Actress Han Ye-seul and actor Sung Joon confirmed on Monday they will star in a new JTBC drama “Madam Antoine.”

Han, dubbed as the “queen of rom-com” will play Go Hye-rim, a fake fortune-teller, opposite Sung Joon, who will take the role of Choi Soo-hyun, a clinical psychologist.

“I fell for the drama’s unique story,” said Han. “I am really excited to return with an unconventional, fun work. I will do my best, so please look forward to kind and lovely Go Hye-rim.”

“I am very excited about the highly-engaging screenplay,” Sung said. “I feel assured working with director Kim Yoon-chul again. I will prepare hard and perform well.”

The drama is Sung Joon’s second project with director Kim after JTBC drama “Can We Get Married?” in 2012. Kim is also behind the popular drama “My Name is Kim Sam-soon.” Star writer Hong Jin-ah (“Beethoven Virus” and “The King Two Hearts”) will pen the script.

The new drama will follow JTBC series “D-Day” on Fridays and Saturdays beginning late November.
