Rom-Com Queen Lee Ha-na Returns to Airwaves

Actress Lee Ha-na has returned to television in a new romantic comedy after a five-year absence. The 32-year-old plays a clumsy office worker in the tvN drama "The King of High School Manners".

The Chosun Ilbo met Lee on set in Ilsan, Gyeonggi Province, on Monday.

"I cannot deny that I'm good at playing bubbly roles in rom coms", she said confidently, adding that she reevaluated her career during her time off. "I thought a lot about what fans want to see from me during the break".

Lee was known for her quirky but lovable characters from previous dramas but felt typecast despite fans' support.

"I had a hard time because the roles I wanted were different from what fans expected from me", she said. "But now I've come to terms with it and try to focus my efforts on doing what I'm good at. I just hope people can relieve some of their stress from everyday life by watching my dramas -- like a nice cup of coffee".

"I imitated characters a lot from animations and cartoons when I was young and that may be the reason why my voice is a bit fun and cartoonish. It seems people find it interesting", she explained.

Lee said she doesn't go out much when not working and likes to write and sing songs at home. She plans to release an album of her songs in September. One of her songs was even used in her current drama.

"I wrote the song when I was 20. Nobody except my family had heard it before. It's just about feelings and thoughts I had at that time", she said.
