South Korean actress Lee Young-ae is returning to the small screen with a mystery drama, a PR agency said Tuesday.

The script writing for the new series, with the title roughly translated as “Different Dream,” has yet to be completed and the shooting will start next year, the Seoul-based agency The Tik Tok said.

Set in the Japanese colonial period of Korea (1910-1945), the series revolves around a surgical doctor named Lee Young-jin (played by Lee) who is adopted by a Japanese couple and later hired as a spy by the Provisional Government of Korea in Shanghai.

The actress last appeared in “Saimdang, Memoir of Colors.” The 28-episode series was aired on SBS TV from Jan. 26 to May 4. (Yonhap)
