Birdie Buddy finds new lead in Lee Da-hee
Not to be confused with Chuno‘s Lee Da-hae, actress Lee Da-hee has been selected as the lead in golf drama Birdie Buddy. She’ll join After School’s UEE as another gifted golfer, and takes over the role initially offered to and vacated by Seo Ji-hye.
Her character Hae-ryung is the daughter to the owner of a top golf resort and possesses “perfect golf skills”; thus Hae-ryung’s advantages contrast with the more humble background of UEE’s character Mi-soo. If you’re wondering who the “real” lead is, it isn’t specifically outlined but I had always assumed that it would be Seo Ji-hye, and now Lee Da-hee. (I may be wrong, but that’s what the description suggested to me; in any case, UEE is still considered a lead as opposed to a supporting role.)
Lee Da-hee had roles in 2007’s Legend and 2008’s Secret of Keu Keu Island; she also acted in movies Beyond All Magic and the more recent prison-choir film Harmony, which starred Kim Yun-jin. Or perhaps you’ll recognize her as Choi Ji-woo’s little sis in 2007’s Air City.
The Group Eight production will begin filming in Gangwon-do on March 25.
