Lee Young Ae To Return To The Small Screen After 11 Years

[by Sora Ghim] Actress Lee Young Ae has emerged from her 11-year absence and chosen ‘Saimdang, the Herstory (working title)’ as her return to the small screen.

On March 25, the producers of the drama, Group8 announced, “Actress Lee Young Ae is confirmed for drama ‘Saimdang’ and we will go into production to have the drama start airing in the first half of next year.”

After careful deliberation, Lee Young Ae has decided to return to the screen and has chosen ‘Saimdang,’ a Joseon period drama about the life of Shin Saimdang. In the drama, Lee Young Ae will play two roles, one as an art history university lecturer and the other as Shin Saimdang. Coming across Saimdang’s journal and a questionable artifact by chance, she tries to solve the secrets of the past as she goes back and forth from past and present. Lee Young Ae will show dynamic acting, raising the public’s anticipation for her return.

Representatives of the drama stated, “It is not an exaggeration to say we had Lee Young Ae in mind as Shin Saimdang while we were planning the drama. We determined that Lee Young Ae’s classic and elegant image matched well with Shin Saimdang. We are already excited to see how Lee Young Ae will portray Shin Saimdang.” They added, “We are preparing production to be able to air early next year. As soon as Lee Young Ae’s casting was heard, drama representatives from China and Japan flooded with questions. In particular, we are looking into simultaneously airing in China.”

Scriptwriter Park Eun Ryeong is in charge of this drama who also wrote ‘A Second Proposal,’ ‘The Woman Living Across the Street,’ and ‘Saving Mrs. Go Bong Shil.’

Lee Young Ae’s last drama role was in 2004 MBC drama ‘Jewel in the Palace’ and her last film was Park Chang Wook’s ‘Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.’ Her casting in ‘Saimdang’ marks her return to acting after 10 years and 11 years to the home theater.

Meanwhile, filming for ‘Saimdang, the Herstory’ will start in June. (photo by Group8)
