After about 2 weeks since it started airing, Lee Da-hae‘s drama “Best Lover” hits 200 million views Youku and got 9.6 rating on the site. Also it has been ranking in the Top 10 online ratings in almost all days since released. I’m quite glad to see our girl’s drama getting good response specially after being away from the drama scene for more than 2 years so congratulation to the her and all the drama cast and staff.
Through those 2 weeks seems that Youku changed their strategy in the release the episodes, may be in trial to use the decent success of the drama. Till now they released 6 episodes for free users while episode 7 and 8 are only available for members and seems they will open those for free users and release 9 and 10 for members on Monday (00:00) which is few hours from now and will keep releasing 2 episodes per week every Monday and that would mean that “Best Lover” will end its run by the end of December.
OK, those were the good news but on the other side, our girl’s cameo in “Love Through a Millennium 2” which was supposed to air on the 16th was cut from the 1st episode of the drama. I am quite angry with this specially that we got a confirmation news from Da-hae’s agency about it but seems that things may be getting worse and China started to really take more actions with the ban of Korean celebrities in the country which we knew about before.
With “Best Lover” now already airing and seems safe from such actions, I hope that her other Chinese drama “My Goddess, My Mother” will be safe as well and already got the approval for airing since some of the latest reports about this issue said that “Programs that have been approved by reviews and meet the official guidelines of entertainment programs have been excluded.” I am glad that I have “Best Lover” to keep me away from thinking about that too much.
Now here are some stills and BTS pictures released from the drama ^^
From the wedding scene that was aired in Ep 4 (never get tired of seeing Da-hae in wedding dress ❤ )
And here are a couple of short BTS videos from the wedding, I really hope Youku release more BTS videos. They only released one from the 1st episode till now 😦
