    Another drama I’ll have to skip bc of lead actresses that I don’t like 🙁 Sorry WDH and KMJ I just can’t imagine Joy pulling this off. I wish an actual actress took up the role, I really would like to watch the two actors in a good drama, but the female cast isn’t doing it for me, so I’ll skip on this one for now.

    will definitely watch this…..excited for JOY to be mesmerized by WDH and vice versa…

    Pass Says:

    32 ep with Joy as the lead? no, thank you. i’ll pass this one for sure. Do Hwan is amazing, but i wish they hired a skilled actress to play the lead. the second female lead looks more promising than Joy!!! this drama will certainly have a terrible plot, terrible acting by Joy especially it’s a long drama. however, just for the fact that she’s an idol, the drama will be popular. this drama looks more like Heirs where the cast was full of A-star actors and actresses, yet it was a disaster plot and directing wise.

    #4 @Tiffany — If it is anything like the book or the 1988 movie “Dangerous Liaisons” brace yourself, your morality is about to be assaulted. . . lol! As this is kdrama-land it probably won’t be so brutal.

    The original story involves two women, one a young virgin the other pious and deeply religious and a cad who in a bet with a socialite set about to corrupt the women. However, most unexpectedly his conscience got the better of him and the socialite, in the end was forced to face public ridicule.

    That’s a short outline of the original. You can probably find a full synopsis on wikipedia.

    Hyeongnam Says:

    Wow! The girl who played the schoolgirl Mimi in the drama with the same name has blossomed.

    DeeAn Says:

    Just remembered, I ever watch hollywood movie “Cruel Intentions” staring by resse witherspoon and sarah michele gellar. This movie was also based from novel Les liaisons dengereuses.

    It seems the great seducer have the same plot with ‘cruel intentions’ (1999) with ending death of its main role

  23. 23
    Hyeongnam Says:

    #22 DeeAnn — “Cruel Intentions” is probably closer to this drama than the 1988 movie in which the setting was the period depicted in the book, as well, the characters were the same as in the book.

    In “Cruel Intentions” the Marquise de Merteuil was played by Sarah Michelle-Gellar. In this drama, she is Choi Soo Ji (Moon Ga Young).

    If the drama stays with the plot in the book, the game she initiates out of spite will cost the lives if the players.

    Someone remarked on a forum that while there were no sex scenes so far, the drama is implicitly erotic. The actors are beautiful and are filmed in a way that highlights their sex appeal. Lol!

    Ivis Guzman Says:

    Cierto estuve preguntandome por la historia donde vi esta trama, ciento parecida a la película estadounidense Cruel Intentions del año 1999 dirigida por Roger Kumble basada en la novela Las amistades peligrosas del escritor Choderlos de Laclos.

    dodee Says:

    Why is themain actress always have to look so vulnerable. Very naive.
    Come on now this is the 21st century. I love this drama but it looks like shes gonna fall really hard sad!!!

  26. 26
    WoodohwanFan Says:

    My gosh!!
    directing and editing sucks! This is a character based drama but there are too little closeups and they are flashed by too fast. The audiences need to know every micro expression that the characters make in order to get attached to this type of story. Specially on woo do hwan

    uculala Says:

    i dont really like the female lead, her acting is really odd. i hope that kwon shi hyun will be together with choi soo ji. i like their chemistry.

    Terumbu Karang Says:

    Can’t believe that I fall in love with the three musketeers.. Shi Hyun, Se Joo & Soo Ji.. If really based on that novel means everyone will ruin @ die.. Why i still watching it if the ending will break my heart into pieces.. I try to not watch it.. But the drama articles are everywhere.. Hard to resist.. Oh gosh be strong my heart.. They’re really the great seducer..

    OK OK OK Says:

    After Lead actor Woo Do Hwan kissed that weird old model in the club which everyone claimed she is beautiful except me, I lost interest in watching this drama. Why producer let him do this??? Is it necessary. It seems to me he got no character at all. Not like Mad dog – which he is sexy and in control….

    after watching episode 4, came here to check.
    More disappointed after knowing that lead actress is not Moon Ga Young as Choi Soo Ji (I prefer Moon because she is more beautiful and likeable).

    I will put on hold and see who ends up with Woo Do Hwan. If it is Joy, then I will not watch. 🙁
