Upcoming growth drama "My ID is Gangnam Beauty" has released a teaser and nearly 12-minutes of highlight videos giving us a better look at the heroine and her beau's backstory, as well as the conflicts that will challenge their student and personal life moving forward. From campus enemies to parental disappointment, the two have a lot on their plate.
One major point of the videos is Kang Mi-rae's (Im Soo-hyang) journey through bullying, intense dieting and surgery, as well as the hope that her life would be easier afterwards. This doesn't fix a whole lot, of course, as the same types of people who made her life difficult before have simply switched ammunition, now using her cosmetic work against her.
Mi-rae had gone through a lot, and even nearly lost her life to depression, when Na Hye-seong (Park Joo-mi) saved her. Hye-seong is Do Kyeong-seok's (Cha Eun-woo) mother, which brings us to another interesting point in these videos; the leads' relationships with their parents. While Mi-rae faces her father's rejection over her decision, Kyeong-seok is about to reunite with an absent mother who has made her return to Korea.
There are clearly a lot of skeletons in everyone's closet, but the videos also showcase the drama's nature as a romantic youth one, focusing on the heroes' campus living, as well as the love lines forming. It seems like we'll have a lot to explore in "My ID is Gangnam Beauty", which will be premiering on Friday, July 27th on jTBC.
