A rep from Choi Ji Woo's agency YG Entertainment told TV Report on June 4, "Choi Ji Woo has received the casting offer for 'Temptation' and is reviewing it. It is not confirmed yet... She will soon make her decision on her possible casting for 'Temptation'." If Choi Ji Woo does accept the casting offer, this will mark her onscreen reunion with Kwon Sang Woo after 11 years since the SBS drama that started it all for many fans, 'Stairway to Heaven'.
Yoon Eun Hye's agency rep also stated, "It is only one of the productions that we are considering... We are carefully reviewing it." Yoon Eun Hye is in talks to play the role of Cha Suk Hoon's (Kwon Sang Woo) wife Na Hong Joo.
Meanwhile, Lee Mi Yeon rejected the casting offer for role of the mistress Yoo Se Young in the drama. Her agency rep explained to Star News, "Lee Mi Yeon has rejected the casting offer for 'Temptation'... Lee Mi Yeon had a lot of thoughts about her character, and she is also reviewing other productions so after much thought, she decided to not take part in ['Temptation'].
The drama is by PD Park Young Soo and 'Dr. Jin's writer Han Ji Hoon and portrays the story of a married man who has a relationship with another woman for money to pay off his debt. 'Temptation' is set to premiere following 'Doctor Stranger' this July!
