Drama Recaps
Lie To Me: Episode 11 Open Thread
by | June 13, 2011 | 243 Comments

Greetings once again from the North Pole! The girls forwarded all your requests for me to make another guest appearance, so here I am, back by popular demand (well, that and a barrel of rye, but if my Tax Elf asks, that was just a “gift”).

Gosh, I haven’t recapped since my episode of Bad Guy. Hope my sharp skills of deduction haven’t gotten rusty. I sure loved bragging to all the elves about all the fan mail I got. They’re way better than the usual Dear Santa fare. Some of them even had curse words! Ho ho ho!

Also, I’d like to personally thank those of you who gave me legal advice on the reindeer union strike of 2010. We finally reached a settlement, and though I mostly had to employ the people at FedEx to get presents delivered, I finally finished by Memorial Day. If you still haven’t gotten your present, either (1) the incompetent, sorry excuse for reindeer at FedEx lost your package; or (2) you’re naughty.

You know which one you are.


Ah-jung tells the Big Wigs that they’re married.

Ki-joon tells them that they’re not.

Get your story straight, people.

Ki-joon tears up the contract and yells that they’re starting over, no lies this time.

Yeah, this would’ve been awesome had it come six episodes ago.

So-ran scares Jae-bum into thinking she’s going to off herself.

She’s really hiding away in Jeju, and Ah-jung conveniently has to go there for work.

Ki-joon follows her there, deigning to go by boat rather than private helicopter.

He basically does her job for her, since he’s a VVVVVVIP and she is not.

So-ran pretends to die, because that’s apparently acceptable behavior for a grown woman.

Ah-jung saves her hide by making a really really long metaphor about how Jeju is Mom, because of abalone, and I don’t see how this is going to work, but somehow it does, because Ki-joon miraculously translates her extended metaphor into three languages at the same time, and everyone has a mother but her. Or something.

They celebrate with an awkwardly lavish dinner, and then finally apologize and confess their Twu Wuv.

They kiss and Ki-joon promises to take it slow and only look at her.

Then the girl who doesn’t take a hint sees it all. Well, that takes care of that, eh?

    I love you Santa.

    • 1.1 Santa Claus

      Sucking up now does not retroactively bring you presents.

      Naughty is naughty.

      • 1.1.1 javabeans


        • gailT

          OMG. Too funny.

          • omo_omo

            This is my first time reading your weecap Santa (as I wasn’t into Bad Guy yet). Anyhow, 4 words.
            You. Are. Hilariously. Genius.

            Thanks and I look forward to your other recaps/weecaps. Now I should check out that Bad guy recap. *start searching DB* o_O

        • Beng

          yeah, you’re both funny =). I love the emoticon =)

      • 1.1.2 Ace

        Ooooh! Santa! You should’ve done some weecap on MSOAN too coz that was also one WTH show…

    • 1.2 snow

      me too. so if santa does a weecap, is this called a “wee santa cap” or “santa weecap” or “sancap”? XD

      • 1.2.1 Niema

        I think of an alcoholic drink when ‘wee santa cap’ is said. Something with a candycane as a garnish. …. *runs off to mix drinks*

        Thanks Santa.

        • Twitiepie

          Wee Santa Cap to me is : ‘Putting a cap/limit on how much Santa can pee’…..or ‘the little cap/hat that Santa wears’.

      • 1.2.2 hookedonmonix

        could it be an elf cap, since a santa cap would be quite robust?

    • 1.3 joeydragonlady

      I love you too Santa…seriously that what want the episode was about…I keep hoping there would be more making out in this ep coz I can’t really count on the story.

  2. riceballer

    Santa is backkkk! Thanks for the weecap =)

  3. riceballer

    Santa is backkkk! Thanks for the weecap =)

  4. Nik

    Great cap! Thank you!

  5. Trice

    This weecap is made of win! XD

  6. rita

    looooove you Santa!!!! sweet, short and to the point!!!!! please some one get “the Girl” some psychiatric help…….she has way tooo many issues to be involved with anyone.

  7. mskololia


    “So-ran pretends to die, because that’s apparently acceptable behavior for a grown woman.”

    You are too funny.

    • 7.1 Jomo

      Also my favorite line!
      Can we isolate and vote on best lines?
      There was one in My Princess several Hand Towels back about Yoon Ju bot and human feelings I particularly liked, too.
      Imma go find it…

      • 7.1.1 78446

        From Santa, circa Bad Guy, 2010 :

        Tae-sung’s hair gets insulted.

        Best. Line. Ever.

        • MJP

          Ba! Ha! Ha! Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

        • kd

          this is my favorite too! wahaha

      • 7.1.2 Okie Dokie

        Oh man, that’s seriously a great line! Santa’s giving Sue Sylvester a run for her one liners!

  8. HikkiZ

    Santa has come early this year. Not sure why he’s brought a Weecap with him but who’s complaining really :)

  9. Lorlena

    WOW Santa is doing recaps (again) 😀
    Are you now ours VVVVVVIP weecaper :)

  10. 10 aidablue

    wow! this was fast. Thank you Santa for the short info! can’t wait to get off work and see the episode

  11. 11 Taber

    Ki-joon tears up the contract and yells that they’re starting over, no lies this time.

    Yeah, this would’ve been awesome had it come six episodes ago.

    If this would have come six episode ago, it would be a good drama. I’m so tired of reading how long the lie lasted in “THIS” drama. It lasted about the same amount of time that all fake relationship base drama. Full house, My lovery Sam-soom, My girl and the list can go on forever. The drama is call Lie To Me, not make a whole another storyline out of me….Thanks for the recap nice and short..

  12. 12 Aphrodite

    So-ran pretends to die, because that’s apparently acceptable behavior for a grown woman.
    because Ki-joon miraculously translates her extended metaphor into three languages at the same time,

    Muawhahahaha! O Santa, you are hilarious!!!!!! I laughed hardly!
    Though, I adored the dinner.
    You forgot the Cola and tomato juice scene . This sexy bastard KJ!!!

    • 12.1 MJP

      Man… I gotta catch up and watch this episode!!!

  13. 13 miasc

    Thank u thank u n thank u very very much for the weecap. This drama makes my day so uplifting.

  14. 14 Cynthia

    Ahhh – this is a Win-Win recap!

