K-drama Useless Lies Confirms Main Cast Trio of Kim So Hyun, Minhyun, and Seo Ji Hoon

Okay, this drama just got wayyyy interesting, though the execution could be wasted. The drama Useless Lies has confirmed the main three leads of Kim So Hyun, Minhyun, and also Seo Ji Hoon, the perpetual second male lead. I like him actually, he is solid onscreen but doesn’t sizzle in the way male leads need to be to get the upgrade. Kim So Hyun plays a woman who can see when people lie and finds her ability a curse. She gets involved with a man played by Minhyun accused of murder but claims he’s innocent. The interesting new detail involves Seo Ji Hoon who plays a cop and also Kim So Hyun’s ex-boyfriend. He was about to propose when he got diagnosed with cancer, so he leaves her with no explanation and returns three years later all cured but she’s got another man by his side. I’m guessing the man is the accused murderer, and him being a cop man this is one tense love triangle. Love this cast and super excited for this drama especially for Kim So Hyun, she rarely picks wrong.
