It may have been tempting to fit another role into her busy schedule but Yoon Eun Hye has finally decided to decline a role in the upcoming drama “Temptation.”
The star, known for her roles in “Coffee Prince,” “Lie To Me,” Missing You” and “Future’s Choice” was up for the role of Kwon Sang Woo’s wife in the upcoming drama “Temptation.”
But the actress recently decided that she could not fit it into her filming schedule for “Chronicle of a Blood Merchant,” a film directed by actor/director Ha Jung Woo that also stars Ha Ji Won. The film tells the story of a man who sells his blood to provide for his family.
That’s interesting because in “Temptation,” Kwon Sang Woo plays Cha Suk Hoon, a man who is so burdened by debt he can see no way out of it. To protect his family from the disastrous consequences of his debt he accepts an offer that may ultimately threaten his marriage. He sells himself to a wealthy woman.
The drama reunites Kwon Sang Woo with actress Choi Ji Woo, his co-star in the Hallyu hit drama “Stairway to Heaven.” Choi Ji Woo plays the heiress who offers to help Kwon Sang Woo’s character, pay off his debt in exchange for his body. Her character has grown up thinking money can buy everything so, she’s sure she can buy his love.
While Yoon Eun Hye has said no to a role in “Temptation,” CNBLUE’s Lee Jung Shin recently said yes. He will play the role of Na Hong Kyu, the younger brother of the character Yoon Eun Hye considered playing. Since he is unemployed, Na Hong Kyu takes a part time job and discovers the secret that Cha Suk Hoon shares with his chaebol sponsor.
Lee Jung Shin had his first acting role in the successful weekend drama “My Daughter Seo Young” and last played a warrior in the 2013 historical drama “The Blade and the Petal.”
Actor Lee Jung Jin, last seen in “The Fugitive: Plan B” and “A Hundred Year’s Legacy” is also considering a role in the drama. He is considering the role of Kwon Sang Woo’s rival although it is not yet known whether he will be a rival for the affections of Choi Ji Woo’s chaebol character or Cha Suk Hoon’s wife.
The drama will air in July following the finale of “Doctor Stranger.”
