More of Red-Headed Miri in Ripley

DAYUM, the Ripley team sure knows how to pique our appetite huh? DAYUMMMM, love that eye-expression there!

Man, I love how dark and twisted Miri is already. I know I wasn’t kind to our dear Da Hae in my last entry, but that doesn’t mean I’m not looking forward to her character Miri and how she’s gonna make this character one of a kind and different from other K-drama heroines.  Her character is known to be the antagonist in this drama, with her deceiving and lying her way up to success and her seducing 2 men to achieve her goals. I am not sure how the general public will receive this image of hers (altho I feel that the reception won’t be good), but I am all for her to take on this devious and manipulative role. The worst thing that an actress (as talented as she is) can do is to just stay stagnant and not do anything to harness or elevate her acting skills. She’s been quite uneven in recent years, sometimes showing mind-blowing performances, at times, just not nailing what she’s perfectly capable of. Which is why I am really really desperate to see her breakthru her safe-zone and step out from the pretty shell of hers. Throw away vanity, throw away your self-consciousness, just try to live and breathe your role. And you’ll take away the breathe of others.

You guys know X or Gansta Kitteh? The wisest of the wisest, the harsh-est of the harsh (hehe, miahn, I mean it but you’re awesome!)? I am always very appreciative of how he thinks of Da Hae. Altho she might not be the best or the most talented, part of me feels relieved that he still has faith that she can do it and top her generation with her talent. That is, if she is willing to take things into her hands and really consider GOOD projects. If your former co-stars Park Shi Yeon and Lee Dong Wook could do it, why can’t you? If a Jung Ha Yeon or Noh Hee Kyung is all you need, I’d pray 10 times a day for you to be cast in one of their dramas. Girl, you can do it. You definitely can.

Kayz, enough of my incessant ramblings and complaints.

Here’s a short clip I found of Micky and Da Hae filming: –


SMILES SO WIDE ^________^

They look so freakin’ CUTE together!


Ripley Trailers and Press Con Pics

You know I wouldn’t miss posting this yeah!

Press con for Ripley was held yesterday, with all the cast looking really radiant and happy! 😀 Da Hae looked good as usual (but I wish she would wear something else than black all the time), Kim Seung Woo dashing in blue, Kang Hye Jung adorable and Micky oh Micky, soooooo handsome and cute with that big wide smile of his <333.

Ripley Official Poster and Stills revealed

One word – WOW!

Looks like Ripley is fully geared up for its release end of this month huh? From its recent stills to the poster above, you know that they’re aiming for something different.  Just look at that! I have no words.

Ripley buzz continues to blow my mind, here are more individual Ripley posters of the leads

The Ripley Sisters in Action…

at the VIP screening of Goodbye Miss Ripley co-star Kim Seung Woo‘s new movie “I am a Daddy“. Awwww… how CUTE of them!

It looks like Da Hae has bonded well with her on-screen sister in Ripley played by the ever charismatic and glowing mommy Kang Hye Jung. She has even taught Kang momma her signature Yoo Rin gesture, BBASYA!

If anything, I’m just happy that Da Hae is getting along well with her co-stars and is all smiles. She needs all the fun and goof she can get. =D If Micky was there, it’d have been a perfect!

More pics from the screening:

I think Da Hae has lost weight again!?! Her face obviously shows as she looked chubbier in her last event appearance. I hope the filming of Ripley doesn’t wear her down too much. If anything, her man Micky is an even busier guy. (He IS the one who needs to rest I think).

But on other stuff, I love her whole chic get-up (if only she wasn’t this skinny) and BAG!!! Arrhhh.. girl is damn rich huh?

Mommy Kang on other hand, COOL!

Thank you Drama Gods!

for giving me this news!

Lee Da Hae and Micky Yoo Chun have been confirmed as the leads for MBC’s upcoming drama titled Goodbye Miss Ripley. F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!!! After weeks of speculations and here-and-there rumors (especially those surrounding Micky), we finally have a full get-go cast!

Thank you sooooo much drama gods! My earlier post worked! YAY!

This isn’t confirmed yet (?)  but news has it that the drama shall revolve around a girl who had to endure separation with her family at a tender age and who went on to suffer even more worse fate in her adopted family? Da Hae will play the titular female lead Miss Ripley.

I’m not dissing but doesn’t that spell CLICHE?? And MELODRAMATIC??

BUT wadaheck, I don’t care. And I really shouldn’t. Cos: No.1 – Da Hae’s coming back to drama. No. 2 – she’s being paired up with someone young and HOT (oh, and also REALLY popular for once). No. 3 – she’s obviously better when doing melo or angsty anyway.

Kim Seung Woo (IRIS, Hotelier) and Kang Hye Jung (Old Boy, Flowers For My Life) round out the remaining cast for the drama. Oopss, I didn’t mean to ignore them. I just get carried away when it comes to My Girl! I think they’re  solid actors to begin with, and maybe even better than Da Hae and obviously so compared to Micky. It’s definitely a good opportunity for the young ones to learn from these veterans (well maybe Kang Hye Jung‘s not so old hehehe..). To be really honest tho, my mind still doesn’t click or compute when I imagine all of them together in a scene. It’s all so weird. But hey, surprise me!

So far no confirmation of the writer or the PD yet. I truly deeply sincerely earnestly hope they get a good one on board. These 4 actors getting together in a drama is already odd (super odd in fact) to begin with. The last thing we need is a crappy writer or a incompetent PD to make things worst. *Drama gods, please grant me this one last wish. PLEASE!!!!*

The production company Curtain Call has announced that they will reveal more information about the drama in the near future and filming is scheduled to commence end of this March. Da Hae has also tweeted photos of her going thru the script a while ago. Drama should be a GO this time.

Goodbye Miss Ripley is scheduled to air this May, taking over The Duo when it ends.



And oh, today is definitely a good day. No doubt. The heavens gave me Cha Seung Won and Gong Hyo Jin! For Discovery of Love. I nearly couldn’t breathe. I nearly died. I could totally forgive the Hong Sisters for letting Seung Gi go, or perhaps the other way, totally thank Seung Gi for his letting go of the role which was allegedly written to fit him earlier on. All that paved way to the birth of what could be an ELECTRIFYING COUPLE (if their chemistry flies). I could not care less about what the story might be now that the characters/story have been re-written or whether it’s really been plagiarized or what not, the OTP already made my day. And if the story sux, the acting will make up for that. Guaranteed.

Thank you drama gods, once again!
