Cha Soo-yeon in BIG BANG’s “Lies” MV
Not only appearing as an actress in dramas or movies, but who would have thought that Cha Soo-yeon’s acting skills could bring her appearances as a model in music videos?
In 2008, one of the most popular hip-hop boy groups from YG Entertainment, BIG BANG, released their single with a music video titled “Lies” (Hangul: 거짓말). The song is about the pain of losing a love that still continues to shine today.
In this music video, Cha Soo-yeon appears in the early seconds when the scene picks up G-Dragon‘s phone. Her face is still very young and in her teenage years, she looks very beautiful without heavy make-up. Cha Soo-jin looked very iconic in the clothes she was wearing at that time.
Then, the scene continued when she walked down the suburban streets, and some of the boys who were following her while singing were BIG BANG members. Cha Soo-yeon was also seen getting into the elevator accompanied by G-Dragon who was singing next to her but looked invisible at that time.
The scene continues with Cha Soo-yeon driving in her car and going to the supermarket to shop alone and he still looks very alone and sad in the music video. In the evening, Chae Soo-yeon decides to go clubbing alone to have fun where BIG BANG perform live at the club.
When she returns home she finds the scene of the crime. Cha Soo-yeon gets a flashback at the place and it turns out that she was the murderer of her boyfriend who was actually very abusive of her.
At that moment, G-Dragon tells her to go and he becomes the one who surrenders to the police and confesses that he was the murderer thus saving Cha Soo-yeon who is ordered to leave the murder scene.
