tvN’s fantasy, romantic-comedy series “My Lovely Liar” did not perform locally, having a muted performance in Korea. However, the cable channel’s current series topped multiple video streamers’ charts for TV series internationally.
Entertainment giant CJ ENM stated that “My Lovely Liar,” starring Hwang Min-Hyun and Kim So-Hyun, topped the charts for TV series in more than 140 countries. The 16-part series topped Rakuten Viki’s viewership chart for two consecutive weeks since its premiere on July 31 in more than 130 countries in Europe, Oceania, and America.
“My Lovely Liar” also landed on the streaming service’s top slot in Asia, including Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Hong Kong.
The rom-com series follows the story of a young woman, Mok Sol-Hee, labeled the “Liar Hunter.” While meeting various people to distinguish whether or not they are telling a lie, Sol-hee encounters renowned composer Kim Do-Ha, who claims innocence in a murder case. The story develops as Sol-hee starts to take an interest in Do-ha, someone who has never lied in front of her, unlike others.
CJ ENM international content sales team director Sebastian Kim commented in a press release, “The global popularity of lead actors Kim So-hyun and Hwang Min-hyun created an explosive synergy with tvN’s rom-com series, which has been garnering international viewers’ attention with its own unique charms.”
