Choi Ji-woo considers reunion with Kwon Sang-woo in Temptation

Okay seriously, what is in the water these days? The Hallyu 1.0 reunion tour is starting to become a rake gag. Will there never be a new coupling in dramaland ever again? SBS’s new melodrama Temptation is now courting Choi Ji-woo to star, which would reunite her with leading man Kwon Sang-woo eleven years after their 2003 drama Stairway to Heaven. Initial reports announced that Lee Mi-yeon was considering the role but ultimately turned it down, while Yoon Eun-hye is still being courted to play the other lead.

The drama is about a man pushed to the end of his rope over a massive debt, who accepts an offer he can’t refuse from a wealthy woman. In exchange for money she gets to own his body, whatever that means. Insert your own Indecent Proposal-inspired montage here. He makes the choice despite having a wife (Yoon Eun-hye, if she signs on), and though the deal he strikes has dangerous consequences, he’ll figure out what true love is because of it.

Choi Ji-woo is up for the role of the cold chaebol heiress who buys Kwon Sang-woo, and she’s described as haughty but charismatic. It sounds like an interesting character, and is at least something outside her comfort zone and another step in the right direction after her unexpected offbeat turn in Suspicious Housekeeper. I like seeing Choi Ji-woo stretch herself to do something outside the classically good heroine these days, and that’ll make the Stairway to Heaven reunion seem a little less like they’re stuck in one place treading water. In the ocean. While playing the piano.

Temptation follows Doctor Stranger on Mondays and Tuesdays in July.

Maybe they see the success of reunion of one hot OTP, Lee Da Hae and Lee Dong Wook-maybe not in rating, but the hype internationally is no joke. Old k-drama lover like me, is over the moon. I want more old OTP. I wish Choi Ji Woo with Bae You Jong instead-the Japanese ahjumma will go crazy.

Agree with you. The popularity and hype internationally of Hotel King because of Lee Dong Wook - Lee Da Hae repairing is no joke. I can imagine if all those popular old school K-drama couples reuniting again this year--K-dramaland will explode. Looks like the PDs and TV stations and the drama makers just realise that reuniting popular couple can get them advantage.

You mean that ajumma bob.....even the curls she wore for Mirae's Choice were pretty, but that bob aged her by ten years.

And to add insult to injury, she had her hair in a bob before c. 2008-09 and it looked lovely and stylish there! what happened?

I hope YEH declines because 1. This will be all about the reunion between Kwon Sang Woo and Choi Ji Woo and she doesn't need to get in the mix, especially another melodrama. 2. It gives us hope that she'll reunite with Gong Yoo since she won't be boggled down by this. It's hopeful but hey, why not? :)

I am so sold on this pairing. And I dont want Yoon Eun Hye on this mix. I love her but not for this drama because its all about sang woo and ji woo.

Since we are doing reunions... how about rain-song hye kyo, kim sun ah - hyun bin and princess hours season 2.

Speaking of possible reunion of couple from Stairways to Heaven, I would like to see reunion between Park Shin-hye and Lee-wan.

I still remember the young good actress PSH in Stairways to Heaven that made me fall in love with her, I still think that Lee-wan was her best partner so far. She need to act alongside someone that has depth in his acting..

Owh, I'm glad to see Choi Ji-woo unnie back to small screen!

OMG! I love Kwon Sang-woo and Choi Ji-woo togethere in Stairway to Heaven, I became a fan of them in that drama... Stairway to Heaven is one of my earliest k-dramas along with Autumn in my Heart and Dae Jang Geum.. Suffice it to say Autumn in my Heart (and the whole Endless Love package) and Stairway to Heaven were one of the reasons i veer away from melodramas and heavy stuff, and stick to rom-coms.. i call it melophobia.

The 10 yr old me was practically emotionally traumatized by these early melos.. That was the time where mostly watch disney princesses and animes and had no idea that there are tragic stories out there with sad sad endings..

Yep.. I stick to rom-coms after watching those old melos. I'm sorry to all fans out there, as much as I love the actors, but those melos bored me to tears. Way to much brooding scenes and really slow.. Had to force myself to finish them (you know the feelings when you didn't finish watching drama you felt like you have some homework undone ? )

I sincerely hope that he would end up falling earnestly in love with the woman who buys his body. However, it's very rare in drama land for us to see that a married couple breaking up and then one of them end up with the other leading character.

