The upcoming series "The Liar and his Lover" is set to unveil the acting prowess of some of South Korean's talented young celebrities. Recently, the said tvN drama's director described cast member Lee Seo Won as the actor who will become the next Song Joong Ki or Park Bo Gum.

Lee Seo Won is one of the promising actors that joined the tvN production "The Liar and his Lover." Despite having only a few projects under his belt such as the KBS drama "Uncontrollably Fond" where he portrayed Eul's (Bae Suzy) younger brother Jik, the actor is expected to unveil more of his acting abilities in upcoming projects.

"The Liar and his Lover" director Kim Jin Min recently gushed over Lee Seo Won's talents during the press conference for the said tvN drama. He admitted that he chose the rookie star since he considers him as South Korea's next big star to mimic Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Gum's rise to fame, Korea Herald quoted the filmmaker as saying.

Given Lee Seo Won's hosting stint in the show "Music Bank," Kim Jin Min commented that the actor is already mirroring the two Hallyu stars, who were once MCs for the said program. "The Liar and His Lover" director even highlighted how the three actors are part of the same agency, Blossom Entertainment.

Lee Seo Woon will portray the role of the talented bassist Chan Young, a member of the band Crude Play, in "The Liar and His Lover." Given Chan Young's inferiority complex towards the drama's lead character, genius composer Han Gyul (Lee Hyun Woo), viewers can expect to see several tense encounters between the two musicians. Meanwhile, Red Velvet's Joy will portray the female lead So Rim who falls in love with Han Gyul and joins Crude Play given her beautiful voice.

In other news, cast member Lee Jung Jin complimented Lee Hyun Woo and Joy given their amazing on-screen chemistry during the press conference for "The Liar and His Lover," Soompi reported. He teased, "I think there's going to be a dating rumor about these two by the end of the drama."

"The Liar and His Lover" will premiere on March 20 on tvN. The said drama will release new episodes every Monday and Tuesday.