    They say that one picture is worth a thousand words and less is better than more.

    Santa brought it home – a recap cut to the bone and just as tasty, although it didn’t help that at one point in the snark the Diet Coke I was swigging went down the wrong pipe due to the explosive laugh I had……..

    This is the kind of recap I’d like to see for those kdramas that aren’t QUITE making it (MANNY, I’m talking to you!).

    Thanks, Santa – I’ll take this recap with a big, red bow on it and call it even for a late (read: nonexistent) present!

    :) :)

    • 14.1 hookedonmonix

      Oh, Manny, Manny, Manny. If you were my child I would have left you in a gas station bathroom (and legitimately forgotten to pick you up later).

      • 14.1.1 Rayanne

        hahaha ! I squirted orange juice all over my beloved laptop’s screen after reading this! heeeeheeeeheeee

      • 14.1.2 MJP

        LOL!!! Poor Manny!

        Forget the storyline and gaze at the lips. According to my source: It’s all in Manny’s lips.

        • come2noona

          There’s a storyline?

          • hookedonmonix

            does it end with someone beating sense and maturity into every single character, then busting a chemistry set all over Manny and Ahjumma’s heads (since that’s the only way they’ll have any?) Because if not, I wasted the 10 hours I spend watching it before I finally gave up. Honestly, I didn’t totally hate it (except that spoiled brat of a daughter and whiny mother of hers), but it was just so colossally “meh” that I’m not even slightly curious how it ends- and I’m someone who reads the plot synopsis for an entire book series if I found the first book tolerable, but not worth continuing. I HAVE to know how things end. except Manny.

          • MJP

            I tried to find a great picture of Seo Ji-seok, but I guess he is not that popular…

            So I went for cute instead.


          • Ennayra


            lol. You got that right…

      • 14.1.3 MEK

        this comment made me laugh at work so hard that the ppl around me are wondering…is she nuts?!

  15. 15 Sunmi

    Hot damn. It’s Christmas in July…June. Close enough. Thanks for the weecap. I haven’t got my present yet Santa. Won Bin, armed with food and drink, has yet to arrive on my doorstep proclaiming his undying love and devotion to me. I’m 100% sure I was only half naughty this year. Just sayin’ is all.

  16. 16 Dear Santa,

    Are you girlfriday in disguise or am I just suspicious? Haa!

    • 16.1 dramabliss

      Had the same thought. Then, maybe, The Samsooki?

      Santa, awesome weecap. Keep ’em coming, please, please, for the next 5 eps? That would be enough for my present this year. I have been good and will be good, at least for the rest of the year.

      *puts hand behind back and crosses fingers*

      • 16.1.1 samsooki

        Alas, I don’t have the evil genius that is Santa Claus.

        Besides, I am on the side of all that is Good and/or Poor-To-Middle Class!

        Santa Claus clearly is a VVVVVVIP and far above my humble status.

        Santa Claus can go where mere mortals cannot. We would be asked to show our VVIP membership cards and I, uh, left mine at home…

    • 16.2 MJP

      I don’t think it’s GirlFriday. I suspect she is having a very hot date to night… With Gong Yoo!!!!!!!


      *Runs away screaming, crazy ramen hair flying*

  17. 17 stars4u

    I loved when Ki Joon started lip syncing to the song before getting on the boat! I almost fell off my seat!!!

    • 17.1 kdfan

      yeah .. totally cute. it’s just those little moments that’s keeping to show together and keeps me on it til it ends ..

  18. 18 Quarki

    Santa! When are you coming to town?

  19. 19 maricor102

    We wuv u, Santa!! thanks for the short but awesome recap! Greatest gift ever!! ^o^

  20. 20 turtlegirl

    Thank you so much for the weecap! I feel like this show just continues to disappoint me with all the fluff :(

  21. 21 B.Lara

    So, that is why I did not get what I asked for last December. Things will be even more delayed since Canada Post is on strike – there is no point in being nice anymore.

  22. 22 penne

    this is so painful to read..you’re hurting LTM followers..just stop it already..goodness!!

    • 22.1 penne

      no matter what, LTM’s thread still has the largest amount of replies…still number one!!!!!

    • 22.2 Aphrodite

      No! I am LTM follower, and i love that show, but I enjoy the hilarious weecaps!

    • 22.3 Okie Dokie

      Don’t worry penne. I love LTM to pieces and I read recaps elsewhere. But I also love JB, GF & now Santa’s witty remarks. It makes me laugh – try not to take it personal. We Liars do know that there’s a lot of love for the drama as well.

      • 22.3.1 hookedonmonix

        Yes, It is perfectly possible to love something and yet acknowledge its undesirability to others. I really enjoy Lie To Me, but seeing it mocked is still pretty fun.
        But, of course, fandom is a fierce thing (just try questioning anything about Twilight to its fanazis. *and I did like twilight, but even as a fan, trying to suggest Edward is controlling pretty much got me decapitated.)

        • Okie Dokie

          Dude, try telling people you didn’t like MNKSS that much. *ducks for cover*

          • Verònica

            Not to mention “Secret Garden”, I must have been cursed a gazillion times for saying that besides the soul changing scenes, I found almost everything else was a waste…

            *hides in a cave*

          • hookedonmonix

            I loved both, but I totally could make a list for each show of things that irritate me, so I get it. if we all agreed on everything, we’d be boring. Boring sheep.

      • 22.3.2 penne

        do we really need to be in depth with dramas all the time?…im really glad to have a light drama like this, it doesn’t hurt my heart and mind to reflect that much..thanks okie dokie..

    • 22.4 Amg1

      As Dramabeans official Yoon Eun Hye #1, all I can say is that I hate “Lie To Me,”!!!!!!!

      The most important aspect of a drama/movie has to do with the sense of “Logic.” and all I can say is that Lie To Me has everything that one can expect of an excellent drama except logic…AGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

      What in the hell (WTF) is the writer doing?

      1- Mother Jeju metaphor!!! Lame….

      2- Younger brother “Manic Depression,” Lame….

      3- Second lead female “Psycho Bitch,” Lame…

      4- Threesome translation… Lame…

      5- Male lead has been an absolute “Ass,” and now is prince charming….Lame…

      Man! I can go on and on about how idiotic this show has become, but I do not think its going to change the pace/story line at all….

