The new series will be reuniting Hye-kyo with 'Descendants of the Sun' writer Kim Eun-sook

South Korean actress Song Hye-kyo is reuniting with 2016’s Descendants of the Sun screenwriter Kim Eun-sook for a new Korean drama series.

Studio Dragon and Hwa & Dam Pictures, the studios behind the still unnamed show, said that they are still looking for more cast members. The series, which will reportedly be directed by Ahn Gil-ho (Record of Youth, Memories of the Alhambra) is slated for a late 2021 or early 2022 premiere.

Hye-kyo, 39, and Eun-sook last worked together during the hit 2016 drama Descendants of the Sun. Eun-sook has also worked on other K-dramas, like Goblin, The King: Eternal Monarch, and Secret Garden.

Hye-kyo’s other leading roles include the series The Queens, Autumn in My Heart, All In, The Grandmaster, My Brilliant Life, and 2018’s Encounter with Park Bo Gum. – Rappler.com
