“True Beauty” is a high school 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. Completing the love triangle is Han Seo Jun (Hwang In Yeop), an untamable rebel with a surprisingly warm heart.
Experience young love with the trio as you binge-watch “True Beauty”:
This boisterous historical fusion drama portrays what happens when a man from modern times gets his soul trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the Joseon queen with the soul of Blue House chef Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Her husband is King Cheoljong (Kim Jung Hyun), who appears to be a weak and ineffective king on the outside. However, Cheoljong is sharper than he appears and even harbors a few secrets.
