Soo Ae and Joo Ji Hoon are returning to the small screen after two years.

Soo Ae and Joo Ji Hoon have been chosen as the leads for SBS′ new drama, Mask, which is awaiting broadcast in May. Soo Ae and Joo Ji Hoon are returning to television after roughly two years since dramas Yawang and Medical Top Team, respectively.

As they are both actors who the viewers trust for a worthy performance, attention is on the rise to see how things will turn out when the two meet together. The production company, Golden Thumb Pictures, stated, "It is the best combination. We′re anticipating the synergy."

Mask is about a woman who hides her past to become a chaebol daughter-in-law and a man who tries to protect the woman he loves without any terms. The drama draws on competition, secret strife, conspiracy, and revenge with people wanting to expose the woman′s secret as others try to hide it. The drama was written by Choi Ho Chul, who wrote Secret, which received over 20 percent in ratings.

Soo Ae will act as Ji Sook, who says her happiness is the 3 million won one month interest on her debts and that love is a waste of money. After living in hardship, paying back the debt her father left her, she ends up living the chaebol life of a woman who looks like her. She later gets caught in a whirlpool of events.

Joo Ji Hoon will act as Min Woo, who was forced to become an heir at the young age of seven, growing up without innocence, family love, friendship and love. After meeting Eunha through a political scheme created by his family, he stays mum when he finds out that she′s actually Ji Sook, who just looked alike. He begins to feel emotions he′s never felt as he sees Ji Sook acting in a way he′s never seen a chaebol woman act.

The writing for Mask is already 80 percent completed. After reading the strong and charming script, Soo Ae and Joo Ji Hoon agreed to appear in the drama.

"With a very long preparation period with majority of the script secured, a high quality drama can be anticipated," stated Golden Thumb Pictures. "With Choi Ho Chul′s script and the works of director Boo Sung Chul, who led My Girlfriend is Gumiho and Jang Ok Jung, as well as the good acting of Soo Ae and Joo Ji Hoon, a drama that will represent 2015 will come out."

Mask will broadcast in May following The Girl Who Sees Smells.
