For fans of the webtoon, rejoice! We finally have our full cast line up. With Moon Ga Young and Cha Eunwoo previously announced as the leads, along with a rounded out cast of Park Yu Na and Im Se Mi, all fans were waiting for was the announcement for the casting for the role of Han Seo Joon.
For those unfamiliar with the webtoon, Han Seo Joon was famously based off Kwon Hyunbin (VIINI) from Produce 101 fame, as the creator of True Beauty, Yaoong, admitted herself. Fans have thus been jonesing for him to join the cast. It seems that the producers went with a different actor though.
The drama has casted rookie actor Hwang In Yeob to play the bad-boy-turned-boyfriend. Born in 1991, Hwang In Yeob turns 29 this year, making fans doubt if he would be able to pull off the role of a fresh high school student.
It seems that many fans of the drama were really hoping for Kwon Hyunbin to play the role, although they seem open to Hwang In Yeob as well, if he proves his mettle in acting. Some have even insinuated he got in as he was connected to the female lead, with both of them from KeyEast Entertainment.
While we wait for the drama to begin filming in August to September this year, you can check out Hwang In Yeob’s previous works, Tales of Nokdu or his appearance in Playlist Global‘s webdrama, W.H.Y, linked below.
