“My Lovely Liar” episode 16 review- final thoughts
It was definitely a cute drama and that was a super cute non-rushed ending. Seriously, the type of ending writing I’ve been wanting to see more of. Kudos to the rookie screenwriter who did a lot of things correctly in terms of writing, in my opinion.
While the drama had some difficult scenes, it still felt super cute and warm. This is the type of the drama that’ll leave you feeling fuzzy and happy to have seen it.
There are several things I liked about it including how there was no forced dumb ‘breakup’ in episode 14 which is usually the norm in every romantic drama these days. There was also not much forced drama with the 2nd male lead either.
The ending was written VERY well and all loose ends were accounted for. It was a treat ending.
I wouldn’t say the writing has been perfect in every aspect and there were some areas that I felt could have used a bit more thinking, but overall, it was a nice, sweet watch. Definitely something you can easily binge watch and enjoy.
The cast seems to be having fun, the atmosphere is chill. I didn’t personally think So Hyun and Minhyun shared the best chemistry, they more so had siblings’ vibes in my opinion, but it was not bad.
This is my 2nd time seeing Minhyun in a drama and I think he can become a huge kdrama star one day. He still needs a bit more practice when it comes to the emotionally charged scenes specifically, but he’s good for an idol-actor who started taking this route seriously recently. I can see him improving with each project. I think he needs to connect more with his feelings and be more expressive when it comes to deep emotional scenes but that’s a personal opinion. I still think he did well and held his weight as the main male lead just fine.
