"True Beauty was the first webtoon I ever saw/read. I happened to see someone reading it on their phone and when I asked about it, I got eager replies from a group of people catching me up on all things webtoon and True Beauty 💄From there I started the webtoon, it was about 40eps in at the time, so considering I spent 4 years with the comic and the sentimental value I have towards it, I'd expect to say the original was better, but I actually enjoyed the drama more. The storyline was different (no spoilers) but I feel like ultimately this one carries out the message a bit better. For starters, this Jugyeong is what I hoped the webtoon one would be. The story also didn't feel so dragged out, if you've read the webtoon, you know what I mean. The cast was also so perfect! I seriously can't imagine someone better for any of our main three. Add to that, the well done comedy, this show was honestly pretty amazing. I do recommend! 9/10🌟"
"this is a very good beginner drama. it was one of my firsts and i would recommend it to others also trying to get into kdramas. it has great characters and a good storyline. some of the scenes are cringe but you gotta just push through. overall i rly enjoyed it. if you planned on watching this you should also read the webtoon!! spoilers. one of the main complaints i had was that they didn’t include ju-kyung and seo-jin dating. i watched the drama before reading the webtoon. while watching the drama i wanted the two to end up together so bad. i didn’t like how cold su-ho was towards ju-kyung. but then i read the webtoon and it was so different. after reading the webtoon i was voting for su-ho and ju-kyung. i think the drama is well written but i just wish they would’ve showed a little more.

"This show is good, but I don’t understand why it got so much hype. The plot is basically the plot of any high school American movie, which is fine, but it was an episode too long. The acting was good, I just found it boring. I binged the first 12 episodes in about a week, and then it took me 3 months to finish the rest of it. I also have beef with the writers because the second male lead deserved to get the girl way more😩 I’d give this a 6.5/10"
"The show itself was very good in my opinion, super cute and uplifting, BUT, the main male lead in this drama is just absolutely awful. The only reason he gets away with his behavior is because, one, he’s hot, and two, the main female lead likes him more then the second male lead (for some ungodly reason). He had his good moments, but honestly his personality and so many of his actions are appalling, and I think a lot of younger people watching this show aren’t going to realize that. It’s one thing when it’s your standard romance drama trope, but this male lead is just downright toxic. He’s possessive, emotionally abusive at times, and has so many other red flags. I’m normally not this critical of a drama, but his character really irked me and the second male lead was SO MUCH BETTER. ."
