TvN’s K-drama has fans excited for the small-screen return of the actor since her last role in It’s Okay to Not Be Okay. Eve’s first teaser video has fans in a frenzy over Seon’s deadly and chilling gaze that harbors anger, sadness, and determination.
A woman loses her family and gets caught in a nasty divorce lawsuit in ‘Eve’
Seo stars as the main character Lee Ra-el who lost it all. She was born to two almost perfect parents, but everything went wrong after her father’s death. Ra-el grows up to become a beautiful woman with cunning, wit, and skill. Behind her beauty is a mastermind planning the perfect revenge against Korea’s elite.
Ra-el has been planning her revenge for 13 years, and her target is Kang Yoon-kyum (Park Byung-eun), the CEO of LY Group. He is one of the prime culprits that caused her family’s demise. By her side is Seo Eun-pyeong (Lee Sang-yeob), an orphan who has become the youngest member of the National Assembly.
Ra-el is in a divorce lawsuit with the whole nation watching in the midst of it all. Eve’s official poster reveals Seo as her character looking deadly and beautiful. According to Soompi, the poster reads, “At the hottest moment, I will take you down in the coldest way.”

Fans get their first taste of what to expect from the romance K-drama. Seo takes center stage in a beige jeweled gown. She is twirled and carried around a dance floor with immense emotion and passion. But it is all a show to get the person she is after.
As her character, Ra-el, Seo’s gaze shows pain disguised with glitz, glamour, and beauty. The teaser shows her tantalizing Yoon-kyum as planned to begin a cat and mouse chase. She knows how to gain his favor with subtle touches, lust-filled gazes, and a kind smile. But it is all rouse.
Ra-el dances with conviction and passion, but the ending scene says it all. As the dance ends, her partner’s back faces the audience. Ra-el’s gaze over his shoulder changes to fierce, deadly, and cold. Like a predator fooling its prey. Attention to detail is seen as her hands that were once caressing turn into claws.

The teaser is only a snippet of what can be expected, but fans are jumping with joy.
Fans on Twitter comment, “#SeoYeaJi is so BACK, and NO ONE CAN STOP HER,” and “An Icon. We are looking foward to see it!”
If Seo can enthrall fans with a poster and teaser, fans are in for a rude awakening when tvN debuts Eve’s official K-drama trailer.

It is still unknown what streaming platforms will air the drama.
