Lookism Manga Overview
Partially inspired by a model, Park Hyung-Seok, the webtoon is helmed by a model himself. Taejun reflects on his own life experiences in his webtoon and tries to publicize the concept of lookism–an umbrella term for body shaming and appearance bias. The webtoon follows a fictional Park Hyung Seok, a chubby Korean high school student. While he is extremely kind-hearted and compassionate, his noble traits remain suppressed under his physical appearance. Hyung-Seok has been a victim of eve teasing throughout his life but his classmate, Logan Lee, takes the bullying to another level.
Hyung-Seok is a plump and meek student who fails to stand up to Logan or any of his bullies. As his mental health starts deteriorating and Park becomes extremely frustrated, he begins taking out his agitation on his mother. Hyung-Seok’s mother, Kim, is a single parent who has to work two jobs to sustain themselves. Upon witnessing Hyung-Seok’s condition, Kim utilizes all her savings to transfer him to Seoul. But before he could resume school in Seoul, Hyung-Seok receives a magical power. According to this ability, Park could shapeshift from an obese and unattractive person to an athletic model.
Lookism Chapter 463 Plot
By daytime, Park becomes Daniel, his attractive alter ego that symbolizes everything he isn’t. Daniel is bold, brave and brazen while Park is timid and weak. While he starts enjoying the development of his personality as Daniel by daytime, Park cannot shed his true self in the nighttime. Though initially, Hyung-Seok rejoices in his current circumstances, he slowly starts to grow wary of them. As he explores the orthodox mindset of those around him, Hyung-Seok becomes determined to not let his secret purge out.
Moreover, Hyung-Seok has now become bitter towards everyone who hails Daniel but downplays himself despite the two being equally generous. Due to his transformed outlook on life, he becomes a model and starts witnessing the extent of prejudice through a grim lens. In this upcoming chapter, Daniel will continue searching for his friend, Park Jin-Young, who has allegedly gone missing.