      Do I still think that Yoon Eun Hye is the best Korean actress?
      Yes I do but I am heartbroken about LTM….. Another Mary Stay Out All Night in the making…….What a waste of talent!!!!

      • 22.4.1 Dux

        You spoke my mind, sadly

        • NN

          I agree, throughout this episode, I couldn’t suspend my disbelief and kept thinking to myself: “what a lame storyline, what a waste of the two talented leads!”

      • 22.4.2 bananamilk

        I agree that LTM’s plot is not that great but it cannot be compared with Mary… Mary was like a trainwreck! At least YEH and KJH’s chemistry is cute >_<

        • PJ

          MSOAN also had good chemistry
          if this drama was sans Yoon eun hye the ratings would be “heading to the ground”, on a mugyul bus, and any number of playful kisses wouldnt have helped.

          • DeeDee8906

            LOL “‘heading to the ground’, on a mugyul bus, and any number of playful kisses wouldnt have helped.'”
            That was a total WIN xD

          • kd

            ROFL! omg, you’re good 😀

          • houstontwin

            If you are just watching for the kisses, they’re great!

          • ocean

            Nice one PJ!

      • 22.4.3 Pat

        I love YEH. There is something compelling in her face . I guess the camera just loves her. I hope she never fixes her teeth to look like everyone else. If not for her I could not handle the
        99% cliche recycled “plot”if you could call it that.

      • 22.4.4 Okie Dokie

        Amg1 – I’m with you, this drama is totally a waste of YEH and KJH. I blame the writer. Although, I don’t know what explains my addiction to this drama. I guess it’s my love for YEH, my imagination for the KJH-YEH Couple that keeps me going full speed ahead. To me, YEH will always be all that and a bag of chips. Now with Cola on the side! =D

  23. 23 iurgnotmis

    do this more often please, Santa!

  24. 24 Bluefyre

    I’ve been laughing for 5 minutes!!!
    I love you Santa! 😀

    • 24.1 tari

      I spilled my morning coffee 😉
      Thanks for the laugh Santa.

  25. 25 Qd

    wow ! Thanks! I think LTM is perfect for weecaps! :)

  26. 26 supah

    Bwahahaha! <3
    Santa's snark. It hurts so good.

  27. 27 Saima

    Santa, will you reconsider with an “oppa!” *pout* *wiggle*?! lulz

    • 27.1 mandelbrotr

      SanTaaaaaaaaAaaaaaaa! opPaaaaaaAaaaa!

  28. 28 Hiromi

    Aw, Santa!! How I wait for your recaps… sadly Lie to Me keeps on disappoint me. I don’t know what did I expect from it but for some reason this isn’t it.

    • 28.1 Alexio

      The writernim is running out of idea. Hah! I have no idea why we watching it anymore

      • 28.1.1 HanKang4ever

        the writer had no idea to start with!!! hahahaha

        still love YEH….

  29. 29 Dux

    You are so awesome, Santa! I might even try to be not-so-naughty this year so that I can get on your list, assuming you deliver hot Korean actors on demand? At this point it’s more entertaining to read DB wecaps than to watch the drama itself.

    • 29.1 k8

      “At this point it’s more entertaining to read DB wecaps than to watch the drama itself.”

      – totally agree!

      Thank you, Santa!

      • 29.1.1 kdfan

        agree! and if we have each episode with just YEH & KJH scenes edited out, it would save us sitting through the hour or having to move the mouse forward!

  30. 30 splgt001

    Dear Santa:
    Thank you for my presents last Christmas. I guess I have been good since then as I got another present from you today.
    I love you 😀

  31. 31 Chocobo


    • 31.1 Bluefyre

      OMG…You just HAD to post of link of that!!! LMAO *dies*
      As if Santa’s weecap didn’t almost kill me already!


    • 31.2 mandelbrotr

      Perfect ref!

    • 31.3 MJP

      LOL! I LOVE that movie!!!

  32. 32 alove

    “Ah-jung saves her hide by making a really really long metaphor about how Jeju is Mom, because of abalone, and I don’t see how this is going to work, but somehow it does, because Ki-joon miraculously translates her extended metaphor into three languages at the same time, and everyone has a mother but her. Or something.”

    HILARIOUS! I was thinking very similar thoughts during this scene – especially with KiJoon being such a “spectacular” translator…

    • 32.1 Daniela

      It was funny to watch Ki-joon moving his lips but the only one you could hear was Ah-jung.
      And I think he only translated in Japanese, but everyone understood. So why did he translate in each other language before if everybody knows japanese?
      Why every time they speak English in a drama, they do it slowly?

      • 32.1.1 Cynthia

        And LOUD. You forgot to mention LOUD!

  33. 33 J

    Lie To Me is the one show in May that leaves me with a big smile on my face after watching it. Ahh the power of Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Hwan ^^ Today’s episode was uber cuteness! <3333 We finally got a great dose of uri OTP 😀

    • 33.1 Okie Dokie

      @ J – me too. I totally grin like a dork when I see anything KJH or YEH. They are too cute together. And with KJH’s adorkable side coming out more, it’s just getting better. The last dinner scene was so nice…minus the appearance of YJ. But hopefully she gets the hint.

  34. 34 Eleven11

    <3 Santa

  35. 35 crazedlu

    THIS. SHOW. IS. fonging dumb.

    cheers, santa. ^^

  36. 36 AuntieMame

    Here’s the real big question:

    Will Santy bring any presents this year to the characters in this drama or the people writing, directing, producing this drama?

    • 36.1 hookedonmonix

      Only to the person who said “Lets fill the plot void with lots of sexual tension, eh?”

  37. 37 Duffy

    Wow, what a short but sweet recap 😀 since it’s my first to read such from Santa…I welcome you Santa with all my <3!

  38. 38 Moozy

    Whooop to santa!!! Thanks for the wheeecap!

  39. 39 Lahlita

    Dear Santa Baby,

    I’ve missed you. Also, I’ve really been an awful naughty girl. I need to be punished. *sticks out tush*

    So hurry down my chimney tonight.

    In the meantime, can we count on you to recap the rest of this series! I love the way you Northerners write!

    • 39.1 MJP


      Wait… What just happened to my screen? Did it, yes it did, my screen just spontaneously combusted and is burning up!

      Lahlita, woooo!!!!!!!

