The mood certainly looks ready for romance in the first stills from upcoming music drama The Liar and His Lover (She Fell in Love with His Lies), based on the popular shoujo manga of the same name. The lighting director must be commended for the exquisite blue and warm wheat in the background of the first meeting of the leads played by Joy and Lee Hyun Woo. She’s the high schooler aspiring singer and he’s the prickly producer seeking musical purity over fame, and theirs is a romance based on lies but also on the meeting on musical soulmates. Whether first time at acting idol Joy is a natural is yet to be seen but she’s a natural in front of the camera in the way she radiates warmth from the image. The pretty is starting to increase my interest in this drama which premieres in late March taking over the Mon-Tues time slot from Introverted Boss.
