Lee Da-hae considers new weekender Money Flower
One of my most fondly remembered actresses from my earlier drama-watching days, Lee Da-hae (Hotel King), is considering a return to Korean dramas after spending the past few years more active overseas. She’s been offered a lead role in the MBC weekend drama Money Flower, although she’s reportedly reviewing other scripts as well. MBC has also clarified that she’s one of the candidates, and has not confirmed.
A synopsis on Money Flower hasn’t been revealed but the writer is Lee Myung-hee (weekend sageuk Jang Young-shil, airport action drama Air City) and the PD is Lee Hyung-sun (weekend family series I Summon You, Gold). I can’t say I’m a huge fan of all their works, but Lee Hyung-sun does have a lengthy record of weekend family dramas and was the main assistant on All About Eve, a Hallyu classic.
For Lee Da-hae, if she confirms, it will be a comeback in three years since her reunion drama with Lee Dong-wook, Hotel King, in 2014. I was really looking forward to it because I loved watching My Girl, but unfortunately their matchup wasn’t as successful that time around.
Lee Da-hae has since been active in China, acting in Couple of the Century, which was about a star contract marriage, and also headlining My Goddess, My Mother, playing a successful careerwoman. The only domestic activities she has done recently are modeling CFs and a cohabitation variety show called Guesthouse Daughters.
In any case, I’m looking forward to her comeback. Money Flower is tentatively on the schedule to air in the time slot of Thief-nom, Thief-nim after it ends.