      You are on fire! You are one HOT mama! I don’t think Santa can handle you!

      *Goes to look for fire extinguisher*

      Cool down.

      *Hoses Lahlita with fire extinguisher*

  40. 40 martha

    short but sweet.
    thank you santa, welcome back:)

  41. 41 ping

    can someone help me? who’s santa? a returning recapper for real?

    • 41.1 mskololia

      …don’t know, but my guess is “The” Samsooki. :)

      • 41.1.1 gingganggolli

        …wew! that’s what I’m thinking also. If not I wonder where’s Samsooki specially during the secret garden phenomena.

  42. 42 jacq

    This is plain AWESOME!!! So funny! I love it! Santa You ROCK!!!!!!

  43. 43 Daniela

    I like this episode mostly because we had the funny and nice Ki-joon. And Ki-joon and Hoon singing? I was in drama heaven. I laughed and laughed when he was offering beverages to her and when he was doing Lip-sync, and in the room when he got close to her in the window.
    The ending, well, it was cute. I think that for the ones that love this OTP it was THE BEST. Maybe. She has a nice dress and the other girl watching, again, It wont be useful, at all. She won’t get it yet.
    I thought that this was a funny episode until I arrived here and read Santa’s weecap. My stomach is hurting. I laughed out loud, but it was very very loud. I loved this weecap more than I love Hoon. Maybe its a tie.
    Santa, you are awesome. I didn’t get presents for you (that means I’m naughty?) but this weecap is a good late present.

  44. 44 Ani

    Gorrammit Santa! I thought because you would be too busy with the strike and being overly friendly with the bottle that you wouldn’t bother to check the list twice. Gah. My last minute act of naughtiness cost me my present. Well, good to see that you haven’t completely lost your marbles, I mean touch….. I guess. Welcome back.

    As for Lie To Me? I’m loving these weecaps because they make the series a bit more interesting than it probably really is. I wonder how they’re going to fill up the last remaining 5 episodes. Maybe jilted girl will pull a “Soran” on us. XD

    • 44.1 Santa Claus

      I outsource all that list-checking stuff now. Gotta get with the times. You can file a Missing Present Form MP-91847 with my I.T. department, if you really think you were miscategorized under Naughties.

      But I think we all know the folks ’round these parts are no angels. Word on the street.

      • 44.1.1 MJP

        I am definitely NOT an angel! :-)

      • 44.1.2 Ani

        But I think we all know the folks ’round these parts are no angels. Word on the street.

        Hear! Hear! There’s truth in them words and I’ll raise a glass to it. . . Oh crud, it’s the drinksies that causes all the mischief around here. Oh well, bottoms up. I swear this’ll be my last one until the holidays. ^_~

        P.S. Ah, unless certain circumstances like family gatherings, friend gatherings, celebrations, karaoke nights or bad days require me to partake in said ritual. XD

  45. 45 neeko

    this recap format is perfect for this drama. very fitting!

  46. 46 laya

    Wow Santa! Christmas sure came early! Thanks for the hilarious weecap… ILY!

    PS I know I’m really too old for gifts so I didn’t expect anything… but maybe this year— how about a hottie all wrapped up in silver paper and tied with a bow? XD

    • 46.1 Venus

      Laya, I second that motion, Santa can you signed me up for the Hottie list…. preferably LMHot….thanks!!

      • 46.1.1 laya

        Aigoo! I know I should’ve specified Lee Min-hot! Oh well. Santa, make mine Kim Nam-gil after you’ve gotten him safely back from the army! XDD

        • tari

          Dear Santa, Cha Seung-won for me please 😉

        • Venus

          Sorry Laya we need to be specific around this parts…specially Hotties… 😛

          • laya

            S’okay, LMH is always in my dreams anyway 😛 And for me there’s always KNG. <3

            This way I won't get into trouble again with girlfriday over Lee Seung-gi XDDD

            Merry Christmas early.

          • Santa Claus

            Sorry girls, Seung-gi is reserved for the next 87 christmases.

            If you’re wondering how girlfriday got on the Nice List, my Tax Elf and I know nothing. Clerical error. ‘Tis all. Nothin’ to see here. Move along.

        • laya

          @MJP: Whoa!!! Thanks!! That ranks right up there with the KNG-holding-a-baby pic! /saves to “hotties” screensaver folder/

          @Santa Claus: S’okay. Just reserve Kim Nam-gil for me for the next 87 Christmases and I’ll be happy. If not… *dials Abu Sayyaf hotline*

          • omo_omo

            ohhh laya do you know o_O? how many Christmases I need to wait for Lee Min Hot? or maybe there is another way?

    Any lucid or insane person can get the gist while watching the episode raw, This weecap mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    • 47.1 row

      that tells you something doesn’t it? The plot is that flimsy.

  48. 48 Pat

    ok – i really liked this ep cuz AJ and KJ are moving on with being a real couple! i don’t watch this kind of dramas with obvious story lines normally but for some reason i can’t stop watching it! i think i watch it for the main actors – theyre really cute together!

  49. 49 Venus

    SANTAAAAAAA!!!!!! welcome back!!!….u were missed since Bad Guy days….but thank you for showing up and giving us one of the best weecaps ever…. 😀 😀

    P.S Say Hi to Rudolph for me….

  50. 50 L.lee

    I’m bot buying the romance. I kind of feel sorry for the other girl. Romantic and all for the main couple but if this was real life and I was the-girl-that-can’t-take-the-hint, I’d be pretty choked. The guy romantically proposes to her ,then gives her up for his baby brother (Pretty immature thing to do ,unless it’s a Korean drama , if I may add.) . So ki hoon dramatically cries in the dark convincingly showing us his heart breaking into 10000000000 pieces through some mad acting skills. Then he continues to confuse us with what seemed to be lingering feelings inn ep1-4 as he starts to make VERY FEW memories with the leading actress. Ion how he even fell in love with her through his minimal screen time memories with her but I guess somehow they’re madly in love. ….yah… I’m not really buying the emotions of this drama ….. Is it just me?

    • 50.1 asianromance

      I’m glad that I’m not the only one feeling sorry for the other girl, especially with how KJ broke up with her all those years ago because lil bro couldn’t get what he wanted. For years, she must be going “ARE YOU FOR REAL?!!” every single day.

