I realized that I didn’t actually mention any updates about the casting news for Lee Da-hae in MBC drama “Money Flower” so here I am even if it is quite late and you may actually know all about it 😀
Although there was no official news of the decision but from later news about the drama, Han Chae-ah is up for the female lead role instead and Jang Hyuk is up to take the male lead role (although news and progress seems a bit on hold for the drama right now because of the strike MBC employees are doing)
If you have read my initial post about this casting possibility, you would feel that I wasn’t that excited about the project either because of the production team behind it, or how long it is or being MBC drama weekend drama. And honestly I did feel some negative tone in the initial reports about Da-hae casting either from her own agency or from MBC which made me not that surprised as I read another name up for the role later on.
Even though I can’t wait to see our girl acting again and understanding the fact that she really needs to comeback ASAP (to not be more forgotten from the scene) but the project didn’t excite me at all and knowing that Hyukie was in talks for the male lead, it is another reason that makes me think it is for better that she won’t be doing this drama.
Don’t get me wrong I am a Hyukie fan and love his pairing with Da-hae but seeing him with her for the 4th time is not something that I am that looking forward to witness and I can guess this would have been other viewers opinion or even from the drama producers as well.
I wish the best of luck for Hyukie in this drama and at the same time hope that there is a better project out there for our girl’s comeback with more of a fresh story and pairing.

Lee Da-hae updated her Instagram on the 4th with pictures of her in a pool on a big red lips float and sending a kiss. Our girl surely love summer and want to enjoy swimming more ❤
The caption said:
Enjoying summer to the end! #WaterPlay #Summer #Goodbye 😭
From her messages with friends on this post, I think this was taken in a hotel in Busan (might be wrong though) and also can’t be sure of when this was but it is great to see her smiling happily 🙂
On another news, ANYA Cosmetics posted 2 selfies from Da-hae while using their V-line lifting mask, always love her fresh and bare face. Check the photos below ^^
As always I didn’t keep track of the date to celebrate the blog anniversary on the 9th of August and when I realized it, I honestly thought of not doing any special post about that like last year since again I don’t have much to say and don’t feel that I accomplished that much this year as I keep offering less creative posts which is something I am not happy about 😦
But then I came across this ranking of top 75 Korean Drama Blogs done by Feedspot by chance a couple of days ago and found my little blog there ranked 36 in the list and what is more impressive is that it is the only blog there that is actually dedicated to only one actress/actor!!!!
I am really honored and have to thank all the readers and fans who are following, reading and sharing posts of this blog and are the reason for this ranking and I wish I can come out of this writing slump and do more valuable posts in the near future. Hopefully that happens for a good reason (you know what I mean, right?) ❤
It has been quite sometime since I have posted on the blog, RL have been quite busy lately and I didn’t have a lot of energy for writing 😀
But finally I am having a few days vacation starting today and seems our girl is rewarding me as well on this vacation since she finally updated us today on her Instagram after few weeks of no signs of her 😉
We saw signs of Lee Da-hae returning back to Korea a couple of weeks ago and now she looks fully back on her schedule with her again spending time in flower arrangement classes ❤
Da-hae, cute dog and flowers is a lovely combo to look at and she looks really pretty with that look and dress although still can’t see her face clearly 😦
Check more updates of her during the past weeks below
Finally we are getting some potential casting news of our girl, YAY for that even if nothing is written in stone yet ❤
Reports came out yesterday that Lee Da-hae is in discussion to star in a new drama.
The drama in the talks is a new MBC weekend drama (MBC AGAIN?! SIGH!). The drama is called “돈 꽃” (Translated: Money Flower) and should follow “Bad Thief, Good Thief” which is now airing and that sets its premier in early November.
The drama script is written by Lee Myung Hee and will be directed by Lee Hyeong Sun whose both resumes aren’t really impressive (rather worrying for me TBH). No details mentioned about the story or the heroine role offered to Da-hae.
Da-hae’s agency said that she has indeed received the script but it is one of several works they are reviewing so nothing is confirmed and also MBC said that the drama is still in process of casting and currently discussing with various actors and Da-hae is one of the candidates for the role so till we have confirmed news I am taking this with grain of salts 😉
If confirmed, it will be Da-hae’s first Korean drama in more than 3 years since “Hotel King” in 2014 (which was also a MBC weekend drama). But honestly even if she didn’t, I am quite happy that we are back talking about her domestic comeback and now I am hopeful again that it will be soon either with this drama or another one.
On another news, our girl updated her Instagram again from her vacation in the states. Check it below ^^
Seems our girl is on a travel roll!!
This time Lee Da-hae traveled with her mother to San Diego, California and she updated her Instagram with some lovely pictures.
I love her fresh summer look and smile in there and Da-hae omma also looks great and colorful. Hope they enjoy their time together ❤
I am happy that our girl keep updating us about her whereabouts, it helps during this drought time ~~
Our girl is back to the gym!!
Lee Da-hae updated her Instagram today saying that she started doing EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation) training with a picture along her personal trainer. Seems EMS is the latest trend these days since it is said to be effective with less time than usual working out.
Da-hae said that it is rather hard but since it is only 20 minutes, she can do it and at the end of her message she said “Let’s be healthy“. I am happy she is again active with her exercises since it has been sometime since we saw her updating about that and her fresh look in the gym is always something I love to see.
Also she updated us with more pictures from her latest vacation in Saipan. I specially love her picture with the fish as she was snorkeling ❤
