New tvN K-Drama My Lovely Liar is well underway, but there is an unexpected couple that viewers are now rooting for.
My Lovely Liar focuses on the relationship between composer and murder suspect Kim Do Ha (former NU’EST and Wanna One member Hwang Min Hyun) and “liar hunter” Mok Sol Hee (Kim So Hyun).
Mok Sol-Hee (Kim So-Hyun) has a special ability that allows her to distinguish whether people are lying or not. She hates her ability and views it as a curse. Because of her special ability, she is unable to trust anyone. Mok Sol-Hee gets involved with a murder suspect (Minhyun) who insists he is innocent, but nobody believes him.
While viewers have enjoyed seeing these two as their relationship progressed, there are more characters that they are shipping since Sol Hee and Do Ha became official…
Throughout the K-Drama, K-Pop idol Syaon (Lee Si Woo) has been a source of stress for many. She saw Kim Do Ha as more than her composer but a love interest. They were even rumored to be dating. She became so obsessive over him that she triggered his PTSD from the past traumatic event he experienced with his ex-girlfriend before her death, which he often blames himself for.
He remembered his past when he saw Syaon about to kill herself on the beach. but this time he succeed to save her. WHAT HAPPENED WITH DOHA & UMJI FIVE YEARS AGO??? 😭 i need their back story pls 😭😭#MyLovelyLiarEp4 #MyLovelyLiar#HWANGMINHYUN #KimSoHyunpic.twitter.com/ofc3ww5FkQ

While Kim Do Ha confessed that he only liked her as a singer, another man truly loves her: Baek Chi Hun (Ha Jong Woo). He works for Mok Sol Hee at her tarot café, but he trained to be a bodyguard, hoping to become one for Syaon as he is a fan of hers. He uses his free time to support her by attending protests and fanmeetings.
chihoon is really the sunshine in this drama. he wants to become syaon's bodyguard that he said it a joke so he thought doha was also joking when he said he is her songwriter. he's so innocent. cant wait to see his reaction when he finds out that its the truth😆😆

Baek Chi Hun and Syaon have crossed paths on multiple occasions. The first was when she snuck out of the hospital to get food at a convenience store. He recognized her but kept quiet, and she gave him a hardboiled egg.

When he met her again at a fanmeeting, he attempted to tell her it was him, but she acted like she didn’t recognize him.
One day, Syaon was recognized and being swarmed by people. So, he came to her defense, serving his unofficial bodyguard duties.
Syaon, I don't wanna hate you so much, so you better stop bothering Doha & Solhee and just go to the bodyguard. Don't be so annoying, ok?😆#MyLovelyLiarEp7 #MyLovelyLiar#소용없어거짓말#KimSoHyun #HWANGMINHYUN #황민현 #김도하 pic.twitter.com/TJPTreLyDb

As a true fan, Baek Chi Hun went to see a movie to listen to the OST Syaon had recorded for it. Surprisingly, she was the only other person in the theater, and again he recognized her. He realized that she appeared sad recently, so he encouraged her to take a break if she needed to and left quietly.

It's so amazing. Destiny at play.☺️
I'd like you to be happy as long as you do music. If that's to much, you can take a break.
I'd be unhappy, but what's more important is your happiness. 😭

Most recently, Syaon received negative comments on her posts following the news that Kim Do Ha is the same murder suspect from the unsolved case. She stopped herself from writing a response only to notice someone else did. She looked at the user’s profile and realized it was Baek Chi Hoon.

With their paths continuing to cross in recent episodes, viewers wonder if these two might end up together.
Yet, some have hoped that she has more character development first.
We have hope for Syaon’s character arc since Episode 10. So, hopefully, it only gets better for her, especially after she has announced her hiatus.
thanks syaon for growing up and for telling doha those words. it's so encouraging knowing doha had trauma of woman being over possesive about him#MyLovelyLiar #MyLovelyLiarEp10 pic.twitter.com/rbbkAZsWQ7

I'm so glad she realized she was being selfish, hopefully this means a new leaf for Syaon cuz I find her adorable. #MyLovelyLiar (is this the wrong time to say I hope that the ex-gf actually found a way to escape and didn't die at all?) pic.twitter.com/vNd56OEMNL
