Beyond The Romance Drama Podcast
Beyond The Romance of 'True Beauty'
In this first episode of Beyond The Romance for 2022, I was joined by my friend Stitch, to discuss the pretty and not so pretty traits of the Korean youth drama True Beauty. Released in 2020, the drama became quite popular with fans of the genre and cast which featured actor and K-pop artist Cha Eun-woo, Mun Ka-young, and Hwang In-yeop.
Though both Stitch and I enjoyed the True Beauty mainly for the acting and the subversion of some tropes, we did have issues with how subjects like bullying, self-esteem and parenting weren't handled as well as they could've been considering they were the main subjects of the drama itself.
Listen to here as we shared our pros and cons, and if you'd like to watch the video version, you can find this episode of Beyond The Romance and others, on my YouTube channel. True Beauty is available for streaming on Viki.com.
