JTBC is set to remake another webtoon! Im Soo-hyang has been offered the lead role in new JTBC drama My ID Is Gangnam Beauty (literal title), and is reportedly considering the casting offer.
The drama is based on the webcomic “Nae IDneun Gangnammiin” by Gi Maeng-Gi.
Im Soo-hyan is offered the role of the heroine Kang Mi-rae, an unattractive girl who was bullied in school. Before entering college, she underwent plastic surgery and became beautiful, but people are still mean to her and call her “Gangnam Beauty” (which has a derogatory meaning in Korea). She will then meet Do Kyung-seok, her schoolmate who does not judge people by their appearance.
My ID is Gangnam Beauty is set to air sometime this year on JTBC.
