Japan DVD Release of Lie to Me Provides Sweet New BTS Videos of Kang Ji Hwan and Yoon Eun Hye

This post is really intended for folks who (1) loved Lie to Me (and likely watched alongside me during what was the craziest days ever here at the Playground) and/or (2) are HwanHye shippers. Chingus, I am here to announced that, courtesy of @HallyuYoonEunHye and the never before seen BTS videos of the filming of LTM, we can all relive the magical heady chemistry of Kang Ji Hwan and Yoon Eun Hye‘s first onscreen coupling. I watched the newest BTS videos below and immediately burst in shrieks of happiness, instantly transporting myself back to June 2011 when I was knee deep in LTM mania. For a drama with a story as silly as this one, I was nevertheless happily swept up into the tidal wave of romantic discovery between the two leads.

Looking back, I wish this was some weird Lars Von Trier deconstructed drama where the entire story consisted of the two leads without any side characters. That would leave the audience looking for an overarching substantive plot to not feel cheated of one, and allow those who loved it to feast on the very thing that sucked us in – the undeniable attraction between Hyun Ki Joon and Gong Ah Jung. Neither Ji Hwan nor Eun Hye have done another drama since LTM wrapped last year, and they are amazing actors who have great chemistry with almost all of their co-stars so I’m looking forward to their next small screen project. In the meantime, the drama gods must have pitied my poor shippy heart and given me (however late) more evidence that my amazing OTP really were more than just falling for each other onscreen. Better late than never, and I’m always game for more HwanHye goodness in any form.

All videos courtesy ofΒ @HallyuYoonEunHye.

Saying goodbye after completion of filming:

I…..I…..I just can’t even. A person must be blind not to clearly see that there is something more going on. When Eun Hye is filming, Ji Hwan just sits there and watches her. When they hugged, it was a chest-to-chest embrace as opposed to the professional hugs where there is some minute distance between the torsos. They even did the swinging hand holding and slow hand release! Like their characters did in episode 13!!! I swear when I watched that part of me was screaming “they totally ad-libbed the gestures that went into that reluctant parting at the airport”, and lo and behold, I feel validated. Everything about them scream together. Sigh, still so happy. If you watch the latter part of this video, where they are saying goodbye outside the airport, it’s even more telling the way she runs to him, how he almost grabs her hand before they appear to realize they are being filmed and Eun Hye darts forward to hug someone else, and the myriad back pats and more back pats between them.

BTS of the hug scene in episode 12:

Still one of the best hugs I’ve ever seen onscreen between a couple. Even watching the BTS brings back all the fond memories. *wipes away tears*

  1. I totally agree with you. It was equally a crazy time for e. i was so invested in them as a real couple and am still hoping that will come true! I replay their moments together.

    • Awww…they can’t stop holding hands…so sweet. feels like they just do not want to let go their hands. its like Hug, then shake hand, swing theirs hands together, then hug again…aww… definitely something on…

  2. Yay!! This post made my day! On the first video, KJH just can’t take his eyes and hands off YEH. I have the feeling that YEH purposely grab the other lady’s hand and shake it just like the way she and KJH does it because there are many people around them.
    HwanHye shippers do we need more evidence? We all believe action speaks louder than words, right? HwanHye fighting! πŸ™‚

    • and when i watched the first video i caught something like an “eye conversation” coupled with a few slight nods when they were still inside the airport..hmm is it only because i am a hwanhye shipper or what, but I sense that they are having another “you-know-already-what-I-mean” gestures there..geeshhh this post is driving me insane again just like the old LTM days πŸ˜€

  3. In the first video where they are saying goodbye, the girl in the background who was just there staring had me cracking up. Her expression was priceless especially when she quickly looks away.

  4. thank you so much mrs. koala for sharing newest news about Our beloved LTM OTP ^^
    even LTM story was meh, but acting and chemistry of our OTP was superb!!! ^^
    hoping there will be suprise announcement from both of them at end of this year or next year maybe…?!
    fingers crossed.. always!

  5. thank you madam K for these awesome vids…am also crying like crazy…all the memories kept coming back…and I felt validated as well…yes its true…something was really cooking…and I hope it’s still going strong cos am not ready yet to say that wuri ship has definitely sunk….For as long as both of them are single and not with anybody else then my shippy heart will still be fluttering for them and whenever I miss KJ and AJ, a rewatch is definitely in order!!!! Komawo chingu for giving us these awesome goodies!!!!

  6. I guess all of us love this OTP ,their chemistry is very strong.Thanks for this posting it brought me back last summer which I missed because recent dramas doesn’t bring the playful and light atmosphere like ‘Lie To Me’.

