It has been two years since Gong last acted on TV, in MBC’s 2011 rom-com “The Greatest Love.” She enjoyed much popularity for her role as an aspiring chef in MBC’s 2010 workplace romantic comedy “Pasta.”

“I am personally very scared of the horror genre,” said Gong through her agency. “But I was really attracted to the characters and the story of the upcoming show.”

Writers Hong Jung-eun and Hong Mi-ran, who co-wrote the scripts for “The Greatest Love” and “My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox,” are writing the script for the upcoming “Master’s Sun.” It is Gong’s second time starring in the Hong sisters’ work.

Jin Hyuk, who previously directed SBS dramas including “Prosecutor Princess” and “City Hunter” is directing the upcoming drama series.

“Master’s Sun” is scheduled to be broadcast in August.
