Last year, a Korean TV drama attained one of the highest-ever viewer ratings in South Korean cable television history.
The K-drama, titled My ID is Gangnam Beauty or simply Gangnam Beauty, is an adaptation of the webtoon of the same title published in 2016. The series received praise for its depiction of discrimination based on physical appearance. It also touched on superficial beauty standards, which are issues that has vastly affected South Korean society.
Gangnam Beauty stars Im Soo-hyang who rose to fame by playing lead roles in New Tales of Gisaeng and Inspiring Generation, and actor Cha Eun-woo who is also a model and a K-pop artist, being a member of the idol group Astro.
Now, Gangnam Beauty will premiere very soon on Primetime Bida! A full trailer was launched on July 18, and quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
