Lee Da In Shares Her Excitement For Returning With

Lee Da In is finally returning with her first new drama since tying the knot with Lee Seung Gi!

Set in the Joseon dynasty, “My Dearest” is a new MBC historical romance drama about the love story between a man named Lee Jang Hyun (Namgoong Min), who has declared that he will not marry, and a woman named Yoo Gil Chae (Ahn Eun Jin), who dreams of finding love again even after two failed marriages.

In her first drama role in three years, Lee Da In stars as Yoo Gil Chae’s best friend Kyung Eun Ae, a noble and graceful woman that always manages to see the bright side of things. Her character embodies strength as she lives out her life through the harshness of war.

Reflecting on her time as Kyung Eun Ae, Lee Da In commented that the first thing that pulled her towards the role was the script.

The actress, who has been shooting “My Dearest” since last winter, explained, “First of all, the script was well-written. I remember being so engrossed in the script while reading it that I didn’t realize how much time had passed. The more I read it, the more fun the story became, and I started getting excited for it. I was taken by the notion that I wanted to become a part of this drama.”

Describing her character, Lee Da In remarked, “While she is always loving and has a warm heart, she is a strong person at her core. As a wise woman, she always maintains her cool, but I think the viewers will find her odd and cute moments amusing and unexpectedly charming.”

She added, “Eun Ae always maintains her composure, but there still needs to be an element of brightness within her. So I paid a lot of attention to making sure that she is not depicted as simply a quiet and dark character. I focused on expressing both the upbeat and the calm aspects of her personality while keeping them balanced, so she wouldn’t be too cheerful or too dark.”

Looking ahead to the premiere, Lee Da In also described what she’s looking forward to the most. She said, “Personally, as I read through the script, the scenes with Gil Chae and Jang Hyun really made my heart flutter. And when I saw the two actors in action, they were just as amazing as I had expected. So I’m already excited to see how that relays on screen. Also, another thing to look out for is how the women endure and mature through the harshness of war and being refugees.”

The actress wrapped up by saying, “‘My Dearest’ has everything from a well-written script to amazing cinematography and a talented cast. It’s such a great drama that I’m honored to be a part of it. Please join us in watching ‘My Dearest’ this summer.”

“My Dearest” will premiere on August 4 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
