LKL Celeb of the Month #1: Lee Da Hae

The first in a series – we select the celeb who’s come to our attention this month, often driven by the number of times readers have searched for the name.

Lee Da Hae

My GirlLee Da Hae (이다해), real name Byun Da-hae (변다해), born April 19, 1984.

Best known for her role in My Girl (right), a TV Drama from 2005, which co-starred Lee Dong-wook (이동욱), Lee Jun-ki (이준기) and Park Si-yeon (박시연). LKL reader favourite Lee Eon-jeong also had a role. Other dramas include Love of a Thousand Years (2003), Sweet 18 (2004), Green Rose (2005), Hello Miss (2007) and Robber (2008).

While best known for her appearances in TV dramas, she’s also been seen hosting the 2007 Mnet Korean Music Festival, and starred in the promo video, I love Rock n Roll:

Her English benefited from a five year stint in Australia before she launched her acting career. And like many actresses, she has appeared in numerous commercials. Regular readers of the Chosun Ilbo’s website will know her as the face of that infuriating kimchi fridge advertisement at the top of the page:
