Joy enchants Lee Hyun-woo with her voice in the Liar and His Lover
I must say I’m pretty impressed with this first glimpse at Red Velvet’s Joy singing for her new drama, The Liar His Lover. Starring Lee Hyun-woo (Moorim School) as the titular Liar, this upcoming youth rom-com is about a brilliant musician becomes enchanted, at first note, by a voice that inspires him like no other. The owner of this extraordinary voice is an ordinary female high school student (Joy), who in turn falls in love at first sight with this genius composer who hides his real identity from her.
Not going to lie—I definitely went on a Youtube spree to watch all of Joy’s live singing clip compilations after watching this teaser, which devolved into a half-marathon of We Got Married. So after this joyful (hur) detour, I’m optimistically looking forward to her debut drama project.
Lee Jung-jin (The K2) plays a character whose nickname is “Midas of Songs.” He’s the type of producer who’s great at spotting and polishing a diamond in the rough. Because he recognizes the importance of both artistic and market value, he was able to launch Choi Yoo-na, played by musical theater actress Hong Seo-young (Dorian Gray), from the idol band Crude Play into international stardom. Her fellow bandmate will be played by Lee Seo-won (Uncontrollably Fond), who is featured in the recently released still cuts with his bass guitar in hand, rocking out like a pro.
The teaser shows the two main characters in a studio room together. When Joy starts singing, Lee Hyun-woo’s expression becomes soft and warm, although after the last line in her song (“If only I had told that person… who left on a long journey”), he cuts off the sound and asks her sternly, “Did you even practice? Do it again.” But then he swivels his chair around and smiles as he listens to her singing again.
Monday-Tuesday tvN drama The Liar and His Lover will begin airing this March after the conclusion of Introverted Boss.
