A much better version of Les Liaisons Dangereuses than the USA version. The people are prim and proper with wacky hairdos and and funny hats. All of them are beautiful, much better looking, which makes it more fun and more engaging. It's also interesting as a peek into Korean historical values as they discover Catholicism. Do-yeon Jeon is fabulous.
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.
