On the October 9 broadcast of currently airing JTBC drama 'Beauty Inside', Hwayoung made her first entrance as the role of actress Chae Yu Ri.
Hwayoung's role Chae Yu Ri serves as a direct rival antagonist for the drama's female lead Han Se Gye (played by Seo Hyun Jin). On this episode, Han Se Gye learns that the film director who cast her in her debut role did not cast her for his new film, instead casting Chae Yu Ri. Han Se Gye barges in to see the film director, who happens to be meeting with Chae Yu Ri, and gets on her knees to beg for a chance at his film. Chae Yu Ri snickers evilly watching Han Se Gye on her knees.
Playing a fairly big antagonistic role in 'Beauty Inside', Hwayoung will likely continue to appear frequently in the drama. This marks Hwayoung's first small-screen production return since her dating violence controversy with entertainer LJ.
How are netizens reacting to Hwayoung's return? Some viewers pointed out that controversies aside, Hwayoung portrayed her role perfectly: "Hwayoung is really good at those kinds of nasty characters, isn't she? She was so good in 'Youth Generation'", "You have to admit, she's just good at evil roles", "I don't particularly like her or anything but for what reason did she have to come out later than all the other characters exactly?", "She's good at acting though? Why are there so many haters? Wasn't she the victim?", etc.
However, other netizens responded negatively to her return, with opinions that due to her image, it will be difficult to focus on the drama: "Her being in this drama just took down the quality several notches", "Why do they cast actresses even though they've had controversies in the past? There are plenty of pretty actresses with good backgrounds", "Shouldn't she rest for at least another year?", "Director, can you please cast actors and actresses who can be good role models for our children", "I'm uncomfortable watching her", and more.
