Alright, I LOVE LOVE Seo Jihye. And I'm okay with Uee. But Lee Yongwoo????? OMG, watching him trying to emote some sort of feelings or expression is so painful. Guy can't act, but why is he getting main lead role already?

Hopefully there will be 2nd male lead and he will be infinitely better than Lee Yongwoo. So I can root for him instead.

Seo Ji-hye drops golf drama

February 8th, 2010 // by javabeans

Just a few days after the main cast was announced, lead actress Seo Ji-hye has dropped out of the golfing drama Birdie Buddy [버디버디] (which I had mistaken for Buddy Buddy; the series is based on the manhwa Buddy).

According to production company Group Eight, Seo had agreed to play the role of talented golfer Min Hae-ryung and they proceeded to the final negotiation stages, but differences arose on both sides and she decided against the role after all. After the rest of the cast — led by Lee Yong-woo, UEE — participate in the drama’s production press conference on the 10th, the production will begin looking for a replacement.

Song hopes to sweep Asia off its feet again with "Birdie"


Group Eight CEO Song Byung-joon has high expectations for his new TV series "Birdie Buddy," saying he hopes the show becomes as big as his mega-hit production "Boys Over Flowers" from early last year.

"I have the desire to shake up Asia again with this drama, our first production of the year," Song said during a press conference held at High1 Resort in the Gangwon Province of South Korea on Wednesday.

"Boys," based on Japanese comic series "Hana Yori Dango," took Asia by storm last year during and after its airing in Korea. The show recorded average ratings of 30 percent while selling to over 10 countries in the region.

"Birdie" is also based on a comic -- this time by famed Korean cartoonist Lee Hyun-sae -- who received a presidential award for his golf series of the same name.

"Female Koreans are the best golfers in the world. I started wondering what it would be like, growing up as a female golfer, and decided I wanted to focus on that through a drama," Song explained, adding the show will express what golf is in detail and also contain educational information about the sport.

"I also want to tell the story of our [Korean] mothers throughout Asia and these factors combined will serve as the basis to the drama's success," Song stated.

"Birdie," starring female idol group After School member Uee and dancer-turned-actor Lee Yong-woo, is set to go into shoot starting March.

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.

Ooooooo so Uee is going to be the lead!!! Very nice.

I can't wait to see her! Very different from her role in YB -- prolly a good thing. I don't think a lot of ppl liked her in there cuz of her role.


I think JJH is perfect to play the child role

and how interesting that 3 from the cast of highkick have been drawn again for this drama!

the Lee Yong Woo guy in the press conference pictures looks like he doesn't wanna be there...lol. he looks so bored and uninterested.

Anyways, i kinda like UEE. Maybe i'll watch this drama, but the "GOLF" concept of it makes me kinda bored, sorry. but let's see how it's going to be once it's out.




OOH!... now i remember where i've seen Lee Yong Woo!...I just searched him and found out that he's from "MAMA 2NE1 musical!" he's the guy that was partnered with Dara in "Kiss" performance as well as the other girls!...oooohh...

so he's that HOT guy?! wow, he's talented :) I'm starting to like him...

I haven't seen him act YET, but in the 2NE1 musical he's pretty good and charming, I'm looking forward for his acting here :)

When Seo Ji Hye revealed that she was going to be in this drama; i thought she was the lead girl. But it turns out that UEE was the lead from the beginning. I thought that UEE was 2nd lead and they made her the lead after Seo Ji Hye dropped out. It's rather odd because UEE is still rather new to the acting game. But i support her. Though i dont think it will be that interesting. Golf seems kinda boring but i'll be a good acting experience for her.

GO UEE!!!!!

Park Han Bi, the new member of T-max will be joining the cast as Sung Mi Soo's younger brother, Sung Tae Gab.


Park Han-Bi, the youngest member of T-MAX, will play the role of Uee’s brother.

Park Han-Bi has been cast as Seong Tae-Gab, the brother of Seong Mi-Su played by Uee in SBS golf and martial arts drama ’Birdie Buddy’. Seong Tae-Gab is a troublemaker dreaming to be a musician. While leading a hopeless life after graduating from high school, he gets a chance to listen to the performance of a clarinet and dreams to be a musician.

‘Birdie Buddy’ is being filmed in Kangwon-do. Park Han-Bi, who is making a debut as a singer and an actor simultaneously, remarked, “It is a lot of pressure on me. Yet I will show a perfect transformation into Seong Tae-Gab in drama and into a member of T-MAX on the stage.” He is a sophomore in media and drama at Myoung Ji University. He has been preparing for his acting career by performing in plays.

Meanwhile, the first original album of T-MAX will be released in May.
