Korean actress Han Ji-hye has been tapped to play the lead female role in a new Chinese drama, according to her agency Yedang Entertainment on Wednesday.

Han will play the role of Chun Chae-hee, a young woman with a strong passion for embroidery in search of her mother, in the 26-part drama to be helmed by top Chinese director Huang Jianzhong of "As You Wish" and "Good Woman".

"Han was chosen for the role because it was judged that she would suit the character perfectly", a representative from the drama's production company was quoted as saying. "She is already popular in China so we have hopes she will bring about a second Hallyu".

"I feel honored to star in this drama by such a famous director and to get to meet my fans in China", Han said.

Shooting for the drama will begin in mid-March and is scheduled to air in November through major Chinese broadcaster CCTV.

Han has appeared in numerous dramas and movies including KBS TV series "Sweet 18" and the daily drama "Likable or Not". She also played the leading role in the Korean film "My boyfriend is type-B".
