Lee Min-ki, Lee Yoo-young confirm political thriller Everyone’s Lie
OCN’s new drama Everyone’s Lie has confirmed Lee Min-ki (Beauty Inside) and Lee Yoo-young (My Fellow Citizens) as its two leads. Directed by Cheese in the Trap PD Lee Yoon-jung, this drama follows the story of a woman whose father suddenly dies and whose husband abruptly disappears. In order to save her husband, she becomes a congresswoman and teams up with a police investigator to pursue the truth.
At face-value, this sounds a lot like a gender-reversed thriller version of Lee Yoo-young’s most recent political-comedy drama, My Fellow Citizens, but the rest of the synopsis is much more chilling. Lee Yoo-young is a congressman’s youngest daughter, who looks sophisticated and successful to others. But inside the family, she feels that she has failed to live up to their high expectations of her. Living with toxic sibling rivalry, she feels like she’s inferior to her older sisters, but while her father was living, she received his absolute love.
She met her husband through her family in what seemed like a fateful meeting, but small disappointments lead them to live distant lives. Until one day, her father suddenly dies in a suspicious car crash, and her husband seems to vanish into thin air. Desperately trying to do anything to get her husband back, she becomes a congresswoman herself.
Lee Min-ki plays a police investigator looks like a cold, urbane man, but if you get to know him, he’s very affectionate and sociable. With great instincts, motivational drive, and luck following him, catching bad guys was both his job and hobby. But now, he lives a completely different life, having applied to work at an unpopulated, rural police station.
While living this ordinary quiet life, he somehow becomes the case lead on Lee Yoo-young’s father’s death. The congressman died in what looks like an accidental car crash, but Lee Min-ki realizes that there’s more to it than coincidence. In pursuing this case, his old memories of being an active field agent come back to him.
Everyone’s Lie will air on OCN sometime later this year.
