MBC’s “Tempted” has succeeded in gaining the attention of viewers with its interesting twist on romance and packed storyline. Here are four things to look out for as the drama approaches the second half of its run.
“Tempted” tells the story of Kwon Shi Hyun (played by Woo Do Hwan) who tries to seduce Eun Tae Hee (played by Red Velvet’s Joy) in order to win a bet to marry his soon-to-be step-sister Choi Soo Ji (played by Moon Ga Young).
1. When will Kwon Shi Hyun tell Eun Tae Hee the truth about the temptation game?
What started out as a game of seduction has turned into a blossoming relationship between Kwon Shi Hyun and Eun Tae Hee. A part of him can’t fully revel in his newfound love due to his secret that he only originally pursued her to win the temptation game.
In a previous episode, as he looked at his first love, Kwon Shi Hyun said to himself, “When winter returns, will it be alright for me to be by your side? One day, you’ll find out about the enormous lie inside of me. I’m scared for the first time.”
Will he be able to overcome his fear and tell her the truth? Will she still be able to stay with him after finding out the truth?
When will Kwon Shi Hyun and Eun Tae Hee find out about their parents’ relationship?
Kwon Shi Hyun and Eun Tae Hee’s fate stems from their parents’ generation. His dad Suk Woo (played by Shin Sung Woo) and her mom Young Won (played by Jeon Mi Sun) are each other’s first loves. After reuniting in two years, they realized that their love for one another remained the same.
The only one who knows about these two’s relationship is the daughter of Suk Woo’s fiancee Mi Ri (played by Kim Seo Hyung) and Kwon Shi Hyun’s best friend Choi Soo Ji. It’s unknown when others will find out about Suk Woo and Young Won’s relationship.
All his life, Kwon Shi Hyun has sought revenge after seeing his late mother suffer from his heartbreak due to Suk Woo’s other woman. Eun Tae Hee also became cynical about love after seeing her parents divorce after watching her mom choose her first love over her husband.

Kwon Shi Hyun’s mom passed away two years ago in a car accident. He, however, found out recently that there are no records of an accident under this car and that police records state the victim as a female high school student instead of a middle-aged woman.
When he went to Mi Ri to ask her about this, Kwon Shi Hyun was shocked to hear that his mom was the assailant of a hit-and-run which was covered up by his dad’s company JK Group.
Eun Tae Hee was also involved in a hit-and-run two years ago which gave her trauma about car accidents. As the drama continues, the two car accidents are coming to a head. What is the truth about the hit-and-run accident? What effect will it have on Kwon Shi Hyun and Eun Tae Hee’s relationship?

The rebellious Kwon Shi Hyun, Choi Soo Ji, and Lee Se Joo have been best friends since they were young and shared everything with one another. Since the temptation game started, Kwon Shi Hyun hid the fact that he was falling in love with Eun Tae Hee from his two best friends.
He also set boundaries with Choi Soo Ji by telling her that they’re just friends, but she was still unable to sort out her feelings for him. Lee Se Joo has also had a crush on Choi Soo Ji for a while and has finally begun to act on them.
