The webtoon artist and creator of the comic My ID is Gangnam Beauty got candid about her thoughts on the upcoming Korean drama remake. So far, she loves JTBC's spin on her work of art!

Stars Im Soo Hyang and Cha Eun Woo are doing their best to bring Kee Maeng Kee's precious webcomic to life, and she is very overjoyed. Like many ASTRO fans, Kee thinks Eun Woo is gorgeous. "I asked the staff continuously to cast an undeniably handsome actor for Kyung Suk, and I was happy it came true. When I watched the teaser, it seemed like Cha Eun Woo's Do Kyung Suk was even more attractive than my Do Kyung Suk," she said.

Fans of the webcomic were 100% supportive of Im Soo Hyang playing their beloved leading lady. Kee Maeng Kee is elated with Im headlining the series as well! "I am thankful that she said yes to the offer, even though the role of a plastic beauty can be burdensome. When I saw her facial expressions in the lecture hall, she was literally M Rae. I loved the scene so much that it is currently my profile picture,"

Don't worry about the show not being true to the original webtoon. Kee seems to be very involved in the production of the series. "Currently, the drama's scriptwriter is sending me completed scripts per each episode, and I read it through and suggest changes or commentary."

Kee Maeng Kee is highly anticipating next week's premiere just like the rest of us! "Above all, I was thankful for the drama staff's desire to project the themes from my original work into the drama. I am waiting for the drama's premiere with a fluttering heart."

Kwak Dong Yeon and Jo Woo Ri also star in this wonderful rom-com. My ID is Gangnam Beauty premieres exclusively on DramaFever next Friday, July 27.