  7. The first video is very telling. The crew is looking very glad, and everyone is congratulating and saying their symbolic goodbyes. There seems to be none of that between YEH and KJH. In the shots inside they are wooden and exaggerated in their movements, nothing like the way they act with others before and after. They also share a bemused expression, KJH’s face especially seems to express the absurdity of it, as if they don’t quite know how to act out the ending.

    Outside things become very different. They seem comfortable, playful even. They touch casually and smile genuinely for each other. It shows that the way they act inside is not because they are uncomfortable with each other. The BTS videos show time and again YEH always becomes more reserved around KJH when she knows cameras are around and KJH has a much harder time not showing his affection.

    Its obvious from the latest videos and the after party that by the end of filming they were having a hard time staying convincingly under wraps. That is to say, nobody who saw them together was fooled.

  8. Man, it brings back insane memories of defending this drama. πŸ™‚
    Yup, I don’t normally ship but don’t you all thing these 2 co-stars are
    ” just ” a little too comfortable with each other? * wink, wink *

  9. What is this latest news i stumbled on about eun jye directing a short film? That must have been what was occupying her since this LTM drama.

    • She’s also pursuing her MFA in Film w/ a concentration being Film Production.

      These two deffo sizzled on-screen! These BTS vids are gold. πŸ™‚

  10. Hi Captain,

    Really happy to see this again… it has been years since Lie to ME aired.
    And in this site we all shared our wishes for our couple.

    Hope that we get update again Captain!

  11. Love it, love it, love it! Simply love it! Like all of you, I just can’t wait to hear the announcement that they are an item. They have a very special place in my heart πŸ™‚

  12. By gaw! They just couldn’t let go of each other, goodness gracious. Now I’m all happy and giddy again aha ha ha! Thanks for these ockoala unnie! In the hugging scene, I don’t know if they’re just good actors but boy, I could really feel their affection for each other – just so sweet and tender and…real. Gosh, are these two really dating? I hope they do, and if so, they are just so discreet (read: not caught actually dating) but these videos, well, its just so in our faces: skinship galore, hee, and notice how they look at each other. They look just like, well, people who’re just so madly in love. I’m all so goshing again.

    I wonder why there aren’t any practicing clips for the cola and ice cream kiss scenes. Well, maybe there’s no practice? I so miss them together…Well, yeah LTM was no masterpiece, that’s for sure – I didn’t get the plot and the characters per se but the love between Ki Joon and Ah Jung I bought, hook, line and sinker. Why? HwanHye. HwanHye’s execution was just so real that you just know that it couldn’t possibly be unreal. That’s what made it so engaging and extremely enjoyable to watch.

  13. Oh the hit of crack that started it all. Gosh, I can’t believe it’s already been a year since the mania. Oh Lie To Me, you will always always have a special place in my heart. LTM, you are the reason why I became a true addict and fell in love with your blogspot, Auntie K.

    I am in full support of Kang Ji Hwan and Yoon Eun Hye becoming a real couple and making koala inspired little ones.

    Oh please oh please let the rumors be true, please ^.^

    Cya mates

  14. Awww, I want to turn the time back to spring 2011 when we were all falling rapidly and madly in love together with these wonderful actors cum couple(?). Now I want to walk down the memory lane recalling all those amazing time, sitting on that memorable bench underneath blooming cherry blossom, then… fall in love all over again… Duh! My very fragile heart is skipping beats now, only by remembering..

  15. Capt k… Thanks for this. I loved this OTP and have lots of fond memories of the madness that surrounded that show. I don’t think I have ever been as into any drama as I was for ltm. I haven’t been able to rewatch it but I think it’s because I pretty much have the scenes memorized

    They are really cute together although I remain in my pessimist state about them in RL. I will believe it if they announce it. πŸ™‚ I just want them both to be happy in life.

  16. Wahhhh!! Thanks, Ms. K. Its been a long time, feel so strange posting something again, but HwanHye brought back my mojo in Kdramas..Firsts video, hands up, KJH could not let go of YEH.
    Pei, I see you are lurking around the playground. did you finish Ryan?

  17. G’day to y’all mates! Been a long time!

    And THIS brought it all back! The craziness, the mania! Yes, Captain, like, you, I was speechlesss when I watched that first video, well, of course, aside from the manic laughter, squeaky, gagging noises I was emitting from my mouth!! Made me all giddy and spazzy all over again, reliving last year. Kang Ji Hwan, what the *)*&(*&ck are you doing, or rather NOT doing? Gaaahhhh, they soooo obviously like/love/adore/attracted to each other so why, oh why do they tease us and not date, or get married and have kids, or at the very least elope!!! geeezzzz…

    • Heh, by the by, totally forgot to thank ockoala. Captain, my captain, a humongous thank you for feeding us crack once more. You know how thirsty your troops are, and always looking up to you to throw us some juicy morsels. You are still the BEST!!

      Sailors!!!! group hug!!!!

