  1. LOL “Lady & the Liar” has gone through so many minor English name changes… First it was “Lady & the Liar,” then “The Lady & the Liar,” and now “Lady & Liar.” Just pick one and stick with it, producers!

    Lucky Yang Mi. :D

  2. haha, the yang mi news is too cute~ xD
    By collaboration, could they mean a series where the two kids play a pair of childhood friends? :P I want to see more of them, but at the same time, I don’t want them to stay in the limelight for too long… ):
