Lee Da Hae leans into Park Yoochun’s arms, acting out a hugging scene that renders the audience unable to breathe.
In the upcoming episode of MBC’s new drama “Miss Ripley,” there will be a scene where Park Yoochun saves Lee Da Hae, who is being chased and holds her as she shivers in fear, lightly stroking her in consolation.
In the drama, Jang Miri makes a clean break from her dismal past in Japan, and comes to Korea to escape from the clutches of Hirayama, and to start a new life. However, she sees Hirayama, who has come to Korea to capture her, and flees in fear.
From the first time Song Yoo Hyun sees Jang Miri at the dormitories, he had already taken a liking to her. He happens to see Jang Miri as she is fleeing, and runs after her to help, saving Miri from a dangerous situation. Then, he holds the scared and upset Miri lightly in his arms, calming her down. This can be considered as the first scene where Song Yoo Hyun expresses his liking for Jang Miri.
On 16 May, it was said that Lee Da Hae and Park Yoochun were at some train station in Seoul, and had spent over 8 hours filming intensively for the sake of this chasing scene. The timing of the train departing , Lee Da He fleeing, and Park Yoochun’s entrance had to be exactly executed, so the actors had put in a lot of effort to make this scene.
For the sake of the commuters of the train, it was impossible to stop the trains just for a shoot. Therefore, a perfect mutual understanding in timing between the two actors was required. Lee Da Hae and Park Yoochun had practiced numerous times to establish the understanding before starting the actual shoot, receiving praises from the production crew on scene.
Also, the two actors had to continuously run, then switch to a hugging scene in an instant, so it was hard to get the feelings right. However, Lee Da Hae and Park Yoochun showed a “perfect harmony” and managed to get the director’s OK without any NGs.
The production company said, “In the opening scenes of the drama, from the moment where they met for the first time at the study dormitories, Song Yoo Hyun had inexplicably fallen for Jang Miri, who had his birth mother’s eyes,” and “Jang Miri has always been cold towards this boy from the dormitories, Song Yoo Hyun. After this scene, please look forward to whether she manages to start a “love line” with Song Yoo Hyun, or otherwise.”
