What to Know About Lookism?
If you are not familiar with Lookism, the series debuted in November 2014 under creator Park Tae-John. The series is ongoing with 19 volumes and premiered on Naver WEBTOON before heading to WEBTOON services across the globe. Earlier this year, Netflix confirmed it was adapting Lookism into an anime under Studio Mir, the company that helped oversee The Legend of Korea and Voltron: Legendary Defender. The show is slated to drop in November, so fans won't need to wait much longer for its release.
Of course, Lookism is far from the only manhwa that has been adapted into an anime as of late. Several major titles including Tower of God and Noblesse have made their animated debuts, after all. Other successes include The God of High School and Sweet Home while titles like Solo Leveling are currently being produced.
