She’s been trained to follow wherever her Core leads. Until it leads her away from everything she’s ever known . . . into mortal danger.

Eighteen-year-old Kayli-el discovers she’s part of a new, evolving species on her planet, with a powerful internal guidance called the Core. After her teacher is murdered for its secrets, Kayli-el runs for her life – right into the arms of Tamber, a boy who’s crossed the ocean on a mysterious quest . . . to find her!

Liar Game ~ Korean Drama

Image
Isn't the Poster of Liar Game gorgeous? (I so want this in my bedroom) Name: Liar Game Language: Korean with English subtitles Episodes: 10
I am currently watching Liar Game and Oh. My. It is keeping me on my toes. The suspense is killing me! I seriously need my daily does of Lee Sang-Yoon.
I mean just look at him he is hunkalicious!
Apart from the eye candy there is a lot going on in Liar Game! I seriously love Lee Sang-Yoon's portrayal of Cha Woo-Jin. I wasn't sure at first because I had watched the Japanese Liar Game but I gotta say Lee Sang-Yoon is doing a great job with his facial expressions he actually looks like he's going through what his character Cha Woo-Jin is. 
Now enough about him let's go on to Nam Da-Jong, well Kim So Eun who is playing Nam Da-Jong is also doing great acting as an honest, naive and way too gullible character. I know she's doing her job well because as I am watching this drama I feel like going into my tablet screen and slapping he…
