The Thai adaptation of the webtoon turned K-drama is called Beauty Newbie and it features Thai superstars Baifern (Crazy Little Thing Called Love) and Win Metawin (2gether: The Series).

Baifern will be taking on the role of Liu, a girl who has been bullied her whole life for her looks and eventually decides to undergo cosmetic surgery to look “more normal.” However, her surgery makes her “too beautiful,” drawing unwanted attention towards her and attracts bullies who tell her that she has ‘artificial’ beauty.

On the other hand, Win Metawin plays Guy, a campus heartthrob who went to the same middle school as Liu. He knows how she looked back then but reveals he never ridiculed her for her looks, unlike their other classmates. Guy now looks out for Liu and eventually develops feelings for her.

Other members of the cast include Jane Ramida Jiranorraphat (The Gifted) as Faye, Great Sapol Assawamunkong (Catch Me Baby) as Saint and Amy Thasorn Klinnium (School Tales The Series). It’s directed by Mui Aticha Tanthanawigrai (F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers).
