K-pop idol group MBLAQ member Lee Joon will portray a romance between a woman in her forties.

Joon and actress Park Jin-hee have been cast as lead roles of new film project, tentatively titled “Botox,” set to crank in this month, the film’s producing film Studio East said in a press release Tuesday.

Lee will take on 21-year-old boy named Gun-ni,  who has pure heart to devote everything for his loving one, while Park will turn into 42-year-old would-be writer named Young-sook, who goes through inner conflict after receiving Gun-ni’s enthusiastic confession.

Helmed by veteran romance comics writer Hwang Mi-na, the upcoming film is based on the web cartoon of the same name much beloved by readers in their thirties and forties.

Lee Joon, 25, is currently busying with promotional activities of his first major film “Rough Play,” which opened in the Korean theaters last Thursday.

Park, 35, recently wrapped up starring in MBC’s 120-part historic epic “Hur Jun, the Original Story.”
