The Japanese branch of CJ ENM recently announced that the South Korean drama "True Beauty" would be making its debut on Japanese airwaves. While a final broadcast date has not yet been set, "True Beauty" is expected to begin airing sometime in April on the Japanese version of Mnet. "True Beauty" will also be available on the OTT service Mnet smart.
AdvertisementThe news follows the similar export of the "True Beauty" webtoon on the LINE webtoon service in Japan. The move is likely an effort to take advantage of the intellectual property of "True Beauty" which also has a confirmed mobile game in production. "True Beauty" stars Moon Ga-young as a homely high school student who becomes obsessed with proper makeup application technique. The drama also stars Cha Eun-woo and Hwang In-yeop as her love interests.
