‘Beauty Newbie’ starring Win Metawin and Baifern set to premiere on February 19

Some kind of love is more than what meets the eye. Get ready to feel your heart throbbing with Beauty Newbie, the latest romantic series from GMMTV and Wattpad WEBTOON Studios. Adapted from the popular WEBTOON webcomic My ID is Gangnam Beauty by Maenggi Ki with 1.46 billion views from fans around the world, it tells the story of a college freshman girl who decides to get plastic surgery after being bullied for how she looks her entire life. The campus is where she meets a guy who doesn’t judge anyone by their appearance, but rather by their heart, which leads to the start of a beautiful relationship.

Starring the popular Win-Metawin Opas-iamkajorn and the veteran Baifern-Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul in the lead roles, the cast members also include Great Sapol, Jane Ramida, Drake Sattubut, Louis Thanawin, Aou Thanaboon, Emi Thasorn, Ployphach Phatchatorn, Pod Suphakorn, Est Supha, Mike Chinnarat, Jeab Sopidnapa, Um Amarin, Jaoying Krongkwan, and many others. Directed by the talented Mui-Aticha Tanthanawigrai, we believe the story reflects perfectly the real-world emphasis on looks and images instead of the importance of the true self that is more than skin-deep.

When Liu (Baifern Pimchanok) decides to have a whole-face plastic surgery to stop people from bullying her and looking down on her dream of becoming a perfumer, she finally finds her first ever friend in Faye (Jane Ramida), an angelic natural beauty. But things don’t go her way when she meets Guy (Win Metawin), the campus heartthrob who went to the same school as Liu and tells her to be careful of Faye, which gives Liu all the more reason to hate him.

Meanwhile, Liu finds comfort in Saint (Great Sapol), a graduate student and her next-door neighbor, who is always by her side. Her seemingly peaceful new life takes a turn, however, when a situation calls for her to tell everyone that she’s a plastic beauty. People start talking and criticizing, and Liu once again doubts whether even with this beautiful face, she’s still not worthy of anything.

Will Liu get through this, and what kind of scent will her blooming romance bring? Find out in Beauty Newbie.

Catch Beauty Newbie every Monday and Tuesday at 8.30 p.m. on GMM25 and stream online at 10.30 p.m. the same night on Viu. The first episode premieres on February 19.
