Liar Game: Episode 6
by | November 6, 2014 | 257 Comments
So good. SO GOOD. This is a deceptively touching episode of Liar Game as well as for humanity, since Da-jung’s kindness finally yields some positive results. Of course she had to lie a little to achieve said results, but I wouldn’t call that selling out as much as growing up. Or growing wise(er)? Da-jung could... More »

Oh, I love this episode—our hero takes one important step towards becoming a virtuoso, but more importantly, his music stirs something deep inside our heroine and the focus shifts to how he influences her.

A fresh chapter opens, and wowza are we in for some dramatic changes.

The playing field gets a shake-up and the dynamics get turned all upside-down and around, in a fun way that makes for some significant character movement. I love to see the orchestra coming to the fore and becoming, rather than an albatross around your neck to drag you down, something shiny and exciting on its... More »
