The Episode Review

My Lovely Liar takes a bow with a perfect ending. Everyone got what they deserved and the truth set many free. Even though this last episode focused on Hyang-sook and Tae-seob, we got to see what happened to the other characters too. 

Throughout this series, we have seen how Do-ha’s life had been affected by a lie and Sol-hee’s ability saved him. While we might have mixed reactions to her ending her Liar Hunter services, we have to admit that it might be the best thing to do. She doesn’t have to use the ability to make a living and can focus on her happiness. 

My Lovely Liar didn’t necessarily stand out but it was a heart-warming drama. Kim So-Hyun and Minhyun’s chemistry was intriguing and carried the show. The supporting cast also did an impeccable job. Let us know your favourite moments from the show. We always look forward to hearing your views.
