Synopsis

Two very different men fall in love with Jang Mi Ri, a woman whose life is a complicated web of lies, propelled by her greedy desires that stem from an unfortunate childhood. Jang Myung Hoon is an ambitious hotelier who maintains perfect control of himself and his life, while Yutaka is the warm and gentle heir of a Korean-Japanese hotel conglomerate. Their love for Mi Ri and her tragic ambition eventually leads them down the path of destruction.

Miss Ripley is based on the real life case of Shin Jung Ah, a university professor and art curator at Dongguk University who was discovered to have forged her creditials in order to get hired, with the help of her boyfriend (then presidential secretary) Byun Yang Kyoon, and embezzled funds from the art gallery’s corporate sponsorship.

    As always, Korean drama ends with a dissatisfying ending. Do the directors /script writers/ producers ever learned? Majority of The fans do not like A cliff hanger ending. We want happy ending! Got it!

    end Says:

    or me, i am fine with the ending. i think the title itself already gives a clue about it : who I loved – that is past tense “loved” … that means it is over now, isn’t it. to me, a story does not have to have a happy ending where everything is all wrapped up in a package nicely, just like life itself – there is not always happy ending, the point is that what we have learnt from all that has happened, and how we grow – as is depicted by the characters there, they all grow, for instance Mi Ri became a better person..and personally i prefer as it is, i.e. Yutaka and Mi Ri goes separate ways.

    Syaera Says:

    I’m agree with end; there is not always happy ending. The story tells us a precious lesson to take note. Mi Ri will enjoy and find peace in this life ways better than before.

    A unique korean drama.

    Me and my boyfriend are addicted to the show. Lee Da Hae is my favorite korean actress and she is absolutely stunning; acting is superb as well.

    Didn’t get to know Micky Yoochun till watching this show, and i think he looks cute. The OST of the song sang by him is… just so romantic!

    Wished the ending between the both of them is good… but as per reviews, ending are sad.

    Also, a thumbups for the Director Jang, i think he’s rather pitiful in the show.

    Nevertheless, i enjoyed this unique korean drama!

    Wish to see more of lee da hae’s korean drama.

    I like Micky alot and was wondering if this show is good. Heard from my friend that it is pretty slow. Is that true?

    yooin Says:

    I hate this ending. Why Yukata not seek for Mi Ri if he said he would wait? It may be hard for Mi Ri to start for him but it will sure be easy for Yukata to start.
    I hate this ending. It seems no one has love after all, even the mother.
    Start shooting for Miss Ripley 2 please. Let the two lovers be together.

    rory Says:

    I love this drama..Normally I don’t like such a melodrama, sometimes it tooks 2,3 weeks for me to finish watching but for Miss Ripley I just took only 2days!!!I love LDH portray her role, I just imagine if I was in her shoes, how will I survive..that makes me cry a lot watching her past life..
    But how come LDH doesn’t win any awards in MBC award?It’s not easy to portray as a Jang Miri but LDH did really well..
    Btw, Micky Yoochun was so cool and pretty smart..I love him, actually I watch Miss Ripley because of him but suddenly I got hooked by LDH’s acting..She’s great!!! Thumbs up!!!

    FightingKD Says:

    I don’t claim to be a KD expert, having seriously joined the bandwagon last year thanks to The Princess Man. And so, I tend to use TPM as a benchmark. In my personal view, Miss Ripley has somewhat fallen short of the “bar”. Let’s face it – many watch Miss Ripley for LDH and MYC, not necessarily in that order, with the ratings reflecting it too. I’m equally guilty as I wanted to see MYC having enjoyed his performance in Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Rooftop Prince. Since he sang in this drama, what more a reason not to? Having watched 4 eps, I however don’t think I’ll be sitting through all 16. 25% along, the storyline has somehow not developed well and is not showing much promise. The Ripley character is supposed to be always on the lookout, smoothly moving up the foodchain and planning ahead before being found out. Miri seems to just be a bunch of nerves, jumping at every incoming fax or company restructuring exercise. Somehow she seems more reactive than proactive, more of covering up rather than making things happen to get into the inner circle of living the high life. I’m sure there’ll be some good stuff coming up but I think my time and bandwidth can be better spent for other KDs. If there’s a possible sequel, perhaps the powers that be should cast MYC as Ripley. Usually portraying the good guy, MYC’s strengths of calm, cool and level-headedness yet living in planned and organised deception should be a nice challenge for MYC. Perhaps a retake on the stereotype chaebol – looks and sounds like chaebol blood but not quite. Can MYC make us love him even though he’s the bad “good” guy? Some saving grace to Miss Ripley is probably MYC’s singing 1 of the OST. Altho’ there were some less than kind remarks on KSW being too old, his character as a successful hotelier in the industry has to be of some age. Can’t exactly cast a 20+ young chappie and convince the audience that he has sufficient experience running a hotel which boasts in RVIP/VVIP services. Good job on the casting director for getting a top-mgmt sorta fella as Director Jang.

    i like the drama of MISS REPLY…. they say that boring the ending is not happy…. but for me my rate is outstanding 10/10…. i have a lot of DVD in Korean Drama and MISS REPLY is the one who touched my heart… when i saw Mickey Yoochun sing to Lee Da hae i cried a lot and touched my heart…. because of her mother why suffered Meri in her life… and there is 3 boys who love for meri.

    kjob Says:

    I totally agree with FightingKD’s synopsis. Remember, it is a melodrama based on a factual real person who lied her way to the top while embezzling money — serious deception and stealing. I’m only on ep. 7 as the first 6 made me too sad to watch; however, to me, the reason the lovers will not be together is “trust” in all of the relationships (mother, lovers, etc.) was lost. Trust is extremely important in business and in relationships. It takes time, talk, and forgiveness for the trust to rebuild and then you are not reassured of a reunion -hence hopefully no Ripley #2. An American film, The Talented Mr. Ripley, will leave you much the same way … demanding justice and fear for the characters still on the screen. Sigh…going back to humorous KD dramas.

    tigerb Says:

    am watching this drama, not done yet. just checking how many posts are there for this series compared to “cheongdamdong alice”, where i thought because of the postings that drama was controversial. guess, either back then the current viewers were not interested in this drama, to think that this series had higher ratings than CDDA? different people have different tastes.

  23. 223
    tigerb Says:

    a love that could never be, maybe in korea. the title of the series is ‘loosely’ borrowed from a western made movie i watched a long time ago. i remember after i finished watching that movie, that the guy was so smooth, he could do what he wanted that the title was apt “talented mr. ripley”. for some reason i admired that character role to be able what he did, not that i condoned his actions, i knew of course it was all fiction. but in this series, the leading character actions elicit hatred for what she did to two people who truly loved her and to a real friend. while she had no compunction of her wrongdoings when infront of those people she stepped on, later she no longer had control of things happening. i thought that it was a simple plot, but it cannot be a korean drama if there is not a twist, and you’d think that you can understand why she did what she did. still, she deserved one year in jail (isn’t that too short?). am just glad that the writing did not allow her to go unpunished, so there’s lesson to this drama. the ending has better than expected. and i am glad too that the story was not dragged further. it is worth watching!

    tigerb Says:

    there is only one character i thought was very good in his role, ‘hiriyama’. also this gave me the chance to hear park yoo chun sing an ost that i read somewhere he composed. the first time i saw the lady who played ‘mi ri’ was in a drama first telecast in 2005. looks like she has grown up, in height and in looks, her acting was better too. just commenting!
