Lee Da-hae drops two films in a row

Lee Da-hae has dropped out of her movie debut(s), 3D blockbuster Song of Springs and Coffee (Ka-bi) (formerly titled Russian Coffee), the latter of which she’d signed on to a few months back alongside Joo Jin-mo.

Coffee is a late-Joseon-era spy melodrama about an assassination attempt on Emperor Gojong; Lee was to have played a Joseon barista who served coffee to him. Yoo Sun and Park Hee-soon are also starring.

With Lee’s last-minute departure comes shooting delays — in fact, it had initially intended to begin filming in December and wrap in April, but hasn’t yet begun. Lee attributes her departure to the delay. Adding to the pressure is the news that Joo Jin-mo has stated he will start looking at scripts for other projects, although he has not yet decided to leave the project himself. Plus, the formerly high-budget production recently had its funds slashed from 10 billion won to less than half that, which makes its planned location shoots in Russia and Japan — not to mention its anticipated summer release — difficult.

Along with this wave of news comes yet more (barely?) veiled criticism at Lee Da-hae, who seems to be dogged with bad press wherever she turns. It doesn’t help that she (in)famously dropped East of Eden mid-drama, and is starting to gain the reputation of a quitter. (Article headlines ranged from Lee Da-hae Drops Movie, Unfortunately to Lee Da-hae Quits AGAIN. Insert implied sigh of frustration as needed.) But you know what, I’ll say it: The woman badly needs a crash course in media training, and perhaps new management.

On one hand, I sort of feel sorry for her, because some of the stuff she’s been hit with is unfair, such as the Chuno hoopla over her exposed cleavage. But I also think there’s A LOT to be said for how a celeb handles herself with the media, and Lee is one of those actresses who manages to always do the thing that makes the situation worse for herself. She comes off as oddly tone-deaf to the tenor of public sentiment, and her defensive explanations carry this weird tone of petulance. It’s like how I always want to give Katherine Heigl the benefit of the doubt, but then she’ll say something so abrasive and stunningly entitled that I. Just. Can’t.

It’s like that scene in Dream High when Pil-sook is ambushed on TV with her old fat photo, and the producers lick their chops gleefully, wanting a shrill meltdown in all its trainwrecky glory…and she wins them over by being adorable and good-natured. That’s what Lee Da-hae needs to do…only she always seems to do the other thing. Please, for your own good, get some savvy management onboard. I do WANT to like you. I. Just. Can’t.

Of what good is one's talent and beauty if it is not "used" for its purposes . There are so many actresses out there equally beautiful and talented or even more. I'm even surprised she still gets offers . Maybe her talent management is so good in packaging her /marketing her acting ,but boy o boy, they can't seem to manage what comes after being hired .

Where does the fault lies ? Just jumping into a project first then analyze later . She strikes me as an intelligent woman or is she too intelligent for her own good ? I'm not trying to say ,she should swallow everything hook line and sinker but she had experiences on being on the bad side of the bargain that she should have learned her lessons . What shoot now , walk out later what a bummer !

The Choono stuff was stupid. I agree with you 100%. So was her recent dress scandal. Both are stupid issues and I feel sorry for her. Leaving some projects seems partly her decision and partly production's fault, but it is true that she's run into some negativity lately. Hopefully she will bounce back and do a solid project soon.

I love how you brought up Katherine Hiegl. Yeah, LDH always sounds (too) defensive, to the point that it's as if she paints herself as the victim. Which does her no favors, especially because the public is not so forgiving.
It's always an, "I'm sorry and I do apologize... BUT I did nothing wrong!" Ermmm.

Well I don't know about her but Heigl gets a bad rap in my opinion. She is humble and very down to earth. Unfortunately she is often too honest for her own good but never entitled. Also the press want to paint this picture of her as a diva (which just isnt true) and people buy into it even when stories are completely untrue.

she does seem to... voice her complaints... very openly. i think she has made some valid, public complaints in the past but like with the dress incident, it really would have been better if she had simply issued a brief statement through a spokesperson or something. there will always be malicious gossips, and as a public figure, the more quickly she accepts that fact the better it will be for her.

i recall an incident where han ye-seul wore a strapless dress during a singing performance and every time she raised her hands, her bra peeked out, and netizens bashed her stylist for the dress choice. HYS spoke up in defense of her stylist i believe, and i remember liking her more for it as a result.

not saying that lee da-hae shouldn't speak out in the future, but that the dress incident didn't seem worth speaking out about like that i think. it would died out soon enough of its own accord...

