On October 13, during the press conference for the upcoming tvN drama “Liar Game,” the scriptwriter, Ryu Yong Jae, stated that this production is not a remake of the Japanese drama.

The writer emphasized, “I created a remake of the original comic, not a remake of the Japanese drama. It’s a different version from the Japanese one. The thing I kept in mind as I thought about making the adaptation is ‘Why did I choose ‘Liar Game?’ The Japanese drama also interpreted the original differently, and the same goes for our production.”

Ryu Yong Jae continued to explain, “One part that is a unique interpretation is the character of Kang Do Young, as well as the set-up of a reality show. I’ve been preparing this production for a long time. Before planning [“Liar Game”] with tvN, I had concerns about the airing of the show “The Genius” because there were a lot of overlapping aspects, but now it’s become a kind of ally.”

Meanwhile, “Liar Game” is set to premiere on October 20, following the end of “My Secret Hotel.”
