Hallyu star Ji Jin-hee has been cast to co-star opposite actress Han Hyo-joo in a new TV series directed by Lee Byung-hoon, producer of hit TV series “Jewel in the Palace" and “Isan.”

Ji's agency N.O.A. Entertainment said Wednesday that the actor will play the role of King Sukjong from the Joseon Dynasty in the historical epic tentatively titled "Dong Yi" in English.
Sukjong, who rose to his position as king at the age of 14, displayed charisma and leadership in governing his people while wholeheartedly loving Dong Yi, played by Han in the drama. Dong Yi grows up to become Choi Suk-bin, a consort of Sukjong and the mother of King Youngjo.

This is Ji's second time working with producer Lee -- he became popular throughout Asia after starring alongside actress Lee Young-ae in the director's hit TV series “Jewel”.

It is his first time teaming up with Han however, who is currently once of the most sought-after actresses in the entertainment industry for her role in drama "Shining Inheritance" earlier this year which ended its run with a 41.7 percent rating.
The 38-year-old actor has appeared in dozens of movies and dramas since his debut in 1999. His new film “Paradise” is set for release this month.
