A new TV series starring two top stars Lee Young-ae and Song Seung-hun is scheduled to air on SBS in January next year, the broadcaster said on Tuesday.
The drama has drawn much attention with its star-studded cast and particularly Lee's return to the small screen after a more than 10-year hiatus.
The drama tells the story of Shin Saimdang (1504-1551), a renowned artist and writer during the Chosun Dynasty.
Lee plays both Shin Saimdang and a present-day art historian, with time shifting to the past and back as the mysteries of Shin's diaries and paintings are unraveled. Song plays a free spirit raised in a strict family, and his life changes after an encounter with Shin.
SBS is seeking to broadcast the show in China simultaneously.
