5 Outfits from K-Webtoon Drama True Beauty That You Can Recreate
For most of us, K-Dramas are a way for us to escape from reality. We enjoy watching characters grow and overcome hardships, and in the case of romance dramas—rooting for the male lead to finally get the girl. True Beauty, the popular Korean drama that was adapted from a webtoon, checks all of the boxes.
Many girls can relate to the main character, Jugyeong, who is deeply insecure about her looks, and only feels confident about her appearance when she wears makeup. As the drama progresses, Jugyeong learns to place less importance on her physical appearance, as well as pay less attention to societal pressures.
This is something that many of us can learn from! But other than her road to self-confidence, another aspect of Jugyeong that is both relatable and aspirational is her fashion. From her comfy stay-at-home looks, to her more dressed up looks after gaining some confidence, Jugyeong favours a casual but feminine style.
Let’s take a look at 5 different outfits Jugyeong has worn on True Beauty, and find out how we can recreate these looks with the clothes available on StyleupK!
Casual layered look
It’s no surprise that horror comics fan Jugyeong would wear a shirt with a skull on it, but she adds a girly touch by layering it over a light pink long-sleeved top.

Lazy stay-at-home look
Jugyeong goes full homebody with this super casual hoodie look, and it’s a style that most of us have rocked during this pandemic. The ends of her hoodie string are tied into a butterfly bow, giving this outfit a cute touch, along with the pastel purple sweatpants.

Cosy hangout look
The weather has been quite rainy in Singapore recently, and cooler temperatures means it’s a great time to rock some cute cardigan looks. Jugyeong wears a V-neck cardigan over a white tee, and it looks both cute and cosy!

Soft knit sweater look
Cosy and comfy looks aren’t limited to stay-at-home outfits, and Jugyeong rocks a cute knit sweater look outdoors as well. In order to dress the outfit up slightly more, she styles the knit sweater with a cute handbag.

Luxurious high teen look
Jugyeong embodies the high teen aesthetic in this glitzy nighttime look, wearing a cute long-sleeved cardigan as a top and styling it with a darker handbag. While the bag is similar in shape to the one in the previous look, the deeper colour makes a big difference in terms of the overall vibe.

Over the course of the drama, we’ve seen Jugyeong rocking many different outfits, but they all have a consistent style. Her outfits are often practical—she’s often seen wearing sweatpants or jeans—but they always have a distinctly feminine touch. She incorporates pastel colours into her outfits, giving her the sweet edge that we expect of a K-Drama romance lead.Shop for your own True Beauty inspired outfit at StyleupK today, worldwide delivery available!
