After stating the possibility of an extension, the production team of the MBC Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss RIpley” have decided against an additional four episodes.

A representative from the production team stated that due to conflicting schedules of the drama’s lead actors, and other issues concerning the production, the decision was made to stick to the original schedule. According to the representative, “Originally, the drama was supposed to have 4 extra episodes added due to overwhelming popularity, but because the female main lead Lee Dae Hae has schedules in China and the male main lead Park Yoochun’s physical health is not at it’s best since his JYJ World Tour activities coincided with the filming of the drama, Miss Ripley will only go up to 16 episodes.”

“Miss Ripley” airs every Monday and Tuesday on MBC and it is set to finish it’s sixteen-episode run on July 19th. MBC’s upcoming drama “Kye Byuk“, will air immediately after “Miss Ripley”‘s run.
