[News] Yuchun confirmed as cast  for one of the main characters in traditional 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.”

There are alot of talks about Xiah Junsu taking part in musicial ‘Tears of Heaven’, is there any pressure for you to act in the same character as him?

“There wasn’t any pressure. Because the viewers have different view points of me and Junsu Hyung-Nim is what I think.

What kind of person is Xiah Junsu like since you have seen him up-closed?

“He’s really like a easy-to-get-along elder brother from the same neighbour. Although he’s 2 years older than me, he takes good care of me.”

You have a character that likes to win, so do you find that Xiah Junsu is your rival in terms of ticketing power and awareness?

“Nothing of that sort. In comparision to me, Junsu Hyung-Nim has started out his activities from when he was young and he has a lot of experience. I don’t have much experience as compared to him and I don’t have much on stage experience. I still have a long way to go in future.”

The power of Park Yoochun was immense.

The (write-in) impressions by the viewers of the KBS drama Sungkyungkwan Scandal which aired last year was over 401,000 as of the twentieth. Viewer Ms. Son Sukja became the 400,000 person to post the impressions with the words “So-sang left the place for a bit. (T/N: So-sang is a word which students use to refer to oneself; the phrase that Ms. Son used is one that Yoochun used in role.)” on the 18th. The die-hard fans of Sungkyunkwan Scandal poured out words such as “Sukja sangyu, congratulations” and “Son-sahyung, congratulations at 400,000.” (T/N: Sangyu and sahyung are both words used to refer the four leads in the drama. The meanings are explained later in the article.)

The viewer (write-in) impressions of the SBS drama “Secret Garden,” which went through the (ceiling of) the 30% ratings and was a sensation, is currently about 404,000. This allows the reader to guess just how heated the response of the viewers who liked Park Yoochun and others. Sungkyunkwan Scandal’s average ratings stayed at about 12.8% (according to AGV Neilson Media Research) but the loyalty of the viewers were so high as to be unmatched.

The viewers have had fun with “living the Sungkyunkwan life,” for instance greeting each other with words “Sangyu” and “Sahyung” which mean “student” and “sunbae.” Sunkyunkwan Scandal has long ended but they’ve become so immersed in the drama as to make the Viewers Posting Room as their main room of the house.

The Executive Producer of the KBS Drama Productions Lee Kang Hyun explained: “Among the many dramas that KBS produced last year, Sungkyunkwan Scandal was a success because the viewer response was so heated, and “King of Breadmaking Kim Takgu” and “Chuno” were successes because they had high ratings.”

Park Yoochun plans to appear in “Miss Ripley” (working title), the MBC Monday-Tuesday mini-series that is to air in May.


[T/N: C-JeS hasn’t made public its “final answer” on ” Miss Ripley even though it said it would last week (see here).]
