Lee Min Jung Considering Small Screen Comeback

Lee Min Jung is considering her small screen comeback. The actress is reviewing a role in an upcoming SBS comedy tentatively titled "Goodbye My Precious One." Although it was reported in the Korean media that she already accepted the role, her agency insists that no decision has yet been made.

"Lee Min Jung is reviewing the script and has not yet decided whether to take the role," said her agency MS Team Entertainment.

An SBS representative also told the Korean media outlet OSEN that her drama participation is under discussion.

"Nothing has been confirmed."

Lee Min Jung's last small screen role was playing a woman who comes to regret her divorce in the drama "Cunning Single Lady." One of the reasons she has not been seen on the small screen in two years is her new real-life role as a mom. She gave birth to her first child, a son in March 2015.  

In the new drama Lee Min Jung would play Shin Dae Hye, a character that has been described as the perfect wife and daughter-in-law.

Shin Dae Hye is kind and devoted to her in-laws, is good at saving money and looks beautifully groomed even if she dresses frugally and does her own hair. But there has to be a catch. No one can really be that perfect.

The fantasy comedy is reportedly based on a Japanese novel titled "Mr. Tsubakiyama's Seven Days." The novel tells the story of a businessman who gets to return to earth for seven days after he dies and take care of some important business that he did not get to resolve. But there is a hitch. He has to take care of that business in another body.

In November the Korean media outlet Newsen reported that both singer-actor Rain and actress Kang So Ra received offers to appear this afterlife drama. It was reported that Rain would play the businessman and that Kang So Ra would play the young woman whose body he  has to inhabit on his extra seven days on earth. But there is, as yet, no word as to how Lee Min Jung's role relates to this body swap.

"Goodbye, My Precious One" will air after "Remember" ends in February.
