Describing the atmosphere on the set of “True Beauty,” where many of her co-stars are roughly around the same age, Moon Ga Young remarked, “The set is overflowing with energy. It really feels like going to school.”
The actress went on to share, “Because I graduated from an all-girls middle school and an all-girls high school, sitting in a classroom with guys feels new and unfamiliar for me.”

Moon Ga Young also revealed that she didn’t immediately understand her character in the drama—and that she has put in a lot of time and hard work in order to portray her in a meaningful way.
