Lie To Me releases posters, new stills

Promo posters are out for Lie To Me, which are cute despite displaying a noted resemblance to the Sungkyunkwan Scandal poster. (Though, really, it’s hardly a novel concept anywhere.) But no matter, since Kang Ji-hwan and Yoon Eun-hye are both charismatic and easy on the eyes, with the added bonus of having a history of good chemistry with their partners.

The posters reflect the drama’s marriage motif, with both dressed in formal wedding duds. (I love Yoon’s flirty gown, which I suppose you could call her little white minidress. But I’m a fan of short wedding dresses in general, just as long as they’re not the type favored by the quickie weddings of all-night, Elvis-run chapels. Isn’t all that polyester a fire hazard?)

And while the fake marriage is a common trope in dramas, I have faith (or maybe it’s delusion-fueled hope) that this drama will handle it much better than, say, the sadly plotted Mary Stayed Out All Night (which failed not once, but twice with both fake marriages. Sigh. All right, let that one go now…). One added source of dramatic conflict in this drama is Kang Ji-hwan’s high profile as (sigh) a chaebol, and while I am fast tiring of the prevalence of the media-as-problem-causer and -solver setup, you can’t deny that in a celeb-, image-, and internet-obsessed society like Korea, it makes sense.

Below that, we have the latest stills showing Kang on the golf course, ’cause we know that in addition to foreign cars and American college degrees, nothing screams “Rich!” like a hero playing golf. (That makes me sorry that Birdie Buddy didn’t come on the scene with its poor golfer heroine, just for that.)

Below those stills, we see second leads Hong Soo-hyun and Ryu Seung-soo, a meddlesome pair complicating things for our main characters, who pose a constant threat to their fake marriage sham. To the outside world, these two appear to be enviably happy in marriage, but in truth they’re a contentious couple poised at the brink of divorce.

While I’m indifferent to Hong, I can see myself warming to her if she tackles her character with a fun sort of maliciousness — the love-to-hate-her kind that’s entertaining to watch. And it’s been a while since I’ve seen Ryu Seung-soo, but I loved him in the underrated gem of a mystery-treasure-hunt drama Mixed-up Investigative Agency, where he played a comic slacker character who showed occasionally heart-tugging flashes of depth.

Lie To Me will challenge Baby-Faced Beauty (though it premieres one week behind it) in the post-Midas time slot on Mondays and Tuesdays.

I'm not sure if its the picture, but all the stills they've released thus far of KJH makes him look like a chaebol vampire! He looks like he might have gained weight since CH, but still looking good as ever! Cannot wait!!!! `~

I think it's the too-white make-up. I love KJH (of course, not as much as javabeans), but his make-up and hairstyling in all the "Lie to Me" stills don't show his attractiveness properly.

I am really looking forward to this!

I have an extremely soft spot for vampire. So, don't really mind he's looking like one. (Is there any possibility for our cold, good looking chaebol to have a dark secret? Like he's really a vampire? Ahh, I guess I'm really into fantasy theme after Secret Garden and 49 Days, couldn't just get enough of it)

I've noticed some people commenting about his gaining some weight, some even call him fat. I really don't get it. How could he be considered fat? What kind of standard are we using now?

My, what a scary world. I might be called an elephant. I think this kind of standard that drives some celebs to look like they are on the brink of starvation.

The standard of slim is what I call cachexic.

He looks hot and the 3rd trailer...I squeal every time she calls him 'yobo.'

I am trying to squash down my expectations post M3 as well.Oh oh man it's so hard.They are so CUTE and I can see the chemistry already :-)

There is no way those pants (plaid or striped) are going to help anyone NOT look plump or at least like they're retaining 5 lbs of water.

They're giant arrows pointing at his (really) non-existant, but now over-emphasized, gut.

Pssht. I am already not happy with the stylists. Damn them! (shaking fist angrily in the air like an 80 year old man stuck in Miami rush hour traffic)

Speaking of those pants...they remind me of those ridiculous, but adorable outfits he wore in Capital Scandal.
Worked there, not sure about wearing it in this modern setting.

Maybe the stylist was jealous of his good locks? Otherwise, I can't explain some of the clothes they chose for him.

