It has just been confirmed that IU will be starring opposite actor Lee Joonki in a new drama.
Entitled "Scarlet Heart", the new drama is the Korean version of a famous Chinese television series, which in turn was based on a book of the same title.
The drama is a romantic fantasy in which a 21st century woman is sent back to a historical time period and is forced to adjust to a comparatively primative lifestyle.
The Chinese version of the drama was immensely popular all over Asia, resulting in high anticipation for the Korean version.
According to the Korean media, the new drama starring IU and Lee Joonki is roughly scheduled to air in the second half of 2016, so stay tuned to moonROK for more details on the singer's new drama.