I have to say, even before I found out about the East of Eden thing (which is to say MONTHS after it happened) I didn't like her. Something about her character in My Girl made me want to avoid her, and then I hear about the East of Eden thing and now I outright don't like her.

I avoid Chuno like the plague because she's in it. The only thing that can make me avoid one of her dramas more is if they added Gu Hye Sun (or whatever the BBF girl is named) ::shudders at the thought, two shrill girls in a drama together::

I once believed that Koo Hye Sun would be the most significant actresses from her age group, just because she went beyond my expectations in the historical drama (King & I?). However, she did disappoint me in BBF. I thought it was her worst performance of her career.

I think with all her other activities, it seems like she's been gone from TV for a long time. I can't say much about her other activities and criticize her like some do, but it would help her a lot if she does a project soon. She was working on a drama, but I don't think it is confirmed to air anytime soon. My book is still open on KHS, but I agree that BBF was very disappointing.

Regarding the bashing going on here in regards to Gu Hye Sun, please remember BOF wasn't her only work so please don't judge her acting in the role alone. I mean I am not a fangirl of GHS or anything and BOF has got to be my least favorite adaptation of manga but BOF was a complete mess to begin with , it had bad writers, bad PD, a nonsensical plot, way too tight shooting schedule, and bad casting in regards to a couple of the roles. GHS should of never been casted for the JanDi role because visually she didn't fit the role and we may bash her on her overacting, but how do we know if that was her choice or that was the vision that the PD wanted. She has actually had many more good acting performances than bad so to write her off as a horrible actress based on that one role is a bit closed minded. Please watch her other roles and than judge her abilities.

all the dramas u mentioned are among the famous in Asia region and Chuno is gaining popularity in Europe as well, there must be something about her that make the media didn't like her (not to mention JB's fans). But I read her data in many blogs, she is very famous in China, and got more than milllions followers from her china twitter, so why Korean media always said something -ve.
She should give them some drink though, or invites them to dinner sometimes.

Oh it's only my opinion, and i think the dramas are popular not because of her, but the dramas itself. In fact Green Rose is being adapted locally here in the Philippines. And I'm not saying she's not good because of her recent derogatory action about our english accent. She apologize for it already, even honestly admitting that she learned a lot from our English teachers. and i'm sure most of the Filipinos have forgiven her already, because we are forgiving by nature. we even forgive corrupt government officials quite easily =).

Let's just say Lee Da Hae haven't proven anything to me. I'm currently watching Chuno and now in episode 6. In all the episodes i've seen, i think her expressions never changed. I find Kim Ha-eun (sulhwa) a better actress than her. Again, just my opinion.

Made me wonder, did she drop out of Coffee because she's just one of the 3 lead actresses and doesn't want to have a repeat of East of Eden? hmmm...

I read she was not mentioning your country but southeast asia accent, it was bad editing from KBS, anyway, if your people still believe and can x-ray her heart, so maybe you are right.

On her drama, MY GIRL, I thought she was so good in it, and also in Chuno (eventhough very passive characters, I love her chemistry with her co-stars), .. She got good review from professional drama critics on her acting esp in drama Heaven Fate, so I'm OK when others said the opposite.

I think she has to drop Coffee because she has to start on another project.

have you watched that part of the show? even if you don't understand a single word of hangeul, you can still clearly make out the word "Philippines", so no, I'm not buying the bad editing excuse she gave. It was an insult to Filipinos, and not Southeast Asians in general.

You know what they say, when there's smoke, there's fire. So news of her being a diva and all, I suppose there's some truth to that.

She doesn't need a new management to handle her PR. What she needs is a new attitude.

As if she's the only bankable actress in Korea. Whatever.

i mean i feel sorry for some of her predicaments but she always seems to launch into a rant about them. she really does need better media management and try to learn how to filter both ways - not let certain things affect her that much & not to run her mouth off about her feelings.

and yeah, dropping that many projects in a row doesn't seem to reflect well on her at all. i'd think twice about signing her on projects if i was a PD

I’ve always been indifferent towards Lee Da-hae. While I don’t see her as a bad actress, I’ve never loved one of her performances or dramas (My Girl was just okay for me). I can see why she might have dropped Kabi (Coffee) since it hasn’t been on schedule, and she’s a “top-star”. However, as a fan of Park Hee-soon, I wish she wouldn’t have dropped. Looking at the brighter side, an even more fantastic actress could get on board (not likely but possible).

