Trans 110709 Park Yoochun Lee Da Hae Bring…

[Trans] 110709 Park Yoochun-Lee Da Hae Bring In Fans And Beverages To Battle The Summer Heat “It’s Hot, It’s Hot~”The leading roles of MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’ have been caught fighting a fierce battle with the heat.

These actors, who are filming for the drama despite the temperature inching over 30℃and the continuous monsoon rain showers, are fighting the heat in their own ways. The burning summer heat is one of the worst troubles for actors and thick, black umbrellas are a must for actors filming scenes outside in order to escape the blazing sun.

Lee Da Hae uses a thick, black umbrella to block out the sun while turning on a portable fan to cool herself down. It has been revealed that the cute and small portable electric fan is the item Lee Da Hae uses the most to survive the blazing temperatures. Whenever she’s waiting for her turn or taking a break, she has her fan turned on, chasing away the summer heat.

Kim Seung Woo is also another user of small, portable fans. To fit his title as a CEO of a hotel, Kim Seung Woo usually wears long-sleeved formal suits, meaning that he can’t help but feel scorched in the burning heat. Staff say that he has his fan turned on whenever he takes a break and cools his body down by drinking cool beverages.

Park Yoochun, who is more susceptible to summer heat than most, is having a hard time filming outside because he sweats a lot. The lighting crew sometimes fan him with their large reflecting plates while the staff members who move around with him fan his face continuously with their own fans. Whenever a scene is over, Park Yoochun fans his face with his own hands in an attempt to cool down.

The production company stated, “Though they face blazing temperatures over 30℃, the actors are working hard to film all their scenes as they fight off the summer heat,” and “They’re using various items such as portable fans and cool beverages to improve the completion of the drama. Please continue to watch over these actors who are doing their best.”

Translation 110530 Five Key Reasons Why “Miss Ripley” Should Not Be Missed

[Translation] 110530 Five Key Reasons Why “Miss Ripley” Should Not Be Missed

(Repeated Information Omitted)

From the use of “social issues” as its concept to the drama planning stage, as well as strong cast members and press conference, there has been a lot of buzz about “Miss Ripley,” but what kind of work is “Miss Ripley” exactly? We will now reveal one by one, the five points of attraction for this classic melodrama that has shaken Korea, “Miss Ripley.”

◆ An integration of “Social issues that rocked Korea”

In 2007, the “resume forgery” incident caused a great uproar in Korea, starting with a debate about one person’s “resume forgery,” which led to several famous people being forced to go public regarding the truth about their own education history, and also brought to light other social problems that were put up in public forums during this time. Korea’s societal view that the academics is everything, the corruption of the financial sector, and the society’s disregard for principles etc. Anyone who lives in this world would have gone through or been hurt by such issues, and all of the abovementioned social problems were present in the said incident.

“Miss Ripley” is about lie that was told by one woman, which led to her mistaken success, and also gives a realistic interpretation of the unjust rules that have been deeply embedded within society.

◆Lee Da Hae, who unabashedly shows the greed and desires of humans, and Kang Hye Jung, the embodiment of innocence.

In “Miss Ripley,” Lee Da Hae plays a character who “Lies so that she can live, and reaps great rewards because of it. However, she is not satisfied and shows more greed and desire,” the role of Jang Miri. Lee Da Hae said that at the beginning, she worked really hard to express the role of Jang Miri who “struggled to escape from living hell.” Wearing a red wig and tight-fitting outfits, running barefoot around the Japanese city center and such, Lee Da Hae focuses her entire being in acting, and her transformation is the most important point to notice in the drama.

Also, Kang Hye Jung, who has returned to the acting scene after 4 years, is increasingly piquing the audience’s interest with her transformation. Kang Hye Jung with her unique acting style will be playing the role of the innocent and adorable Moon Hui Joo, showing a pure and carefree side. The two ladies’ passionate performance will heighten the excitement of the drama.

◆Kim Seung Woo and Park Yoochun, the perfect image transformation!

Kim Seung Woo has shown various different images through dramas and movies. In this drama, he plays a man suspended in a loveless marriage, who later finds true love, the role of hotel manager Jang Myeong Hoon. Kim Seung Woo had said, “I really wanted to act in a classic melodrama, and I will realistically express the interpretation of a deep love by someone in their 40s”

Park Yoochun, who successfully played the character Lee Seon Joon in 2010, will be taking on the role of the “flawless” modern day Prince Charming, Song Yoo Hyun. Song Yoo Hyun is warm and kind, and firmly believes that Jang Miri, who “makes use of him for her own success” is the true love that he needs, and cannot help himself. In this second role, how will Park Yoochun convey the emotions of love and pain for his character? This is something to look out for.

◆Realistic representation of managing a luxury hotel

A top-class hotel with a luxurious atmosphere and rich culture. People who are in control of the 21st century world economy, culture, trends and other markets gather at this hotel in the city. With such a hotel as the background, a story about the career and love between the employees managing the hotel unfolds, and the greed and romance that lies behind the magnificent successes and failures are realistically expressed. Set in a hotel where all kinds of people come and go, the management staff fights for the survival of the hotel, and through this drama, we can see their honest emotions.

