Watch: Shim Dal Gi Leads A Double Life As An Outcast And Influencer In Teaser For New Drama
Kakao TV’s upcoming drama “Shadow Beauty” (literal translation) has unveiled a new teaser!
Based on a popular webtoon, “Shadow Beauty” will tell the story of high school student Goo Ae Jin, who is a bullied loner at school (played by Shim Dal Gi). However, she leads a double life online as a social media star and influencer named “Genie” who is renowned for her flawless looks (played by fromis_9’s Lee Nagyung). Golden Child‘s Bomin will star in the drama as class president Kim Ho In, while PENTAGON‘s Hongseok will star as idol trainee Lee Jin Sung.
The newly released teaser begins with Goo Ae Jin being bullied by her classmates. They push her and throw things at her as they mock her, but she keeps a poker face. She narrates, “I have a big secret.” The video then shows Goo Ae Jin putting makeup on her face as she is surrounded by comments praising Genie’s beauty. She continues to say, “No one can know about it.”
Then bit by bit, as the clips rapidly flash different bullying moments, the eerie smile on her face grows bigger and bigger. The teaser shares a glimpse of Goo Ae Jin’s transformation into Genie, and the captions describe her as an outsider at school but a social media star with 770,000 followers online.
“Shadow Beauty” will premiere on November 20 at 8 p.m. KST. Watch the teaser below!
