Actress Han Ji-hye [10Asia]

Actress Han Ji-hye will star in a historical drama set to go on air next year, according to her management staff on Wednesday.

An official in charge of Han's career confirmed today that Han has been cast in a new MBC historical drama named "The Duo" ("Jiakpae" translated into "mate") which will go on air every Mondays and Tuesdays starting February of next year.

The official added however that basic terms of the contract have been agreed on verbally and additional details have yet to be coordinated.

In the new drama, Han will play the daughter of a village school teacher who has deep interest in education and is smart enough to influence other people in the story.

Set in the late Joseon period (1392-1910), the show, also starring actor Cheon Jeong-myeong, will tell of two boys whose identities get swapped.

Han, 27, whose real name is Lee Ji-hye, made her debut as a supermodel in 2001 and has since appeared in many dramas such as "Summer Scent" (2003), "Sweet 18" (2004), and "East of Eden" (2008) and films "My boyfriend is type-B" (2005) and "Blades of Blood" (2010).

After getting married in September 2009, she signaled her comeback to the small screen in October this year with a role in KBS "Drama Special - Pianist", a single-episode drama she starred with Lee Min-ho from the popular boy band SHINee.
