Actress E Ji-ah says she wants to repay those that stood by her during her incident with rock icon Seo Taiji by making her return to acting.
She made the remark at a press conference held in Seoul on Monday for her upcoming MBC TV series "Flower, Me Too" (translated title), while speaking about making her comeback in seven months after news broke out about her secretive marriage and divorce to Seo.
The news had put the country into a state of shock since both were believed to be single and just the previous month, she had admitted to dating top actor Jung Woo-sung. Since then, she had kept out of the public's eye.
"I was kind of surprised at myself as well [for making a return] but everyone around me seemed to be having a more difficult time than I was so I felt that returning to where I belong, which is acting, would be the way to repay them," E explained.
She then said, "Director Ko Dong-sun (whose works included MBC's "Queen of Housewives") and scenarist Kim Do-woo of MBC's hit series 'My Name is Kim Sam-soon' were a big help too. And I felt a kind of warmth to the drama's storyline as well."
The show, also starring member Lee Gi-kwang, Han Go-eun and Seo Hyo-rim, will air every Wednesday and Thursday nights starting November 9.