Side-note: I can’t believe Park Hee-soon is dating Park Ye-jin! They look surprisingly good together! Park Hee-soon is adorbs, and Park Ye-jin was awesomely awesome in Family Outing!

I think she is not interested in acting anymore, based on your report and analysis, I think she don't care much about popularity, she just want to protect herself especially with the writing like this, (and one thing, you so spot on JB, you write so likeable article about YEH, then this report about LDH, and I've been following your blog for many years, I know the pattern of comments that will come, and what a bonus for YEH fans).

If she really not interested in acting, what a shame, Korea is losing one of the most talented young star, I have to bear to see overhyped sweet saccharin other actresses then.

Don't worry. I think LDH will produce many more good projects. I can guess how LDH fans would be upset with her bad luck these days also. I believe that people made a big thing out of nothing in regards to what happened recently. I wonder what your bitterness towards YEH fans are though. Your experience with their fans must have not been great. I actually hope best for LDH, YEH, KHS and many younger actresses because I believe it would make the industry that much better. I'm pretty new here, I usually surf the Korean portals a lot, and YEH fans never discuss LDH in bad ways there. I also didn't see any LDH fans discussing YEH in bad ways. It must have been on this site if something happened before. But you should just take it as your experience, I'm sure just as most LDH fans don't say bad things of YEH fans, most of YEH fans don't say bad things about LDH fans. If anything, I've seen fans who like both actresses. So don't look too badly upon some things. I don't think this post was meant to criticize LDH, it just reported what was going on.

can u imagine YEH has been waiting for Verdi find a male lead for her for a year? she never asked for extra money, she just waited and gave them time to look for 1 because she wanted to do that drama...

Man, this doesn't look good for Lee Da-hae! This girl really can't catch a break!

On the one hand, I'm glad she's looking out for herself and asserting herself. And I can understand dropping a production that is taking too long to begin filming. But with the hoopla over her quitting EoE (which screwed her over in the first place) and the cleavage issue in Chuno, it may have been wiser to make a sacrifice or two to restore her image. Now other productions may be more hesitant abt hiring her.

It's always difficult to take very seriously actresses who have changed their faces so radically. For me to take such an actress with any degree of seriousness, the actress has to be indubitably great at her craft. Even then, it's still hard, e.g., Seo Woo who's actually quite an actress but all I can fixate on is the freaky face that's contorting itself. And her whiny voice.

While many actresses and actors undergo cosmetic surgery, it's easier to not to be distracted by subtle nips and tucks than by radical changes that transform someone with a typically Korean face into someone with a weird, hybrid Western-Southeast Asian face, all in the name of commercial viability.

Lee Da Hae - I was glad that she was up front about having had surgery but I find it hard not to snicker every time anyone says she's beautiful. Unfortunately, her talent is not significant enough to drown out all this distracting noise.

I feel the same way that you do. I have to admit Seo Woo has some acting chops, but her face bothers me when it's on screen. The same with Kim Ah Joong. When overly plasticized actresses are on screen, I keep telling myself to look past their faces.. but it sure is hard.

Now, I have nothing against plastic surgery. If you think that it will make you feel more confident, then go for it. Just don't overdo it is my take.

I can understand she felt sad and annoyed with those articles and comments, but ranting like that ( and those long explanation and making herself like a victim ) was kinda inappropriate.

I agree she should get a better management and restrain herself to directly encounter this kind of accident.

oh this... I pretty much thinks she killed Gray's Anatomy at that point in time though the bigger roles were other people... Its just the whole synergy was so drained by then with the exit of a couple of roles... and will she, will she not come back, esp when she has tasted movie's box office success... and mostly what she says is pretty urgh...

On Lee Da Hae... seriously where has that My Girl or Greeen Rose's girl went? What is all this all about seriously? Perhaps girl should consider new management and things hasn't really recover since East of Eden and Chuno for her... I do feel bad for her... but just but... le sigh...

