To maintain its hard-earned kids’ fan base, Netflix must keep up with animation shows and other related content.
The popular streaming platform recently revealed that Lookism, a Korean anime show, will be landing on its plate in early December. Lookism is an adaptation of Park Hyeong-Seok's webtoon of the same name.
What’s Season One of ‘Lookism’ About?
Lookism season one brings out the concept of a society that believes more in good physical looks than in one’s character or determination. A high school student, Park Hyung Suk, is forced to live double lives with two separate bodies to overcome the challenges.
After repeated cases of bullying and discrimination for his short, weighty, and unattractive appearance, Hyung Suk chooses to shift to a high school popularly known for careless students.
Before the transfer, Hyung Suk wakes to a new and attractive body, while his ordinary one still lies beside him. When one of the two bodies falls asleep, Hyung Suk awakens in its counterpart.
The previously discriminated Hyung Suk is now exposed to a new celebrity life at school as he tries to discover where the fancy body might have originated.
