The Temperature of Love actress is staging a comeback with a romantic comedy. New JTBC drama ‘Beauty Inside’ will star Seo Hyun Jin and Lee Min Ki, be directed by the Another Oh Hae Young producer Song Hyun Wook, and air this fall/winter.

Synopsis

Actress Han Se Gye (Seo Hyun Jin) may lead a scandalous private life. But she has a knack for acting, and her fans say she has a hundred faces. She keeps a secret from the rest of the world, though, which is that her body transforms into a stranger’s once a month. Seo Do Jae (Lee Min Ki) is a managing director at an airline company. He’s good looking and smart, but unable to recognize faces. To make up for the face blindness, he memorizes people’s gestures and trivial habits to remember who they are. When Han Se Gye and Seo Do Jae cross paths in life, unexpected things are about to happen.

The concept of one’s body changing while the inside stays the same comes from the 2012 social film series of the same name.


This series, put together by Intel and Toshiba, is a story of a guy named Alex who wakes up every day as somebody else. This doesn’t seem to bother him so much until he meets and falls in love with Leah.

It was was adapted into a Korean film in 2015 starring Han Hyo Joo. She falls in love with Kim Woo Jin, who wakes up in the faces of actors Park SHin Hye, Lee Bum Soo, Park Seo Joon, Lee Jin Wook, Seo Kang Joon, Lee Dong Wook, Yoo Yeon Suk, and more.


The premise of changing into a stranger drew Seo Hyun Jin to take part in ‘Beauty Inside.’ She’s certain that the drama will have a different--perhaps a lighter--vibe than the previous film versions. She says, “The drama captured my heart because of its refreshing subject matter. I think that I’ll able to show many new sides of myself through [the character] Han Se Gye, who lives someone else’s life once a month, so I’m excited and looking forward to it. More than anything, I think that the drama will be able to entertain viewers in an entirely different way from the original movie.”

We’re super stoked about this drama, especially because we loved Seo Hyun Jin in Another Oh Hae Young and Temperature of Love.