I feel bad for Lee Da Hae and I actually do like her. I agree that if she had taken the "Pil-sook" approach to the dress incident (like "omo how embarrassing, but that wasn't what you all thought haha", you know, just shrug it off) it would have reflected better on her. I understand her being hurt by the comments, I would too if I were her. For her own sake though, if she is to last longer in this business, she'll need to develop thicker skin.
I hope that she does find a good project soon and is able to get rid of some of this bad press.

sorry for what? this is a Filipino blog? are you kidding me? A lot of reader will disagree... are you new here that you don't read Malaysian, Mexican and other nationalities commenting? this is a multicultural site where any people around the globe can rant and rave...and for the record your not a big help in LDH image nor career coz stopping and telling people to change blog if they don't like this or that is a lame excuse to face facts in life...so deal it with!

...and next time reply below comments is quite visible so use it...commenters will surely appreciate it.

I am a huge fan of LDH and I just feel bad that she has a bad luck with projects.
I am just soo sad Seeing how she worked hard to learn horse riding every day and learning Russian language to prepare for this movie and now forced to drop it because of delays which caused conflict in her schedule.
Please come back in a new project soon.

I never liked her. Dont like her aura, she has this arrogant look,air of superiority and she gives out this insincere vibe. Her rude fans dont help either, they are like the worse bunch, who bash other actresses just to make Lee Da Hae seem better than everyone else. What they dont know, is , that kind of attitude will fuel more hatred towards their idol.

her dress issue was totally unfair to begin with, right from the start... I felt soo sorry for her with the dress issue because we are all women. I don't wanna comment too much about the media management issue since I do realize that she's quite defensive, and that I agree. But again think, who won't? If you put yourself into her shoes, will you do the same thing? Alrght, you're a celeb so I don't blame you; you need to be able to keep your cool. But before a celeb, she's a woman. Before a woman, she's a human (yes I quoted this from her defensive tweet not long ago), so whatcha' expectin' from her defence? I thought that was natural. Just that she needs to do it in a more round-about manner. Why so? She's a celebrity, simply put.

My guess is...she may most possibly be demoralized about her status in showbiz already with her last dress scandal. Didn't she talk about that in her defence tweet like I'd said? When a person gets demoralized, she lacks spirit and thus enthusiasm... That's natural isn't it...

Anyway about the tag on her as a 'quitter'... Hmmm I don't exactly know how to comment on that tag but then...... I guess there's two sides to everything (as the quote always goes) :
you empathize with her and try thinking if you might have done the same thing like her
you criticize her and bash her and think of her negatively as an irresponsible Worker X...

i don't mind if she never appears in a drama or movie, ever! after her fiasco over the "filipino" accent imitation, she does not deserve to be seen anywhere! not even with her haalf-baked forced apology! is she a bigot or what? she is an overacting b***h, with nary an ounce of real talent.

woooooh calm down...
she has talent, just a problem with her attitude
also i think the issue with the imitation of the filipino was wrong on her part but it seems blown out of proportion... dude growing up in a multicultural society(like Australia<- LDH lived in Syd) you would inevitably be exposed to many different accents and i don't think her imitation was actually insulting, there was a bit of truth that rang out in the imitation. don't go hating on me though, i have tons of friends who are filipino and they do have accents but that is their charms :) there is a difference between patriotism and just purely hating on lee da hae

i've been thinking about whether i should comment on LDH's supposed mocking of filipino's accent... anyway here goes...

full disclosure: i'm filipino

when i first heard of LDH imitating filipino accent, my first reaction was to laugh. because it didn't sound anything like filipino accent to me :D. not that we are oh so great in english, we do have an accent that sounds strange to those not used to hearing it. (if anyone is interested, look for happy slip videos on youtube. the mom and the aunt are hilarious and spot on with the accent)

regardless of whether LDH mocked filipinos (or the entire south east asian region), i think it's hypocritical of us to be so indignant about it because we do it too. we mock visayan and batangueno accents on tv and in movies. (that would be like southern accent in the US or saturi accent in korea)

i'd also like to assure everyone that not all filipinos reacted too harshly. some of us may have been pissed off for about 5 minutes and then moved on.

enough about that incident... i do agree with jb that LDH needs a new PR management, and possibly some PR lessons as well. she should have gone the pil sook route and laughed off the wardrobe malfunction. she came off worse with her response.

her bad press reminds me of sawajiri erika =\
she was also such a pretty and good actress except now she is more famous for scandals and attitude problems rather than her talent...

i support LDH , she is just being out spoken and wanting to fight back because she was being bullied.

