Korean actress Kim So-yeon [Namoo Actors]

Korean actress Kim So-yeon is coming back to the small screen in a role opposite leading actor Lee Joon-gi.

Kim has decided to become the leading lady of an upcoming MBC drama tentatively titled “Two Weeks,” which will be aired starting August, her agency Namoo Actors said in a statement on Wednesday.

She is going to portray a smart and warmhearted prosecutor named Park Jae-kyung, who is going to reveal the truth of the homicide case of Jang Tae-san [Lee], the falsely charged man struggling to save his young daughter with leukemia in two weeks.

This will be Kim’s second time to work with hit scriptwriter So Hyun-gyeong, who penned the actress’ 2010 romcom “Prosecutor Princess,” in which Kim also played a public official opposite actor Park Si-hoo.

Kim, 32, started her career in 1987 as child actress and grabbed attention with her role in SBS hit sitcom “Soonpoong Clinic” in 1999. She shot to stardom the next year with her evil woman role in MBC TV series “All About Eve,” co-starring Jang Dong-gun and Chae Rim.

Her recent TV works include KBS blockbuster “IRIS,” SBS “Princess Prosecutor,” SBS sports drama “Dr. Champ,” SBS thriller “Athena” and SBS historic drama “The Great Seer.”
