Based on the novel 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses,' this film is set in aristocratic 18th-century Korea at the end of the Chosun Dynasty. The irresistible temptress Lady Cho asks her cad of a younger cousin, Jo-won, to deflower the innocent young Soh-ok, who is to become her husband's concubine. But, his attentions soon shift to the graceful and aloof Lady Sook, who lives according to her convictions as a Catholic. Jo-won becomes obsessed with seducing this chaste woman who has remained celibate for nine years since her husband's death. However, conquering the most virtuous woman in the land proves to be more difficult than Chosun's notorious playboy expects.Written by

I was charmed by the eyes of Bae Yong Joon. They sometimes made me laugh, but sometimes held my heart so tightly. The movie showed us the way of thinking and the beautiful fashion of old Korean people. Strangely the music was western classic, though it matched the movie very well. The original story seems well-known because it was made into several movies already. I haven't seen them yet. But I think this Asian style version is a good work. I don't understand Korean language but the sound of it is very comfortable for ears to hear. So I was charmed through both the scenes of Bae Yong Joon's eyes' action and the voices of the actors and actresses. It is very sad love story. I liked it.
