According to a press release by the show's producer on Wednesday, the actress has been cast for the role of Hwang Mi-jin, who is given orders to kill character Jin-yi, to be played by Lee Na-young.
"I am glad to make a comeback in a high-quality drama with the best director and writer", the actress was quoted as saying. "Please look forward to it because I am going to get rid of the pure, innocent image and transform into a femme fatale".
Yoon will be joining the show's high-profile cast which so far includes multi-talented entertainer Rain, Daniel Henney, Lee Jung-jin, Gong Hyung-jin plus Japanese actors Takenaka Naoto and Uehara Takako of J-pop idol group Speed.
Filming for "The Fugitive Plan B", about a hefty sum of money popping up sixty years after it disappeared in times of the Korean War, will take place in various Asian cities including Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Shanghai, Beijing, Macau and Hong Kong.
The 34-year-old actress made her debut in 1994 thru KBS TV series "Love Greeting" and has starred in several dramas including "Did We Really Love" (MBC, 1999) and "Snowflakes" (KBS, 2001).
She has been leading an active career in Japan since appearing in NHK TV's "Mouichido Kisu" in 2000, starring alongside Kyoki Fukada in "Fighting Girl" (Fuji, 2001) and Kimura Takyua in "Good Luck!!" (TBS, 2003)
