Drama Views: Liar Game (2014)

Liar Game is about a naive girl, Nam Da Jung (Kim So Eun) who finds herself playing a manipulative TV game show, with the help of a handsome swindler and ex-convict, Ha Woo Jin (Lee Sang Yoon). Despite being a remake of a Japanese show, tvN's Liar Game still manages to be thrilling and engaging. I watched the Japanese version several years ago under the coercion of my friend, and was highly bothered by the extremely OTT characters like Fukunaga.
Korea's Liar Game managed to capture my heart in a way the Japanese version failed to do so. tvN, give me season 2 asap please!!!
