Lee will be playing Cha Eun-ho, a genius author and the youngest editor-in-chief at the publishing company where he works.

“As a fan of director Lee and screenwriter Jung, I am happy to take part in this drama,” Lee said. “I am also excited because it is my first time to star in a romantic comedy, so hopefully I can show a different side of myself.”

The new drama is getting ready to air in early 2019.