Most of the affairs drama (the ones involving married couples) don't have a happy ending. Kdrama production don't have the guts to go for a divorce that ends with a happy ending. Except for a very few drama like Queen of Reversal and.....don't know if there's any.

OMG, when something trends in kdramas they really trend! I still wish they'd have a reunion for some of my favorite couples. I won't name them in the fear of jinxing the chances :P

I wish they offered the wealthy woman's role to YEH. She's typcasted to playing nice, sweet, noble characters. Something like this would actually be interesting for her.

not really, Yoon Eun Hye was kind of a bitch in Take Care Of The Young Lady, that's why people couldn't accept her character because after seeing her being such a charismatic sweetheart in Coffee Prince, she played kind of a bitchy role after that.

don't knock stairway to heaven... jajaja it has a really special place in my heart seeing as that was THE drama made me give up J-dramas to make time to see K-dramas exclusively. I'd seen k-dramas before, but they were just ok to me since at that point I still watched Mexican and Japanese dramas and time wasn't enough. I have since stopped watching Mexican telenovelas and J-dramas I only watch when it's either Oguri Shun or MatsuJun and even then it's difficult to make time for them. AND all of that because I fell in love with Stairway to Heaven... aaah I still rewatch it every once in a while when I need a good cry, and i can't bring myself to cry over my own problems because my mother taught me to tough it out. I watch it and cry for them and put things in perspective since at least i'm not an amnesiac or do i have a fatal illness.

awww yesss, this drama could have TWO leading ladies I love! And if the kdrama heavens are riding the reunion train, I'll repeat my prayer and ask for them to please bring back the following:

1. Won Bin and Gong Hyo-jin (because Guns & Talks was not nearly enough, and can he please choose another acting project soon?!)

2. Kim Woo-bin and Kim Ji-won (because Heirs cheated us of them)

3. So Ji-sub and Gong Hyo-jin (in a movie this time so they can make out for real, maybe even a bed scene please?!)

4. Lee Jun-ki and Shin Mina (no need for words)

5. Lee Jong-seok and Kim Woo-bin (I just want to watch them sob over each other again)

As I read this post my head automatically plays the Stairway to Heaven OST (bo go ship daaaaa~). This was the first K-drama I was really into and both of them made me cry a lot. I still got excited when I visited the amusement park in person 10 years after the drama (and the carousel. Now I wonder how the actors rode the carousel looking emo and not silly at all). And yeah, I still remember the piano by the beach scene at the end. It was sad then, but if I watched it again I would probably thought it was absurd to have a person on the beach playing the grand piano while emoing.

Damn, I want them to end up together this time if she really takes the role.

omg this is hilarious. Sometimes I'm not a fan of how kdrama trends work (no variety! we get the same kind of dramas at the same time....), but this trend? LOVE IT. I think stairway to heaven was my first 'old school' kdrama that I watched, and it'll always have a special place in my heart - it made me cry BUCKETS (the coffee shop scene when she pretends!! - ME = BAWLING).

I'd love to see these two again!

Next: Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won

I find it extremely befuddling that out of all these reunions, no one has thought about doing Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye of Coffee Prince. I mean, I'd watch that drama if it was about watching paint dry. <3 it's so sad those two have never appeared together again, they had such ridiculously amazing chemistry.

OMG! PLEASE LET THIS BE ANOTHER REUNION! I WOULD DIE OF HAPPINESS.

However on the other hand say for example the drama is going down the road of CJW being a cold hearted bitch through the entire drama/ends up alone/never catches KSW's heart then I will truly die.

I think it would be painful to watch my first beloved and still one of my favourite OTPs have no feelings for one another in this drama.

I'm sure in another post I read there was going to be a third female, or am I wrong? I'm sure I read that he then meets female #3 who he falls in love with.

If CJW does take up the role then the writer must somehow write in how he slowly falls for the cold hearted heiress and write in a happy ending. WE NEED ONE! Especially after STH.
