The agency said Thursday that Yunho will play Yoo Eun-ho, a heartthrob who has the special power to read people’s minds, in the rom-com drama based on a web comic. In the series, Yoo falls in love with a woman who has a split personality.

The drama marks the singer-turned-actor’s first project since he was discharged from military service a month ago. Directed by Song Hyun-woon, who was behind hit dramas, such as tvN’s “Another Oh Hae-young,” the upcoming drama is likely to be highly anticipated, said an agency official. Yunho will begin filming in late May.

“Meloholic” will be a multi-platform drama produced by the same team that directed KBS2’s “Moonlight Drawn by Clouds.”
