Kmovie - Too Beautiful to Lie (2004)

Synopsis - YesAsia

Too beautiful to Lie is a textbook example of manufactured romantic comedy. Kim is Joo Young-joo, a sickeningly lovable ex-con who accidentally comes into possession of a family heirloom engagement ring soon after her parole. She lifted it from the actual thief, but was unable to return it to rightful owner Choi Hee-Chul (Kang Dong-won). She instead journeys to his rural hometown and tries to return it to his family, but thanks to a variety of misunderstandings, miscommunications, and general silliness, his family comes to believe that she's his family comes to believe that she's his fiancee. Even worse, the story becomes that he knocked her up, and wants her to have an abortion. When Hee-Chul arrives with his real girlfriend following shortly thereafter, sparks of epic proportions are guaranteed to fly.

Too Beautiful to Lie is one of all-time-favorite Korean movies! I enjoyed the comedic confusion scenes. Hee Chul's family is so much fun!

When I first saw this movie, I wasn't convince Kim Ha Neul to play a convict. She looks so innocent! She got me though. Loved every moment with her! She is very natural with comedy, just like her role in My Tutor Friend.

Kang Don Won had the bowl haircut but is so natural at acting. His goofiness and getting into trouble with his family is hilarious.

If you haven't seen this yet, go watch Too Beautiful to Lie now!
