K-drama fans know her as the iconic leading lady in shows like Jewel in the Palace and Inspector Koo, while cinephiles may recognize her as Lady Vengeance herself, but wherever you know her from, there’s little doubt that Lee Young-ae always brings her a-game whatever project she’s in.

That’s the main pull of the upcoming K-drama Maestra: Strings of Truth: it’s starring Lee and in a powerful, Tár-esque role, no less. According to the released synopsis, Lee plays a world-renowned conductor who leads an equally distinguished orchestra in South Korea, but beneath the precision and glamour hides deep dark secrets that (at least the trailer teases) will involve some bloodshed. It’s loosely based on the 2018 French series Philharmonia, which covers the complexities of the fact that only 5% of conductors in the world are female.
