June 19, a source from the upcoming MBC drama “The King Loves,” starring Im Siwan and Girls’ Generation’s YoonA, revealed that writer Song Ji Na took the lead as the main writer for the new drama.
This is Song Ji Na’s first comeback to K-dramas in three years since writing the popular KBS drama “Healer,” which aired late 2014 and starred Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young.
Other works under Song Ji Na’s name include “The Great Doctor” (2012), starring Lee Min Ho and Kim Hee Sun; “The Legend” (2007), starring Bae Yong Joon and Lee Ji Ah; and, one of the most popular K-dramas of all time, “Sandglass” (1995), starring Choi Min Soo and Go Hyun Jung.
“The King Loves,” based on a novel of the same name, is about the intertwined loves and desires of three people in the Goryeo dynasty. The drama will air in July, following the end of MBC’s “Lookout.”
