Hwang In-Youp Uncovers True Beauty with BYS Philippines

The rising South Korean star is the new face of BYS Philippines

It’s 2021 and we welcome you to an all-embracing world where we are all beautiful. We are moving toward a better place where beauty is more about individuality and self-awareness and becoming less a matter of the generations-old perceived perfection.

This 2021, we Uncover Beauty with BYS Philippines. This year’s campaign is a testament to the brand’s voice of empowerment in the beauty landscape, with both the makeup and skincare lines at the forefront.

Many times, makeup is seen as a tool for hiding flaws—but that shouldn’t always be the case. Makeup is not a means to cover imperfections but a way to express what is truly inside. In the same vein, our skincare routine plays an important part in self-care in order for us to maintain a healthy relationship with ourselves.


Loving yourself harder through your skincare routine allows you to become comfortable in the skin you are in. Discovering your creativity through makeup also means revealing what makes you... you. And it is in loving ourselves and being able to express ourselves where we become empowered to Uncover True Beauty—a message BYS Philippines has conveyed steadfastly through the years.

In so doing, BYS Philippines is launching rising South Korean star, Hwang In-Youp, as the new face of the brand.

With his striking looks and edgy personality, Hwang In-Youp initially pursued modeling before making his acting debut with the lead role in the webdrama, “W.H.Y.” After which, he has appeared in a number of television dramas including “Freshman” (2019), “The Tale of Nokdu” (2019), and “18 Again” (2020).

He gained further recognition in “True Beauty” (2020), which is based on the Line Webtoon of the same title. The show features a young girl who uses makeup to express herself. Hwang In-Youp plays one of her love interests who sees and falls for the lead character despite the latter being ridiculed by their peers because of her use of makeup.

“This story is something that strikes a chord with our 2021 campaign, Uncover Beauty,” iFace General Manager, Angie Goyena reveals.


“And signing on Hwang In-Youp as our endorser is a statement about our stubborn assumptions concerning gender and beauty. This is an opportunity for us to smash stereotypes and shift away from standards, as well as be that voice to help shape the way we see beauty,” she adds.

With the launch of Hwang In-Youp also comes the introduction of Skin by BYS Minis. Merely months after Skin by BYS’ release, it has slowly strengthened its foothold in the local skincare scene and gained brand love and loyalty, thanks to its effectiveness and quality.
