Song Jong Ki might be planning to make a 'youthful' return to the small screen.

The speculation comes after his agency shared a statement in the wake of the swirling reports on Thursday, January 18.

Earlier the day, OSEN reported that the Descendent of the Sun star is slated to star in new drama MY YOUTH – working title– that is being produced under his current agency’s banner.

Shortly after a slew of such reports, Joong Ki’s agency HighZium Studio, reacted to the news, releasing a statement that read, "Song Jong Ki received an offer to star in the new drama 'MY YOUTH,' and he is reviewing the offer."

The forthcoming drama will be penned by Park Si Hyun, the scriptwriter of the hit JTBC drama Run On, and will be shot under HighZium Studio productions.

Not to mention, the Vincenzo star earlier wowed his fans in the hit drama, Reborn Rich, and later starred in the film Hopeless which was screened at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.

Notably, if Jong Ki accepts this offer on the horizon, this will mark his first new drama since he and his wife, Katy Louise Saunders, entered parenthood and welcomed their first child in June 2023.

The arrival of their baby was announced by Jong Ki’s agency in an update at that time, "Song Joong Ki became the father of a baby boy in Italy."

The actor also took to his official fan cafe to personally share the happy news with his fans, along with an adorable photo of his son holding his finger.
