Primetime television’s newest “bida-kontrabida” makes her grand entrance this Monday (Aug 25)
as ABS-CBN premieres the most provocative Koreanovela to hit Philippine TV — “Miss Ripley.”
Korean actress Lee Da Hae, who was first loved by Filipinos via the hit series “My Girl,” plays the seductive and deceitful Emily, a woman who will do everything she can to get what she wants, including rich hotelier Marco, portrayed by Park Yoo Chun of “Rooftop Prince,” “My Secret Love: Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” and “Missing You.”
To escape her dark past and her life in Japan, Emily returns to Korea to start over. In order
to do this, she tries to find a job but fails to get one since she only finished high school.
Desperate to be on top, Emily pretends to be someone else and makes hotel manager William believe that she is a graduate of the University of Tokyo. William then hires her for her ‘impressive background’ and good command of the Hakata language.
Greed further consumes her because apart from deceiving William so she can get a job, she also seduces him and tries to get him to fall in love with her. Just as when Emily gets her plans in place, Marco arrives to turn things around. After learning that Marco is the rich heir to a big hotel conglomerate, Emily sets her eyes on captivating his fortune and his heart.
Will she succeed in her plan? How will William react once he finds out about Emily’s infidelity? Who will stand by her side once the truth about her identity comes out?
Don’t miss the premiere of “Miss Ripley” this Monday (Aug 25) after “Aquino and Abunda Tonight” on ABS-CBN. For more updates, follow @Kapamilanovela on Twitter or like the official Kapamilyanovela Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ABSCBNKapamilyanovelas.
