SEOUL, Aug. 30 (Yonhap) -- A new MBC drama supported by Chinese investment will air in May, welcoming news amid a near drought in cultural exchanges between the two nations, Seoul-based PR agency The Tik Tok said Thursday.

The PR company said China's Hangzhou Jiaping Pictures has confirmed that it will make an investment of an unidentified amount in the production of the spy romance titled "Different Dreams." For the last few years, there has been nearly no joint production of entertainment shows between Seoul and Beijing.

The historic epic series, featuring Yoo Ji-tae and Lee Yo-won, is timed for the centennial anniversary of the establishment of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea in Shanghai during the Japanese colonial period (1910-1945).

Yoo plays Kim Won-bong, a real-life independent fighter and the leader of the Heroic Corps, and Lee plays a surgeon raised in a Japaneses family.

Writer Cho Kyu-won of the popular "Iris" series and producer Yoon Sang-ho of "The Legend" and "Saimdang, Memoir of Colors" will join forces to produce the series.
