    I really really like it..:))
    I’m so happy & contented with ending.
    Another drama & movie for choi ji woo & kwon sang woo.:))
    To the director & staff thanks so much

    Lilian Says:

    In my opinion, what divides so drastically the audience of “Temptation” it’s Hong Joo’s attempted suicide. Meanwhile a part of viewers considers it as a wife’s ultimate act of love, others consider as an unacceptable act of betrayal towards Suk Hoon and her family.

    Here it’s Hong Joo’s adios letter to her husband:

    “Suk Hoon ssi
    I’m at peace now. I decided that I won’t try so hard meaninglessly,
    That’s why I don’t have to hold on to any regrets or resentment.
    If you look beside our wedding album, you’ll find my insurance policy.
    I hope you can protect my dad’s place with it. That’s all I can do for him.
    I’m asking you kindly to do that for me, Suk Hoon.
    I know you went through a lot, I’m sorry I couldn’t comfort you and hurt you instead.
    Please forget everything and forgive me.
    I was a happy and blessed woman to be your wife.
    Thank you for our wonderful time together.
    You’ll be forever in my heart. Good bye Suk Hoon.”

    I think that having this letter before our eyes without any images; maybe will help some of us to understand better.

    Snow Says:

    @Lilian, I read it a number of times. This is the writer’s fault for having such an ambiguous letter. I took it that she felt she didn’t fulfill her duties as a wife by not being able to have a child with the number of miscarriages. I also take that she was saying her death would cause him pain and she’s apologizing for it. She’s also writing this with the mindset that he will read this letter after her death.

    You are right, this caused a divide between the groups. Her wanting to commit suicide made no sense to me and was a gimmick used by the writer. If it had been SH who had lost everything, including his business partner, would have made more sense than HJ.

    I truly think the greater majority wanted to find a reason to reunite the stars from Stairway to Heaven. This drama didn’t work for me.

    It tried to take something ugly and make it beautiful, but it just didn’t work. There are some beautiful dramas airing now, but Temptation wasn’t one of them.

    jhez Says:

    i don’t like the ending. its worse..the fact that the third party won. Hong Joo deserves to be happy because she offers the real love towards his husband but was being betrayed and hurt. So sad for her.

    AHHHHHHH….why don’t i watched it earlier…it’s my fault that i got affected by all the negatives reviews…about this drama…..where the TRUTH is this drama is a’ two thumbs up” for me……this drama can give us a lot of insights and lessons in life….

    1 million for three days….HAHAHAHAhahahahaha…….it made me laugh out loud…..its not what many people think…

    I liked the ideas and twist of the author….many of us think that it was cha suk hoon and yoo seo young is at fault ….but i think it was na hong joon who started it….she had a collapsed trust for her husband……

    Sandy Says:

    This drama was the worst bit of carpola that I’ve seen in a while. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything this horrible and mean before. Where evil wins and someone with a sweet heart and kind spirit is made to suffer to the bitter end. I hated the husband stealing mean/evil woman and the cheating weak husband. You have to be a fan to like this drama. On top of that, it ended with a lot of loose ends and no closure on a lot of things. HATED IT with a passion.

  12. 812
    Snow Says:

    Love it!! They didn’t make it even a little close in getting on the list for best couple. Because they were a terrible couple with no chemistry. I’m so happy they didn’t make it! Already knew they wouldn’t. This drama was just terrible in the message it contained.

  13. 813
    Lclarakl Says:

    Have to agree with you @Snow I was happy to see that this drama didn’t win any awards. It was terrible. Why the two main actors signed on for this drama is beyond me. Maybe if the writer had stuck to the original plotline it may have been okay, but when they tried to turn this into a love story; out of selfish greed, selling of one’s self for money, and just a mean cruel woman who demeaned a kind woman until the very end (not to mention bought her husband), this mess was truly a mess. Glad it received the award it should have—NOTHING.

    NagNag Says:

    I MUST applaud CHOI JI WOO ssi & KWAN SANG WOO ssi for both their decisions to take up the lead roles of this drama which had such controversial yet realistic story-line ; LOVE is lost if NOT treasured, same for Loved Ones. Get REAL !

    Their passions in acting & their willingness to try out different challenging roles without having being stereotyped , are truly COMMENDABLE . Both of them are indeed REMARKABLE as Actors , NOT superficial just going after popular awards .

    Thunderbane Says:

    Great drama I like it alot! And I have to admit that Choi Ji Woo is phenomenal. She gave us an amazing performance from minute 1 to the very end. Love it, and this drama is in my favorites list!

  16. 816
    Snow Says:

    I have to laugh at people who are fans that try to put a twist on how these two loved each other. They so blinded by being a fan, that they even call this realistic. The most unrealistic character in this drama was the wife. I don’t know any wife in real life would have tried to protect the cheating husband and the woman he cheated with by keeping silent. The fact that her husband sold himself for money with the belief when he took this job that he would have to sleep with this woman, painted him as weak. He was so fearful of possibly going to jail for 3 years or less that he was willing to sell himself. The question is, what would he do if faced with the same situation with SY 5 years from now–if she’s still alive?

