Actor Lee Jong-suk and actress Han Hyo-joo will star in the new MBC drama series “W,” their management agencies confirmed Tuesday.

“Lee felt very glad to join such a good drama series. He became quite drawn to his role when he first read the synopsis,” said his agency NM Project.

The 26-year-old actor is a proven hitmaker who has starred in several popular TV dramas, including “School 2013,” (2013) “I Can Hear Your Voice” (2013) and “Pinocchio.” (2015) It has been about 1 1/2 years since his last drama ended in January 2015.

Meanwhile, Han is making a comeback to the small screen for the first time in six years after last appearing in the historical drama “Dongyi” in 2010.

She has showed off her acting mostly in films since then, such as “Masquerade,” (2012) “Cold Eyes” (2013) and “The Beauty Inside.” (2015)

The 16-episode romantic-suspense drama is written by Song Jae-jung, who previously worked on the tvN drama “Nine: Nine Time Travels” in 2013.

The drama is slated to start in July, following a contemporary drama called “Lucky Romance.”
