Actress Song Hye-kyo makes her comeback with a new soap opera titled "Worlds Within" four years after her last drama "Full House" in 2004.

"When I first read the synopsis I found it very interesting. As I respect and strongly believe in director Pyo Min-soo and writer Noh Hee-kyung, there was no reason to decline," Song said. Departing from her previous feminine image, she takes the role of Joo Jun-young, a promising rookie TV producer, who exudes tomboyish charm.

"I tried to look like a real TV producer, as natural as possible while avoiding looking dirty or unkempt. Of the characters that I have played, this is the most realistic."

"I felt physically exhausted shooting this drama since I had got used to movie production through three films in four years. Shooting a drama requires quick responses, so I had a hard time at the beginning. But whenever I was at a loss, director Pyo guided me immediately, so I was able to adapt to the new environment soon."

"Worlds Within," about the hectic lives of a drama production team, starts on KBS 2 next Monday.
