Actor Ju Ji-hoon will return to the small screen for the first time in about three years with a TV series called “Item.”

The MBC drama, set to air every Monday and Tuesday beginning in January, is based on a fantasy webtoon series that centers on a man and woman with supernatural powers. It will take over the time slot for “Bad Detective” once that series comes to an end.

Scriptwriter Jung Yi Do was also behind OCN’s thriller series “Save Me.”

In “Item,” Ju will play the role of Kang Gon, a kindhearted prosecutor who is willing to sacrifice everything to save his nephew. Since his last TV appearance, he has starred in a number of successful films, including “Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds” and “The Spy Gone North.”

The film “Dark Figure of Crime,” in which Ju plays killer Kang Tae-oh, is set to open in October.
