Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Mi Yeon Courted to Join Kwon Sang Woo in SBS’s Temptation

It’s still quite a ways away from Dr. Stranger ending its run on SBS Mon-Tues but it has been strange (har har) that the network didn’t have any definitive drama lined up to take its place. That changed this week as SBS announced a melodrama called Temptation will be taking over for the strange doctor come July. Likely this production has been in talks for some time and the news just hadn’t leaked yet because a day later Temptation quickly secured its leading man in Kwon Sang Woo. He’s had a pretty good track record with SBS, Yawang (Queen of Ambition) and Daemul were both hits, and going back even further there was even the classic Hallyu melo Stairway to Heaven. His last drama was actually last year’s star-studded medical bomb Medical Top Team over at MBC so maybe Kwon Sang Woo need be sticking with SBS more. Temptation is described as the story of a married man who falls into great debt and in order to save his family and livelihood, he makes a deal with a rich woman for money in exchange for his body.

Not sure what about his “body” she is after exactly, but Kwon Sang Woo does have an impressive physique that’s for sure. Does she want to pimp him out? Does she want him to be her personal kept man? Does she need a chauffeur or butler? There will be two leading ladies in the drama and the two actresses currently in discussions for the project are Yoon Eun Hye in the role of Kwon Sang Woo’s wife while Lee Mi Yeon is being courted to play the rich woman who “tempts” Kwon Sang Woo with her bundles of money. Writing the screenplay will be the pen behind Dr. Jin and Time Between Dog and Wolf while the PD directed Family Honor and Oh My Lady. Nothing at all about this drama either in story, casting, or production team jumps out at me except for Yoon Eun Hye’s name being tossed in the mix. I’m torn between wanting her to do something different and more mature and this sounds like it could be, and then not wanting her to take it because it sounds rather dull and tawdry, not to mention I’m indifferent to Kwon Sang Woo. Hopefully the full cast will be confirmed soon so I can decided whether I’m tempted to follow along or not.

Will this be the cast of Temptation? Are you tempted if it is?


Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Mi Yeon Courted to Join Kwon Sang Woo in SBS’s Temptation — 42 Comments

    • Same for me. I hope YEH pass this too. She had been very inlucky in her recent dramas. I dont think this drama sounds interesting. The writer pen DR Jin, one of the most boring and strange drama I have watched. I do hope to see YEH in a drama winner too. I wonder when will that be?

    • Me too!… I am not in favor of this drama but I am not against
      with Kwon Sang Woo because he is a great actor but not this time
      might be in near future… Hopefully Yoon Eun Hye will pass this
      drama cause there will be another good story which really good
      for her. I wish she will be pair like Hyun Bin, Song Seung Heon.
      But if she will accept this drama then as a fans I will respect
      her decision & support her… Cheers!.

  1. I am thinking this will be a pass for me either way. The storyline just doesn’t really intrigue me and KSW’s melo acting hasn’t really connected with me since SWTH. YEH hasn’t had a really good project in a long time. I just hope she can make a major comeback in a big way on the small screen. This type of drama smells of something that could really make a turn in the wrong direction. I will wait and see since nothing is confirmed on the ladies. Could end up being good… Who knows.

  2. Girl, I nearly had a heart attack when I saw my YEH’s name with something related to drama…
    Thank God she’s back in the news in dramaland.

  3. Koala did you make a typo? Did you mean Yoon Eun Hye to play as Kwon Sang Woo’s ‘wife’ not ‘life’?

  4. NO. YEH please pass on this one. I want YEH to pair with Lee Minho. Give us some bad ass action and sizzling kiss.

  5. I read that YEH will play two roles in this one… I’m thinking the wife dies and KSW meets her doppelganger. I can’t really see YEH not being the female lead; I would drop this one like a hot potato if Lee Mi Yeon’s character is somehow end game. Uggggh.

  6. I will definitely watch this one since i love almost KSW collaborations with SBS, especially Daemul and also because the PD is from Family Honor…one of the best Korean Drama that ever made…

  7. I gotta say that I watch most anything for Yoon EUn Hye (even commercials…gasp), but i’m not a Kwon Sang Wook fan. Plus O really hate melos. This really doesn’t interest me, and with some melos I am interested ti watch he end, but not this one. The only thing I find remotely interesting is she would be on Running Man. YAY lol. And for her to play a mother

  8. Could be she obsess with his body so she need a personal Chip & Dale dancer that can do lap dance anytime for her 🙂

  9. I really miss Yoon Eun Hye! I will respect and support her whatever her decision is. If she will accept this offer I’m hoping that this drama will have a high rating and YEH shows her great acting.

  10. The story sound has a lot of emotions for a man who save his family to exchange his body with rich woman. I guess maybe two woman will fall in love with a man KSW,and he will be in difficult situation.

    I am so excited for YEH come back with new drama. Just wait to see it.

  11. In all her drama,Yoon Eun Hye always play a role in good character (honest, poor without need rich man, and friendly to other people, and hard working). Therefore, she can not take a role in rich woman because I believe a rich woman will be a bad woman.

    Reading a story, I can see that rich woman will help a man with a condition take his body. Then, his good wife will be very sad and lost a husband. It is sad and emotion story.

  12. It will be a good team up if YOON EUN HE joins with Kwon Sang Woo, these two ACTOR’s are noted to be great, surely many will follow this drama if materialize. Hoping for the best!

  13. YEH to pair with KSW???? Please nope for me. I am not a fan of KSW. I would luv to watch YEH with LMH, my fav couple. YEH, please pass on.

  14. Seriously, this melo-drama didn’t catch my attention at all but later when i read this article. I think i get tempted coz’ YEH’s name. It’s big risk for her, she got a new role (not rom-com like before) & more mature, i hope she’ll expand her acting quality. So… i’ll watch her drama no matter its rating like i watched MHIYD last year.

  15. For my opinion, her quality acting is very nature and has great chemistry to any actors. I do not sure that she will get good rate on this drama or not. However, I will respect on her decision.

  16. I love to see YEH again in small screen, but not too excited of this one. Whatever she decides, I will support her 100%. Just want to see a new YEH on a drama, a great one.

  17. The storyline does not sound interesting. and besides KSW’s acting is ……….. YEH, I hope you would pass this drama, I believe you have better selection of your projects,

  18. This is like the Male version of Demi Moore’s ‘Indecent Proposal’. YEH is Ok as the young wife, she’s not that old enough either to be the rich Sugar Momma! Would love to see Yoon Eun Hye & Kwon Sang Woo work together. Just try it, it might work. It always takes risk in learning, being too safe just limits a person!

  19. I am still waiting for the news if YEH accept or reject this drama. I can’t wait to watch Yoon Eun Hye in a new kdrama this year.

  20. Koala dear, i am waiting for u to cover the story of YEH new movie with Ha Jung Woo and Ha Ji Won. Coz i am dying to know her role in that movie

  21. YEH have accepted offered a wife of KSW. I know she will be a smart and good wife,and her husband will love her even he live with other rich woman. So excite!!!!
