Hello everyone (✿^‿^)
Today we are going to catch on to some stunning real-life true beauty characters.
True beauty was the webtoon that introduced me to the webtoon world. I watched a video about this webtoon on Youtube and the story intrigued me so I ended up downloading the webtoon app to read more. Though, Lookism is the one that really got me into webtoons.
True beauty is about an average-looking girl who gets bullied for her looks. So she uses makeup to change her look completely. After her makeover people start calling her goddess. But her drastic change is too much that no one recognizes her without makeup. That’s how different she looks without makeup.
This webtoon puts light on the obsession of people with looks. Where good looking people are treated nicely and ugly people are bullied. In the world, lookism happens at a low high level but when it comes to South Korea it’s really at an extreme level. In South Korea even while getting a job looks matters a lot more than your education and other qualifications.
This webtoon is hyped so much that it even got its own Kdrama. Though, its reviews are kinda bad. So I will recommend you to read the webtoon.
In this post, I am not adding the Kdrama cast as a real life true beauty characters. But instead, I am adding people who really are real life true beauty characters in my opinion as Kdrama got lots of hate for their casting especially for the cast of Suho Lee.
How ironic is it that we miss the main point of the story and still judge people based on their looks. ┌( ಠ_ಠ)┘
So are you ready to go crazy for these real life true beauty characters? Let’s go.

Real Life True Beauty Characters
1. Author Yaongyi as a Jugyeong Lim
Yes. She is the author of this webtoon. And she uses herself as a model to sketch the main character of the story Jugyeong. So of course I had to add her to this list of real life true beauty characters.
You can definitely see their resemblance in the above picture. The Internet went crazy when her face was revealed. Yaongyi also works as a model. Her real name is Kim Na-young. She always loved drawing from a young age. She has a huge interest in makeup and fashion trends which eventually reflects in her webtoon. I totally loved all outfits used in the webtoon and I even take screen shots whenever I like any outfit.
For those who don’t know, Jugyeong Lim is the main character of the story. After getting bullied for her looks she starts using makeup and transforms herself into a beautiful girl. It sure increases her confidence. But still, she is insecure about her bare face so much that she doesn’t show it to anyone. So only her family knows about her secret.
2. Lee Taeyong (NCT) as a Suho Lee
Next one in our real life true beauty characters list is Suho Lee. I think Lee Taehong’s look match with Suho Lee best. Look at that jawline. He is a South Korean rapper, song writer, singer, and dancer. He is the leader of the boy group named NCT. As a leader, he carries lots of responsibility on his shoulders. But he is always kind and caring of his teammates. He is also a member of SuperM which was created by SM entertainment.
Suho Lee is a major character of true beauty. He is also part of a love triangle involving Jugyeong. He is the first person outside of her family who knows her bare face. Suho Lee is a kind and rich guy. Even after knowing Jugyeong’s secret, he never makes fun of her. But he instead always tries to understand her and supports her. He is the first person who accepts her as she is and always calls her bare face pretty. He is Jugyeong’s first love interest. Though at first he is shown as a grumpy and cold hearted person. But after some time he softens up as he comes out of trauma caused by some past incidents.

Also, I selected him because I felt the same vibes from him as Seojun Han. Lots of people were hoping to see him as a Seojun Han’s cast in Kdrama. But their dreams couldn’t come true. But ou can’t deny that he is one of the real life true beauty characters.
Seojun Han is another major character in the story. He is the second guy in this love triangle. At his first appearance in the story, it was shown that Suho Lee and Seojun Han know each other. But due to some circumstances, they both hate each other. When their stories were unfolding, Seojun Han falls in love with Jugyeong.
