In addition to this, KBS clarified that the possible program is “not a follow-up to ‘The Seasons: Lee Hyori’s Red Carpet.'”

With the news regarding Lee Young Ae’s return to the small screen, not to mention her first program as a talk show host, fans expressed their excitement to see the top star in a different light. 

However, it seemed like fans needed to wait a bit longer after the network dropped an update regarding the broadcast. 

In a report, a KBS official shared that despite the “production team having several in-depth discussions with Lee Young Ae regarding the launch of a talk show, it was ultimately canceled. 

The reason behind it is the “difficulties in scheduling and composition.”

Interestingly, despite the cancellation of her upcoming talk show, Lee Young Ae is set to portray an exciting character. 

After 20 years, the top star will be reprising her role as Dae Jang Geum. 

Per reports, her agency, Fantagio, announced that the iconic K-drama “Jewel in the Palace” is set to be released in theaters. 

On top of it, officials are “gearing up to start filming in October.”

As for the top star, the representative shared that they have “wrapped up signing the contract with the drama script writer” and with Lee Young Ae as the lead star. 

The upcoming movie “Uinyeo Dae Jang Geum” will focus on Jang Geum’s life story as the female physician, or “uniyeo.”

In addition, Lee Young Ae’s upcoming movie is planned to be released in early 2025. 

Interestingly, “”Uinyeo Dae Jang Geum” will be the actress’ return to the big screen after 6 years since she appeared in the 2019 “Bring Me Home.”
