I remember reading the True Beauty webtoon, but I stopped midway. It wasn’t due to the story or any particular thing I disliked; I just got busy. When I heard about the live-action, I had my eyes out to see the chosen cast and how the story would play out as a drama production. Unfortunately, after seeing many clips on the internet, I don’t think I’ll watch the live-action or resume reading the webtoon. Here are my two main reasons –
- I no longer enjoy watching dramas with overdramatized love triangles. Stories that revolve around the intensity of a love triangle stress me out, + they’re predictable. I know who the female lead ends up with, so why all the back and forth???
- Dramas in high school settings don’t excite me anymore. The storyline has to be very witty or thrilling for me to sit down and watch. Regrettably, even though I love the main actors, True Beauty doesn’t fall into that spectacular category for me.
With all that out of the way, let’s move on to this post’s primary purpose. During the airing period of True Beauty, Moon Ga Young sat for some magazine interviews & photoshoots. Marie Claire and ELLE Korea happen to have my favourite photos, so let’s enjoy the visual feast.
(Please Note: none of these images are mine. I got them from official magazine websites and social media sites.)
First off are the photos from Marie Claire. I adore the outfits for this shoot. They are serving office vibes, but with a bougie flare + the bags they paired with each piece is such a statement –
Following up is the ELLE Korea photoshoot. I love how they styled her hair, and this one has a more colourful palette in comparison to the Marie Claire pictorial –
