Song Ji-hyo, the reigning queen on Running Man, makes a return to the small screen as intern reporter Cho Min-joo in the upcoming Kdrama Crime Squad. The drama, that also stars Kim Seung-woo and Song Il-gook, follows the lives of detectives as they solve crimes in Gangnam.
This is the first drama that Ji-hyo has done in 4 years since Jumong, which also starred Song Il-gook and ran from May 2006 through March 2007 (dang, I’d take a break too). She did however star in two movies: 2007’s Sex is Zero 2, and as the queen in the infamous A Frozen Flower of 2008.
Ji-hyo’s character is a bright and impressionable reporter and although she has a kind heart, she is a lonely person. Ji-hyo has said that she is excited and nervous about returning to the drama scene after so long. Crime Squad is scheduled to begin airing on February 28th on KBS after the completion of Dream High.
