SEOUL (Yonhap) — Actress Han Hyo-joo will make a comeback on the small screen after a six-year hiatus, her talent agency said Tuesday.

Han will take a lead role in the forthcoming MBC TV series “W,” her first appearance in a TV drama since the historical drama “Dongyi” in 2010, BH Entertainment said.

“W,” a 16-episode romantic, suspense melodrama, is scheduled to hit the air in July, it added.

Actor Lee Jong-suk was cast as Han’s counterpart in the new series.

Han recently appeared as a “gisaeng,” a professional Korean female entertainer, in “Love, Lies,” a domestic period drama film depicting the story of Korea’s last “gisaengs” who dreamed of becoming top singers under Japan’s colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula. The movie is set to open in local theaters on April 13.
