Choi Ji-woo gives in to Temptation
We’ve got another dramaland reunion headed our way: Choi Ji-woo (Suspicious Housekeeper) has confirmed that she’ll be starring opposite Kwon Sang-woo (Medical Top Team) in his new melodrama Temptation this summer. The co-stars will be reuniting eleven years after their classic melodrama Stairway to Heaven, barely edged out for oldest reunion of 2014 by Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara in Fated to Love You. Now that there are so friggin’ many of them, I suppose we could start judging the re-couplings by all sorts of parameters, like Best Improvement in Chemistry.
The new SBS Monday-Tuesday melo stars Kwon Sang-woo as a man stretched to his limit in debt, who accepts an enticing offer by a wealthy woman. She clears his debt in exchange for some sort of mystery arrangement wherein he entrusts his body in her care (seriously, you should just tell me what the deal is because the vagueness is just making my mind go to places that aren’t suitable for television). Whether boy toy, butler, or beard, he’s married (and potentially to Yoon Eun-hye at that), which is why he gets stuck angsting between two women and trying to figure out what true love is.
Choi Ji-woo has signed on to play the chaebol temptress who was raised to take over her father’s company from a very young age, and has no interest in marriage or love, or anything that interferes with business. She’s described as a “woman of iron,” a workaholic, and a headstrong leader. She meets Kwon Sang-woo and his wife while on a business trip to Hong Kong and ends up making the hero an offer he can’t refuse. He can’t go back on that choice, and Choi Ji-woo’s character will begin to change radically as a result. Whadduya think: more tears than Stairway to Heaven? Is that even possible?
