Actress Son Ye-jin and actor Lee Min-ki will co-star in a new film tentatively titled "Spellbound", announced the film's promoter Art Service on Thursday.

According to the press release by Art Service, Son will play the female lead who starts seeing ghosts after an accident and Lee, a magician who performs his magic shows with ghosts.

The two open up to each other -- the first time for them to do so to someone -- with the help of alcohol. Son's character had been unable to pursue a social and romantic life due to the ghosts and Lee starts taking interest in her.

Son made her debut in 2001 through MBC drama "A Delicious Proposal" and has since appeared in many successful TV series and movies including "Summer Scent" (KBS, 2003), "Alone in Love" (SBS, 2006) "Personal Taste" (MBC, 2010) and movie "The Classic" in 2003.

Lee made his debut in the entertainment industry in 2005 with his role in the drama "Be Strong, Geum-Soon!" (MBC, 2005) followed by appearing in the series "Really Really Like You" (MBC, 2006) and "Evasive Inquiry Agency" (KBS, 2007) and films "A Good Day to Have an Affair" (2007) and the Korean blockbuster "Haeundae" (2009), which was the highest-grossing Korean film that year.
