    Wow...so many comments abt the plastic surgery ^^' I saw her in Hotel King before My Girl, and frankly I didn't even notice - actually I was shocked by how similar she looked, aside from her hair. She looked beautiful then, she looks beautiful now; I don't see what the problem is. At the end of the day ps is just another kind of body modification, and one that's very common in Korea. Do you rant at people who get piercings or tattoos? Obviously it's not a great thing if people feel insecure in their appearance, and alter themselves due to pressure, but this is a decision Da Hae made about her own body, and I think it'd be nice if people could have faith that actually she's a mature woman who can make her own choices. If she wants a v-line face and she has the money who is anyone to stand in her way? She still has an adorably cheeky smile, and abundant charisma, so let's just keep praying she'll play opposite Dong Wook a bunch more times, bc the ships are unreal ^^ I love you Da Hae!! ^^ x

    Couldn't agree more. My Girl is one of the very few Kdramas that I love watching over and over again. Despite how old it is ,how outdated the outfits they wear and the mobile phones which remind me of my childhood ,I still watch My Girl scenes almost every week. Such a chemistry she and Lee Dong Wook has.SO adorable Yoo Rin look(ed).It was only a few days ago that I googled to see how she looks now and when the results came I double checked for the spelling mistakes and it was all correct. OH MY! Did I just teleported to another dimension?? Because that is clearly not the Lee Da Hae that I knew and adored.She is damn unrecognizable now!!!!!It's fine to go through a mild plastic surgery ,like who doesn't want to if they have sooo much of money to throw ,with the aging factor and all let's say it's OKAY for the sake of the argument! BUT...TO COMPLETELY TRANSFORM HER LOOK???HOW PATHETIC! I am very very very sad that my Yoo Rin is no more.I can imagine what she wanted to look like ; "THE COMMON KOREAN LOOK" That just broke my heart!!

    I reeeeally wished the Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae duo to be together once more and with all the intimate scenes in Hotel KIng which had romantic scenes that I always prayed for didn't excite me.She is not the one I know.SHE IS DIFFERENT!!! I have lost my unnie :(

    If any..any Korean actress is reading these fan comments..lol (well ,Chon Sung Yi read ) This is my advice to you. We fans love you FOR HOW YOU BRING LIFE TO THE CHARACTER THAT YOU ARE PORTRAYING.YOU ARE BORN WITH NATURAL BEAUTY!!!!!!WHY LOSE YOURSELF TO GO FOR THAT SHITTY LAME COMMON KOREAN LOOK??? CHUH!!!! If you think plastic surgery is the ticket to retain in the industry well you are mistaken.We don't care about your body structure,we don't give any damn about your nose shape,who would stop liking you for the fat in your neck??? PATHETIC!!!! JUST PATHETIC!!! We love chubby cheeks,slim cheeks short or tall ,curly hair or straight hair as long as you are YOU! COMEON KOREA! Who brought in this mentality??? If you are so insecure about how you look ,don't expect us to keep loving you.We need inspirations.We follow you.We learn through what you put into life.PLEASE DON"T MAKE US LOSE THE STARS WE LOVE.

    I wonder if Lee Da Hae everrr regrets about the PS she did.And her boobs are too.She barely had a cleve in the towel scene in My girl and look at her now.DAMN AGAIN! Why can't they be grateful; for what God gavw them??? She never wanted anyyyy kind of adjustements...I was always envying her natural beauty,in my head I was like "She doesn't need to straighten her hair even,without even her make up she looks like a doll.Her cheeks and that smile how fortunate" But after seeing her recent pictures I took all my words back.

    Afterall it's what she desired.Now that she looks like who she always wanted ..well I can be okay with that too.However I have lost MY GIRL,MY LEE DA HAE,MY YOO RIN!!! Hope this comment would open someone's eyes regarding changing the appearnaces just for the sake of attracting more people.

    I still wish that Lee Dong Wook would marry her.Never mind,what diference would it make? She's not the same.Hope the Korean actresses would someday start to accept the fact that we love them for who they are and not what they look like.God please teach them and make them understand.

      She was already beautiful in the first place. Maybe she do regret it for doing PS at some point. It's definitely hard to come on top again if she's always on hiatus. Anyway, I wish for her success in the future.

    The surgery ruined her face tbh, she was gorgeous years ago but then she overdid it now her face looks like a mask which is a shame since she's a good actress.

    she probably need to sleep with so many directors and producer to get a role it seems.She needs a great charming actor to make a hit.

      Totally unnecessary comment! She's a wonderful actress and you're just some loser who knows nothing about her. Honestly, how pathetic is your life that you have to sit here on MyDramaList and spread libellous rumors about someone. At least she can get a role, what do you work as? A cashier at McD?

      Although I agree that the comment was unnecessary, there is nothing wrong with working as a cashier at McDonalds or anywhere for that matter, a job is a job.

    i'm not against PS. i know they all do it in this industry but LDHs mimics dont seem to be the same as before. she had much more expressions in the past. i blame all the botox and ps at such a young age.

    I like her as an actress and try to follow her dramas, but I wish she didn't do so much plastic surgery as she didn't need it AT ALL ! In My Girl she was very, very pretty just stunning wow. But then in Hotel King I almost didn't recognize her. Such a shame. Too much PS just butchers the face more and more..
