description: Hands down, Dokgo Ma Te (Jang Geun Suk) is the prettiest man in the world. And he knows it! Coupled with his ambitions of power, riches and splendor, Ma Te sets out to use his good looks for equally good money. Along the way, he meets Hoon Yoo Ra (Han Chae Young), an ex-heiress who senses a kindred gold digger in Ma Te and thus agrees to be his mentor in social climbing. Yoo Ra sets Ma Te on a diabolically comical mission to seduce 10 vastly different women: after "conquering" each woman, Ma Te absorbs their individual, specialized abilities. But when the poor, but adorable Kim Bo Tong (IU) surfaces with a huge crush on Ma Te, the rules of the game change. - DramaFever
You can watch Bel Ami online at DramaFever or Viki starting Wednesday, November 20 or wait for it to begin airing on KBS World starting Wednesday, December 4.
I have to admit, I think this role is tailor-made for Jang Geunsuk.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
