November 17 was production press conference day for the new romantic comedy starring Park Jin-hee (War of Money), Sweet Lies.
In the movie, Park’s character is a TV writer who still carries a torch for her first love (Lee Ki-woo). When she happens to get in a car accident with him, she jumps to make the most of this opportunity, and fakes amnesia from the accident (so she can stay at his place until her memory returns). Jo Han-seon is the childhood friend who tries to get her memory back (which is when “the story takes a twist upon a twist”).
Yes, we can all hate clichés as a rule, but there are always some that work for us (hence the continued use of clichés) — and this movie employs two of my favorites: amnesia and forced proximity. I’ll definitely be checking this one out.
