PENTAGON’s Hongseok Confirmed To Star In Drama Alongside Golden Child’s Bomin And Shim Dal Gi

PENTAGON’s Hongseok will be transforming into an idol trainee for his next acting project!

On October 20, Cube Entertainment revealed that Hongseok will be starring in the upcoming KakaoTV original drama “Shadow Beauty” (literal title) as the handsome idol trainee Lee Jin Sung. Although he can’t get along well with his same-aged peers because he’s an idol trainee, Lee Jin Sung is the only figure who takes care of Goo Ae Jin (Shim Dal Gi), who gets hurt by those who make fun of her appearance. He becomes a ray of light for Goo Ae Jin in her chaotic school life and shows her an unexpected side of him that he doesn’t show anyone else.

“Shadow Beauty” is about the double life of Goo Ae Jin, a student who is teased for her looks at school but who is also a celebrity online named “Genie” with over 770,000 followers on social media. It is based on the webtoon of the same name by Ah Heum, which has 700,000 subscribers and an average rating of 9.1.

Previously, it was confirmed that new actress Shim Dal Gi would be starring as Goo Ae Jin while Golden Child’s Bomin would be playing Kim Ho In, the class president who looks like a plain model student on the outside but has a secret that he keeps to himself. He becomes interested in Goo Ae Jin despite himself and the two begin an uneasy alliance that could either turn into a destined match or twisted fate.

Hongseok previously starred in MBN’s “The Best Chicken,” Naver TV’s “On The Campus” and “Anniversary Anyway,” SBS’s “Phoenix 2020,” and the web drama “Blue Birthday.”

“Shadow Beauty” will be organized into 20-minute episodes, with 13 total episodes in the show. It will premiere sometime in the second half of 2021.
