In a news article published by Soompi, an industry source reportedly revealed, “Screenwriter Kim Eun Sook is preparing a drama that will begin filming in the second half of the year. It will air at the end of the year at the earliest or the first half of next year at the latest. Song Hye Kyo was chosen for the lead role.”
There's no word yet as to what exactly the drama will be about and what role Hye Kyo will be playing, but the aforementioned project is said to be in the "casting stage" already and will be produced jointly by Hwa&Dam Pictures and Studio Dragon.
Studio Dragon has confirmed this: “Song Hye Kyo will star in screenwriter Kim Eun Sook’s new drama as the female lead,” a source from the production company told YTN Star.
The series will be helmed by producing director Ahn Gil Ho, who previously directed Record of Youth. His other notable works include Memories of the Alhambra, Forest of Secrets, and Watcher.
Hye Kyo last worked with screenwriter Kim Eun Sook for the 2016 hit drama Descendants of the Sun, in which she starred alongside her ex-husband Song Joong Ki. Since then, the 39-year-old actress took on the lead role with Park Bo Gum for Encounter, which wrapped up in 2019.
Here's to hoping that 2021 will finally gift us with another Song Hye Kyo drama!
