That is why fans were concerned when Hwang Min Hyun received the offer to play nerdy Yoon Ga Min. They believed that Hwang Min Hyun was too handsome for the role.
Still, throughout the recent broadcast of “My Lovely Liar” new drama, Hwang Min Hyun constantly showed various transformations. As a result, ratings for “My Lovely Liar” has risen to 2.9 for episode 4. It is a slight increase from the previous episode’s rating of 2.8.
