Actress Yoon Son-ha, who has made appearances in Japanese TV shows, will
return to Korea after a 2-year hiatus and play the leading role in Someone to
Love, which is based on a popular comic book series written by Kang Pul.
Yoon Son-ha put her career on hold after giving birth earlier this year but
has recently appeared on Japanese shows. She will make her comeback in Korea
by appearing in this new MBC TV series.
Yoon Son-ha will play the role of Lim Mi-rang who is the owner of a milk
distribution store. Lim Mi-rang is a 33-year old single mom who lost her parents
to a car accident when she was 18 years old and was raised by her grandparents
after that tragedy. An anonymous donor gives her a large sum of money which
she uses to open a milk distribution store and she repays the kindness of her
grandparents by paying the expenses for their vacation trip.
Although she has a kind heart, she had irreconcilable differences with her
husband and got a divorce. She raises her daughter as a single mom and tries
to be a good provider and a loving mother at the same time.
Yoon Son-ha came to the script reading session held on December 7th with
a bright smile and immersed herself in her new role.

which proceeded in a light-hearted atmosphere. The veteran actors displayed
professionalism during the script reading session by giving dramatic performances.
