SEOUL, Jan. 10 (Yonhap) -- Actress Son Ye-jin has been cast in a new TV series on cable channel JTBC, making a comeback to the small screen after five years, the channel said Wednesday.
The drama, roughly translated as "Pretty Sister Who Treats Me to Meals," is scheduled to air in March.
The new series revolves around Yoon Jin-ah, played by Son, a 30-something supervisor at a coffee franchise, who suddenly feels romantic feelings towards her best friend's younger brother.
It will be produced by Ahn Pan-seok, the creator of a number of critically acclaimed and popular dramas over the decades, including "Behind the White Tower" (2007), "Secret Love Affair" (2014) and "Heard It Through the Grapevine" (2015). He also directed the romantic drama film "Over the Border" in 2006.
"I always wanted to work with director Ahn Pan-seok. I am excited to see how the drama will turn out when Ahn's unique expression of delicate emotions meets a relatable story," Son was quoted as saying by the channel.
The last drama she appeared in was KBS 2TV's "Don't Look Back: The Legend of Orpheus" in 2013.
On the comeback to TV, she said, "I am worried a bit, but I feel very excited. I will prepare well for the drama to show my best performance."
