Season 1 had its highs and lows but was largely enjoyed by the viewers and now fans can’t wait to see True Beauty season 2!
Since the Webtoon has not ended, even though Season 1 gave a definite endings fans hope that the drama has a season two which may cover parts of the webtoon missed earlier as well as fix the disappointments from season 1.
Let us first have a look at what went about in season 1 and then what could possibly happen in season 2.
Season 1 Review
In South Korean society, looks predominate any other quality when judging people. Therefore, skincare and makeup are a necessity in the country.
Born as an average-looking girl, Im suffers a lot of harassment based on her looks both by friends and family. Due to family circumstances, she gets to move to a different area.
Thanks to makeup her life takes a different turn and she becomes the center of attraction in her class. But her happiness is short-lived since not only does she end up in a love triangle but jealous classmates bring up her bitter past!
It takes all her own effort, Su-ho, and Seo-jun’s pure intentions, and constant support to get back up stronger and independent. She decides to take the challenge head-on and fight against the judgemental world.
Though with a few hardships & rejections she gains a lovely boyfriend and some very reliable friends! And ultimately takes the path to fulfill her dream of becoming a makeup artist.
Not the best drama in its genre, but True beauty did deliver what it promised too! A running commentary on how materialistic our societies have become, how selfish people can be to laugh when one is in pain.
They do manage to show that the goodness in a few people can save the lives of many others and how we should strive to be like them. The only constant complaint from the viewers would the painful second lead syndrome!
Seo-Jun deserved better, Period. Overall it is a cute, romantic drama for anyone and everyone who wish to watch and chill. You can read more on the character analysis from True Beauty here.

Is True Beauty Season 2 Possible?
A season 2 for True Beauty seems highly unlikely since the pacing was sped up, and a proper ending was given even though the webtoon is ongoing. Even though the show was mostly well-received the last 2 episodes felt unsatisfactory.
It is like the whole concept of the first lead getting the girl was so necessary, that to make it fit they messed up what could have been a better ending and could have left hope for season 2. Ultimately, most viewers wished for Seo-Jun to get a better ending than enjoying the very forced lead love in the last 2 episodes.
Up till now, there has been no news for the reprisal of season 2 of True Beauty by TVN but considering how popular the cast was, fans still hope for season 2.
If a season 2, does come into the picture finally the demand the must be met is to see a happier Seo-Jun with maybe more emphasis on side characters and their love lives!
As for the leading duo, in season 2 fans would hope for a more mature relationship with both of them balancing their professional and private lives well.
True Beauty 2nd Season Release Date
Up until now, there has been no update regarding the air date for the show. However, considering the popularity – there’s no way the show won’t get a continuation. Most likely, True Beauty Season 2 will release in Late 2021.

Need More? Hit up the Webtoon!
True Beauty’s original source material, the hit webtoon has 136 episodes up and is read by almost 6 million people around the world. Even before the Live adaptation was announced True Beauty was one of the most popular stories, ranking in the top romance stories.
Many major changes were made from the comic to Kdrama for example Han Joon’s character was originally a creep. But in the drama is very sweet and genuine, a great teacher, and it’s thanks to his personality that Lim’s sister falls for him.
Besides this, the story is ongoing while the drama provides a definite endgame. Also, Lim’s identity is still a well-kept secret unlike the reveal in the drama so it will be interesting to witness what kind of a dramatic reveal the author has planned.
Also, the biggest request, we drama viewers have is seeing Seo-jun happy! Since there is probably a lot to happen before it ends, let us be optimistic and hope the author does justice to Seo-jun’s character and doesn’t force the ending like in the drama.
