"Miss Ripley" Premiers On August 25 On ABS-CBNThe hit koreanovela "Miss Ripley" will premiere on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida on August 25 (Monday) as the newest "bida-kontrabida."
Lee Da Hae, whom Filipinos first loved on 2005's "My Girl," will play the seductive, playful and deceitful Emily. She will do everything in her power to get what she wants, even if it means trampling on others' hearts.
On her way to the top, Emily will break the heart of the rich hotelier Marco (Park Yoo Chun) of "Rooftop Prince," "My Secret Love: Sungkyunkwan Scandal" and "Missing You."
Emily has a dark past in Japan. In order to escape it, she returns to Korea to start over. She tried to find a job, but repeatedly failed to do so because she only finished high school.
Desperate, Emily pretended to be someone else to make hotel manager William believe that she is a graduate of the University of Tokyo. William hired her because he was impressed by her background.
She then seduced William and made her fall in love with her, so she can remain on top. However, Marco returned into her life. He's the rich heir who owns the hotel where she and William work. Emily then turned her sights on Marco after learning his background.
"Miss Ripley" airs this Monday (August 25) after "Aquino and Abunda Tonight."
