Actress Lee Na-young is set to return to the small screen after nearly a decade with the new romantic-comedy series “Romance is a Bonus” (working title).

Lee will star opposite Lee Jong-suk in the new tvN series, which centers on colleagues at a publishing company.

Lee Na-young will play a character whose career has been put on hold despite having worked as a promising copywriter. She restarts her career at a new company where Cha Eun-ho, played by Lee Jong-suk, works as an editor-in-chief.

With Lee Jong-suk set to appear in a romantic comedy for the first time in his career, and Lee Na-young returning years after her last show “The Fugitive: Plan B,” the upcoming show has been hailed as one of the most anticipated shows of the year.

Adding to the excitement is director Lee Jung-Hyo, who was behind recent hit series like “The Good Wife,” which aired on the same channel.

“Romance is a Bonus” is scheduled to air early next year.
