Drama Review The Liar and His Lover (Lovely Love Lie). The Liar and His Lover may be a title that is familiar to fans of manga (Japanese comics) and Japanese movies. This drama is based on a manga titled Kanojo wa uso wo aishugiteru or better know as The Liar and His Lover or Love Lies for the Indonesian version.
This manga has previously been adapted into a live-action film in its home country, Japan. I personally really like the manga and I think the film adaptation is quite successful in conveying the contents of the original story. Typical Japanese live-action films always try to choose a cast that is similar to the original manga character. Early knowing this manga will be adapted into a Korean drama, between joy and fear.
Why are you scared? As a lover of Japanese dramas and films, several Korean drama adaptations from Japan made me disappointed. So instead of comparing with the original. Moreover, in this case, I am also a fan of the original manga.
