There’s an upcoming K-movie that that just finished casting and about to start filming that sounds entertaining on concept alone. The movie is called Beauty Inside and tells the story of an adult marriage-aged man who suffers from an unexplained condition whereby he wakes up every morning as a completely different person on the outside. He changes age, gender, and nationality in different permutations, so today he could wake up looking like 25 year old Park Shin Hye (playing one of the incarnations) while tomorrow he turns into 44 year old Lee Bum Soo (also another incarnation).
This movie was first announced back in September as Park Seo Joon, Lee Jin Wook, and Yoo Yeon Seok would be playing the same male character. That’s still true now as all three are part of the rotating cast, but as the curtains are pulled back the breadth of the massive cast shows that there will be 20 Korean actors and actresses tackling the same male lead role in the movie. Totally overshadowed here is news that Han Hyo Joo is the female lead and the woman who loves her man inside despite his ever changing physical appearance.
Row 1: Kim Dae Myung, Do Ji Han, Jeon Young Un, Park Shin Hye, Lee Bum Soo
Row 2: Park Seo Joon, Kim Sang Ho, Cheon Woo Hee, Lee Jae Joon, Hong Dam Yi
Row 3: Jo Dae Hwan, Lee Jin Wook, Kim Min Jae, Seo Kang Joon, Kim Hee Won
Row 4:Lee Dong Wook, Go Ah Sung, Lee Seung Hwan, Kim Joo Hyuk, Yoo Yeon Seok
These 20 young-to-old actors and actresses will share the present day screen time playing the male lead, and in addition 50 more actors and actresses will show up as the same male lead inside character briefly through flashbacks, with a grand total of 70 entertainers all playing one character.
