will pay attention to the chemistry between the three of us. “
When asked about his goals as an actor, Hwang In Yeob said, “I want to be an actor that people look forward to all the time. I don’t think there is one sentence that could make me happier.”
Eventually he concluded, “Given how excited and waiting the audience is for ‘True Beauty’, I’ll do my best and work hard while it is filming. I hope you get ready for the first episode on December 9th , no matter what. Thank you very much! “
