True Beauty is a romantic comedy K-Drama that recently started premiering on tvN for Korean fans and Viu or Rakuten Viki for international fans. Based originally on a webtoon of the same name or alternately, Goddess Advent, this drama will explore the life of a young high school student Im Joo Kyung (played by Moon Ga Young) who suffers from issues of self-worth and confidence stemming from her appearance. However, she learns about makeup on online forums and gives it a try. Make-up works wonders for her self image and she can now confidently start her life anew in a new school with new people. She meets two men, Su Ho (Cha Eunwoo) and Seo Jun (Hwang In Yeop) who complicate her feelings but also help her come out of her shell and embrace her true beauty.

Seojun, played by Hwang In Yeop is increasingly gaining attention and love from viewers who are claiming that this is the second deadliest second lead syndrome that they have felt since Start Up’s Han Ji Pyeong played by Kim Seon Ho. Kim Seon Ho stole hearts left and right in his portrayal of Han Ji Pyeong and Hwang In Yeop is on the same path. Viewers simply love his character and his acting skills and safe to say, he makes their hearts flutter.

Here are 5 reasons why you should be on #TeamSeojun in True Beauty:

  1. Seojun is an absolute sweetheart to his mother and sister which automatically implies that he’s a good man with a tough exterior and a heart of gold.

  2. He’s not afraid to show gratitude and humility when he’s in situations where he has acted rashly or inappropriately in the past but would like to make up for it.

  3. He is playful and knows how to have fun. Unlike Suho, who is a serious type of person, Seojun is a complete mood-maker and lights up any room he walks in to. His sense of humour is seriously adorable.

  4. He is fiercely protective. Seojun’s behaviour towards Suho stems simply from the fact that he was immensely protective of their friend. Similarly, when it comes to his sister getting bullied, he doesn’t hesitate to do what it takes to protect her. At the karaoke too, when Joo Kyeong is “kidnapped”, he’s ready to take on whoever it takes to save her.

  5. Seojun has it pretty rough in life but he’s still a soft-hearted boy who works hard for his family.

  6. Seojun is not taken by Joo Kyeong’s beauty. He definitely does not try to win her over simply because she is beautiful. Rather, it’s the small things about her and her personality that draw him towards her. While Suho has seen her without makeup and still likes her, for Seojun, how she looks was never a concern to begin with.

I think suho is better than seojun since seojun approach her for revenge but suho genuinely liked her from start I don't get sls for him as he is not that great I got sls for jipyeong and suho is similar to jipyeong both have no one except fl so I don't want her for seojun if it happens it will be another school2015 or start up for me where male lead protects her all the time and fl fall for other lead it's so annoying so I hope suho jukyung end game

It's not always supposed to be a love at first sight or something. Like suho he also did a lot of stuffs for her. You just ignored all that. At first, seojun blamed him for their friends death but now they are friends again. So there's no jealousy or anything I want all of them to be happy <3

Team seojun all the way!!!!

I think Seojun is okay. He is handsome and fun to be with. But in this drama, Suho already knew how Ju Kyeong real face and they even met since they were kids and left good memories in his life. While Seojun know her as "made-up Ju Kyeong".. Most of the scene he feels even more fall in love with her are showing her beautifulness.. But the way he playing around with Ju Kyeong is super cute

All I see from SeoJun right now is that he goes out of his way to make his friend jealous, that’s just plain douche.

I think everyone agrees with the fact that seojun and joo-kyung have amazing chemistry ❤️

Even though Seojun may or may not be the endgame, I still love his character! Hwang In Yeop portrays Seojun very well! He made Seojun a living webtoon character! I love him for that!

He is so beautiful and handsome. I like his acting. I pray that he ends up with Lim Joo-kyung. Lim Joo-kyung is comfortable around him and acts funny love their chemistry.

He is so good looking and he is so playful as well but sadly there will be nothing between them but still Hwang In Yeop (Han Seojeon) is one to fall for

I like him, see him in 18 again and The Tale of Nokdu. I hope he ends up with Lim Joo-kyung.

I prefer Seojun because she’s herself when she’s around him

Anonymous 4 months ago

he is okay but i prefer the lead actor anyway..he is more good looking. and real smart and talented in real life. just watch him in jipsabu/all the butlers starting ep 116 and you will see another side of him...

Just want to ask how does the actor's attributes in real life support you being on the fictional character's team? Sorry, not trying to be mean, just curious where the logic to that is since we're talking about drama-wise discussion. :D

Hey everyone. dont be on team Seojun if you dont want your hearts to be broken into a million pieces. Like most i would love to see seojun with Joo Kyeong but in the true beauty webtoon they break up. so most likely the same thing happen in the drama :((

In the preview suho breaking up w her is her imagination, so it's not yet actually different from the story line in the webtoon. I'm 100% team seojun though.

Anonymous 4 months ago

Yeah, and also, in the webtoon when they break up, Ju Kyung says: And just like that, my first relationship ended, while @ the end of ep 8, the trailer of ep 9 showed Soo Hoo breaking up w/ her, so the webtoon has a different storyline than the drama.

The storyline could change as they don't want spoilers so why would they have the same ending.
