“True Beauty” PD Shares Reasons For Casting Cha Eun Woo, Moon Ga Young, And Hwang In Yeob

In a recent interview, producing director (PD) Kim Sang Hyub of “True Beauty” talked about working with ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo, Moon Ga Young, and Hwang In Yeob for the upcoming tvN drama.

Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “True Beauty” is a romantic comedy about a girl named Lim Ju Gyeong (Moon Ga Young) who zealously uses makeup to hide her bare face and combat her insecurities about her looks. Cha Eun Woo will star in the drama as Lee Su Ho, a popular student who has his own emotional wounds, while Hwang In Yeob will play Han Seo Jun, an untamable rebel with a surprisingly warm heart.

On why he decided to take on the drama, PD Kim Sang Hyub said, “I didn’t specifically think of doing a drama about school life. After I worked on my first school drama ‘Extraordinary You,’ I thought to myself, ‘If I get to direct another one next time, I think I can do a better job.’ While I was thinking that, I received an offer to create a drama version of ‘True Beauty.’”

He continued, “The main point of ‘True Beauty’ is Lim Ju Gyeong’s funny but sad growing pains. Rather than telling the story realistically, I thought that if I twisted it to be a comedy instead, the strange absurdities would be fun to watch. I hope ‘True Beauty’ will become a drama that viewers can watch comfortably.”

Kim Sang Hyub went on to describe his thinking behind casting Moon Ga Young, Cha Eun Woo, and Hwang In Yeob. “I think the original webtoon was a hit because of the drawing style and the characters,” he said. “I considered that to be important, and I worked on casting people who were really similar to the characters.”

He spoke about having faith in the three actors, first describing Moon Ga Young as someone with lots of dynamic energy. “I thought that it would be nice if Lim Ju Gyeong went around recklessly, and Moon Ga Young was especially talented in portraying that,” Kim Sang Hyub said.

He continued, “Starting her career as a child actress, Moon Ga Young has relatively more acting experience than others, and I liked how she was able to interpret her character.” Kim Sang Hyub went on to describe how the actress was not afraid to let herself go during certain scenes and to try out special effects makeup.

On Cha Eun Woo, the “True Beauty” PD said, “I think both the writer of the original webtoon and the webtoon’s fans would all think of Cha Eun Woo as the best person to play Su Ho. Before working on the drama, I had thought that Cha Eun Woo was someone who only had soft and refreshing sides to him, but as we worked together, I noticed he can be very manly, and when he looks at his co-star, he has a way of appearing innocent but sad at the same time.”

How to Prepare for Model Casting

Awesome, you have just got your ticket to enter an exciting industry. However, your performance at Casting is pivotal in determining whether you get selected by the agency and paves the way for the subsequent opportunities you will acquire as a model.

1. Check and follow the requirements

Important details such as the timing of the casting call, what you need to bring, expected dress code and all the important details must be strictly followed to ease your casting process. It is very unlikely that you will attend an audition where there aren’t many others casting for the same opportunity, and the agency rarely has much time to waste. So being late or not bringing what is required will significantly slow down the process and cause you to wait much longer. Besides, that is the last first impression you want to create (Or the last impression you will make). Check the website to see what’s required for casting and call the agency and clarify directly.

2. Your overall look: Simple.

Your look is something you need spend some time thinking about. A model agency wants to see the raw talent and beauty you can offer them for them to work with. If you wrap yourself up in makeup, fancy patterned shirts/dresses, and excessive jewelry it will interfere with their creativity which is trying to suit your natural look to multiple modeling styles. You will result in creating an impression that you are not a versatile model. Go as simple as you possibly with the lightest makeup. For example, a bit of foundation to hide some blemishes and scars.

Check if there is a dress code in the description else just wear a solid colored dress, jeans, tank top or anything that makes you comfortable so long as it’s simple and plain colored. A further tip, don’t apply too much perfume or cologne as it may put off the judge/interviewer if he/she doesn’t like that smell. Apply some basic deodorant to ensure your odor is in control and that would suffice.

3. Healthy lifestyle, radiate natural beauty

The best way to look good naturally is to stick to healthy wholesome foods and completely avoiding fried, oily and fast food. You also want to drink enough water and get the adequate sleep you need as you lead up to your casting call. You should stay off alcohol and late nights at least week before your casting call.

4. Expect to wait

Waiting is going to be hard if you are impatient. Casting calls are usually filled with many aspiring hopefuls so you will most likely have to wait for some time before your turn. Bring a book or newspaper you can read while you wait, and don’t let the waiting affect your emotion and thought. It is completely expected and normal to wait, and no matter what time you are called you should always go to your casting with a cool head.

5. Wear your confidence

Whether you get selected by a …
