Lee Hyun-woo, Red Velvet’s Joy confirmed to play The Liar and His Lover

by tineybeanie | January 13, 2017 | 7 Comments

New tvN drama The Liar and His Lover, an adaptation of the popular Japanese manga Kanojo wa Uso o Aishisugiteru, has been confirmed for the newtwork’s spring Monday-Tuesday slot, and the two leads have been cast: Lee Hyun-woo (Moorim School) and Red Velvet’s Joy are confirmed to headline. From my initial understanding of the manga, I thought this romance would have an age gap, but with these casting choices, it looks like tvN is going for more of a youth-drama feel.

 

 

The Liar and His Lover is a love story about a depressed genius sound producer who finds inspiration in voices and the girl who lifts him out of his deep pain with her addictive voice. He initially meets her when he’s living under a hidden identity, but her courageous honesty and beautiful singing draws him back to her again and again. The drama is supposed to capture how this prodigy, who is so confident in his world of music, becomes awkward and unsure when it comes to love.

Lee Hyun-woo will be playing the musician-composer, and Joy will be the high school student who falls in love with him at first sight. To be honest, I prefer Lee Hyun-woo in bright, happy roles (Master of Study, To the Beautiful You), just because his infectious smile is so sweet. But I know he’s definitely capable of pulling off more nuanced, serious characters (Kye Baek, Equator Man). It’s just that the last time I saw him as a moody musician (Moorim School), it didn’t go down well. However, I’m glad to see that one failed drama hasn’t gotten him down, and that he’s coming back to show us his full potential.

As for Joy, I’m hoping for the best — it is her official acting debut, and there are mostly question marks all around as to how she’ll do. She did have a stint on variety show We Got Married with Yook Sung-jae, and they had cute chemistry, so I was left with an overall positive impression. But of course, dramas are a completely different ballgame, so I don’t know what to expect.

tvN’s new drama The Liar and His Lover, produced by PD Kim Jin-min (Marriage Contract, Time Between Dog and Wolf), will start airing in March after Introverted Boss ends.

I tweet about this 2weeks ago. And lo and behold, got this news. This confirmed, right?

I like this talented actor Lee Hyun Woo!. About time he got  lead role which is cool, I'll say. I was impressed by his acting in Equator Man - I cried lots watching that drama.

I've watched the Japanese movie 2x. Happy for Lee Hyun Woo. I'm not familiar with Joy though.  But LHW will take the role  Takeru Satoh. In the movie  he's like 26 yr old sound engineer also part of the band.... and will fall in love with 16 yr old high school student. I like that actor is younger than the character age. I'll check this one out. Hoping script is good and well written. 

By the way, I'm a fan of Takeru Satoh and yeah Lee Hyun Woo too <3

Red Velvet's Joy has been spotted with a new hairdo!

 

During the recording for the '2017 Idol Star Atheltic Championship', Joy surprised fans with a short bob and bangs. Many are loving her new style and assuming the sudden change is for her lead role in upcoming tvN drama 'The Liar and His Lover'. 

The photo below is the Japanese actress who played the female lead in the Japanese version of the drama. Fans assume that Joy is going for the character's signature look.

Lee Jung-jin joins tvN youth romance The Liar and Her Lover

by javabeans | January 17, 2017 | 3 Comments
 

leejungjin_90.jpg

Lee Jung-jin (The K2) is heading over to tvN (or should I say staying there for the time being) for his next project, manga remake project The Liar and His Lover (literally, the title means “she loves lies too much”), in which he’ll be playing a music producer who helps out our hero. (I know, another supporting role for him! — although this is a drama with a youthful bent, so it makes some sense.)

 

The Liar and His Lover previously cast Lee Hyun-woo (Moorim School) in the leading role of songwriting genius Kang Han-gyul (Lee Hyun-woo), whose identity is hidden for an undisclosed reason. He falls for high schooler Yoon So-rim, the girl with the “vitamin voice” who’ll be played by Red Velvet idol Joy, in what is described as a youthful, refreshing romance.

 

Lee Jung-jin’s character, Choi Jin-hyuk, is a producer with a Midas touch who has the highly refined ability to suss out talent. He’s also the CEO of an agency that manages a popular group of which Han-gyul is a member (ah, so is it a secret that he writes the songs, then?). Jin-hyuk discovered Han-gyul and values his talents highly; he’s described as Han-gyul’s helper and someone that Han-gyul needs. But it won’t be entirely smooth sailing between the two, because producer Jin-hyuk is insistent on music needing to be as commercially viable as it is well-crafted, and he and Han-gyul butt heads over the issue.

I still don’t see where the lying motif comes in, but I’m a sucker for dramas about youthful romances, dramas about music, and dramas that give Lee Hyun-woo a chance to shine. (I’ve been quite sad about the projects he’s taken on as he transitions out of child roles, and would dearly love to see him pull off a strong role in a successful drama.) This may be the thing to wipe She’s So Lovable from my mind (one hopes!).

The company producing the drama is Bon Factory, which was behind a number of rom-com hits, including Master’s Sun, She Was Pretty, and You’re Beautiful. Directing is PD Kim Jin-min of Marriage Contract and Pride and Prejudice. The Liar and His Lover will be tvN’s next Monday-Tuesday drama, following the just-premiered Introverted Boss; it kicks off in March.

@NamSeoYeon18@Chi Le Thanks for the updates. I'll be watching this. As previously mentioned.. I've seen the j-movie couple of times. For youth dramas, I always prefer doramas.. but I'll be watching this.

The title is tongue twister though. :D

 I'm really happy for this young actor. I think he deserves a good drama with good script and lead role. If you've seen the drama 'Equator man', you'll be impressed by his acting.  Moorim  School didn't really do much ( to me anyway) to really show his depth and acting skills. He's got what it takes. I like a lot of actors but mostly they're I like them mostly for their acting. And  LHW is one of them.

Below pic Yasss, they're filming already!

I loved the japanese version and Aki is an amazing character... Really excited to watch LHW in a lead role which i really liked....

Hope his styling is done perfectly (That look of Aki is one key element for the character. At least I felt so... So don't want a childish looking hairstyle for LHW), coz i know he will pull out the character really well ...

Thanks for the teaser. One thing I noticed.. they both look young..ish, which is good because in the movie Takeru Satoh did look like 26 yr old Sound Engineer/ composer/ band singer

 I wonder if LHW character here will have the same emo / doldrum state like in the movie. Oh and yeah  the female lead sings in the drama.. hence they pick an idol who can sing... hopefully we're rewarded with decent acting too. :)  and from the update of @NamSeoYeon18 the cinematography looks good! Should be cos in the  j-movie they first crossed paths on the bridge and she heard him hum the song he wrote. 

OT. I wonder why they decided on this instead version of the  j-drama "Love Song". I was thinking Jo Jung Suk for the  Masaharu Fukuyama role but anyway...sorry for the  OT. was just thinking out loud :tongue:
