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 ❤
Check the pictures below
Seeing the latest updates from her friends, seems that Lee Da-hae was already heading back to Korea today after 4 days she spent in Saipan.
Love those pictures she posted today on her Instagram, Da-hae on beach can never go wrong for me ❤
Check other pictures with her friends below ^^
After over a month since her last update on SNS, our girl is back again updating us.
Lee Da-hae updated her Instagram yesterday with the above cute video of herself and her friends Maggie and golfer Kim Soo Ah, love to hear her laugh again and the three of them looks so cute ^^
In her message, she said that her big hat was in the way to show her friends’ faces, lol 😀 and that she is happy travelling with her girl friends ❤
Seems she traveled together with Soo Ah a day before to Saipan and met with Maggie who is there for work, they brought her some gifts and enjoyed time together.
Check more updates from the girls as they have some fun ^^
It is already over 4 months since Lee Da-hae guested in tvN variety show “Life Bar” and I have promised to recap it and finally here I am 😉
I was hoping we can get English subs for the episode somehow to make this a better and more accurate recap since it is not every day we get to see our girl doing such interview and this is one reason for the long delay but unfortunately that didn’t happen and not sure if someday we will get that 😦
But tvN Asia did air it with English and Chinese subs but the channel is not available for many to watch or record and upload online but if anyone of you who are reading this and did get to watch the program with English subs, you can always leave comment and enlighten us on what was missed in this recap, will really appreciate it ^^
Luckily our friend Ely from Da-hae Soompi Thread did watch the episode subbed in Chinese on tvN Asia and did a fast recap for us there (Big thanks to her ❤ )
I really like this interview and how Da-hae was brave enough to say out loud many things about her career struggles in recent years that we might had a feeling about as fans.
So hope you enjoy this recap. Lets start!!
[Ely’s recap is the main source of this post in addition to other translated news and I dedicate it to K Vo who have been waiting and asking about it (sorry again for the delay)]
This is a very special day and of course deserve celebration!!
It has been 15 years since the viewers first watched Lee Da-hae as Lee Eun Joo in MBC special “Park Jong-cheol, A Fine Young Man” and with this start the actress journey began with all its ups and downs.
One thing for sure, is that despite it all she still delivered a lot of great acting moments that made us laugh, cry and feeling like one with her characters.
At this point in her career, our girl must have many worries and thinks a lot of the path she wants/can walk in from here on. The industry now is more into casting younger actresses with most dramas having young female roles and so it is not easy for actresses like Da-hae to get roles in dramas specially with her not categorized as an A-Lister and it doesn’t help that she has been away for 3 years and the fact that all her agencies for the past 6 years have done and doing nothing for her so she is basically out there on her own.
So the journey might still not be easy for her but I am sure her strong will won’t be shaken and who knows what surprises the future holds for us 😉
I hope she can continue gracing our screens for many years to come, it doesn’t matter the nationality of her works anymore, just wishing she keep enjoying the acting that she love for as long as she can.
Congratulation Da-hae shi, Lets enjoy the journey and grow old together!! ❤
