"After watching a lot of foreign productions, I realized that vampires ... can be considered sexy in the West," said Lee. "As a result, I tried to showcase my base natural side in the ruthless ... role."

The male lead character of "Orange Marmalade" is played by actor Yeo Jin-goo, formerly a child actor. Yeo, 17, will play a model student and "good boy" at the high school.
