Channel A’s “Lie After Lie” has revealed new stills of Lee Yoo Ri and Yeon Jung Hoon.

“Lie After Lie” is a new suspense-romance drama starring Lee Yoo Ri as Ji Eun Soo, a woman who puts her life on the line with a dangerous lie in order to be reunited with her biological daughter. After marrying into a chaebol family, Ji Eun Soo finds herself branded a husband-killer in the blink of an eye — and during her imprisonment for her husband’s murder, she loses custody of her daughter.

After repeated misunderstandings, through which Lee Yoo Ri was almost arrested after being mistaken for a kidnapper by Yeon Jung Hoon, the two reunite in the new stills, exuding a completely different atmosphere from their previous meetings. Yeon Jung Hoon holds an umbrella out for Lee Yoo Ri, who is standing in the rain. Though he had previously had his guard up around Lee Yoo Ri, his expression tells a different story, raising viewers’ anticipations for what causes their relationship to change in the upcoming episode.

Quick translations preview ep 9 (may contain some mistakes)   JM: Actually Woo Joo is my adoptive daughter HR: What I worry about is when that man knew about why Ji Eun Soo is approaching

Don't think so. I think she said he came to her bakery.   I feel more for JM. His wife cheated on him, almost killed their daughter and 5/6 years later, he opened his heart to a woman who wa

watched ep 4 and the drama is really hitting its groove. am really enjoying it. @joccu @alleram95 @Susu ~ don't think the golfer david is looking for eun soo for romantic reasons. my guess is th

So I watched the 3rd episode and I liked it a lot. :D I'm happy the ratings are also rising for the drama. I think the theme of the drama is resonating with a lot of people: paternal/maternal love.

 

I actually liked that even though the preview suggested otherwise, that Eun Soo didn't end up "kidnapping" her daughter and spending the day with her. Yes, she somewhat keeps stalking her but it's understandable at the same time. She has been surviving 10 years without her daugher because she was hoping to see her again and to live with her again.

 

I think the confrontation with Chairwoman Kim and also with Secretary Yoon rang something true in her. Which is why she decides in the end to leave, knowing that taking away her daughter from her family while she is a complete stranger wouldn't make Woo Joo happy. It was painful to watch.

vlcsnap-2020-09-12-12h10m25s662.png

Also I also liked that Eun Soo was thanking Ji Min. At first I didn't know why but I guess she thanked him for being a good father to Woo Joo.

vlcsnap-2020-09-12-11h50m25s739.png

The fact that Se Mi now returned to South Korea and also that Eun Soo witnessed how Woo Joo ran from Se Mi changed it all though. I also wonder why Woo Joo was so afraid of her mother but she is also right Eun Soo doesn't know what's going on. But we saw her keeping the photo of her mother like a treasure, so why is she so afraid? Is it because she left just like that and a photo is different from reality?

 

The whole Se Mi plot is actually interesting. I wonder with whom she cheated on Ji Min. I have to be honest for a short moment I thought she might've had an affair with Eun Soo's husband BUT that doesn't make any sense timeline-wise because she and Ji Min adopted Woo Joo after Eun Soo's husband was killed and Se Mi only later cheated on Ji Min.

 

I'm glad we got to see that actually Se Mi really loved Woo Joo and Woo Joo had a strong relationship with her. I was actually worried she might've not warmed up to her adoptive daughter but that wasn't the case apparently. Which makes me more now curious what went wrong for her to cheat on Ji Min and end up losing it before divorcing and leaving the country?

vlcsnap-2020-09-12-12h13m38s723.png

Also things are now tying up since Se Mi is the manager of the golfer Kim Yeon Joon who got a campaign coming for D.O. Cosmetics AND knows Eun Soo since he was a child. I think there is a lot more coming our way than we think. :D

actually found it a bit uncomfortable to watch a child being stalked even though eun soo is the biological mother. guess, in this day and age when so many bad things happen, it felt uncomfortable to see how easy it would be for a child to be followed... so can totally understand why ji min panicked when it all happened when another kidnapping happened at the same time...

