Earlier this week I brought the first official stills of Yoon Eun Hye in Lie to Me, yet it somehow felt incomplete. That’s because without her co-star Kang Ji Hwan to complete the tableau, Lie to Me just feels like a three-legged chair. I was worried the drama would keep him under wraps until its premiere, but thankfully the production has a functioning brain because today it released the first two official stills of Kang Ji Hwan’s chaebol hotel president character in Lie to Me. Me <—————*jaw drop* He looks soooooo fine I need my own bucket. I love his high-maintenance hair, so don’t judge me, it looks great on him, along with his awesome tailored suits.
The start date of Lie to Me may be pushed back, because Kim Hee Ae, one of the leads of Midas (the drama proceeding Lie to Me) just lost her father-in-law in real life and is currently in mourning services and unable to film for Midas. Word is that Midas may preempt an episode or two due to this unexpected passing, or maybe not, and just write her character off for a few episodes overseas. As for Lie to Me, this drama really reminds me of a K-drama version of Sunny Happiness with some details changed here and there. I do not doubt Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Hwan will have melt-the-screen chemistry, and I only hope there is enough substantive story to sustain this magical pairing.
