Lee Joo Young’s hair transformations on “Itaewon Class” are stealing the show!
The actress is currently appearing in the popular JTBC drama as Ma Hyun Yi, the chef of Park Sae Roy (Park Seo Joon)’s pub Dan Bam.
In the beginning, Ma Hyun Yi was first introduced to viewers with silver hair, making Lee Joo Young look as if she had stepped out of the webtoon that the drama is based on.
However, Ma Hyun Yi has since undergone more than one dramatic hair transformation.
Viewers were surprised to see the character dancing in the club scene with long black hair, giving her a goddess look that had an entirely different appeal from her short silver hair. The scene signaled an important moment in the plot and featured a revelation about the character’s identity.
Finally, Ma Hyun Yi is currently sporting a darker look than her original hairstyle. After Dan Bam’s manager Jo Yi Seo (played by Kim Da Mi) told her, “You look good with black hair, sis,” the chef dyed her hair black.
Lee Joo Young’s drastic hair transformations have been creating lots of buzz among fans, who are impressed by how the actress has managed to capture Ma Hyun Yi’s various charms. Depending on her hairstyle, she can come across as chic, cute, or everything in between.
“Itaewon Class” airs on Fridays and Saturdays at 10:50 p.m. KST.
