Ripley’s Park Yoochun-Lee Dahae, Goes into First Filming, Boasts “Perfect Harmony”
The new MBC Monday-Tuesday drama “Ripley”—Lee Dahae and Park Yoochun have begun their first filming. Ripley, which will air for the first time on the coming May 30th, has the best actors of the Republic of Korea confirmed to appear, forming the uber-powerful “Ripley line” and rising as the hot issue of the broadcast circles.
Lee Dahae has taken the role of Zhang Miri who falls into the fatal bottomless pit due to a single lie and plans emit an attraction of a femme fatale. Park Yoochun has taken the role of Yutaka, the son of a well-known resort company in Japan, and shows off the sides of a romantic man who gives it all for the woman he loves, Zhang Miri. The “powerful harmony” that Lee Dahae and Park Yoochun will show is already gathering much anticipation.
The first filming of Ripley which was proceeded on the MBC set on Yongin, Kyungkido on the 22nd of last month opened fire with the scene in which Lee Dahae and Park Yoochun first meet.
In the drama, Yutaka (Park Yoochun) is in the situation in which he has volunteered to live in a one-room examination-study-place (T/N: a shabby motel-like structure often used by poor students) in order to have experiences in Korea despite being the son of the CEO of a large company. The scene is one in which Yutaka runs into Zhang Miri (Lee Dahae) who is coming out of the elevator and and has a fateful meeting after he arrives in the place and unpacks the luggage he has brought from Japan and while he is talking on the phone with his mother Lee Hwa (Choi Myungil).
On this day’s filming, Lee Dahae had on a black baseball cap and leather jacket and had her hair in a seemingly-mussed natural long waves and gave off the aura of secrecy. Park Yoochun had a “straight young man” image, wearing a white V-neck shirt and a hood jumper and matching his jeans. That the mysterious combination that the two opened made the set heat up is the afterword.
In particular, even though this was the first filming Lee Dahae and Park Yoochun showed off a splendid harmony by pulling off the remarkable first meeting. It’s that the two put (into the camera) tough emotion-scenes naturally and quite encouraged the atmosphere of the film set.
Park Yoochun, who above all meticulously checked and again checked the script ahead of the first filming, showed his enthusiasm to complete the character of Yutaka by having in-depth conversations with the PD Choi Yisub time in between the filming and such. The message is that due to the enthusiastic attitude that Park Yoochun showed, the scene of the first filming became warm.
Ripley’s producer Curtaincall Media relayed: “Lee Dahae and Park Yoochun showed a perfect harmony which was hard to believe as their first time (filming together) despite the delicate emotion-scenes that were proceeded from the first filming. Since we see them pulling off their respective characters perfectly from the first filming, we anticipate that the best project will be born.”
Ripley is a drama in which one woman falls into the pit of endless lies by having one lie that she told unintentionally bear other lies, and in the end faces the crisis in which she may lose everything due to the lies. Further, it is an authentic melodrama in which the two man who comes to love this woman with greedy desires come to have a conflict and also reconcile in the space between love and destruction.
