  7. 7 : ayy Says:

    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.

  9. 9 : Douglas Min Says:

    Still waiting, Woo Do Hwan is good actor Kim Min Jae too
    I’ve see dramas of Moon Ga Young so I know see will do well in this too, Joy will do her best so those saying she can’t pull this off wait and see

  10. 10 : Aniyah Says:

    Do Hwan oppa was in Mad Dog.. if you haven’t seen it.. you should watch it he can seduce anyone.. idk about Joy.. since she’s young and all and they always give them innocent young girl vide.. but Do Hwan like omg he’s hell fine and a really good actor!

  11. 11 : OK OK OK Says:

    Woo Do Hwan ssi, I am waiting……. 😛

  12. 12 : DeeAn Says:

    Joy?? Who is she? Never heard before. Does she good in acting?? Why I doubt her. Anyone can explain me. I know 2 lead male actors, they good and have caracter.

  13. 13 : GoneNotAround Says:

    having second thoughts if I should watch this. not sure about the female lead’s acting. havent seen any drama she was in.

  14. 14 : Dramacool Says:

    hope it coming soon!

  15. 15 : junk Says:

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

  16. 16 : 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.

  17. 17 : DeeAn Says:

    Have been watched first episode, didin’t understand whats the story about. I think it will be low rating drama

  18. 18 : Jukbang Says:

    The last two comment is TRUE.

  19. 19 : Chickenn Says:

    Hump.. At first, when I thought Moon Gayoung as lead actress .. I was excited to watch it.. But then I heard Joy is gonna be the lead actress.. Mehh .. I think I should skip it.. Totally not intrested.. Sorry.. Just a slight of my thought..

  20. 20 : Hyeongnam Says:

    #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.

  21. 21 : Hyeongnam Says:

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

  22. 22 : 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!

  24. 24 : 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.

  25. 25 : 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

  27. 27 : 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.

  28. 28 : emili Says:

    somebody knows why is beting his life? he just seduces her. i didnt get what happens if he wouldnt succeed?

  29. 29 : 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..

  30. 30 : 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. 🙁

  31. 31 : tioY Says:

    the second lead female character is more interesting… and she is too charming to be the second lead… wrong cast…

  32. 32 : Anggie Says:

    Oh JOY… The worst acting i ever watched in korean drama

  33. 33 : Pinkash Says:

    I’m only here bcus I heard Joy was acting in this drama. Reveluv forever 💕💕💕

  34. 34 : jarlieuy Says:

    ratings game me nega impact….not worth risking…
    please do baby step…..

  35. 35 : instagram online Says:

    I know about the drama because I quite like Red Velvet and Joy. I have not watched the drama yet, but it seems she needs to practice more and choose a role which is more suitable to her real character, such as a smiley younger sister. 32 episodes is too much, I only watched less than or equal 20 eps drama.

  36. 36 : Tulip Says:

    I see no chemistry between the leads and Joy really need some training

  37. 37 : booboo Says:

    you realize its technically 16 episodes right? this drama is bad but to complain about how many episodes it has before even watching it is pretty braindead imo.

  38. 38 : Neea Says:

    love love love the chemistry between Shi Hyun & Soo Ji, piping sizzling hot. It’s WOW!!!

    Too bad SooJi can’t get the guy since she is second lead

  39. 39 : Sirk19 Says:

    Actually this drama is great! I love the plot and even the cast. I dont know why the others didn’t like the lead actress well in fact she impressive in her role unlike the other who are terrible in acting. I Iove their chemistry and cant wait for next episode! IM GETTING HOOKED! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    PS. Dont care the ratings. This drama is popular outside sokor. In my country it is one of the most viewed and popular drama. Keep fighting! ❤ – love from PH

  40. 40 : John Says:

    very bad and very boring drama

  41. 41 : DeeAn Says:

    Wow, been here and as I thought before, this drama got the very very low rating, how bad.
    Poor do hwan, he even very tempting in his previous action drama “Mad dog”, “the great seducer” ruins him, made him falling to the lower level. Hoping next, he more wisely to accept the role and script.

  42. 42 : RonnieG Says:

    I LOVE this drama. I’m watching all the way from Atlanta, GA in the USA. It was hard for me to find out how to watch online but once I did, I was hooked. The two leads are fantastic and have great chemistry. I love the story line, just wish there was less of the parents. I don’t understand why the ratings are so low and I hope the series continues to the end because I want to know what happens next!

  43. 43 : grundlefrog Says:

    I LYK this drama, at first i underestimate JOY as the lead of this Drama, but in the end, JOY and DO HWAN have great chemistry. the storyline really good. can’t wait to see next episodes

  44. 44 : Hyeongnam Says:

    As I see it, Soo Ji’s problem is one of entitlement, resentment and bitterness, a trifecta guaranteed to keep “love” away. She feels if Shi Hyun is to love at all, his love can only to be for her.