There are many other factors for an actor to decided to drop out a project. Sponsors, producers ,directors......so dont arrow at the actor only.

i agree with you, but you see most people here (including the one who wrote this article(she admitted herself above) are anti-fans of LDH and thanks to the writer's headline it make LDH sounds more irresponsible. PPl comparing YEH with LDH, which i think is total bull as YEH is big name and ofc she can wait for the producer to find xyz as long as she want, but LDH is different she still trying her best to rebuild after the EOE inci so she needs to have some projects she cant be waiting forever (she wont be young forever, its very logic dont know majority of you dont understand even a kid know :D).

Note to the writer of this article: No one if making you to like LDH if you liked her before and now dislike her (who's loyal now i wonder lol before you write bad about others should look at yourself dear) can you please spare her some slack or what ppl usually say stop putting oil in fire :D. Thanks.

so sad. i loved her past dramas like my girl and hello! miss. they were such classics! i always went back to them to rewatch because they were so good. hopefully she'll make a grand comeback and then people will know she is a talented actress.

I liked her in My Girl.. Green Rose made me cry but more because of Go Soo.. I don't mind her in a drama but yes, I don't really follow her career/scandals because she has this fake and haughty attitude that come across with her interviews, etc..

i think given that other stars are polite, she comes across more abrasive and outspoken than she really is. i agree with you though, jb, she needs a better PR strategy.

btw, she looks lovely in this pic, love the overall look.

If the budget cuts in half.. Yeah.. for sure I will quit too!
For sure, she doesn't want to quit in the middle of the drama.. so better quit now if the budget has been cut then drama will suffer.

Eeek, lots of animosity!

I really like Lee Dahae, but I don't really follow her outside of dramas, so I'm not really sure about other things, but I know she's a talented actress. Obviously she needs new PR management because they are not doing a decent job right now.

About the East of Eden thing... Okay, I have to sympathize with her. Anybody who has watched that show, come on. First of all, her role was supposed to be a pivotal role between the two brothers. But what ended up happening? In turn, you saw her screen time dwindle down to mere insignificant 5 minutes per episode. I'm pretty sure that's not what she signed up for. Sure, the exit could have been better, but I wouldn't per se waste time on a project where the writer has completely changed your role and now your role has become that of a 3rd rate actress'. It was pretty much meaningless.

Eh, the girl needs better PR but I like her as an actress so it doesn't even matter..

I do WANT to like you. I. Just. Can’t. <- THIS I agree with so much. To be honest I haven't seen Chuno but I have seen her other projects and I am pretty neutral to her acting abilities in those. She has yet to either blow me away or horrify me. BUT I think she really needs to take a class on PR and professionalism. For example I understand what happened in East of Eden and I understand her frustrations on becoming a small character instead of the pivotal role she signed up for but I think she could of handled it much more professionally than she did.

Like how? by let it be and agree to be treated unfairly? ppllike you who said should do it more profesionally, but like what? stop just saying and pretend you know what "act professionally" actually means. God ppl these days.

"I do WANT to like you. I. Just. Can’t"
This made me LOL when i read it, whoever wrote this is simply a hypocrite :) are people forcing you to like LDH? no sweetie. Both of you made me pukie lol

What jb meant about wanting to like LDH but can't means she's giving her the benefit of the doubt. It's not like she's being forced by someone to like the person.
Try to widen your understanding.

Gosh she quit because of good reasons! Yet when people hate you, they will nitpick everything anything anyhow. I hate how people saying that she has no talents. She didn't just rose up from ashes. She had worked up from the smallest roles to "my girl".

If you watch all her dramas ranging from "green rose" to "my girl" you can see her range.

Anyways, I think she's more love in China. Maybe an exit from korean biz will do good for her. Since everything she does is giving her more pain than love.

I really like her and she's one of my favorite actresses. I thought her departure from East of Eden was totally justified, even if it wasn't exactly professional. But dropping out of two films after that is...just stupid, especially after gaining that infamous reputation from east of eden. Come on now. New management please and thank you.

I never liked her! I tried watching my girl until episode 3 then quit because I couldn't stand the way she acts.
It doesn't help that her face now is barely recognizable, like any day now, it would collapse or something.

She just has this very unlikable persona, that makes me cringe whenever I see her.
