Netflix has dropped the first trailer for the Korean animated series “Lookism,” based on the webtoon of the same name.
The streaming giant posted the trailer to YouTube on Sunday.
The show follows protagonist Park Hyeong-seok, a high schooler who is often harassed by his peers for being unattractive. One day, he wakes up and has a different but fit body which he can use as his original body sleeps. The series “deals with the subtle lookism and materialism present in the lives of people living in modern society,” according to the trailer’s description.
The video features an original song from K-pop boy group ATEEZ, but the title of the track has yet to be revealed.
South Korean animation studio Studio Mir will produce the upcoming series. Studio Mir has worked on many notable projects, including “Avatar: The Legend of Korra,” “Voltron: Legendary Defender,” “The Boondocks,” “Young Justice: Phantoms,” “Dota: Dragon’s Blood” and “Harley Quinn.”
“Lookism,” which is set to premiere on Nov. 4, is an adaptation of the 2014 webtoon series by Park Tae-jun. As of now, the English-translated version of “Lookism” has been viewed over 600 million times and has amassed 2.6 million subscribers on the official Webtoon app.
