Kim So Eun stars as friendly and innocent college student Nam Da Jung, who carries a financial debt.

The Liar Game original manga follows Nao Kanzaki, a woman caught in a dangerous high-stakes competition known as "Liar Game." Shinichi Akiyama is the genius con artist who comes to Kanzaki's aid. The manga entered its final arc in March.
The manga already inspired a live-action Japanese television series starring Erika Toda (Death Note films) and Shota Matsuda. It ran for two seasons and inspired live-action films. Crunchyroll added the Japanese television series to its streaming lineup this summer.
