In “Tempted,” a modern retelling of the classic French novel “Dangerous Liaisons,” the three actors play a tightly-knit “trio of troublemakers” made up of the rakishly charming Kwon Shi Hyun (played by Woo Do Hwan), the beautiful but possessive Choi Soo Ji (played by Moon Ga Young), and the free-spirited womanizer Lee Se Joo (played by Kim Min Jae).
The three young, wealthy, and attractive friends are also embroiled in a tense love triangle—Lee Se Joo is willing to do anything to win over Choi Soo Ji, while Choi Soo Ji decides that if she can’t have Kwon Shi Hyun, no one can.
The newly released photos highlight the trio’s close friendship, with the three leads laughing and joking around in front of their high school. In one of the stills, Lee Se Joo affectionately links arms with his friends and appears to be attempting to persuade them of something; in another, Choi Soo Ji has him in a firm headlock.
A representative for the drama remarked, “Because Woo Do Hwan, Moon Ga Young, and Kim Min Jae are of similar ages in real life, and because they had a lot of scenes to film together, they quickly became very close. [As in the drama,] they are also best friends on set. Their closeness seeps naturally into their scenes together. You can look forward to their chemistry, which is amazing both on- and off-camera.”
To find out what kind of trouble the three friends get up to, don’t miss the premiere of “Tempted” on March 12 at 10 p.m. KST! The drama will be available with English subtitles on Viki.
