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 has been a very long time since I updated here but good to be back with some meaningful news ❤
Lee Da-hae updated her Instagram today mentioning that she is travelling to Sierra Leone in Africa for a mission with UNICEF. It is a long travel from since she traveled yesterday, then reaching to Amsterdam and from there to Sierra Leone.
This news comes as a surprise since she remains to be low key for the past few months but it makes me quite happy and proud to see her doing a charity and volunteer work outside of Asia and on a more global scale, it has been always been one of my wishes.
I am sure it will be a very special and personal experience for her that can help her grow on many levels while she help and interact with children and people there.
Hope she will update us again from there or may be we get some news reports about her trip, but till then check below for more posts she gave us in the past period ^^
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 being MBC drama weekend drama. And honestly I did feel some negative tone in the initial reports about Da-hae’s casting from her own agency and 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 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.

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 ^^
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*
