It has been long since I posted here!! but finally I am back with some exciting news ^^
Although there is still no confirmed reports about Lee Da-hae accepting the offer to star in the new SBS weekender “Good Witch” that I have wrote about before, but all the signs are screaming that it is already a done deal and they even started filming!!
I guess our girl have been quite busy lately preparing for the drama filming that she didn’t update us for a month but seems she couldn’t contain her excitement for starting a new project anymore and she couldn’t wait for the confirmed news to come out to update us with the above pictures from the drama set!!
In her message she is saying that the weather is cold but she is keeping her self warm during filming, her tags included words “Challenge” and “Under Development” 🙂
Not sure what they started filming exactly but may be some test shots or teaser or posters?! But seeing Da-hae again on filming set with her big smile and playful attitude is enough to make me super excited ❤
Since the drama still more than 3 months away from its airing date which is set to be in March 2018 so it may be understandable why SBS and the production team not in a rush to start the drama promotions till now but I am happy to know they already started the real work behind the scenes and hopefully they at least give us the confirmation news soon.
Check below for more updates about the drama and our girl ~~
Seems we are on a roll lately for some good news and I certainly love it!!
Reports came out today that Lee Da-hae was offered the role of the heroine named “Cha Sun Hee” in a new SBS Weekend drama called “Good Witch” (translation of “착한마녀전”) and she is considering the offer among others as per her agency. So nothing is confirmed yet.
The drama is described as a delightful love and success story of a good housewife who solves the difficult problems of her (twin?) brother (or Sister?)(Is it a double role?) and her own life and is in charge of working instead of her husband, who is suffering from unemployment. And if I am not wrong, it seems she will be working in house keeping and home cooking (Haha, talk about “Guest Housedaughters” effect 😀 )
The drama comes from writer Yoon Young-Mi of “Birth of a Beauty” and PD Oh Se-Gang of “My Heart Twinkle Twinkle” and scheduled to follow currently airing “Bravo My Life” which means it is expected to air early next year but the exact schedule is not yet determined because of the winter Olympics that will be held in Korea in February 2018 and will affect the TV schedule and with this I think we won’t get any confirmed news any time soon.
Again it is a weekend drama which might mean it being quite lengthy and airing in a time-slot that is not very popular. Also the team behind the drama isn’t that assuring either but honestly I am unexpectedly more happy about this news compared to the previous one mainly because I do like the sound of the character offered to our girl here more.
A tough relatable character in a female centeric story, being in charge of her own life and not just a plot device is a big plus in my book even if the premise is nothing special. So lets see what our girl’s final decision will be 😉
If she accepted the role, this will be Da-hae’s first Korean drama in almost 4 years since “Hotel King” and her first drama on SBS after 10 years since “Robber” in 2008.

Yay for some good news!!
There have been reports for the past week about agreements between Korea and China about THAAD and there is going to be further talks between the two sides from now on to reach a full agreement. With this news it was announced that the ban on Korean celebrities activities in China being lifted.
Since the ban was never official so it was hard to judge if this all just talk like some reports earlier this year or it is real this time unless something truly happens on the ground that proves it is and that it would affect positively on Lee Da-hae‘s Chinese drama “My Goddess, My Mother” which was put off indefinitely after it was done filming in Auguest last year.
Today we finally got a report stating that the drama is expected to air next year and that the production team is gearing up for some promotion. But no further details on airing channel or schedule is released.
Although things are still not clear and I am still controlling getting too excited but it seems that we are finally seeing light in the long dark tunnel we have been in for a while now and we might really get to enjoy our girl’s acting once again even if it is in a drama that filmed more than a year before.
This is a very special project for Da-hae and she studied really hard for this drama as she mentioned in her episode in Life Bar show so she could be able to user her own voice for this drama instead of dubbing which will be a first for her after “Best Lover” and “Love Actually” both dubbed which is another reason for me to look forward to this one ❤
Fighting Da-hae shi and till we hopefully get some promo materials and further news about this drama, check below her latest Instagram updates ^^
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)]
It has been sometime since we saw Lee Da-hae recording any new CF or Ad. But good thing that a new promo has come out from ANYA cosmetics for their new product (CERAMIDE) featuring our girl.
Judging from Da-hae’s look here, I think this was recorded recently. And who knows may be she can really resume her activities fully as their model now since the Korean-China relationships are now better.
We actually got news recently that Da-hae got contacted by a Chinese company and was invited to attend some event soon. Not sure if the company is ANYA or not but it seems we may have chance seeing her active in China again and hopefully we can also see her Chinese drama “My Goddess, My Mother” soon with this development since the news also mentioned that her agency were notified that it will air soon *crossing fingers*
Few weeks after ending, “Best Lover” hit 1 Billion views on Youku and this surely something deserve the celebration.
This is a drama that was in danger of not airing at all but although it didn’t succeed to air on TV channel and all the issues facing Korean dramas airing in China and without having promotions, it still reached this and among 700 web dramas that aired in China in 2016, it came out in 5th place in the second half of the year and the 15th for the year overall and the 7th among Korean dramas.
I’m honestly happy for our girl, the cast and crew for achieving this despite my own issues with the drama.
Celebrating the event, Lee Da-hae joined the drama cast and crew gathering in Korea on the 22nd. It is great seeing them again together after a year since the drama finished filming but sadly Zhou Mi is filming a new drama in China and seems he couldn’t join them.
Also from Da-hae’s international fans celebrating this occasion, the revised and final English subtitle version of the drama is now out on subscene. Thanks to our little subbing team in Soompi Ely_397, Annya and Emok for their amazing efforts once again and a big congratulation on their first subbing project ❤
Now check below for more pictures from the party ^^
