Character Overview
Joo Yoo Rin (Age 25)

Yoo Rin works as a tour guide on Cheju Island, hoping to earn enough for her father and her to have a stable life. Her survival skills include her ability to create believable lies when in a crisis.
But she meets a man named Seol Gong Chan, who is not taken in by her lies. Gong Chan offers Yoo Rin an opportunity to change her fate, by pretending to be his cousin.
Sensing the sincerity of a grandson who wants to fulfil his grandfather’s wish, and also because of the amount of money involved, Yoo Rin accepts. Yet she never expected that this role would be the toughest role and lie of her life. The Seol family takes her in with complete trust and love, and she becomes an integral part of their family. She also ends up falling in love with Gong Chan, who doesn’t realise Yoo Rin’s feelings for him.
She cannot lie about love, but neither can she tell the truth. To complicate matters, there is also another man, Jung Woo, who is waiting for her to see him…

To help his grandfather fulfil his dying wish, Gong Chan and Yoo Rin become accomplices in a lie. A past love who left him two years ago has now returned as well. Little did Gong Chan realize that making Yoo Rin take the place of his cousin would create such turmoil in his life.

He meets Yoo Rin, who is immune to his charms. Instead she cries in front of him because of another man. Jung Woo knows love can hurt, yet he cannot control it.
