Teasers for "The Great Seducer"
“The Great Seducer,” which is based on the classic French novel “Dangerous Liaisons,” tells the story of the reckless young men and women who find themselves entangled in a dangerous game of love and seduction. Red Velvet’s Joy stars as Eun Tae Hee, a high-achieving college student who isn’t easily swayed by men, while Woo Do Hwan plays Kwon Shi Hyun, the charming rake who embarks on a mission to seduce her.
Kwon Shi Hyun is part of “the trio of elite troublemakers,” along with the beautiful Choi Soo Ji (played by Moon Ga Young) and the free-spirited ladies’ man Lee Se Joo (played by Kim Min Jae). The three friends are embroiled in an ongoing love triangle. Kwon Shi Hyun and Choi Soo Ji are also the primary instigators of the characters’ games of seduction. The two make a “dangerous bet” with far-reaching consequences that neither of them could have imagined.
Meanwhile, Eun Tae Hee’s best friend Go Gyung Joo (played by Jung Ha Dam) harbors unrequited love for Lee Se Joo, while the disreputable Lee Ki Young (played by Lee Jae Kyoon) pursues Eun Tae Hee with less-than-honorable intentions. Choi Soo Ji also has her own history with Lee Ki Young, and she is determined to exact revenge on him at all costs.
Lee Ki Young’s mother wants him to marry Oh Ha Ni (played by Park Hye Jeong), but the chart shows that Choi Soo Ji manages to manipulate the unwitting Oh Ha Ni for her own purposes.
However, things don’t end there—the main characters’ parents have their own history as well. Eun Tae Hee’s mother (played by Jun Mi Sun) is the first love of Woo Do Hwan’s father (played by Kwon Seok Woo), and the two still harbor feelings for one another. Woo Do Hwan’s father and Choi Soo Ji’s mother (played by Kim Suh Hyung) are also planning to enter into a marriage of convenience for business reasons, causing the two friends to suddenly become step-siblings.
The Great Seducer (also known as Tempted) premieres Monday, March 12 on MBC.

I'm really looking forward to this. I don't expect it to be good, but I hope it's entertaining. Heart eyes at Woo Do Hwan.
