To salvage her pride A-jung (played by Yoon Eun-hye) concocts a series of lies to convince her friends that she's married to Gi-jun (played by Kang Ji-hwan), a man she hardly knows! She was a woman who no longer believed in love after her best friend stole her boyfriend. He was a perfectionist who sacrificed everything for his younger brother after the tragic death of their parents—including his lover. Though both had given up on finding their soulmates, was it possible that the fates had given them another chance?

The new drama 'Lie to Me' stars Yoon Eun-hye, known for her success in the dramas 'Princess Hours,' 'The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince,' and 'My Fair Lady,' and Kang Ji-hwan, who is making his first major appearance after having completed his military service. The heartfelt performances by the cast and fast-paced plotline have quickly gained the drama a wide international fan base, turning filming locations like Beartree Park, Konjian Resort, and W Seoul Walkerhill Hotel into popular tour attractions.