  18. Yay! is this some sort of a homecoming captain?

    Reading this post really wiped out all the stress from work today. These videos made my heart patter and somersaulted like it did a year ago. I just love our amazing OTP! πŸ˜‰ Wish we could see them in a project again soon.

  19. Omo, be still my giddy, shippy heart.

    Kamsahamnida, Capt. K, for these wonderful HwanHye boosters that will surely keep my shippy heart happy and healthy as it waits for the big day. These BTS vids strengthen my belief that the HwanHye ship is not just afloat, it’s sailing mighty well.

    But are there no BTS vids of that saucy bed scene in Ep. 16? Gaaaah, I wanna see what went on between those two after the screen turned black, with Ji Hwan still laughing and screaming “andwe”. And is there no chance for us HwanHye shippers to see the complete footage of the cliff kiss? Please, please, drama gods, let there be a more extensive Director’s Cut!

  20. Thanks ockoala for posting my videos in here.
    There’s more in the DVD, I will slowly upload them little by little. There’s also an unaired footage of a drunk Ah Jung getting carried by Ki Joon out of the taxi to his house.
    The good part about that video is even after the cut, Kang Ji Hwan still carried YEH on his back, instead of making her walk back to the taxi (cause they had to redo the scene.

  21. Awww. So sweet. Thank you Mrs Koala.

    They really could not let go of each other physically speaking. They were not the least sad to say good bye which is telling as well. There is no need for an official statement now with these BTS and we should/did respect their privacy. I am just glad that these two did take a chance at love together, regardless of whether they still are an item now.

    And wow Kang Ji Hwan is much taller than I though he’d be considering the companies’ usual lies about height (with shoe pads), age, weight, relatives.

  22. Has there been a more romantic/hot rom-com since this!!?? πŸ™ Can there be one that will beat this?! It was awesome while lasted.

  23. Yoon Eun Hye & Kang Ji Hwan-Lie To Me (Carrying A Drunk Ah-jung) UNAIRED
    The good part about this video is even after the cut, Kang Ji Hwan still carried YEH on his back, instead of making her walk back to the taxi by herself when they had to redo the scene. It shows how much he cared about her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3Wb4ySy0Ok

    Yoon Eun Hye & Kang Ji Hwan-Lie To Me (Media Day & Picture Event) *CLEAR vers*. This one is so sweet I suspect it will make you shriek. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFkLBRR7SEQ

    • Mi gahhdddd! Thanks so much hallyuyooneunhye for the media day and picture event vid… IDK why suddenly i got goosebumps all over when i saw the vid..miss them soo much.

  24. we hope that couple visit here in the philippines plssssss… cant wait actually i miis the. i want a movie again with kang ji hwan and yoon uen hye

  25. Koala, this is HwanHye heaven! That 1st video sealed the deal for me -their romance went from reel to real. THANK YOU so much for this post. πŸ˜€

    Their BTS hug scene makes me want to relive all their moments. Now you’re gonna make me start the LTM craziness all over again…… not that it a bad thing. πŸ˜‰

  26. Oh, I’m going crazy today,,,, looking back kjh and yhe soon made ​​me fly back. Always hoping that they have a special relationship.

    Hmmm,,, does anyone have video hot kissing scene on the cliff jeju???? I am crazy about crazy with that scene. hehehehe

  27. I squealed, I SCREAMED! Oh this is just too good. They so didn’t let go, and clever YEH grabbed her friends hand as she was holding Ji Hwans hand. Did you guy see how he was ogling her, total focus, when she was filming. That was hot. My fave part though, is when she ran to him outside and they started walking off, he was going to hold her hand before they got interrupted by the guy Kang Ji Hwan hugged. It was so adorb, but of course YEH pulled away.

  28. Oh I came in late. Wow! Wahhh! These made my week! Thank you very much Captain and HallyuYoonEunHye. I loved the farewell portion the best…they just hugged and hugged…so adorbs. Again Thanks!

  29. Thanks for this, it really made my day. I can never get enough of them together. Hopefully they both can be casted together again πŸ™‚

  30. Wow!Thanks to you Capt’n & thanks to Hallyu Yoon Eun Hye for posting these materials. They are so precious for us fans of HwanHye. I have observed all the things that had to be seen from these two lovers,(well, for me, they already are)this really speaks volume. Just pray for them not to be snatched by other interested men for Hye, & women for Hwan. Let’s hope for the best for them…more power guys!

  31. a very happy hwanhye shipper here saying thank you Captain and hugs to all the shippers in the playground!

    this video will forever allow me to wait for the day when hwanhye announces their love for each other in real life πŸ™‚

    hwanhye fighting!!! πŸ˜‰

  32. OMG I’m just watching again this series with my mom <33 thank you for posting these videos!! Lie To Me is indeed a beautiful drama, I can always go back and enjoy it just like the first time I watched it <3

  33. I liked Yoon with Hwan, but liked her the most with Joo Ji Hoon, they have a tremendous chemistry together, he is also a talented actor. I guess he messed up earlier in his career, but which one of us hasn’t messed up, a wee bit our selves. I wish Yoon would do another drama with him. They both are sexy, funny and talented…hope they work together again.

