This drama is such a waste of time. If you haven’t started yet, please don’t even consider watching the show.
The only thing this drama has to offer is the attractive cast. That’s it. Nothing else to see there.
The story is based on the French epistolary novel “Dangerous Liaisons” by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. I absolutely love this book. This book, although written in the 18th century, has been the subject of many adaptations. One of the best adaptation is the 1988 movie with Glenn Close and John Malkovich.
The story goes like this in the K-drama version: Three childhood friends, somewhat entangled in a love triangle, are known for creating a mess everywhere they go. Choi Soo Ji, Kwon Si Hyun and Lee Se Joo, are rich heirs who live carefree and purposeless lives. Things take an interesting turn when Soo Ji asks Si Hyun to help her take revenge on her ex-boyfriend.
The revenge plot is simple: Si Hyun will have to seduce the ex-boyfriend’s first love and forever crush, Eun Tae Hee. Of course, this wouldn’t be dramatic enough if Si Hyun didn’t end up falling in love with Tae Hee.
