SBS schedules Temptation to follow Doctor Stranger
Strangely, the summer SBS Monday-Tuesday slot is the only one that hasn’t been filled months in advance for some reason (though it could be argued they’re not late so much as the others were earlier than usual), but the network has announced the title that will follow Doctor Stranger this July. The new drama called Temptation will be a hero-centric melodrama about a man in his thirties. Does it seem like dramaland is more testosterone-filled than usual these days? Must be the year of the male melo.
Temptation comes from Yigim Productions, the studio behind Empress Ki and I Summon You Gold. The drama will be about a married man who falls into enormous insurmountable debt. In order to repay it, he makes a shady deal wherein he “entrusts his body to another woman.” Buh… does that mean what I think it means? Given the setup, an Indecent Proposal-style arrangement seems somehow less farfetched than enslaving him to ten years as her secretary or something.
While under said bodily contract of an undisclosed nature, he then meets another woman. Because two love interests is so old hat? Anyway, the drama will be about the man’s work, love, and marriage, which I’m guessing are three entirely different lives he leads (with three different women, I’d wager). It sure sounds saucy, but then, you wouldn’t make a drama called Temptation about a boy scout, now would you?
Casting is underway for a thirtysomething leading man to headline, and the production plans to complete casting by the end of this month and begin shooting in June. Temptation follows Doctor Stranger in July.
