Lookism is all set to be released in November and to amaze you with its incredible story. Korean webtoons are gradually becoming a popular series on Online platforms for a while, and with Korean popular culture fading in recent days, it was just a matter of time until manhwa and webtoons appeared in the animated media.
Park Tae-jun is a South Korean webtoon writer and illustrator. It was initially posted online on Naver WEBTOON in November 2014. The plot centers around a highschool boy who has the ability to shift from two bodies: one overweight and ugly and one athletic and very handsome.
It was just reported that Netflix would be airing an animated version of the webtoon, and read on to find out about it in this post.
On September 25, 2022, a Lookism animated series was revealed during Netflix’s “Tudum” online event. Studio Mar will create the adaptation, which will be developed in the manner of the initial webtoon rather than in the typical form of anime.
It is set to be published on Netflix on November 4, 2022, with the opening theme performed by K-Pop band Ateez.
When is the Lookism Release Date?
Park Tae-jun is certainly a South Korean webtoon writer and illustrator. It debuted on Naver WEBTOON in November 2014 and is currently online, with 19 compiled editions released so far. It is a television drama that has been released in the United States, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Spain, France, Japan and China.
Lookism grew in popularity as a result of the subjects it examined, and have become a worldwide sensation. Back in 2019, Tencent developed Wàimào Zhshàng Zhy, a 38-episode Chinese TV show based on Lookism. Lomon, Wayne Zhang, Wang Zi Xuan, and Dino Lee appeared in the Chinese series.
Specifically, on September 25, 2022, during its “Tudum” online event, Netflix revealed that an animated version of Lookism will be arriving on its streaming platform, with the opening song performed by -K-Pop band Ateez.
While little is known about the adaptation, we do know that it’ll be released on Netflix on November 4, 2022.
With the release date set for November 3, 2022, it is only reasonable that Lookism has at least one teaser available, giving us a taste of what to expect from the series.
Knowing Netflix’s release practices, this was utterly predictable, and we get a first look trailer, which is the only one we have seen so far.
What is the plot of Lookism?
The narrative of Lookism is unknown at the time. We understand that it’ll adopt a portion of the original webtoon, however, we haven’t any clue where it will go in that regard. What follows is a brief summary of the webtoon’s narrative, so you can get a sense of what to anticipate from the animated series, even if it is just on a broad level.
Daniel Park, also known as Park Hyung Suk, is an undesirable, overweight, and unattractive highschool student who is ridiculed and despised. Logan Lee relentlessly bullies and harasses him on an everyday basis, and often takes out his anger verbally at his mother. He transfers to Seoul and enrolls in a new highschool, keen to escape his current problems and begin over.
But, one night during a vacation, he transforms into a tall, strong, and very attractive man. He also understands that sleeping in one body makes him wake up in another, and irrespective of how long he has been awake, he all the time feels refreshed in the body he lives in. His days are all the time divided between his two bodies, his lovely body during the day and his original body at night.
As Daniel navigates his existence with two bodies, he realizes how often society discriminates against individuals just because they’re unattractive or different. As a result, the piece is titled “Lookism.” He feels the bias and hostility of the world through his original body while he experiences compassion and special privileges through the other.
Using his new body, he has a multitude of life experiences, including becoming a star, intern for an entertainment firm, and modeling clothes. After Daniel returns to his own body and day turns to night, this fantasy becomes a harsh reality of what the world really is.
