Based on writer Ahum's webtoon with the same name, "Shadow Beauty," which was published on Kakao Page, tells the story of an unpredictable double life of a girl who turns into a celebrity "Genie" who has 770,000 followers in real life.
The original film attracted 700,000 subscribers and received a 9.1 rating.
Shim Dal-gi, who will play Koo Jung-jin, said, "It is very meaningful to be able to play a character in a popular webtoon that was loved by many people in the drama". "As it is a character that is unique but has pain that anyone can relate to, we will work hard to reach the hearts of many people."
Choi Bo-min, who will play Kim Ho-in, the class leader, said, "It is a character that feels completely different from the character that I have shown so far, and the fun and immersion of the script are so great that I quickly became attracted to the character."
Meanwhile, Kakao TV's original 'Shadow Beauty' will be released in the second half of this year with a total of 13 parts, about 20 minutes per episode.