      And in the end, KJ lost SH anyways to SH’s wandering ways. They were in love enough to plan to get married. Being suddenly dropped like that probably even warped her a bit. If the actress was more charismatic and her parts better written, I could almost see such a character in such a situation as the heroine of another drama (with some adorable guy on the side weaning her off that guy who let her go).

      • 50.1.1 niKai

        Omg. I soooo feel for the girl. because i got dumped for a similar reason. “Are you for real?” was what’s going on in my head for days just because of the shock. In the end, I don’t even know if he really dumped me for that very reason, or he’s just using that other person as an excuse to get rid of me. It’s a bully!

  51. 51 Carinne

    Santa’s in the haus!!

    Wiiii~, oops… Weeee~

  52. 52 Noelle

    I’m loving this show. Even if its lacking I’m addicted to the cute.
    Love the weecap btw.

  53. 53 ck1Oz

    Oh Santa you’re the best :-)

    I think I laughed too much already.Ep 11 went from the cute to the hilariously sad because of your weecap.

    Love does not have to be logical.I accept that.I am not even talking about AJ/KJ. Hahaaa..

    I am talking about me and LTM.Bring it on ep 12…logical or not.It’s my cute :-)

  54. 54 Jomo


    There is so much love for you here. Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon.

  55. 55 simplyjude

    The part that I’m really confused about is the meeting when Kijoon is in Jejudo. I didn’t understand why the right hand wo-man would call a meeting and all the other guys in the room got upset after hearing something. Ah, whenever it’s not the cute stuff, I go to re-caps to understand.

    Someone please explain! I just want to know if it’s an important factor.

    Sidenote: I want to see a scene where Sanghee makes an enormous masterpiece! I think he was drawing Ahjung when Yoonjoo walked in. Eh.

  56. 56 mandelbrotr

    This reminds me of Anna Russell comically condensing the four Ring of the Nibelung operas by Wagner (which are a mythic and silly as any kdrama), a whopping 15 hours all-together, down to a 30 minute paraody.

    This is not for the faint of heart or ear. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypisVrbqDqE

  57. 57 yokee

    this is hilarious!
    i like the drama as it is packaged topped with both YEH and KJH.
    i also like all +ve and -ve vibes and comments about the whole product.

    dear santa,

    please accept my first greeting from the tropics. great to know you partnered with FedEx now cos chimney is a non existant design/structure in this part of the world.
    haha..good day!

  58. 58 78446

    Dear Santa,

    If we LTM OTers are extra nice today, will you consider recapping the last five episodes? Pretty, please?

    your biggest fan

    I’ll even offer legal services the next time your reindeers give you trouble. For free.

    • 58.1 danna

      oooh…does santa take bribes??

  59. 59 Celexa

    Santa! Thanks for the weecap and let me introduce myself. My name is Celexa. It’s just coincidental that I need some of that stuff to help with my drama addiction.

    Did anyone notice the look of “this is MY man you’re messing with” look on the soon to be EX?

    Can someone explain why Korea has VVIPs instead of just plain VIPs?

    Ohhh and who officially “hates” little brother now? He never grew up did he?

  60. 60 MJP

    Dear Santa:

    Thanks for lightening the mood up around here. I think it is exactly what the doctor ordered!!!

  61. 61 Viven

    I feel sorry for having voted in favor of this weecap. Looks like its all about LTM bashing, through sarcasm or sweet words.

    Anyway, I do enjoy the drama, its light and fun. But looks like I shall no longer visit this blog as it has indeed disappointed me for not taking an objective stance. Open thread seems to have done more damage than good. While I am all for voicing one’s opinions, but I would think one should stop watching if they don’t like it rather than watch every episode and keep critiquing it. Ranting against it every episode seems pointless.

    • 61.1 kd

      oh poor thing, i do understand but you can’t take things to heart. most of the people bashing this drama are just terribly disappointed with the writing. as for me, i read the weecaps here (because they’re fun) and at koala’s too (for the details and spazzing), watch a few kissy scenes, and i’m happy! haha you can still visit this blog, not just the LTM open thread if you feel too bad! hee

      • 61.1.1 Sethe

        I was going to say something similar. I’ve wondered why this drama, of all the dramas I’ve followed in my (admittedly short) kdrama career, is generating such vitriol and such impassioned responses. I agree that I think people maybe had really high expectations (especially based on the lead actors), and are just angry and disappointed that the drama’s not living up to what they hoped for.

        I had a (very cynical) friend who always used to say:

        Low expectations = the key to happiness.

        Following that philosophy, I’m enjoying this drama. I like the developing relationship between the OTP and yes, the kissy scenes :)

        • omo_omo

          Yes me too, one of my friend has always zero expectations she said. But I’m not sure if she is always happy. Still I think it helps and makes it more comfortable to accept things.

          • kdfan

            then maybe it’s more like No/low expectations = No disappointment ..

    • 61.2 PJ

      But looks like I shall no longer visit this blog as it has indeed disappointed me for not taking an ………objective stance

      LOL you think that being objective = fangirling
      objectively speaking imo this drama is very very flawed just as bad as MSOAN and even cheesier.
      From reading the recaps and now the weecaps i have to say i think JB/GF were being TOO nice when writing them.
      If they had wanted to mock the drama they have their work cut out for them, but from what i can see its not all about “bashing”

      instead of criticizing them why not write your own objective opinion about why LTM is such a great drama and why the criticism meted out is unfair?

      • 61.2.1 Ymee

        @ PJ, Seriously? MSOAN and LTM both dissapointed me to no ends. The best part about LTM is the chemistry between the leads and the kissing scenes. They aren’t going to be able to salvage anything so I hope they bring on the fan service. Use those lips I say!

        And Viven, I feel ya on the nice recaps from JB and GF but Santa is doing a fine job too. I hope he comes back for the rest of the series! But keep in mind that these are their opinions and you aren’t always going to agree. IMO, trying to write something nice and objective about the drama may not work considering there is no movement in the drama. And that’s just my opinion. Well, I do hope that you can over come this and continue to come here for recaps.

    • 61.3 Ahjumma

      I agree. I love this drama. It’s light, entertaining, cute and funny. Don’t get why most people are bashing this drama. What kdrama ever makes complete sense anyway. None that I know. You just enjoy it or you don’t. Nice to find others who agree with me.

