Song Hye-kyo is gearing up to make a comeback to the silver screen in her home country for the first time in a decade.

The Korea Times confirmed after the film's local distributor announced on Friday that The Descendants of the Sun star will be starring in The Priests spin-off titled Dark Nuns.

The sequel has confirmed the casting in which Hye-Kyo, 42, will be featured as an exorcist nun alongside co-stars Lee Jin-Wook, Jeon Yeo-been, and Huh Joon-Ho.

Led by the directions of Kwon Hyeok-Jae, the Dark Nuns is a sequel to a 2015 exorcism movie that amassed commercial and critical success penned and directed by Jan Jae-Hyun.

The storyline of the movie, whose shooting will commence on February 22, as reported by Soompi, revolves around the story of nuns who perform exorcisms and strive to save a boy, Moon Woo Jin, possessed by an evil spirit.

The Glory actress will take on the role of Sister Junia, a brave, decisive, and determined nun who stepped forward to save the young lad’s life.

Meanwhile, Yeo Been will play Sister Michaela, who will land a helping hand to Junia despite the chaotic plot.

Jin Wook and Joon Ho netted the roles of Father Paolo and Andrea, respectively, having different expertise.

The supernatural thriller will mark the South Korean actress's first appearance in a Korean movie in ten years since she last starred in My Brilliant Life in 2014.

Following her performance alongside Gang Dong-won, she ventured into Chinese cinema, featuring in The Crossing series.
