Friday Flicks: Liar Game

TWhen I first read an article about it, it was described as a “Korean Hunger Games,” so I decided to take a look. Not too bad, but I saw a gifset on Tumblr that made me NEED to watch it. Not available on Dramafever at this time, but Viki has it available.

Title: Liar Game

Year: 2014

Country of Origin: South Korea

Genre: Action

Synopsis: When big money is at stake, to what levels will people stoop to win it all? Because of varied circumstances, both Nam Da Jung (Kim So Eun), a naïve and honest college student, and Ha Woo Jin (Lee Sang Yoon), a former psychology professor at Seoul National University and genius swindler, become contestants on the “Liar Game” reality show, which is billed as a “psychological survival game.” Contestants are expected to lie, cheat and use whatever means possible to emerge victorious and walk away with the coveted ₩10 billion. Hosted by the devious MC, Kang Do Young (Shin Sung Rok), with the help of his trusty PD, Lee Yoon Joo (Cha Soo Yeon), the reality show pushes its participants to the edge of morality and beyond. Who will emerge to win it all?

This is a Korean remake of a Japanese manga series from 2005 by Kaitani Shinobu, which has spawned a series in 2007 followed by a second season in 2009 and two films in 2010 and 2012.