  34. I have re-read everyone comments and looked at the clips, again, and I have to be honest I don’t see the love connection, there, between the two of them. I do believe they make a cute looking couple and both seem dedicated to their profession, I love to watch two actors take their careers in a positive hard working attitude. If it is mean’t to be it is mean’t to be, I only hope they don’t get married but become a couple, that darn piece of paper does a lot of couples in, living up to all that marriage hype is hard on couple’s relationships….especially couples who are well known actors.

  35. @roxyalso, yes, I agree that JJH & YEH have chemistry, and they maybe once in way way back have been lovers, that’s according to what i read about them. But please, that was history, what matters now to us HWANHYE fanatics are these 2 sizzling lovey dovey. Learn how to read body language, or maybe u know but u want to ignore it. What happened in wrap up party? Their actions speak louder. Notice when yeh holds the hand of ryu & urged him to get closer, ji hwan pretended to look at the cake, but actually he’s looking at them from the corner of his eyes. Hmmm, jealous? Please roxy dear, don’t kill our joy.

  36. @roxyalso, I forgot to add, yes JJH is a talented actor, but very slow in memorizing his lines…unlike ji hwan, just read it once, maybe twice, and then, there they go,roll cameras.

  37. @roxyalso no offense, but if you wanna ship JJH and YEH so badly find another place to do it. I dont think it’s right that you ruin other people’s fun by doing it here. This is obviously about Kang Ji hwan and Yoon Eun Hye not an endorsement or clarification thread for Joo Ji Hoon. We dont have to like him or forgive him about his past because we dont follow him period so he can do whatever he wants, no one here really cares.

    @chichamiming Yoon Eun Hye and joo ji Hoon were never lovers. Dont believe everything you read from people shipping them.

  38. @kaye, I just read this today, busy somewhere, where the news about our HwanHye are juicier. Thanks for telling me that JJH & wuri YEH have no special feelings with each other, cause Yeh don not deserve him. Sorry, but that’s how I see it.

  39. @kaye, I mean to say, Yeh doesn’t deserve JJH, because I can’t see him as a responsible person. I maybe wrong i know, but that’s how i see it judging from his past… unlike our Ji hwan who is more mature,more dedicated to his work & determined to pursue his career. Well, he could be a good family man too. Am i right?…Therefore, for those who love this couple, FIGHTING!

  40. I really love your commentaries! I feel like you said exactly what I wanted to say. I love them both so much. I really wish that they would be together for real. Thank you for sharing. This really made my day.

  41. Hi, congratz to LTM..simple yet entertaining & funny love story…great chemistry & acting of KJH&YEH almost like for real…every scene & dialogue has a strong message anyone could relate to…two thumbs up!
    Wish for a sequel which tackles ’bout love, marriage & family values but still with romantic comedy on it which we all loved..

    HWANHYE are both such an amazing & brilliant actors oozing with charm & personality..hope something good (fate) might happen in the near future as you both deserve to be happy.. as i believe in match made in heaven..keep the faith ^^

  42. I forward Lie To Me part 2….I love KJH.YEH so much…perfect couple..I think they’re real couple…I wish that β™₯β™₯β™₯

  43. The only thing I wanna say is on the first clip when YEH ran into KJH, they have to be dating in real life in order for my oppa to grab a hold of YEH’s hand. Everyone see that right?? i mean u gotta be blind not to see this part and just this move is end of the line …. we just need to sit and wait for the good news πŸ™‚ Btw, did u guys read the news about both of them getting sick on the same or next day a week ago?? And also KJH was caught on pictures he is wearing the same e+e bracelete YEH has?

    • I do hope they are really together! They are just being secretive about it. Apple, I think you are onto something with these two. I am not going to lose hope! Hwan hye fighting!

      • Elieen …. let’s pray for the final good news in the coming 1 or 2 yrs hopefully !! Fighting!!

  44. For those who have not got enough of Hwan-Hye, I came across these brilliant put-together clips. Enjoy!

  45. welcome, costa breve bcn! the hwan-hye shippers are usually hanging out here in koala’s playground at the Discussion Forum: HwanHye HSI-team. hope to see you there! Hwan-Hye shippers are still kicking. hehehe!

  46. Thanks so much for this post. In the practice for the Ice Cream scene, I really loved YEH’s reaction to singing the μ‚¬λž‘μ˜ μž…λ§žμΆ€ν•˜μ£  line – so natural and cute, and visible to a lesser degree the first time she sung it in the BTS of the studio recording.
