Ripley’s leads shoot their first scene together

Another contender for May Madness & Mayhem: Battle for Viewers’ Hearts is upon us. (I’ll rename it in June. I just need thirty days to come up with something.) Ripley has released stills of its lead actors Lee Da-hae and Micky Yoochun shooting their first scene together. (This time it’s him. I checked. Or… possibly his evil twin. Drat!)

Lee Da-hae plays Jang Miri, who is loosely based on Shin Jeong-ah, a now infamous professor who faked her academic credentials to climb the social ladder. Her character is described as a femme fatale, which is quite broad, but we can expect her to be a dark heroine, who “tells a lie that changes her life.” And then has to perpetuate that lie, which is always the problem with lying, isn’t it?

Micky Yoochun plays Yutaka, a Korean-Japanese hotel chaebol son. Hm. Yunno, on paper, this drama sounds EXACTLY the same as Lie to Me. Hotel chaebol son, heroine who tells a really big lie, then romantic entanglements ensue. Is Lie to Me just Ripley plus comedy? Or will Ripley be Lie to Me minus the fun?

To her credit, Miri doesn’t know that Yutaka is a gazillionaire’s son when they first meet, in this scene. But she reportedly tells an eensy weensy lie by mistake, which begets another lie, and another, and another, eventually snowballing into a massive avalanche of fraud that she can’t undo. Interesting. Yutaka falls in love with her (early on, pre-avalanche), which sounds like it might pose a tiny problem for him. Or yunno… be the source of his tragic demise. Life Lesson: First comes kissing, then comes background check, verified by a third party, followed by a waiting period of ninety days… and THEN comes love.

Ripley premieres Monday May 30 on MBC, following The Duo. If you’re making brackets, it’s up against Lie to Me and Baby-Faced Beauty. Place your bets!

I'll be watching this for Micky, but I'm really looking forward to lie to me the most.

Anyway, this makes me curious, micky's got a concert tour coming up, I'm going to see him on may 20th, and he's only just begun filming? Sigh, well I wouldn't be surprised if fainting and iv drips are involved soon.

Ah, I LOOOVVEE MICKEY since I've fell in love with him in my best group "DBSK", like, about 7 or 6 years ago!!! =D

But, unfortunately, I've already heard that DBSK was suddenly torn down & starts to separate away from other guys - U-Know, Changmin, JaeJoong, Junsu, and Mickey!
(I found out about this in the Asian New website, I think so.)
Luckily, U-know & Changmin are NOT giving up for "DBSK" together without JaeJoong, Junsu, and Mickey, of course, might have worked together and called this group "J-YP" Entertainment, I guess so. (I am not sure about this.) Well, I really, really, really miss seeing them together so awesome - DBSK, but it's suddenly changed now. =/ =/ =(

MICKEY, FIGHTING!!! =)

So... lets see.. somehow you got this misconstrued... so I will help ya out a bit :)

Ah, I LOOOVVEE MICKEY since I’ve fell in love with him in my best group “DBSK”, like, about 7 or 6 years ago!!! =D

*** Me too! Love Love Love Micky.. but more so in the last 2 years***

But, unfortunately, I’ve already heard that DBSK was suddenly torn down & starts to separate away from other guys – U-Know, Changmin, JaeJoong, Junsu, and Mickey!

*** Yes, saddly as of now (starting in summer 2009)DBSK as a 5 member group preforming TOGETHER does not exist. ****

**** There is DBSK v2.0 (HoMin aka YunHo/Changmin) & JYJ (not JYp) consisting of Jaejoong YooChun and JunSu. ***

*****According to Most Members statements they want to perform together as 5.. not just the 2 that didnt leave SM Ent.****

I really like SKKS and watched it a million times. For a first timer Yoochun was not so bad in that drama. LDH is just so so to me but I discovered and love Micky and I know that he will continue to grow as an actor . Im sorry I don't even know Kang Ji wan and dont like YEH . So I guess I will watch Miss Ripley as long as LDH does not irritate me.I'm rooting for YOOCHUN!!!!!

I'm looking forward to "I'm With Stupid" and "Lie to Me'. Don't know why but Ripley doesn't appeal to me, maybe cos of its plot and its title. Watched Matt Damon's "The Talented Mr Ripley" and was permanently traumatised.

Yea Matt Damon is Mr Ripley. I dont care to see another with the same title.

