Yoon Eun Hye will be returning to TV as the female lead in a new SBS Monday-Tuesday drama, ‘Lie To Me’, opposite Kang Ji Hwan. Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Hwan have been officially confirmed for ‘Lie To Me’, and a charming and perfect romantic comedy is much anticipated.

Lie To Me’ will feature the top nobleman of Korea (Hyun Ki Joon) and the most off the wall girl of Korea in her twenties (Gong Ah Jung), engulfed in a sweet and confrontational scandal that results from a most absurd lie. ‘Lie To Me’ is a romantic comedy about a scandal that ensues after a single woman in her 20′s, Gong Ah Jung, gets pressured to marry and ends up lying that she is married.

Yoon Eun Hye will play Gong Ah Jung, a “daughter mothers would love”, who is off-the-wall and spontaneous, but direct and determined. She will become the most lovable and diverse romantic comedy character. She runs into a great deal of problems with the scandal. An associate of SBS stated, “Yoon Eun Hye has decided to appear in ‘Lie To Me’, which will air after ‘Midas’. She began filming on April 6th.”

Kang Ji Hwan will play Hyun Ki Joon, a super-elite hotel CEO, who gets mistaken for Gong Ah Jung’s husband. This character not only possesses good looks, wealth, education, and fashion, but also self-esteem, responsibility, knowledge, and manners. This will be Kang Ji Hwan’s first project since his double-contract controversy involving the Korea Entertainment Management Association.

‘Lie To Me’, which temporarily changed its title to ‘Sweet Scandal’, has settled on its current title and has already started filming (April 6). PD Kwon Hyuk Chan (Secret Garden) and PD Kim Soo Ryong (Green Rose, First Marriage) will direct ‘Lie to Me’ and the drama is being written by Kim Ye Ri (Heading to the Ground)*.

The production company is confident that the two actors will make ‘Lie to Me’ the most successful romantic comedy drama ever. The production stated:

“Kang Ji Hwan has left the fans with a strong impression through his various transformations in movies and dramas. And we expect there will be an extraordinary chemistry between him and Yoon Eun Hye, who has become the representing icon of women in their 20′s with her bubbly and pure, innocent charm. Yoon Eun Hye has been able to earn empathy from the viewers with her ability to instill innocent charm in her characters.”

‘Lie To Me’ will start airing on May 9th on SBS, after ‘Midas’ ends its broadcast.

* Kim Ye Ri left the ‘Heading to the Ground’ production very early on and that drama is not indicative of her writing quality. She was hired by SBS after a very difficult,  formal selection process and is supposedly a talented screenwriter.

        There was an article released today that said that one of the PDs didn’t want the cast revealed. SBS had revealed that Yoon Eun Hye was cast about a month ago, but the PD said that wasn’t true and requested all the articles deleted. SBS stated today that Yoon Eun Hye’s contract was signed then, and they were just dealing with the leading man, but the PD had overreacted. So some sort of tension between the PD and SBS. SBS had wanted a full marketing course to take place earlier, but the PD didn’t want any news of casting to be released. No one knows for sure, but it could be in respect to YEH and her movie promotion.

    so the article said that SBS wanted to promote the drama several weeks ago, after the initial report of YEH being cast was leaked. But the PD got very angry and said that it wasn’t true. The PD then requested all articles of YEH being cast deleted. So there was a tension between SBS and PD. SBS today stated, ” Yoon Eun Hye was indeed already signed then, but the PD overreacted. We were only focusing on main male lead at the time, and her contract was signed”. So, it seems that PD of ‘Lie To Me’ (the ‘Green Rose’ Pd) twice denied Yoon Eun Hye signings and asked the articles to be deleted. SBS stated, “We have no idea why he was so sensitive about that.”

    Hahahah, SBS sounds like they were upset~
    I’m assuming the PD didn’t want the leaks to interfere with YEH’s movie promotions^^

      So that’s what going on with Lie To Mie. A drama behind drama. I wonder back then why they didn’t released a sooner confirmation about the casts :(
      Hoping that’s everything will going smooth after LTM being aired :)

      Well it’s understandable from both perspectives. SBS wants to promote the drama as soon as they can. And I don’t think YEH’s side would want to reveal this so early. It steals the thunder from My Black Mini Dress.

      Wow, YEH will be back on TV only a month from now!
