Actor Park Si-hoo is returning in the new drama series “My Golden Life” for the first time since a sex scandal four years ago, in the role of a wealthy gentleman.

Park plays Choi Do-kyung, the son of an affluent chaebol family who has studied abroad and is studying business in his family-owned company.

The show marks Park’s first return to the Korean drama screen since he was embroiled in a sex scandal in 2013.

Park was sued by a woman for sexual assault but the charges were later dropped when Park countersued for libel and blackmail.

The drama series tells the story of Seo Ji-ahn, a poor woman whose father has been living under a false identity and the pretense of wealth. Seo herself seeks to escape poverty, even if only for the sake of appearances.

The main character Seo will be played by Shin Hye-sun, an actress who has been expanding her presence on the small and big screens lately.

The show begins airing on Sept. 2 at 8 p.m. on KBS. It will be available for international audiences on viki.com.