I think LDH is a decent actress but Yoochun is still a noobie and have a long way to go. I thought he did ok in SKKS but the two supporting leads Song Joon Ki and Yoo Ah In stole the show.

I just can't bring myself to watch Ripley though Chunie is in this. I have huge dislike for Lee Da Hae she has this negative aura that I just can't stand.

Sorry Chunnie babe! Not even someone as hot as you can make me watch your drama that has Lee Da Hae in it. That actress is someone I really dislike but good luck to your next project anyways.

Swallowed two episodes of Baby-Faced Beauty, gotta say Choi Daniel rocks!!! LMAO. It's getting serious in ep2, cuz baby-faced started to work on her career.

After seeing KJH 's make up and hair in LTM, he couldn't possibly beat Choi in BFB, Ryu Jin was good too, now waiting for his daughter to show up (Little Hye Mi 's in DH) which I'm sure she will lighten up the drama even more.
My money is on BFB. The teasers of LTM not really what I had expected of KJH, YEH looked tired already.

Ripley, I'm going to watch it for Micky, then may jump off after finish my MC dose, cuz my brain couldn't take more than double lies, snowball lies just too hard to follow. Plus LDH is really not me at all.

Ripley, I'm going to watch for Micky, may jump off after finish my MC dose, cuz my brain can't take more than double lies, snowball lies will be too hard to catch on. Plus melodrama is usually not my genre. Oh, Micky why this one?

I'm more interested in this drama than all of the others honestly, based on the storyline's true-life appeal for me. However, I am skeptical about Mickey's delivery and question his role as lead here and everyone else's "acting down" to make him look brilliant in the role when he may not be because they are so OTT or un-natural in their portrayals.

The first picture looks like he's talking to a mannequin.....

@Gladys ...yay to ahjumma power !!! My daughter is 15 and we are both both crazy over Yoochun.. We just discovered them thru SKKS and doesn't even know dbsk...

Now we both listen to Kpop , I'm from Canada and won't make any difference with the Korean rating but I spend crazy over kdrama DVDs!

Ripley definitely!!! But I'll watch the others if I have time, I always follow JB andGF recaps too that's actually how I discovered SKKS . So I can't wait what they will say about this , I'm hoping they will give it an objective opinions as they always do. So much entertainment in So. Korea sometimes I wish I live there:))))

@ Pepper,
I am glad to know that you and your daughter also get to know Yoochun through SKKS! My friend who is also an ardent fan of Yoochun through SKKS, and I plan to go visit the film sites of SKKS when we go to Seoul in June. We hope to stalk him when he is filming Ripley. We also plan to attend JYJ's concert in Busan as they cancelled their show in Singapore.
Yoochun fighting!

Haven't really been pulled by Lie to Me. This sounds interesting though. I'm just not in the mood for comedy and need something heavy right now. So RIPLEY is for me. I am liking Yoochun and Da Hae's look in the stills.

C'mon ~ we all know by now MBC goes vs. SBS most of time on similar not exact plots, i.e. President theme, Maid theme, Musician theme, Bodyguard theme, etc. so I'm not surprised at this turning up around the same time Lie To Me airs on SBS.

I don't know why many ppl give up on this drama only because their animosity over Lee Da Hae. T.T
You can't rashly judge before at least watching 3 episodes. Hahaha...XDDD
Talking about Lee Da Hae, I like her in spite of her great amount of plastic surgery she had done. BLAH! As for korean plastic surgery is not a big deal, roughly i said it's a customary thing to do.

However, I'm still looking forward to this drama no matter how the plot resembles to LTM. LTM is more romantic i think while Ripley is less. XD

Lets for a moment ignore the story lines and just look at the actors for the projects. Female leads: Jang Na Ra (BFB), Yoon Eun Hye (LM), and Lee Da Hae (R).
Male Leads: Kang Ji Hwan (LM), Micky Yoochun (R), and Choi Daniel (BFB).
Their Ranks (according to me):
Female:
Yoon Eun Hye (can do no wrong)
Jang Na Ra
Lee Da Hae

Male:
Kang Ji Hwan
Micky Yoochun
Choi Daniel (Unknown, First Lead)

Thus Obiviously Drama Ranks:
Lie to Me
Baby Faced Beauty(sounds more amusin than R)
Ripley
