Top actress Choi Ji-woo is preparing for her first role in a TV drama since she appeared on MBC in 2011.
SBS announced on Wednesday that Choi has been cast as the lead role in an upcoming drama scheduled to begin in September. It is based on the hit Japanese TV soap "Housekeeper Mita," which enjoyed stellar ratings of over 40 percent when it was broadcast in Japan by NTV in 2011.
The plot begins with a mysterious housekeeper joining a recently widowed father and his four children. The new arrival, who shows barely any trace of emotion, acts as a catalyst for the family members to understand each other better and reconcile their relationships.
"I didn't hesitate to choose this project because I was mesmerized by the moving story and the unique charm of the starring character," said Choi. "This will be a new challenge for me as an actress, and I'll be able to show a new side of myself."
