Creator Opens Up About True Beauty Season 2 Production Status
While the rumors regarding True Beauty Season 2 renewal are all over the internet, many sources claim that the show is currently in production. Some reports suggest that the production for the second season began in 2021, soon after the first season wrapped up airing. However, other reports suggest the filming will begin this year, claiming the cast will return to reprise their roles. But nothing is known to date, as the series creator and network have yet to confirm the production details.
What To Expect In True Beauty Season 2?
The story is centered on a high school girl, Lim Ju Kyung. She was perceived as ugly and so was bullied at her school badly. Well, she had no friends, too, and was constantly mocked for her looks. But because of the financial crisis, her family moves back to the countryside. Lim Ju Kyung and his brother, Lim Ju Young, are then admitted to another school. However, this time, Ju Kyung was passionate about using makeup to transform her face. Interestingly, Lee Su Ho, the most handsome boy in the school, falls in love with her.
As the story proceeds further, Han Seo Jun enters the plot. He used to be best friends with the main lead, but a tragic accident pushed them apart. However, he eventually fell in love with Ju Kyung and hence, ended up being the second lead. In the final episode, Ju Kyung’s elder sister tied the wedding knot with Han Joon-woo. On the other hand, Lee Su Ho finally returned to Korea and met Lim Ju Kyung. Both cleared their misunderstandings, and Seo Jun cried over his unrequited love. He sang one of Se-yeon’s songs at his debut performance. Lastly, Kang Soo Jin was also back in Korea, and she apologized to Ju Kyung for making the situation worse for her.
If True Beauty Season 2 returns, the makers might explore aspects of Lee Su Ho and Han Seo Jun’s friendship. Fans might also have a sneak peek into Lim Ju Kyung’s career. Also, the second installment might provide an answer to a few questions. Will Seo Jun continue singing all his life? What will happen in Su Ho’s relationship with his father? In addition to it, the second chapter will indeed focus on the romantic relationship between the lead couple. Since the Webtoon is already concluded so, there is ample source to look for.
Who Will Return In The Second Season?
The lead actors, Moon ga Young, Cha Eun Woo, and Hwang In-Youp, have a higher chance of returning to the screen together. If it happens, they will be reprising their roles of Lim Ju Kyung, Lee Su Ho, and Han Seo Jun, respectively. Apart from these primary cast members, Park Yoo Na can be back in the shoes of Kang Soo Jin. Regarding the supporting cast, Kim Min Gi and Im Se Mi may return as Lim’s siblings. Additionally, Jun Joon Ho can mark his entry into the second installment as Lee Joo Heon, Su Ho’s father.
Moreover, Moon Ga Young last appeared in JTBC’s The Interest Of Love. Currently, she does not have any prominent projects in her kitty. Meanwhile, Cha Eun Woo is preparing for his next release, A Good Day To Be A Dog, scheduled for 2023 release. Hence, the makers might approach him after finishing his prior commitments. Lastly, Hwang in Youp was seen acting in ‘Why Her.’ It was released back in 2022, and thus, the actor can reunite with True Beauty’s makers immediately. However, some new faces might join the show as well. But, if the creators come up with a replacement concerning the main cast, True Beauty Season 2 will lack the previous charm.
