Singer and actress Yoona may take the lead role in tvN‘s upcoming TV series “K2,” according to S.M. Entertainment Tuesday.

“We stay positive (on her acting in the series),” a source from S.M. Entertainment was quoted as saying in news reports.

The reports came about a week after Yoona’s agency was reported to have rejected the role earlier.

“We rejected the offer once, but Yoona was later offered the role again,” the source added.

If Yoona accepts the role, “K2” will mark her first tvN series and the return to Korean small screen after KBS 2TV‘s 2013 series “Prime Minister and I.”

Yoona has been offered a role of a hidden daughter of a presidential candidate and a celebrity, who suffers from mental disorders.

Ji Chang-wook and Song Yoon-ah have accepted roles in the show and attended a script-reading session on July 17.

“K2” will follow “Good Wife,” Friday-Saturday series starring Yoo Ji-tae and Jeon Do-yeon.
