And actress Go Ah-seong, who has proven her acting skills and box office success by appearing in Bong Joon-ho's works from <Monster> to <Snowpiercer>, radiates a more mature acting and charm through her chic older sister, Manji. In particular, Kim Hee-ae and Go Ah-seong, who show a mother-daughter relationship that deepens little by little while fighting after the death of Cheon-ji, lead the play with a perfect acting ensemble.

and even special characters
A wealth of fun created by various characters!

The movie <Elegant Lies> evokes empathy with the appearance of our mothers, older sisters, younger brothers, and friends, while the appearance of characters full of personality provides fun that cannot be missed. Hyeon-sook, a mother who does her best to do her best for her daughters, who is barely making a living while making breakfast, and Man-ji, an indifferent older sister who doesn’t care much about other people’s affairs, and Cheon-ji, the most kind and deepest youngest. It conveys intimacy through the ordinary, everyday appearance of a single family that can be seen. And after the death of Cheon-ji, Hyun-sook, who tries hard to regain her usual appearance, but suddenly pours out the sadness she swallowed without knowing it, and Man-ji, who can't hide her belated regret for her younger brother while harassing her mother not to pretend to be bright, not to overdo it. It adds empathy and stimulates empathy. In particular, the lines that do not forget the wit even in sad situations breathe life into these characters.

In addition to these family members, various characters that capture the emotions of their peers, including 'Hwayeon', who had no choice but to lie to protect themselves, and the friends of Cheonji, can be seen in real life and at least once. It doubles the emotional immersion with ordinary people around you that you've seen.

The story of all of us in need of communication, interest, and understanding!
A lingering aftertaste that soothes the heart! A message that comes with deep empathy!

The movie <Elegant Lies> conveys a strong reverberation and emotion through the process of uncovering the heartbreaking truth of Heaven and Earth, who passed away first. Chunji was the youngest to laugh and talk less at school, but to her mother and older sister, she was the sweetest and kindest youngest. For this reason, the fact that Cheonji chose death on its own, and the reality that they do not even know the reason, remains an indelible pain and question for the family. Also, I think it has nothing to do with the death of Heaven and Earth because it did not directly hurt them, but the truth is that no one is free from the guilt of indifference and indifference. Beginning with the death of Heaven and Earth, where even the closest family and friends could not communicate properly, <Elegant Lies> is a story of all of us who have many relationships, but it is difficult to share true communication within them, and forms a broad consensus.

On the other hand, <Elegant Lies> excludes provocative settings and expressions in dealing with rather sensitive subjects, and treats each character's story and story in a completely emotional and warm tone. "Elegant Lies" tells the story of Hyun-sook and Manji who look back on themselves as mothers and older sisters as they search for the cause of Cheon-ji's death, and Hwa-yeon, who also wanted to be the object of interest and understanding from someone. > delivers a deep impression with a message that naturally permeates into the heart even without trying to teach it. Through this, <Elegant Lies>, which gives a warm word to everyone, will warm the hearts of all of us who need sincere communication, interest and understanding this spring.
