An upcoming fantasy romance "Beauty Inside" (literal translation) will star 21 stars as a single character.

The star lineup includes actors Yoo Yeon-seok and Park Shin-hye, among 19 other high and low-profile stars, who all enact the main character Woo-jin.

Woo-jin, as the main character, takes on a completely different form -- ranging from male, female, old, young and a range of nationalities -- every time he wakes up from sleep.
