Korean actress Chae Jung-an has been cast in a new TV drama “Yong Pal Yi,” alongside celebrated actress Kim Tae-hee, according to media sources Thursday.

Kim places a wealthy heiress in the TV drama, to be broadcast by SBS, while Chae will play a supporting role as her sister-in-law. Jung’s role will reportedly be her attempt at more serious acting, in contrast to her more light-hearted roles in the past.

The upcoming TV drama will also mark Chae’s return to the small screen in a year, after the MBC drama “A New Leaf.”

“Yong Pal Yi” will be set in modern-day Seoul, with the main character, a visiting doctor, played by Joo Won. The doctor’s younger sister suffers from a kidney disease, which inspires him to become a better person.

Chae Jung-an is perhaps best known for starring in the hit 2007 TV drama “Coffee Prince.”

The TV drama will air in August on Wednesday and Thursday evenings after current SBS drama “Mask.”