  62. 62 evelia

    Thanks for the recap Santa. Still I am enjoying the drama even if the writer is not delivering. I have seen worst shows in which not even the actors could save the show.

  63. 63 zodd

    Love how this series has so many children watching it. Non of which can’t handle criticism that the show is getting. Time to grow up kids.

    • 63.1 Noi

      Seriously, sheesh!

      They’re awfully sensitive D:

    • 63.2 Kiara

      I so agree.

  64. 64 Susa

    Random observation: Ki-joon’s fancy home is the same home of Ma Hye Ri’s parents in Prosecutor Princess.

  65. 65 Aphrodite

    SBS changed the writers of the drama.
    Wait for more hilarious weecaps now that are…..only 4 episodes left.
    Wat de fak????????????????

    • 65.1 mandelbrotr

      Hi Aphrodite, Do you have any reference for this? I’m curious at which episode the new writers work is seen.


    This recap is sadly disappointing. If you are not going to try to put in any effort then don’t bother.

    I have come to expect witty, indepth, insightful recaps. What can I say, you girls have set the bar. Now live with it. If you are not up to snuff, then stay home. This is just insulting to your readers.

    Grade: F-

    • 66.1 javabeans

      “I have come to expect…”

      Ahh, well now, THERE’S your problem. I’m not your monkey! I won’t dance when you tell me to. Mostly ’cause I can’t dance. It’s the whole two-left-paws thing.

      • 66.1.1 bunny

        hehe you’re so clever. you responded very well even though #66’s comment was ridiculously inappropriate and mean.

        i for one love following your site and thought this post was hilarious… and i don’t even watch this drama. hehehe. thank you girls for the recaps and insight~ it’s greatly appreciated =)

      • 66.1.2 Santa Claus

        Di sssomeone order a dancing monkeeeey? ‘Cause I can’t giv those out anymore. *HIC!*

        Sssssomething to do with aminal monkeeey dignitary dig- dignity violashuns er sssssomethun… *HIC!* So nobody getsss monkeeeys anymore! Ho ho!

    • 66.2 Sethe

      Ouch. Why so mean?

      And on that note (slightly off topic, but related), in order to feel like less of a hypocrite, I want to apologize for saying mean things about Pil-joo on the Best Love threads. It’s only because I REALLY love Dokko Jin, but I’ve realized it’s unnecessary and might hurt people’s feelings, so from now on I’ll try really hard to keep those negative (jealous) thoughts to myself.

      Just really wanted to get that off my chest.

      • 66.2.1 b

        ditto 😀

    • 66.3 tari

      So rude.

      Just saying, I for one found JB and GF is pretty objective, even when my inner 12-years-old fangirl was in control and not my better judgement *cough*Secret Garden*cough*

    • 66.4 mandelbrotr

      huh (speechless)

    • 66.5 Venus

      WOW that is sooo out of line… I’m sorry but JB and GF can do and write what ever they want , is their blog and if you don’t like or approve what has been written or said here, then move on to another blog, I’m sure they are millions of places on the web where you can spazz all you want…but plz show some respect. Open threat is to discuss, rant, spazz, or just be random.

    • 66.6 Okie Dokie

      Actually, your demands are insulting. Who do you think you are talking to JB & GF like that at their site? The bar is your problem not theirs. Their weecaps are still witty and hilarious.

      I personally don’t feel insulted whatsoever. And I love LTM.

    • 66.7 Ahjumma

      I agree with you. The recaps have been “half-ass” at best.

  67. 67 Eliza

    Take it slow?? awww man. I was hoping for hot bed scene after all this! oops did i say that out loud?? *mwahahahaa*

    • 67.1 kd

      hahaha i know, right?! they shouldn’t be slowing down…hey drama, how about continuing with the fan service? 😉

    • 67.2 78446

      my thoughts exactly! har, i’m not the only perv here. it’s like a love story told in reverse: hate each other > bicker playfully > “marry” > hot sexual tension > hateful exes meddling > then romance.

    • 67.3 Carinne

      LOL! I presume we’re volunteering to register on Santa’s naughty list now?

      He’s been outsourcing a lot of his work nowadays. He says it’s a trend. Pfffft. Later, he might confess Mrs. Claus stopped making home cooked meals, and every day orders take out through her millions of iPhone apps.

      Did I clarify I’m on Team Naughty? I vote “yea” for hot bed scene.

      • 67.3.1 Carinne

        This can be fun…….. keep the list moving.

      • 67.3.2 78446

        Eek, nay on the Naughty. I promised Santa we’d be extra nice today so he comes back to recap.

        think clean thoughts
        think clean thoughts
        think clean thoughts

        *remembers cola kiss*

        ack! not working!

        • Bex

          Hot bed scene ftw.

          Take Kang Ji Hwan’s hot (but interrupted) scene out of My Girlfriend Is An Agent, put it in Lie To Me (no interruptions) and then hope for another recap from Santa. I’d love to see how he puts it into words (yes, he). :3

  68. 68 ai

    hey santa,
    you’re funny :)

  69. 69 luvmydramas

    This may not be the most surprisingly plotted drama, but there is plenty to love here. The stars are great together and if you suspend your critic hat and watch it just purely for enjoyment, it’s a lot of fun and very addicting. I find that I am waiting like crazy for every new one to come out and end up watching it several times. Give it a break. It ain’t Shakespeare, but sometimes that’s just the ticket.

  70. 70 suzi q

    Dear Santa: Your weecap was concise and hilarious especially the translation into 3 languages part.

    Please bring me a present. I hope AJ and KJ will ignore the GO SLOW bit. It’s episodes 11, and I agree that there are no hot bed or kissing scenes.Changed writers. It shows. It’s PG rated? I’m going comatose waiting.

    Yoon Ju is Totally Delusional and Illogical and seriously in need of mental help. Who in their right mind plans for a wedding without notifying and getting agreement from the groom? HUH?

