Beauty Newbie Set for WEBTOON TV Adaptation


Wattpad WEBTOON Studios is working on the series Beauty Newbie, based on Maenggi Ki’s popular WEBTOON digital comic My ID is Gangnam Beauty!

My ID is Gangnam Beauty! has racked up over 1.4 billion views from fans around the world on WEBTOON, including a local fanbase in Thailand. The adaptation will follow Liu, a young woman who felt the need to get plastic surgery, and Guy, who is seen as having a “perfect” face. In a world that judges and criticizes based on appearance, can romance blossom between two people who see themselves so differently?

The series will begin production this summer and premiere in early 2024 on GMMTV.

Beauty Newbie stars Baifern-Pimchanok (The Desire, The Leaves, The Curse of Saree) as Liu and Win-Metawin as Guy (2gether The Series, F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers, Devil Sister) and features Fah-Yongwaree (Nabi, My Stepdarling, The Warp Effect) and Great-Sapol (Catch Me Baby). AtichaTanthanawigrai (F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers, The Shipper, Girl from Nowhere) will direct all 14 episodes of the series.
