I’m thisclose to losing all ability for rational thought, which would lead to an inability to write a coherent sentence. But I can care less, because I want moar moar moar Kang Ji Hwan in snappy perfectly tailored suits, please. Lie to Me released additional stills of its leading lady Yoon Eun Hye as well as her co-star Kang Ji Hwan, and the juxtaposition of his urbane, sophisticated, and likely haughty hotel president against her sloppy, frazzled, and likely loud-mouthed 5th level civil servant is hilarious to behold. I love it when sparks fly between two diametrically opposite people – before they fall in love, of course.
Kang Ji Hwan always plays eclectic characters, and this is his first time playing a full-blown chaebol. I know he can do full-of-himself in a winning way, as evidenced by his movie star character in Rough Cut, his doctor character in Be Strong, Geum Soon, and his writer character in Coffee House. But I’m dying to see him play a super rich bastard alongside Yoon Eun Hye’s everygirl. Just look at her sneaky impish look below, and tell me the sparks won’t be insane between them?
