Korean actor Park Si-hoo will make his return to acting later this year, two years after he was embroiled in a rape scandal involving an aspiring actress.

"Love After Love" (literal translation), which is being jointly produced by Korean and Chinese studios, will see Park in the male lead role opposite actress Yoon Eun-hye, who is an established Korean actress.

The film, which is currently in post-production, will be released in the latter half of this year in Korea, China and Japan. Filming has already concluded, which took place over the past four months.

Park, 37, was embroiled in allegations of rape by a woman aged about 20 in early 2013, though the actor maintained she had consented to sex. The woman, who claimed to have been intoxicated at the time, eventually dropped charges against the actor.

"Love After Love" marks Park's first screen role since the 2012-2013 television series "Cheongdamdong Alice."

The film, which reportedly took two years to develop and pre-produce, follows the tale of a disillusioned man who discovers love after the death of his wife, culminating in a "poignant happy ending."

Park previously won acclaim in other lead acting roles, such as the period drama "The Princess' Man" in 2011 and the thriller film "Confessions of Murder" in 2012.