 

am also curious why woo jin ran from se mi. it looks like whatever happened was rather bitter. found it interesting that se mi's sister seems to be more loyal to ji min and said that if he is not interested, then se mi needs to stop calling. it looks like se mi's family also are keeping their distance from her due to loyalty to ji min. so whatever happened was pretty bad...

yea both raised valid points and it is good eun soo is now thinking what is good for the child. so in some sense, she is the parent. makes you wonder about chairwoman whose motto is to grab whatever she desires. so what exactly did she lose by doing that? she seems to have inspired se mi to do the same. may turn out badly.... but liked how secretary yoon was trying to make amends by setting up a meeting with ji min to introduce eun soo. however she herself decided that it was perhaps not for the best...

 

the preview for ep 4 looks good. is this date the start of something between eun soo and ji min?

Oh for sure! I didn't like it either that Eun Soo was stalking Woo Joo. I can't get behind the reasons but let's be honest, the way she is dressing makes her look suspicious and frankly scary-looking to a child. And I'm definitely with Ji Min to be angry and worried and then calling the school to make sure the children, his daughter specifically, are safe.

 

Yeah, it made me curious as well when Se Mi's own sister refused her and even told her not to call her anymore. I was actually wondering if Se Mi's family knows the real reason behind the divorce or not?

I've been wondering since Ji Min and Eun Soo will get romantically involved at some point and Se Mi seems to decide to return to her old life which includes not only Woo Jin I guess. I wonder if this might turn out rather dangerous and complicated. Especially now that we've seen that at one point Se Mi did love Woo Joo as her daughter and now with Eun Soo in the picture... I just think about what Lee Yoo Ri said about the drama that it is about maternal love.

my guess is that the drama explores all the spectrum of maternal love. often parental love, especially maternal, has this angelic like glow in many dramas but we are already seeing the opposite of that in this drama. chairwoman is bitter, spiteful and vengeful enough to kill a baby because of her maternal love. she is also bent on destroying eun soo's life because of the maternal love she feels. then there is se mi -- she not only walked away from a marriage but also woo joo. it seems like for 3 years, she didn't keep in touch and for some reason, woo joo is scared of her... but now it seems that her maternal love will have her barge in to woo jin's life regardless of the consequences...

The drama is getting interesting.. Eun Soo finally starts her project to be Woo Joo's mother, by gaining Ji Min's love. I wonder how about her revenge to Chairwoman Kim Ho Ran. While I understand that her prioritize is to be in Woo Joo's life, I think clearing her name is also important...

I'm curious about the golfer, why is he looking for Eun Soo? Is she his first love? Or something more special reason? :huh:

 

Preview ep 5

 

 

 

Rough trans 

ES: Today felt like a gift
ES: It was warm
ES: I won't ever forget it
ES: For being able to reach it, with a warm person like you
JM: I hope your life would be better
ES: I won't leave
Secretary Yoon: You can't reveal that you are her birth mother and she was an adopted child
ES: I didn't intend to do that because I won't appear in front of her as her birth mother
ES: This man, he doesn't have a wife
SM: I want to go back
SM: At least for Woo Joo's sake, it is right for me to get back to my old place (as JM's wife)
Secretary Yoon: I will look out for Ji Eun Soo
HR: Where is Eun Soo now?
ES: Oh?
JM: Oh?!
JM: I thought you said you were leaving
ES: I moved near the neighborhood
WJ: Ahjumma (ES) made people feeling good, that's why I'm happy when I'm with her
ES: I will do whatever so that I can be Woo Joo's mother

 

Yeon Jung Hoon, his sweet smile :wub:

 

Oh and Eun Soo previous cell-mate move near Ji Min's house. She got her boy back. The boy, Jin Guk, seems to have a crush with Woo Joo :D

@Jillia @Lmangla, should I tell you an interesting fact? They are not Eun Se Mi's family, they are Kang Ji Min's family. Had my doubts, somewhat figured out about in Ep 3. I will write about the drama after watching episode 4, but thought it is better to make this clear because it is causing a lot of confusion I guess. 

 

So Ji Kyung is Ji Min's sister and the owners of restaurant are Ji Min's parents. Just checked it with AsianWiki and Wiki D-addicts. 

 

But even I thought till the mid of 3rd episode that they are Se Mi's family. But Ji Kyung's interaction with Ji Min made doubt it.

Oh thank you for the info, @Sleepy Owl! :D I was actually super confused. But it actually makes a lot more sense, especially in the way Ji Min addresses Ji Kyung. Plus her name... *facepalm at me* How could I not notice?

