Actress Kim Tae-hee (31) will take the lead role in Fuji TV's new romantic comedy, tentatively titled "Me and My Star's 99 Days," her agency said Thursday.

The storyline centers on the love affair between a Korean actress who is pursuing a career in Japan and a quiet 40-year-old Japanese man.

Japanese actor Nishijima Hidetoshi (40), who was named Best Supporting Actor at the 2008 Yokohama Film Festival, will play the male lead.

The show will air every Sunday at 9 p.m. from October. / Aug. 26, 2011 08:54 KST
