Korean actors Lee Yeon-hee and Lee Sun-kyun have confirmed to star in upcoming MBC drama.

The two stars will pair up in MBC’s new Wednesday and Thursday drama series “Miss Korea” (translated title), Lee Sun-kyun’s agency Hodoo entertainment said on Thursday.

Set to crank in the middle of November, the upcoming drama will portray an ordinary girl who comes out to be Korea’s beauty pageant, Miss Korea, with the help of her neighbors.

While scriptwriter Seo Sook-hyang of MBC’s hit dramas “Golden Time” and “Pasta” will pen the drama, actor Lee Sung-min will also star in the drama.

“Miss Korea” is set to hit airwaves in mid December as the follow up to current medical drama series “Medical Top Team.”
