A little lie leads to a whole lot of trouble in the Korean TV drama series LIE TO ME. Korea's favorite romcom heroine Yoon Eun-Hye (Palace) turns on her charm in this sizzling romance of errors with Kang Ji Hwan (90 Days of Love, Be Strong Geum-soon).

Civil servant Gong Ah-jung (Yoon Eun-Hye) is bright, sassy, and very single a point that gets rubbed in her face by a frenemy who is determined to put her down. To save her pride, Ah-jung blurts out that she too is happily married! It's just a harmless lie until the rumor mill starts cranking and links Ah-jung with hot-tempered hotel CEO Hyun Gi-joon (Kang Ji-Hwan), whom she met under fabulously embarrassing circumstances.
