It’s about a love between genius songwriter, Kang Han Gyul, who keeps his talent a secret, and Yoon So Lim who’s outspoken with a sweet voice who falls for Han Gyul at first sight.
Hyun Woo, who most well known as the young hacker from the Korean film ‘The Technicians‘ where he played a big role alongside Kim Woo Bin, stated:
“I was excited about meeting the charismatic character of Kang Han Gyul. Even the times where I worried about how to portray him were enjoyable. It’s been a long time since I’ve greeted the viewers, so I’ll work hard to present a good [drama].”
‘She Loves Lies’ is being produced by Bon Factory who’s previous credits include: ‘She Was Pretty‘ and ‘Master’s Son‘. The director is Kim Ji Min known for ‘Pride and Prejudice‘ as well as ‘Time Between Dog and Wolf‘.
