After hiatus, Uhm Jung-hwa to make return


Actress-singer Uhm Jung-hwa will make a return after eight years since the release of her 2008 single “D.I.S.C.O,” which featured Big Bang’s T.O.P.

According to Uhm’s agency, Mystic Entertainment, on Wednesday, the singer is in the final stages of recording a new album after a year of work. Among those featured on the album will be singer Lee Hyori.

The production for the new record will be handled by Cho Young-cheol, known for his work with K-pop acts like IU and Brown Eyed Girls. He is well regarded as being a hit maker in the industry, especially with female artists.

Uhm debuted as a singer in 1993 with her first single “Pupil,” and continued to release a string of hits over the decade including “A Rose of Betrayal” (1997), “Poison,” “Invitation” (1998), and “I Don’t Know” (1999).

Uhm also maintained a high-profile acting career since her debut, starring in films such as “Insadong Scandal” (2009), “Haeundae” (2009), “Bestseller” (2010) and “Wonderful Nightmare” (2015).
