WEBTOON creators have had a successful few years in the move from digital comic to Netflix adaptations, and we’ve got one more for this year. Taejun Pak‘s Lookism kicks off today and follows in the footsteps of All of Us Are Dead, Hellbound, The Sound of Music and Sweet Home.
Lookism follows Daniel, an unattractive loner who wakes up in a different body. But not just any old body. He is now tall, handsome and way cooler than Daniel ever imagined. But now he has to find a way to stay in this body and keep the world from knowing the truth. Pak’s digital comic has garnered over nine billion views globally since its release on WEBTOON in June 2017. If you haven’t read it, we highly suggest giving it a look!
The series is one of our favorites, and are beyond excited to dive into the Netflix adaptation. The series stars Shim Kyu-hyuck, Han Shin, Ryu Seung-gone, Jeong Jae-heon, Nam Doh-hyeong, Hwang Chang-yung and Sa Moon-young. The animated adaptation for Lookism keeps with the heartfelt and emotional journey Daniel faces but keeps the drama that we love most.
Lookism‘s eight-episode series is now available to binge on Netflix, and we have high hopes that we will be seeing another season. With the increasing popularity of these WEBTOON adaptations, we are hopeful that more and more of them will make the jump from the digital comic screen to whatever screen you enjoy Netflix on. Will you be binging it this weekend? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
