Han Hyo-joo heading back to TV


Actress Han Hyo-joo is returning to the small screen after a six-year hiatus.

Han’s agency, BH Entertainment, announced Tuesday that she will be starring in the new MBC drama series “W.”

“W” is the first drama Han has been cast in since the MBC historical drama “Dong Yi” back in 2010.

“W,” consisting of 16 episodes, will feature actor Lee Jong-seok as Han’s male counterpart. The melodrama will start airing in July.

Han started her career on the popular sitcom “Nonstop 5” (2004-05). Her acting prowess was brought to the fore in the drama “Dong Yi,” for which she won multiple awards at the 2010 MBC Drama Awards.

Han then shifted her focus to the big screen, taking on roles in movies like “Masquerade” (2012), “Cold Eyes” (2013) and “Love, Lies,” which will be opening in theaters on April 13.