 

Yeah I got doubtful at that time, and then when he messaged her to take Woo Joo back him and he'll treat her Korean Beef, I was almost sure about her being his sister, but still was doubtful. I mean he looked very close to her than her to be his sister-in law. After divorce things usually are awkward with the in-laws which wasn't there, so I was super confused :crazily:. Had to check online to confirm things.

it takes me a while to learn the names of the characters and so didn't even realize her name was ji kyung. thanks for clearing that up @Sleepy Owl.. then the reactions of the grandparents at the restaurant makes more sense -- they are protective of woo joo and are proud of her to name it after her name.

 

must say I like how the ending credits does this paint brush kind of technique. rather cool!

did Semi really have an affair? Even after they adopted Woo Joo she still wanted to have her own child. 

 

the way chairwoman spoke to Semi about not wanting to lose anything any more. What did she mean?

Yeah she did lose her son but it sounded more than that?

 

glad to see that Eun soo cellmate got her son back? but is she going to make trouble for eun soo or help her?

"I will protect you from now on" it said in Kwon Hwa Woo's poster. He will show his innocence and unrequited love towards only one woman: ES.  He is a professional golf player and he has been in love with Eun Soo since childhood, and he's expected to form a romance by revealing the unchanging love for her, even after a long time has passed.

He surely believes in Eun Soo's innocence. Maybe he helps Eun Soo to get revenge.

Okay, Ji Min's sister and mom are just aggravating. The sister has the most annoying voice like she's on stage all the time, and the mom just shrieks and yells when she should not.

 

I wonder how ES is earning money for her makeover and art business? She got rejected as a convict for one job. But usually there are programs for helping rehab ex-cons.

Just watched episode 4. So far I am loving the mother daughter reunion. There is also some sparks from JM and ES. The stepmother is all ready acting psycho. It's going to be a long ride of her interference. I wonder what the chairwoman is going to do when she finds out that ES daughter is alive and well. Will she try to kill her again? She seems unhinged so anything is possible. 

 

When JM finds out who ES is, he will be hurt. Next episode ES will try to get close to JM. 

 

Plus we have another player vying for ES attention. Her childhood friend ?

Just one day after making Channel A history with a brand-new ratings record, “Lie After Lie” has done it again!

On September 12, the new suspense-romance drama starring Lee Yoo Ri and Yeon Jung Hoon continued to draw new viewers and achieved its highest viewership ratings to date.

According to Nielsen Korea, the fourth episode of “Lie After Lie” scored an average rating of 4.2 percent (both nationwide and in the Seoul metropolitan area), easily breaking its own record from the previous night for the highest ratings achieved by any drama in Channel A history. The episode peaked at an impressive 5.3 percent in the Seoul metropolitan area.

I'm quite happy that this show is getting good ratings! I am enjoying it.

 

Lee Yoori deserves all the kudos. She is great at the overwrought screaming and crying. Episode 4 also reminded me that she is great in the quieter moments, where you can see all the emotions just brimming in her eyes. She is just great. She single-handedly makes this show worth watching.

 

The story hook is great, too. I mean, it's ... out there, but don't you want to see how this ends? I do!

 

That little girl playing Woo Joo should get a lot of credit, too. She really breaks my heart. :heartbreak:

 

As long as these two elements are working, the rest should be good.

 

Random comments -  yes, I'm not a big fan of the screechy Grandma. And she said some very wrong stuff to Se Mi after one of her miscarriages. Very uncool.

 

Sister is too silly to take seriously.

 

I enjoy Se Mi. She looks like she is just one step away from being tipped over into crazytown. (Evil Chairwoman will help you get there!)

 

The golfer from America. Okkkkaaaayyy. I will reserve judgment.

Hello chingus, I binge watched the first 4 episodes. What a good revenge melodrama (LYR is the best in this genre) ! I am hooked. We are together for 6 weeks... 

 

The life of our FL ES was so sad and unfair. Hopefully, she will find happiness and really will be in love with the ML JM. And she needs a proper revenge !!! I really liked the daddy-girl relationship and the mommy-girl reunion. 

 

I think ES has money because she was married to a 2nd chaebol ? She must have some savings thanks to her art craft ? She might have met her husband during an exhibition...

She met her husband when doing a presentation of his company's products. He was smittened with her and mummy approved.

LYR is really good. I teared a few times in ep 4. Especially that part where she showed her daughter's photo in her phone to her dad. Is so so sad.
