Liar Game: Semi-Finals

Toda Erika, Matsuda Shota

I am actually NOT doing a side-by-side comparison post for this round. The Korean drama only has two episodes left and there is a reinstatement round where one person goes on and then the finals.

Now, I’m not quite certain just how popular the Japanese drama LIAR GAME was, but I’m fairly certain it
