Actress Lee Na-young co-stars with heartthrob Lee Jong-suk in a new TV series set to be aired on cable channel tvN this weekend.
In the romantic comedy "Romance Is a Bonus Book," Lee Na-young plays a woman who used to be a successful copywriter, but is now struggling to return to work after a divorce.
"When I choose roles, they should be ones that I feel attracted to, and my next concern would be to find a part that I can do well in portraying the character," Lee said at a press event for the series in Seoul on Monday.
"Personally, I don't know exactly how tough the job market is especially for married women, but I know that many of them who quit their jobs to care for children after marriage want to join the workforce again," she added.
In the series, co-star Lee Jong-suk plays a best-selling writer, and is expected to excite fans with a romantic chemistry with Lee. "I have mostly appeared in fantasies or serious dramas, but this time I feel pressured as it is my first romantic comedy," he said.
