Although this was an expected move that we saw coming but it is still feels sudden!! (KBS has been handling this pretty bad from start to end >.< )
KBS announced that “Guesthouse Daughters” will end with only 12 episodes and the last episode will air tomorrow the 9th of May.
I guess many would agree that this was a disappointing run not only in terms of rating but also in execution and I am sad that Lee Da-hae‘s first trial with variety shows haven’t been successful but still I am sure she learned from it and hopefully this will pave the way for her to comeback with an acting project this year (still praying hard for that).
Saying goodbye is always hard and I will miss the cast; who surely deserved better since they did their best for the show; and also seeing our girl every week but I will treasure the lovely moments and new sides we saw of our girl through this program and yah I will still recap them in upcoming posts (although it might feels like it is too late 😀 ).
Fighting Da-Hae Shi!!
It has been some time since I posted recaps for “Guesthouse Daughters” but don’t worry I still plan to do that, I am just not in the mood to write lately 😦
Till I post the recaps, here are some BTS and stills for Lee Da-hae from the latest episodes. May be due to the show not doing good in ratings and not being that popular, KBS has stopped updating their blog or releasing news with some stills of the show which is a pity since it means we won’t get much HD stills if this continues in the future but thanks to fans we still got some BTS from the filming posted on SNS.
In another news, Leeteuk from Super Junior is now part of the family so expect to see him very often from now on 😉
Now check the stills, BTS pictures and videos for episodes from 6 to 11 below 🙂
More news came out with details about the changes that Lee Da-hae‘s variety show “Guesthouse Daughters” will go through.
In addition to Yoon So Yi and Jang Shin Young also Park Soo Hong will be leaving. And despite the initial reports about comedian Park Na Rae and idol Jung Chae Yeon joining the cast, seems it was decided to continue the show with only the main 4 remaining members without any new addition.
In the new format of the program, instead of testing male guests to board the daughters house, the cast will be visiting a real boarding house with students and youth and will interact and help with the real people living in cleaning, laundry and other jobs and tasks.
The first episode with the new format will air on 28/3 and the program will not air any episode today 21/3.
First Happy New Year everyone!!
With the end of 2016 we are also came to the end of Lee Da-hae‘s drama “Best Lover” on 27th of December with the whole episodes released for all users on Youku.
I will save my opinion about the drama for a review post that I hope I can finish soon. But regardless of that and although it is not a drama that had any buzz but it did gain a decent success recording about 800 Million views and rating of 9.7 by the end of its run. So congrats to the staff and actors involved in the project.
Celebrating the ending, Da-hae’s agency JS Pictures released many stills of our girl from the drama. Check all below in addition to the latest NG videos released from Youku ^^
With only 4 episodes till the finale, Youku has released more NG/BTS videos of Lee Da-hae and the cast filming for the drama.
I was really craving for more BTS videos since we didn’t get any chance to see the cast promoting the drama together and also we don’t even hear their own voices in the drama so seeing such on set moments is quite precious ❤
Also we got more BTS pictures of the wedding photo-shoot done in the drama, check all below ^^
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 ^^
It is finally here! I’m partying here because seeing Lee Da-hae on my screen again is enough reason 😉
And seems our girl is also quite excited about her drama airing since she is updating her Weibo with all the new previews and episodes links.
“Best Lover” started airing on Chinese popular online video website Youku on Midnight, November the 14th. They uploaded 6 episodes for VIP members but free users can watch one episode per day.
So you can now watch the 1st two episodes on Youku even if you are no member. Here are the links.
Episode 1 | Episode 2
