Lie To Me Review

Title: Try Lying To Me
AKA: Lie To Me
Previously known as: Sweet Scandal
Genre: Romance, comedy
Episodes: 16
Broadcast period: 2011-May to 2011-Jun
Cast: Yoon Eun Hye, Kang Ji Hwan, Sung Joon and Jo Yoon Hee.

What was supposed to be a little white lie, ended up as a huge scandal. Gong Ah Jung (Yoon Eun Hye) was betrayed by one of her friends, Yoo So Ran, by getting her first love taken, and for the past three years she has been tortured with patronization.
When she one day is ’fired’ from her job, she goes to a nightclub, gets wasted and meets Hyun Sang Hee (Sung Joon) who finds an interests in her. Shortly after Hyun Ki Joon (Kang Ji Hwan), a Hotel Chaebol (successor) and the big brother of Sang Hee, enters the nightclub, making Sang Hee run for I, which ends with Ki Joon having to take Ah Jung to the hospital
After the eventful night, Ah Jung, with a hangover, goes to the hairdressers and happens to meet Yoo So Ran, and in order to shut her up she says she is married, but not to whom.
Ah Jung decides to pay back the money Ki Joon used in the hospital on her, so she goes to the hotel where Ki Joon is the Chief, only to set the ’marriage-lie’ in motion. Now everyone thinks Ah Jung and Ki Joon got married in secret…

This is the first time I’m left without words for a drama. It’s not bad, nothing like that, but somehow just ‘like that’. Lol, doesn’t make sense… Anyhow, if you want a decent love story, loads of laughs and an amazing actor + actress, this is it. Even though I’m a Yoon Eun Hye fan, I have to admit the star of the drama most defiantly was Kang Ji Hwan. I’ve never seen him act before, well I don’t think I have, but damn he’s a superb actor, already googling his dramas.
The drama as a whole a bit disappointing, but the main actors make it all worth it. And if these two can’t get the ratings up, they should at least date. They make a great couple! Chemistry kaboom!