◆Choi Myeong Gil, Song Jae Ho, Jang Yong… Aided by the presence of veteran actors! Detailed completion of the drama!

We anticipate the heavyweight performances of Korean veteran actors, which helps the viewers immerse themselves in the drama. In the show, Jang Yong is the CEO of the global resorts conglomerate, Choi Myeong Gil plays the role of Park Yoochun’s mother, Song Jae Ho is the director of Hotel “A”who values Kim Seung Woo greatly, Kim Na Woon is Kim Seung Woo’s close friend and colleague, etc. These veteran actors create a strong backing, increasing the well-roundedness of the drama.

Translation 110517 Lee Da Hae – “Please Bear…

Translation 110517 Lee Da Hae – “Please Bear With Me Till The Fourth Episode.”

Lee Da Hae and Kim Seung Woo spoke like they were afraid of Yoochun’s fans, bringing about great laughter.

MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley” (Screenplay: Kim Sun Young, Director: Choi Yee Seob) held its press conference on 17 May, at 11am at the Seoul Banyan Tree Totel. Kim Seung Woo, Lee Da Hae, Park Yoochun and Kang Hye Jung were present for this event.

When introducing her role in the drama, Lee Da Hae said “Initially, I was very dismissive towards Yoochun, so I’m a little concerned. Everyone, please bear with me until the fourth episode and it will be okay.”

Following that, she clarified an earlier issue about the couple outfits, saying “Actually it wasn’t anything much, but when you play an on-screen couple it is easy to cause misunderstandings,” then she smiled and said, “There is a short hugging scene, but I kept worrying about the fans so I couldn’t commit to the scene.”

After hearing this, Kim Seung Woo quickly added “I beg the producers, even if we need to have a scene where our relationship is bad, please do not write in any scenes with me hitting Yoochun,” causing bouts of laughter from the audience present.

Following “The Duo,” and airing on 30 May, “Miss Ripley” is about a woman who happens to tell a lie which sparks off a string of lies, and is caught in a landslide which eventually leads to a crisis in which she could lose everything. It is typical melodrama about woman who is filled with greed and the two men who fall in love with her, the conflict and resolution of love and destruction.

News 110321 The Powerful “Ripley” Casting Lineup Synopsis…

[News] 110321 The Powerful “Ripley” Casting Lineup: Synopsis and Characters Revealed Kim Seung Woo—Park Yoochun—Kang Hye Jeong—Lee Da Hae, Confirmed as Leads of the Authentic Melodrama “Ripley”

The actors Kim Seung Woo, Park Yoochun, Kang Hye Jeong, and Lee Da Hae formed the “Ripley Line.”

They have confirmed to appear in the new MBC Monday-Tuesday drama “Ripley” (working title; writing Kim Sun Young, directing Choi Yi Seob) which will first air in coming May.

Ripley’s storyline is: A lie accidentally made by a woman bears yet another lies, and as a result the woman falls into the pit of lies, and in the end faces the risk of losing everything (and have everything disappear into naught) due to the lies. Also, it is an authentic melodrama in which two men who comes to love this woman of greed and desires struggle and reconcile between love and destruction.

Kim Seung Woo was casted as the hotel manager Zhang Myung Hoon with cool sensibilities who was born in a poor family and has lived recklessly with becoming the #1 as his goal. Zhang Myung Hoon is a man who faces the risk of having everything that he’s worked hard for to become #1 crumble as he comes to love Zhang Miri. He plays the role of a hotel manager for the first time in 10 years after the 2001 drama Hotelier.

Park Yoochun of group JYJ is generating high expectations by having been chosen as the son of the CEO of a famous Japanese resort agency, Yukata. In the drama, Yukata comes to know true love through Zhang Miri but also is of the tragic fate of having to become subjected to the risks of total destruction due to her. It looks that “Yoochun-Illness” which was set afire by the “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” will be re-ignited through Yoochun who will reveal himself as a true man.

Kang Hye Jeong steps forward as the kindhearted and innocent sister of Zhang Miri from an orphanage, Nha Hee Joo. In the drama, Nha Hee Joo comes to know her older sister’s corruption and fraud and in attempting to bring this to light falls into danger in the end by Zhang Miri. She comes back to the Television Screen 4 years after the 2007 KBS 2TV drama “I came to find the flowers.”

Lee Da Hae comes back to the Television Screen after appearing in the KBS 2TV’s “Chuno” in 2010, 1 year and 3 months ago. In the drama she will play Zhang Miri who, due to one lie, falls into a fatal (bottomless) pit and will show off her charms as a femme fatale.

The production company Curtaincall Media said: “The (most) powerful lineup of Kim-Seung Woo, Lee Da Hae, Park Yoochun, and Kang Hye Jeong is heightening the expectations of the drama’s degree of completion. Ripley will unite in one a solid and well-put-together screenplay, and sensitive and fashionable directing. A new (kind of) product which has not been seen before will be born.”
