Actress Park Min-young has confirmed to take part in JYJ member Kim Jaejoong's drama set to air on MBC next month.
In "Timeslip Dr. Jin" (tentative title), an adaptation of the Japanese manga "Dr. Jin," Park will play a double role by going back and forth between the Joseon dynasty and the present time, according to a press release by the show's promoter Lee Kim Production on Thursday.
The actress will portray a doctor named Yoo Mi-na in 2012, while in Joseon Dynasty she will play Hong Young-rae, a daughter from a fallen noble family.
"Timeslip Dr. Jin" is directed by Han Hee, who also helmed the award-winning TV series "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" (KBS, 2010), "City Hunter" (SBS, 2011) and "Glory Jane" (KBS, 2011).
With the upcoming drama, Park will be teaming up with the director once again, and two other big name stars --Song Seung-heon and Lee Beom-soo -- will be taking main roles as well.
Through magical powers he travels back to the 1980s in the Joseon Dynasty and starts developing medicines to save people from dying. In the story, Kim will play a military officer.
The show will hit the airwaves on May 26 after the current "Supper of the Gods" ends its run.
