Lee Da Hae is Wang Xiao Xia, a naturally talented chef who works part-time jobs to scrape by as she supports her nephew Yang Guang. Due to a mistake by the real estate agent Chen Hao Jie, Xiao Xia gets swindled by her landlord, leaving her homeless. With nowhere to go, Hao Jie takes Xiao Xia back to his house for the time being. Turns out the Chen family owns a very prominent restaurant chain. Through a series of misunderstandings, Xiao Xia is mistaken as Hao Jie’s girlfriend. But their odd behavior leaves the other Chen son Hao Feng (Joe Cheng) suspicious of the real relationship.

Daddy Chen and the younger Chen cousin Li Yang (Li Yi Feng) immediately takes a liking to Xiao Xia. After Xiao Xia’s real identity is revealed, she doesn’t get kicked out, and is instead being groomed as the successor chef. The personalities of Xiao Xia and Hao Feng are like water and fire, and they constantly bicker. After going through a series of situations together, they gradually grow closer and start to have warm feelings for each other. Hao Feng’s ex-girlfriend tries to create a wedge between the couple by manufacturing a series of misunderstandings. A cousin of the Chen family returns and plots to take over the family business. But with Xiao Xia’s perseverance and faith, the Chen family overcomes this ordeal, and Xiao Xia and Hao Feng finally have their happy ending together.

    Actress Lee Da-hae is stepping into the Chinese market.

    She has recently been cast as the leading female role in a Chinese drama. The first shoot will take place in Shanghai, China on the 5th of March.

    This Chinese drama is about the success story of a chef based in a dumpling house and Lee Da-hae is the leading character named So-ha who overcomes all obstacles in her unfortunate life, raising her niece altogether.

    Foresta Entertainment revealed, "She is fluent in three languages so she doesn't have a problem with overseas activities. Her fluency in Chinese helps her get continuous love calls from the country".

    Meanwhile, Lee Da-hae has about 2,600,000 followers on her Chinese SNS Weibo and was once an issue for her appearance on a Chinese program without an interpreter after having mastered the language for 7 years since the release of 2005 "Green Rose".

    Actress Lee Da Hae has been cast to play the heroine of upcoming Chinese drama, "Love Actually," a story about a talented chef's success. Lee Da Hae will play the main character, Wang Xiao Xia, a naturally talented chef working part-time at a small restaurant as she struggles to raise her nephew. She later gets a chance to work at a prominent dim sum restaurant and becomes successful in the end.

    Since "Green Rose" gained much popularity in China back in 2005, Lee Da Hae has been diligently learning Chinese to communicate with her fans. Previously, she has appeared on a Chinese variety show "Happy Camp" without an interpreter, proving her fluency in the language. Lee Da Hae also has a big Chinese fan base, over 2.6 million following her on Weibo, Chinese twitter.

    Lee Da Hae will begin filming "Love Actually" in Shanghai on March 5.

    Will Lee Da Hae Become the Next Big Hallyu Star in China?

    Actress Lee Da Hae (28) may have been popular in Korea for the past decade, but she is expanding her horizon and becoming a hallyu star these days. Her popularity in China spread through her role in KBS2's 2005 drama, My Girl. Her confirmed role in an upcoming Chinese drama Love Recipe has further raised her appeal there.

    Since My Girl came out seven years ago, we were curious to see if Lee was still attracting the interest of the Chinese people. Therefore we went and found out just how popular she was in China.

    F120302_006_1.JPG


    On March 2, a rep from her agency said, "Lee Da Hae has been cast as a lead in the Chinese drama Love Recipe and will head to Shanghai on March 5 to start filming for the production."

    In Love Recipe, Lee plays the role of Soha, raising her niece on her own and overcoming many obstacles to become a successful dumpling restaurant chef.

    A rep from the drama revealed that rising Chinese star Jung Won Chang will also star in the drama. According to a Chinese portal website, Jung ranked as the 36th most popular celebrity in China.

    Taiwanese director Lin He Long, known for his romantic comedies such as Flower Boy Basketball Court, Why Why Love, and Hi, My Sweetheart, has been picked as the drama's director. It appears Lee is in good hands under Lin's direction, and should be able to increase her popularity in both China and Taiwan.

    It doesn't end there. Lee also has 2,670,000 fans on Weibo, China's version of Twitter. More incredibly, she gets anywhere from 1000-3000 replies in a matter of seconds whenever she posts something in Chinese. Furthermore, the press has been following her every move, enough to completely fill her Cyworld homepage with pictures.

    Of course, it's still too early to declare Lee as the top hallyu star in China. Following in the footsteps of Lee Min Ho, Choo Ja Hyun, Lee Young Ae, Song Hye Gyo, and Jun Ji Hyun have all built a considerable fan base that exceeds Lee’s following.

