Last week I bought DVD of Lie to me. It is a South Korean romantic, comedy drama starring Yoon Eun-hye and Kang-Ji-hwan. This is not new because it was aired last year in South Korea and I think it has been tagalized on GMA 7 (not sure though). Back to the DVD, the one I bought isn’t original. I know it’s not right to buy or support pirated CD or DVD. But I’m just being practical =). For the price of Php 35, I can now enjoy watching this hit Korean series. The price is very reasonable and the quality of the DVD is good just like I’m watching the original copy. The only problem is my TV because it’s acting weird lately. Most of the time it’s only black and white (just like watching the old-time). And there are times it has color but only red and blue. Well, it doesn’t matter as long as the quality is good. Forget about the color of my television, hahah.
Lie to me has 16 episodes. I already watched 9 episodes and still 7 more episode to finish. 8 or 9 episode made me cry earlier. I’m so excited what will happen to Yoon Eun-hye and Kang-Ji-hwan. Will they continue lying or acting like they were married?
The series revolves around a civil servant named Gong Ah-jung (played by Yoon) who pretends to be the wife of the wealthy hotel heir, Hyun Ki-joon (played by Kang) in order to impress her former friend. Gong Ah-jung (Yoon Eun-hye) is a fifth-level government employee of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. At the beginning of the series, Ah-jung lies to an antagonistic friend about being married as a form of revenge. The lie quickly snowballs (due to several misunderstandings) until Ah-jung realizes that everyone is gossiping about her supposed, secret marriage to Hyun Ki-joon (Kang Ji-hwan), the very wealthy president of World Hotel. As the rumor spreads, a miserable Ki-joon is forced to combat the rumors to his friends as he decides a plan of action in getting Ah-jung to correct her lie. Ki-joon and Ah-jung decide to take action to squash the rumors, with Ah-jung agreeing to call together her friends so she can confess her discretion. When this doesn’t go as planned, Ki-joon decides to take legal action against Ah-jung. However, after a series of events that bond the pair together, they both agree that pretending to be married for a short while would be mutually beneficial though Ki-joon promises that Ah-jung’s lie is not forgiven and that he will eventually go ahead and follow through with his lawsuit. Things become even more complicated when Ki-joon’s ex-fiance, and a close friend of his brother Oh Yoon-joo, returns from France. After a friend of Ah-jung sees Ki-joon and Yoon-joo togeher and raises suspicious of infidelity to Ah-jung (and leaves Ah-jung embarrassed), Ah-jung forces Ki-joon to promise that he will not be caught with any women for the duration of their sham marriage. Ki-joon and Ah-jung grow closer and more fond of one another over the duration of their marriage and Ki-joon finds himself questioning his commitment to his former fiance Yoon-joo. Eventually, however, Ki-joon makes the decision to be with Ah-jung despite the heartache he is sure to cause his ex lover.
