Lee Da Hae was recently hospitalized for fatigue, as she had done an all-night shoot last month, and her stamina had worsened over the weeks. She was ordered to rest for a week, but Da Hae received an IV treatment and went straight back to work.
Not only is the drama doing well, but she’s passionate about it since this is the first one she’s actually headlining after Chuno. (Well – if I were watching Chuno I wouldn’t be looking for her in the first place – not with Oh Ji Ho and Jang Hyuk around.) Her character is compelling since she’s a person of many faces, many looks, and many lies. It’s been said that she’s had to change her outfits ten times in an episode due to her character’s changing personalities.
I haven’t tuned in to Miss Ripley yet, but maybe after it’s all over I will. I am naturally averse to it because it’s a melodrama with all the cliches you can think of built into it. However, I do keep hearing good things about it, which makes me curious as to why it’s so great. With all the “scandals” Lee Da Hae seems to naturally attract (i.e.: speaking her mind too much, quitting projects halfway through, not having good PR, etc) I’d love to see her back at the top of her game and being just a good actress. If this is the vehicle for it, then I think I’ll tune in for a few episodes.
