Brand new romantic drama My ID is Gangnam Beauty ventures into the world of bullying based on someone's physical looks, while reminding us about true love that shines from self confidence. Starring Im Soo Hyang and ASTRO member Cha Eun Woo, the drama is adapted from a popular webtoon. Find out more about the drama here.

A university student bullied for her looks gets plastic surgery. But when the bullying doesn’t stop, she meets someone who shows her the true meaning of beauty.


Aspiring perfumer Kang Mi Rae (Im Soo Hyang, IRIS 2) has been bullied her entire life for being “ugly.” Outspoken but also insecure, she gets plastic surgery and shows up to college as a new person. But the bullying doesn’t stop. She is instead teased for her new face and is disparagingly called “Gangnam Beauty.” Fellow student Do Kyung Suk (Cha Eun Woo, ASTRO, The Best Hit) is wealthy, handsome, and intelligent. He appears to have everything and seems rather cold, but is actually caring. He falls for Kang Mi Rae and wants to show her that true beauty is on the inside.

Yeon Woo Young (Kwak Dong Yeon, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) is a chemistry graduate student and teaching assistant. As he gets to know Kang Mi Rae, he also starts to care for her, seeing the person behind the looks. Hyun Soo Ah (Jo Woo Ri, Go Go Waikiki) is the most popular and gorgeous girl in the college chemistry department. She seems like the nicest person alive, but looks can be deceiving. As Do Kyung Suk helps Kang Mi Rae slowly gain confidence, she learns what true beauty really is. It’s the ultimate ugly duckling story, in full Gangnam style!

My ID is Gangnam Beauty is directed by Choi Sung Bum (9 End 2 Outs) and written by Choi Soo Young (Sly and Single Again, Pure Love). It is based on the popular webtoon by Gi Maeng Gi. It aired in 2018
