AHHHHH. AHHHHHHHHH! I had to pause my ‘Running Man’ episode just to write about this because THIS upcoming drama is definitely on my watch list.
‘The Beauty inside’ starring Lee Min-ki (Because This is My First Life) and Seo Hyun-jin (Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim) released its very first teaser. The minute-long teaser shows our two leads standing across from each other in a busy and crowded population. Seo Hyun-jin changes into a variety of characters before reuniting with Lee Min-ki again as her real self. The drama is a remake of the 2015 film also named ‘The Beauty Inside’ that starred Han Hyo-joo. Seo Hyun-jin’s character Han Se-kye changes into a different appearance at least once every month which explains for the different faces we saw in the teaser.
The teaser is so simple, but I’m already loving what we got. I think it does a great job in showing us what the drama is basically going to be about, but also what the relationship between our two characters is going to be like. Watching Lee Min-ki in the teaser made me realize just how much I missed him in dramaland since his last project was ‘Because This Life is My First’ which aired last year in 2017. It’s great to see him back as the lead again in another drama. While I haven’t been an avid watcher of Seo Hyun-jin’s dramas, I do think she’s talented and has the great acting skills needed to portray any character. I’m definitely looking forward to their chemistry and acting in this drama as well as the premise of the drama itself since the film it was derived after was so interesting.
‘The Beauty Inside’ is scheduled to air on JTBC on October 1, 2018. I forgot to include it in my post about my future recapping projects, but this is another drama you can definitely expect me to watch and post about (and possibly recap).