  71. 71 hermosa5790

    I still love it. I’m not digging for an educational drama. the world is depressing enough as it is for us live. I don’t want to frustrate myself debating about a make believe / fantasy drama. I want to watch silly, illogical, stupid tug of love drama and LTM just is the right choice for me. Light, breezy, fun, trendy and cute couple :)
    People are entitled to their own mind. If they hate something, by golly, it’s their rights. If they like something, then just love it.

    on a side note: I want some hot kissy-kissy lovescenes, enough to burn Ki-joon’s sprawling home. kekekeke.. 😛

    *praying hard to dramagods*

    • 71.1 hermosa5790

      lol, i retracted my comment about burning KJ’s home. Just his big four poster bed and those luxurious bedsheets..kekekeke.

  72. 72 Lizzy

    I don’t know if this is good news (ehhhhhhh, still doubt it) or bad news. how can the new writer salvage the drama with just 4 eps to go. they should have done it after the first or second week of showing. TOO LATE and rather POINTLESS now. Well……………………better late than never (cringe, cringe, cringe) BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • 72.1 Carinne

      Already done deal, new writer gave you her blood E.11 and some.

      Let’s try to enjoy the rest, shall we?

      • 72.1.1 Venus

        WOW I guess this is Mary all over…I feel bad for the actors cause they are awesome and is what keeping the drama at float, but with no substance there is not much the actors can do. I hope that the new writer can be able to bring new air to LTM.
        Srly, LTM had a great concept and idea but I guess the writer were not able to execute it properly.

  73. 73 Pinocchio

    Dear Santa,

    I see that you’ve been busy writing this wee cap for Lie To Me. I thought a kid who lies automatically goes to the naughty list. And they never get a present. What is this nice wee cap all about? Sounds like a present for a good deed done. Now that is not so logical to my wee bit mind. Lie To Me has not been very good at all. I hope you give them what they deserve and give them the Bad Guy treatment. Or else I will also ask for the same nice wee cap for myself.


  74. 74 sleepyheadsparadise

    this got to be the funniest weecap ever! i loved it to death.. it never bored me. i had myself repeat it so many times and chuckle. good job! ^^

  75. 75 Ymee

    LOL. Please come back for more weecaps!

  76. 76 Rainie

    Nicely said. I thought this episode was all over the place. I really wanted to give this drama a chance because of the leads but boy, o boy, it’s been a disappointment since day one. I only watch it for the chemistry between the couple now…not for the storyline. There’s no character development for any supporting characters, and sometimes even the main leads themselves. *sigh*

  77. 77 rouby

    Thanks santa,,, I miss u since bad guy,,,, 😀

  78. 78 -eina-

    wuwuwu~~ santa weecap.. wuv u ah~~

  79. 79 YY

    Hi Santa! I haven’t got around to watching LTM and I doubt I ever will. Is it really that bad?

    Now to the real thing: Pls can I have Park Shi Hoo for Xmas? Or Kang-ah? Or BOTH? Thanks. I’ve been naughty and nice, so I deserve a reward.

    Santa, it’s really nice to chat with you in person. So I’m curious.

    1. What do you do the rest of the time you’re not doing Xmas stuff?

    2. Are those elves related to you?

    3. Do you wear boxers or speedos under your suit? I see you as a speedos kind of guy. In blazing red. HAWT!

    4. Do you shower or soak in a hot tub?

    5. What’s your fav kor drama? Betcha it’s Will It Snow for Christmas. HAHAHAHA Sorry, no offence.

    6. So why do you go HO HO HO when you do your rounds? Wouldn’t it be cooler to go HEY HEY HEY?

    I’ve tiled and oiled my chimney so it’s easy for you to just slide PSH/Kang-ah down. You take care now.

    • 79.1 samgetang

      YY! LOL! Do you only appear when Santa is here? :-)

      • 79.1.1 YY

        Hi Sam! Haven’t seen you for a while *hugs* I have a penchant for old men….Santa’s like Grandpa in a red suit, don’t you think?

        • samgetang

          What happened to you, our dear YY? Linda165 said that you ran off with a white guy? :-) But now you are telling me that Santa has taken your fancy…. :-)

          We missed you at Open Thread last Friday which btw totally rocked with over 1,000 comments 2 weeks already in a row!

          I cant imagine if you were there. Maybe it will reach to a whopping 3,000 with half of the comments all about old men and Kang Ah (sorry did not watch 49 days so Im totally lost on the Scheduler thing :-(

          • YY

            Sam, I read Open Thread…so hilarious. Just had a really bad flu which left me with a really bad blocked nose; took flu pills which made me so groggy and foggy. Had strange hallucinations of siwon’s abs turning into breasts as he showered….yeah, I was really sick.

          • samgetang

            abs turning into breasts…LOL! poor Siwon!

            that must be a very bad flu!!!

            hope you are much better now….and Siwon can go back to being his normal gorgeous self in your dreams err visions (shhhh…dont let Ms Viola catch us talking so carelessly abt her Siwon…)

    • 79.2 HanKang4ever

      I already sent a request to Santa to send Kang ah to me for Christmas!!! many many many weeks ago…

      I hope his delivery motto is “first come first serve”.

    • 79.3 Christine

      What do we do now? Everyone seems to want Kang AHHHHHH… (Saranghe!)

      I’m missing him already. I better go watch 49 days (again!)

    • 79.4 MJP



      I was listening to our Kang-ah singing today! Of course, the scheduler too, but does that really matter?

      What matters is that I got to read your comments!!!

      Yippee!!! My very late nighter has produced a very awesome surprise… A YY comment!!!!!!

      I am so HAPPY!!!!

        Hiya, MJP! Thanks for the warm welcome *hugs*. I had a really bad flu last week, kept sneezing,coughing, and could barely stay awake with the flu med. Today is the first time I’m at DB….read open thread LOL No, regretfully I didn’t elope with darling Kang-ah. Linda, I’m out of wax. No more kang-ah hot and waxies *bawling* miss him so much I can’t find a worthy drama to replace 49 Days. Am now waiting for Heartstrings and PSH. Kang-ahhhhhhh!

        • MJP


          I am saddened to hear you were so ill. However, I am very happy and grateful that you are feeling better.

          Okay, so what are your thoughts about Skip Beat/Extravagant Challenge with Siwon and Donghae?

          Or what about Scent of a Woman with Kim Suna and Lee Dong Wook?

          Finally, how did you feel when you hear that Jae Hee had injured his back while filming surf scenes and had to pull out of his new show?

          Oh, wait… One more thing? Cola or tomato juice?

  88. 88 Christine

    Many thanks for the wee-cap.

