If Lie to Me the drama was akin to a lie, promising something that didn’t exist (the normative good script and good execution requirements), then the process of watching LTM transformed the viewers into living the lie within the drama that turned out to house something unexpectedly real. Ki Joon and Ah Jung discovered that a lie allowed them to find each other, a true love blossoming from something untrue. We similarly all discovered a candid truth about LTM – however ephemeral or lacking the drama was, the undeniable truth was that Ki Joon and Ah Jung’s love felt real to us, and the chemistry between Kang Ji Hwan and Yoon Eun Hye was so genuine it might never be duplicated again.
As for the final episode of Lie to Me? It was simply DAEBAK. It was daebak not because it was some sort of well-written, well-reasoned narrative masterpiece