Oh my! Kang Ji-hwan and Yoon Eun-hye look fabulous! I couldn't really see what everyone was raving about but they look nice together in these.
I definately have to check this out, too, now.
Plus, Ryu Seung-soo! Man, I need to keep up with all these dramas about to air. I didn't know he was in this. He looks nice all spiffy in the last picture but I wish he'd be a silly character instead of the evil second. Oh well, at least he looks nice.

Yoon is so pretty. I have to admit that sometimes I don't like how her mouth is shaped (kind of protruding lips type thing going), but I'm never going to deny that she' pretty. She once said that if it weren't for her being a celebrity everyone would have thought she's just of average beauty/looks, and I can see where she's coming from. But add on the love we have for her as fans, and bang, she's always breathless, especially when she goes all out getting dressed up and what-not. That dress and hairbang/floral-hair-thingy is an awesome combo on her. Plus her cute and ever bubbly feel? Win.

Most of her dramas she wore long poofy things (ok, I'm only recollecting Take Care of My Lady/Lady Castle/Oh, My Lady where she had that trying on wedding clothes scene but where she also wore some of the most atrocious things I ever did lay my eyes on).

I like KJH but his hairstyle in this drama just doesn't suit him; i liked him with the style he wore in Save the Last Dance with Yoo Jin! However, I'm definit. watching this, they're both attractive what can i say?

Even when I see Kang Ji Hwan in such stereotypical attire of a chaebol, I can't help seeing the underlying quirkiness of his nature. Hopefully this drama will deliver a more interesting character dynamic than the multitude of conventional chaebols in kdramaland.

Oh those aweful golf pants, why oh why?!

I think KJH looks good, I haven't seen his previous work, but I'm not sure I like his voice from what I heard on the previews, but maybe it'll grow on me. I don't think he looks like a vampire, and I don't think he's fat. Most other male actors are too thin, so compared to them, he looks fat that's all.

YEY is very cute, I wouldn't call her pretty, but she has a lot of charm and that makes up for it. What's a pretty face if it's bland and void of emotion? Nothing. I think that YEY needs a new style though, I watched Personal Taste recently and YEY did a cameo and her hair style is the same.

Anyways, Lie to Me is on my must watch list! I can't wait. I hope not to be disappointed!

I think KJH looks pretty good too, especially when he smiles, but I've ALWAYS disliked his voice. Unfortunately, it still hasn't grown on me, but hoping that it will for you!

Thanks God that won't ever happen!

And YY, I notice that although you're fine with his voice you're not trying to stake any claim on him yet.

Hopefully you never will for Linda and I are on the stage of stocking our arsenals now. She said it's because we need something to fight over once we settle our dispute about Kang Ah's ownership.

It's not low and sometimes it sounds a little it squeaky, especially when you compare it to, say, JGS, LSG or TOP's voice. It doesn't bother me though

I don't mean to say his voice is bad at all. And of course there's nothing wrong with it.

It's just that for men, what I consider as a beautiful voice is one that sounds like Jang Geun Suk's (very deep and dark) that's all. I'll give JGS 10 for his voice, and 8 for KJW's.

8 for JGS's acting and 10 for KJW's.

Yoon Eun Hye carries a charming aurora and pleasant to the heart, in my opinion ;'>.

Probably I'll have to break my habit and watch these two dramas as they come out just base on posters alone~.

Agree about her wedding dress, adorable and energetic. Though I often wonder how can you play golf wearing a sunglass XD!

I've always been a huge fan of HONG SOO HYUN. A few years back, on loveletter, she was prettier than Kim Tae Hee
She has aged a bit (kth still looks the same) but I love her nonetheless. She's so adorable and shy <3333333

Kang Ji Hwan is fat??? Really? I don't see it.. He gained weight but I won't call him fat at this point.

And him looking like vampire? Lol might be true but I didn't mind. I have this on/off love for him.. Sometimes (looks wise) I think he is pretty good n then there are times when I'm not too fond of him..

Only, Im not sure which drama in this crazy period, dramabeans is going to recap.... I mean, it would be great if they could cover everything but that would be wishful thinking on my part, but they'd probably have to resign from their day job to do this.

So does anybody know which drama they're going to recap? :D