    However, Eun Tae Hee’s sincerity and honesty won over Shi Hyun. I guess the object lesson is; be honest always and try to always do good. And don’t mess around with people’s loves.

  45. 45 : Lila Says:

    I think the low ratings of GS have to do with the story that has no appeal for Korean public as has for western viewers since is inspired by a western book. Unfortunately the script is flawed, without consistency and that is reflected in the characters of this drama. I think the lead young actors do their best in portraying their characters but they cannot do wonders with a weak and confused storyline. Anyways I believe they are really talented and have big potential.

  46. 46 : Yeri Anika Says:

    Watching because of Kwon Shi Hyun. Oppa fighting! <3

  47. 47 : Diana Says:

    I did not recognize Joy at all. She looks so different than when she was on “We Got Married” with Sungjae. I had to look up to see who she was on the line up of the actors/actresses.

    Soo Ji is a spoiled brat.

    I like Kim Min Jae and Woo Do Hwan – first time I have seen them.

  48. 48 : kseries Says:

    I LOVE this drama, also want to share with others.

  49. 49 : cjay Says:

    i thought this was shown on a cable channel…geez! the ratings. i love woo do hwan since he reminds me of kim woo bin. but the lead actress and storyline doesnt interest me. will skip this

  57. 57 : Lila Says:

    I’m glad that at the end everybody was alive and made a living in their own ways. This is all I can say about the last two episodes.

  58. 58 : silverswan Says:

    On the whole it is not a bad drama. It’s about rich youngsters and apart from being hurt they felt better if they hurt another person. It is somehow a good lesson to all. The main actress is cute , pretty and she’s good in her act, and the main actor though I had never watch any of his drama he acts pretty well too.
    The ending is a bit too rush and wish it was more detailed . Anyway thank you for putting up this good drama and it’s story that teach everyone a lesson

  59. 59 : rhoda mendoza Says:

    the couple shi hyun and tae hee are awesome i havent watch the final episode but i really love shi hyun i’ve been following his dramas i have just finished mad dog his acting is real good no overacts just natural for his face I LOVE how you act keep up the good work OPPA pls more dramas for do hwan sarangge from philippines
    i really love korean dramas

  60. 60 : Samah Says:

    Just finish watching #The_Great_Seducer and it is a very very good drama and has many great OSTs <3 <3 <3
    Why this drama must have bad rating ? I think this drama has a great plot twist that we'd never expect !

  61. 61 : Mey62 Says:

    Maybe actually the story was good. But in my opinion, the male and female lead actors didn’t have a good chemistry after all+at any scenes they didn’t have a good expression/emotion. Perhaps its because the actors in this kdramas still newcomers. WDW a.k.a the male lead actor, I only watched his drama once, that was Sweet Stranger and Me, he have a good talent then. I think KMJ a.k.a the second lead male actor have better acting in the other dramas, lets say Romantic Doctor Kim and Best Hit, maybe its just because he was second not the lead. Also MGY actress, I have seen her in the other dramas, I think this is the best acting she ever performed and better than the female lead actress in this drama. Till the last episodes, there was conflict on, one thing I couldn’t expect from any kdramas I have been watched. Sorry to say that I have only got one point from this drama, that was a group of rich chaebol take a revenge for fun and receive the aftereffects. However the story based on the french novel I never read it before. Anyway, the OSTs especially the instrumental songs that really nice to listen. I wished the actors have another good dramas to watch..

  62. 62 : Sundance Says:

    Ep 22 – 23

    Joy finally looks like herself. Her Botox must be wearing off. From the beginning of the show, her face looked frozen and she looked completely different. When they are so young, is it necessary for them to do Botox???

    Moon Ga Young as Choi Soo Ji is doing a great job.

    Kim Min Jae and Woo Do Hwan are very good looking young men.

  66. 66 : Snowqueen Says:

    I think the first male lead actor is not handsome and it is the major cause of the worst ratings.
    He is not fit for the role of the great seducer.
    Two female lead actresses are beautiful.
    Especially Moon Ga Young is shining.
    The second male lead actor is fit for his role.
    The performance of the lead actors and actresses is good.
    I am really sorry that the select of the first male lead actor is a mistake.

  67. 67 : Snowqueen Says:

    I remember ‘High Society(SBS、2015)’ watching this drama.
    ‘High Society’ is also a drama of the love game of the upper class.
    About ‘High Society’、I think the first lead female actress is not
    Two male lead actors are handsome.
    The second female lead actress is beautiful.
    If I were the director、I would make Im Ji Yun the first female lead actress.

  68. 68 : Kay Says:

    This drama was quite messy in its execution, but there is a decent angsty story to enjoy if you like teen melos. It has its pros and cons, so you’ll just have to try it to see if its your style.