    I’ve been engrossed watching Spring Days, a 2005 drama, that I’ve lost touch with LTM. I have to resume as from the 7th episode.

    Some people have been discussing about Hotties! I’ve just noticed someone mentioning Lee Seung gi. Yes, indeed he is – watch him in 2days/1 night – and the more you’ll be smitten with this guy.

    The hottest for me, at the moment, and which I will include on my shortlist that would include KANG AHHHH….. , Eric Mun, is So In Jung. Just got out of the military, mind you, and hope that he’ll be in a drama soon.

    I’m so looking forward to it.

  89. 89 Verònica

    Hmm…the “A Team” theme playing when the helicopter came to their rescue: someone in the LTM writing department is trying to channel some of the winning factors(the silly music cues) from the most awesome, silliest drama filled with best loves and pet potatoes… :)

    Finally Ki Joon’s balls are growing!!! Had he been this adorable before, it may have been more enjoyable to watch.

    But Kang Ji Hwan…damn…uber hawtness… <3<3<3

    I loved this ep, especially the last part…omo, a tux and a beautiful gown for her with candle light dinner complete with wine and flowers and the proposition….

    finally we can see this couple ‘not’ fighting and shouting at each other!

    and that girl better take the hint that he no longer like her and just go back to Paris or wherever she was the last 3 years!!! or better yet, go back to SangHee…

    thanks santa for the weecap!!!

    This is turning out to be be sadder and sadder. Thank God the two are cute but I have abandoned all hope that this will ever get out of the crazy path.

    Is Ki Joon’s manager-friend trying to create some kind of corporate chaos or something?

    That dinner thing at the end probably is the most unromantic romantic gesture ever. It’s not grand enough to be fairy tale-y but its not humble either to be sweet. Its just weird. Plus the setting is just so ehhh. Weird. I seriously am all out of hope for it to be better.

      I’ll take this very romantic gesture anytime!

      It’s Cinderella! Ki Joon style! There is a handsome prince (chabeol), a beautiful but poor servant (public servant), a luxurious white carriage (limo), a castle (5star hotel) up high, and a beautiful ball gown with a handsome man vying for your love.

      Ahhh sweet… Cinderella, my favorite fairy tale!

    and talking on plots done a hundred time before..the meeting with the aunt and the second lead girl and parents..is that to be a build up of the “I had do more for him than you can” story line ie her family has the connections to help him in business.
    I have no troubles with odd worn plot devices, as long as they are done well and written well, but other than most of the scenes with the two leads together much of the side plots have a feeling of just been through out there messily and you just can not take it at all seriously.
    I could mention another drama also on Mondays that is totally old school, but its writing is tight the actors believable, they make all those old plot devices work!

      awwwwwwwwwww you talking BFB? If you are I agree the cocept is old school, but BFB has its unique charm that keeps tuning in.

      Santa, can you add Danial Choi to my hottie list?PLZZZZZZ… thanks!!

      • 97.1.1 Celexa

        Venus… stop being greedy! leave some hotties for the rest of us!

        • Venus

    Dear Santa,

    Your greetings take up half of your wee recap. But to me it’s the best part of your post, even more entertaining than the summary of the episode itself.

    after reading many of the comments here related to the good and bad points of LTM, i would like to believe that low expectations does not necessarily ensure happiness… in fact it only ensures that we get crap…
    and more of it in the future…

    if we will be objective about it we will realize that its not how many of the things we know has evolved to become better products, better services…safety of the people are also sacrificed if high expectations are not set

    in the case of dramas, if people do not voice out, in a constructive way, their high expectations from the story-makers on what kind of stories they will listen to or how they will be told, then we will never enjoy beauty, excellence, perfection….we will be stuck with mediocrity, worse, rotten tomatoes…

    and that’s not a recipe for happiness at all :-(

    but this does not mean we go uselessly bashing all things not yet perfect because they are all vital part of the process and journey towards excellence…this path can sometimes kill enthusiasm and creativity if it runs unchecked…

    our one small voice can make a difference if we use it to achieve beauty and harmony in our midst. i think we need to use it wisely, humbly, responsibly and courageously. :-)

      What wise words, my friend Samgetang!

      When you speak such wisdom, I wonder if you are 100 years old… Hmmm, could be?


      • 99.1.1 samgetang

        an old soul, maybe? hahaha, MJP! next we know we will be having a new guessing game about ages…and we don’t want to go into that direction, right? do we? hahaha!

        *shhh…TRH Ricky-ssi might get wind of this conversation…*

    • 99.2 Jane

      I think the Korean fans have already spoken with the low ratings.

      • 99.2.1 samgetang

        I have much faith in our Korean brothers and sisters 😉

      • 99.2.2 samgetang

        on second thought, i think the writer of LTM might be targeting the int’l audience with this drama (hint: ice cream and cola kiss)

    • 99.3 Sethe

      I think my friend (whose philosophy about expectations and happiness you refer to here) would probably agree with you 100%, as I do.

      I think this is a philosophy embraced as a self-protective mechanism by very cynical people who set a very low bar for “happiness” — it’s not really “happiness” at all, as other people would understand/define it, but rather simply not feeling bitter, angry, and miserable about whatever happens, and not feeling like a chump who was duped by allowing him/herself to believe that something better might be possible.

      Very sad, I know — and really only proves your point. You get as much as you expect/demand from life and others (broadly speaking), so if you have low expectations for “happiness,” you’ll get exactly what satisfies your definition, and nothing more. But at least you’ll be happy with it! 😉

      • 99.3.1 samgetang

        we should never settle for anything less. if we are disappointed because we raised the bar too high it’s okay because at least we still did not get the bottom of the barrel. it is not in the getting but in the aiming. the more you aim high, the more you will get better and better results. the problem with some who aim high is that they focus on the reward or the prize or the thing that they are aiming for. when all you have to focus on is in the process, the journey. it is its own reward. no one can ever be truly happy with low expectations because we are all made for great, mighty, noble, excellent things. that’s how we are made and designed by God. it is a lie to think otherwise. it is our birthright, our destiny, as human beings.

    Most kdramas don’t make complete sense. You either enjoy it or don’t. I for one am loving this drama and did from the first episode. For those who love this Lie to Me and want to read a recap by someone who cherishes this drama as well, go to http://koalasplayground.com.