    However, the fact that she is appearing in a Chinese drama is no small feat. Her popularity could skyrocket just as Choo's had, and her fluent Mandarin could prove to be a big advantage. It will be interesting to see if Lee will be able to propel herself as China's top Hallyu star through her appearance in Love Recipe.

    As mentioned in the news, this will be the first Chinese drama Lee Da Hae will do and will mark her debut in the Chinese entertainment industry. She has been studying Chinese language for about 7 years now to make this step.

    Here is LDH greeting video for the drama which she spoke Mandarin in it:

    LDH "Love Actually" Drama Greeting

    LDH already arrived to Shanghai yesterday to start preparing for the filming which she will start on 5th March and I think Joe will be also joining her in the filming on that day as he already arrived to Shanghai few days ago.

    LDH and Joe Cheng are already friends and here is a picture from Montblanc Event back in 2010 and from that time they became close friends:

    6162970149ead6d3d114b68db48d1abd_large.jpg

    And from Chinese news it seems that DaHae and Joe recommended each other to the producers when negotiated with them for the drama because they wanted to working with each other in a project :w00t: ;) So, we will surely expect a great chemistry between the two of them :wub:

    "爱的蜜方" 是李多海与郑元畅、李易峰的首次合作。据制片方透露,在他们分别洽谈李多海和郑元畅时,两人因彼此在韩国和中国台湾居高不下的人气而分别向制片方推荐希望互相合作。

    "The love honey parties" is the first collaboration of Lee Da Hae and Zheng Yuan Chang, Yi Li peak. Respectively, according to the producers in their negotiations Lee Da Hae and Zheng Yuan Chang, two for each other, the high popularity in South Korea and China Taiwan, respectively, recommended to the producers hope that the mutual cooperation.

    And I want also to share that LDH has mentioned in her weibo and twitter when leaving Korea to Shanghai that she will be staying there 2.5 months for the filming.

    And from some Chinese news the drama will be airing in summer and most probably around July or August. Really can't wait for the broadcast :wub:

    Also this drama may be the last project before Joe Cheng before his enlistment in the army.

    Based on the synopsis released Xiao Xia is first mistaken as Hao Jie Girl friend and so, I think we will get to see a lot of interactions between them and so, I think we will have a Love Triangle with Hao Feng as well :wub:

    And LOL Golden_ochna, I am relieved that both our male leads are tall (both more than 180 although Joe Cheng is taller :D ) but I think we won't see LDH wearing a lot of high heels in this drama as Xiao Xia :lol:

    And here is a first glance of LDH filming the drama, the weather seem to be really cold and raining in the past few days in Shanghai wish all the cast take care of them selves and keep worm :wub:

    Will Lee Da Hae′s Fluent Mandarin Make Her a Top Hallyu Star in China?
    CJ E&M enewsWorld Choi, EunHwa Translation Credit : Ju Ahn Lee

    Actress Lee Da Hae will costar with top Chinese actor Jung Won Chang in the upcoming Chinese drama Love Recipe.

    Lee will travel to Shanghai on March 5 to start shooting for the production of Love Recipe (directed by Lin He Long). Rising Chinese star, Jung, has been selected to work alongside Lee in the drama.

    E120305_002.jpg

    Jung gained fame in Korea and became a global star through the Taiwanese drama Playful Kiss. Lee and Jung’s meeting can be characterized as a collaborative work of two representative actors from their respective countries.

    In China, many are already referring to it as “the meeting between two great (actors),” elevating the already-high expectations of the drama.

    In Love Recipe, Lee plays the role of Soha, raising her niece on her own and overcoming many obstacles to become a successful dumpling restaurant chef.

    ch_1330908242_957062761_0.jpg

    ch_1330908243_957271324_1.jpg

    Lee’s drama My Girl (2008), Hello Baby (2007), and the recent Miss Ripley have all been big hits with Chinese viewers and she is well on her way to becoming a true hallyu star in China.

    More incredibly, Lee has over 2,600,000 followers on Weibo, China′s version of Twitter, and continues to gain popularity as her fluent Mandarin has differentiated herself from many of the other hallyu stars.

    LOL, you have reminded me of that. I think I will need this cleanup as well :D

    About dubbing DaHae voice, this news mention that DaHae will speak her lines in Chinese and they won't be dubbing her voice :)

    http://translate.google.com.eg/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=ar&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Ftieba.baidu.com%2Fp%2F1439584574

    I am not sure if this is really true but we know she have been studying for about 3 months now on the script to be able to speak her lines in Chinese which will help to feel the character and communicate with her fellow actors better but this don't mean they won't be dubbing her voice after all specially because of the accent.

    We will need to wait and see :) But if this really happen I think she may become the first or at least one of the few (as I don't know if this happened before) foreign artists who act fully in Chinese which will be really remarkable :wub:

    Also actor Wong Che Wah "王志华" will appear in the drama, no reports about his role but I think he may be playing the role of Mr.Chen the father of our two male leads and the owner of the restaurant chain.
