The first episode of SBS Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Lie To Me’, which aired on May 9th, featured Yoon Eun Hye (Gong Ah Jung) in a continuous series of difficult and embarrassing scenes from the start, as she was attacked by the hornets during a conference of world’s Ministers of Culture in Gochang.
The conference became a chaos as many people were stung by the bees and ended up at the emergency room. Ah Jung was pressured into writing a resignation letter as the person responsible for the event. She then headed to a club to cool off, but ended up fainting in the arms of Hyun Ki Joon (Kang Ji Hwan) from an alcohol shock.
The embarrassment didn’t end there. Ah Jung would later find herself falling off the chair and stain her white outfit with tomato juice, causing yet another mess, when she visited Ki Joon’s hotel to repay him for the medical bill. She would even be asked by Ki Joon if she is hurting herself to force payments from him.
In the end, Gong Ah Jung’s lie to escape from an embarrassing moment in front of So Ran brings about a big problem. Hyun Ki Joon, who has a bright future ahead of him as the young president of World Group, would end up finding himself in the midst of a rumor that he was secretly married.
Viewers flooded the forum after the broadcast, giving high praises for Yoon Eun Hye’s ‘Humiliated Acting’, ‘Shameful Fighting Spirit’, and etc., showing their increased interest for the 2nd episode. The viewers also posted, “It’s because of the bees, because of the bees”, “I’ve fallen for Gong Ah Jung’s charms”, “It’s been awhile since we had a drama that’s worth watching like this one”, “Yoon Eun Hye is the best in crying scenes”, and etc.
