      Actress So Yu-jin is returning with a new TV series on KBS after taking a break to have a baby.

      Speaking at a media event in Seoul on Wednesday, So said, "Even during my pregnancy, I still got some media exposure because of my husband, who has become popular [through his TV shows]. But I want to be remembered for what I have done, rather than as someone's wife."

      Not so long ago, restaurateur Baek Jong-won was only known as actress So's husband, but now he is more famous than she is, thanks to a couple of cooking shows on which he has captivated the hearts of viewers with his relaxed, easygoing demeanor and easy-to-follow recipes.

      "After taking a break from acting to have a baby, I wasn't sure how to get back into it. But my fans offered me support through social media, and this gave me confidence. I'm excited about getting back to where I used to be," she said.

      "Five Children" is a soap that follows the members of a family through conflicts and reconciliations as they seek happiness and share their love for each other. So plays a divorced single mother raising three children alone.

      The soap will air every weekend starting this Saturday.
