James Mudge easternKicks.com Though let down by its routine love triangle narrative, Love, Lies has a lot going for it, and is a superior and really quite gorgeous-looking Korean period drama Rated: 4/5 Oct 31, 2020 Full Review Diva Velez TheDivaReview.com While not perfect, Love, Lies is a worthy discovery of a time and culture in Korean history not often seen on western screens. Its fine acting, heady romance and truly gorgeous visuals make it a pleasure to watch. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 15, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

harsh c Watchable story of a woman triggered by jealousy into sociopathic behaviour. The acting seems melodramatic at times, but not as bad as the handful of Korean films I've previously seen. The main theme paints a negative picture of love which didn't resonate with me, so I wouldn't recommend it, despite the fact I watched it to the end. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The film, despite its engaging plot-line and attractive cast, is clumsy and stilted at times. Placidly beautiful main actress, Han Hyo-joo, lacks the range to pull off the scorned woman role convincingly; at times, it even feels like the two actresses who play So-yool and Yeon-hee should swap parts. Still, the movie was engaging in its exploration of history and the dynamics of female friendship. Tears were shed at the finale, and the chemistry between Yoon-woo and Yeon-hee is palpable and electric enough to elevate the film from being a thoroughly tepid melodramatic affair.
