SBS’s hit series “Jang Ok Jeong” stars Hong Soo-hyun and Lee Sang-yeob will be portraying a loving couple in a new MBC drama.

Hong and Lee have been confirmed to take on the leading roles in MBC’s new weekend drama “Love Doesn’t Go Away” (translated title), the channel said through a press release Wednesday.

The actress takes on the female lead Song Mi-joo, who has considerate and careful personality despite her young age. Though she is a contract worker in a bank, her diligent attitude makes her parents proud, MBC explained.

Lee will play the male lead Jung Jae-min, who looks immature but is considerate. He is jobless, which makes the character seems childish and perky, but he has sincere feelings for Mi-joo.

The drama, centering on a couple’s remarriage in the twilight years of their lives, will premiere in September after MBC weekend drama “Pots of Gold” ends its run.
