It's been a hot minute since True Beauty wrapped up and we are already *so* emotional. If you have waited every Thursday and Friday for the webtoon drama to air, we know you also feel this way! And just like us, you're also probably looking for new series to fill in the void left by Ju Kyung (Moon Ga Young), Suho (Cha Eun Woo), Seojun (Hwang In Yeop), Soo Jin (Park Yoo Na), and the rest of the cast, right?

No need to look far—here are six K-dramas on Netflix and Viu that you should watch after True Beauty

1. My ID Is Gangnam Beauty (2018)

Where you can watch it: Netflix and Viu

My ID Is Gangnam Beauty is *almost* the same as True Beauty (the title is already a giveaway!), only that it's set in college and instead of makeup, the lead star gets plastic surgery. The K-drama gives viewers a glimpse of South Korea's plastic surgery industry and the struggles of those who choose to go under the knife. There's also a bully here that you'll get super annoyed with! Plus, if you're on #TeamSuho, you'll certainly love this drama: Cha Eun Woo is also the lead star here, along with Im Soo Hyang

2. Extraordinary You (2019)

Where you can watch it: Netflix and Viu

Adapted from the popular manhwa July Found By Chance, this K-drama is also about young love like True Beauty, but with more fantasy elements attached! The characters live in the world of comics and the female lead, Eun Dan Oh, is an extra character with an ordinary story—but she's determined to be the star of her own show. Expect the kind of kilig that will make you kick your feet in the air with Extraordinary You (EOY), and be mesmerized by the magical life set in comic books. (Fun fact: EOY  was also filmed in the same university as True Beauty!)


P.S: The drama's cast members, Kim Hye Hyoon, Lee Jae Wook, Kim Young Dae, Lee Tae Ri, and Jung Gun Joo, all made special cameos in True Beauty

3. Boys Over Flowers (2009) 

Where you can watch it: Netflix and Viu

Before there was #TeamSuho vs. #TeamSeojun, Boys Over Flower's Gu Jun Pyo (Lee Min Ho) and Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong) divided the Koreanovela nation! The two are childhood BFFs and members of F4, the elite group in Shinhwa High School that comprises the wealthiest and most popular guys on the campus. A girl named Geum Jan Di (Ku Hye Sun) enters the school, meets the boys, and gets caught in a love triangle. 

4. Dream High (2011)

Where you can watch it: Netflix and Viu

Here's a high school drama that will remind you of Seojun's idol dreams: Dream High revolves around the lives of six high school students (Bae Suzy, Ok Taecyeon, Jang Wooyoung, Ham Eun Jung IU, and Kim Soo Hyun) training to become K-pop stars in an academy called Kirin High School. In real life, the cast members are actually K-pop idols, except for Soo Hyun who's a well-known actor!

5. Oh My Venus (2015)

Where you can watch it: Netflix and Viu

Kang Joo Eun (Shin Min Ah) used to be the ulzzang (the most good-looking) in high school and was hailed as the "Venus Of Daegu." After 33 years, she became a lawyer with her unparalleled wit but she has deep insecurities about her body. Because of this, her self-esteem dropped. Joo Eun later met John Kim (So Ji Sub), a recognized personal trainer of Hollywood celebs who helps her with her weight loss journey.

6. Love Alarm (2019)

Where you can watch it: Netflix

Another webtoon drama that became an iconic hit is the Netflix original series Love Alarm, led by Song KangKim So Hyun, and Jung Ga Ram. Similar to True Beauty, Song Kang and Ga Ram's characters are childhood friends who happen to like the same woman in school. What makes it even more interesting is that involves an app called "Love Alarm," which can tell who has a crush on you from a 10-meter radius!