    I love that the ACTOR, Kwan Sang Woo called his character a bad guy. A character he had a hard time portraying. I guess the actor like a lot of us saw that the wife was willing to give up her life for her husband to live in peace. He in turn, despite being extremely loving in the beginning, within two days gave up that love for money. The sad thing is it showed he was nothing but a gold digger and that is why he wanted to be with his sugar momma. I found it funny that after the actor forgot he was married and had that passionate kiss with Choi Ji Woo, they didn’t have another one after that. Oh, they may have kissed, but it was definitely your typical drama kiss after that.

    I love seeing behind the scene clips of the actors interacting together off screen. It was very easy to see who kept flirting with whom. I’m sure his wife in real life took note too.

    lgunasetiawan Says:

    Just don’t understand what the author wish to deliver when a single, rich and powerful woman stealing somebody husband and live happily ever after. I don’t think it is logic.

    Sweetpeaga Says:

    What a depressing drama. It appears the husband was nothing but a fake from the very beginning. I have to make sure I look up the writer’s name in the future, I definite want to avoid any of their future work. I hate this drama with a passion. ***spoiler***** The wife didn’t deserve this treatment. Not only that, it is very clear that the writer lost their way in this drama. Funny thing is, to punish the cheating woman, the writer gave her cancer that spread. End the end, the wife is the only one who could walk with her head held high.

    I am confused about something. In the drama bio, the writer stated that the wife made up the 1% that made her husband complete. However, in watching this hodgepodge drama, that point was never seen. I hated the husband more than all the characters.

    Gret Says:

    Wotta!! lols I enjoy reading all these and the show itself too. Fighting SY!! People should understand that wife should be a bit tolerant in order to keep the relationship together. She should have been forgiving in order to keep the marriage.

    Gretcaution Says:

    This drama taught me one thing about writing, that there’s limit for everything. I’m actually writing a story which has a dark story line but after reading all these comments I became hesitant to continue it further.

    Lynn Says:

    Hong Joo was bad enough when she was just the bland, poor-me wife, but she’s starting to really grate on the nerves now that the writer’s decided to give her a vindictive, evil streak.

    There’s basically been no logical basis for the transformation either. Hello, you’re the one who pushed for the divorce and continued thinking the worst of your husband. Yes, he had a crush, but he never acted on it and was willing to fight it and make things work between you two. You, on the other hand, gave up before anything even happened, then blamed everything on Se Young before deciding to marry a rich man purely for the sake of taking revenge. Am I meant to feel sorry for you?

    -saw it soewhere and I got to agree!!

    rani Says:

    I like hong joo and min woo couple, but i hate yoo seo young and cha suk hoon

  23. 823
    Snow Says:

    This drama is a hot mess. The wife is the only person I felt sorry for in this drama. The husband came across as someone who was willing to sell himself for money. He automatically assumed that he was being paid a million dollars to sleep with the woman and he agreed to do it. By the 3rd day of their “business transaction” he took her on a date and fell in love with her. His wife had asked him not to do it, he did it anyway. People taking about this is a beautiful love story because the woman paid for a man to lure him away from his wife that showed them up both as awful creatures. The writer giving the cheating woman ovarian cancer that is spreading does nothing to appease my detest of both the husband and the woman he ended up with.

    People blaming the wife doesn’t make sense to me. He had no respect for his wife. He accepted the deal thinking he would have to have sex with this woman; nor did he listen to his wife. I hope I never see these two actors in a drama again. In looking at a few of the behind scenes, she, the actress, appeared pretty flirty with her real life married co-lead; I’m sure the wife had something to say about it because the way he kissed her in following episodes changed dramatically from the first kiss….lol!

    The writer made a mess of this drama and I will avoid future work.

  24. 824
    Snow Says:

    Rani @ 822, I agree with you. I liked Hong Joo and Min Woo couple too and hated that the writer had to try and make them worse than the cheating couple in order to glorify their romance. Sadly, the bought husband couple didn’t work for me at all. This drama also ended with a lot, and I do mean a lot of big giant gaps in the story that were left unanswered. It appears the writer gave up and realized they were writing crap.

    Salma Says:

    Good drama ,script, actors, writter
    The above comments want Perfect life but the life has Unexpected surprise

    I loved this drama, second time I love drama & characters have betrayal after “on the way to airport ”

    That means goog job from all the writter,

    Salma Says:

    Good drama
    I loved it

  27. 827
    Lclarakl Says:

    Salma @ 825, I don’t think the above drama want perfect life, they want realistic. Realistic life the wife wouldn’t have kept quite about the woman who offered her husband money for a weekend–nor would she have kept quiet about the weak, spineless, money chasing husband. Nor would the way the wife, who was kind and sweet, seek some stupid revenge plot.

    The writer, and it was very obvious, tried to make the cheating couple appear not so bad by trying to make others worse around them. I’m glad that the writer gave the cheating woman cancer that had spread because she was evil to go after another woman’s husband as a game–what goes around comes around.

    Glad you loved this drama with the wishy washy husband, but I thought it had a lot of unanswered questions and a plot that was stupid and made zero sense.
