A 1994 reunion in romance thriller Secret Temptation
by | February 6, 2014 | 20 Comments

Another Answer Me 1994 reunion is upon us with the upcoming film Secret Temptation, which earlier cast Yoo Yeon-seok to romance Im Soo-jung and now has added pint-sized Do-hee to the cast. (The other 1994 reunion pairs Dad with Samcheonpo in Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, which stars Ha Ji-won and Ha Jung-woo.)

Secret Temptation is the Indecent Proposal-esque romantic thriller wherein Im Soo-jung receives a “dangerous and attractive proposition” that would change her life. That entails setting aside her younger lover (Yoo Yeon-seok) to seduce an older, wealthier man, to be played by Lee Kyung-young (Vampire Prosecutor 2, The Terror Live). He’s the owner of a casino group in Macau and believes that everybody can be controlled by money. Complications, I presume, ensue.

Do-hee will play one of Lee Kyung-young’s employees, the youngest crew member of his ultraluxurious yacht who comes from an ordinary background and thinks enviously of rich Prince Charmings riding in on white horses to save the day. That yacht will be one of the central locations around which the story unfolds, named Rising Sun and manned by a staff of fifty. Among the supporting cast are familiar veteran faces Park Chul-min (Age of Feeling) as the ship’s captain, while Jin Kyung (Good Doctor) will play the rich man’s personal secretary and manager.

Money, sex, power, mind games: Sounds like juicy stuff. Secret Temptation will begin filming in mid-February and aims to release in the latter half of the year.

    I feel like film plot these days are so much more interesting than drama premises… I know we can’t have too much of sex and violence in dramas, but damn if I don’t want a longer version in some of these latest movie productions.

      Korean movie is way more open and challenging than drama

      Me too. Cable channels should give it a go. A 19+ drama would do well, I think, why not?

    Oh frabjous day! I have nothing at all against YYS, who got shafted by the stupid games played with his character in AM94, but MIN DO HEE?! DAEBAK!! So excited to see her in a film, loved her to bits in AM94, the YJ/SCP arc was the only reason I stuck with that Drama, hip hip hooray that the ratings explosion is already paying off for her!

    Yoo Yeon Seok in a sexy movie! Yay, may it erase the bitterness of AM1994.
    Is he playing antagonist or protagonist??

      He’ll be playing a villain protagonist, I suppose.

    Oh man. I had to re-read this a couple of times to understand this, my lack of sleep is to blame. LOL. For a second I thought yoo yun suk would be the one ditching im soo jung to seduce an old man. I was like WOAH. That is sorta hot. Can’t wait to see this!

    Ahh… Chilbong-ah~~

    Love Im Soo Jung as well.

    Will Dohee be romatically involved with Yoo Yeon Seok’s character, too? If she will, then this will be a whole lot more interesting!

    I hope the movie will not follow ‘Woman of Straw’ very closely though the movie is based on it. They should make it to be more exciting than the original and I don’t want the thriller to be so predictable. Give me pleasant surprises show!

      Okay wait now that I re-think about this : the announcement of Park Chul Min, Jin Kyung and Dohee joining in the cast is the indication that the thriller will be less predictable than I was earlier afraid of. Ooohh I like.

    Dang, YYS looks so youthful that DH looks older than him in that pic even though she’s 19/20 only? Please share with me your fountain of youth Yeon Seok-shi 😉
