Lee Da Hae is about to embark on huge success in China
Lee Dae Hae is to be staying in China from March to June, filming her Chinese drama, Love Recipe. With the filming wrapping up, Lee Da Hae has been receiving calls from various Chinese companies, confirming her popularity in China.
Lee Dae Hae’s company, Forestar Entertainment, said, “The drama filming is to end at the middle of May, to the large amount of commercial contracts coming in, we may stay in China for a little longer. She is in the middle of modeling for cosmetic (Just BB) and electronic (Hyundai TV) products, but she has also received offers to model for drinks, cell phones and other products.”
The popularity Lee Da Hae is seeing in China is due to her role as a hallyu star. On her SNS, she has around 3 million followers, and her official fan club counts up to about 10,000 members. Due to the large amount of fans, commercial agencies are in the race to ‘capture Lee Da Hae.’
A representative of a product company that Lee Da Hae has signed with said, “In 2008, Hunan TV aired Lee Da Hae’s drama, My Girl, nationwide and the ratings shot through the roof. With Love Recipe airing August, there’s a lot of expectations for what’s to come, which is why we decided to sign a contract with Lee Da Hae.”
Lee Da Hae’s company representative said, “Fans seem to find her friendlier as she is approaching them with fluent Chinese. Since around 2005, she’s been practicing her Chinese and has been able to say her Chinese dialogue with no problem. She has been providing a different service that other hallyu actresses cannot. Also, she’s been getting attention because she is appearing in Love Recipe with top star, Zheng Yuan Chang (Joe Cheng).
Starring Lee Da Hae, Love Recipe is a success story of an owner of a dim sum restaurant in China. Lee Dae Hae plays the role of So Ha, who was raised in a poor environment. With her nephew, she stumbles upon a dim sum restaurant and works to become the best chef.
