The massively popular Lookism webcomic series is getting ready for its big anime debut with Netflix, and has released the opening theme sequence for fans early featuring a new single from ATEEZ, "Like That"! As Netflix continues to explore more of their options when it comes to anime original adaptations and productions, one of the coolest aspects of it are the greater opportunities for webcomic adaptations. Park Tae-joon's original series already has a huge fanbase, and that could get even bigger with the anime. It had been delayed from its original planned release earlier this Fall, so fans have been eager to see how it all turns out.
This is especially notable because massively popular group ATEEZ will be lending their talents to the Studio MIR (the same studio behind Legend of Korra, DOTA: Dragon's Blood and more) for the opening, "Like That." The opening teases some of the faces fans will meet in the new anime series, and hypes up the kind of energy that could work out for a fun experience if the webcomic is anything to go by.

Just like the original webtoon, the story of the animated series Lookism' also deals with the subtle lookism and materialism present in the lives of people living in modern society."
